Our company received the mention "Slow Cosmetique"
Back to Basics MANUFACTURES ITS PRODUCTS IN MARSEILLE USING TRADITIONAL METHODS
Our healthy products are manufactured in our workshop, located in Marseille, all are hand made and natural cosmetics.
To offer you healthy, synthetic-free products, we have selected naturally occurring, fragrance-free ingredients that are free from colorings and other additives, as we learn new ways in which these additives are harmful to our health each day. We stand in opposition to the industrial manufacturers and their products that are stuffed with chemical ingredients, each of which is more obscure than the last.
A philosophy arose: to recreate the most effective products of all times - those that were used by our ancestors since time immemorial.
Soap made in the traditional Marseille style
Our handmade soap, made with 100% organic olive oil fats, was the first product that we made. This natural soap is made using a cold saponification process, which is suitable for all types of skin, even the most sensitive - including babies and children.
It is suitable for personal hygiene purposes (body, face, hair) and to care for your home (laundry, dishes, and floors), making it a product that combines practicality with low overall costs and pure, natural origins.
Our soap, which is free from palm oil and fully biodegradable, contains 7% emulsion content (oil that is known as "unsaponified") which makes it very mild and gives it a powerful moisturizing effect.
A gentle solid shampoo for your hair
Choose our natural Argan Oil and Rhassoul solid shampoo for a healthy and eco-friendly new hair routine. Our solid shampoo is suitable for the whole family and every type of hair thanks to its 100% natural ingredients.
Including a natural surfactant (SLMI) derived from coconut (around 35%), our solid shampoo is non-irritating and can be used frequently, although its cleansing power allows you to leave longer gaps between washes.
Our natural shampoo is free from silicone, sulphates, parabens, perfumes and essential oils. It is perfect for the most sensitive scalps thanks to the soothing properties of rhassoul.
Toothpaste made in the Middle Eastern tradition
Also learn more about our powdered toothpaste, which will change your brushing habits! A little water, a little powder on your toothbrush, and you'll discover a new kind of toothpaste that is completely natural, fluoride free, and contains no synthetic products.
A natural toothpaste that perfectly cleans your teeth and protects your gums without being harmful to your health.
Our Miswak toothpaste is very mild and does not attack the enamel of your teeth, while also ensuring long-lasting fresh breath. Miswak powder, which is produced using our own recipe, has been known for its unique properties that favor dental hygiene.
A deodorant that controls perspiration and eliminates odor.
Learn more about our natural, powdered deodorant made from the root of Iris Florentina. We have selected natural ingredients that are free from paraben, alcohol, and aluminum salts to offer you our handmade deodorant, which cares for your skin and allows your body to function naturally.
One of the key ingredients in our deodorant is powdered iris root. The iris is a natural plant that is well known for protecting the skin, eliminating bacteria, and regulating perspiration.
Your natural powdered deodorant will last for two months in its recyclable plastic roll-on packaging. We also offer refills so that you can reuse the roll-on for as long as you like.
A moisturizing and soothing solid cream with shea butter
Our solid natural cream is used all over the body and fits all skins. Made in our workshop in Marseille, it contains four ingredients all certified of natural origin and without pesticides.
Provide quality care for your skin with this solid cream, including olive oil and shea butter. Discover many way to use our natural cream that comes in the form of a balm.
In contact with the heat of your skin, the cream will melt very lightly to allow you to pass it on the desired area.
Available in different formats (50g, 150g or 300g), choose what suits you best and enjoy a natural moisturizer, delivered without unnecessary packaging in a "zero waste" lens.
A gift box to discover our products
We created for you a nice gift box combining your favorite products and allowing you to discover them to your loved ones! This gift box will allow you to present to your loved ones our artisanal and natural cosmetics.
A nice gift idea or just a way to discover at lower cost all of our range. From our natural olive oil soap, to powder deodorant and Miswak toothpaste, to the soap flakes to make your homemade laundry, all these products are grouped in a nice organic cotton pouch, woven and printed in France, in the Vosges.
We make our products using craft techniques, making small amounts each day, to offer high-quality, healthy products.
We carefully check each product we send to you, paying particular attention to their packaging and labeling. We don't have any giant industrial machines, and most of our work is carried out by hand, piece by piece.
Wherever possible, we try to select French craftspeople to deliver our raw materials and production supplies.
100% natural products
We have attempted to create natural cosmetic products with simple, clearly understandable ingredients so that you can be confident in using products that are healthy, for the sake of your skin and your family.
We don't add any preservatives, dyes or fragrances to our cosmetics. We prefer natural items because of the vital interest for humanity and the planet in minimizing the use of harmful chemicals.
We want to get back to basics without living in the past. Doing things "like before" - following the old ways - but living in the present: that's our goal!
A family business that's close to you
Our team is human and family-sized. We were 2, today we are 4 to prepare your orders every day and to make your soaps, toothpaste powder and all our other products.
We are proud to offer 100% natural cosmetics and to put our heart and soul into making, labeling, and packing our products.
We are delighted to receive your (thankfully positive) feedback each day and to read your comments and emails. And, of course, we continuously look for new natural products that will change (and even revolutionize) your daily routine!

Shipping everywhere in the world
We deliver your order all over the world, with a minimum cost for you (from 3,50€) which means that you can enjoy our products without paying exorbitant delivery charges. Of course, for environmental and economical reasons, we can only encourage you to combine your orders by buying the various products you need together. This will also limit the energy consumption involved in our shipments.
We ship your orders within one to two days, after which they are delivered by Colissimo in France, and then your local post office within 5-6 days. Your order will, therefore, reach you within an average of seven business days from approval (if we don't have too many orders to deal with).
Our values for you all
We believe that transparency is the key to our society. We want to offer cosmetics that are 100% natural and, to ensure that you can put your trust in us, we cannot keep anything hidden from you. You will, therefore, find a detailed list of the ingredients of all our products, details of where the ingredients and packaging come from, and photos of our day-to-day operations at our premises that are regularly posted on social networks.
Ecology at the heart of our commitment
Our approach - to offering healthy, pure cosmetics - is, of course, accompanied by an environmentally friendly outlook. As such, we are constantly seeking ways to reduce our ecological impact and to reduce our waste, in relation to our manufacturing process, the raw materials used, and in our product packaging. As such, 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, no matter what the product
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 ideal, but we do our best to use products that are "made in France" wherever possible or at most from neighboring European countries.
