Science and conscience
The science of the study of plants invariably brings to mind nostalgic images of large, scholarly pictures of plants with Latin names, wonderful expertly drawn flowers and patiently coloured watercolours, the compendia and illustrations of Pierre-Joseph Redouté.
A parent to aromatherapy and phytotherapy, botany evokes both Theophrastus and Linné’s binomial nomenclature. But it also reminds us that plants generate oxygen, are food and allow other forms of life to exist. This science is enriched by the most recent discoveries, whether this involves research into chemotypes or new innovative procedures for extracting essential oils.
It is a living science where knowledge of the plant world helps us understand ever more precisely past and future environmental changes. It represents a universal conscience that encourages us to take action.
Botany is an old yet modern word. It teaches us humility and inspires the passion that we use to formulate our products.

A not quite obvious yet obvious fact: a pure essential oil by its very essence is not oily…
Since the dawn of time, the benefits of essential oils have been known by every civilisation. In India they are mentioned in the holy Vedas books. They were understood in China too and in Egypt their use has been recorded since the reign of Amenhotep I. The Egyptians had already mastered the processes of maceration, distillation and extraction through enfleurage. These powerful elixirs, extracts of nard, myrrh and sandalwood, slowly took up their unique place where original scientific ideas and holy, magical traditions meet.
Rare, precious, sometimes from faraway climes or more common origins but always exceptional, these essential oils are the very heart of Sentéales’ products. Made using environmentally-friendly extraction processes, they are blended and combined with other active plant ingredients, their effectiveness distilled and refined to offer beauty for every skin type.
