The House Alyscamps
ALYSCAMPS IS HISTORY
Or the "Champs-Elysées", one of the emblems of the Roman heritage of Arles, in Provence, painted by Van Gogh and Gauguin.
From the Venus of Arles, a sculpture from the Roman era representing the goddess Aphrodite, "the most beautiful woman in the kingdom" according to Louis XIV, now in the Louvre.
And Arles itself, an inspiring city whose artistic activity, traditions and historical heritage give it a unique identity.
Of a striking nature
The beauty of the landscapes of the Alpilles.
The charm of chic and intimate Provence.
The magic of the Camargue, raw and wild land.
Of my family
My husband, Jean-François, pharmacist and native of Arles, has always wanted to highlight his city, like his grandfather in love with Van Gogh.
My children and supporters, Camille and Pierre.
And myself, pharmacist and Arlesian at heart, I created Alyscamps, combining science and beauty while promoting this unique Provence.
of a need
High-performance cosmetics using ingredients of natural origin, sourced in Provence or from research that has demonstrated their effectiveness.
Formulas as "clean" as possible while respecting health and the environment.
Multi-benefit or multi-function products to limit the accumulation of products on the skin in order to let it breathe as much as possible...by reducing overconsumption.
A way to respond to our daily family struggle: take care of atopic, reactive skin... while having fun!
Me, Julie, founder of Alyscamps and doctor of pharmacy specialized in the vigilance of health products. My experience as a former pharmacy intern in Paris hospitals and my experience with health authorities, the pharmaceutical industry and my own consulting company give me the independence needed to found my own brand.
I stay true to my principles. An ethics guided by the Oath of Galen, pronounced by all doctors of pharmacy. A line of conduct: rely on scientific results to select effective and safe ingredients. An unconditional deal that I take particularly to heart: transparency.

Our Care, Promises
Multi-benefit or multi-function treatments
By creating "all-in-one" multi-active treatments, we make sure to limit the excess of products in your bathroom as much as possible, for the good of your skin and the environment.
In a single step, your skin is filled with everything it needs, its balance is preserved.
The search for efficiency
The effectiveness of the active ingredients selected for the formulation of Alyscamps treatments is scientifically proven (patents, studies and scientific literature).
The concentration rate of the active ingredients used is carefully respected in order to guarantee their optimal effectiveness.
Thus, the benefits are there in a single gesture.
Nature at the heart of care
97% to 99% of the selected ingredients are of natural origin.
Some are sourced in the south of France, such as derivatives of olive trees, sunflowers, apricots or from Mediterranean plants, such as lentisk pistachio, almonds or figs.
The others come from plants and come from research, such as acetylated hyaluronic acid (known as "Filler" with wrinkle-filling benefits), the anti-inflammatory bisalolol or the vitamin C derivative. The anti-pollution filter and the prebiotic are also of natural origin.
The pleasure at the key
Each of our treatments is meticulously thought out to offer you a real moment of well-being.
Silky and non-sticky textures, a few notes of a delicate perfume... nothing has been left to chance.
The perfumes were created exclusively for Alyscamps by Maïlis Richard-Royer, an expert in 100% natural fragrances, and are then produced by the perfumer Robertet in Grasse.
A delicate universe composed of three olfactory signatures (feminine, masculine and unisex).
Fig tree notes are wrapped in a floral heart, in the freshness of aromatic, woody or fruity notes (rose, violet, rosemary, iris, myrtle, bergamot, peppermint, etc.).
Promoting local sectors in Provence and Camargue
We work to ensure that the majority of our assets come from local resources
(olive, sunflower, apricot, Camargue salt...).
Widely used in the formulation of our treatments, olive oil is no exception to this principle.
The selected extra virgin olive oil is cold extracted and organic. It holds the Protected Designation of Origin of the Vallée des Baux-de-Provence.
Made in France
An eco-responsible and local approach:
– aim for the lowest possible carbon footprint,
– rely on French know-how, the best in the luxury and beauty sector,
– create jobs by favoring French suppliers and growing the team.
Go back to basics for a simplified beauty routine
Choosing multi-benefit or multi-function treatments, “all-in-one” treatments, means avoiding the accumulation of products in the bathroom and overconsumption.
Above all, it means limiting the number of products on the skin, such as preservatives, and thus reducing the risk of skin sensitization.
Alyscamps favors approaches to limit its environmental impact and preserve the planet.
We limit overconsumption with multi-active treatments. Pump bottles limit the loss of products and we try to use recyclable packaging (glass and cardboard) as much as possible.
The cardboard used for the boxes is FSC certified, guaranteeing that the forests are managed responsibly and sustainably.
Alyscamps wants to go further by becoming more involved in the circular economy, in particular by recovering waste from the olive tree or by using apricot kernels.
The future of Alyscamps is already taking shape.
