Hello Camille, can you introduce yourself ?
I am a pharmacist and expert in aromatherapy, I really have the ambition to help and secure the experience with essential oils, for the largest number of people
What is MEDENE ?
So MEDENE, you should know that it comes from MEDEN AGAN which means: Nothing too much.
It’s the philosophy of moderation, of returning to the essentials. It’s a quote from Socrates.
So it was very important for Laure and Marie-Claire, who are my two associates, to have this “Back to the Essential” side. We are going to “source” with MEDENE, the essential oils from local producers who are environmentally friendly.
We use only organic essential oils and therefore everything is 100% natural with a synergy that is the smallest in essential oils.
Indeed, we use the least possible ingredients but to have an efficiency and a dosage that is really adapted to the greatest number of people.
You want to accelerate your business by raising money, we can share your project to our network of investors. MY PITCH IS GOOD help you and put you in contact with investors in France and Abroad thanks to our partners.
What are the Oils that MEDENE propose ?
MEDENE was launched last July, in July 2019.
Today we have about 7 products and we have a personalised aromatherapy service that we have been working on for a little more than three years.
Today MEDENE is aimed at all people who want to use essential oils, but are not experts.
That is to say that one must have knowledge of the therapeutic properties of essential oils in order to use them safely.
This is also why we created MEDENE, because there are many accidents, many misuses with essential oils. Today, we are also there to accompany people and therefore we address people, usually
it is often women who have a more particular attraction for the natural and for the “do it yourself”. We really want to accompany them in this process to move to a hyper-secure use of essential oils.
Where are you on the financing purpose ?
A fundraising was set up which was slightly delayed because of the 1st lockdown. It is now under way and well underway. What we are looking for is, above all, network, contacts and expertise.
Today, we are 3 scientists, so we really need marketing support, it’s really something essential.
On the distribution part since we sell via our e-commerce site in distribution but also in physical distribution.
It’s also a real know-how, so it’s also important to have investor and B.A. profiles who have this experience behind them and who can really help us.
