We’re here to take care of you!
L’Atelier candide offers natural and organic cosmetics, each one chosen with the knowledge that it was created with simplicity and integrity. We wish to bring the best of nature right to your doorstep, making it easy for you to take care of yourself and your loved ones with no health risks. L’Atelier candide favours products that contain as few ingredients as possible, without compromising effectiveness.
To appear on our site, we require more than certifications. We scrupulously examine the composition of each product and display every ingredient in full transparency.
While we strive to give preference to local, Canadian products, L’Atelier candide is open to offering products from other countries if we believe they offer an authentic beauty option. Wherever our products are made, we exclusively feature brands that share our values and commitments.
All of our suppliers engage in ethical, respectful and environmentally friendly practices and refrain from conducting tests on animals.
Founder Solis Nahum
I am a vibrant and ambitious young woman and have been thriving in the beautiful city of Montréal since 2013. My journey into entrepreneurship began with an awareness of health and environmental issues, as well as my curiosity to learn more. Fuelled by my desire to find meaning in everything I do, I was inspired to spread my wings and launch myself into a wonderful adventure. I envisioned L’Atelier candide as a way to meet our world’s ever-growing need to have access to natural products. We shouldn’t need to have a chemistry degree to decode labels.
Before coming to Canada, I spent my childhood in Benin, between Porto-Novo and Cotonou. My dream to discover other cultures led me to move to France where I lived in Lille, Grenoble and Lyon. All my life, I’ve been in love with nature and a firm believer in its many benefits. As a devoted consumer of natural products, I now seek to share my experience with others. My favourite bathroom essentials are entirely fair trade and include my soothing and hydrating Aloe Vera gel, regenerating and nourishing Macadamia Oil, and Shea Butter which protects against the cold and offers after-sun relief.
