RESPECT FOR THE ENVIRONMENT:
» As a producer of natural ingredients, we are aware of our responsibility for the environment around us and the need to preserve it for future generations. Thus, SANTIS is firmly committed to sustainable development and responsible commerce, involving its customers and suppliers. This commitment is reflected in a thorough examination of our practices and methods, repeatedly in a spirit of continuous improvement, and the display of eco-conscious, eco-responsible products on the market.
» For illustration, SANTIS products are certified organic by ECOCERT, and that all its industrial waste is reworked and reused as compost with its farmers network.
» Our natural ingredients are the result of hard, assiduous work based on a confirmed experience- men and women always ready to give the best of themselves to meet customer satisfaction.
» For generations, these people know the environment and use these raw materials of which they have ancestral knowledge. Today they have taken over SANTIS project, providing its products with a unique touch and know-how.
