Established over 30 years ago, BOHUS is a Swedish researcher, developer, and manufacturer of premium-quality hyaluronic acid. We like to think of ourselves as the world’s smartest HA producers.
BOHUS defines the paradigm shift in how high quality hyaluronic acid products are manufactured, ordered, and delivered to customers.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule within our bodies that has a unique ability to bind moisture. Its lubricating and shock-absorbing properties are utilised in the fields of orthopedics and ophthalmology. In softer tissue, it supports structure and elasticity, allowing for safe, aesthetic enhancement.
By continuously investing in research and design, we have developed a unique manufacturing process that offers precision hyaluronic acid products for each indication. All of this occurs at our state-of-the-art production facilities on the Swedish west coast, at the heart of Scandinavian MedTech.
Pioneering research and development ensures that we are making products of unrivalled quality and safety because we can apply our historic expertise at every stage of the process.
By combining our state-of-the-art research and development facilities with our team's deep expertise in hyaluronic acid development, we are leading the world in improving existing products and processes. Because we are focuses purely on HA production, we are able to continuously develop new and exciting products for existing and future applications.
Our highly qualified cleanroom team is divided into two areas within the production department. A 'green' zone which is certified to ISO class 5 and 6, and our ‘blue’ zone certified to ISO class 7.
All of our products are bio-fermented, and due to our industry-leading filling and assembly equipment, we ensure all products are manufactured efficiently and at the highest possible safety levels.
BOHUS takes responsibility in sustainability very seriously and actively focuses on efficiencies that can be made in the manufacturing, packaging, design and delivery of our products. We are continuously innovating and finding new ways to increase these efficiencies.
Because of its biocompatibility, hyaluronic acid serves as a filler in the vitreous body of the eye, preventing the retina from collapsing during surgery. It also helps lubricate the eye surface; because of its water-retention and viscosity, it can aid the body’s natural healing. Our ophthalmology hyaluronic acid products are of high viscosity that require no modification after manufacture.
Hyaluronic acid is favoured in many aesthetic procedures as the body is able to accommodate it well. That's because hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body. It's a molecule that binds water to itself, lubricating, cushioning and retaining moisture. Hyaluronic acid transports water between tissues and also helps in the growth of new tissue, aiding contouring and keeping the skin supple.
Hyaluronic acid is found in the synovial fluid and cartilage, providing smooth surfaces for the joints. It supplies nutrients to the cartilage and takes the waste products away. Synovial fluid acts as both a lubricant and a shock absorber. In surgery, hyaluronic acid helps to restore these properties to the synovial fluid and cartilage and reduce inflammation.
Since 1992, BOHUS have constantly refined and developed solutions for the medical application of hyaluronic acid. Our laboratories, at the centre of Swedish MedTech, are where we explore the benefits of hyaluronic acid by enlisting the expertise of our scientists and leading specialists. And because the science can be directly implemented into our on-site manufacturing, we can always ensure the highest standards of quality and safety in our fields of expertise.
