Neptune Wellness Solutions Inc. announced April 21 has entered into a partnership with renowned primatologist and anthropologist Dr. Jane Goodall to develop a plant-based wellness brand called Forest Remedies.

The brand is said to develop hand sanitizer products, essential oils and hemp-derived products sourced from high-quality botanicals from around the world.

“This marks my third partnership with Michael (Cammarata, Neptune Wellness CEO) and reflects our mutual goal of enabling consumers to make ethical purchasing decisions to create a better world for all living things,” said Dr. Goodall in a statement. “I believe there is still a window of time to heal the planet before it is too late, but only if we each make the right choices every day. I believe that Neptune’s Forest Remedies brand is part of the solution and that is why I am proud to partner with Michael and Neptune to bring new Forest Remedies products to market.”

As part of this partnership, five per cent of all product sales will be donated to support Dr. Goodall’s environmental conservation and reforestation initiatives. Neptune Wellness has already made an initial donation of $25,000 to the Jane Goodall Institute.

“In light of COVID-19, we believe there will be a renewed focus and emphasis on personal self-care.  The purchasing decisions consumers make to support their health and wellness will have a lasting impact on the environment and our collective health and wellness,” said Cammarata.

Neptune Wellness is an extraction, purification and formulation company focused on health and wellness products. The company’s head office is based in Laval, Que while its 50,000-square-foot cannabis facility operates in Sherbrooke, Que. It also runs a 25,000-square-foot facility in North Carolina that processed hemp biomass into extracts.
