The little story of Venus & Gaia
Venus and Gaia are not only two Greco-Roman goddesses, they are also the name of the beautiful silk accessories brand. Venus, goddess of beauty and love, and Gaia, deity of harmony with nature, are the sources of inspiration for the founder. These two strong women symbolize the values on which the brand is based, such as love, beauty and union with nature, and greatness. It was in 2018, after a night spent with a silk pillow, that Clara Vilarem, the founder, decided to create her own silk beauty tools.
Venus & Gaia silk
But then why silk? Because it has many qualities for the skin and hair. Silk is a material that regenerates the skin and hair from within by boosting collagen production. Non-absorbent, it does not dehydrate the skin or the hair during sleep. More hygienic than cotton, a silk pillowcase is perfect for skin that has imperfections because it is antibacterial and prevents the appearance of inflammation. In addition, silk marks the face less and prevents the formation of knots in the hair. Finally, silk is the best weapon for quality sleep. Indeed, it prevents the proliferation of microbes, remains fresh all night long and is hypoallergenic: it relieves people with colds or asthma by allowing them to breathe properly.
Venus & Gaia, a committed brand
Silk, yes, but not just any silk. The silk of the brand's beauty tools is 100% mulberry silk. It is resistant, thick and of high quality. It comes from a small agricultural cooperative located in China (the silk market has not yet conquered France and Europe). Venus & Gaia is part of the "1% For your Planet" program, an organization that collects funds to donate to environmental associations. In addition to its ecological commitment, the brand pays great attention to the quality of the silk used to make its products. It is certified by the OEKO Standard 100®, a European standard certifying the absence of toxic substances. In addition, the company has obtained the GOTS(Global Organic Textile Standard) label, which guarantees ethical and responsible manufacturing conditions, both from an environmental and human point of view.
