ANCESTRAL EXPERTISE

Back in the 1960s, Marion Delbôve was inspired by pharmacopoeias and herbalism books in developing her formulas; an ardent believer in the acknowledged power of medicinal plants in healing and skincare through the centuries. Today, we remain true to her legacy, and continue to use medicinal plants and techniques with a proven track record in phytotherapy. In 2018, we celebrated 50 years of natural, vegan, animal cruelty-free skincare products.

HIGH CONCENTRATION

Each Delbôve product is made from a combination of medicinal plants recommended for treating a specific problem. Each product is packed full of different plants, with active ingredients accounting for a very high percentage of the overall formula. In comparison to standard creams, our formulas have a very low water content.

EFFICIENT FORMULAS

Combining the natural powers of medicinal plants and rigorously applied scientific expertise, Delbôve uses mother tinctures to retain a maximum of therapeutic properties in its unique formulas. These natural plant extracts have a proven capacity to get to work under the surface of the skin, offering targeted action for issues related to sensitivity and cutaneous ageing. These exceptional ingredients result in spectacular transformations that our customers notice in their skin over time.

NATURAL - AND ALIVE!

The sheer diversity and wealth of the natural world are central to Delbôve's products. The natural cycle of the seasons means that botanical resources can differ depending on the time of year. As a result, your favourite products may vary in colour or appearance, but their effectiveness remains completely unaltered. Embrace it as a happy surprise, an uplifting reminder of the beauty of living nature, and proof that we don't try to iron out variations through artificial means!
