All Organic Treasures – Diversity of Oils
Our family company All Organic Treasures is devoted to the wealth of plant oils. We not only sell oils, but produce them and accompany them from the cultivation of the plants up to the delivery to our customers. We supply raw materials with the best quality for natural and organic cosmetics. We offer manufacturers of natural and organic cosmetics a broad spectrum of basic and active ingredient-oils. Our oils are certified as organic and by COSMOS in compliance with the guidelines for certified organic cosmetics.
Our oil assortment includes more than 100 different organic plant oils, from organically grown apricot kernel oil to lemon kernel oil. We deliver in small containers (from 4,5 kg), in barrels and cubitainers.
Since May 2017, we offer a worldwide novelty, a natural anti-oxidant. StoppOx® is an anti-oxidant for cosmetic formulas and fragrances. The major benefit for manufacturers and consumers is the extended expiration date. Increased oxidative stability of perfumes, oils and active ingredients leads to an extended expiration date and a safer product. In particular, the development of irritants such as peroxides and fragrance allergens from oxidized aromatic substances is significantly reduced.
Another novelty is mallow and lavender macerate, produced in-house by oil extraction. Due to the oil extraction, the macerates contain no water and therefore are resistant against microorganism. The extract from the fresh plants has significantly more active substances than extracts from dried plants.
The family enterprise Botanica GmbH, based in Sins, Switzerland, has been producing individual plant extracts for the cosmetics industry since 1998. With its high-quality products and the environmental awareness company philosophy, Botanica offers the consumer insights into nature. The sustainability of our work is always important to us. In all respects we raise the question of how we can be more ecological, fair and considerate. The basis of our sustainable approach is our sustainability certification CSE (Certified Sustainable Economics). The certification in compliance with ISO-9001 is the foundation for quality assurance from raw material procurement up to the delivery of customer-specific extracts. Botanica is certified in compliance with the Swiss organic regulation (recognized by the EU) and offers a broad spectrum of high-quality organic plant extracts from controlled organic cultivation for natural and organic cosmetics.

In cooperation with our representatives in other countries we have established a world-wide distribution network. www.dr-straetmans.de

Following the 5th anniversary of the NaturkosmetikCamp 2018 in Brandenburg, Germany, and a sabbatical in 2019, 130 organic cosmetics enthusiasts from German-speaking countries will meet once again from June 19-21, 2020, to discuss current issues of the organic cosmetics industry. The goal is to discuss new concepts in a casual and open environment and to encourage new ideas. Only together the awareness for organic cosmetics can be strengthened and market shares increased – in the spirit of holistic sustainability: From farming to fair trade to value-based communication. Only those who actively participate can alter the future. Therefore, the NaturkosmetikCamp promotes commitment. The participants determine the topics themselves and decide on-site which issues are included on the agenda. This promotes diversity and quality, but also discussions at eye level among the participants from retail, manufacturing, hotels, beauty salons, consulting, brands, etc. We will publish where the next workshop of ideas will be held at the latest in spring 2019.
