No secret recipe

No secret recipe

All of our cosmetic products are made from three families of ingredients. They combine effectiveness, tolerance and pleasure of use with complete safety, throughout their lifetime.

Our recipe?

  • Active ingredients extracted from the plant world, for product efficiency
  • One or more excipients, to create a pleasant texture and to ensure the proper diffusion of active ingredients
  • Other ingredients to complete our formulas: a conservation system to preserve them over time, pH stabilizers, or fragrances for some products, to offer more pleasure to the senses, etc.

A controlled process at every stage

In order to create formulas that combine quality, safety and effectiveness, these parameters need to be checked at every stage of our product’s development. To do so, we perform over 450 measures and tests with an independent toxicologist.

Image
450 measures and tests

Each product must pass 450 measures and tests

All these measures and tests include stability tests under normal and extreme conditions, product safety tests (evaluation of antimicrobial protection), in vitro safety tests on reconstructed skin models and in vivo clinical tests under dermatological control.

Each product must pass all of these tests before it is marketed.

Independent toxicologist

An independent toxicologist present at all stages

To guarantee the safety of our products, we call an independent toxicologist in (i.e. someone who is not employed by our laboratories).

His mission?
He intervenes at all key stages of our product development:

  • He evaluates and participates in the approval of each ingredient
  • He validates the formula and checks its safety for babies and pregnant women
  • He checks and commits to the safety of the finished product before it is marketed

No product is marketed without this expert’s validation, at each of the above stages.

Monitoring of quality and safety

Monitoring of quality and safety on the finished product

We carefully monitor the life of the product once it is on the market. We handle all complaints and adverse effects with utmost care and attention, as part of our quality and cosmetovigilance process.
