Customers often ask us how plants are found in our products. It is true that this question arises: how can plants compose a cream?
At Passion Herbale, we work with nature. We respect its natural cycles since we harvest the different parts of the plants when they are ready to be picked. Depending on the time of year, one can harvest either flowers, flower heads, leaves, seeds or roots, each of these parts having different therapeutic effects. Some pick in the spring, others in the summer or fall, or even after the first freezes on the ground. The most important thing is to know what you harvest, and choose the freshest plants possible for maximum therapeutic benefits. Hence the importance of having the skills to know what, when and how to harvest. And in Passion herbale, that's what we have: knowledge and experience.
So to make a cream, it is to take the parts of the harvested plants to prepare an oily macerate. The plants are incorporated in the desired oil, or apple cider vinegar, for a period of 3 months. For this process, it is important to choose the best organic cold-pressed oils, or a premium organic apple cider vinegar made in Quebec. During this maceration, the active ingredients of the plants are transferred to oil or vinegar. A rigorous technique is respected during this stage, which allows us to preserve all the medicinal virtues of plants, oils and vinegars.
It is when we filter these macerates that it becomes possible to integrate them into our products. Our cosmetics are therefore composed of these macerates and other ingredients 100% natural and healthy for your body. This rather laborious process sets us apart, in addition to bringing a host of beneficial nutrients to your skin!
This method requires patience, know-how and access to high quality medicinal plants. That's why there are not many natural cosmetic companies that make their products using this ancestral method, let alone multinational companies!
But what is even more unfortunate, and I'm sorry to tell you, is that these multinationals too often choose to manufacture their products on the basis of profitability rather than health. Most even use ingredients that are anything but natural. According to scientific research, they are even harmful and toxic to our environment and our health but they cost almost nothing to compare organic natural ingredients ...
You have the option to choose what you apply on your skin. And know that everything you put there is absorbed by your body ...
At Passion Herbale, our products are always fresh to preserve all the therapeutic virtues of plants. All this, we do it for your health and your skin!
