Pure ingredients with natural qualities that care for your lips every day.
The power of tinctorial plants
Certain plants and fruit contain pigments or molecules in their flowers, leaves, berries, bark or roots that can be used as dyes: these are tinctorial plants.
Through a process of grinding, extracting and infusing we obtain both their natural dyeing properties and their incredible biological properties.
Our lipsticks therefore offer the best of nature, in the purest form possible.
