Lesaffre Human Care

Lesaffre Human Care was created in 2007 as a business unit of Lesaffre with the mission to develop and supply ingredients from yeast and bacteria fermentations to the global human care markets.

Leveraging more than 160 years of experience in biotechnology, Lesaffre Human Care offers ingredients with scientifically proven efficacy to the nutritional supplement, pharmaceutical, functional food and personal care industry.

Committed to providing safe and natural solutions to common health issues, we offer several probiotic ingredients targeting digestive health, which is currently one of the main development areas. Abdominal pain and discomfort are considered to be the most crippling symptoms of many gastrointestinal disorders. To tackle these, Lesaffre Human Care developed ibSium®, which proved its efficacy through several clinical and real-life studies. Because the benefits of probiotics are strain-specific, we also offer LifeinU™ L. rhamnosus GG and Lynside® Pro SCB (Boulardii) for other gut-related issues such as diarrhea or just to maintain a healthy gastro-intestinal flora.
