We designed a new house style: the black and white character of our habit, by which we are immediately recognized, was a guiding principle and holds a central place.
We received the French quality logo “Monastic,” awarded to monastic communities which give form to their economic endeavors in an authentic manner, with monastic values holding a primary place. Because of this, we can guarantee that the new products are truly monastic products.
The new products encompass three lines: a lavender line; an aloë vera line; and a line of traditional favorites. All are sold in small bottles and one-liter refill packages.
The pearl of the project is a completely new product which we have kept secret.
Today we are launching a new shampoo on the market, with very original Trappist characteristics. We present to you a Trappist Beer Shampoo made with 10% Westmalle Dubbel. Traditionally, beer was always brewed by women; it was part of their housework. In the course of the centuries, the monks have taken over this work; and now the sisters want to tie back in to this lovely tradition in an original way by using Trappist beer to make shampoo. We had the Meurice Institute ( a specialized institute in Brussels) do a study for us, and they provided a scientifically substantiated file with all the benefits beer provides for skin and hair – it's all about the polyphenols in beer, the trace elements, the minerals, and the vitamins. The shampoo has a light conditioning effect and is really a delight to use. It's also lightly perfumed, so you don't feel like you've just washed your hair with beer!
