Innovation and creativity
Our innovative R+D lab
We add active dry extracts that we obtain from herbs and beekeeping products to naturally fortify the beneficial properties of our products; this innovative method allows us to turn our products into superfoods.
Plant residues from extraction are returned to the field as natural, organic fertilizer.
We enhance nature’s performance: By implementing genomic protocols, we secure genetic material from plant populations with the best properties. This way, we know that we grow the best cultivars and obtain highest-quality products. Our protocols also allow us at any moment to verify that producers are supplying us with herbs only from selected batches.
Our active dry extracts are obtained through the process of extracting medicinal herbs or beekeeping products like propolis, with a selected solvent (in our case water) under specific conditions. The extracts are essentially a set of different bioactive substances, such as polyphenols, flavonoids in much higher concentrations compared to their respective source.
During the extraction process, herbs & propolis encounter the solvent, water in our case, and at given temperature and pressure conditions, the components are extracted or otherwise “transferred”. The resulting extracts can be in liquid form (such as tinctures) or in dry form (powders) and the use of encapsulation carriers (e.g. inulin) which ensure stability of the bioactive components of the extract.
Symbeeosis active dry extracts
come from high quality 100% organic raw medicinal plants & honey products
They are extracts titrated in their active ingredients
Extraction is performed using soluble environmentally friendly (mainly water)
It is in dry form which allows their better integration in our products in order to enhance their effectiveness
We use encapsulation techniques that ensure protection, stability and better transport of their components
Research projects and Educational programs
Through an international network of partnerships with top academic institutions, we seek the next big scientific ideas that will change nutrition and sustainability.
We have strategic partnerships with universities and research institutions around the world.
Nature is a colorful place: bees love colour and we also do in our awarded packaging!
The colours of nature were a great source of inspiration in the design of our packaging – we wanted the exterior to reflect the natural goodness inside. But our packaging design is also informed by sustainability principles – we got creative in our use of packaging materials in service of our goal for zero waste.
We value creativity, new ideas and new ways of thinking. We draw most of our inspiration from nature, with its amazing richness of colour and texture, unexpected partnerships and amazing functions, and the enviable economy in its use of resources.
We have been recently awarded for our packaging
Plastic Free certification ensures that the packaging does not contain any plastic, while the Metal Recycles ForeverTM mark denotes that it is infinitely recyclable without loss of quality. Perpetual recycling reduces energy consumption and minimizes waste volume.
Biodegradable pyramids for teas & herbs
Made of PLA (Polylactic acid) – 100% natural fibres
produced from corn starch. The pyramids are sealed using
ultrasonic technology, with absolutely no glue. PLA is a
100% environmentally friendly material that decomposes
fully in soil or water without releasing any pollutants (fully
biodegradable within one year, when buried in soil); it is
also suitable for domestic composting. It has natural
properties and processing capabilities similar to existing
synthetic textiles, does not contain any petroleum or
petroleum products, and has a smooth and silky exterior
Glass honey jars
A jar made of honey that permits easy label removal. It can
be reused as a container to store herbs, seeds, or dried
nuts, or as a pencil holder – and of course it can be
recycled in the appropriate bin.
Paper honey carton
Paper with FSC certification that indicates wood
harvested from forests that are responsibly managed,
controlled sources, recycled materials, or a combination
of the above. It can be used as a storage box, and of
course it can be recycled in the appropriate bin.
