Unfortunately, cosmetics are often loaded with compounds from petrochemicals, which can be irritants, allergens, and even endocrine disruptors and carcinogens. These interfere with the hormonal system, and should be avoided especially in toddlers, adolescents and pregnant women.
It is therefore to help consumers easily find healthy beauty products that Isabelle Vitalis has launched My French Cosmetics. Already available online, the range of organic and natural cosmetics is now available in a concept store at the Docks Village in Marseille.
My French Cosmetics: a brand that defends French artisans
My French Cosmetics 's mission is to promote the offer of natural cosmetics from French artisans, in order to offer a real alternative to the offer of conventional cosmetics and to maintain local ecosystems.
The brand only selects organic and natural products made in France by local artisans. Today, it has access to about a hundred manufacturers, and shows about thirty of them in its e-shop and in its concept store.
The range of Mes Cosmétiques Français products is made up of shower and skin care essentials that families can share. "Why buy shampoo and shower gel for dad, one for mom and one for teenager when you can have just one? The advantage of organic and natural products is precisely that they are unisex, and without particular fragrances connoting the genre like conventional cosmetics ", explains the founder of the brand.
A concept store of a new kind
It is at the Docks Village, in the Joliette district, that the concept store Mes Cosmétiques Français will take up residence on September 16, 2019. This unique place gives pride of place to sensoriality, discussion and sharing.
It was designed to take visitors on a walk in Provence, in the Landes and on the Breton coasts. You can smell the scents of the different terroirs, discover new textures such as balm, solid shampoo and deodorant cream, recognize the components and raw materials, or learn how to make a toothpaste or a massage candle..
Isabelle Vitalis will also invite manufacturers and wellness specialists to her shop: we will be able to meet naturopaths, herbalists and aromatherapists, who will learn to care for the skin from the inside.
Three treatment areas
The concept store is organized into three areas:
- A “Shower and care to share” area, arranged in five regional corners: Aquitaine, Brittany, Occitanie, Provence, and Rhône-Alpes. There you will find shower and treatment sets consisting of 5 treatments as well as individual products.
- A “My care routines” space dedicated to each member of the family with seven boxes and individual products: Angel skin (Baby), Round belly (pregnant woman), Stop Bobos (Children), Clean Skin (Teen), Radiant face (Mum), Chewable legs (Mum), and Cotton Candy (Daddy).
- A “zero waste” space with shower gel and shampoo dispenser, and basin for solid soap / shampoo, as well as a shower and special care set.
The concept store will also host events on well-being and zero waste bathrooms, and cosmetic workshops every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. with naturopaths, cosmeticians and experts.
At Mes Cosmétiques Français, we are committed to telling the stories of the products and highlighting their history and their manufacturing processes. Isabelle Vitalis
