A FRENCH ORGANIC COSMETICS BRAND
“Since childhood, I have always looked for natural healing methods’’
I have been passionate about natural cosmetics since my time on the French national ski team. In order to stay healthy and at the top of my game, I used aromatherapy and educated myself in the subject of CLEAN cosmetics by joining forces with a French laboratory, pioneers at the time in developing 100% natural products without exotic ingredients.
Raphaëlle Monod Sjöström World Ski Champion
Our story goes back to when I was competing in the World Ski Championships….
Frequent anti-doping controls prevented me, as a high-level athlete, from using traditional medicines. For example, a simple cough syrup could cause a positive anti-doping test. So naturally, I turned to aromatherapy and natural healing methods in order to relieve myself of the little ailments of everyday life. For example, my knee rehabilitation was done in sulfur-rich clay baths in Turkey.

After years of being exposed to the cold, wind, and sun, my skin developed a sensitivity and intolerance to synthetic ingredients. I realized that my cosmetic routines were causing my body to react. It was then, that I started to develop my first homemade formulas.
Both my training with some of the greatest Swiss botanists and my passion for the mountains led to the creation, in 2010, of my own DIY workshop ‘’SNÖ Beauty Lab’’ located in Talloires by Lake Annecy. My goal with ‘’SNÖ Beauty Lab’’ has been to coach people on how to create their own natural treatments.
SNÖ Eternelle was born from a personal mission- to develop a 100% natural and organic solution that is essential for the care of sensitive skin. In addition to my values of self-discipline and respect, mastering the virtues of plants and incorporating that into my brand, is a legacy from my years of competing..

OUR FAMILY HISTORY
Snö is also a story of a family.
My husband, Christoffer Sjöström, is the artist behind the magnificent mountain photos that represent the identity of Snö Eternelle.
Baptiste, our 21-year old son, is passionate about skiing and also shares with us the love for the mountains. He helps us on the audiovisual side by creating powerful content and teasers.
Our daughters, Juliette and Janelle, make me wonder about the future of our skin and how I want to do everything that I can in my power to protect it from the synthetic ingredients that we find in most of our daily cosmetics.
