“My eyesight was to make one thing attractive and sustainable” Nicolas Gerlier, President and Founder of La Bouche Rouge tells Good day! Trend on his most current go to to London. He’s definitely succeeded at equally.
La Bouche Rouge is intriguing in that it’s 1 of the only fully sustainable magnificence brands that doesn’t search at all like a sustainable attractiveness brand ‘should.’ With a distinctly large-stop (and not one particular bit hippy or woo-woo) aesthetic, it is luxurious via and by way of which is in all probability 1 of the factors why you in all probability hadn’t even realise it is one of the most ‘net zero’ organizations in the house.
In October 2016, La Bouche Rouge became the initial French, plastic-totally free splendor brand to present a clean up make-up line in handmade, refillable situations. “The strategy was genuinely to create the initial makeup line without having plastic, and we did it,” Nicolas says, “The concept is to fight squander. There were being 1 billion men and women on the planet 100 in the past, there are eight billion of us today… We are unable to take in like the earlier technology.”
“If you have something significant finish and sustainable, you are building the foreseeable future,” Nicolas tells us, “the mission of luxury is to elevate our daily everyday living, to elevate our way of use. Mainly because it can be a new solution, it really is really special what we are executing, but I’m confident in 5 a long time It really is likely to be popular simply because we have no alternative. We simply cannot proceed to generate plastic points.”
Now Nicolas is having what he’s applied to lipsticks and employing it to craft their initially fragrances. “We have invented a new approach of magnificence with craftsmanship. We have eradicated plastic from A to Z, such as packaging, provide chain, and formulation. It is a new approach to refill mainly because the refill is 100% recyclable.” You’ve most likely heard of the adage ‘Buy once use permanently,’ but now ‘buy when, refill forever’ is the concept at the rear of La Bouche Rouge’s refillable perfume bottles.
The consequence of Nicolas’ endeavours is a handmade ‘objet.’ The perfume arrives in 5 fragrances and stands in 100ml refillable bottle topped with a twist off spray. La Bouche Rouge even requested its glassmaker to abandon their present behaviors in the pursuit of sustainability, “The bottle is the initially glass bottle produced without waste,” confirms Nicolas.
In conventional manufacturing, a 3rd of all bottles are rejected for small imperfections in the outer glass or shape of the inner drop. La Bouche Rouge is placing a cease to this apply. Like its signature lipsticks the glass bottle is enveloped in a hand-crafted leather-based from the prestigious Tanneries de Puy. The authentic coup de grace on the other hand is the Insta-worthy aluminium refill. La Bouche Rouge has certainly, “invented the very first one-content refill,” clarifies Nicolas. Once again plastic-cost-free and boasting the signature LBR aesthetic, you merely pour the contents into your bottle and spritz.
“I do not imagine in refill if you do not have a important object, and I do not believe in refill if you do not have a recyclable refill,” points out Nicolas.
