A brief fly-through of our history

It all began in 1885, when Abel Besins and Joseph Lebeau partnered to create a medicinal wine, which turned out to be a big success. The beginning of the 20th century marked a transitional period, transforming us from a small laboratory into a global pharmaceutical company.

We went on to make a ground-breaking achievement in the world of pharmacology and endocrinology in 1972 when we were the first to produce a gel-based bioidentical progesterone preparation, Progestogel®. In the 1980s and '90s, the company went on to create treatments for both male and female hormonal conditions. And the rest, as they say, is history. Take a look at the timeline below to find out more.
