Atelier Steaven Richard forges a name for itself at French Design Forum

Coline BORDET - 13-févr.-2014 15:37:50

Atelier Steaven Richard specializes in upmarket metalwork for use in interior decoration: the company will display its creative work at the French Design Forum, organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK, on 6 March 2014, in central London. In its artistic working of metals, Atelier Steaven Richard’s workshop allies traditional French savoir-faire with innovative contemporary designs.   Situated in the very heart of Paris, Atelier Steaven Richard is active both in France and internationally. The company has been awarded the Living Heritage Company label and is a member of Grands Ateliers de France, a network of excellence covering over 80 traditional trades across the country. Atelier Steaven Richard counts some great names of architecture and interior decoration among its supporters, such as Jacques Garcia, Pierre Yovanovitch and Jean Nouvel.   Atelier Steaven Richard’s creations are custom-made and respond to the requirements and tastes of the world of luxury design. The company has invested a great deal in its research centre and favours experimentation with varied materials and shapes, when working side by side with decorators on their creations.   The French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK organises the French Design Forum in central London, on 6 March 2014. During the event, to be held at Chandos House, Steaven Richard, owner and founder of Atelier Steaven Richard, will present his workshop’s latest innovation: flooring — in the style of a parquet floor — made of textured metal, which is available in nickel silver, bronze, or stainless steel. This product was first perfected to respond to a request by Parisian fashion house Chanel to cover its creator’s studio floor with a Versailles parquet floor — made of metal.   This project has yielded positive outcomes for the company: Atelier Steaven Richard is now able to offer an entirely customisable metallic parquet floor, with a multiplicity of design options with regard to textures and shapes.   Following the introduction of the textured-metal parquet, Atelier Steaven Richard is now looking to expand upon its expertise in order to develop new manufacturing processes — an approach that is supported by the Ile de France Innovation Centre, the centre for innovation for Paris and its region.   Thanks to the company’s approach, which has always been open to a combination of innovative technology and creative design, Atelier Steaven Richard has perfected a technique that enables all metals to be textured with unique and diverse motifs. With Atelier Steaven Richard, designers are free to let their imagination roam, invent daring textures, and apply innovative techniques such as inlaying metal in wood panels.   Alongside this creative drive, Atelier Steaven Richard has been keen to maintain its expertise in the specialist company’s original craft, i.e. classic wrought-iron work.  The team in the workshop comprises highly skilled artists and continues to create wrought-iron pieces following the strict design rules of the art form.   About Atelier Steaven Richard   Steaven Richard’s Paris workshop opened in 2001 and, for over 10 years, has been offering high-quality services in artistic metalworking. The company works with a variety of materials including brass, chrome, steel and wrought iron in order to create, for example, pieces of furniture and interior decorative objects.   During a 10-year tour of Europe, Steaven Richard, founder and owner of Atelier Steaven Richard, familiarized himself with the different facets of forge work and wrought-iron work. Following a series of meetings within contemporary-art circles that revolutionized his approach to the craft, Steaven Richard then set out to launch himself into the artistic working of metals, placing his traditional expertise at the service of contemporary creativity.   Atelier Steaven Richard has been awarded the Living Heritage Company label. The Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (EPV, or Living Heritage Company) label is a mark of recognition given by the French government, which has put this scheme in place in order to reward French companies in the arts and crafts for the excellence of their traditional and industrial skills.   Atelier Steaven Richard will participate in the French Design Forum 2014, on 6 March of this year. The event, which is organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK, will take place at Chandos House, in central London.   Journalists and members of the trade are welcome to attend the event at a time that suits them, on the day, any time between 10.00am and 8.00pm. To register, they should get in touch with Ms Agathe Barbier, commercial officer in charge of the event at the French Trade Commission in London (see email address below), or with the press office.    To register your interest in this event, please RSVP to:   For further information about EPV, please go to:   For further information about Atelier Steaven Richard, please go to:     For further information, please contact :    Quote ref. : FTPB3898 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 View other press releases at :  

Elissance Paris range nails it at French Cosmetic Day 2014

Coline BORDET - 07-févr.-2014 12:30:39

Elissance Paris will be attending the French Cosmetic Day, in London (UK), on 25 February 2014, which will enable the company to showcase its three innovative products dedicated to restoring broken, damaged and dehydrated nails. The clinics run by development-laboratory Elissance Paris of France propose a three-stage treatment designed to reinvigorate and protect the nail, using products enriched with ultra-nourishing natural elements. Elissance Paris is seeking partners and distributors in Britain.   For several years, varnishing has been the must-have beauty product for those seeking to add a splash of colour to their wardrobe. However, the growth in the number of boutiques and nail bars offering a range of treatments — from semi-permanent varnishing to gel coating — has had a damaging effect on the health of women’s nails.   The removal of such treatments often involves the use of harsh chemicals and UV light, which damage and dry out the nail. Moreover, many external factors such as climate, diet and environment equally influence the state of a person’s nails. Elissance Paris’ solution is designed to reverse the damaging effects of modern treatments in a few simple stages.   The company will attend the French Cosmetic Day, a B2B event organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the UK on 25 February of this year. The French Cosmetic Day, which will take place from 12 noon to 3.00pm on the premises of the French Trade Commission, in the heart of the West End, will enable Elissance Paris to showcase its novel concept in Britain for the first time.   The Elissance Paris solution can be easily implemented in three stages. The first step involves reinvigorating the nails with Elixir, which is a nourishing solution composed of oils and natural essences including myrrh, chestnut oil, and vitamins A, E and Provitamin B5. This combination of ingredients encourages healing, regeneration and growth of the nail.   A generous amount of Elixir should be applied nightly to the cuticles, and then, delicately massaged into the nail. The surplus should be left overnight to be absorbed by the nail and the cuticle. The next morning, the Elixir should be washed away with soap and another base layer should be applied. This process should be repeated daily over a period of 10 days.   The second step involves the application of Le Gommage, the deep-cleaning formula that softens and eliminates dead cuticles from the surface of the nail, allowing for a complete clean. Le Gommage contains high levels of vitamins and proteins, as found in almond oil, which is valued for its moisturising and softening effect; lemon oil, for its purifying and antiseptic properties; and, finally, glycerine, in order to restore hydration to the skin and nail.   The third step involves protecting the nail with the 3-in-1 Varnish developed by Elissance Paris, which covers the nail in a protective film to render a natural, ultra brilliant finish. The formula is reinforced with vitamin E, which is high in antioxidants and gives protection, suppleness and moisture to the nail. The varnish also includes wheat-germ oil, which is rich in proteins that nourish, protect and stimulate the nail.   Subsequently, this unique formula can be used in combination with coloured varnish. As a base coat, the 3-in-1 Varnish effectively protects nails from the transfer of certain colours and is an ideal product to apply before coloured nail varnish. As a top coat, the product forms a protective film, which gives a high-shine finish and long-lasting maintenance to the colour.   About Elissance Paris   Based in the Paris region (France), B&SENS manufactures and distributes a range of innovative products under the Elissance Paris brand. Having worked for several years within the beauty industry, the company’s founders launched B&SENS with a view to creating simple and stylish high-quality products to meet the needs of modern women.   The company’s novel product formulas bring together the best ingredients from essential oils, minerals and natural extracts. B&SENS’ R&D laboratories analyze, select and extract the active ingredients from these elements and combine them to produce a natural range of cosmetics suited to all skin types. Not a single product developed by B&SENS contains any parabens or has been tested on animals.   The company will attend the French Cosmetic Day, a B2B event organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in the United Kingdom on 25 February 2014. The French Cosmetic Day will take place on the premises of the French Trade Commission, in the heart of the West End (central London), between 12 noon and 3.00pm.   A total of nine companies will showcase their products, including B&SENS. The other participants are Candora, Demain Nature, Detaille, Indemne, Ixxi, Kadalys, MGC International and Neomist, which are all dynamic and interesting brands looking to build partnerships in the UK.   For further information about the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE in London, please go to:   For further information about Elissance Paris, please go to:     For further information, please contact :   Quote ref. : FTPB3903 Ms Kate RILEY - Press Officer UBIFRANCE Press Office in London Tel: +44 (0) 207 024 3640 View other press releases at :  

Kadalys launches anti-ageing banana-based cosmetic in UK

Coline BORDET - 22-janv.-2014 17:26:30

Kadalys of France is a highly innovative company specialising in natural cosmetic products incorporating the unique anti-ageing benefits of West Indian bananas into a proven formula. The company, based in Martinique and Paris, will showcase its MUSACTIF® range in London (UK) as part of the French Cosmetic Day, a B2B event organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE on 25 February 2014. Kadalys is seeking distributors in Britain.   “With our roots both in Martinique [in the French West Indies] and in Paris, we can say, at Kadalys, that we have — in more ways than one — found beauty at the heart of the banana plantations of the Caribbean region! We have also placed the banana, with its amazing properties, at the heart of the production of a novel class of 100% organic, truly unique cosmetic products. We are proud of the anti-ageing benefits that our natural cosmetic products offer,” explains Shirley Billot, founder and CEO of Kadalys.   The company will attend the French Cosmetic Day, a B2B event organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE on 25 February of this year. The French Cosmetic Day, which will take place from 12 noon to 3.00pm on the premises of the French Trade Commission, in the heart of the West End, will enable Kadalys to showcase its novel cosmetic products in Britain for the first time.   Kadalys has developed MUSACTIF®, a banana concentrate with unique properties. Referred to as Kadali in Sanskrit, the ancient Indian language, the banana tree is, in the Hindu tradition, an embodiment of Lakshmi, the goddess of beauty. This giant tropical plant, known as the Tree of a Thousand Uses, holds a special place in the traditional medicine of tropical and sub-tropical countries. Thus, the fruit of the banana tree has long been known for its healing and soothing properties.   After two years of R&D, Kadalys has created two unique, oily active ingredients, which concentrate the extraordinary antioxidant and anti-ageing properties found in green and yellow bananas that grow in the Caribbean region. Kadalys explains that MUSACTIF® fights against signs of ageing by stimulating the skin’s natural mechanisms with clinically proven results: the cosmetic product elaborated by Kadalys boosts the production of collagen by 136% and increases the person’s epidermal thickness, points out company founder Shirley Billot. MUSACTIF® is 100% natural and has been certified organic by ECOCERT.   There are differences in the properties of the green and the yellow banana. The green banana offers a perfectly balanced concentration of antioxidants and OM9 (or Omega 9 elements): when applied, extracts from the green banana counter the first signs of ageing and protect the skin against chemical aggressions by the atoms (or groups of atoms) known as free radicals.   The yellow banana, for its part, contains remarkably high levels of phytosterols, polyphenols, OM6 (Omega 6) and OM3 (Omega 3), which neutralize the free radicals and provide the skin with unique regenerating and restructuring properties. “This helps your skin fight against the visible signs of ageing and reduces their appearance,” explains Shirley Billot.   Since its launch in September 2012, Kadalys has enjoyed considerable coverage in the French media. The company won two awards in September 2013. Firstly, the quality of Kadalys’ products was recognised as part of the Victoire de la Beauté Awards, which are the most prestigious French prize in the field of cosmetic products.   Kadalys submitted three different products — Musaclean peel, Green Banana nutritive oil and Musalis serum — to the 70-strong jury in 2013. After rigorous tests, all three won the prestigious award, which is regarded as a guarantee of a product’s effectiveness across the industry. Kadalys’ cosmetic products were praised for their texture, perfume and efficacy.   Secondly, Kadalys’ products won two prizes at COSMEETING Paris, which focuses on the most promising brands and stages a competition that is highly valued by industry players and specialists. The COSMEETING awards stem from the recognition that is afforded by a demanding jury going by the highest standards — a jury made up of international prescribers on the lookout for new talents and innovative concepts.   Each year, at COSMEETING, brands are singled out that meet stringent criteria in terms of innovation, originality and novelty. In 2013, Kadalys won two Beauty Challenger Awards: the Press Favourite Award and the Emerging Brand Award.   About Kadalys   Kadalys is owned by SHB SAS, a French-based company specialising in cosmetics that was created by Shirley Billot in 2011. Kadalys runs operations in Martinique (in the French West Indies) and in Paris (in mainland France). As part of its international expansion, Kadalys is currently looking for distributors in the UK.   The company specialises in researching and developing new active ingredients inspired by Creole medicine, the traditional medicine of the Caribbean region. Kadalys has acquired particular expertise in the beauty benefits of active ingredients extracted from the banana tree, as found in the West Indies.   In 2012, the company was nominated by the French Ministry of Higher Education and Research on the occasion of the 14th national competition for businesses involved in innovative technologies: Kadalys was awarded the status of Young Innovative Company (Jeune Entreprise Innovante or JEI, in French).   The company will attend the French Cosmetic Day, in central London, a B2B event organised by the French Trade Commission UBIFRANCE on 25 February 2014. The French Cosmetic Day will take place on the premises of the French Trade Commission, in the heart of the West End, between 12 noon and 3.00pm.    A total of nine companies will showcase their products, including Kadalys.
