Water is the best friend of your beauty. It comes in the composition of all your care in their different forms: moisturizing creams, sprays, make-up removers or scented waters. Discover all its secrets and draw its benefits.

Moisturizing creams

A subtle alliance of water and oil

Their composition is inspired by the film of water and fatty substances that covers the skin naturally. They contain an aqueous part and an oily part. Oil - of animal or vegetable origin - prevents water from evaporating. The more consistent a cream is, the higher its fat content and the less water it contains.

With care assets

Today, most treatments are waterier than oil to achieve a lighter texture that penetrates better. Water is the first ingredient in the list and the oil content varies from 15% to 30%.

Lanolin, glycerine, hyaluronic acid - already present in the skin -, urea, jojoba oil, almond oil, shea butter are the main active ingredients of our moisturizing creams.

Fresh waters

A light and fragrant note

The perfumes are composed of oily scented extracts, alcohol and demineralised water. The concentration of scented extracts is variable.

  • the eau de parfum contains 12%
  • toilet water, 7%
  • cologne, from 4% to 6%
  • fresh water, 4%.

Their notes are often those of citrus fruits and light flowers. Be careful, the alcohol they contain can cause brown spots on the skin under the effect of the sun.

Sprays and makeup removers

Floral waters: a cascade of freshness

Floral water is obtained by distilling water vapor on vegetable substances (leaves, flowers). The light scent of the floral waters makes their use very pleasant. They are ideal for perfecting make-up removal, soothing, toning and refreshing the skin. You can spray them directly on your face or soak cotton for local application.

Cleansing gels: for water enthusiasts

They contain 80% to 90% purified water and washing agents. The latter have a hydrophobic part (do not like water) that binds to sebum and makeup and another hydrophilic (like water) that causes impurities. You can then rinse or not. For foaming gels, the principle is the same but rinsing is necessary.
