Yves Rocher

Who are we?


We were born from a love story between Mr. Yves Rocher and the Breton nature, its coasts, its moors, its forests and its fields.

Pioneers of botanical cosmetics, we reveal the power of plants, for the well-being of all, in an approach that respects nature and its biodiversity.

For more than 60 years, we have been botanists, harvesters, manufacturers and resellers of care products, colors and fragrances. To make the best of nature accessible to all. From our plants to your skin. Period. "




The birth
of a nature

Yves Rocher was born in the small village of La Gacilly, in Brittany. At the age of 14, as a result of the death of his father, he took refuge in the woods where he found solace. At this moment, Yves Rocher realized that nature has a positive impact on our well-being. He then decided to make a hand-made cream from lesser celandine in his attic. This was the beginning of botanical beauty.


Creation of
the Brand

From his family home, Yves Rocher created his own laboratory. With mail order, he succeeded in bringing naturally committed skincare products directly to millions of women, without intermediaries. Accessible products distributed all over France.


The icon that
crosses the ages

Launch of "Riche Crème Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream”
With its precious oils and its thousand roses oil, it didn't take long for our anti-aging product to become a hit. 50 years later, our Riche Crème line became iconic to millions of women with 1 product sold every 5 seconds around the world.


Creation of the
Botanical Garden
in La Gacilly

A real open-air laboratory imagined by Mr. Yves Rocher. 1500 plant species are preserved and studied by our experts. Member of the BGCI (Botanic Gardens Conservation International), the Yves Rocher Botanical Garden is part of an international network for the transfer of knowledge and savoir-faire.


From our plants
to your skin

We become botanists, harvesters, manufacturers and retailers. A complete value chain with no middlemen, which allows us to control each step of the manufacturing process for a reduced environmental impact and a perfect traceability, from our fields to your skin.
