If you've come to this page, it's because you're curious to know more about the history and values of our company, Penn'Ty Bio. This company has rapidly become a reference in the field of organic products, natural insecticides and environmentally-friendly solutions. Find out more about the history of Penn'Ty Bio and the vision and values that set it apart in the market.
The History of Penn'Ty Bio
The Penn'Ty Bio adventure began in 2002, when Quentin Dufil's parents set up the company. The first few years were devoted to selling organic products for the garden and vegetable patch. At that time, the company operated mainly at local markets and at a few trade fairs for the general public, favouring direct contact with consumers. However, the vision quickly evolved.
The product range expanded to include essential oils, floral waters, electric diffusers, as well as cosmetics and home care products. This diversification was accompanied in 2005 by the creation of an online shop (a pioneer in this field at the time), enabling Penn'Ty Bio to reach a wider audience throughout France and even abroad.
Penn'Ty Bio took a significant step forward in 2009 by launching its own range of natural insecticides and repellents under its own brand name. This move was in response to growing demand from customers keen to use solutions that respect both people and nature. Penn'Ty Bio products are part of an ethical approach, excluding any synthetic or harmful ingredients.
In 2013, Quentin Dufil joined the company after his parents decided to retire. With his strong ecological convictions, Quentin continued to run Penn'Ty Bio in the beautiful countryside of Ille et Vilaine, after converting an 1878 cottage into business premises. This transition marks a new chapter for the company, anchored in a commitment to sustainability.
Ecological vision and values
Penn'Ty Bio's philosophy is based on solid values and a commitment to the environment. Quentin Dufil, the current manager, grew up in an environment where well-being and healthy products were essential. His passion for products that have a low impact on people and nature underpins the company's mission.
Innovation and entrepreneurship are also cornerstones of Penn'Ty Bio. The company offers a varied range of products, focusing on natural alternatives to traditional chemical products. Ethics and transparency guide the choice of products and suppliers, with a preference for French and European manufacturers and short supply chains.
Respect for the environment is at the heart of Penn'Ty Bio's identity. The company provides clear and transparent information to consumers, helping them to make informed purchasing decisions. Prices are set fairly to make the products accessible to all, while supporting the company's long-term future.
20 Years of Ecological Commitment
In 2022, Penn'Ty Bio celebrates its 20th anniversary, marking two decades of commitment to products that respect people and nature. The company has evolved over the years, diversifying and adapting to the changing needs of environmentally conscious consumers. The history of Penn'Ty Bio is a testament to the growth of a small family business into a benchmark in the field of bio-ecology.
Through the values of passion, innovation, integrity and respect for the environment, Penn'Ty Bio continues to serve its customers with quality products and a transparent approach. With the involvement of Quentin Dufil and his partner Sophie (who will join him in 2019), the company is committed to continuing its mission to offer environmentally-friendly solutions and inspire a more sustainable lifestyle for all.
The Penn'Ty Bio brand
Although the company took the name Penn'Ty Bio from the outset, over the years a range of products with the same name has been added to the catalogue of other brands already on the online shop.
There are now over 100 products available under the Penn'Ty Bio brand, including essential oils, essential oil synergies, insecticides and natural repellents.
Our essential oils
For many years now, Penn'Ty Bio has been building strong partnerships for the supply of its essential oils. Quality is at the heart of everything we do. Each batch of essential oil on offer has been rigorously selected for its organoleptic characteristics and physico-chemical properties.
Thanks to an ongoing dialogue and the close links that our suppliers have maintained for years with our producers, the manufacturing processes, traceability and origin of each batch that we buy are under control. What's more, all the essential oils we sell are organically produced and certified by Ecocert, an independent international certification body.
Finally, our suppliers have structured and organised their commitments according to the principles of CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility). Their management model is based on the various aspects of sustainable development, the three pillars of which are social policy, economic policy and environmental policy (Fair Trade, Fair for Life commitment).
Our essential oil synergies
An essential oil synergy is a blend or rather a combination of several essential oils, or natural plant extracts, which have been combined to meet a specific well-being need. Yes, because they all have their own properties and characteristics. Some are used, for example, for relaxation, others for toning up or for purifying a room. When they are combined, their benefits are enhanced and maximised, or they can complement each other. This is the very principle of synergy : combining them to fulfil a specific function, in this case in aromatherapy.
Penn'Ty Bio synergies are all organically produced and assembled in France: the organic essential oils used have been carefully selected and are controlled by Ecocert.
Our bottles and stoppers
Because we like the idea that you can make your own blends, we also offer glass bottles and stoppers in a range of sizes.
Our natural repellants
Since 2009, we've been offering you a dedicated range. Because we don't necessarily want to eliminate certain insects but just repel them, we have selected repellent products whose active ingredients are exclusively of natural origin (no PBO, no synthetic product, no petroleum product, etc.).
So flies, mosquitoes, wasps and other flying insects, moths, ticks, snakes and many others... will all go away. But that's not all: a number of other specific products target moles, slugs, snakes and small rodents.
Our natural insecticides
Finally, for nearly 15 years, we have been developing innovative insecticide formulas based on plant extracts to precisely target the harmful insects that disrupt your daily life.
All the insecticides we have at Penn'Ty Bio have been carefully selected.
They contain only active ingredients of natural origin (pyrethrum, neem extract, geraniol, diatomaceous earth, etc.) supplemented with water, vegetable alcohol, vegetable or essential oils. Our products do not contain any PBOs, synthetic products or petroleum products.
Daily control of the most common insects (flies, mosquitoes, moths, cockroaches, ants, spiders, fleas, ticks, bedbugs, etc.).
