A way of using beauty differently
The Slow Cosmétique movement and the association by the same name were created in 2012 by the Belgian aromatherapist and cosmetician Julien Kaibeck, author of several books on natural beauty and the blog Lessentieldejulien.com.
Today, Slow Cosmétique is a consumer movement carrying out actions in various countries to raise public awareness and take the right steps for a more natural and simple beauty.
Slow Cosmétique is an eco-friendly and ethical approach based on a widespread will to promote a natural, healthy and simple way of using cosmetics.
" We are a Movement striving for responsible natural skincare. The current ecological and psychological impact of cosmetics weighs heavy on the planet, for our finances and our state of mind. Faced with this observation, some people say that alternative cosmetics is possible. "
