SCIENCE X NATURE
Unique nature produces unique ingredients. Fingredients Arctic ingredients for functional foods, food supplements, sports nutrition,
cosmetics & dermatological products are
100% natural and plant-based, solvent-free, non-GMO, and organic or wild-sourced. Our mission is more sustainable health, globally.
Sustainability is the overreaching principle in all operations. Finland has the Worlds largest Organic-certified forest area of 13 million hectares, nearly 99 % of all the forests of Lapland of Finland being organic-certified. Raw material is mainly harvested wild from Lapland according to principles of fair trade, ISSC-standards for Sustainable Collection of Medical and Aromatic Plants (MAP), and GACP by WHO, without harming the biodiversity of compromising the product quality. Arctic wild plants grow in untouched areas, far from pollution. They must generate powerful protection in order to survive the freezing temperatures, and during the Arctic summer the plants are exposed to almost 24 hour of sunlight. Extreme environment packs these plants with antioxidants and polyphenols such as flavonoids, and other valuable chemical compounds beneficial for human health. Studies have shown that Northern plants contain higher amounts of polyphenols and other antioxidants compared to the same plant species growing in Southern regions. Products are 100 % natural, with no added chemicals, colorants, or preservatives, and only natural extraction methods are used.
Ingredients are sourced from Lapland of
Finland. 99% of the Arctic forests in Lapland are organic-certified, and
Finland in total holds the Worlds largest area of organic certified forests.
Most of the ingredients are wild-sourced, and processed carefully by using only natural solvents and optimal temperatures.
