You would think this lab is where the food is prepared. Lemongrass and rosemary are on the shelf alongside other dried herbs in labeled glasses; A first aisle, a collection of pipette bottles offers a selection of oils, for example from orange or argan seeds. But what is made from these ingredients is not intended for the stomach, but for the skin. Here in Wennigsen in the Hanover region, natural cosmetics from the Lavera brand are developed over 400 square meters of laboratory space.
