Essential Oils packed with remarkable properties play a central role in Josiane Laure's beauty philosophy and serve as the foundation of the relationship between health and beauty.
Since they first began to be studied pharmacologically, they have continuously revealed their secrets little by little. Leading scientists claim that "some of them contain so many compounds yet to be discovered that even with all the chemists in the world they couldn't be synthesised - not even in a thousand years of work".
Essential oils are plant-based volatile, aromatic extracts obtained mainly through distillation.
Their complex composition lends them specific properties that can be used in a number of different cosmetic fields.
