At French Bergamot, we only use ingredients that we trust and want you to trust.
Although we cannot call our base cream “organic” due to the cosmetic industry not being regulated in North America, we choose to only use ingredients and gentle preservatives which are approved by ECOCERT (arguably the most well-respected certification organization in the world) and that are organic when possible.
- A closer look at our ingredients -
Rose water (organic): Helps reduce the look of skin redness and fine lines, hydrates and protects the skin.
Jojoba oil (organic): Non-comedogenic oil that most closely resembles human’s sebum, rich in linoleic acid and vitamin E, well tolerated by all skin types (including extra-sensitive skin!).
Cetearyl alcohol: Coconut fatty alcohol, used to thicken and stabilize the texture of the cream, also acts as an emollient to helps soften the skin.
Glyceryl Stearate SE: Plant-based emulsifier, contributes to a creamy texture, also acts as an emollient to make skin soft and smooth.
Aloe Vera extract (organic): Our aloe vera extract is concentrated 200 times, it deeply hydrates the skin, has cooling properties and is known to alleviate dry and itchy skin.
Sorbic acid: Gentle and safe preservative used in skincare and cosmetics, approved by Ecocert in organic formulations.
Benzyl alcohol: Gentle and safe preservative used in skincare and cosmetics, approved by Ecocert in organic formulations.
Salicylic acid: Used as a preservative in minute amounts to help prevent bacteria build-up, perfectly tolerated by all skin types in these amounts, approved by Ecocert.
Willow bark extract: Natural source of salicin derived from the white willow tree, natural alternative to salicylic acid, rich in flavonoids and phenolic acids, helps alleviate redness, good preservative booster.
Aqua: Distilled water, free of contaminants, dissolved salts and colloidal particles.
Shea butter (organic): High in fatty acids and vitamins, boosts skin moisture and restores lipid levels, it is believed to promote cell regeneration.
Xanthan gum: Safe and natural agent that stabilizes and increases the viscosity of the emulsion, also thought to have skin-conditioning properties.
Tocopherol (Vitamin E): Powerful antioxidant, protects the skin from external factors (such as air pollution), helps skin feel nourished.
Sunflower oil (organic): Great source of vitamin E and linoleic acid, well-tolerated by all skin types, neutral in smell, helps skin retain its moisture.

Super hydrating and has a light texture. Will repurchase.
The ingredients and the vegan and cruelty free status are what made me buy this cream. I like that it has rose water as it's supposed to be great for fine lines. So far, I have nothing bad to say about it. It absorbs super quick and it's not sticky or tacky. I'm actually interested in discovering more of their line.
