Robertet Group, world leader in natural products and Aethera Biotech specialized in developing active ingredients are joining forces in the biotech phytocomplexes field. This alliance between two family-run companies, with shared values, vision, and passion for nature, is intended to create synergies to become the craftsmen of tomorrow’s plant world.

Augmented Naturality: an alliance between nature and biotech

Robertet Group's expertise in sourcing and creation of high-quality natural ingredients, combines with Aethera Biotech's scientific innovation will increase the value of the plant world. Both compagnies are committed to meet the challenges of the climate crisis, the growing demand for health and well-being, and the need to preserve natural resources.

With a deep respect for nature, Robertet and Aethera Biotech aim to redefine industry standards for active ingredients sourced from plants, while promoting sustainable development and preserving biodiversity. To offer natural solutions, both companies draw on advances in biotechnology to sustainably produce plant-based ingredients.

Robertet, a pioneer in the extraction of natural ingredients, combines tradition and innovation to extract the best from nature through environmentally friendly processes and green chemistry. Robertet offers a range of active ingredients, including Superoxide Dismutase SOD B®, a powerful antioxidant extracted from a unique melon variety. This innovation has led to the launch of active ingredients: Extramel®, Dimpless®, Holimel® and Melorun®, each providing benefits in different areas. Aethera Biotech pioneers innovative biotechnological phytocomplexes through its patented CROP® (Controlled Release of Optimized Plants) technology, ensuring 100% natural ingredients without environmental contaminants, solvents, or preservatives. This mimetic process to nature enables sustainable production of high-quality ingredients with proven effectiveness fostering “Augmented Naturality”.

This approach offers constancy and permanent availability, regardless of season or geographical boundaries, while ensuring high safety and respect for biodiversity.

Through this partnership with Aethera Biotech,  Robertet aims to enrich its portfolio of natural active ingredients, broadening its range of high-quality products to meet the diversified needs of its customers.

Additionally, Robertet will gradually become the exclusive distributor of products derived from this patented technology in European countries (except Italy), strengthening its commitment to offering natural ingredients, excellence, and innovation.

"This collaboration with Aethera Biotech testifies to our innovation strategy through the pursuit of targeted partnerships. With Aethera, we are reinventing traditional sourcing to meet the market's growing needs for active ingredients, while minimizing our impact on the environment. This greatest of two visionary companies takes us to new heights of Augmented Naturality."

Our CROP® platform will be the booster to study and develop innovative products. We are convinced that this technology has enormous potential yet to be explored, with a dual objective: to obtain standardized, high-quality, and effective plant phyto-complexes, and to contribute respect our planet.”
Daniele Baghi, CEO Aethera Biotech
