For over thirty years, at PiLeJe Industrie we have been using our know-how and market expertise to help you grow your innovation strategies. Guided by our pursuit of industrial excellence, our laboratory supports you in your tailored ingredient development projects.


Our market expertise

The nutraceutical and cosmetic sectors are evolving fast. The revival of nutricosmetics shows this. Each day these sectors bring new challenges and opportunities. Our ingredients meet the requirements of these markets thanks to our tried and tested expertise.


Our plant and sourcing skills

We commit to: developing unique ingredients with a standardised phytochemical profile, with exclusive properties, as we guarantee the safety of sourcing as well as annual raw material volumes to implement.


The success of our industrial tools

From the ingredients to the finished product, we provide you with our analytical methods and several extraction procedures to guarantee that your extracts can be replicated and answer your specific needs.

Respecting plants: highly specialised fields and high quality extracting

Recognised plant expertise

We use highly specialised fields to off er you the best of plants. From selecting the plant species to managing growth paths, our desire is to supply you with high quality.

We carry out agronomic trials with the help of technical institutes and partners from the world of agriculture.
We develop a new ‘Increased Plant’ approach by guiding the selection of our plant species towards the maximum percentage of relevant molecules.

Plantain is one of the plants tested in the heart of PiLeJe’s plant innovation laboratory.

  • 3 years of agronomic research
  • 7 studied varieties
  • 11 agronomic criteria followed up
  • 300 phytochemical analyses carried out

Total plant expertise from selecting to standardised extracts

  • A plant contains up to 250 reputed active substances and has several hundred different species.
  • Species, origin, terroir, harvest season, first processing…
  • The quality and selection of plant raw material are prerequisites for obtaining high quality extracts.

We also respect the integrity of all of the molecules present which constitute the phytochemical profile of our extract, a true marker of its effectiveness.

From selecting to high fidelity plant extraction we are capable of supplying you with the best.

We manage each stage of your project

We have an analytical platform and 2 sites dedicated to plant extraction with a high-performing technological park. This is where we carry out each step of your project with great attention to detail and respecting the highest quality standards. Each one of our sites disposes of its own quality control laboratory.

Sourcing of plant raw material

Researching, selecting, tracing, establishing an identity card for our raw materials, creating a highly specialised field.

Plant and active ingredient identification

Developing analysis and identification methods and dosage of relevant molecules.


Choice of extraction methods and techniques according to your requirement specifications and the desired indications.

Industrial Transposition

Scale up : from the laboratory to an industrial scale.

Manufacturing ingredients on a certified site

And made available after release by our quality department who certifies conformity with your requirement specifications.

Developing and manufacturing a finished product

Full-service off er: theoretical formulation, analytical management, industrial transposition, packaging, manufacturing.

Creating your ingredient

We master several extraction and biotransformation techniques for creating tailor-made very high added value plant extracts. We select the most suitable methods according to the desired active ingredients and your requirement specifications. In this way you will be able to obtain clean label extracts, with ownership or not. All of these criteria we will define together.
