ORGANIC AND BIODYNAMIC
Made with extracts and quality local ingredients from biodynamic organic agriculture, combining care for organic standards with farming techniques that respect the earth, following and supporting its natural processes.
NATURALLY SCENTED AND VARIABLE
The fragrances come from 100% pure fine essential oils or from essences that comply with the AIAB eco-friendly organic cosmetics standards. Since these cosmetics are formulated with plant-based active ingredients, they may vary slightly in colour or fragrance from one production batch to the next, owing specifically to the cycles of nature. This is a guarantee of their natural quality, which sets our products apart, imbuing them with personality, testifying to their artisanal nature. This means that each product is unique and never absolutely identical to the others.
Their innovative formulas contain patented organic active ingredients deriving from organic Tuscan ingredients (Rubiox®, Liquepom®, Uviox®, Oleox®…)
