Our handcrafted and natural products are manufactured in our workshop, in the heart of Marseille.

To offer you wholesome, synthetic-free products, we have selected naturally occurring, fragrance free ingredients that are dye-free and additive free.We chose this stance because we know now for a fact that many and most industrial cosmetic companies put harmful, toxic and unnecessary chemicals, additives and dyes in their products without you even knowing about it. We stand against  industrial manufacturers and their products that are full of chemicals, each one more harmeful and toxic than the last.

This is how our outlook and philosophy came to be: to recreate the most efficient and celebrated products - those used by our ancestors since time immemorial.

Our values

Absolute transparency

We believe that transparency is one of the key foundations of our business. We want to offer cosmetics that are 100% natural and, to ensure that you can put your trust in us, we don’t keep anything hidden from you. Thus , you’ll find a detailed list of the ingredients in all our products, info about where the ingredients and packaging come from, and photos of our day-to-day operations in our workshop and offices that are regularly posted on social media.

 

The environment is at the heart of our commitment

Our modus operandi - offering wholesome ,healthy, pure cosmetics - is, of course, followed by an environmentally friendly outlook. As such, we are constantly seeking ways to reduce our ecological impact and always trying to find ways to reduce our waste, our manufacturing process, the raw materials used, and in our product packaging. That’s why you won't find an invoice or delivery note in your package, and all the packaging that we do send is recyclable or biodegradable.

 

Made in France, always 

Our premises are located in Marseille, in the city's oldest  neighborhood, the Panier District. We manufacture all our cosmetics ourselves and handle both packaging and shipping as well. We prioritize French suppliers for all our raw materials and manufacturing supplies. Of course, it's not always easy to achieve this goal , but we do our best to use products that are "made in France" whenever possible or at most from neighboring European countries.
