Meadowfoam Seed Oil
Meadowfoam seed oil possesses exceptional moisturizing, nourishing, smoothing, and softening properties that keep skin supremely soft and supple. The precious oil is known for its composition of fatty acids that makes it highly emollient without being too heavy. The luxurious oil penetrates the skin with ease and helps to slow transepidermal water loss.
“With Crème Ancienne, I was looking to create a formula that is extra rich and intensely nourishing. While doing research, I came across an ancient book that contained the formula for the world’s first healing cream, which was developed by Claudius Galenus, a 2nd century influential scientist and physician who attended to gladiators’ wounds. It was just what I was looking for: the right balance of oils and waxes with an unusually small amount of water. We preserved this exceptional formula and managed to refine it even further by adding the finest oils and exquisite floral waxes available today, including meadowfoam seed oil.”
