With partners such as Cut By Fred, Respire and On the Wild Side, as well as Monoprix, Save&Care intends to draw inspiration from the "Too Good To Go" model to tackle the challenges of waste. Manon Leroux (MBS 2015) founded Save&Care.

This alumna has traced her path through two renowned academic courses. She obtained her Master 2 in Marketing from Montpellier Business School in 2015, then consolidated her skills with a Mastère Spécialisé in Fashion & Luxury Management, specializing in Fashion Marketing, at the Institut Français de la Mode from 2018 to 2020.

Save&Care is much more than just a company; it's a mission, a vision for a more sustainable and equitable future. Inspired by the successful Too Good To Go model, Manon has created an innovative platform that limits waste while making quality cosmetics more accessible to consumers.

Manon's project selected by Média Challenges as one of the 100 startups to invest in

Thanks to Save & Care, brands and retailers can now avoid waste by putting their unsold products up for sale, while consumers benefit from access to quality cosmetics at reduced prices, while doing their bit for the environment. 🌍

This initiative not only meets a growing demand for skincare and hygiene products, but also embodies a strong commitment to sustainability and the circular economy in the beauty industry. 💧💚

With a clear vision and unwavering determination, Manon and her team at Save & Care are now aiming for new heights, with the ambitious goal of achieving sales of 500,000 euros by 2025. 📈

Interviewed by Challenges media, she explains: "In times of inflation, we democratize access to quality cosmetics with discounts of -34%, and up to -60% when the expiration date approaches". Find out more here.
