Designed to promote the lifestyle of Monaco throughout the world and to celebrate women who strive for excellence and authenticity, the Opale collection consists entirely of natural and organic ingredients.
During his promenades through the splendid and world famous Exotic Garden of Monaco and the fragrance-filled paths of the Princess Grace Rose Garden, cosmetologist Marc Fauchart had a dream. Creating a line of cosmetic products which would be a perfect balance, nature, luxury and technology, just like the Principality itself. 30 years of experience with the most prestigious international cosmetic brands helped him turn this dream into a vision.
In the late 80s, Marc Fauchart surrounded himself with the best specialists and researchers from the Principality and developed a unique laboratory in the heart of Monaco. Marc had a plan: explore the millennia-old secrets hidden within the splendour and richness of the local vegetal life to develop a range of sophisticated natural cosmetics to help fight skin ageing. Fifteen years of research and development led to the creation of a unique collection of cosmetic products that redefined nature and luxury. His vision became reality: Opale Monaco.
Designed to promote the lifestyle of Monaco throughout the world and to celebrate women who strive for excellence and authenticity, the Opale collection consists entirely of natural and organic ingredients. Citrus fruits, rosewood, bourbon geranium, raspberry, pomegranate, rose hip. The Opale Monaco laboratories have extracted the countless benefits, delicate textures and enchanting fragrances of these marvellous resources.

Proven and shared expertise
Created in Monaco in 1997, the Opale laboratories initially applied their cosmetic expertise to work for prestigious, internationally renowned brands such as Helena Rubinstein, Lancôme, Vichy and Guerlain as well as Biotherm and Lancaster, two of the leading cosmetics companies of Monaco.
Birth of the first natural luxury cosmetics
Driven by a deep desire to create his own brand reflecting the glamorous and environmentally responsible image of Monaco, Marc Fauchart quickly deployed, within his own laboratories, an R&D department specifically devoted to creating products at the crossroads of luxury and nature. Over the years, this team of experts developed a variety of innovative and exclusive cosmetic formulas that now make up the premiere Opale collection.
A constantly evolving collection
Serums, skin care treatments, body milks, gels, mists, body nectars, creams. The Opale laboratories have developed a collection of unique products that provide a variety of benefits and pleasures. Each Opale product is made exclusively from natural ingredients with proven benefits such as alfalfa extract, essential oils or floral waters. Inspired by the wealth of possibilities that arise from combining their expertise with natural resources, Opale’s experts are constantly working to create new products that will enrich the collection over time. Some of our revolutionary formulas, elaborated behind the closed doors of our Laboratories, have allowed the creation of ground breaking products such as Eclat d’Opale, which fight instantly the wrinkles and ageing marks of the skin. Opale Laboratoires Monaco will soon be unveiling a fully natural line of whitening skincare products.
Alfalfa is a unique complete nutrient which was referred to as “a result of all food” by ancient Arab civilisations. Exceptionally rich in minerals, the extract of organic Alfalfa has all the cutaneous virtues of retinol, without its undesired side effects (irritation, instability in light, heat and oxygen). As a result, it significantly stimulates the synthesis of collagen and inhibits the activity of enzymes responsible for its deterioration. By preserving the extracellular structure of tissue and smoothing cutaneous microgrooves, it visibly reduces signs of skin ageing.
Produced naturally by our body, hyaluronic acid fills the spaces between the skin's elastin and collagen fibres and acts as a water reservoir for our tissue. Over time, its effectiveness is modified resulting in a loss of suppleness and tone, dehydration and, as a result, the appearance of wrinkles. In order to compensate for this inevitable imbalance, our laboratories use non-toxic and non-irritant natural hyaluronic acid which acts by filling wrinkles and protecting the skin from external factors.
This active ingredient from an organic crop is a purified fraction of natural sugars, the main property of which is to form a viscoelastic film on the skin with a visible and immediate tightening effect. Opale’s laboratories have integrated it into some of our cosmetics in order to tighten, sculpt and smooth the skin in an exceptional and natural manner.
Opale’s choice: Lactic Acid, Citric Acid, Salicylic Acid, Sorbic Acid.Fruit acids belong to the Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHA) group, of which the benefits for the skin have been recognised for many years. They offer various properties, including favouring the elimination of dead skin cells and they activate cell renewal, thus helping to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles, moisturise the skin and regenerate tissue elastin and collagen.
