  • How often should I use a facial scrub?

    You should use a scrub on normal skin once or twice a week. You can tailor this frequency to your skin’s specificities; twice a week for oily skin or if you are often exposed to pollution, but only once a week if your skin is acne-prone, to prevent blemishes from becoming irritated, or sensitive.

  • How does the Melting Exfoliating Facial Gel work on my skin?

    The Melting Exfoliating Facial Gel is dual-action: it eliminates dead cells and impurities and helps protect the skin’s natural hydrolipidic film thanks to its plant-based emollient ingredients. Its unique gel texture instantly melts into an oil upon contact with the skin and then transforms into a milk upon contact with water, allowing it to be easily rinsed off.

  • Is the Melting Exfoliating Facial Gel recommended for sensitive skin?

    Yes, our Melting Exfoliating Facial Gel is formulated to be kind to facial skin and is tested on sensitive skin.

  • What is the difference between Pure Skincare and Pure Actives?

    Pure Skincare products do not contain any active ingredients, to take care of skin every day, without needlessly irritating it. Pure Actives offer a targeted action to treat skin problems when necessary (1 Pure Active = 1 skin issue). Healthy skin with no particular issues does not need Pure Actives.

  • How can Pure Skincare products be effective without any active ingredients?

    They are specifically formulated to give healthy skin with no particular issues what it needs, to cleanse and moisturise it while preserving its natural mechanisms. Adding in active ingredients that the skin doesn’t need can damage it. Over 98% of the ingredients in our Pure Skincare products are biomimetic (global Biomimetic© patent), for perfect affinity with the skin.

  • Do your products contain fragrances?

    Our Pure Actives do not contain fragrances, nor do some of the other care products such as the Moisturising Eye Contour Fluid, the Melting Exfoliating Gel and the Express Purifying Mask. The majority of our Pure Skincare products are very lightly scented to make them pleasant to use while being kind to skin. We carefully select our fragrances, which we create ourselves, and make sure they are free from allergens and sensitising substances.

  • What makes Pure Skincare special?

    Pure Skincare products do not contain any active ingredients, to cleanse and moisturise the skin every day. The biomimetic formulation of all Pure Skincare products is in perfect affinity with the skin so as to strengthen the natural processes without overtreating. Healthy skin with no particular issues does not need superfluous active ingredients that risk irritating it.

  • Are your products tested on animals?

    No, in accordance with the applicable European cosmetics regulations, our products and the ingredients they contain are not tested on animals. Toxicology experts have evaluated our formulas’ perfect tolerance. And, of course, our products are tested under dermatological and ophthalmological supervision if necessary.

  • Do your products contain preservatives?

    In order to protect our formulas from contamination, we use the necessary amount of natural preservatives (black radish extract, potassium sorbate or capryloyl glycine). We also use airless bottles, pumps and tubes to limit the risk of contamination, and therefore the quantity of preservatives.
