A line of Inuit cosmetics

They combine the effects of algae and those of natural extracts of Arctic plants. The first Inuit cosmetics come from Nunavik, an autonomous territory which comprises the northern third of the province of Quebec, and whose vast majority of the 11,000 inhabitants are Inuit.

However nearly 65 formulations have already been developed and a men’s line is announced in January 2011.
