This spring, I was invited to discover the spirit and the products of the Cap-Ferret laboratories. It’s a couple of pharmacy doctors who created the brand, high-end and organic, from scratch and launched its products after years of research and development.
Madame was a pharmacist and studies and tests dermo-cosmetic ranges. Formulas and ingredients hold no secrets for her. Mr. led a consulting group for the pharmaceutical and para-pharmaceutical industries and developed a solid expertise on the safety of health products and cosmetics. Both are committed to creating products with care for possible medium or long term effects.
The Cap-Ferret laboratories thus put forward three words: efficiency, safety and fun. Their products use exclusively natural ingredients, from plants and the marine, their cosmetics are certified organic, Ecocert and Cosmebio. 100% of the ingredients used are natural and traceable. Many of them are local. No cosmetic care is subject to animal testing.
The range already includes several products:
- La superbe, an anti-aging face cream
- The luminous, anti-aging face serum
- Luscious, a body cream
- The sublime, a body, face and hair oil
- The exfoliant, a triple action body scrub, which includes grains of oyster shells!
The brand offered us the bright and the superb so that we can discover them and tell you about it. For a long time allergic to perfume, even when it evokes the Atlantic, I have not been able to use them myself more than once. So the gentleman took the tests!
The superb, anti-aging cream
La superbe is a daily facial treatment which combines the anti-wrinkle, hydrating, plumping and smoothing properties of 17 plant-marine active ingredients. It promises plumped, smoothed and luminous skin, which regains vitality and freshness over time. It can be used morning and evening, on normal to dry skin – mine is mixed, that of Mister rather normal – and including sensitive. It can be applied after the serum. Marketed since June 1, 2018, it is sold for € 75 for 50 ml.
Monsieur started to discover “La superbe” skincare during a seaside vacation, morning and evening. He found the cream very pleasant to use, particularly moisturizing, without leaving the skin oily. He told me that the scent of the cream had very pleasant summer accents. He feared at the start that the perfume might be a little too present – when the jar opened, it was impossible not to notice – but it faded fairly quickly. He alternates it with his usual cream.
Bright, anti-aging serum
The bright is a daily facial treatment and, more specifically, an anti-aging serum. It combines anti-wrinkle, moisturizing, nourishing and regenerating properties and numerous extracts of algae and plants. It is an oily serum, which is intended to be light and non-greasy and is particularly intended for skins devitalized or damaged by the sun. It promises to reduce wrinkles and fine lines. The light can be used morning and evening. Marketed since June 1, 2018, it is sold for € 39 for 15 ml.
I tested the serum once to get my own idea of the product but it was not suitable for my profile: so I gave it to Mister. The product is not very fragrant, less than La Superbe cream. But my allergic profile unfortunately doesn’t let anything go by, so I sneezed and had a bit of a headache. It is not related to the product but to my intolerance. I saw an obstacle to continue the test. The texture of the serum is an oil, even if it remains light. It remains on the surface of the skin for a short time and seems very hydrating. There is no immediate need to add a cream. It disturbs me a little because I still have combination skin and fight against blemishes. It is therefore better that I still turn to specific products.
Monsieur tested the oil before the cream and without the cream. Although the treatments are complementary, he enjoyed using them separatelyt. One to two drops are enough to rehydrate the skin after your evening shower. This does not prevent him from completing the application with a cream treatment at bedtime. He used the oil during our vacation and plans to use it gradually because he keeps a preference for the texture of the cream. This does not detract from the fact that he is happy to discover these products, that he is sure to finish.
Products Cap-Ferret laboratories are available on the brand’s website and in pharmacies.
