Why should I use cold cream in winter ?

Why should you replace your moisturising cream with cold cream when temperatures start to drop ?

organic cold cream moisturizing

Well, it’s one thing to keep your skin hydrated, but keeping it nourished and protected is another thing entirely, and that’s where cold cream comes in! Cold cream is a thickly textured moisturising treatment that soothes, repairs and protects the outer layer of skin, thanks to its special formula, which is enriched with fatty oils and beeswax.

The perfect cream to protect your skin against extreme climatic stressors

When it starts to get colder, it’s not a bad idea to switch out your moisturising cream with a cold cream. This is because it protects your skin better against harsh weather conditions, such as wind, rain and snow, which can cause the skin to redden, sting, tingle and crack (among other annoyances!)

Cold cream has been a treatment for ailing skin since time immemorial: in fact, the first known recipe for cold cream dates all the way back to the 2nd century. The concoction, which contained sweet almond oil, beeswax and rose water, is attributed to the ancient Greek physician Galen, and is still renowned for its protective and nutritional qualities. Nowadays, every beauty brand has its own formula for making cold cream – some are more natural than others, and some contain ingredients that raise a few eyebrows.


EQ’s product, however, is the crème de la crème of cold creams. Its formula is sensitive to even the most sensitive skin, and thanks to its list of highly nutritional active ingredients, including Resurrection Plant (Myrothamnus flabellifolia) extract, Kau Pe hydrosol, Tahitian Monoï with Edelweiss, Baobab oil and Fairtrade Shea butter, your skin will feel nourished and protected – ready for any bitingly cold winter day !

The extracts from the plant’s leaves and twigs are rich in protective molecules, and provide an oasis of freshness for dry and worn out skin. This extract gradually rehydrates and reinforces the skin’s cutaneous barriers, which helps the skin to regenerate and shield itself more quickly.

natural beeswax

White beeswax is listed in the European Pharmacopoeia as a necessary component of any cold cream – this active ingredient creates a film on the skin’s surface that serves as a protective barrier against threats from the outside.

Aloe Vera is a natural wonder plant. Remedies with Aloe Vera soothe and moisturise even the most dried-out skin, and it’s best to apply Aloe Vera daily, or after exposure to the sun.
