Driven by the belief that breakthrough science and organic skincare go hand in hand, Bottega Organica formulas are meticulously crafted to nurture the skin and prolong youthfulness without the use of preservatives, emulsifiers, artificial fragrances, colors or synthetics of any kind. It all began while Dr. Andrea Alimonti, one of Bottega Organica’s founders and a world-renowned geneticist, was studying a novel cure for cancer.
Dr. Alimonti developed a screening method to detect the effect of plant extracts on aging and skin senescence. After screening thousands of different combinations, he was able to identify a handful of Natural Inhibitors of Senescence (NIS) - natural substances with the potential of slowing the aging of human cells. Prawn Sage (pictured at right) is one of the key ingredients in Bottega Organica formulas that has been shown to slow cellular senescence. Bottega Organica combines these NIS with powerful anti-aging medicinal plants and active natural carriers such as pure organic extra-virgin olive oil, organic botanical serums and distilled spring water.
Bottega Organica creates true botanical formulas that are scientifically proven to maintain skin youth, yet are also 100% pure and natural. All ingredients are harvested and processed naturally on farms in Italy and upstate NY.
