The story of Frantsila
The family-owned Frantsila is a pioneer in organic herb farming in Finland. The Frantsila farm has been in the family for over 300 years. The fields of Frantsila have officially been in organic farming since 1977.

Handmade cosmetics from Finland
Frantsila collects their plants by hand when they are at their freshest and healthiest. After this the plants are extracted when still fresh or quickly dried in low temperature in order to preserve their natural properties and guarantee their microbiological purity. The purity and efficiency of Frantsila’s plants are regularly tested.
Frantsila makes mixtures, extracts and various skincare products from the dried plants. Frantsila uses slow and gentle extracting methods in order to preserve the natural scents, colors and effective ingredients in the end product. The oils used by Frantsila are cold-pressed and mainly organically farmed.
