Sicily, italy

What makes this
land so special?

Centuries of organic excellence, cultivated with care.

Nestled between Monte Barraù and Monte Castro on the island of Sicily, La Furtuna Estate is 350 hectares of pristine farmland. This idyllic region is home to familiar organic treasures, as well as rare local species.

In the springtime, snowmelt from Monte Barraù replenishes the land’s freshwater stream, nourishing an incredible variety of flora and fauna. Undeveloped for more than 400 years, La Furtuna Estate grows plants that are exceptionally potent. Medicinal herbs like geranium, spearmint, St. John’s wort, and marigold are up to seven times more powerful than their heavily farmed relatives.

We’ve taken ingredients and inspiration from La Furtuna Estate to craft a collection of safe and effective topical formulas for children. Each Bambini Furtuna product draws upon Sicily’s rich ecological heritage to help soothe your little one.
