An increasing need for plant-based ingredients and flavors, the rising adoption of herbal products in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, and the surging demand for plant extracts in the food and beverage industries have fueled the market demand for plant extract. With this in mind, Priyanka Manghnani and Rishabh Taneja founded Acumen Lifesciences ten years ago based on a solid friendship, to make it one of the most prominent companies in the herbal, pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food industries.
Acumen Lifesciences, founded in 2013, is a healthcare provider with a strong scientific foundation. They hold certifications in GMP, HACCP, ISO 9001:2015, ISO 22000:2018, HALAL, and KOSHER. “We work hard to ensure that every product is high-quality and affordable. Scientific research underpins all our decisions. We study all aspects of herbs and their functions to learn more. We push plant-based ingredients to their limits. Our ability to innovate drives us. Over the past decade, the company has established long-term relationships with clients and suppliers in more than 15 countries thanks to its commitment and expertise", proudly says Priyanka Manghnani, Director.
Unique Natural Products for Sustainable Lifestyle
The diverse product portfolio of Acumen includes herbal extracts, enzymes, fruit and vegetable powders, nutraceuticals, and dietary supplements for the pharmaceutical industry, the personal care industry, the food & beverage industry, and the cosmetics industry. In addition, the company's most important herbal extracts include Curcumin 95 percent, water-soluble Curcumin, Garcinia cambogia extract, Ashwagandha extract, Boswellia extract, and Guggul extract, to name a few.
In Acumen's facility, herbs are sourced from sustainable sources, active ingredients are extracted using gentle methods, and products are customized according to customer specifications.
In order to provide such superior products, Acumen employs a team of seasoned scientists with cutting-edge equipment. They work closely with customers on research, customization, product formulation, and clinical validation to create high-performing products. Secondly, the company’s testing ensures active specifications, and product safety with proper documentation for the product’s validation. Afterward, the product is safely packaged and delivery is done by collaborating with delivery partners for every order on time. And unlike other vendors, the company offers after-sale services and customer relations. With the help of such exceptional products and services, the company has helped organizations around the globe to create remarkable products with extracts.
“We take our cues from the natural world. Greener exploration aids in managing costs and preserving the environment. Each herb is carefully monitored and sourced using only the most ethical and environmentally friendly methods possible. Quality assurance and control are ensured by carefully designed processes and first-rate machinery. We have a firm grasp on security, reliability, and modern technology. We do everything from ICP MS for heavy metal analysis and control to HPTLC for product fingerprinting to headspace GC for residual solvent analysis to GC MS for pesticide residue analysis”, says Rishabh Taneja, Director.
