Working Hard On What We Love

We are proudly sporting a Great Places to Work badge because our work is challenging, and oh-so-rewarding. Seeing new products hit the shelves and change peoples’ lives is certainly enough. However, we also have a heck of a lot of fun along the way.

One of the best (officially)

For three years running we were named a “Great Place to Work®” and made the Fortune 100 Best Companies to Work for 2022 list in the small to medium business category. We’re a small but mighty team and we continue to push ourselves to be more than great – we want to be the best at what we do. If you’re considering joining our team as a contributor or as a partner in formulation, you can be sure that we’ve officially earned a place in the rankings of the best. We’re proud of this achievement and will continually work to raise the bar.

Our History

CSI was founded by Barry and Valerie Titlow in 1998. Matt’s been at the helm for 3 incarnations of the business which includes a shift from targeting the mass market to diving head-first into the sports nutrition market, then again as CSI evolved into a greater presence in the wellness and best-self categories with brand new proprietary ingredients.

Have you heard of Carnosyn®? Compound Solutions represented this until 2015. And if you’ve heard of TeaCrine®, Dynamine™, CoreBiome®, Fibriss™, Metabolyte™ or any of the proprietary ingredients listed on our ingredients page, you know Compound Solutions and the reputation we’ve developed.

We’re proud to say that we now represent 14 of the best patented/trademarked ingredients that are paving the way in human wellness. While these accomplishments are great, our wins don’t stop at ingredients.

We’re so proud of our team of tight, passionate professionals serving customers around the globe. We are obsessed with ingredient organoleptics. We have developed a new work-culture of giving back to the environment, consistently, in so many ways. And we’re often the loudest booth at a tradeshow.


Getting social in the field with Team CSI


Compound Solutions established The Farmacy Initiative in 2018. It's here to help future generations learn the power of eating vegetables, because we believe that whole foods are the foundation of maximizing human potential.
