SAFETY & EFFICIENCY
COMMITMENT TO EFFECTIVENESS
Since its creation, Puressentiel has carried out more than 500 studies and efficacy and tolerance tests on all its products, plus more than 3,500 analyses and development tests in collaboration with hospital doctors, researchers, and independent laboratories. Puressentiel also relies on its Advisory Board*, a scientific committee made up of multi-disciplinary experts (doctors, pharmacists, hospital or general practitioners) who share the latest advances in medical and scientific research with us and assist us in the formulation of our products.
As a result, the Puressentiel range is recommended by general practitioners and specialists and is also listed in pharmacies and health establishments.
COMPLIANCE WITH THE STRICTEST REGULATIONS
Puressentiel has adopted the rule "Primum non nocere", “First do no harm” in English, a pillar of the oath made by Hippocrates, the famous Greek physician and an outstanding figure in the history of medicine.
Our finished products are subject to a precise scientific safety assessment justifying their uses, methods and precautions of use, as well as their claims according to their regulatory status.
Our products are marketed all over the world and we have opted to comply with the strictest regulations.
We are proud of our work and the best reward we can have is the satisfaction rate displayed by our consumers. We have a 99%* satisfaction rate from users across our entire range, and an awareness rate of 82%!
In June 2021, Puressentiel France was ranked as the 2nd most virtuous company in the Beauty/Wellness sector in an independent Advent** survey. A true recognition of our social and environmental contribution!
In March 2020, Puressentiel France was proud to be named in the top 5 voluntary brands among its users with a score of 87 on the Bénévolence® Index - a survey set up by the Change Agency with the BVA Institute. Carried out with 300 brands and 5000 French people, it analyses the criteria of empathy, usefulness, and responsibility of brands. It takes into account the brand's commitment to the environment, but also to its employees and citizens.
*98.96% satisfaction rate out of 38,300 testimonials, as of 30 June 2020.
**Survey conducted on a representative sample of 1,004 French people, on a set of 28 social and environmental criteria
USE WITH CONFIDENCE
Essential oils are powerful natural concentrates. The safety of Puressentiel products has been continually assessed since their formulation. Our products are regularly monitored by our team in charge of vigilance, in conjunction with our partner pharmacists.
Legislation also imposes certain warnings on us which we respect. This is why some of our products include indications on their packaging such as not being recommended for use by pregnant women or young children. You can therefore use our products with confidence by referring to the instructions for use (including methods of use, dosages, duration and precautions for use) indicated on the packaging and on our website. Furthermore, we always favour the precautionary principle when current data does not allow for a scientifically supported evaluation.
PICTOGRAMS ON OUR LABELS
The presence of pictograms on the packaging of some of our products is linked to the application of the European CLP Regulation (Classification, Labelling, Packaging) on the classification, labelling and packaging of substances and mixtures. This labelling has several uses, including assisting Poison Control Centres to deal with a person who has suffered an adverse reaction to a product, particularly in the event of misuse.
An endocrine disruptor is defined by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as a molecule that mimics, blocks or modifies the action of a hormone and causes a harmful effect on the body.
Many plant foods have real endocrine activity, but do not have harmful effects. They belong to the world of "SASE" (Substances Active on an Endocrine System).
Foods which are active, but without harmful effects include soya, hops, most cereals, broccoli, cabbage and nuts. Some essential oils, such as lavender or tea tree, are also in this category and are therefore criticised by some.
Essential oils are not endocrine disruptors. They can cause slight endocrine activity, but it is proven to be much lower than that of soya, and they have no harmful effects on the body when used.
