As a young girl, Marie du Petit Thouars grew up in Belgium making candles and experimenting with scents in her mother’s greenhouse. With the creation of Maison Louis Marie, she has built upon the rich botanical history of her family with luxury candles, perfumes & skincare that focus on illustrious scents imbued with unique floral fragrances. Maison Louis Marie composes delicate creations to enchant your lifestyle; a floral tradition since 1792.
Maison Louis Marie uses clean beauty practices, which is all about their strict adherence to providing environmentally-mindful products that do not contain toxic ingredients (whether harvested or made) that may pollute the earth or harm one's body by use. They don't test products on animals and they never utilize animal-derived ingredients. The brand always strikes a careful balance between utilizing synthetic and natural ingredients. They only use synthetic ingredients in order to protect the planet from the over-harvesting of endangered plants, to avoid animal products and to protect against known natural allergens.
In terms of packaging, they use recycled fiberboard and paper in their gift boxes. The brand doesn't use any toxic coating on their papers and they utilize soy ink and avoid using shiny foils or other toxic ink treatments. Maison Louis Marie also does their utmost to limit plastic consumption wherever possible in products. They use glass bottles for their Eau de Parfums, Perfume Oils, Candles and 360 Skin Revival products and limit the wrapping of products in cello wrap. Products (including boxes) are made in and around the Los Angeles area in order to lower their carbon footprint and support the local economy as best they can. The factory that produces the boxes is the first carbon neutral manufacturer in the Western United States and is part of the Sustainable Foresty Initiative, the G7 Master Idea Alliance and possesses SGS Testing Certification.
