Nuxe is all about the wonderful effects plants have on the skin. It has remained a family business spearheaded by Aliza Jabes who bought the company from her father, a research pharmacist, 20 years ago. They are an independent company, with independent labs. The products are tested on children over 3 years of age (who said child labor was a bad thing?) and their sleb fans include Monica Bellucci, Vanessa Paradis and Eva Herzigova.
