IMG_0196.JPGThe story of a cosmetics devotee

Téane was created in 2008 – the combined fruit of a young woman’s taste for cosmetics and an exceptional plant from Madagascar.

A chemical engineer by training, Agnès Ducrocq began her career heading up an R&D laboratory for a major technology multinational.

But when she turned 30, she decided to give up a fully mapped-out successful career and devote herself to her passion: cosmetics. She went back to school, got a DESS (Master’s degree) in cosmetics and perfumes and joined the ranks of such cosmetic giants as Revlon or By Terry, where she made a successful contribution to product range development.

In 2006, she experienced the thrill of starting up a company, by helping to launch the brand Crazylibellule & the Poppies.

It was this adventure that confirmed what she had always wanted to do: found her own brand and fly solo.

Although Agnès still didn’t have a clear idea of what her project would be, two things were certain: her brand would be organic and provide new cosmetic solutions for specific skin problems.

Her first goal was to find a plant active ingredient yet to be discovered in cosmetics but whose properties had much potential.
