Grangettes Switzerland and escine

At the house of Grangettes Switzerland, an ethical cosmetics brand, we chose to use escin for our eye contour gel. This ingredient is used in synergy with caffeine, also known for its properties decongestant and smoothing.

The floral water of matricaria recutita (blue chamomile) is also used in the composition of our eye contour gel : this plant has soothing and relaxing properties for the skin, as well as properties anti-inflammatories.


To fight against wrinkles and fine lines around the eyes, you can count on hyaluronic acid and the vitamin b3. The latter improves skin texture by reducing the appearance of enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles.


The composition of our eye contour gel, like all the products that make up our care range, excludes harmful products such as phenoxyethanol, parabens, silicones, pegs, irritants, allergens, comedogenic ingredients, petroleum-derived ingredients, endocrine disruptors, pollutants, or even products of animal origin. Our care is certified PETA Cruelty free and Vegan, which guarantees the absence of animal testing at all stages of manufacturing (raw materials and finished products).
