After three years of research alongside the Shiseido European Innovation Center and its community of experts, Ulé proudly announces that Ulé's Pure 3otany™ skincare product is officially patent-pending. The Pure 3otany Blend is clinically proven and comprises botanical formulas for the skin.
"Currently, we are growing three plants that do not grow in Europe as it doesn't make sense to focus on molecules that we can already find locally. We work with botanists and universities to test various genetics and grow exotics," says Lindsay Azpitarte, creator of the cosmetic brand Ulé.
"We are the first cosmetic brand to create its extract from ayurvedic botanicals utilizing vertical farming. This sustainable technology enables us to harvest fresh plants at their peak potency for optimal efficiency. Concentrated at up to 55% in our products, our Pure 3otany comes from a unique extraction method that gets the most out of our fresh, pure, and highly potent botanicals," the team shared.
Ulé boldly chose to ally nature with progressive farming technologies, pushing the boundaries of natural cosmetics. "Don't get us wrong; we also source ingredients locally from organic farms and believe in combining both."
Less than half an hour from Paris, Tower Farms has a 300-square-meter research facility and 750-square-meter production facility that is dedicated to the Ulé project and the continued optimization of protocols. As Lindsay explains, Ulé first looked at fifteen different plants alongside Tower Farms, agronomists, and university partners.
For the future, Ulé continues to advance with vertical farming, looking at ways to lower energy consumption and make this technology a viable option for the cosmetic industry. "Let's build the future together!"
