Italian government have listed ORTUS Medicinal plant cultivation as the country’s protected area, where illegal collection is strictly prohibited.
Planting and production process underwent strict organic certification recognized by Europe and America’s agricultural practices, which proves the crop are not only pollution-free but also helps preserve the earth.
Respect the environment for plantation is the most basic requirement of “Organic” cultivation. Besides soil and water being the 2 most important elements, different crops each require different nutrients and trace elements. Pure spring water, rich in minerals, micro-organisms are used to irrigate organic plantation. High quality organic soil must be completely free from pesticides and chemicals for five years.
Extraction of Active Ingredients
Every medicinal herbs contains different active ingredients, having their own uniqueness, characteristics usage. Generally, active in- gredients are gathered in certain parts of a plant, such as leaves, branches, flower buds, fruits, roots, stems, etc.
Plant essence (extracts) after disintegration, are divided into 3 cate- gories: liquid, wet and dry materials. As these plant extracts contain high quality of active ingredients, large amount of them are used by beauty & pharmaceutical industry for optimum results.
Plant Cells & Human Cells
The biochemistry structure of the human skin and botanical products are similar. The absorption of botanical plant extracts and natural ingredients forms the treasury of the human skin structure.

About Your Skin
Do you know? SKIN is the largest organ of the human body. Besides covering the whole of our body, skin also plays an important role providing protection to the organs. The skin structure consist 3-layers is simple yet complex; Epidermis, Dermis, Subcutaneous Tissue. With layers of fats, the subcutaneous tissue protects the upper layer cells. Dermis, being the central layer contains collagen-protein, microtubules, nerves, follicles, sweat and sebaceous glands. The upper most layer, Epidermis, plays the role of cells renewal and metabolism. Different individual faces skin problems of their own as the lifestyle between each individual varies
Dark eye circles, saggy eye bags are often caused by accumulation of excretion due to fatigue eyes.

Sunscreen with high degree of chemical contains may combat against sun rays but also increases sensitivity degree of skin. With high probability of severe sunburns and post-pigmentation problems even after erythema subside.
Causes of Sensitivity
Factors leading to skin sensitivity include climate changes, animal hair, pollen, stress, emotional instability, wrong choice of skin care products, excessive electro-induction (RF), skin dermasion and dry skin, etc. As skin loses large amount of water, natural fatty acids reduces; skin feels hot, red-swollen and chapped, tight, flaky and rough to touch.
Skin's epidermal layer provides protection for our body, resistance to unbalanced pH and hydro-loss. Combat against external aggression, friction, environmental compression. While the elasticity and density of epidermal cuticles relies on protein and nutrients supply, therefore, it is a daily essential to apply moisturizers and nourishing creams to fortifies our skin from dryness and ageing.
