Euphidra was founded by Zeta Farmaceutici Group, the Italian pharmaceutical group among the first to bring cosmetics to pharmacies. Zeta Farmaceutici Group is made up of two companies, each with its own specializations: Zeta Farmaceutici and Marco Viti Farmaceutici. Euphidra combines the value of two major Italian traditions recognized all over the world: pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.
Wellness of the skin
Care and respect for the skin is the strategic mission Euphidra. A mission enclosed in its own name, which comes from the composition of three Greek words: good, nature, water. In a nutshell: the search for the well-being of the skin through its natural level of hydration. Hence a complete program of solutions that meet the needs of all skins, even the most sensitive ones. And that focuses on 3 fundamental factors.
1. Equilibrium between the lipid and the hydration level Lipids and water are the basis of skin vitality.
The imbalance of their concentration (with excess or lack of one of the two) can generate problems of sensitivity, dryness and irritability. EuPhidra products are designed to promote a constant equilibrium condition.
2. Prevention against free radicals Prevention is also essential for the well-being of the skin.
And the most important preventive action is certainly the one against free radicals, which over time cause the skin to go out, to lose freshness and smoothness. This is why EuPhidra formulations always use the most effective antioxidant active ingredients.
3. Skin structure: compactness and revitalization
The third pillar of the EuPhidra research. Great attention to all the functional principles that contribute to restoring firmness and vitality to the skin.

Zeta Farmaceutici was founded in Vicenza in the laboratory of a pharmacy. A small artisan business making galenic preparations that gradually grew.
Zeta Farmaceutici became an industrial company. Towards the end of the seventies the first sun products were produced.
The birth of Zeta Farmaceutici S.p.A. A passage that marked further development in research of innovative products like face creams or the natural personal hygiene lines.
With creation of the EuPhidra brand, the cosmetics and pharmaceutical divisions were separated with a view to developing and diversifying the range of cosmetics. This quickly led EuPhidra to become a leading brand in pharmacies.
EuPhidra inaugurated its line of hair colorants. A revolution that coloured the world of pharmacies for the first time. Over time, a complete hair programme was to be developed, including shampoo, conditioner and treatments.
Zeta Farmaceutici continued to grow in different directions, staying ahead of important market trends. Idea Nature was created, a pharmaceutical business specialising in research and production of dietary supplements, especially probiotics.
The new cleansing line proved to be very popular due to excellent results combined with extremely gentle action on sensitive skins.
The birth of EuPhidra make-up. Great performance backed by high quality and safety. An immediate success. And market leadership that was to strengthen over the years.
Zeta Farmaceutici took over Marco Viti Farmaceutici, a historic pharmaceutical company in Lombardy. This led to the formation of the Zeta Farmaceutici Group.
Zeta Farmaceutici Group has established itself as one of the liveliest medium-sized Italian pharmaceutical companies. One of the few that is still a manufacturer. And now it looks to the future exploring new horizons on the international market.
