Química Verde para deixar um impacto tangível no setor da Saúde
4MEDIKS was born as a Green Chemistry start-up, specializing in the development of active ingredients of botanical origin on an industrial scale that offers sectorial solutions to contribute to improving people’s health.
The effectiveness of our active ingredients has been tested in different certified European laboratories, demonstrating their viricidal, bactericidal, fungicidal, and yeasturicidal properties.
The active ingredients are of natural origin and non-toxic.
Our mission is to leave a tangible impact on the healthcare industry.
The substance has multiple applications in the following industrial sectors:
We develop active ingredients of botanical origin for use in different processes in the agri-food sector. We develop pesticides for the eradication of several aggressive pathogens that affect a wide range of plant species worldwide, such as Xylella fastidiosa. We are also focused on developing non-toxic industrial disinfection products for fruits and vegetables that guarantee the absence of pathogens.
In the area of hospital disinfection, we have developed a non-toxic compound that has proven effective in killing viruses, bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. The fact that it is non-toxic makes it the perfect ally for hospital disinfection, such as Clostridium difficile.
The discovery of a non-toxic substance that eradicates the viruses responsible for sexually transmitted diseases has led us to devote part of our time and resources to development in the pharmaceutical area.
In this area we develop non-toxic biocides to disinfect materials and surfaces used in animal housing or transportation. This type of product is essential to prevent the spread of disease at the time of transport or in the areas where the animals are housed.
We develop active ingredients of botanical origin for the cosmetic industry that are able to transfer unique characteristics to the final products without altering them.
