Alpha-bisabolol is a natural compound. This asset presents a delicate floral note. It is widely used in cosmetics, especially for its ability to increase the effectiveness of other active ingredients or for its soothing properties. The natural version of the product has many advantages over the synthetic version: non-allergen *, more effective 20 to 30%, and therefore more economical. A natural organic alternative in line with consumer expectations.

Our NEW product, organic alpha-bisabolol, is extracted from the candeia oil and strictly conform with Brazilian forest protection regulation. The quality is certified COSMOS-Standart (100% PPAI organic).

We are able to also provide conventional quality.

*does not process any of the 26 substances considered as allergens by the University of Campinas, Brazil

New industrial site, new products, new employees ... and logo makeover.
Transparency is in the DNA of Elixens, an independent and family-owned firm, so we are giving you the details of our transformation.

This new visual identity illustrates our main growth path: natural, organic, and fair-trade products.

It highlights the beauty and quality of our aromatic plants thanks to a coherent, current and easily ajustable corporate identity.  

Contraction of "elixir of the senses", at the crossroads of agricultural and industrial worlds (symbolized by the central X), Elixens' mission is to integrate their constraints and make you benefit from our know-how in the work of aromatic raw materials.

You will notice that our new logo appear gradually on our promotional materials to avoid any waste.

Our new visual identity does not change our main goal which remains: to ensure high-quality service manufacturing and supplying sustainable fair-trade aromatic raw materials.

The aromatic plants conference at the international trade fair Tech & Bio attracted a lot of visitors on September 19th, 2019.

"Our aromatic plants are adapted to not or poorly irrigated culture. They are an answer to the water-saving problems and open up possibilities for farmers in dry areas "stressed out André Hyvrier, agricultural engineer of Elixens. "Every year, we notice changes due to global warming: harvest dates are a week ahead and some cold-sensitive species can spend the winter without problems" he explained.

Bringing together the industrial and technical development resources, Elixens France is getting closer to the fields, at the heart of our organic and fair-trade partnership in Provence-Dauphiné.

Drôme’s team joined a new industrial building of 7 170 sq yd located on 7,4 ac of land.

A total investment of nearly €3M million enabled the acquisition of the building and its development. The modernization and development of industrial tools are carried out by local companies until the end of 2019.

Our teams are ensuring, as always, high-quality customer service during the whole process. They are also looking forward to offering you new products, especially on the natural, organic and fair-trade sides.  

The mallow Malva sylvestris L. is a perennial plant, native to Europe. We currently grow mallow in the South of France (Drôme). Maryline’s field is less than 40 km (25 miles) from our production site and our distillery.

We produce 5% certified organic floral water (22,5% PPAI organic). This pretty purple flower with soothing, emollient properties and a faint floral note will be perfect for your softness formulas. The plant can also be dried for herbal teas and used for respiratory properties.

The harvest is from June to September. We highly recommend that you make your reservations before January for large volumes of floral waters or dried plants. We can then organize the plantations and supply you with the product in 2020.
