NATURAL SKINCARE

Why natural means better?

Since the end of WWII, the release of chemical molecules into the environment has risen drastically. Many of these toxic molecules find their way into the body through the various products that people use daily, including skincare and household products. Many of these chemicals are carcinogens and neurotoxins.

Skin is our largest organ and performs various vital functions such as protecting internal organs and regulating temperature. It is the first line of defense against the environment.

Our skin is an extremely absorbent structure; therefore, environmental toxins impact it directly. In fact, our skin can act as a transporter for toxins allowing them to penetrate directly into the bloodstream.

French Secret® uses only the highest quality ingredients, natural, botanicals extracts and quality essential oils, to promote results and wellbeing.


French Secret®: a skincare line based on Beljanski’s philosophy

Chemicals may have the effect of destabilizing our DNA and damaging our cells, thus causing harm. For example, parabens (methyl, ethyl, propyl, butyl) are used in the vast majority of cosmetic products as synthetic preservatives and are suspected to be endocrine disruptors.1,2,3
Dr. Mirko Beljanski, renowned molecular biologist, was the first to show how chemicals in our environment may affect our DNA and induce irreversible changes at the cellular level.4,5,6,7,8,9 Inspired by his extensive body of research, French Secret® will help you AVOID environmental toxins to the fullest possible extent.

French Secret® products are FREE of parabens and other synthetic preservatives.


Natural Skincare in sustainable packaging

French Secret® products are packaged in glass jars to avoid any contamination with plastic molecules. Chemical compounds such as Bisphenol A (BPA) included in many plastic packages may transfer to fatty ingredients such as essential oils.

Clear glass can break down photosensitive compounds, that is why French Secret® uses dark glass containers to protect the essential oils.

Because it is sustainable, in a world full of toxic threats, glass is the responsible choice to help protect both your health and the environment.


Your skin will thank you™
