or Candès Milk
Bottle 5s. 3p.
Candès, 16, Bd St-Denis, Paris
The Candès company was based at Boulevard Saint-Denis and was indeed established in 1848.
A bottle of their product costed in Britain staggering five shillings and three pence.
I found the Candès website run by descendants of the original manufacturers and this is what they say about their product:
Since 1849, Candès, the expert beauty brand for a radiant complexion!
The history of Candès started in 1849 when a pharmacist from Paris created a revolutionary product to remove skin blemishes and imperfections: Lait Candès became the beauty secret for elegant Parisian women before being adopted by thousands of other women.
Prepared with botanical extracts, floral waters and active ingredients recognised for their effectiveness, Candès products offer visible results whilst also respecting the skin.
They are made in France, with exclusive formulas, and tested under dermatological control.
