Read more + Read more -Our Copaiba oil is derived from a tree, the Copaia tree, which is grown sustainably in the Amazon, and which allows the Indians and their families to obtain a guaranteed fair income, while protecting their ecological environment from deforestation. This tree can live for over 400 years. It is a major remedy in the Amazonian tradition. The resins of the trees are extracted by a sustainable process that avoids damaging the plant and guarantees the continuity of the production.
Our phytosqualane comes from a production certified by the United Nations Global Compact, a voluntary international movement of companies committed to sustainable development.
Read more + Read more -It is based on ten principles such as human rights, the environment, labor rights and the fight against corruption. This guarantees a commitment to adopt ethical and sustainable development policies and strategies. Our phytosqualane is 100% vegetable, organically grown olives from the heart of the olive groves in Andalusia (Spain). During our production process in Spain, all the products not used for production are recovered for the manufacture of biodiesel. This is called "upcycling". The olive tree can grow in difficult climatic conditions. Olive trees use a small amount of land and water resources. The majority of the world's olive groves, about 70%, operate without irrigation, relying solely on rainwater. It is a tree with a high capacity to absorb and store carbon dioxide. This is called the carbon sink effect: olive trees capture greenhouse gases from the atmosphere. The CO2 storage capacity and retention time of olive trees is greater than the carbon footprint of producing one liter of virgin olive oil. Thus, an olive grove is a lever to reduce our environmental impact. Olive trees help to slow down erosion and desertification. They are mainly cultivated in arid areas and are an ally for the populations that cultivate them, as well as for biodiversity. The olive tree: a sustainable and renewable resource
Our jojoba oil provides an income for people living in inhospitable areas with few employment opportunities.
