Royal natural cosmetics made from plants of the Potager du Roi in Versailles


Two pharmacists, the first passionate about history and the second about cosmetics, once decided to revisit the beauty secrets of the Court of Versailles and produce a range of natural cosmetics, made in Versailles.

They spend one year walking the libraries: at first, they learnt to know historic pharmacopoeia, then they compiled old recipes taking in the atmosphere that reigned at the Court, to finally retain only those which could be reinterpreted, aligned with the current needs of the 21th-century cosmetics. 


Marie-Antoinette introduced the natural cosmetics, made from plants of the Versailles gardens. 

After a phase of research and development to deepen knowledge of the historic plants, how to grow them and how to safely extract components from natural  materials, the two foundershave chosen to work with the Potager du Roi, classified as a historic monument, which soil has been preserved from chemical fertilisers, pesticides and weedkillers. 

In partnership with the gardeners of Versailles and the Ecole Nationale Supérieure du Paysage, they have made contributions to reintroduce the historic plants in the Potager du Roi, to be cultivated in a traditional way.


Formulations are containing not less than 94% of natural ingredients, out of which a minimum of 90% are sourced in France. The glass and metal containers are 100% recyclable.
