Quels sont les besoins fondamentaux de la peau?

What does your skin really need?

In pharmacies and beauty stores, the cosmetics shelves display a multitude of products, giving the impression that the skin requires a variety of care.

But what are the true needs of the skin? In reality, healthy skin, in an ideal environment, requires no additional skincare products!

Consider all your organs: they function without needing a multitude of products to support them. The skin, as an organ, is indeed the largest of your body. Just as you maintain the health of your other organs by drinking water and adopting a balanced diet, the skin needs appropriate care to preserve its natural balance.

However, living in a world where pollution, heating, air conditioning, makeup, medications, and lifestyle habits can have a significant impact on your skin. For example, smoking affects not only the lungs but also the blood vessels, the brain, and the skin.

In such situations, our organs need a boost, and for the skin, this often translates to the use of cosmetic products.

The Role of Cosmetics

According to the official definition, a cosmetic product is intended to come into contact with various superficial parts of the human body for the purpose of cleansing, perfuming, altering appearance, protecting, maintaining in good condition, or correcting body odors.

There are two main categories of cosmetic products: conventional cosmetics and skincare. Conventional cosmetics often focus on appearance, prioritizing texture, skin feel, scent, and color. While they may provide a sense of comfort, they do not necessarily improve the skin's condition in the long run. Skincare products are designed to provide benefits for skin health.

Skin Care in Oleo-Cosmetics

Oleo-cosmetics (éméo's approach) focus on plant oils and their beneficial properties for the skin. Unlike conventional products, Oleo-cosmetic products are formulated to support the skin in its natural function, using natural ingredients rich in nutrients.

The skin's basic needs are cleansing and proper care. Daily cleansing removes excess sebum, impurities, and dead cells. It is important to avoid aggressive products containing alcohol or surfactants, as they can disrupt the skin's natural balance.

As for care, plant oils play a crucial role. They are rich in essential fatty acids, nourishing the skin and strengthening its protective barrier. Additionally, they are packed with beneficial active ingredients such as vitamins and minerals that support the health and vitality of the skin.

Additional Care and Transition to Oleo-Cosmetics

In addition to basic care such as cleansing and moisturizing, other treatments such as masks and targeted skincare products can be beneficial for the skin. However, these products are not always necessary, especially at the beginning of a skincare routine.

When transitioning from conventional products to Oleo-cosmetics, your skin may need some time to adjust. This may result in a "rebound effect," where the skin initially appears to react negatively before regaining its balance. It is therefore advisable to start gradually with basic Oleo-cosmetic products such as liniment, hydrosol, and serum before introducing other skincare products.

Healthy Skin is Beautiful Skin

Skin care is not just an act of beauty but also an act of health and well-being. By using the right products, such as those from the Éméo range, you are not only taking care of your skin but also your overall health and the environment.

éméo's skincare solutions are formulated with natural and environmentally friendly ingredients and offer a holistic approach to skincare. Their regular use helps maintain the skin's natural balance, protect it from external aggressors, and promote its long-term health.


Understanding the skin's fundamental needs and adopting a natural approach like Oleo-cosmetics can help maintain healthy, beautiful, and balanced skin.

By preferring skincare products with natural ingredients and avoiding aggressive products, you can support the health and beauty of your skin while preserving the environment. Éméo products are an example of this approach, offering effective and respectful solutions for radiant skin health.

By taking care of your skin with high-quality products, you are also investing in your overall well-being.
