For over 25 years, IFC has set in motion the most ambitious projects in the world of health.

Following the first international patent with the discovery of the antioxidant and sun photo immunoprotection based on Polypodium leucotomos fern extract (Fernblock), IFC specialised in the development of cosmeceuticals and nutraceuticals achieving significant market share worldwide.

The development of patented ingredients such as IFC-Fernblock, IFC-SCA®, IFC-AM3 or IFC-CAF, all with extensive scientific endorsement, are the continuous reflection of its innovative and entrepreneurial spirit to provide immunomodulatory and regenerative products designed for health professionals and their patients.


Constant reinvestment in R&D projects and its organic growth of over 20% in recent years set the company as a reference point. Its investment in a new sustainable R&D centre in Cantabria is a clear example of the commitment and entrepreneurial spirit of the company.

Its scientific team studies and defines the strategy based on recent advances in know-how in order to find new patents and solutions in health matters, through sustainable production.

The creation of stable employment, the generation of added value to socierty and our commitment with sustainability ensure that entrepreneurship is one of our greatest values.


With a 400-strong team located in its various centres, IFC researches, develops, manufactures, markets and exports its products to over 80 countries.

Its products are consolidated in the most demanding markets, thanks to its innovation and its high quality standards and business excellence. IFC is the leading Spanish pharmaceutical laboratory in medical prescriptions and aims to become a reference worldwide.

To achieve this ambitious target, it constantly updates its agreements with the most important research centres, its designs its factories to comply with the most exacting quality, energy efficiency and environmental standards and certifies its facilities with the various regulatory bodies.


Business growth and consolidation have been possible thanks also to the individuals who form part of IFC. Under our motto "Together we´ll go far" the employees of IFC have embraced the company’s dreams, contributing enthusiasm and dedication.

With this same involvement, IFC tries to get close to those most in need, through its involvement in projects in the Turkana region. Over the last 20 years, IFC has worked hard in that area to build and develop dams, roads, wells, farming land, power supply units and schools in order to equip this population with basic resources.

Its collaboration with the Lo que de Verdad Importa Foundation (What Really Matters Foundation) is another example of the social engagement and commitment with the human values of IFC, through the dissemination of testimonies on values to youngsters through stories of achievement, entrepreneurialism and opportunity.

With growth as a standard and science, entrepreneurialism and innovation as the corner stones, together with social commitment as part of its DNA, IFC will always be associated with the world of Health, hand in hand with the best specialists and healthcare centres and institutions.
