Inside our Products
These are our star ingredients:
We have chosen the most effective natural ingredients to support children in developing strong and healthy skin.
Sourced from responsible supply chains and a circular economy, we use organic avocados from which we extract Avocado Perseose®, an active ingredient which strengthens the skin barrier and protects the cellular capital of your baby’s underdeveloped skin.
We extract Sunflower Oil Distillate from the seeds of French organic sunflowers. This patented active ingredient with soothing properties helps to rebuild the skin’s protective layer.
Sourced from organic beekeeping, we combine our precious beeswax with Cold Cream to deeply nourish your baby’s skin while also preserving its protective barrier.
Known for its many benefits, olive oil has been used since Antiquity by Mediterranean countries. Cold-extracted, our olive oil retains its high content in omega 6 and 9 to nourish the skin.
Maracuja (passion fruit)
Maracuja, present in our maternity range, improves skin elasticity and helps to preserve suppleness in changing pregnant skin.

No secret recipe
All of our cosmetic products are made from three families of ingredients. They combine effectiveness, tolerance and satisfaction of use with complete safety, throughout their lifetime.
- 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 be pleasing 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.
Each product must pass 450 tests
All these measures 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.
An independent toxicologist involved in 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).
Their mission? To intervene at all key stages of our product development:
• To evaluate and participate in the approval of each ingredient
• To validate the formula and checks its safety for babies and pregnant women
• To check and commit to the safety of the finished product before it is marketed
No product is marketed without this expert's validation, at each stage of the above stages.
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.
