Bilateral Meetings

  • Wednesday (2:30 p.m. - 15.50 p.m)

The CONTIPRO holding has been involved in the research, development and biotechnological production of active ingredients for the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries for over twenty two years. With excellent production quality and extensive research facilities, Contipro is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of hyaluronic acid and derived applications.

The holding places a huge emphasis on innovation and in-house research, which explains why almost 40% of its employees are R&D lab experts. An umbrella for all is provided by the parent, Contipro Group, a service company set up in 2004 to cover technological support, administration and all business activities. Through its distribution networks, the holding exports 95% of its output to more than 60 countries worldwide. A recent study showed that Contipro currently controls 60% of the European and 30% of the world market in hyaluronan. The oldest of the holding’s companies, Contipro Pharma, specializes in the manufacture of sodium hyaluronate pharmaceutical grade and other active substances for the pharmaceutical industry and finished pharmaceutical products made from hyaluronic acid. Contipro Biotech, which produces hyaluronic acid cosmetic grade and other active ingredients for products to counter the effects of skin ageing, was founded in 1997.

The research activities of the Contipro laboratories concentrate on hyaluronan, tissue engineering with an overlap into regenerative medicine, wound healing, carrier systems for targeted drug delivery, skin ageing and nanotechnology. The company has also developed a desktop electrospinning device (4SPIN), which is being sold to laboratories all over the world as well as used for in-house research and experimental production of nanofibers and nanomaterials. Large-scale production of nanofiber cosmetic is ensured by a tailor-made continuous electrospinning device.

      Nanofibers and nanomaterials

      The holding produces nanofibers and nanomaterials from various polymers with the emphasis on natural, biocompatible and biodegradable materials. We are constantly developing our technology and procedures to keep producing innovative nanotechnological solutions. Our current portfolio includes materials made of more than 13 different polymers and their composites:

      Raw materials
      - non-woven fabrics (randomly oriented or aligned)
      - coreshell fibers
      - tubular structures (inner diameter is in mm)
      - nanopatterning
      - nanocoating

      We are open to research cooperation to further develop and our materials (especially in the field of healthcare and medicine).
