HOW IT ALL BEGAN
ELEPHAS founder, Olivier Behra, has been working in R&D of active ingredients for various big cosmetic brands for years. He is passionate about linking natural resources to products that make sense and with a positive impact, not only on the skin, but also on the planet and on the communities in which they are sourced. Much of his work was conducted on the field in Africa and led him to understand that if we managed to properly enhance the value of the natural resources for the local communities, they will become the best allies for wildlife conservation.
To make the brand come alive, it was key to bring together some of the most talented women, experts in their field and motivated by sustainable development and empowering other women. Galiya and Louise successfully launched the brand and run it on a daily basis. ELEPHAS also benefits from the expertise of Agnes, Karen, Senda and Valerie.
Their commitment to making the world a better & healthier place, paired with Olivier’s life-long commitment to sustainable development, make the strength of ELEPHAS.
