The laboratory

Localisation LaboratoireALVEND laboratory, a family-run company, was created  in  1995 in Somloire, in the West Northern part of France, to ensure the manufacturing and the development of natural and organic cosmetics and personal care. It was born from a French "Success story » initiated by Mrs. Jeanine Gabory. Committed woman, passionate for nature and plants, she created, in 1985, Fleur des Mauges, a  home delivery company.

Ten years later her son, Samuel Gabory, joined the family business to create ALVEND laboratory, that will become, in less than a decade, one of the top 10 French laboratories specialized in vegetable chemistry.

The year 2005 was marked by the creation of COMPTOIR DES LYS, company dedicated for the distribution in natural and organic stores.
