We are a Northern France family group endowed with a strong industrial and international culture, while strongly attached to our roots.
A group successfully reconverted from textile industry to dermopharmacy and dermocosmetics, thanks to its constant will to innovate and strategic vision.

Today, as a member of the fifth generation of a family who ensured the continued existence of its Group and transmitted strong entrepreneurial values, I am proud to see the sixth generation hold key positions within the company.
