R&D


Difass International realises modern and innovative products thanks to a profound knowledge of all components’ characteristics and mechanisms of action, supported by studies and experimental evidences on the health claims of such ingredients. 

Difass’ research guarantees high safety profile of its products, in conjunction with clinical examination of their effects on health. The collaboration between R&D department and the most important Universities and Research Institutes guarantees up-to-date knowledges and the possibility to conduct appropriate clinical trials.



R&D department collaborates with qualified third companies that put their know how in terms of manufacturing technologies at Difass’ service. Difass has the exclusive use of several patented technologies (release, gastroprotection, etc.) for its own products, aimed to support the bioavailability of active ingredients, in order to obtain finished products with an high qualitative profile.

Researching the best safety profile and synergies, that can be created between the active components of a product, represents the goal that R&D aims to reach, without  limiting to simple ingredients’ blends.



The quality of Difass’ products identifies also in the several industrial patents in different health areas that today the company can boast for its own portfolio or to offer to third companies.

Developing effective and safe products in a health and clinical perspective is one of the goals of Difass. For this purpose, over the last ten years, several clinical trials were conducted on our portfolio, involving important Research Institutes and renowned medical professionals.



Marketing


Thanks to well-established relationships with Doctors and scholars, and through the implementation of scientific and clinical initiatives, Difass’ portfolio, consisting of products designed for several specialty areas, has always been a benchmark in the nutraceutical industry.


Qualified Medical Reps present the products to Doctors on national territory, ensuring the company a constant feedback on the market.



Quality and Safety



Quality and safety have always been distinctive features of Difass International products. Every product, in fact, since the first developing stages, has to meet strict qualitative standards that include the research and choice of the best raw materials, laboratory analysis and control over manufacturing processes, in order to ensure the complete safety of used components, of the interactions between such components and therefore, of the finished products.




In the last year, Difass International conducted over 5000 analysis on the references of its portfolio and on the ones developed for its licensee, following manufacturing and qualitative standards similar to those of the pharmaceutical industry. This business practice, even if it is not mandatory for nutraceutical companies, is essential to create really safe and high quality products.
