Salut les filles!

We all know that the French ladies have a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’, and much of that is down to their beauty secrets.

Many tourists have cottoned on to this, and when they visit  Paris, they go through the shelves of the city’s wonderful pharmacies to uncover hidden beauty gems.

Although the best organic and natural beauty brands in France are indeed found in pharmacies, many are infiltrating mainstream beauty shops abroad, and debuting in niche chic boutiques, but you can buy many online now, too.

Here, I’ve curated my top 10 niche eco-beauty picks.  None of these brands is never tested on animals, of course, and they are all  certified organic, and have won an award of some kind. So now, let me give you the lowdown, from Absolution to Zao, on the French beauty brands I love!

1.  Absolution

This “creative apothecary” brand allows skincare enthusiasts to select a bespoke regimen.  Their “made to measure” concept offers various crèmes and serums for you mix up yourself, based on your individual skincare needs. Each product contains a unique blend of organic ingredients – there’s something for everyone, no matter what their skincare issues may be. Absolution’s minimalist-style white bottles are housed in artistically designed black and white recyclable boxes, created with eco-friendly vegetable ink too.  Being a socially conscious brand, 2% from every product purchased is donated to CARE France, a non-profit dedicated to fighting worldwide poverty.

2.  Bio Beaute

Organic fruits are not only touted as being healthier to eat, but they are also nature’s beauty treatment for healthy glowing skin.  A sister line created by the popular French skincare brand NUXE, Bio-Beaute, is an organic skincare and cosmetics collection that is infused with active fruit extracts.  These juicy oils are derived from the pulp and pits of the fruit that are naturally rich in skin nourishing antioxidants.

3.  PHYT’S

A spa brand that has its own plant based beauty institutes worldwide, using their unique collection of botanical skincare and cosmetics.  PHYT’S concept of “beauty is synonymous with pleasure” is reflected in their holistic approach to balancing beauty with health. Although not all their products are organic, the brand always advocates biodiversity by only using sustainable botanical ingredients where the ecosystem will never be compromised.

4.  Studio 78 Paris  

This eco-chic beauty brand offers a sleek collection of pretty cosmetics.  Each one is assigned an inspirational slogan, in place of the product and hue name – for example, they have an eyeshadow called “We Breathe”.  A vegan-friendly brand that only uses  natural mineral pigments derived from vegetables and minerals, Studio 78 offers a natural and ecological make-up range, for protecting the skin and respecting the environment.

5. Patyka Paris

A Parisian beauty house with Hungarian roots, Patyka means “apothecary” in Hungarian. It boasts two innovative product lines: “Absolis,” the holistic sophisticated range of daily beauty care products dedicated to enhancing the wellbeing (including indulgent body washes), and “Biokaliftin,” the exclusive range with an ultra high concentration of active organic substances and botanical extracts to help women age gracefully. These naturally-scented products will definitely create an escape from reality.

6.  Melvita

Beekeeping led to the creation of this sweet brand.  Based in the Ardèche region of France, their first product was an iconic hexagonal soap made with honey from their beehives.  But honey isn’t the only bit of natural goodness found in their expansive skincare collection – the label grows many of their own organic ingredients. In fact, the Melvita Foundation was established  for their commitment to  protect nature, the bees, and their ecosystem through the promotion of organic farming initiatives.

7.  UNE Natural Beauty

This back to beauty basics collection offers neutral-hued cosmetics designed to enhance the natural beauty of every fabulous skin tone.  This is one of the few organic beauty brands that offers a comprehensive collection of lipsticks to compliment every natural lip-tone hue. It’s classically minimal in its packaging and vegan-friendly too. Celebrate your individual beauty with UNE!

8.  ZAO Makeup

Respect for nature inspired this sustainable brand.  The name is derived from a combination of “Zen” and “Tao” – Asian philosophies that are connected to respecting nature.  Zao is a sustainable cosmetic brand due to their refillable packaging concept where once your product has hit pan, you can replace it with a new hue if you desire.  The package that houses each cosmetic is made from eco-friendly sustainable bamboo, a concept that was inspired by a bamboo pen and pencil set gifted by the founder’s friend.  The youthful brand offers trendy hues created from organic ingredients to appeal to women of every skin tone.

    Great article! I am in the UK but exclusively buy French organic brands, they are the best, I guess it’s because their super strict health regulations. The latest amazing ones I found for skin and hair care are Ashana.B Paris (high-end vegan and cruelty-free !) and Gaya (organic soaps).

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
