The Botanical Conservatory of Cambounet-sur-le-Sor – Understanding the botanical expertise of the Pierre Fabre group, as well as its actions to protect biodiversity

A few kilometers from Castres, there is a nineteenth-century mansion surrounded by a park of 6 hectares, four of which are French gardens. It was here that the Botanical Conservatory of Bosc dal Mas was built in 2001, at the request of Pierre Fabre himself. A unique and meaningful concept, the Conservatoire is entirely dedicated to research, safeguarding and conservation: more than 900 plant species, including 285 protected species, are now sheltered there.

The search for natural substances of therapeutic or dermo-cosmetic interest has always been a major research focus at Pierre Fabre. 62% of revenues are related to products with assets from nature. More than 240 plants are used in the group's products.

Nature is a fabulous field of exploration and it is here that the Group's researchers will find the medicines and care of tomorrow.

Aware of its dependence on biodiversity, Green Mission Pierre Fabre therefore makes every effort to preserve nature, protect endangered species, discover plant engineering and transmit the passion for plants to the younger generations.

Workshops will be organized for adults and children, with the opportunity to come and discover the collections of rare plants, medicinal or cosmetic.
