WHO IS AVRIL?
Created in April 2012 with the aim of making organic cosmetics accessible to all, Avril is a French brand that cultivates 4 strong values: quality, ecology, price and service.
Our first requirement is the quality of use and the result of the product: ease of application, color intensity, active effectiveness, pleasant smell and texture, long lasting ...
Each product is subject to strict quality controls (safety tests, traceability and quality of raw materials ...) that guarantee maximum stability and tolerance of the formula.
Whenever possible, we remove unwanted packaging from our products. Result, less waste and lighter products to reduce the environmental impact of their transport.
Our range of organic cosmetics is certified by an independent organization, Ecocert, which guarantees that at least 95% of the ingredients of our products are of natural origin and that at least 10% of the ingredients come from organic farming.
Finally, according to European legislation, we do not carry out tests on animals, whether raw materials or finished products.
Our desire is to make organic cosmetics accessible to everyone. To achieve this, we reduce all costs that seem superfluous to us: we do not advertise, we do not have a muse, we do not distribute samples ...
And because, like you, we like simplicity, our prices are fixed and you can benefit immediately, every day, without waiting for a promotion.
Avril's mission is to make organic quality
accessible to all. We pay special attention to quality
of our products.

quickly, the eyeliner emerges effortlessly thanks to the
your thin brush ...

safety tests, stability studiesand compatibility, control of
raw materials and finished products, identification of
production batches and traceability ... All these controls
ensure stability and maximum tolerance of the product.
As quality is also offering more natural products, respectful
to your skin and the environment, we chose to have our
line of organic cosmetics
certified by Ecocert.

parabens, phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles,
silicon,PEG, perfumes and synthetic dyes. Ingredients

Ecocert Certified Cosmos Label
The Cosmos Organic label applies to all new releases launched after January 2017. This new label is a bit more demanding than the Ecocert label because it imposes two new criteria:
- Creams and non-sparkling products must contain more of 20% of organic ingredients
- Non-biodegradable ingredients are no longer accepted.
Peta Cruelty Free Label
In accordance with European legislation, we do not perform any animal tests. For each of our cosmetic products (organic and non-organic), we have a complete technical and regulatory file summarizing the various quality controls performed.
Avril's cosmetics are labeled as No Cruelty by PETA, which ensures that no testing is performed on animals, both in finished products and in raw materials.

Ecocert and Qualité France. These labels ensure that
we respect the certification for organic cosmetics:

phenoxyethanol, nanoparticles, silicone, PEG, perfumes
and synthetic dyes,or ingredients of animals (except
naturally produced for them: milk, honey ...).
- The products contain at least 95% of the ingredients of
natural origin and at least 10% of organic agricultural.
10% may seem rather low, but you should know that
there are water and mineral (and therefore non-
agricultural) ingredients in cosmetics ...
In fact, they are at least 95% of the plant ingredients
which must be organic farming.
- The packaging is validated by Ecocert to the
lower impact on the environment.
WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THE ENVIRONMENT?
First, we minimize the packaging: we remove all
boxes and bubbles, and we prefer that the packages
use less plastic.
Then we develop only organic certified products
(except nail polish and solvents), at affordable prices,
so that everyone can discover the organic universe. For
non-organic products, we have made them as natural as
possible: our nail polish formula is free of 7 ingredients
