Comment l’aventure Écrin de Fleur a commencé
Who we are
Having saved my own skin, I wanted to save the skin of others!
Once upon a time, an Italian entrepreneur of Chinese origin fell in love with Provence. That entrepreneur is me, David Yin. In the summer of 2015, I had planned to show my family around Provence and rented a lovely mas in Aix-en-Provence. Laurence, my Breton colleague, was my French guide. She had moved to the Netherlands just like me, and yet, she could not stop talking about her native country:
In China, I worked for 15 years in very polluted areas. Thus, my skin became very sensitive to chemical additives and pollution. These permanent skin problems pushed me to leave my native country for Europe in order to be closer to nature.
Since then, I have become very demanding in my daily life: no more eating foods full of chemicals or using harmful personal hygiene products. No more plastic, and long live noble and natural materials ! But even though the move to the Netherlands in 2012 with my family saved my skin, which is now less irritable, it still suffered in winter.
The discovery of these organic Provencal soaps solved the problem completely, once and for all! I couldn't believe it: my skin no longer dried out or itched during the long winter months! The explanation is simple: all the additives (Parabens, SLS, EDTA, BHT, PEG...) used in commercial hygiene products irritate and dry out the skin. But traditionally designed French soaps are free of them.
A summary of my professional background
15 years of experience in the ceramic tile export sector, including 10 years in China. Extensive and international experience in sourcing, development and quality control, which is currently very useful for the selection of the best French artisanal producers. My ceramic business is still active in Italy. I share my professional life between Milan and Provence. Écrin de Fleurs was created in December 2017
