Thyme after Thyme

We do not talk so much about it but thyme is very present in our cosmetics products, particularly in our body balm “Body bôm” which is made of 100% organic ingredients.

The Thyme essential oil we use is wild picked around Crillon le Brave in Lubéron, Provence at the bottom of Mont Ventoux by Manuel Larraux from “La table des Lutins”.

This essential oil is certified in Nature and Progress which is by far the most stringent label in terms of organic farming.

The virtues of Thyme are extremely numerous and effective. The essential oil of Thyme is a tonic, a great disinfectant and healing (used in honey in some clinics to facilitate healing), a powerful antibacterial that stimulates the immune system and tones the whole body.

Do not hesitate to contact and support Manuel who also makes herbal juices, exquisite jams and who will be happy to share with you all his passion and knowledge:

Portrait of our favorite beekeeper

Do you like honey? Well me too, but not just any honey you see … When you have the chance to be born in Provence, there is only one honey that is worth it and it is … Lavender honey

It is nicknamed the gold of Provence and there is an obvious reason for this:
its golden color

But Lavender honey also has a succulent and sweet taste, a creamy texture and benefits recognized for thousands of years now.

Indeed Lavender honey is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and soothes, regenerates cells and the immune system. It is for all these reasons that we use the lavender honey in Comette cosmetics products including the Coco Loco facial scrub!
Our beekeeper Damien is a shy guy who communicates much better with his bees than with humans! He is passionate about nature, the well-being of his protected beings, constantly looking for healthier, more remote places to create the purest and most concentrated product.

his filtering methods make honey highly concentrated in propolis and that’s the detail that makes all the difference.
Propolis is a magic ingredient as it has many benefits:
cell regenerator

These beautiful photos were of course taken by Damien our beekeeper who has many talents including the one of photography; especially when the model has a pair of wings and yellow and black stripes !!!
Feel free to contact us for information from our favorite beekeeper and support him by buying his honey.
The cause of bees is primordial then let’s act together to all benefit from their millennial experience …

See you soon,

A few years back or how everything started…

A few years back or how everything started…

Comette cosmetics was not created in a day, but what has been done in one day you’d tell me!? I have always been a “country side” kind of girl although I am just beginning to understand the deeper meaning of these words! I never imagined making cosmetics or simply exercising a job related to plants, nature and even more a job combining chemistry and very specific knowledge.

My Physics teacher would have certainly not believed you! I should probably give him a call! Many years later, here I am, 29, a woman entrepreneur and owner of my cosmetic company, offering a range of 100% natural cosmetics, that I create in my laboratory in Provence France.

Let’s start by explaining why and how. First of all, I have always been passionate. An enthusiast of everything, theater, art, music, flowers, cooking, dancing, stars, reading, travelling, long story short, nothing bores me except perhaps the fact of literally being bored by doing nothing but that’s not even sure.

From this excessive curious nature and from not being able to hold still, after I graduaded business school, I decided to go to South America for several months. I fell in love with this continent and my curiosity being greater than me, I continued to travel for years to Australia, the United States, India …

During all these trips I met thousands of human beings, discovered dozens of cultures, rituals, beliefs and especially ways of living and seeing life.

An important event that I will reveal on an other article, pushed me to think about the impact and especially the mark that I will leave on this Earth, so precious, so marvelous, and after reflection I decided to minimize my impact and do everything to leave a mark that could make a difference.


That’s when Comette was born …

Here is this first article of a long list, dedicated to those who would like to know a little better the person who is behind Comette cosmetics and who are also curious to the core.

In this blog, you’ll find portraits of thelocal farmers I work with, but also tips, recipes, behind the scenes photos, videos and the progress of Comette cosmetics life and her creator. Finally, a free space of comments and questions that I will try to always answer my best.

See you soon,
