Our history

If you have arrived on this page, it is because you want to know a little more about us. Who is behind Nuvées? Why specialize in sun protection? What makes us so special?

The why ?

Awareness of the danger of UV rays often comes from personal experience. For our part, it all started with the announcement of an illness to Claudia, our co-founder.

“In 2010, I was told that I had Lupus, an autoimmune disease, to which each sunburn can significantly worsen the symptoms.

Every summer, I tried to protect myself effectively from the sun without using too much sunscreen, which I find sticky, which is harmful to the oceans and which would also be potentially dangerous for our health. So I was always looking for clothes to protect me from the sun, but I never managed to find any that protected me effectively and in which I felt beautiful and feminine."

Nuvées was born.

Our objective :

    We want to offer simple, effective and eco-responsible sun protection. A real alternative to sunscreen. (Even if we don't have the ambition to replace it entirely. It will still be useful for parts that are difficult to protect with clothing.)

    Our dream is to have a world:

    • without skin cancer
    • without premature aging skin with the spots & wrinkles that go with it
    • without worsening or development of certain diseases such as Lupus, Vitiligo or Psoriasis
    • without serious eye damage such as Cataract or the retinal degeneration
    • etc.

    Unfortunately for the moment we are not there… Skin cancer still affects approximately 80,000 people each year .

    At Nuvées, we are convinced that if sun protection becomes a pleasure, then many more people will protect themselves.

    Who are we ?

    Behind Nuvées, there are two founders Claudia and Nicolas.

    We are based in Annecy, by the lake, which allows us to test our products in all conditions.

    Behind Claudia and Nicolas there are many people who allowed Nuvées to be born and to exist: stylists, model makers, numerous suppliers, graphic designers, photographers...
