Sustainable preservation of botanical heritage and biodiversity, both sources of benefits – known or yet to be discovered – for everyone's health and beauty
The history of our company is intimately linked to the world of plants. For our company, preserving biodiversity is a response to three challenges: maintaining biological diversity, which is a potential source of active ingredients in the fields of health and beauty; protecting and safeguarding nature, which is essential for humanity’s equilibrium; and respecting nature, which is a source of beauty and poetry. We have a profound respect for plants, their richness and fragility, and translate this into tangible action.
