Singular, vegan, natural, and made in France since 1840, our products revisit the codes of beauty care and are adapted to all skin types, even sensitive skin.

The vision of a pioneer

With the help of experts and genealogists, we have retraced the epic of the Cottan House, until we have uncovered the secrets of this avant-gardist enterprise.

As soon as 1840, Jean-François Arsène Cottan rethought the composition of hygiene products to eliminate all harmful substances and to make each act of washing a moment of care in its own right, with the greatest respect for the skin's nature, thanks to his surprisingly modern vision of the art of formulation.

From Rivoli to the United States

Thanks to its numerous patented innovations, the COTTAN House conquered over time a place of first rank and in 1900, we can read that "the Parisian woman, elegant and independent, opts for the safe bet and will make her choice, among the brands of the time like Violet, Coudray, Gellé, Cottan, Pinaud, Delettrez, Molinard, Guerlain, Dorin, and Lubin".

In its boutiques in Rue de Châteaudun, then Rivoli, but also in French and American department stores, COTTAN rhymes with care and refinement.

Return to grace

In order to meet the needs of today's women, in terms of formulation and naturalness, COTTAN is reborn to offer them a whole new face of beauty, combining tradition and modernity.

By rewriting these forgotten classics to enhance their cosmetic virtues and their unequalled sensory, we hope to surprise, amaze and pamper the future customers of this new golden age.
