Collosol milk water was conceived in Paris in the 50s. Located near the Champs Elysees Theater, a pharmacy was regularly visited by famous actresses, in search of an exceptional product capable of erasing makeup and tired after the performances. To satisfy these artists, the pharmacist has designed a unique formulation, half milk and half water, subtle perfume and incomparable sweetness. This precious fluid, inspired by ancient beauty rituals, gives the skin clarity, splendour and scented sweetness, and could be used on the face or in the bath. Collosol Milk Water was born.
