Lucie and Ralph, we are Hona Cosmetics founders. I am French, he is Lebanese and everything started 5 years ago in Montreal.
Following a major hair loss that had been going on for months, I tried to find a solution. I realized the deceptive marketing techniques of many conventional brands.
Finally, I started to formulate my own cosmetics After long periods of testing, research and approval by toxicologists, we created Hona and now share with you healthy, reliable and suitable products for everyone, like our solid shampoo that we love !
I always loved this underground atmosphere “ShowRoom / Lab” that reigns in Montreal.
So we chose our premises by transforming it into a Showroom and open Laboratory, 2 in 1! I like this “open kitchen” style, this transparency, like in restaurants where the Chef reveals his “savoir-faire” to everyone. By the way, this is the origin of our Slogan: HONEST LAB.
As a customer, we are all looking for a label-compliant, natural and authentic product. This is our primary value to Hona. Our cosmetics are manufactured according to European regulations and standards (GMP and ISO 22716) and have been approved by a toxicologist.
Products for whom?
All our fragrance-free cosmetics are handmade, with organic oils .
In order to keep all the oils and clays properties, we manufacture soaps COLD. This is called cold saponification. In other words, it allows soap to keep all its softening and nourishing properties for our skin. Therefore, it is especially suitable for pregnant women and sensitive people
Hona and the environment
Our packaging has been thought out and designed to best respect the planet and reduce the impact on our environment:
- Boxes are made of recycled paper
- Boxes of our body butter are made of resin, fully biodegradable.
- Natural spongebags are made of organic cotton, made in Portugal
We look forward to meeting you at the Lab if you are in Ericeira! Otherwise, we wish you a nice visit of our website!
