The Cosmétique en Provence laboratories are located in the heart of the Alpes de Haute-Provence, on the extraordinary plateau of Valensole.

This is where Cosmétique en Provence designs, manufactures and sells its cosmetic products to professionals.

Cosmétique en Provence is a French SME, a subsidiary of the brand house Du Monde à la Provence. It was born from the merger of two Provençal laboratories and their installation in the Valensole workshop in 2006.

For two decades, CEP has been developing product formulations for its customers that make them successful in limited series, from a few hundred to several tens of thousands of items.

The expertise of Cosmétique en Provence can be summed up in two words: quality and ingenuity.

Cosmétique en Provence has been able to provide its customers with absolutely unique know-how dedicated to their satisfaction. It is a question of collecting, sourcing and assembling all the components which make it possible to manufacture products whose function (hygiene or beauty) and galenic (appearance, perfume, viscosity) have been determined by the customer and the Laboratory. The ingenuity of our R&D graduates and our Manufacturing experience allow Cosmétique en Provence to stay at the forefront of market trends. The laboratory was among the first to use organic or natural ingredients such as donkey’s milk or goat’s milk, in addition to more traditional ingredients such as lavender, honey, almonds and aloe vera.

The Quality and Traceability requirements are total. Our packaging items are also the subject of great attention and astonishing progress in eliminating plastic, using recycled, recyclable and reusable materials. Vials, tubes, caps, pumps, labels, packaging, boxes, each item is reviewed in order to anticipate the CSR of tomorrow’s world.

Although the factory is semi-automated, some delicate tasks remain manual to ensure the best service, perfectly adapted to the requirements of our customers.

Cosmétique en Provence thus combines the most advanced aspects of the NF-EN ISO 22716 standard – Good Manufacturing Practices with historical local cosmetic know-how “Made in France”.
