HERITAGE: Claudius Galenus, better known as Galen of Pergamon, established the ideal proportions for a cream based on beeswax, then called Galen’s wax. The restorative formula was used to repair skin and heal flesh wounds. Today, this precursor to the modern Cold Cream is reinterpreted by Le Couvent des Minimes to offer comfort and care to dry, delicate skin. Loving Care Body Balm features an icon of a mother holding her child, an homage to the unconditional love that filled the convent in the era of the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary, now channeled through Le Couvent des Minimes’ nourishing skincare recipe for the whole family.
ABOUT LE COUVENT DES MINIMES: 400 years ago, a convent was built in the village of Mane in the South of France to shelter the botanist monks of the Minims, who used their considerable knowledge of plants to tend a garden of curative herbs and flowers. Centuries later, the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary continued the original convention of cultivating beneficial ingredients to help strengthen and restore those in need through food recipes. This emphasis on nourishing and reparative care through nature inspired Le Couvent des Minimes’ own simple yet powerful natural care recipes, the basis of a collection of efficacious formulas that draw on the heritage and traditions of the convent of Mane. The rich, plant-based range is formulated with the highest quality botanicals, offering natural skincare solutions in lush fragrances and beautiful textures. From the monastic heritage of the brand to the garden ingredients it incorporates, Le Couvent des Minimes offers simplicity and authenticity for the modern age.
