Alva, organic and natural cosmetic
Alva Naturkosmetik from Osnabrück has been successful on the market since 1988. Based on experience from activities over many years in the organic movement the owner, Martin Plassonke, decided to produce high quality, organic products himself and to market them professionally. In order to adhere to the high quality requirements in raw materials his even bought his own, organically operated tea tree plantation in Australia in 1995.
Today Alva offers retailers and consumers a wide range of products: valuable natural cosmetics, essential oils and much more. Various advertising measures combined with a close-knit sales network with over 10,000 outlets Alva is becoming an even more attractive partner on the market.
The information policy of the company is just as eclectic: be it within the framework of intensive consultancy in specialist shops and consumer trade fairs or through broad public relations work in the press – the purposeful, ecologically oriented PR is the golden thread that runs through the history of the company and is moving increasing numbers of people to support environmental protection.
Alva is also convincing with its external representation: In February 2001 the new Alva logo was presented to the public for the first time at the "BioFach-Messe" trade fair in Nuremberg. Not long afterwards the entire new Alva market presence was pronounced particularly successful during a seminar of the Bavarian ministry for the environment. Renowned commercial partners belong to our clientele: We primarily supply health food shops, natural food shops, organic supermarkets and chemists. Alva naturkosmetik products are also now available in approximately 30 countries in four continents, offered by competent national business partners.
