Three questions for Isabelle and Marco Pacchioni
Founders of Puressentiel :

What are the origins of aromatherapy?

Aromatherapy is an ancestral science, recognised and used for more than 3,000 years. There is evidence of its use in aboriginal civilisations, ancient Egypt, ancient Greece and the Middle Ages. Since the 1970s and with the advent of modern analysis techniques, aromatherapy has become a modern and recognised scientific discipline.

Essential oils have been the subject of over 15,000 official publications, all published in specialist scientific journals by international research teams and experts*. With its modern-day revival and recognition of its efficacy, aromatherapy has become a mainstay of so-called "natural and complementary" treatments.

What does Puressentiel bring to the aromatherapy market?

Puressentiel has brought a new impetus to the aromatherapy market.

We started the aromatherapy "trend" in France by making it accessible to everyone, safe and easy to use. We have systematically provided evidence of its efficacy and almost 10 years on, all the products that we have launched are still on the market and continue to grow in popularity. Our consumer satisfaction rates across the entire range stand at 99.38%*.

Puressentiel has now become a real solution for the daily well-being of the whole family. It has even become a real habit for many people! We sell through pharmacies and parapharmacies because we believe that a pharmacist's expertise and advice is essential.

A success which has sacrificed none of its founding values?

We created Puressentiel together. It's a family-run company. Our sister, Florence, is Operations Director and our son, Rocco, is International Director.

Through our independence, freedom to be innovative without restriction, strict quality charter, commitment to exceeding expectations, 100% natural products and French production, we take the utmost care in the production of our products.

The best evidence of this comes from the ongoing satisfaction of our users and their trust in our brand.

The secret to the success of our products lies in their efficacy and naturalness.
