Renowned for its expertise, unique know-how and genuine passion for plants since 1978, Alban Muller is a natural product designer dedicated to high-tech and eco-designed extracts, formulation ingredients and skin care formulas.

Since its creation in 1978, Alban Muller International has built a customer-oriented approach to quality and has aimed to enhance plants and develop innovative manufacturing processes.


A unique technology: Zeodration

Based on our strong experience, we have developed a unique process: the zeodration.

This technology has been designed to create standardized extracts that are concentrated and titrated into active molecules. This optimized drying technique is energy-efficient and ecologically clean to preserve the extract's effectiveness.

With its R&D centre and its manufacturing site in France in the Cosmetic Valley, Alban Muller masters every stage of the development and production of its eco-friendly high-performance ingredients. For more information on the Crodarom Portfolio, please visit:

Alban Muller’s sustainability commitments

Conscious of drawing raw materials from the environment and biodiversity, Alban Muller strives to limit its ecological impact and has made the choice to control its entire production chain, from plant seed to final product.
