BOTANICALS - The Science of Engaging Nature


Decades ago we identified nature as the most powerful source of inspiration and ingredients.

Over 60 years of experience in developing, producing and marketing high-quality Botanicals have made Symrise a global market leader in this area.

Our mission is to bring the best of nature closer to everybody’s day-to-day life by supplying the cosmetic industry with valuable and reliable products. Symrise Botanicals are behind leading cosmetic brands as they enhance the overall performance of skin care products by adding natural highlights that are greatly inspirational while at the same time beneficial as they often come with proven skin care activities. 

We provide a huge range of Botanicals in different formats - from traditional extracts to fresh plant juices, vegetable oils or fragrant flower extracts. Our extensive portfolio includes the use of spices, nuts, plant waters, fruit juices, milk extracts, gemstones and many of our products are certified organic by Ecocert & COSMOS standards.



ACTIPONE® – The Activity Tested Range


Actipone® is our premium range of high-quality and mainly standardized Botanicals and perfectly represents the combination of emotion and activity. The inspirational water-soluble extracts come along with proven benefits for skin and hair care products. These activities cover a wide range of cosmetic needs such as antioxidant, skin brightening, soothing, anti-aging, skin firming and hair care benefits.



EXTRAPONE® – The Emotive Range


Extrapone® is our established line of water-soluble plant extracts that Symrise introduced to the market back in the 1950s. From the beginning it was our target to provide easy-to-use Botanicals in a huge variety of highly emotional, traditional but sometimes also exotic extracts that help producers of skin and hair cosmetics to convey the natural product story in a very comprehensible and realistic manner.





Symrise offers a quality selection of vegetable oils and butters, sourced responsibly and sustainably.

These are substantiated by sensory evaluation and activity tests.

From avocado oil to mango butter, the products we produce are able to bring nourishing and caring aspects to skin and hair care formulations.
