LOCALLY OWNED, LOCALLY GROWN
F rom harvesting the main ingredients to production and packaging, every single one of our products is made here in the South of France. Our fragrances are all developed by Master Perfumers from the Grasse region.
By using local ingredients, craftsman, and artisans we invest in the traditional French beauty methods and promote the richness that Provence has to offer. All of our bottles and packaging are made in-house.
"Our utmost goal is to make natural, high quality products from our treasured countryside accessible to all."

We export our perfumes and cosmetics to over 120 countries and strictly adhere to all legislative requirements to sell our products in every country. You can rest assured that we meet any and all requirements for safety and quality of ingredients. All of our cosmetic care products have a neutral pH for the skin and are dermatologically tested by external laboratories to certify their safety and non-irritating properties. We also partake in testing to ensure our products have hydrating and repairing capabilities. Several tests regarding product quality are conducted in-house:
- Formula stability and ageing tests.
- Compatibility tests of formulas with the packaging.
- Tests among a consumer panel regarding the effectiveness and sensory enjoyment of the formulas.
For our cosmetic and hygiene products, we always strive to use natural ingredients whenever possible, including, organic olive oil, shea butter milk, essential oils of lavender, lavandin, rose, organic lime, sweet almond oil, and organic garrigue honey, among others. Working on the sensoriality and quality of our products, we may use other types of molecules – compliant with regulations concerning cosmetic products – when natural ingredients do not seem to be as effective.
We NEVER use petrochemical materials that are not easily biodegradable or that may be harmful to human health or the environment such as parabens, exfoliating polyethylene beads or formaldehydes. Our formulation laboratory is always searching for innovative uses of raw and natural ingredients to incorporate into our products.

COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY & PRESERVING THE ENVIRONMENT
A ll of our products are guaranteed to not contain any ingredient of animal origin except for honey or honey comb. We are passionate about preserving our beautiful environment and we have developed our exfoliating shower gels with 100% natural exfoliating scrub. There are NO plastic synthetic non-biodegradable microbeads in our exfoliating formulas, meaning that you will not pollute the marine environment by using our products. We have chosen bursts of apricot stones and natural French sand to naturally and gently exfoliate.
We have a Good Manufacturing Practices Certification (ISO 22716 certification) that guarantees consumer product traceability and safety. For our packaging we use recyclable materials so our consumers can sort these materials at home, just like we do in-house at our production site.
All water used for making products is retrieved and reprocessed by a company that is specialized in waste treatment and is therefore not released as a pollutant back into the environment.
Our production buildings have been designed with retention areas. In the unlikely event of of spillage, the products are contained and will not be expelled into the environment. Exporting overseas, we favour road and maritime transport as opposed to air transport for a reduced carbon footprint.
Feel free to be beautiful, the natural way.
