Creator of Botanical Beauty ®

Botanical Passion

It was in La Gacilly, at the heart of his native Brittany in France, that Yves Rocher’s passion for the plant world was born.  Pioneering Botanist, he developed his plant-based beauty products in the attic of his family home, which then became his laboratory. He invented a new form of beauty, with the highest respect for Women and Nature. He chose to create and develop his company in his village. 

A unique business model
As a Botanist, Harvester, Manufacturer and Retailer, the Yves Rocher Brand is the only global cosmetics Brand to control the entire life cycle of its products: from the plant to the skin of its 30 millions clients. This specificity allows the Yves Rocher Brand to lower its environmental impact and offer every woman quality products at an accessible price. 
Each botanical has a genius
All botanicals do not have the same powers. They have different specialties and talents. That is their Genius.
To live, survive and regenerate itself, a botanical develops a treasure trove of ingenuity. It adapts. 
To transfer this power to the skin, Botanical Beauty can decipher the Genius in each plant that it studies. 
A unique chain of experts since 1959
The power of plants is infinite and the field of research of our Experts is limitless.
They explore the Genius of plants and use its diversity to find an answer to the skin’s every need. 
They discover new botanical actives and develop exclusive ingredients to optimize the Assimilation of the Botanical ingredients by the skin. They create innovative products that are beneficial for the skin.
