  • Cérat des Alpes

    Dating back to Antiquity, Cérat de Galien is one of the oldest formulas used in European cosmetics.

    “Cérat des Alpes”: France Bourély-Jaczynski, PhD in Pharmaceutical Sciences (Paris, France), Masters in Biology (Berkeley, USA) reformulated cérat de Galien cream for her daughter Lily, respecting the proportions but changing the ingredients. Sodium borate was replaced by a traditional derivative of vinegar, rosewater by natural mineral water captured at an altitude of 1800 metres in the heart of the Swiss Alps, and sweet almond oil by jojoba oil, primrose and borage, which are richer in essential fatty acids.

    Several pharmaceutical brands on the market use the generic term “cold cream” to describe a similar preparation.
