1922. Surrounded by the cultural and artistic vitality of the crazy twenties, a Parisian apothecary genius created an elixir that contained essential and vegetable oils that quickly became the beauty secret loved by Parisian women.
Huile absolue was born.
At the beginning of the 21st century, Huile Absolue's formula was rediscovered, giving rise to the PATYKA brand that bears the name of the ancient Greek "apothḗkē", in memory of the apothecary of the twenties. Since then, PATYKA has grown its legacy and developed a unique experience in Green Chemistry and Biotechnology.
In 2002, PATYKA became the first cosmetic brand in the world to receive the Ecocert organic certification with its unique vision of beauty, where effectiveness, ethics and excellence are interconnected. PATYKA was and is a pioneer in creating the first premium certified organic skin care products. These exceptional products with their unique sensory aromas and textures are elegant and refined, providing the luxury of a radiant and balanced complexion to those who use them.
All Patyka products are certified as organic.
The certification is granted by the renowned independent body Ecocert. No tests are performed on animals and almost all products are 100% vegan, except the Sacred Lotus Facial Cream and the Antioxidant Smoothing Universal Cream, which contain beeswax. PATYKA originated in Paris and remains in Paris to this day with all "Made in France" products.
We work with the best producers to harvest botanical assets of the highest quality and with French artisans and manufacturers to develop the most attractive aromas and the most innovative packaging.
