The FIGGI Story & Standards
Hello, I'm Jeanne
In 2015, I was the founder of a successful international human rights consultancy. My panic disorder derailed my life, plans, and what I thouht my future looked like. From the ashes of my Breaking - FIGGI was born.
Skin sensitivity is a common symptom of anxiety. As a result, my already sensitive skin went into overdrive. I wanted to feel like I was actively doing something to make the effect of my diagnosis better - even if only in a small way.
FIGGI Beauty is for sensitive souls, like me, with dry skin woes. I wanted this line to be truly effective, while also providing a luxury experience for sensitive goddesses. After completing my Advanced Certificate in Cosmetic Chemistry, I created products featuring my favorite ingredient: South African Rooibos.
Originally from South Africa, Jeanne now lives in Portugal with her family and two dogs. In her former life, she held a PhD in international criminal and humanitarian law, presented on key human rights issues worldwide, and consulted for 15 years in this field.
Derived from Jeanne's favorite fruit, the Fig, it embodies new beginnings, underscores our interconnectedness, and signifies our role as co-creators of our destinies.
Jeanne believes we all deserve to celebrate the goddess within. The logo represents our goddess energy, intertwined with nature and its healing properties.
Organic and cosmos-certified, green rooibos extract features in every FIGGI product. It only grows naturally in a specific part of the Cederberg mountains in South Africa.
It has a unique polyphenol structure not found in any other plant or species in the world. Its a powerful anti-inflammatory, reduces redness, calms and soothes the skin.
It has antimicrobial and antifungal properties wiht decades of scientific research to back it up. Jeanne refers to it as nature's gift to sensitive skin.
Our Calm Promise
Did you know most sensitive skincare still contain common irritants? Fragrance, essential oils and other nasties. We are really fragrance-free, not just "scent-free." Our range is free from perfume, linalool, and limonene.
FIGGI is also free from hidden fragrances like essential oils, which often naturally contain fragrances from plants and fruits they are derived from. The high potency of essential oils due to their concetrated nature can be aggravating to sensitive skin. Natural acids from fruit extracts can also cause irritation. FIGGI is free from all these irritiants.
Due to the nature of skincare formulations and the environment in which we keep them, they are the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and micro-organsisms.
We understand quality packaging is just as important as effective, luxurious formulas.
Our airless packaging keeps your product safe, prevents introduction of bacteria or exposure to micro-organisms.
