In Greek mythology, the almond tree represented youthfulness, fragility and virginal grace. Up until the beginning of the century, the almond tree was one of the symbols of the Alpes de Haute-Provence, just like lavender and the olive tree. During early spring, the almond tree is covered in delicate white flowers, but we must wait until October for the blossoms to transform into fruit.
The firm ivory nut, which grows protected in a beautiful soft green velvet shell, is very much appreciated for its cosmetic properties. It moisturises, nourishes, smoothes and firms the skin, and these properties in combination make the new firming almond body care range effective and delightful to use.
