The adventure began for me in Brazil where I grew up.

After completing a Master’s in Food Science, I moved to France to pursue my PhD at the Faculty of Oenology in Bordeaux. There, I experimented with and refined techniques for extracting aromas and polyphenols from grapes and wine.

Following several years in both public and private research in fine wine analysis laboratories, I joined Naturex to develop natural ingredients for the nutrition and health markets.

During this time, I worked on plant extraction and creative design to develop customized compositions at both laboratory and industrial scales. I created over 350 natural ingredients, including several multi-million-euro successes.

This led me to found Inaturals in 2018, a consulting firm specializing in the creation of 100% natural ingredients and their intellectual property protection. I also co-founded Phénix en Provence and developed an industrial upcycling platform that produces 100% natural cosmetic ingredients from tomato by-products in Provence.

Do you need to create a natural chemical composition to target a specific cosmetic or nutricosmetic claim? With the creative design of plant extraction, I can help you. Let’s connect!
