140 years at the service of women

In the late nineteenth century, the company that later would lead to Chantelle was created. At that time, the feminine silhouette lived daily with corsets trying to crush any hint of feminine curvature.

Chantelle, a name invented by the grandfather of Claude Kretz (creator of the band that catapulted the success the firm) in 1912, resembled one of the names of an American fashion label after the Second World War, Chantal.

After five generations in the hands of the same family, Chantelle continues to create the most sophisticated and cutting edge women’s lingerie.

New products with Argan oil from The Body Shop

The Body Shop presents a new line of bath and body products with Argan oil.
Grupo
 
The organic Argan oil from The Body Shop is carefully extracted by pressing the seeds of Argan, split by hand by Berber women of southwestern Morocco. The seeds are crushed and subjected to a slow filtration process of 48 hours, to extract the purest possible oil.
 
The Body Shop collaborates with Targanine, a network of women’s cooperatives, which helps to empower its 334 members to become socially and economically independent. This project offers women the opportunity to support their families with a stable income and an affable working environment.
 
Argan is indigenous to Morocco, specifically to the foothills of the Atlas mountains, whose forests have been declared a Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO.
 
Argan oil is rich in polyunsaturated fatty acids, above all linoleic acid (Omega 6) and natural tocopherols.
ARGAN
The tree takes 5 years to produce its first fruit, and then every two seasons produces another. The berries are harvested in the summer, early in the morning when temperatures are cooler.
The fruits are dried in the sun and then transported to Targanine cooperatives where Berber women process the precious Argan oil.
The dried fruit pulp is removed. From each fruit 2 to 3 seeds are obtained.
There are four steps to have a beautiful skin:
1. A bath with Argan oil to prepare the skin
2. Exfoliate the skin and remove dead cells
3. Hydration with body lotion
4. Apply the oil for a radiant tone
