Daring on the daily

Inspiration collection

Sensorial experts for more than 20 years, Gattefossé consistently surprises and delights with innovative cosmetic textures.

Five years ago, Gattefossé created INSPIRATION; a tool to discover new sensorial experiences and galvanize creativity. This creative concept provides pleasure, a sense of astonishment, and motivation to awaken formulators’ innermost imaginations.

INSPIRATION highlights one or more topics, each of which offers a refreshing take through novel textures and visuals. The prototypes that illustrate each idea will encourage formulators to rediscover Gattefossé’s ingredients outside of their comfort zone.

INSPIRATION for 2023 presents a new topic: DARING ON THE DAILY

This year, Gattefossé invites customers to re-enchant their daily lives and dare to be unique. Due to a world in constant flux, consumers are reinventing their routines, rather than following normal conventions.

For this new INSPIRATION, Gattefossé sets the tone for 2023 by giving a new narrative called: DARING ON THE DAILY! It is a joyful invitation that shakes up everyday conventions to celebrate life as a manifesto and assert your uniqueness.

This new expression of beauty is highlighted by 3 main themes – I.D. Manifesto, Playground, and Experience the Unexpected – encouraging disruptive & playful cosmetics.

Inspired by these trends, Gattefossé’s application lab has developed a collection of 7 innovative formulas that break the norms and explore new territories. Surprising & delightful, this new collection invites everyone to have fun, be bold, and be whimsical!

Be “daring on the daily”!

7 new formulas to shake up your daily routine and dare you to be yourself!

Primer-to-Powder is a makeup base featuring Emulium® Illustro. It starts with a rich, creamy texture that dries down to a powdery, matte finish, and leaves a silky smooth, even skin tone with long-lasting comfort and moisturization.

Chayote-Kiwi Sorbet


It’s time to discover new territories! Between the real and imaginary, appearances can be misleading…

Upon initial application, you’ll feel a fresh, creamy yet powdery sensation, that leaves a dry, soft, non-tacky after-feel due to Emulium® Mellifera MB. This cushion cream brings a refreshing and intense moisturization, acts as a blur, and protects the skin from photoaging with Solastemis™. The skin appears radiant, even, and healthy.
