Complife France and Dermatech, a skin clinical research centre acquired by Complife, are moving to Lyon’s 8th district to boost their growth. Find out about their ambitions and how Aderly is helping the companies achieve them.

The Complife group has chosen Lyon’s 8th arrondissement, as the location for both its new French research and development (R&D) subsidiary Dermatech and the national headquarters of Complife France (coming soon).

A new lab for Dermatech and new offices for Complife France

Following Dermatech’s acquisition by Italian group Complife, the Dermatech and Complife France teams are coming together in the same building, in Lyon’s 8th arrondissement. Dermatech was initially based in nearby Tassin-la-Demi-Lune, while the head office of Complife’s French subsidiary is in Brest.

Committed to science, committed to you: this is the promise of the Complife group, a specialist in both standard and innovative dermatological tests.

The new Lyon research centre will focus primarily on assessing cosmetic products and medical devices. This move helps strengthen the Lyon metropolitan area’s expertise, as cosmetology is France’s 2nd-largest sector after aeronautics in terms of turnover and jobs.

Since October 2021, Dermatech has welcomed visitors to its new premises at 18 rue Jacqueline Auriol, in Lyon’s 8th  arrondissement. The company recruits volunteers to test products such as anti-aging creams and products suitable for all skin types and colours. These are paid studies, and people from all walks of life are welcome.
