Who are we ?
My name is Mélanie Philibert and I was born in 1975. Since 2008 I dedicate my life to the recognition of a new cosmetic, healthier and reasoned.
Trained as a cosmetic formulator, I am passionate about finding solutions for distressed skin. Personally concerned, in turn prone to acne and rosacea, I want to offer to my skin only truly natural, well-thought and authentic skincare for several reasons:
- NATURAL: because I read one day a study that said that 75% of what we put on our skin goes into the blood. I also had a live experience with a skincare which after applying on my arm I could taste it in my mouth. Since this observation it is impossible for me to think about applying on my skin an ingredient without thinking about the consequences on my health. That's why I thoroughly read the labels of all cosmetics and invite everyone to do it. I always say that only the list of ingredients tells the truth about the quality of a cosmetic.
- WELL THOUGHT: I am convinced, by my personal and professional experience, that our skin should be left alone as much as possible so as to reach its full potential and that the frenzy of consumption in our world today goes against this respect.
There are still too few cosmetics that offer combined simplicity and pleasure of use, total transparency of formulas, practicality and multiplicity. I wanted to offer a short, multifunctional and practical offer for the whole family.
- AUTHENTIC: the origin of the ingredients, the quality of the relations with the partners with whom we work, the reasonableness of the project and the wish to push natural cosmetics forwards are the 4 fundamental values hidden behind De Vermalle.
With the help of my husband, Jean-Yves Vellino, who did all the graphic work around the range (product labels, website ...), we belong to this self-taught and voluntary generation who works tirelessly with passion to promote noble products in which we believe in.
We are also very keen to meet the demands of beauty professionals, beauticians and masseuses. They have very little choice in 100% natural cosmetics. To these professionals who are very exposed to cosmetics and who are developing more and more occupational diseases related to the use of problematic ingredients in cosmetics, we offer larger formats of all our skincare so that they may safely keep working.
With De Vermalle a real alternative is possible!
