The brand Noir Ô naturel® Cosmétiques was launched in February 2011, two years after the birth of the blog with the aim of offering a range of certified organic ethnic bio-cosmetics dedicated to black, mixed or Mediterranean women.
Noir Ô naturel®, more than a brand, is an eco-citizen beauty concept that celebrates natural beauty with an emphasis on ingredients from Afro-Caribbean biodiversity. This commitment is based on five pillars: the enhancement of natural black beauty, quality and know-how made in France, ecology, traceability and sustainability of our purchases and service.
Our starting postulate: black beauty is not always synonymous with naturalness and the proposed cosmetics are still too often derived from synthetic chemistry. The so-called "natural" ranges flourish but rarely offer the guarantees of safety and traceability to which every consumer is entitled.
The idea is to offer an alternative by enhancing the natural beauty of women of colour. This is how in turn our blog and our site have made recipes of home-made cosmetics available to our readers so that they can take care of their skin and their natural hair. We invite you to approach beauty in a natural way: be proud of your sapotille or ebony skin! Say no to money laundering! Say no to straightening on children!
We are committed to offering quality products. Each product has been designed to meet the requirements and specificities of black or mixed race women. Each of our formulas is subject to strict quality controls (quality of raw materials, safety tests, stability of components,...) guaranteeing optimal stability and tolerance of our cosmetics. We comply with the European cosmetics regulation (CE) N°1223 2009 by having a cosmetic file for all our formulas. The laboratories we work with comply with European Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP).
We have made the choice of zero unnecessary packaging of our products. This leads to a net reduction in waste and an impact on the weight of our lighter products, whose ecological footprint is improved at the transport station.
In addition, our containers are also environmentally friendly in recyclable materials and/or are themselves recyclable. They are subject to approval by the ECOCERT Greenlife certification body for Ecocert certified products. Our PEFC certified labels are produced by a Imprim'Vert certified printer.
Our range of organic cosmetics is certified by Ecocert or bears the mention Nature and Progress which guarantees that at least 95% of the ingredients contained in our products are of natural origin, and that at least 10% of the ingredients are from organic farming.
