About Aster

photoCarmen

Soins Aster was founded by Carmen St-Pierre, a businesswoman and naturopath, trained in Chinese medicine, with an approach integrating naturopathy and beauty treatments, in order to treat both the face and the body in their entirety.

In 2007, while doing research for face and body care products that would be effective and contain no toxic or chemical products at the same time, Carmen noted that few products were available that might meet the needs of her clinic and its clients. Applying her in-depth knowledge of the benefits of certain plants, she began to formulate products in collaboration with a certified laboratory. Today, Soins Aster proudly offers four product ranges: Aster, Bio Bella and Soins & Soi, as well as Dermessence.

Our mission: To create, manufacture and provide natural cosmetic products that are effective and affordable to all those who wish to enhance their beauty while respecting their health and protecting our environment, in line with our promise and our values.

Our promise: To provide you with face and body care products that are of high quality, effective and composed of 100% organic or environmentally-friendly ingredients, free of all chemical and toxic ingredients. In other words: To allow you to feel beautiful and in harmony with your health and our environment!

Our values: These values have always been fundamental to all decisions taken by Carmen and her team, as much with respect to our partnerships, the formulation of our products, the origin of the ingredients, our packaging, etc.

  • A global approach to beauty and health:

The body’s outer covering cannot be distinguished from its interior. And a person’s beauty is related to the radiance of the skin and its health. That’s why we believe that face and body care treatments must respect the nature of the skin.

  • Authenticity:

In everyday language, Aster means “authenticity.” Whether in our ways of doing things or acting, or in the choice of products that we use, we opt for authenticity every time. For example, the essential oils we use are authentic, meaning 100% pure, 100% natural and organic and 100% complete.

  • Quality:

In order to ensure authenticity, controlling quality is vital. Physical and chemical tests are carried out by an independent laboratory to ensure the quality of the essential oils that Aster uses to manufacture its products.

  • Social responsibility:

Aster is a socially responsible company: as much as possible, we give priority to quality products that come from the neighboring regions of our factory. We are also concerned about the origin or raw materials and the processes of transformation, and we promote fair-trade business practices.

Soins Aster is proud to contribute to its clients’ well-being and beauty, as well as to the protection of our environment. This pride is our most important source of motivation!

Some background to the story of Soins Aster

No effective, natural products are being produced for professional use? Really?

In 2007, while researching for face and body care products that would be at once effective and free of any toxic or chemical ingredients, Carmen noted that few products were available that might meet the needs of her clinic and its clients.

First, products for health and beauty professionals and the health of their clienteles…

Applying her in-depth knowledge of the benefits of certain plants, she began to formulate products in collaboration with the Kefiplant laboratory, specialized in plant fermentation.
To being with, Carmen developed the Aster professional range, in collaboration with aestheticians who were also searching for effective, natural products that would provide genuine treatments and were exempt from all chemical or toxic ingredients.

Health and beauty professionals now have access to products that can be used for treatments in clinics, that are accessible and without danger for their health or that of their clientele! These products and a complete range of products for resale are now available from Aster bio-aestheticians.

Then came natural cosmetic products for the body, inside and out!

The Soins & Soi range includes all-natural daily care products for the body at affordable prices. They are available online as well as from certain retail outlets.

Dermessence, the first bio-natural anti-glycation dietary supplement available on the market, was then developed in collaboration with Dr. Sergi Rollan, to round out the natural skin care range.

The Bio Bella range, our latest!

In 2016, Soins Aster added the Bio Bella range, which includes cosmetic products for facial care and makeup. Formulated from plants and natural ingredients selected for their beneficial action, for all types of skin, these products are available here.
