A new botanical extract collection rooted in Brazilian biodiversity
Givaudan Active Beauty unveils RitualEssenz Brazil, a new collection stemming from Brazil natural treasures, further promoting clean and natural beauty products.
The Brazilian forest is one of the biggest natural resources in the world. Its diversity of plant species is the largest on Earth with more than 75.000 types of trees and 150.000 species of higher plants in a square kilometre.
Called "lungs of the world", the amazon forest needs to be preserved. In a responsible and ethical approach following our “A Sense of Tomorrow” sustainability strategy, we have selected extracts with a sustainable supply from biodiversity, promoting science and innovation, while adding value to communities.
We offer integrated solutions for the supply of natural ingredients on an industrial scale with traceability and sustainability. At the same time, we promote sustainable agriculture and forest management through partners hips, contributing to the generation and diversification of income in rural and forest areas.
We also promote benefit sharing to support communities and families involved in the sustainable supply of raw materials from biodiversity.
