FARM TO FASHION SKINCARE
SIBARI, CALABIA, ITALY I am Lady Cipria, a blogger and influencer with women all over the world. In 2017, I joined with Farm to Fashion +b to create three beauty skincare collections. +b was launched five years ago by Bianca Ferro, whose mantra is “Fashion, Passion and Love.” She inherited from her grandmother a passion for fashion and a great love to nature.
+b is a branch of Favella Group farmland, located in the plain of Sibari, Calabria. It is one of the most ancient agricultural communities in the Mediterranean Sea region, with 700 buffaloes, 593 acres for pasture, vegetable gardens, rice, citrus trees and olives.
This partnership between +b and me brings two very different worlds together. The three main ingredients in our skincare line are buffalo milk, goji berries and moringa. Milk production takes place directly at the company’s dairy farm, producing 2000 kilos of milk with a strong fat content (mostly polyunsaturated) and protein. Our buffalo milk collection has emollient, nourishing and protective proprieties which improves skin texture and helps prevent aging.
Favella Group is the ﬁrst agricultural company in Europe to cultivate goji berries. Originating from the Himalayas, are considered one of the most nutritious, antioxidant-rich foods in the world. Our goji berry collection protects the skin from free radicals and photo-aging, with a restructuring and lifting effect.
Moringa Oleifera, to use its scientiﬁc name, is one of the most nutrient-rich plants in the world, with iron, vitamins A, K and E, calcium and magnesium. Thanks to continuous research and the characteristics of the soil in Sibari, we can cultivate this precious plant. Our moringa collection counteracts the effects of pollution, restores radiance, and improves skin quality.
Through savvy marketing, we have found an innovative approach to combine agriculture and fashion. We work together to share the whole process of production—from the raw material to the ﬁnished product. Nature is our partner and friend in helping us keep our beauty!
