ROELMI HPC is the global expert for both active and functional ingredients in Health & Personal Care markets.
At ROELMI HPC, we believe that only the daily action with respect for the Environment could lead to a durable result. Following this leitmotiv, represented by a drop in our corporate logo, we perform sustainable innovation: a real step forward on the sustainability road.
Our program NO IMPACT IN PROGRESS® (NIP) applies to all products and technologies, and it stands as a mission for every process focusing on Quality, People safety and Environment preservation. In fact, we are approaching the future through innovation and evolution. We aim at protecting the value of Nature and People in product manufacturing. We care about the environmental impact of our productions by adopting eco-sustainable processes and renewable raw materials. We aim at keeping high quality standards as well as high efficacy. On selected product line, we applied our SAF-e-CACY® concept of excellence. Aimed at reaching maximal efficacy maintaining highest safety results, the concept includes a repetitive efficacy control on every production batch. Our portfolio is developed through two main technologies: Biotech & Nature. The first one, Biotech, has been created by fine-tuning the standard fermentation process. In fact, the knowledge about bacteria and common steps of technologies brought to cutting-edge ingredients and multiple applications. Probiotics and 2.0 Hyaluronans represent here the inner innovation for years. A wide selection of proprietary probiotic strains belonging to Lactobacilli, Bifidobacteria and other species are manufactured to reach the highest potency for a various number of applications. Innovation in Hyaluronans means the invention of Full-spectrum Hyaluronans where the focus is not on a specific molecular weight, but rather on the efficacy of a range of fractions working in synergy, just as naturally happens in our body.
The second one, the Natural technology, includes soft methodologies whose first aim is nature’s respect, followed by the recreation of nature within active ingredients. The integrity of the plant comes first, followed by the integrality of plant compounds inside ROELMI HPC ingredients. The real innovation of the products lies in the plant hidden inside them. The use of soft technologies like solvent-free techniques, physical steps (pressure, temperature, or mechanic action) do not alter natural molecules. We focus on biological efficacy, going beyond chemical composition. Biology completes chemistry: Nature’s active systems are based on synergic ranges of compounds, rather than the purity of a single active element. At SupplySide West, we will be more than glad to welcome you at the Probiotics Resource Center on November 9th @ 10:30am-11:10am to show our latest research for woman’s health.
A novel food supplement for woman intimate healthcare based on a patented and proprietary probiotic complex (L. plantarum PBS067, L. rhamnosus LRH020 and B. lactis BL050) has been developed to counteract urogenital issues affecting women quality of life: IntimiqueTM Femme. A first human pilot study confirms the ability of the probiotic strains to colonize human vaginal epithelium after oral administration. A second clinical trial has been performed to assess the efficacy in restoring healthy vaginal microbiota after antibiotics treatment and in reducing BV recurrences rate.
Here we present astonishing results referring to both short-term and long-term observation. Women who followed a supplementation program with the probiotic complex, 3 Billion CFU per daily dose for 14 consecutive days, showed a significant reduction in recurrences rate in the following month: from 50% (reference group and bibliographic data) to 22% (active group). Objective physician examination and vaginal wet mount microscopy supported this result, showing a greater microbiota restoration and a general symptoms improvement in the active group compared to the negative control group. After following four administration cycles (1-week treatment/month) recurrences rate was dramatically dropped from 44% in the negative control to 16% in the probiotic group. Vaginal microbiome intervention through probiotic complex (commercial name: IntimiqueTM Femme) is an unbelievable innovation that can allow women quality of life to improve and chronic suffering to decline, being a new opportunity for personalizing health and disease management, through probiotic supplements targeting vaginal microbiome. Intimique Femme is available for licensing options or tailor made formulations, in different galenic forms and packaging.
