Bontoux has been a source of aromatic natural ingredients for over 120 years. From botanics to the link that connects the earth with people, from olfactory memory to our industrial expertise that never ceases to be reinvented and perfected, we continue to explore, probe and reveal the very essence of nature.
We extract our natural raw materials from the land around our production sites, keen to form direct and personalised relationships with producers from all over the world to offer you the very best natural products.
Equipped with innovative tools, our laboratory masters all the techniques on a laboratory scale before they are replicated in all our production workshops.
