The 5 good reasons to buy “made in France” cosmetics:
For more than 50 years, cosmetics has been a flagship of French know-how and France truly excels in everything directly or indirectly related to the field of beauty, care and hygiene. Leader and first exporting country for an amount exceeding the 13 billion euros, our country is the darling of its consumers! By the way, is it so obvious to buy French in cosmetics? It is precisely to answer this question that we give you 5 good reasons to buy “made in France” cosmetics!
For the record, know that at YESforLOV all cosmetic products are made in France: our dearest wish is to offer you quality products from French craftsmanship for more than 15 years. Arguments, we have some like “I love you”, in spades … but here are the main ones:
1. For the good health of your mucous membranes, for greater comfort in your love games, "made in France" cosmetics are a guarantee of high quality...
Our clientele includes all people who wish to privilege and cherish their intimate and loving well-being on a daily basis. The desire to do good, to take care of yourself before giving yourself to others, it's a beautiful philosophy, but you still have to do it with quality products. preserving the health of your mucous membranes. No cheating, they deserve much better! As soon as the mention “made in France” appears on the packaging of a cosmetic product, the product can claim to be a good quality product. However, we must remain vigilant and it is important to remember that French manufacturers have an obligation to comply with the rules adopted by the WHO, with the European provisions subject to EC regulation N1223/2009 but also with the French Public Health framework; the latter's regulations are the most stringent in the world, but also guarantee an unequaled level of safety .
In France, the obligations of the manufacturer are numerous. Each product must guarantee its compliance with the rules in force: the manufacturer must therefore assess the safety of the product for human health, communicate and assess the undesirable effects , comply with the rules of good manufacturing practice, respect the mandatory information of the labeling, indicate a durability date after opening , but also prove each of the characteristics and claims made on the product. For example, we had to provide proof through extensive scientific tests that our moisturizing intimate lubricant based on hyaluronic acid had all the required qualities! Confirmation was made that our lubricant, by its cosmetological virtues , was perfectly capable of significantly moisturizing the mucosa after dosage!
Recently, "product safety" found itself in the headlines: some substances are indeed prohibited or very limited in France while the rules are not at all the same in our neighbors and friends from abroad!
At YESforLOV, we offer "made in France" products designed in Paris or Annecy, formulated and manufactured in the best laboratories in France with “local” formulators and perfumers who work in partnership or in close collaboration with the best suppliers of raw materials. YESforLOV products are healthy and respect the greatest "naturalness", favor what is most natural, with formulas without mineral oils, without perfumes, without allergens or parabens and vegan for 95% of them.
At YESforLOV, we have a duty for our customers and future generations to offer high quality, healthy products, respectful of life, and of course not tested on animals . In our ideal, our approach does not stop there: anxious to always do better, we continue, day after day, to "source" new raw materials and new cosmetic active ingredients, to remove certain preservatives to replace them with others of better quality, to improve our formulas by seeking more “naturalness” and effectiveness. An ingredient is not just a name on an INCI list. Our YESforLOV teams take the time to compare the raw materials with each other in terms of their characteristics and specificities before choose the best of them, as was the case with our range of intimate silicone lubricants of incomparable quality.
2. To consume sustainably while preserving the environment.

By consuming French, you greatly limit the environmental impact since the carbon footprint is less than consuming a product straight from Asia or America: the shorter the trip, the more responsible you will be in your purchase! It should also be noted that good manufacturing practices in France are very demanding in terms of waste management.
Let's also avoid “greenashing”: the origin of everything that makes up the product, that is to say its cap, its bottle, its case, is just as important as its content. At YESforLOV we are committed to taking care of our planet: all our cases are PEFC certified , which is the guardian of the forest balance; this label guarantees the consumer that his act of purchase participates in the sustainable management of forests (since the case comes from it). All our inks are also 100% vegetable . The pigments are natural and deviate from the traditional prints made with inks and solvents of petrochemical origin. We also favor biodegradable bottles made from vegetable plastic derived from sugar cane, while also making sure to collaborate with quality and local suppliers of raw materials.
3. To support the local economy and fundamental respect for labor rights.
By deciding to buy French, you spend better since you contribute to the development of our small and medium-sized businesses. By consuming YESforLOV products, you support our small cardboard manufacturer located in the South-East of France, but also our perfumers in Grasse, our chemists, our production plants located in Haute-Savoie or elsewhere, but also the ESATs which are structures offering work to people with disabilities. Disability is recognized as the first form of discrimination. YESforLOV has made the wise and humane choice to entrust ESAT the packaging of several of its products such as weekend boxes and love boxes for the couple. Every year, we visit them to congratulate them and thank them for their collaboration. ESATs are an integral part of our business!
By purchasing our YESforLOV products, you also employ regulatory experts, laboratories, gynecologists, sexologists, salespeople, store managers, associations... but also all YESforLOV employees, designers, product managers, sexologists and even some interns… At YESforLOV, we participate at our level, in the creation of jobs in France and we are committed with conviction to the respect of "Human and Labor Rights". When we launch a new product, our value chain includes more than ten French partners.
It remains to be seen now if your crush is up to ours or if you will make the wrong choice of going to buy your intimate lubricating gel on the sly in a supermarket to take advantage of a product at a low price, in other words a product manufactured abroad, at low cost without any visibility on the formula or on the working conditions under which it was manufactured!
