TechnicoFlor Group

TechnicoFlor Group has worked hard over the years to become a recognized player on the world stage, while remaining a company with a human face. We enjoy a strong and personal relationship with all our customers.

In 1982, François-Patrick SABATER set up the first company of what was to become the TechnicoFlor Group. It grew fast in the field of the creation and manufacture of aromatic compounds for the fragrance industry. Further subsidiaries were set up to reinforce the group’s capacity and diversity into food flavorings, plant extracts and aromatic ingredients.

As the group grew internationally, it set up new subsidiaries, first on the US market, followed by China, our highest growth market at the present time, while not omitting the necessary investment in other high growth global markets like Indonesia.

Natflor®, NatFair® & Eco-label

keeping up with the times, handing down the planet safely to future generations

Since time immemorial, natural products have enhanced our well-being. Today, TechnicoFlor expresses its environmental values through its choice of raw materials, redirecting its ressources towards natural values.

-

Our perfume experts have thus developed three families of fragrances:

The Natflor line®
100% natural fragrance compounds for Fine Perfumery, Cosmetics and Toiletries. A line of 100% natural, subtle and intense fragrances that will ideally blend with your future projects. Natflor is a range of products complying Ecocert and Cosmos standards. They are made up of 100% pure and natural certified essential oils, of natural substrates and solvents.

The NatFair line®
100% Natural fragrance compounds with fairly sourced and traded natural materials (minimum of 5%).
The whole TechnicoFlor Group has gathered its talents with enthusiasm, to succeed today in offering a natural product that conveys human values.
A global policy of fair trade sourcing.
Taking into consideration the high quality of fair trade raw materials, these replace perfectly conventional ones to integrate our fragrances.
A true soul given in our Natfair creations.

The Eco-Label line
Eco-Label compliance means using compounds developed from processes which limit the most hazardous substances to health and the environment, and which strictly prohibit the use of allergenic or similar compounds.
Our Eco-Label fragrances are original, attractive and sophisticated. They are used - among other - in detergents, cleaning products, shower gels, cosmetics and soaps, all developed by a concern for environmental protection.

Our creation process

Natflor & éco-label

Fragrances

Creating fragrances, is undoubtedly an art

The created artwork affects our lives as few others do: the evocative power of a perfume, its ability to touch and move us, is unrivalled.
Today, before producing unforgettable fragrances, the perfumer has to master the rigorous skills that have been developed and handed down from generation to generation, and which are the outcome of a long and technologically sophisticated tradition.

In response to the increasing global demand for "natural" products, so strongly felt in the fragrance field, TechnicoFlor has adopted a responsible and committed approach to environmental protection. A range of natural products has been specially developed as part of our portfollio.
