This iceberg balm features an amazing shape-memory texture that breaks into pieces when taking it into your fingers. This unique texture is provided by the special combination of Volarest™ FL, Arlacel™ LC and Tween™ 60. Crodamol™ AB imparts a light skin feel without any drying effect. The bio-harmonical peptide Crystalide™ promotes a crystal skin and a glassy complexion, while bio-mimetic peptide Matrixyl® Morphomics™ fights against wrinkle appearance. A touch of cocooning that comforts the senses is added with Crodarom™ Delice Extreme, a natural extract of pecan nut and maple syrup. Add fun to your morning routine with this incredible iceberg balm that will erase the signs of ageing and leaves your skin dewy and luminous, from the inside.
