Sarmance was born on the banks of the longest river in France, obtaining its key active ingredients from grape vines.In 2013, they began working with local cosmetology laboratories specialised in the extraction of plant matter and cosmetic formulation. Inspired by previous scientific research, the team spent many months studying the active ingredients contained in organic Loire vines at their various stages of growth.
On the vine branches, they discovered the presence of active ingredients with anti-ageing benefits due to their antioxidant properties which are particularly powerful during blossoming.
The name Sarmance alludes to the French word sarment (vine shoot) and the notions of renaissance, romance and fragrance.
