What makes SLA Paris so ethical, professional and so easy to apply?

DESIGNED BY A PRO ARTIST – SLA Paris is designed and manufactured by the “Professor”of makeup artistry Serge Louis Alvarez. Serge Louis Alvarez has had an incredible career in the Professional Makeup industry, including being the Director of the Paris Opera and Director of the Paris Theatre, and working with famous Fashion Designers such Paco Rabanne. He designed his first products in 1984 and opened his public company SLA Creation in 1992.

MADE IN FRANCE – SLA Paris is formulated and manufactured in our own laboratory and facility in Valence in the South of France.  Each and everyone of our products are innovative and unique!  Our manufacturing facility in Valence (South France) is 3000m2 and includes are own laboratory where are formulas are designed.

CRUELTY FREE – Our products are NOT tested on animals.

NATURAL FORMULATIONS – Our products are paraben free, phenoxyethanol free and in some cases are also comprised of organic ingredients.

12 STEPS OF MAKEUP – Every product box is numbered from 1-12 in the order that you would apply the products in a makeup application.  This makes for a very easy reference when you first use this range.

ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY – SLA Paris is releasing refillable packaging where possible across the range (eye shadows and powders initially) which is both better for the environment with less plastic in landfill but also better economically speaking for the consumer.

MICRONISATION AWARD – In 2013 SLA Paris was awarded with the Prix H.Pierantoni de L’Innovation (Innovation Award) for the exclusive Micronisation System that they created. Our powders are now 10 times finer than any other powder manufactured by conventional methods. In 2014 SLA Paris was awarded with the Prix H.Pierantoni de L’Innovation (Innovation Award) again for developing a QR Code system per product (with application and training information) that was found inside every packaged product.

HIGH PIGMENTATION – Our pigment level is between 50-60%

ON TREND – We produce 2 fashion/colour stories each year which always include the release of new products. We also release 4 seasonal collection bags per year which are incased in gorgeous cosmetic bags and gift boxed beautifully!
