Dr. Andrea Alimonti, a world-renowned geneticist, screened thousands of different plants for their ability to maintain human cells in a youthful state. He was ultimately able to identify a handful of plant extracts with intense anti-aging action: prawn sage was by far the most active extract and is the basis for our skincare line. Dr. Alimonti’s research is published on the most prominent peer reviewed international scientific journals, such as “Nature”. All Bottega Organica ingredients are harvested and processed naturally from our farms in Italy and upstate NY – straight from farm to bottle. You won’t find any preservatives, emulsifiers, artificial fragrances, colors or synthetics of any kind.
