Cade essential oil, which has a finer scent than the dry-distilled oil, is obtained by steam distillation. It has antiseptic, anti-dandruff and exfoliating properties and is widely used in hair products due to its purifying and corrective qualities. It is also used in skincare products to protect the face and hands from the wind and sun.
The essential oil, obtained by steam distillation of the flowering heads, naturally combats skin aging. It has an anti-free radical action, which protects cellular membranes against aging. It stimulates collagen production, thus improving skin firmness. Lastly, it improves skin microcirculation, boosting cell renewal. The floral water, which is also a produce of distillation, is used in cleansing products as it is more gentle and refreshing.
We use oak root extract to make soothing and protective products. This extract has antioxidant properties and acts on the mechanisms responsible for inflammation.
Rosemary is rich in an essential oil with antiseptic, antioxidant, purifying, relaxing and muscle-relaxing properties. It is also a deodorant. For fragile, oil-prone skin, rosemary helps to regulate sebum production
The distilled parts are the wood and the roots. The essential oil is astringent and tonic. It leaves a woody, warm and spicy scent on the skin.
Incorporated into L'Occitane formulas, shea butter is an ideal balm for dry and dehydrated skin. Its nourishing and protective properties have been revealed. It contains insaponifiables, to boost cell renewal and repair the hydrolipid film, for softer, more elastic and comfortable skin. It acts like a barrier for the skin and limits water loss, thus maintaining an optimal level of moisture. For an oil version and higher proportion of unsaponifiable matter, shea butter olein is used. Finally, in soaps, the butter can be saponified to make it exceptionally soft and gentle.
The sap is rich in trace elements and minerals - nutritional elements necessary for the skin. It helps to combat skin sagging and invigorate the skin.
How to use product
Apply to face and neck after shaving, paying close attention to irritated areas. May also be applied at night to moisturize, relieve and soothe skin, softening skin and beard for a gentler shave the following morning. Use with: Cade Shaving Cream or, for acne-prone skin, Cade Shaving Gel.
I gifted this product to my husband. It moisturizes the skin nicely and keeps it really soft and supple. I would recommend it to everyone.

My husband is the most basic of men; he does not use special products, and thinks spending money on anything upscale is crazy - but he LOVES this product and thinks it is worth every penny. He did try other brands (especially those that cost less!) and said there was no comparison. #1 stocking stuffer every year!
