If you want to know more...
Fresh Crème Ancienne is a couture, ageless complexion cream that provides long-lasting hydration while immediately smoothing the look of wrinkles. Handmade in a monastery, this ultra-effective formula is proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles in depth and length, providing a significant, anti-oxidative effect for 24 hours—delivering instant and long-lasting hydration. The face cream is hand-blended with meadowfoam seed oil, a unique fatty acid absorbed by the skin to provide the ultimate nourishment. A dose of vitamin E provides antioxidant protection against wrinkle-causing free radicals, while chamomile wax decreases dry spots, softens the skin, and imparts a light moisture-preserving veil.
What else you need to know:
"Inspired by the world's first cream, Crème Ancienne contains such fragile ingredients that each must be poured in a particular sequence at a specific dose at a determined temperature all in perfect balance—requirements that can only be met by hand. We turned to a monastery to hand-blend each jar because monks are an important part of the cream'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."—Lev Glazman and Alina Roytberg, Fresh Co-founders
