Cosminter, Laboratoire Polydermyl
A constantly-evolving laboratory
Set up in 1983, on the basis of a small laboratory for internal use by a dispensing pharmacy, COSMINTER is based in Vitteaux, a small town in the Auxois area, in the heart of Burgundy.
COSMINTER has for many years boasted a home of an outstanding nature. Its production facilities are housed in a mediaeval building, a market hall dating from the 12th century and listed as a historic monument by André Malraux. This is a technological achievement as the industrial space includes and preserves the authentic character of the historic building. A unique feature.
However, in 2016 the production facilities are being moved. COSMINTER is constructing a new industrial building in Fleurey sur Ouche, a few kilometres from Dijon. A building dedicated to research and to the creation of new formulae, and to producing thousands of units of cosmetics and medical preparations.
