(*) Patent N° FR 3 011 742 - WO 2015/052643
Formulation ID: SE0145B

This balm is ideal for body treatment thanks to its rich texture. NG Shea Unsaponifiable™ is restoring the barrier function and improving the moisture level. Known for their respective moisturising and antioxidant virtues, Crodarom® Banana Flower EC and Phytofleur™ Anthurium add a touch of tropical good vibes to the formula. To make this balm texture with soft finish, the emulsifier Incroquat™ Behenyl TMS 50 allows stabilisation and increases the conditioning properties with a synergy of bodying agents like Crodamol™ CP and Crodacol™ CS90. Crodamol™ GTIS contributes to the rich and lubricity feel. This nourishing balm is designed to strengthen and repair the skin, leaving it incredibly regenerated to offer comfort.
