Developed in collaboration with The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the range combines beauty science and plant science to bring luxurious, affordable skincare solutions that reveal beautiful, radiant, healthy looking skin. Exploring the best of the world’s flora, Boots UK and Kew have identified some of the most powerful plant extracts and have preserved their natural essence to develop skin care solutions that really work.
Dr Mike Bell, Boots Skincare Scientific Expert says: “Boots UK set out to prove that natural ingredients really can work and our scientists started researching and identifying properties in plants that aid skin protection and renewal to leave skin looking soft and beautiful.”
As a world leading botanical institute, Kew’s role in the development of the Botanics range, has been to help Boots UK authenticate the extracts and make sure they contain the most effective active ingredients. This means testing strains of extracts from plants grown all over the world, and identifying the specific strain that contains the highest level of active ingredient to deliver the desired benefit.
These ingredients are combined in wonderfully effective recipes to create amazing skincare solutions customers can depend on for being absolutely natural and proven to work.
Professor Monique Simmonds, Director of Kew Innovation Unit, The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew says: “Identifying and authenticating ingredients isn’t always enough to create an efficacious cosmetic. The actives in a product must be stable, present at levels that can make a difference and must be from a sustainable source – this is the case with Botanics and is the result of years of research and collaboration.”
The Botanics range is available now in Boots UK stores and on boots.com. To help you rediscover the power of plants, Boots UK are offering a money back guarantee*. If customers are not 100% happy with their purchase, they will be given a full refund (available on all Botanics products).
