PHYT’S AROMATIC becomes PHYT’S Laboratories. PHYT’S is bought by Thierry Logre, a passionate biologist trained in phytotherapy, aromatherapy & alternative medicines. Already at the head of a Laboratory of food supplements, he takes over the reins of the brand with the desire to keep the spirit and the difference of PHYT’S developing a wide range of organic beauty products.
J.P Lopart and Rosanne Verlé took PHYT’S to the next level and became Certified Organic to the COSMEBIO Standard by ECOCERT. The COSMEBIO label guarantees a Certified Organic Cosmetic.

Biologist and Naturopath J.P Lopart and Esthetician Rosanne Verlé group the Professional Treatment ampoules into specific treatment kits designed to care for each individuals’ skin care needs.
The products are packaged in polyfoil tubes (3 layers so light and air cannot effect the formula) so that they can be distributed to customers for retail sale; in addition to some professional products for salon use.
Phytal becomes PHYT’S AROMATIC. These terms refer to phytotherapy (treat by plant maceration) and aromatherapy (treat with essential oils).
J.P Llopart files a patent after he succeeds in packaging masks, creams and serums in glass ampoules which protect the products from damaging outside conditions. The hermetically sealed ampoules ensure the product is as active and fresh as the day it was packaged without the use of synthetic preservatives. This single-use treatment dose provides complete hygiene for both the Esthetician and their client. To date this packaging format continues to be used in our Professional Spa Treatments.
The following year, all products are packaged in this format. Sealed ends ensure no oxidation / activation of serum / cream and perfect hygiene: its volume corresponds to a dose for each client and upon opening pure, concentrated ingredients with fast effect.
Creation of Phytal by Jean-Paul Llopart, naturopathic biologist, and Rosanne Verlé, beautician. In this year Phytal is already a cosmetic brand of natural origin for Beauty institutes. Revolutionary in its approach to beauty, inseparable from health, Jean-Paul Llopart then founded the foundations of “Naturo-Esthetique®”… “Beauty & health from inside & outside”. From the beginning, some of the flagship products are renowned: the famous Crème Absolue, the Gommage Contact+ Scrub and the purifying Serum C17, all still top products today.
