Our botanical extracts

Botanical extracts are, as the name suggests, plant extracts. They are taken from different parts of plants, including the roots, leaves, berries, bark, stems and flowers. Sometimes the plant is used as a whole, while in other cases only a specific part of the plant has desired actives. They are obtained in immersing the plant in a solvent of your choice: glycerin, alcohol or water.

These extracts make it possible to act directly on the skin by providing it with concrete active ingredients. Some extracts are sebum-regulating (regulate sebum production) while others protect the skin from external aggressions (cold, heat, pollution, etc.) or skin aging.

In addition to bringing powerful active ingredients to the compositions of cosmetics, these plant extracts are biodegradable!
