Home > Company > About Us


Vytrus Biotech was born in June 2009 as Phyture Biotech, a spin-off company of the Faculty of Pharmacy at the Universitat de Barcelona, from a research group with more than 40 years of experience in the technology of plant cell cultures. On 2011 we launched the company's first cosmetic ingredient, and in 2013, the first medical device, based in the plant cell cultures technology, and pioneer in the Spanish market.


In 2012 we joined the Inkemia Group, company member of the Mercado Alternativo Bursatil (MAB,  Spanish Alternative Investment Market). During 2014 we started our expansion and worldwide internationalization. On 2016, due to a new focus on the business model, broadening to different sectors, we changed the company name, becoming Vytrus Biotech.
