  • Meadowfoam seed oil helps to moisturize, nourish, smooth, and soften. Native to the Pacific Coast in Willamette Valley, Oregon, it is known for its fatty acid composition that penetrates the skin with ease without being too heavy.
  • Chamomile wax is an emollient that works as a protective barrier to help decrease dry spots while soothing and softening skin.
  • Rosewater is notable for its soothing, cooling, balancing properties and for calming the skin.

Why is Crème Ancienne handmade?

Because the heating temperatures of oil and wax are extremely challenging to control, our co-founder Lev Glazman turned to a monastery to make the cream by hand in small batches. Each ingredient is poured in a particular order and at a determined temperature to get the one-of-a-kind texture you see today.

What’s the difference between Crème Ancienne and Crème Ancienne Soft Cream?

The texture! Crème Ancienne has a nourishing, rich smoothness to it, whereas the soft cream delivers nourishment in a lightweight, whipped texture.
