Throughout the world, certain cultures have always lived in a symbiotic collaboration with nature. Our botanical collections honor these relationships and offer a series of ingredient portfolios. Each collection spotlights a geographical area or specific marketing theme thus answering all creative expectations for building innovative product concepts inspired by Nature.
From the tropical forests of Ivory Coast to the Cederberg Mountains in South Africa, nature expresses itself fully and with tremendous biodiversity. The cradle of humanity, the African continent is home to 8 of the world’s 34 biodiversity hotspots. Whether native to Africa or simply acclimated, botanicals grow on this continent with remarkable vigor. Their rich and varied phytochemical profiles make them choice raw materials for the design of high potency extracts. The “Magic of Africa” collection has been created from a selection of botanicals that address these three main principles:
• The efficacy of their traditional or modern use has been documented,
• They can be sustainably and responsibly cultivated in partnership with small producers,
• They are part of a process to preserve biodiversity and traditional knowledge.
