Meet the founders

"BOTANISTS" is a tribute to the scientists who accompanied the great maritime expeditions to discover the richness of a plant world then unknown. Specialists in plant biology, botanists studied plants, flowers, fruits and trees in their natural environment and in the laboratory.
They have thus made it possible to discover real treasures that the wild nature of these unknown lands had to offer.

Our constant search for natural active ingredients extracted from plants took us to the far lands of New Zealand in 2008. We discovered an exceptional honey from Leptospermum Scoparium, a key native plant of the local pharmacopoeia whose extremely wide use and many health benefits have revolutionized our vision of natural well-being and beauty: Mānuka honey.

Based on an expertise developed over the last fifteen years and fed by thousands of users feedbacks, we have with BOTANISTS' the ambition to offer a strong brand, specifically dedicated to holistic beauty, and to make Mānuka honey an essential part of the daily beauty and wellness routine.

We put in your hands an ultra-efficient product, unprocessed and manufactured in an environment free of pesticides and pollution. Our role is to be that bond of trust between nature, science and you while minimizing our impact on the environment.

A role that obliges us and for which we care deeply"

Based on 15 years of expertise, BOTANISTS' is the specialist in raw and active Mānuka honey from New Zealand. Made from the nectar of the Mānuka plant, Leptospermum scoparium, which grows only in the wild, exclusively on the virgin lands of New Zealand and only a few weeks a year during the austral spring, Mānuka has been used in traditional medicine for centuries.

The honey that is extracted from it has exceptional properties proven by a plethoric scientific bibliography. Its healing, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties are amazing, its formidable effectiveness on acne problems and its benefits on the beauty and health of the skin and the well-being of the body recognized throughout the world.

Our experience and our close relationships with beekeepers in New Zealand allow us to offer you the best raw and active Mānuka honey available without any other intermediary, directly from the hive to you. We select authentic, unprocessed, cold-creamed Mānuka honeys whose active compound, methylglyoxal, has been measured in the laboratory.

Pioneers and enthusiasts, we wish to share with the same admiration the infinite uses of Mānuka honey for the care of the skin and the well-being of the body.
