Research and development

Our R&D team uses its expertise in green chemistry to create a more sustainable future. Its main objective is to develop ever more reliable, green and innovative chemical systems and processes.

In 2020, SOPHIM took part in the European IRODDI project, which aims to recover waste from the deodorisation process of vegetable oil refining.

“After obtaining a doctorate at the C.N.R.S., I was keen to join a team with great values. As an organic chemist, I discovered green chemistry at SOPHIM, which is more respectful of the product and the environment. It is a great source of motivation on a daily basis.”
Romain, R&D Project Manager


Our sales team works with our international partners to provide them with the keys that will enable them to meet their various challenges and is attentive to market demands.

“With more than 20 years of experience in the cosmetics industry, I am pleased to put my skills at the service of SOPHIM, a supplier of cosmetic ingredients strongly committed to sustainable development.”
