We harness the therapeutic power of botanicals
In the 60s, Marion Delbôve took her inspiration from pharmacopea and ancient herbalists books. Marion's vision was to formulate with medicinal plants which had demonstrated to have contributed to the health and beauty of the skin over many centuries. As of today, we still use the medicinal plants and formulation techniques which have proven to be effective in phytotherapy. We celebrate 50 years of vegan and cruelty free skincare.
All our formulas are highly concentrated in active ingredients. Not only does Delbôve’s complex formulas contain a great number of medicinal plants, they are also present in high percentage within the overall formula. Each of our products is formulated around a combination of medicinal plants to treat a skin problem. Important to also know: our formulas use a very low percentage of water (compared to the conventional skincare).
Delbôve uses powerful medicinal plants drawn from nature and science within its unique formulas. Herbal tinctures extract the therapeutic properties of plants. Our herbal tinctures have proven their ability to work below the skin’s surface and target the issues of skin sensitivity and aging head on. These exceptional ingredients are why our customers achieve transformative results over time.
FORMULATING LIVING INGREDIENTS
At Delbôve, we embrace nature’s richness and diversity. As you know, botanical ingredients vary with Mother Nature’s changing seasons. This natural process can lead to variation in color and surface cracks in your favorite products but will not modify the efficiency of the formula. We see it as a happy surprise from living ingredients!
