As a research-led healthcare company, we strive to develop solutions and medicines where there is high unmet need.

Our Technology: Harnessing the Power of Fatty Acids

Fatty acids have strong antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral activity. Their solubility in water poses a challenge to using them in a clinical setting. We have developed a powerful, next-generation, and safe solution to this; by using amino acids, part of everyday foods, we have figured out a way to get the fatty acids to solubilize in water. Unlock the power of fatty acids. We are leveraging this patented platform to let the fatty acids shine. This platform opens the door to a multitude of applications in healthcare, agriculture, and more…

For over 10 years we have been refining and testing several formulations with more than 10 different fatty acids. Each have their own unique applications. The advantages of using fatty acids as therapeutics include:


High levels of potency in eradication infectious organisms.

Excellent safety

Water solubility means nasty solvents aren't required. And since fatty acids naturally occur in our diet, they are well tolerated. Can be applied topically.

Broad spectrum

Activity against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, fungi and viruses.

Combats resistance

No evidence of resistance development during standardized testing (undecylenic acid formulation).

Long lasting

Our formulation seems to remain active, confering ongoing protection against infections.

Environmentally Friendly

No harmful chemicals, water-based, sustainable naturally occurring active ingredients.

Therapeutic applications

At Wintermute Biomedical, we are performing leading-edge research and development into the discovery of next-generation therapeutics and consumer products to prevent and combat infectious diseases. We are actively researching, developing and testing:

Our lead therapy, GS-1, for topical treatment against the virus that causes Shingles.

GS-13 for the bacteria that causes Impetigo.

Buruli ulcers.

Broader Horizons

There is great potential to carry this technology into many other industries. To make sure other industries can benefit from our technology, we created Ten Carbon Chemistry, a spin-off company working to get this technology into agriculture and environmental industries.
