About Lisa Franklin:
With over 20 years of experience, Lisa opened the doors to her Knightsbridge clinic privé in 2015 and launched her innovative eponymous skincare brand soon after - Combining cutting-edge green technology and her unparalleled knowledge in plant actives, Lisa Franklin’s skincare range was a pioneer in addressing the negative effects of pollution on skin. Lisa is proud to have been awarded the Positive Luxury Mark, which reflects the brand’s sustainability efforts.
“One of the greatest environmental dilemmas in plant-based skincare is that plant life invariably takes up a sizeable volume of farmland and directly impacts the environment as a result.
Our solution is to apply the most innovative Biotech solutions for high performance, sustainable skincare.
This is why we use Green Technology to harness Plant Cell Culture through eco-designed production methods of extracting stem cells.
Because only a small amount of plant material is needed to produce large quantities of the molecules, this technology provides the most sustainable way to access rare, endangered, and slow growing plants with absolute reproducibility, quality and availability assured.
The use of this technology has a profound impact on the environment in a number of ways: Reduced transportation, no loss of biodiversity, no over exploitation of land and no use of fertilisers, pesticides, or GMOs, amongst others.
This method goes beyond organic, and I am proud that most of our plant-based ingredients are cultivated using this innovative process.” – Lisa Franklin
To Decant Or Not To Decant
People seem to enjoy a bit of theatrical decanting. A waistcoated waiter flamboyantly pouring a noble red from on high, not into just one crystal vessel but a series of decorous decanters, each more elaborate than the last, and not a drop spilled upon the linen. Well, is it anything more than showtime?
We have been reflecting on our past vintages - how they change, develop and the contrasts as well as similarities between them. Our Pinot Noir 2016 and Blanc de Noirs 2016 provide a unique comparison between a still and sparkling Pinot Noir, as well as excellent examples of the 2016 vintage.
What Grows Together Goes Together
Every county fights its corner for culinary excellence. It’s not for nothing that Kent is known as the Garden of England and neighbouring Sussex has a well-earned reputation for world-class food and wine. The impressive gastronomic bounty of these counties means visitors to Gusbourne Estate are guaranteed an authentically local experience in their glass and on their plate.
