History & philosophy

 

"Maremma Officinalis was born in Maremma, in the heart of Tuscany in 2019, from the rustle of oak and acacia leaves, from the scents of Lavender, Sage and Rosemary, from the colors of Chamomile and Helichrysum ... in a nutshell it comes from an essence."

 

In Maremma, time stands still, nature is wild and uncontaminated and there, among the scents of medicinal plants and the colors of the wild herbs of which it is naturally rich, our natural cosmetic line is born.

The line is handcrafted and tells of the love for our land through the use of precious cold-pressed vegetable oils and pure hydrolates. The officinal plants and native wild herbs that we use are harvested by hand and in small quantities in Maremma, in full respect of their balsamic period, when the plants have the highest concentration of active ingredients. The extraction takes place immediately after harvesting through a maceration process that lasts 60 days in glycerin or vegetable oil, thus allowing them to maintain their precious properties unaltered.

We shorten the distances

In our farm we cultivate 1000 olive trees with organic farming method, the oil we obtain is a precious ally for health and beauty, rich in polyphenols, phytosterols, chlorophylls, Vitamin E and Essential Fatty Acids, properties that remain unchanged thanks to the cold pressing carried out in an ancient local oil mill. We believe that respect for the environment and effectiveness can be enclosed in a single product, without compromising, protecting and enhancing the world that hosts us; Thus, we decided to create a sustainable, transparent and quality local network with other farms, which, like us, produce vegetable oils, hydrolates and extracts, using organic farming methods: custodians of local knowledge and traditions. Our local network is the very identity of the line, an important project of sharing and a sense of belonging. we formulate and produce cosmetics based on raw materials of completely vegetable origin, local and from organic farming, cruelty free, vegan and packaged in 100% recyclable and reusable recyclable packaging produced in Italy using energy from renewable sources. A return to the Essential, to a natural care of the body which is then reflected on the mind and vice versa, giving rise to products that, although formulated with 100% vegetable active ingredients, are transparent, this is what we expect first of all from a cosmetics that is defined as natural and this is what we try to study and create, with passion, care and awareness.
