A pioneer in plant-based dermo-cosmetics, A-DERMA Dermatological Laboratories has cultivated the art of caring for and nurturing fragile skin for more than 30 years thanks to a unique active ingredient, Rhealba® Oat.
A story made in France!
It all started in the 1970s when Pierre Fabre, a pharmacist from Castres impassioned by botany, set his heart on cultivating the Oat, a neglected plant that nevertheless has been used for over three thousand years for medicinal purposes. This marked the beginning of extensive research that continues even today in South West France.
A-DERMA has expanded the idea of respect beyond skin care by advocating a code of ethics in harmony with both humans and nature and places this ecological and human commitment at the heart of its activities.
A-DERMA is proud to be made entirely in France
From the crops to the finished products, everything is produced in France, locally in the South West.
It supports people
Rhealba® Oat farming provides work for the South West region. The cultivation of crops is entrusted to local farmers.
It protects the environment
Rhealba® Oat is cultivated according to organic farming standards with sustainable development in mind; it consumes little water; everything is produced locally to limit the carbon footprint; the oat pomace obtained during extraction is used to fuel the Soual plant, the only French cosmetic factory equipped with a biomass boiler. Lastly, the A-DERMA brand is involved in a local carbon neutral programme that plants forest hedges (presented at COP 21).
