Benefiting society through science

More than fifty years ago, PENTAPHARM (Basel, Switzerland), started out by specializing in research & development and the production of active ingredients for the pharmaceutical industry. Over the years, the company has grown to encompass not only pharmaceuticals but also diagnostics, relating to haemostasis as well to the cosmetic industry. PENTAPHARM is a dynamic, progressive and scientifically oriented company, which is built upon a firm commitment to technology and innovation in all its operating divisions. The most modern methods and procedures in research and production comply fully with ISO 9001 quality assurance standards and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

PENTAPHARM’s success is based upon a clearly defined mission statement:  

As your partner for active-ingredient solutions, PENTAPHARM will strengthen your position in the pharmaceutical and diagnostic industry by anticipating market trends, and responding with innovative technological solutions.

On August 29th, 2007 the ownership of Pentapharm was transferred to DSM Nutritional Products AG (headquarter Kaiseraugst/Switzerland), the world's leading supplier of vitamins, carotenoids and other fine chemicals to the feed, food, pharmaceutical and personal care industries.

It is the clear goal to create the global leading supplier of cosmetic active ingredients by combining DSM's excellent capabilities in claim support, test design and regulatory environment with Pentapharm's track-record in positioning and intriduction of innovative products (see also news section).
To maintain the reputation in the market and guarantee our partners the quality standards they expect the name Pentapharm as well as our unique capabilities will not only be sustained by re-enforced with our new and powerful partner DSM in the back.
