A precious oil treatment hand-blended in a monastery that smoothes the complexion and provides supreme nourishment.


  • 50ml

Product Details

Elixir Ancien smoothes the complexion and provides supreme nourishment. Blended by hand in a monastery, these natural oils absorb quickly to deliver the most precious ingredients in their purest forms. These oils must be poured in a particular sequence at a determined temperature—requirements that can only be met by hand. Fresh turned to a monastery to hand-blend each bottle because monks are an important part of Elixir Ancien’s heritage. Historically, if a formula was not produced by a monk, it was considered witchcraft. Without them, the original formula would not exist today.

The Story of Creme Ancienne Ultimate Nourishing Honey Mask

“For centuries, monks have used natural ingredients to create effective remedies. We sourced superior honey made from the Buckfast Bee, a hybrid species selected for only the best qualities developed by Brother Adam in the early 1900s at a monastery in England. This exceptional treatment offers an experience and results like none other and is truly a testament to the monks’ scientific expertise.”
