The company develops Beauty Care, Health Care and Home Care products in PRIVATE LABEL for many companies around the world. All products are expressly made to meet consumer needs, gaining their trust and reaching full Customer satisfaction. The company commits to a project with the main goal of enhancing customer's brand valuefrom day zero. Over time, N&B has achieved an organic vertical integration. We follow directly all the steps of the production cycle at “Km Zero”, starting from Organic Farming (Aloe Vera, Olives, Wheat, Grapes, Tobacco, Officinal plants, etc) - from which we obtain Organic active principles extracts we use as raw materials - and getting to the finished product, which is then personalised in Private label. The entire production cycle is certified by NATRUE. Today N&B is a leader company in the sustainability arena and the natural cosmetic world. The entire business model is founded on creating shared value alongside the value chain by combining innovation and sustainability. Since its creation, N&B has chosen to make business in a sustainable and responsible way, creating the vision and the slogan “People & Planet First” as a reason of being.
