THE DOUCES ANGEVINES BRAND HISTORY
Michel Cros initially read literature but then decided to increase her knowledge about the medicinal and aromatic plants which reminded her of her childhood at her grandparents in the South of France.
Fascinated by all this new knowledge she wanted to share a concrete way, she began to realize her own beauty recipes for personal use and for her family. Testing whenever new plants, refining each of her formulas... Due to the success and the growing effectiveness of her elixirs, the idea of selling them came naturally.
She then gather with other beauty professional women and this is in 1994, in the heart of Anjou, Soucelles in one of the villages of the famous "Douceur Angevine" of Joachim du Bellay, that Michèle Cros creates Douces Angevines a true pioneer brand of organic cosmetics.
Inspired by the tradition of the "good women" - in the France of the Middle Ages, these women believed in the power of plants and were herbalists, healers, midwives, and finally some kind of witches ... Michèle Cros wished to place her brand Douces Angevines in this tradition of ancestral knowledge and craftsmanship.
So she began by creating her garden of organic beauty, a living and poetic herbarium, where plants flourish naturally and are picked according to the seasons and the lunar cycles to capture the essence of their power.
