Its time-honored formula was inspired by the world’s first emulsion-based cream created by Claude Galen in the 2nd century A.D., who used it to swiftly heal gladiator’s wounds.
The ultimate in age-delay for the delicate eye area, this exclusive formula is proven to visibly reduce the signs of aging, diminish puffiness and under-eye circles, and provide supreme nourishment Inspired by the world’s first cream created to heal gladiator's wounds, Crème Ancienne Eye Cream is made entirely by hand in a monastery. Why by hand? The cream contains fragile ingredients that must each be poured in a particular sequence at a specific dose and at a determined temperature all in perfect balance, requirements that can only be met by hand. Fresh turned to monasteries to meet these requirements because they 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 recipe would not exist today. The precious formula includes moisturizing meadowfoam seed oil to hydrate and smooth, antioxidant-rich seabuckthorn berry oil to protect and restore, and anti-inflammatory beeswax to soothe and soften.
