Fresia Body Wash
Body wash with mild surfactants, with the characteristic scent of Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella’s Fresia eau de cologne. Paraben-free.
Made in one of the oldest Italian pharmacies in the world, the Officina Profumo Farmaceutica di Santa Maria Novella, the first elixir was created from distilled rose petals. It was used as a household cleanser following the plague that ravaged Europe and its heavenly scent and antibiotic and antiseptic properties made it very popular. Four hundred years later in 1612, the pharmacy opened its doors to allow women to buy natural salves, lotions and balms to use as beauty therapies. From the garden to the gate, those same products are unchanged today and have achieved a cult following.
The best natural products, plant extracts and oils with healing properties, including virgin beeswax, sweet almond and grape seed oils, egg yolk and glycerin, all designed to nourish, rejuvenate and fragrance the skin.

The body is also well catered for with specific creams, powders, washes and fragrances. Products include Melograno Body Powder and Rose Bath Oil, as well as hand and foot treatments.
