Our Know How
Our Know How
- Our products are inspired by the convent of Mane’s tradition of skin care and well-being through plants and follow age-old phytotherapy and aromatherapy practices.
-- We draw on this know-how to choose natural ingredients that best correspond to the action sought.
-- Our recipes combine these ingredients in different forms (oil, floral water, extract, essential oil, milk, kernel powder, etc.) in generous textures that are pleasant to use. We are particularly fond of vegetable oils produced using seeds or fruits and rich in nutrients, because they have a high natural affinity with the skin.
-- We do not use any animal products or by-products, apart from products from the hive (honey, royal jelly, beeswax, propolis).
- We strive to formulate quality products that do good and smell good, in complete safety.
-- Every Le Couvent des Minimes skin care product is tested under dermatological supervision.
-- We may, in certain cases, use synthetic molecules in order to offer a product with optimal safety and efficacy and if there is no reliable and effective natural alternative.
-- According to the precautionary principle, we revise our formulas when certain ingredients come under question with regard to health (parabens, chemical sunscreens, phthalates) or the environment (silicones, SLES) even if we are not obliged to do so by law.Nous nous efforçons dans le développement de nos emballages et de nos supports de communication de respecter au mieux l'environnement.
- We strive to be as environmentally friendly as possible when developing our packaging and communication supports.
-- We limit the use of unnecessary overpackaging.
-- Our packs and the cardboard used for our gift sets are derived from sustainably managed forests.
- We have never tested our products or their ingredients on animals and we ensure that our suppliers follow the same rules.
