Ecocert is an inspection and certification body established in France in 1991 by agronomists aware of the need to develop environmentally friendly agriculture and of the importance of offering some form of recognition to those committed to this method of production. Ecocert contributed to the expansion of organic farming in the 1990s by helping to draw up French and European regulations. Still very involved in promoting organic farming, Ecocert today works with French and international institutions in supporting project development. By winning the confidence of professionals and consumers, Ecocert has become a benchmark in organic certification worldwide. Consistent with its commitment to organic farming, Ecocert has opted to put its technical expertise to use in supporting the environment, developing its own specifications for the inspection and certification of products, systems and services. By defining strict requirements that meet consumer expectations, Ecocert Group encourages economic stakeholders to adopt responsible practices.

DN-UNIK STORY

Beauty cannot be confined to a box. It is a subtle mix and balance between the joy of being and the pleasure of appearing. Contemporary women thrive in the fast pace of cities, and we know from experience to what extent the skin in such environments is impaired, losing in freshness and glow. Stress, pollution and the excesses of urban life impede on its radiance. DN-UNIK will serve as a natural filter, a guarantee for optimum youth.

Everything absorbed or even touched by the skin goes into our lymphatic system and travels into our blood system in less than twenty minutes. For this reason, we decided to select and combine some natural active substances, capable to act on the structure of the skin and preserve thereby the firmness of its tissues over a long period. Peruvian Tara Seed, which act directly on the skin’s stem cells, marsh trefoil, rich in trace elements and raspberry seed oil, which delays aging, are cleverly blended to the moisturizing and regenerating effects of hyaluronic acid, a mixture of plants and algae. Thus is born the elixir of contemporary beauties, synthesizing state-of-the-art research and ancestral know-how, in an exclusive range of organic products.

It is in the town of Vichy, the cradle of the kings of France, resting at the foot of the Auvergne mountains, that DN-UNIK is born. It is in this famous area of thermal medicine and well-being, that she entrusted her selection of plants and algae to chemists to extract the specific formulae of this new organic brand.

It is a town in the heart of nature renown for the therapeutic effects of the bubbling waters emerging from the surrounding Jurassic mountains. Waters used and worshipped since 2000 years by the «elders». At the beginning of the 20th Century, Vichy became a cosmopolitan city with palaces, theaters and manifold gardens.
During the «Roaring Twenties», spa resorts represented a global approach to well-being, eternal youth and modern medicine. Russian princes, sultans, British businessmen, artists, American high-society women and famous athletes met here to tend to body and mind. To replenish their skin.

Inventors and progressive doctors brought research and new technologies to the spa industry. Since 1993, they create diverse synergies within the «Organic high-tech park of Vichy»: students in cosmetics and biotechnologies work passionately hand in hand with laboratories and high-tech industries to allow health and beauty to flourish.

“the skin is our deepest attribute” Paul Valéry

It is the expression of our deepest feelings, the general receptacle of our whole being.
Because each woman is unique, DN-UNIK is her special elixir, her beauty secret.
