Talm’s products are made in France and made with 100% natural, vegan, and organic ingredients that are tracked for transparency and quality control.

IN THEIR OWN WORDS: “I was immediately won over by Kenza Keller's project. Her approach is very inspiring, modern and unique. I truly believe in her brand’s potential, and I am very proud of supporting a brilliant new brand, 30 years after I embarked on an incredible entrepreneurial adventure myself,” said Mathilde Thomas, co-founder of Caudalie.
