Our cream composition

What they don’t tell you about industrial creams


It's really simple to use. Our solid cream melts when in contact with skin (more precisely the heat of your skin), just rub it between your hands and gently apply it to your skin or your hair. Since our cream is particularly concentrated, a small quantity is sufficient, even for dry skins.

Do not leave the cream in a heated room, in contact with water, near the radiator, or in direct sunlight, it may soften or melt. You can place it in a pouch, a small wooden holder, or even in a small glass jar.

These are different ways you can use our cream: 

Face and body : on clean skin, preferably when you just finished your bath or shower, when your skin is still a little warm, slide the cream bar gently on your skin, then rub it in.

For babies : hold the cream bar in your hands and wait until it has softened a little, then gently rub the cream that has stayed on your hands on your babies nappy area or skin.

After shaving, hair removal, or scrub : spread a little bit of cream on the shaved area to sooth your skin. 

After sun : if the skin is very burnt but not painful, melt a small amount of cream in a Bain Marie and add a little olive oil. When the mix is at room temperature, apply on the area just like oil. Please note that this isn't sun protection against UVs.

For nails : to fortify your nails, feed and protect them, just massage your nails and cuticles delicately with our cream.

As a bath ball : in a hot bath, put a little piece of the cream bar and let it melt. Your bath water will moisturise your skin and protect it.

For hands : apply the cream on the back of the hand and on each finger and rub your hands.

Lip balm : apply the cream like a lip stick. Personally, we always keep a little piece in a pouch in our bag or our ski jacket.

Hair wax and hair care : gently put the cream on your hair to style it the way you want. The more you put in and the shinier they’ll become.

Care for hair ends : to nourish your hair, apply some cream on the tips of your hair for 10 or 20 minutes or even a whole night before your shampoo. This will avoid split ends and prevent your hair getting dry.

As a beard wax or balm : gently put some cream on your beard and rub it in. It will protect and nourish your beard. It will also help you comb your hair.

As a massage oil : melt a piece of cream with vegetable oil (the one that suits you best), then rub it on your body.

A couple of frequently asked questions by our customers

How can the creme bar or half-bar be sliced?

The cream bar can be delicately cut with bread knife (or a guitar string). You can cut the half-bar into 2 or 3 pieces and the bar into 4 or 5 pieces.

How to store the cream?

To store the cream, we recommend putting it in a sterilised hermetic glass jar, a jam jar type for example, so that it doesn’t dry out and harden.

How to use the cream?

For an easier use of our cream, you have to rub it between your hands for a few seconds. When it starts to melt, you can apply it on the area needed or directly with your hands.
