We are guided by our true purpose – to use our ethnobotanical knowledge, science, and market insights to create innovative plant-based solutions that promote sustainable, healthy living worldwide.
Deeply rooted on the island of Gran Canaria and having a history of working with unexplored botanicals from stunning locations, we have a profound respect for sustainability and care just as much about how we work as what we produce.
We are on a journey to becoming a Certified B Corporation, transitioning towards a transparent purpose-driven business, being conscious about how our products contribute to sustainable development and how our operations are conceived and managed for a positive impact. We commit ourselves to make our efforts actionable and issuing an annual sustainability report.
We are making meaningful changes with and for our stakeholders, fostering partnerships based on transparency, authenticity and trust. This also means investing in our people, collaborators, research capabilities and eco-friendly technology, to keep bringing innovative plant-based solutions to the market in a responsible way.
We continously learn and develop our knowledge so we can offer expert understanding of the behaviour and use of our extracts. We continue to invest in our in-house research and development capabilities as well as our laboratory facilities and sophisticated pilot plant for rapid prototyping.
