The Officinal

A Wild Lab

The Officinal – A Wild Lab is an artisanal herbal laboratory created to respond to a vision of the future in which nature, sustainability, ecology and ethics become pillars for our reasoning and our actions. Its creation on the Karst plateau in Trieste, Italy, facing a sinkhole surrounded by many different varieties of aromatic and medicinal plants is no coincidence. Nature, our best available teacher, is all around providing endless inspiration for every production process.

Built by maximizing energy efficiency, powered by photovoltaics, reusing processing waste as much as possible and reducing and recycling any other waste material, The Officinal wants to lead you towards a change of perspective. Providing you with cosmetic products for the wellbeing of your family, that combine ancient craftsmanship with contemporary technology and expertise.

The Officinal is attentive to the environment and uses bottles in recycled and recyclable PET plastic, with the possibility of refilling its bottles directly in the laboratory by contacting shop@theofficinal.com or in authorized dealers.

The natural fragrance designed by THE OFFICINAL combines not only the aromatic but also the intrinsic healing properties of 3 essential oils: lavender angustifolia, sage officinalis and citrus aurantifolia (lime). Lavender recalls notes of floral breeze to the nose and is anti-inflammatory, calming, healing. Sage releases an intense Karst note through a relaxing herbaceous scent, notes of eucalyptus and has antibacterial and sebum-balancing properties. Lime adds a green citrus note, cleanses the skin, gives elasticity and softness to the hair and produces a general feeling of well-being in the body. Eucalyptus tea has antibacterial and sebum-balancing properties.

The Philosphy

We are all called to action when it comes to reducing our impact on the planet. It isn’t just a duty, it has become a necessity. Solutions have always been at hand: nature is our most incredible teacher, but listening and understanding is not enough. We need to do everything according to nature knowing that it’s the only possible way. This is the actual evolution, the real added value.

Cosmetics is a field we often take for granted. Too often we buy cheap products prepared with an endless list of potentially harmful chemical substances, and forget we are treating our own skin and the skin of our children. The increase of allergies, intolerances, diabetes and cardiovascular problems are waking calls for a problem that we need to eradicate without compromises. It is our skin that we are treating, and the skin of our children.

The artisanal herbal laboratory The Officinal – A Wild Lab was conceived to respond to a vision of the future that could inspire them. In which nature, sustainability, ecology and ethics become pillars for our reasoning and our actions.
