Born of an appreciation of simplicity - a core value for Le Couvent - age-old recipes using herbs from Le Couvent des Minimes' medicinal herb garden have given rise to six body and face treatments carefully formulated for delicate skin.
100% vegan and 100% hypoallergenic.
GALEN COLD CREAM REVISITED
The purest comfort and care
Originally made with beeswax and sweet almond oil, Galen's Cerate (otherwise known as Cold Cream) is a type of ointment invented in the Second Century by the Greek Physician Galen. The fact that hundreds of years later its reputation holds firm is a testament to its soft texture and freshness. Faithful to the essence of the original recipe, Le Couvent has updated the formula by replacing the traditional beeswax with Shea Butter to ensure it is 100% vegan.
Up to 98% Ingredients of Natural Origin.
No Sulphates – No Parabens – No Silicones
