About us

Your skin is a sponge - Approximately 60% of what you put on your skin gets absorbed into your body. So you want skin care products that are safe and natural, but also powerful enough to get visible results. Unfortunately, most natural skin care products have low concentrations of active ingredients and lack the potency to provide results, while most professional strength skin care is loaded with dangerous parabens, synthetics and harsh chemicals that are added to give them a longer shelf life.

With Vasseur Skincare, you don’t have to choose between safety and effectiveness. We are the only skin care line in the world that is freshly made for maximum effectiveness, premium quality and 100% safe and healthy for your skin!

    • Our products are ingredient driven and highly concentrated for maximum effectiveness. We source only the highest quality ingredients and do not dilute our products with added water or fillers.
    • Our products are freshly made by hand and never sit on a shelf. Using living, fresh skin care is the best way to benefit from its full concentration of vitamins and antioxidants.
    • Our products are free of parabens, chemical preservatives, toxins, synthenic fillers.
    • Our products are 100% cruelty free and never tested on animals. 

Our Fresh Approach

Using living, fresh skin care is the only way to benefit from its full concentration of antioxidants and vitamins in that neutralize free radicals. Here’s why: our cells respond best to skin care ingredients that are enzymatically alive; when ingredients are alive they are able to activate the skin better and penetrate the epidermal layers of the skin on a much deeper level.

In order to keep the ingredients living, heating and chemical preservatives are not an option. Most skin care on the market, however, is designed to have a shelf live for 2-5 years, and thus heating, stabilizers and aggressive preservatives are required to extend their shelf-life.

The negative impact on the product is that most of the beneficial nutrients you are paying for are destroyed. And studies show that the longer skin care sits on the shelf, the more inactive its ingredients become. Worse, the oils can become rancid and filled with free radicals that actually accelerate the aging process of your skin!

So, don’t waste your hard earned money on dead skin care. Vasseur Skincare is alive and freshly made without the harsh chemical preservatives, stabilizers and parabens. And with our new, premium airless packaging our products retain their maximum effectiveness for up to one year. 

About Founder Melanie Vasseur

Melanie Vasseur, a cosmetic chemist and esthetician, is a leading authority on the science of skin care and has appeared on television and radio shows worldwide. A featured speaker at national trade shows such as the International Esthetics Cosmetics and Spa Conference, Melanie is also regular columnist for Dermascope, American Spa, Spa Management, Skin Deep, and other top beauty publications. She continues to contribute to the spa and skin care field as a faculty member teaching advanced skin care education to doctors, estheticians, cosmetologists, and nurses.

Melanie dealt with stubborn acne and suffered from emotional scars since age 11. She unsuccessfully tried conventional oral and topical medications prescribed by dermatologists. Regular facials helped her temporarily. At 27, the blemishes reappeared and although skin care science had advanced, Retin A and antibiotics had irritating effects and her skin spots remained.

Melanie became frustrated by traditional approaches and was determined to clear her acne. A nutrition educator at the time, she began to create her own all-natural, science-based skin care treatments. Within a short period of time, her skin showed remarkable improvements, so much so that her students wanted to know her secret – and try whatever she was using! It marked the beginning of Vasseur Skincare and now over 25 years later, Melanie’s exclusive, freshly made and chemical-free products have produced amazing results for thousands of devoted users!
