The benefits of maple syrup for the skin
Our climate: a creator of exceptional plants
Our workshop is located in Canada, a country where mountains, freezing winters and boreal forests meet.
This is why since I launched the line, local ingredients from Canada have always inspired me in the creation of my products. The resilience of plants to find various survival mechanisms makes them ingredients of exceptional quality, rich in antioxidants, vitamins and trace elements.
Maple syrup in cosmetics?
Hey yes! Among the many ingredients that the boreal forest can offer us, maple syrup is the very first local raw material that I integrated into my products 10 years ago.
The properties of maple for the skin are numerous. So here are a few:
As maple syrup is a sugar concentrate, it acts as a moisturizing active ingredient for the skin and thus helps to retain water in the skin for a longer period of time.
Maple syrup is rich in vitamin B1 and vitamin B2, which helps strengthen and tone the structure of the skin.
Maple syrup contains no less than 65 different polyphenols that act against premature aging of the skin.
Do-it-yourself moisturizing face mask
- 3 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 1 tablespoon of plain (or vegan) yogurt
- 1 tablespoon of oat flour
Mix the 3 ingredients together.
Since not all flours have the same grain size, add a little more oatmeal if the mixture is too liquid for your taste or a little maple syrup if the mixture is too thick.
Apply to clean skin and leave on for 10 minutes.
With your hands, rub the mask on the skin to exfoliate dead skin and rinse with warm water.
Did you know that the maple syrup we use comes from my family? My aunt and uncle from Ferme Picady produce the best maple syrup the traditional way.

How to use it well?
As this cream is concentrated, a small amount of product is enough. Apply all over the body or on dry areas and massage in with your hands. It is ideal as a cream for the body, hands and feet.
Can be used daily or as needed. This cream is particularly effective in winter for clients with easily dehydrated skin.
Have a good day beautiful! xx
