Our history

In 1904, the French botanist and pharmacist Alexandre Gilbert developed the Feuille de Saule cut-to-size plaster, a legacy which has been passed down through 3 generations by the Batteur family within the Group that still retains the original name of the laboratory: Gilbert.

All our production sites are located in France to guarantee maximum quality delivered by highly qualified staff trained in manufacturing technologies.
