The forest protector

Madagascar's primary forest is host to a well-kept secret, the "Protector of the Forest.”

The Harungana tree is an exceptional natural barrier protecting forest ecosystems from external aggressions, and even repairing them when damaged.

Our ethnobotanists work hand in hand with local communities to respectfully harvest Harungana leaves that are rich in active ingredients. These soothe the skin just as the Harungana tree protects the forest.

This is how we act to build close and long-term relationships with local communities.

The richness of biodiversity

Of the 13,000 species of macroalgae listed, only 50 are used in cosmetics today.

By cultivating rare and little-known species of macroalgae in the laboratory, our researchers are pursuing this precious, unexplored biodiversity. We have created the very first collection of isolated macroalgae cells that are each identified for their unique skin properties. We can multiply them anytime and ensure an industrial production without damaging the natural ecosystem.

This is how we engage in conscious innovation.

When wood becomes our inspiration

Water is a precious resource, a universal element of life that provides strength and vitality.

In 3.8 billion years of evolution, wood has developed a unique sugar complex to capture and keep this essential element within its core. Inspired by nature, we have created Xylishine™, a unique complex of sugars bio-inspired from wood, to provide relief for damaged hair. We design high-performance and proven-efficacy active ingredients for skin and hair care, along with inspiring stories and concepts.

This is how we serve each of our customers.
