Hibiscus, Parsley, licorice, thyme, lemon grass are the mix of herbs in Sekem’s detox tea. The herbs comes to you from El-Wahat, Aswan, Beni Suief, and Minia, check out the map to see where each individual herb is grown. They’re cultivated using the highest form of organic agriculture called biodynamic. The farms are Demeter and Economy of Love certified, ensuring the sustainable practices and the protection of the environment, human and animal welfare.

With biodynamic agriculture, the farms are treated as a whole organism in which each element of the farm contribute to its well-being. Plant waste and animal manure are treated into compost that boosts the regenerative ability of the soil and humus formation.

With the EoL Carbon Credits adding an additional income to the farmer, EoL is aiming to make biodynamic agriculture the mainstream method in Egypt, by reducing the price of biodynamic products.

Through the EoL fund and microcredits programs, farmers are encouraged to plant more trees, produce more compost and use renewable energy on their farms, thus prominently contributing to climate change mitigating.

Waleed is an agriculture engineer in Wahat SEKEM. His children study at SEKEM school, also his wife teaches Arabic there. They are living a wonderful new experience surrounded by calming beautiful places. He’s a hard worker farmer trying to cover all the herbs needed in the market.


The herbs first arrive at Lotus factory where tests are conducted to ensure the organic and Demeter quality first. Then the herbs are cleaned, sifted and cut to the required size, ready to be sent to iSiS factory to be packed.

As a processor of organic raw materials, lotus generates large masses of organic waste, that are being sent to compost sites to be turned into compost.

100% of the factory wastewater is being recycled and reused for tree irrigation on the factory property.

Lotus offsets its carbon emission by buying carbon credits from local sources that guarantee the support of small farmers.


25kg bags of different herbs arrive at the iSiS factory located a few meters away from the lotus factory. The herbs are mixed together in the mixer, once they’re ready the detox tea is uploaded in the packaging machine to be packed in the tea bags and envelops. Demeter quality is ensured throughout the mixing and packing process.

iSiS was able to reduce 77% of its no-organic waste as well as reducing 25% of its organic waste. iSiS tries to reduce as much waste as possible, the rest of the recyclable non-organic waste is sold to external recycling entities.

Factory workers work in safe conditions and receive health consultancies (in topics such as nutrition, mental health, and physiotherapy) to promote well-being in the workplace.

You will find confident and active women all around you when entering the iSiS factory. iSiS empowers women through sessions that build their capacity and teach them how to voice their needs and individuality.

Packaging Material

The packaging material plays a significant role in the product quality and impact on the environment, for that SEKEM always seeks to be responsible in choosing the best material for better lifetime for the product and the environment.

The tea bags of the detox tea have no whiteners or bleach added to them, making them a healthier option for tea bags where there is no chemicals to react with hot water.

The filter bags, the carton box and the label are FSC certified. Additionally the filter tea bags are tied together with the thread label, with no need for the metal part to attach them together.

Some packages require plastic wrap to meet customer’s requirements. However, the company is committed to finding more eco-friendly alternatives.


The Detox tea packages are now ready to be distributed directly to your home, local shops, or overseas.

Distribution process is under the supervision of iSiS to ensure the selection of the shipping cars to be cleaned and qualified for the process.

The emissions produced during the distribution process are calculated and offset by Sekem holding. 

During overseas shipments the first choice is always sea freight to reduce emissions, however air fright is needed sometimes for smaller orders.

What is the True Price?

Are there hidden costs that the price doesn't reflect?

True Price Comparision

Sustainably & ethically produced products add value to society. However, when comparing prices, we don’t take into account the long-term impact of the product. For example, since the sustainable agricultural practices of cultivating the herbs in this detox tea is sequestering Co2e it is actually saving up future damage cost that you’ll eventually pay for. This means that it is cheaper than products that emit Co2e, but so often the price tag doesn’t reflect that.

We encourage you to compare products based on their true price; the price that reflects the hidden costs that you and future generations eventually pay for.

Indirect Costs include:



Society is paying taxes to clean water sources from agriculture’s chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides, as well as the irresponsible disposal of wastewater from factories, in order to make it usable/drinkable water.


The use of pesticides in agriculture eventually affects the human body and therefore increases medical treatment costs.






Society has to bear the long-term cost caused by disruptive agriculture e.g. soil erosion, desertification, and loss of biodiversity.
