Our added value

RESPECTING PEOPLE

Our partnerships in the Piedmont region began 40 years ago with a tarragon producer. Gradually, the producer moved towards other plants such as roman chamomile and peppermint. With time, the partnership has expanded to include other families. Our partnership is framed by multi-year contracts defining the volumes, and the quality of the essential oil, as well as a fair price policy (guaranteed floor price defined on the basis of production costs, protection of producers in case of crisis). Our agreements include support for producers in the development of their activity, from cultivation of the fields to distillation. We encourage the sharing of knowledge and the transmission of know-how through the organization of inter-producer meetings.

PRESERVING NATURE

Respect and preservation of the environment are at the center of our partners’ agricultural practices. There is no use of herbicides or pesticides, agronomic tests are carried out to eliminate fertilizers, and the biomass from the distillations is reused to enrich the soil. The factory is powered by solar panels and water waste is reduced (hot water recovered from the condenser used in the tank).

ENSURING TRACEABILITY

The supply chain is fully traceable, and the raw material to the cultivation plots.

 

Fresh, rising, our Italian Peppermint is an ingredient of choice in musk colognes and orientals. Its mentholated facet creates an intense freshness effect specific to this essential oil.

Peppermint leaves are covered with small secretory hairs containing the odoriferous principles. They give off a powerful minty fragrance when crumpled. The peppermint is a hybrid resulting from the crossing between the aquatic mint or Mentha aquatica and the frizzy mint or Mentha spicata. Mints have a great power of hybridization. It is enough to plant two different mint plants side by side to see appearing a new intermediate form. Sterile, it multiplies by spreading out by underground stems. Harvest happens in August when at least 50% of the flowers are wilted. The flowering tops are cut and then steam distilled.
