If you are thinking of changing your skincare products to organic products of 100% natural origin, we’d like to recommend the PHYT’S range and in particular, the following three products – a cleanser, moisturiser and deodorant – to get you started.

Lait Hydro Nettoyant is a light and easy-to-use cleansing cream for all skin types, particularly useful for very sensitive skin as it cools on contact with the skin.

PHYT’S Crème Hydra Riche: Hydrating Moisturiser for Dry Skin *Winter Skin Saviour*


The Aqua Line from PHYT’S is all Hyaluronic Acid based from plants. Hyaluronic Acid is a carbohydrate that naturally occurs within our own interstitial fluid and its job is to hold water which supports our connective tissue and joints. Like everything, it diminishes with age so PHYT’S use vegetal extracts of HA to soften, plump and rehydrate the skin: it really is a wonder ingredient for our skin! The Hydra Riche is the richest cream of the three moisturisers in the Aqua Line so it is best for dry, dehydrated and sensitive skin. It is a protective cream that shields external aggressors from the skin and feeds the skin vital elements while restoring water content, softening and plumping. The skin is conditioned and protected.


Ingredients: Water, Palm oil* (fair trade, sustainable farming, organic – not a habitat to animals), Vegetal glycerine, olus oil (blend of natural triglycerides from plants), parfum (natural fragrance), betaine (amino acid), propanediol (from fermentation of plants, hydrating), Sunflower seed oil*, cetearyl alcohol (a viscous plant alcohol to emulsify water and oil), Cera alba*(Beeswax, fair trade and organically farmed), jojoba esters, arachidyl alcohol (waxy plant alcohol for skin softening), cetearyl glucoside (fat from coconut to emulsify), xylitol glucoside (plant sugar for hydration), anhydroxylitol (plant sugar to lock in moisture, a barrier), sunflower seed wax, glycerol caprylate (from vegetal glycerine to soften the skin), Shea butter*, Sweet almond oil*, Hyaluronic Acid, Tocopherol (Vitamin E from vegetable oils), behenyl alcohol (fatty plant alcohol to thicken), aracchidyl glucoside (fatty plant alcohol to thicken), silica, xylitylglucoside, acacia decurrens flower wax, polyglycerin-3 (fatty acid to soften), xanthan gum, lactic acid (softening, from plant sugars), and ingredients present in oils: citronellol, linalool (molecules that make up essential oils and naturally fragrance the product)
