Press Trip to Boiron Manufacturing Facility in France
In early July, the CROS team organized a press trip for the top tier business, general interest and trade media of Russia to Boiron's manufacturing facility in Lion (France).
Editors, journalists and our staff met with professional doctors, experts and the general manager of the company Christian Boiron. We have also witnessed the manufacturing process of various types of homeopathic products, starting with the creation of mother tinctures and neutral formulations and finishing with coating of the carrier with the active ingredient.
The use of homeopathic products in medical treatment continues to be a controversial issue causing public arguments. However, homeopathy maintains a stable market position on the global level. Christian Boiron spoke to us about his vision of the sector and his perception of the industry. He expressed confidence in the fact that the interest in homeopathy that appeared in the recent decades was caused by science: many researchers tried to understand and study effects of ultralow doses. He pointed out that the main issue related to homeopathy is the poor understanding of its mode of action. However, Christian Boiron is confident that in future this phenomenon will be explained most likely by physical scientists and not chemists.
