Natural Product Innovation

Adding Value to Africa's Biodiversity

About us

About Us

The home of Innovators – collectively we have more than 100 years’ experience in the innovation space and have rights to several innovative technologies and have an intimate knowledge of products derived from Africa’s indigenous biodiversity and we have access to relevant IP and networks to commercialise these effectively

Africa is blessed with a rich plant biodiversity  and in Southern Africa more than 24 000 indigenous plants occurs, representing about 10% of all higher plants on Earth. There is also a long tradition of medicinal use of plants. It is estimated that at least 70% of all South Africans consult one of the more than 200 000 Traditional Healers in the country. 


More than 100 patents in the area have been filed with the involvement of at least one member of our team and we have rights to substantive know-how, technology packages and data which are essential to support the commercialisation of these natural product inventions. There are also several other leads that for which the team has know-how through their many years of experience that have the potential for late stage development and commercialization. Our intellectual property covers a broad range of potential ingredients and products from herbal medicines, complementary medicines, cosmetics, food, beverages and dietary supplements.

Strategic Intent

Innovon (Pty) Ltd is seeking investment and/or partnerships to develop this further and commercialise products in the health, food, beverage, nutraceutical and cosmetic markets

Innovon seeks investors and partners to take some of the technologies at the Proof of Concept stage to commercialisation.  We have product concepts, which include in vivo efficacy, early toxicology studies, manufacturing technologies, formulations characterised active ingredients and biological markers, with specification for quality control purposes.


In partnership we can develop full technology packages for the manufacture of these herbal remedies / products and complete the necessary clinical evaluation required by the regulatory environment in Africa for registration as complementary medicines, dietary supplements cosmetic and/or food ingredients for management and treatment of a range of lifestyle diseases.
