Making a brand out of an organic conscience
alva Naturkosmetik from Osnabrück has been successful on the market since 1988. Based on experience from activities over many years in the organic movement the owner, Martin Plassonke, decided to produce high quality, organic products himself and to market them professionally. In order to adhere to the high quality requirements in raw materials his even bought his own, organically operated tea tree plantation in Australia in 1995.
Today alva offers retailers and consumers a wide range of products: valuable natural cosmetics, essential oils and much more. Various advertising measures combined with a close-knit sales network with over 10,000 outlets alva is becoming an even more attractive partner on the market.
alva Naturkosmetik is convinced that cosmetics that are based on natural substances are far superior to others in environmental compatibility and efficiency. This consciousness forms the foundation of all that we do. We have set ourselves the aim of producing only natural cosmetics that adhere to the highest possible requirements.
The ingredients in alva products come, where available, from controlled organic cultivation or from the wild. All ingredients are carefully selected and tested. In order to be able to offer only the very best quality only the very best ingredients are used for the manufacture of our products.
We mainly use jojoba oil as the basis of our creams and lotions. It costs many times more than paraffin and sunflower oil. We also use natural vitamin E. This is also far more costly than synthetic vitamin E.
