Friction de Foucaud is an energising body tonic created by Madame Lucienne Merle in 1946. Madame Merle was living in Indochine (modern-day Vietnam) and concocted her now legendary skin treatment for the French Military Officers to invigorate their tired and sore limbs. They soon became addicted to it for daily use due to its refreshing sensation and fragrance.
Upon their return home, the soldiers helped spread the popularity of the tonic and it quickly became a must-have product across France. The original formula has not changed and the Foucaud Body Tonic owes its success to secret formula of camphor, menthol and essential oils of orange, lemon, lavender, rosemary and thyme. This unique combination of ingredients creates the particularly refreshing and uplifting fragrance.
In the Morning. Use immediately after a shower. The tingling sensation wakes you up and the tonic stimulates and tones. It gives a burst of natural energy as the circulation is stimulated. The scent will quickly vanish to allow use of favourite fragrance.
At Night - after a long, tiring day, the tonic will help to relax the body and mind.
Pre Exercise - when rubbed into the skin vigorously, the Friction de Foucaud helps promote blood circulation and warms up the muscles, preparing them for activity and minimising risk of injury. One application is the equivalent of a half hour warm-up!
Post Exercise - the tonic has a cooling sensation and is therapeutic to tired, sore muscles.
