OXFORD OF RUSSIA
The city where our manufacturing partners Art Life create our products and where polyprenols are produced out of coniferous branches is called Tomsk. It is located in Siberia, one of the coldest places on Earth, where temperatures in winter can fall as low as minus 58ºF.
City of Tomsk was founded in the year of 1640 as a military fortress. But at the end of 19th century Tomsk started to become one of the major scientific, educational and enlightening centers of Siberia with the first university opening here as early as 1888.
Today Tomsk is a large educational, research, and innovation center of Siberia. It is a home to 9 universities, 15 institutes for scientific research, 6 business incubators, a technology development special economic zone, as well as more than 25,000 organizations and companies.
Currently, Tomsk is ranked fourth in Russia for the number of professors possessing a doctoral degree, and third (after Moscow and St. Petersburg) with the number of students per 10,000 inhabitants, and in the enrollment of youth in higher education programs.
