Optimum concentration of active ingredients
We have chosen to formulate our skincare products not with plain water but with activated water in order to reinforce their efficacy. These are precious and pure plant waters. Each extract contains volatile compounds, mineral salts and trace elements naturally present in the fresh plant. This explains their perfect affinity with the skin and the optimum respect of its PH. The organic orange, organic cherry and cranberry waters present in the formulas have stimulating, anti-aging properties and contribute to optimizing the skin's softness and radiance. The exclusive manufacturing process of the Original Extracts® preserves the active substances of the plants and fruits.
To guarantee the quality of the organic active ingredients we use in our cosmetics, the emulsions are heated slowly at low temperatures so as to preserve their antioxidant properties and optimize their effectiveness.
Cold-pressed virgin oils
We will never use any synthetic oils in our formulas. We prefer cold-pressed oils as they preserve the integrity of the nutrients. We do not heat our oils as this leads to:
All our supplements are formulated by a medical doctor who holds a PhD in micronutrition. She is responsible for choosing the active ingredients, their optimal dosage and bioavailability, and checking that our claims are based on a scientific consensus and validated clinical studies.
Our skincare range is guaranteed 100% natural including our preservatives and fragrances. Our supplement range contains adaptogens and minerals, but it also contains synthetic vitamins in order to guarantee the stability of the formula and maximize its efficiency.
Our cosmetic range is ECOCERT/COSMOS ORGANIC certified but we go far beyond the required standards (around 20%) since our products contain between 50 and 95% of ingredients from organic farming.
With the exception of the pumps for our serum and cleanser, all of our packaging is made of recycled glass and thermodure for the lids and dropper.
Local production and sourcing
Our manufacturing plant is French. The materials we use come from France and Europe. If it is currently impossible to manufacture supplements from local ingredients because of supply chains, this is not the case for skincare. This is why 50% of the organic active ingredients in our skincare range come from French fields. This is well above the average, but still insufficient. We have set up a research program so that our formulas can contain up to 100% of locally grown ingredients.
Carbon offset programs
We work in partnership with ONE TRIBE and the UN to preserve the human and botanical ecosystem of the Amazon rainforest which is the lung of the Earth. Each purchase made on the brand's website is matched by a donation to the various local protection organizations that ensure tree preservation and reforestation programs.
Origin of the ingredients
The sourcing of all the ingredients we use for each product is clearly indicated on our website. Visit our glossary to learn more.
The exact percentage of active ingredients and ingredients from organic farming is shown on our website and on all our packaging.
Our cosmetic range is Ecocert/Cosmos Organic certified. The plants we use in our supplements are also organically grown, but Ecocert does not grant its label to products containing minerals. We do not use the cruelty free certification, which we consider unnecessary as animal testing has been banned in Europe since 2009. We are in the process of obtaining B.Corp. certification.
Unique olfactory signature
We wanted to create a singular scent with a predominance of cut herbs and variations that, depending on the product, recall memories of country walks or Mediterranean citrus fields.
Natural fragrances of Grasse
Developed in collaboration with perfumery experts located in Grasse, all our perfumes are 100% natural and made from plants from local organic cultures.
Sensorial, fast-absorbing textures
All our textures have been developed and tested in collaboration with our cosmetologist and a group of 20 women composed of skincare specialists, journalists and dermatologists.
