Me, Body Délice and my French world

About

Who’s behind Body Délice?

Hi there! My name is Sophie, I’m French and after spending one year in Michigan, I live now in San Francisco bay in California.

When I’m not drinking a cup of tea, I’m making my own cosmetics. I have been created toothpastes, shampoos, deodorants, lotions, moisturizers and hair gel for more than five years. I love trying new recipes and I confess… my husband is my favorite guinea pig!
So, when we decided to come to live here in the US, I really wondered what I could do… until I realized that so many people were interested in my hobby !
That’s why I decided to get certified in making cold process soap and to launch my adventure of the American Dream (what a cliché, yes I know ^^) !!

Lyon,

Ville Lumière

I was born and raised in Lyon, the third largest city of France.
Also called “The City of Light“, Lyon is famous for its “Festival of Lights” on December 8th. In order to thank the Virgin Mary for saving the city from a deadly plague in the Middle Ages, we traditionally place candles at our windows sills on the evening of December 8th, and we enjoy light shows all over the city.
Lyon is also well known for its gastronomy : quenelle (fish dish formed into a egg-like shape), salade lyonnaise (lettuce, bacon, poached egg and croûtons), coq au vin (red wine rooster stew), andouillette and rosette (kind of sausages) and also some famous desserts such as marron glacé (chestnut candied), coussin de Lyon (tidbit with chocolate, honey, sugar, almonds and curaçao) and cervelles de canut (cheese with herbs, vinegar, salt, peper and olive oil).
Anyway, you get the idea, all the food is soooo good in Lyon! 🙂

 

 

Why

“Body Délice” ?

Through Body Délice, I wish to share my passion for soap and cosmetics. As far as I can remember, I have always had an interest in these products. When I was little, I used to buy my mother some bath oils, bath bombs, lovely soap or lavender moisturizers on Mother’s Day.
Taking delight in the smell, the shape, the softness at the touch and the sensations on your skin, can quickly become your favorite thing during your daily wellness break.
I admit it easily, I am an addict to this beauty routine which is now a special moment I am eager to grant myself almost everyday. A pure and simple happiness ! Seriously, what could be better than that?
That is exactly where the name Body Délice comes from : the Delight of the Body. So indulge yourself a wellness break to pamper yourself! You know you deserve it.

My Deepest Beliefs

You might know that France is famous all around the world for its cosmetics, haute-couture and gastronomy. The “Made in France” is like a guarantee label, a reliable witness of the art de vivre à la française
But I realized that many companies in France (but not only), don’t bother with ethical behaviors.
For example, many companies are not offering handcrafted and environmentally-responsible products as they claim. The quality of their products is even questionable and sometimes, the production process is disastrous…
So, through Body Délice, I wish to bring awareness. Because I want Body Délice to be a committed company in those causes:

No Chemicals

Creating good quality products does not require as many ingredients as the industrial products contain. Industrialists add many chemicals and synthetics, hazardous both for your health and the environment. It is true for cosmetics, food and clothes!

Environment

As you know, the environment is approaching a tipping point. Societies need urgently to stop massive consumption, planned obsolescence, the use of plastic, palm oil… And must experiment new trends such as “the zero waste”, local food, organic products…

Animal Welfare

Each living being is precious and worthy. We don’t need animal testings to wear mascara or take a medicine. We don’t need their fur to fight the cold or only be fashionable. We live in the XXI century and there are many innovative and alternative solutions today.
