Since 2003, the family business Les Essentiels has been manufacturing 100% natural cosmetics, without water or inert matter.
Originally, in 2003, Pascal and Nancy owned a bed and breakfast in Chasteuil in the Gorges du Verdon and created their own soaps for their guests. Then, in 2010, their son Sébastien decided to develop the family business himself from Aix (dept 13) where his wife is from. He quits his job in Paris and takes his stepfather and an American friend to start a real cosmetics business.
Today, the range has around thirty products for sale: balms (repairing, regenerating, nourishing, aftershaves, old-fashioned shaving soaps ...), moisturizing serums and oils, anti-aging, scrubs. ... And a dozen 100% natural solid soaps and shampoos, made by cold saponification and designed with vegetable oils (olive oil, vegetable coconut oil, vegetable rice bran oil, vegetable castor oil ) mixed with natural fragrances made from essential oils.
Their flagship product: the Serum of Light, a 100% natural anti-aging with strong antioxidant power formulated from a complex of 14 noble and precious vegetable and essential oils. It regenerates cells, stimulates skin microcirculation and revitalizes the epidermis.
Since 2014, the brand has been recognized by the Slow cosmetics association.
