During his university studies, he also discovered the professional practice of pharmacists at the Hospito-University Montpellier Center (Hepato-gastroenterology Department) and the UDTT (the Addiction Treatment Unit). At the end of his studies at the Faculty of Pharmacy of Montpellier, he worked for one year for a temporary agency specialized in the medical professions.

With his various experiences in the pharmaceutical industry, in 2008 he decided to take over the Mailloles pharmacy on Avenue Victor Dalbiez in Perpignan, in association with his sister Delphine, also a doctor in pharmacy.
Soon enough, he decided to specialize his pharmacy in natural alternative therapies, referencing many brands of herbal medicine, homeopathy and aromatherapy French, pledge of quality and naturalness.
In 2010, in collaboration with the IT development agency Mandinga (later to become the Emagma agency), he first created the pharmacy information website (www.pharmaciedemailloles.com), which is renowned in the region of Perpignan for its night care service and its laboratory for magistral preparations.

Its goal is to offer online sales a wide range of food supplements, medical devices and organic cosmetics to meet the growing demand for natural care (care for natural health).
In 2013, the French government authorized the online sale of non-prescription drugs. Arnaud Comaills then files an application for approval for this activity, which is accepted in 2014. This authorization allows him to sell online mainly herbal medicines, oligotherapy and homeopathy until then, reserved for delivery only to counter of physical pharmacies.
E-commerce is becoming increasingly important in the life of the company. In 2015, the leaders of the Mailloles pharmacy undertake the transfer to a much larger room on the same avenue of Perpignan.
