Poudre Moussante Iridescente – Iridescent Foaming Powder
With a mere playful gesture, this powder instantaneously transforms into a foaming cleansing cream with blue reflections when it comes in contact with water.
Once it has been applied on the face, the skin becomes soft and smooth.
Instructions for use:
• Pour the equivalent of a spoonful of iridescent foaming powder in the hollow of your hand
• Add one spoonful and a half of water on the powder
• Massage in the hollow of your hand and apply the light, foamy cream on your humid face, then rinse off
This innovative anhydrous formula contains 92.7% natural ingredients under standard ISO 16128. Environmentally friendly, it limits water consumption and helps reduce the packaging size and get rid of preservatives.
This concept is based on the swelling power of VIVASTAR CS Instant Powder and on the unctuosity and softness of VITACEL CS 20 FC. The formula is convenient and both simple in its composition and original in its behaviour.

As a real visual expression of natural, Calendula petals bring life to this lotion through movement and colour, highlighting the ingredient in the formulation.
The yellow shade of the petals is explained by the presence of 18 carotenoids.
The lotion is formulated to solubilize certain carotenoids in just a few days after packaging, and then guarantee stability over time.
Valued by sensitive skins, calendula expresses all its richness with its soothing, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory properties.
 100% natural and COSMOS-certified, the petals contained in this lotion were meticulously selected to guarantee the highest level of purity, in accordance with specifications established in partnership with farmers right from the planting phase:
• Dedicated harvesting
• Flower handpicking
• Gentle drying immediately after harvesting
• Petals delicately separated from flower
• Screening
• Petals meticulously sorted out
• Thermal debacterization
• Whole packed in a lotion (the dosage and packaging of petals in a bottle required developing a innovative, tailor-made industrial process)

Let us surprise you with this revisited foam that awakens the senses: sight with a floaty foam, hearing with the crackling on the finger, the wrapping touch of the foam when it is applied on the skin, and smell with its sweet perfume.
Comforting for dry to very dry skins, Mousse-en-Baume ( Foam-in-Balm ) wraps the skin in a soft, wellness cocoon. As soon as it has been applied, the feat of its texture is revealed on your fingers: the foam turns into a balm on the skin, and then literally melts during the massage to provide optimum comfort and a second-skin effect.
The main technical challenge of this formula is to get an emulsion mixed with homogeneous bubbles and maintain their appearance over time with a constraint of 10 INCI ingredients.
The air bubbles are confined thanks to the rigid lamellar network created by our senso-active BiophilicTM H emulsifier.
BiophilicTM H accounts for 4% of the formula. It is enough to emulsify 30% of oily phase, including 25% butter to provide a generous texture with a gentle finish and offer a sense of peace and comfort.

Replenishing Oil Pearls Elixir for Damaged Hair
What is better than pearls to beautify your hair?
This oil-based serum free from silicone is intended for dry, damaged hair.
A few drops of this complex of vegetable oils rigorously selected for their nourishing properties instantaneously revive the hair suppleness, softness, and shininess without any oily effect.
The presence of an Acrylates/C10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer in very low quantity makes it possible to suspend a hundred oil droplets in an aqueous liquid gel and provides the macro-emulsion with its astonishing visual aspect.
This new stabilizer significantly contributes to simplifying the manufacturing process thanks to a very fast dispersion in water.
Made under cold temperatures and low stirring speed, the formula consumes little energy.
Unique visual + instantaneous effect + accessible formula = radiant hair.
