French production 🇫🇷.
Alcédo favors French and/or European supply chains with, in the near future, the development of a network of producers committed to organic farming in the Grand Est region.
The laboratory is located in the heart of the Northern Vosges in Niederbronn-les-Bains where cosmetic products based on natural mineral water are designed and manufactured.
In addition to formulating products with water of great purity, low mineral content and therefore ideal for making skin-friendly cosmetic products, Alcédo works with noble raw materials exclusively from Organic Farming (oils vegetable oils, butters and essential oils for perfumes).
A handcrafted technique 🧼
Alcédo uses the cold saponification technique to manufacture its solid soaps and shampoos. This technique consists in heating oils and butters at a low temperature to preserve their properties while obtaining vegetable glycerin that is naturally moisturizing for the skin. This manufacturing process is very energy efficient and does not produce any harmful emissions for the environment.
Maud, craftsman and founder of Alcedo.
The creation of my company is the result of a professional retraining, starting in 2018 at the following an 8-month traveling trip in Central and South America. This change of course, I initiated it in Costa Rica, by participating in workshops for the manufacture of ecological cosmetics, but it was in France that I decided to train myself in cold saponification, perfumery and cosmetic regulations. .
A fan of travel, outdoor sports and involved in associations for many years, I wanted, through Alcedo, to undertake and develop an activity with a social and environmental impact on a territory rural that I particularly like.
My establishment is declared to the ANSM (National Agency for the Safety of Medicines and Health Products) and I work in compliance with Good Cosmetic Manufacturing Practices (GMP standards ISO 22716).
