Who Are We?

Creation of cosmetic actives in compliance with pharmaceutical standards

The Exsymol company was created in 1972 by Mrs Seguin and Mr Gueyne who decided to use their pharmaceutical expertise for the cosmetic industry.
In 1973, EXSYMOL was a 4 men company on 160m2. Nowadays, the company is 5000m2 wide and employs close to 50 people.


About 25% of the employees are researchers (cell and molecular biology, biotechnology, fine chemistry).

Created in 1974 by the same contractors, the SEDIFA Lab is a monacan pharmaceutical company of about 20 people (of which 40% are executive scientists). SEDIFA Lab supports EXSYMOL for specific applications (biochemistry, microbiology, physico-chemistry, toxicology…).

The company relies on its human size and on the excellence of its executive (most of whom are scientists) for an exceptional reactivity. As a result, many cosmetic brands have put their trust in EXSYMOL for years.

Over 35 distributors ensure EXSYMOL’s sales worldwide.
