APO was created when three entrepreneurs from the North of France met.
They were three fathers with a passion for simple, quality products.
A strong desire to be producers to make organic
and 100% natural cosmetic products affordable.
At APO, we never compromise on naturalness!
We believe that the products we use every day,
for us and for our children,
should be as simple as possible,
without ingredients of concern.
Care products with reassuring ingredients
is our commitment.
It all started with skin problems.
Our soap maker's name is Romuald; he is 43.
The daily life of this former R&D formulator in the pharmaceutical industry
was regulated by repeated showers.
As he was working daily in a protective suit to develop drugs against cancer and leukaemia,
his skin has suffered from permanent contact with synthetic products.
Not finding soaps suitable for his skin condition,
he decided to make his own extra-creamy, cold-technique soaps,
with moisturizing and ultra-nourishing properties.
Building on his success, he has been manufacturing quality natural care products since 2014 in a conscious zero waste approach.
An artisanal and eco-responsible workshop
Our soaps are handmade in our workshop located in Wattrelos,
in the North of France.
We do our best every day to limit our environmental impact.
Our workshop is eco-designed and certified High Environmental Quality.
We recover rainwater, we heat with geothermal energy,
the walls are wood siding,
and the electricity comes from the solar panels on our roof.
We manufacture our products with complete transparency
according to strict health and environmental constraints.
We have chosen to go beyond the most committed organic labels :
Our workshop is
certified by Ecocert
100% natural origin
0% Palm oil
A maximum of raw materials
from Organic Agriculture
A solid know-how in ORGANIC cosmetics
We have a real know-how in solid organic cosmetics and especially in cold-process method.
It is an artisanal manufacturing method that preserves the benefits of oils and plants.
Respectful of the environment, it is a process that results from the reaction between a fatty substance and a strong base to give soap and glycerin.
The natural glycerin and oils in surgras bring moisturizing and ultra-nourishing properties to the soap.
The cold-processed soap is 100% biodegradable and doesn't pollute water or soil during use.
