Our added value

The Fair For Life standard promotes fair trade in agriculture, manufacturing and trade through the implementation of good economic, social, and environmental practices. This certification is based on 3 commitments: respect for human rights and fair working conditions, respect for the ecosystem, promotion of biodiversity, and sustainable agriculture practices, and respect and betterment of local impact.

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.

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.

Soothing for the body, energising.

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.
