Awarded at the Victoires de la Beauté 2020-2021
The Fontainebleau Sand Scrub was tested and approved by a jury of 70 consumers and was awarded the Victory of beauty prize!
The Scrub is inspired by the recipe for Cucumber Salve. It is formulated from white cucumbers from Bonneuil, an extinct species, specially reintroduced to the King's Garden in Versailles for the formulation of Mademoiselle Saint Germain skincare products. The cucumbers from the Potager du Roi are grown by hand, respecting the environment and according to the principle of agroecology.
The Bonneuil white cucumber extract is unique because it has been specifically developed to adapt to the scrub formula. Its high concentration of active ingredients (twice as concentrated as with an ordinary plant) makes it a rare quality extract.
Product tested under dermatological control by a certified independent body:
- 100% find that the scrub gently exfoliates
- 100% have more supple skin
- 100% of women do not have irritated skin after using the Scrub
Tested on 10 consumers for 21 days.
Evaluated and approved by a jury of 70 consumers as part of the Victoires de la Beauté 2020-2021.

How to use it
A true 2-in-1 scrub, the Scrub can be used as an exfoliant or a moisturizing mask. Once or twice a week, apply a few dabs of Scrub to the skin of the face and neck, avoiding the eyes. Leave on for 1 to 2 minutes, then massage gently in circular motions. On contact with the skin, the gel-like texture forms a very moisturizing and fresh mask while the grains of sand gently exfoliate, smoothing and refining the skin texture. Rinse thoroughly with clear water.For an optimal skin care ritual, follow with a day cream or night care.
