Foliée’s proprietary formulas are light, super-absorbent and gently fragranced. Our unique range of products can help in many ways including relaxing sore muscles and improving joint mobility, protecting and relieving dry skin, soothing the surface of the skin, moisturizing the skin and helping fight the signs of aging. They can also help relieve itching and repair dry skin. Each product is handcrafted in small batches to ensure quality and freshness. Made to be safe and effective, all Foliée products are non-GMO and formulated without artificial preservatives, chemicals and synthetics.
Foliée began as one woman’s solution to caring for her again parent. Following a series of falls, Josée Duranleau’s elderly mother severely injured her back and could not get adequate pain relief from a range of conventional and holistic options. Josée started looking into natural solutions to help her mother, which launched her research into the healing benefits of essential oils, the cannabis sativa plant and other botanicals. She created an all-natural plant-based cream to use on her mother. The results were shockingly effective. After 9 months of agony, and trying many different treatment options, the cream provided her mother almost immediate relief. This moved Josée to continue her research journey into plant powered health and wellness solutions and inspired her to create her own product line.
Josée’s passion for natural wellness and skincare comes from the hugely positive impact it has had in improving her mother’s life as well as her own. The creation of each product came from a need she recognized for herself or others in her life. Her desire to provide education on safe use and application of her products comes from knowing that research is now showing there are very legitimate medical and non-medical applications for hemp, Cannabis sativa and numerous other premium ingredients in her products and formulations.
An ardent advocate of natural health and holistic living, Josée is committed to offering exceptional quality, pure plant-based wellness and skincare products that are good for you and good for the planet.
