Why favor natural cosmetics made in France?

We are all becoming aware of the importance of taking care of our health and our environment. We must therefore act on all of our consumption, including the products we select to take care of ourselves.

Organic, natural cosmetics:what are the differences?

An organic cosmetic product and a natural cosmetic product both have one thing in common :the presence of natural ingredients and of natural origin.

Thus, the ingredients present in natural cosmetics are not necessarily organic. They can be of vegetable, animal or mineral origin, and have undergone a physical transformation that allows them to preserve all their benefits.

The advantages of organic and natural cosmetics

By choosing to use organic and natural cosmetics, you are choosing to respect your body and the environment . Indeed, the cosmetics industry uses chemicals that are harmful to your health. The fear of disease such as cancer, but also of other pathologies, makes it urgent to switch to natural products that will allow you to take care of yourself.
