Oppidum artisan made skin care was founded by two Frenchmen located in the Southwest of France in 2017. One is a researcher, passionate about archives and old books and history. The other is an engineer with his head focused on projects and his feet on the ground. Christophe Fargier and Jean-Christophe Gaven are impassioned and determined to design cosmetic creations entirely dedicated to the respect and well-being of the skin using natural raw materials. They devoted more than 5 years to researching, testing and developing formulas using precious ingredients.
As the faithful and unforgiving witness of our lives and emotions, our skin is responsible for an extraordinary combination of opposing functions. In return, it demands respect in the form of protection. Acting as a barrier and a passageway, a screen and a vessel, it is at once superficial and deep, external and internal. Both exposed to the world and intimate. Able to receive, absorb, capture, reject or drive back, it is an unconcealed expression of who we are, a reflection of our entangled body and soul. There is no cheating with skin, with our skin. OPPIDUM's sole raison d’être is to preserve, support, and fortify it.
OPPIDUM makes 100% natural cosmetics, organic certified, cruelty-free and vegan approved by PETA.
