The P4HB is produced by natural fermentation

The P4HB is a PHA (polyhydroalkanoate) biopolymer. It is recognized for its biocompatible properties. It is made up of monomers naturally present in the human body. Once implanted, P4HB is degraded by hydrolysis.

Reduce our impact on the environment

The use of biopolymers in the medical field is one of the solutions to meet the environmental and health challenges we face. By using biodegradable and non-toxic materials, we can reduce our impact on the environment while improving the health and well-being of patients and we are proud to contribute to this. We are convinced that biopolymers have a crucial role to play in the future of medicine and we are delighted to be part of this sustainable medical revolution.
