Opening new horizons for natural cosmetics with NaDES technology


Gattefossé is committed to explore the very best of nature with a continuous focus on sustainably driven product development.

Since 2012, our scientists have been working on the design of a new generation of 100% natural solvents to create highly efficient active ingredients: they are called Natural Deep Eutectic solvents or NaDES.

These green solvents are directly inspired by botanicals and the way in which metabolites are solubilized inside the plant using eutectic combinations of simple chemicals.

Working with researchers from Leiden University, Gattefossé has developed and patented several natural eutectic solvents and deeply studied their advantages.

Thanks to a perfect affinity with the plant material, unique phytochemical compositions have been uncovered and gave birth to high performance active ingredients.

Natural, non-toxic, environment friendly, these solvents are totally aligned with Gattefossé’s CSR policy without any compromise on efficacy.
