Graine de Pastel, an ancestral know-how in Paris

At Graine de Pastel, we like to demonstrate the benefits of a plant: woad (or ‘pastel’). If you thought it was a simple color, you’re wrong because you’re likely to add it to your beauty routine.

Organic cosmetics is something we’re always on the look for. And at Graine de Pastel, the least we can say is that you are served right. This store is located in the heart of Paris Marais neighborhood and has become one of the leading addresses in this chic and trendy area. In addition to its showy blue front window, it attracts connoisseurs for its defining feature. And yes, if you don’t understand French, Graine de Pastel actually means woad seed and the store is specialized in beauty products based on… woad also known as 'pastel'!

Why? Well because this beauty secret has been forgotten for way too long whilst still being part of French heritage. Woad deserves to be known. It is said to have healing properties and its proteins would be very useful in anti-aging products.

Graine de Pastel, un savoir-faire ancestral

We better understand why Graine de Pastel chose to use this plant as the main ingredient. And to guarantee 100% effective beauty products, all rubbish ingredients are banned. Say goodbye to paraben, silicone and phenoxyethanol. Goodbye and good riddance! Here we talk about organic and ecofriendly products that are also made in France.

What do we have in the end? Well, a whole range of beauty products to freshen up from head to toes! Face and body care, home products, it’s time to hit the woad! The small bonus? The neutral scent of these ranges allows men to enjoy them as well.

To help you choosing, we advise you the body scrub based on woad oil that will allow you to smoothly start your beauty routine. We also like the connoisseurs’ oils that deeply moisturize the skin without the forgetting face and body balms.
