WHAT DOES OUR COMMITMENT TO NATURAL FORMULAS INVOLVE?
Jean-Louis Pierrisnard, Scientific Communications Director
"We are told that in Provence beauty secrets can be found in plants, and it's in our laboratories that these secrets are discovered."
COSMETIC FORMULAS THAT ARE ECO-FRIENDLY
One of our goals is to make products that are more natural and more biodegradable so as to reduce their impact on the environment.
The quest to be more natural is a continual objective and drive behind our R&D. The naturality of our ingredients and formulas enable us to create products that have pleasant textures and proven efficiency. By using ingredients of natural origin, we also ensure a sustainable supply chain, whilst respecting the biodiversity of our planet.
We promote eco-friendly manufacturing for our ingredients by using energy-saving and environmentally friendly technologies. These include distillation (to make essential oils and floral waters), plant maceration and cold pressing (to make plant oils or citrus oils).
CONSUMER SAFETY HAS ALWAYS AND WILL ALWAYS BE A PRIORITY
We ensure that 100% of all new products are put through rigorous testing. This amounts to around 1'200 clinical tests per year.
We manufacture and control the quality of our products before launching them to market and impose the strictest international quality and regulatory standards.
Every day, a team of 30 people work to ensure that our products are safe and that they conform to regulation. Their work starts at the design stage and continues throughout the entire marketing life-cycle.
The effectiveness of our ingredients is proven through in-vitro laboratory tests and state-of-the-art prediction methods. However, we always complement this with additional consumer tests and in-vivo clinical studies.
Our clinical studies are carried out by independent doctors (dermatologists, ophthalmologists and pediatrics). They use dermatological checks in real life conditions, or instrumental measurements on a panel of volunteers.
