      The floviva range of absolutes offer a 100% Pure & Natural material obtained by alcohol extraction of concretes, globally sourced from our farmers, co-operatives and partnerships at origin.  Absolutes are highly regarded in natural perfumery, comprised of the concentrated aromatic oil that represents very closely in aroma the raw material from which it has been produced.  Alcohol soluble and usually of a mobile liquid form, absolutes offer a deeper colouring than essential oils and contain waxes and other plant constituents that bring the true aroma of the plant source to life.

      The floviva range of waxes, both natural and synthetic offer a variety of benefits to modern day formulations. With raw material of plant origin or from honey bees, our globally produced materials are sourced with sustainability at the forefront of our responsibility. For that reason, our synthetic options are an alternative to ensure international trade in plants does not threaten their survival (CITES agreement).


      Composed of fatty acid esters, hydrocarbons and with high melting points, our certified organic and conventional range are used in many industries. Providing stability, improving viscosity and consistency and offering protective and film forming properties, our waxes are important raw materials in personal care formulations but are also important in candle making as well as food, pharmaceutical, household and industrial industries.
