Company History

Dandlen Bioscience, Lda is a spin-off company of the University of the Algarve, with headquarters in the Business Park of Alcoutim, in the Algarve region in Portugal. Our target are the plants and the obtaining of diverse derived products, precisely from there arises our brand Pharmaplant®.

We started our activity by producing essential oils from aromatic and medicinal plants (PAM) through the technique of steam distillation. The company approaches R & D as a way to obtain new products, with a cooperation protocol with the University of Algarve and other scientific partners, with whom it develops different lines of research in the areas of Biotechnology and Natural Products. We also produce Vegetable Extracts that are raw material for cosmetic, wellness and food applications. We specialize in obtaining products derived from Opuntia ficus indica and Lycium sp. (goji) In order to obtain all our products, we use the exclusively Portuguese raw material and take a row strategy based on partnerships with regional producers. Quality is a matter of reference for us. We have Biological Certification, HACCP, and ISO 9001. In the case of essential oils, for Aromatherapy, GS-MS quality control and ISO 9001 certification ensure product traceability. We provide consulting services and development of new products.
