About the Product
A rich scrub packed with grains promoting “infinite sensations”, which generously spreads out, whitened on damp skin, then perfectly rinses off. It will leave you with detoxified, radiant and ultra-satiny skin and no feeling of oiliness. A new take on exfoliation.
People have been using honey since the dawn of time, and it has always had a special character and status. Olympians drink ambrosia – a mixture of milk and honey. Since ancient times, Romans, Greeks and Egyptians have been eating honey and using it to treat wounds and burns and make the skin more beautiful. We have always been aware of its regenerating and antiseptic properties, but they are now also scientifically recognized.
It can be used pure or as an extract in cosmetics to make the most of its numerous detoxifying, softening and regenerating properties and the vitamins, minerals and amino acids it contains.
The Argan tree, endemic to south Morocco, plays a key ecological role in protecting the area from desertification and soil erosion. It produces an edible oil when its fruit is roasted, or a cosmetic plant oil if it is extracted by first cold pressing. Argan oil benefits from a PGI (Protected Geographical Indication) guarantee label which confirms its origin. In order to preserve its main active ingredients and pleasant taste, it must not be exposed to heat.
The economic sector for this oil is set apart by the fact that it involves women, who are often in a precarious situation. They harvest the Argan, then produce this oil for small communities.
It is appreciated in cosmetics for its unique components, in particular omega 6 and 9, vitamin E and squalene. Its polyunsaturated fatty acids give it anti-aging and antioxidant properties which Berber women had intuitively known for centuries. Argan oil rebuilds the cutaneous barrier, limits skin water loss and increases collagen synthesis.
We also appreciate the shell of the stone – a residue from the manufacture of the oil – which, when dried and reduced to a powder, becomes an effective natural exfoliator.
Paillettes D' Ambre
This note is the fruit of a spicy composition, pushed to the extreme so you can really feel its strength… but subtle nonetheless. Benzoin, a real tree resin, preserves the soft, milky nuances. It settles on a calm, enveloping musk and warm, sensual and slightly powdery amber. The ensemble is structured by a sweet cinnamon base note and myrrh which might remind you of frankincense. This resin adopts an aromatic vibe, similar to moss. The creation becomes unforgettable, like our body care products which have adopted it.
