If the Company was born from an encounter with essential oils, if we decided to become experts in aromatherapy and phytotherapy and we chose to only sell ORGANIC products (and this, as much as possible), it is good for a reason: we are nature lovers. And who says nature lover necessarily implies particular attention to the environment.

The purpose of our products and our advice: to provoke encounters

The ecological crisis that we are all going through has its roots in a way of life that has distanced us from nature. It's as simple as that, we don't love nature enough, because we no longer have enough contact with it. Loving presupposes proximity, meeting, the concrete experience of the relationship. And this is where the primary purpose of Compagnie des Sens’ products and advice lies: provoke encounter and wonder, between man and the fabulous fruits of biodiversity. Sensory, intellectual and physiological encounters, leading to a sense of wonder at the beauty of nature. And this wonder is no longer simply theoretical, but deeply rooted in the person who experiences the effectiveness of an essential oil of Wintergreen, the beauty of a Spirulina powder, the taste of an infusion of Fragrant Verbena, the smell of Plum vegetable oil, etc. In a way we are one Meetic of nature.

We are convinced that wonder (and the visceral attachment it provokes) will be a much more effective vector of cultural change than fear, however legitimate it may be. Each of our products and each of our advice are activists for this peaceful and individual revolution that we so need.

Products to give value to nature

In many parts of the world, the only way to protect nature is to ensure that it is taken care of... be profitable. This is particularly the case in regions of the globe where the State does not have the means (or the desire) to ensure the defense of the environment.

An example ? In a very concrete way, promoting Ravintsara essential oil to Western consumers automatically gives it an economic value in Madagascar, pushing the farmer to protect the ecosystem which brings him a substantial salary... rather than burn the whole hill to plant cassava.

Beyond this trivial example, highlighting a natural extract means giving an immediate financial interest to farmers, to take care of their ecosystem, which has suddenly become a source of income. Thus, by highlighting the incredible assets of plants and the natural extracts they produce, we help to offer them the best defense against destruction by man: a high market value.

Taking care of nature, from the plant to the end customer

Through our activity, we are also keen to transmit a qualitative tension to the entire value chain, so that each actor is encouraged to respect and take care of the plant, its ecosystem and its extract. We transmit this requirement through 4 major founding principles of the Compagnie des Sens:

  •  Never pesticides in our products, and this since the beginning. The ORGANIC label allows us to ensure that the cultivation of our products has never caused the destruction of ecosystems through the use of these “phytosanitary” products. Choosing to sell an organic product also means contributing to “the protection of the environment and the climate, preserving the long-term fertility of the soil, contributing to achieving a high level of biodiversity, making a notable contribution to an environment non-toxic” *.... Even if it is only a first step. 

* these are just some of the objectives that you can find in the text of Regulation EC -2018-848 on organic production and labeling (page 22)
