In the same spirit that our rural forefathers
would have offered the finest fruits from their gardens,
we are today pleased and proud to introduce to you the products
of our herbalist's laboratory.
We have always had a good relationship with the
Earth: today in fact, our raw materials are still freshly pressed
vegetable oils, flower waters and herbs distilled drop by drop,
juices of plants extracted with craftsmanlike patience, essences
received as a gift from generous Mother Nature.
They arrive at L'Erbolario from the four corners
of the world, they impregnate us, our workplaces, and even
the surrounding streets with their perfume. We then pour them liberally
into our bottles, boxes and jars for all who
like us believe in the infinite properties of simple things, and
know that to acquire beautiy through a conscious
use of nature, is an art to be cultivated with care, patience, knowledge
Nowadays it is difficult to practise natural beauty treatments with
face packs from recently chopped fruit,
or with preparations of herbs personally picked. It should also
be remembered that the sophisticated
modern extraction techniques are excellent allies and offer us increasingly
effective and ultra-pure
vegetable extracts, extensin, phytosomes, fruit acids.
We believe therefore that many of you can share
our philosophy which considers as essential an
alliance combining the precious wisdom of the past and the undeniable
discoveries of the present.
A philosophy which combines classic phytotherapy and modern cosmetic
True to local and to family traditions, we have always been facinated
by the infinite virtues of plants.
Our aim is to research their unexplored potential, embracing at
the same time the precious aids of
science and of modern technologies.
All our phyto cosmetics are the fruit of enthusiasm
for herbalism, acted out in almost 20 years of
production and success. They are often recommended, tested, criticised
and improved by the
customers of our herbalist shop in Lodi, which is in fact older
than the production laboratory itself.
This direct contact and feed back from our customers has been invaluable
A top rate technical-scientific team (biologists,
pharmacologists, chemists-cosmetologists, doctors and
chemical engineers) then monitors the quality of L'Erbolario cosmetics,
produced in accordance with
the strictest health regulations and subject to thorough testing.
In order to ascertain the degree of tolerance they are finally tested
through extended clinical trials
at the University of Pavia, one of the oldest and most prestigious
universities in Italy.
Without naturally ever resorting to tests on animals.
