"BaumStory" is also a real "LoveStory" with desert and mountain plants!
I am Catherine Baum, Founder of the Geneva brand BAUM all naturals®.
I first lived for 32 years in Burkina Faso, a country in the south of the Sahara where I discovered the extraordinary virtues of natural tree extracts and local plants, such as shea butter, pure and natural baobab oils, desert date and other oils and plants with extraordinary properties, especially in harsh climates.
I could not leave Burkina Faso without creating a brand of natural cosmetics that I consider as a «bridge» between this botanically rich region and Europe, which also has plants with exceptional virtues, notably in harsh climate.
During "my African life", I had the opportunity to discover the best rural women's groups producing butters and oils extracted from trees and processed according to local know-how, those which preserve the beneficial properties of plants, while also satisfying the conditions for exporting to the international market.
I buy my basic ingredients from these producers to support them socially and allow them to perpetuate these ancestral know-how. I combine them with the wonderful properties of pure Alpine water and mountain plants, for a highly qualitative natural cosmetics that I invite you to discover on our shop.
