Lavinie Switzerland Hand Cream
It is a great time to share this luxury hand cream to all of you – Lavinie Switzerland. The brand is founded by Michel Kuonen who gave up his secure high-paying job and follows his passion to become a true craftsmanship for beauty. One of the major ingredients that make this exclusive hand cream – Edelweiss, is a flower that everyone has heard of in Europe but not many have had the chance to see in person. The edelweiss plant can be found 1,700 to 4,000 meters above sea level in the Alpine glaciers or rocky terrains. In addition, the edelweiss plant produces extremely powerful, natural antioxidants and cell elasticity-enhancing properties which releases an outstanding anti-ageing effect. It is because of this amazing property the essence extracted from the edelweiss is such an important ingredient in the production of the Lavinie hand cream. Besides the rare and valuable ingredients used, another fascinating quality of the Lavinie hand cream is that it is completely hand made in Switzerland. Each bottle of Lavinie hand cream is valuable and namely one the of most luxurious hand care product in the market today.
