Berkem launches a new range of botanical extracts and floral waters

Produced using extraction processes with low environmental impact, the botanical extracts from the new Botanykem range are a natural source of active molecules : flavonoids, tannins, vitamins, AHA, saponins, carotenoids. The floral waters extracted by distillation are source of aromatic molecules and will boost formulas by bringing active water. These new ingredients are easy to formulate in any water-based cosmetic formulas and offer natural and essential benefits for face, body and hair.

At the in-cosmetics tradeshow, held in Paris from April 12th to 14th 2016, Berkem unveiled its new botanical extracts and floral waters range: Botanykem. For the French plant extraction expert, the aim was to places the power of the botanical world at the service of beauty through a wide range of exotic and traditional French plants carefully selected for their reputation or ancestral use, and compatible with any water-based cosmetic formulas.

Environmental friendly extraction

The botanical extracts are obtained from an eco-friendly low temperature extraction process with a short kinetic that extracts maximum molecules while maintaining efficiency. Preservative-free and based on a glycerin and water form, they are a natural source of active molecules (flavonoids, tannins, vitamins, AHA, saponins, carotenoids, and so on).

As for floral waters, extracted by distillation and source of aromatic molecules, they will boost formulas by bringing ‘active water’.

On the occasion of the in-cosmetics tradeshow, these ingredients have been showcased through the French Beauty Routine formulation concept. Four formulas were developed. Each one includes two botanical extracts and one floral water: a Toning shower gel, a Soothing serum, a Moisturizing gel cream and a Protective hand cream.

"The variety of these formulas demonstrates our new range is suitable for hygiene and care products both for the body and the face," highlighted Julie Droux, marketing manager, Berkem.
