Watercress Research is a phytochemicals-based company which was spun out from the University of Exeter in 2019.
We are developing urease inhibitory products from the watercress plant (Nasturtium officinale) for use in continence care, cosmetics, food and drink.

We are currently creating a range of our own brand products and open to discussions on potential contracts and collaborations. Please do get in touch if you want to chat!
