A family history of French cosmetics

The history of Féret cosmetics is above all a family story:
a family that has been creating and manufacturing skincare products in France since 1878!

From the Féret brothers to Alexis, the story of two emblematic products

In 1878 the Féret brothers, Lucien and Roger, succeeded their father who since 1865 had been manufacturing:

The Hyaline Bloc

The Hyaline Bloc100% natural alum stone – won three medals at the 1900 Universal Exhibition in Paris.

Potassium alum stone, also called Kalunite, is the purest alum stone in the world. It is approved 100% of natural origin by Ecocert Cosmos Natural. It is visually recognizable by its marbled and somewhat transparent appearance, which qualitatively distinguishes it from synthetic alum stone with an opaque appearance.

First brand in the world registered in France and abroad, The Hyaline Bloc has often been imitated, never equalled. Moreover, a judgment dated November 10, 1899 already condemned counterfeiters of similar products.

The Hyaline Blocis still available today!

Hyalomiel - The Original

The Hyalomiel

The Hyalomiel is a transparent jelly with extracts of Garrigue honey and glycerin to moisturize and soothe the skin.

This product has become an essential part of daily care. It moisturizes and refreshes your hands, elbows, knees, heels…. A miracle recipe used by our grandmothers, Hyalomiel has been inimitable for over a century!

Féret Parfumeur has perpetuated the French Art-de-Vivre for several generations.

PORTRAIT : Alexis Cabanne, creator

French family brand – labeled Centennial Family Business – it is today Alexis Cabanne – great great grandson of the founder – who manages the company.

Alexis Cabanne - Manager Féret Parfumeur

Alexis is a child of the region where Cognac is produced. Thanks to the transmission of family knowledge, he educates his nose and his palate from father to son with this spirit.

With great aromatic richness, the cognacs explore a wide variety of floral, woody or even spicy notes. It is with rigor and precision that Alexis captivates and records the flavors of Cognac. He particularly likes the notes of lemon, orange, Iris, almond, jasmine, sandalwood and licorice.

Always in touch with smells and passionate about botany, Alexis also likes to vary the pleasures.

Balanced between past and modernity, Alexis Cabanne took up the torch in 2012 and continued to distribute original Féret Parfumeur products worldwide. He revitalized the family cosmetics brand by creating new natural ranges with scents of powdered rose, violet, lavender, rosemary… and created perfumes inspired by his gardens.

Buying Made In France, what is it?

  • either French ingredients thanks to the sourcing of suppliers to develop our products with a maximum of raw materials, components, or packaging of French origin.
  • or French know-how thanks to the manufacture of products on national territory. A French product meets regulated legislation and very strict health standards.
  • or both at the same time 😊 by interpreting Féret Parfumeur products.

A product made in France is also and above all a product acquired from quality know-how and skills from certified and labeled companies. A nice circle that encompasses diverse and virtuous processes for each other.

Why choosing Made In France has a positive impact?

French quality

The know-how of the French laboratories meets one of the most demanding regulations, to guarantee you formulas developed with the greatest care. Cosmetics have embodied inimitable French know-how for decades. By buying French, we offer ourselves excellence. This is why the partner laboratories with which we work are deployed in France.

Support for ecology

Our products do not travel thousands of kilometers from start to finish of their production chain. Féret Parfumeur has also chosen to work with local laboratories to promote short circuits and reduce the environmental impact of transport. The centralization of production (laboratories and suppliers) also makes it possible to reduce the energy expenditure of the production process.

Support for the French economy

Consuming “Made in France” products makes it possible to promote and support our national companies and their know-how.

Féret Parfumeur participates in maintaining or creating jobs in France. The brand supports a unique and highly qualified know-how recognized worldwide.

A guarantee of compliance with social standards

Buying in French is therefore making the choice of more responsible consumption and it is the guarantee that the product has been manufactured in good conditions and with respect for Human Rights.

Honey and its amazing cosmetic properties

While it is widely recognized in food, honey has amazing properties on skin and hair.
In general, honey is a product with multiple powers A beautiful program!

Honey to hydrate, nourish and soften the skin

The composition of honey includes many minerals and vitamins. And, if honey is so appreciated in cosmetics, it is above all for its moisturizing properties. By helping the skin to retain water and therefore maintain good hydration, it prevents skin dryness and dehydration.

As a rule, honey makes excellent balms or creams that our skin loves.

Honey: antioxidant

Derived from the nectar of flowers or plants, honey is extremely rich in polyphenols, known to be powerful antioxidants. By protecting our cells from oxidation, it regulates sebum and allows the skin to appreciate its purifying action. It is thus softer and clearer..

Honey is therefore a powerful protective treatment against certain inconveniences of daily life. This natural treatment can be used on all skin types and at all ages, but not just any!

Honey in cosmetics

Our beauty treatments are inspired by the remedies of our grandmothers and our innovative formulas are the result of months of development by our expert laboratories and French partners. Our honey is scrupulously selected for cosmetics.

As at its origins, Féret Parfumeur offers products 100% MADE IN FRANCE.
