Ecolab - laboratoire de formulation


Let's innovate together, and we'll create or offer you formulas that meet eco-design expectations,
according to your inspiration and your specifications in our laboratory.

We can support you right through to bringing your product to market.


"We draw our inspiration from nature.
In return, we carefully consider environmental impact at every stage of development: from selecting ingredients and processes to developing high-performance formulations compatible with new packaging systems."


Our expertise in natural formulations and our ability to think "out of the box" are at your service to help you imagine and create new sensory experiences, and apply new ingredients using robust, more economical processes:

  • Creation of new formulas in response to your specifications
  • Improving or adapting an existing formula
  • Creation of an application formula to value a raw material or study the behaviour of an asset
  • Study of stability, conservation and content/container compatibility
