Our history

Laboratoire ODOST is a family business founded nearly 20 years ago.
Following the meeting of Mr. Jean-Jacques Lascombes, a pharmacist, and a dental surgeon from Gers, who introduced him to the virtues of the Thermal Spring water of Castéra-Verduzan, Laboratoire ODOST was created.
He then decided to put at the disposal of all, this Water with exceptional virtues and recognized for its benefits for the mouth and mucous membranes. The BUCCOTHERM® range was created by combining the buccal and the thermal.
Today, his son, Roland, is leading this growing company.
