A rich and singular history
The history of Saint-Hugon® ointment is closely linked with the French Alps and the Carthusian monks wich settled in the region during the 12th century. With a lifestyle close to nature and an ancestral know-how, the Carthusians monks have always excelled in the use of medicinal plants.
Today, the monastery is occupied by the buddist institution Karmaling, thus perpetuating the strong spiritual atmosphere in this unique place.
In 1905, after the separation between the Church and the State, the Monks were forced into exile and left for Tarragona, Spain.
Before leaving the Alps, the Cartusians Monks handed to Alexis Biron, pharmacist in Grenoble, the formula of their Saint-Hugon ointment, based on essential oils which virtues can treat damaged hands, painful muscles, burns…
The Saint-Hugon® ointment went on to be sold by Alexis Biron and his descendants at the Pharmacie Centrale in Grenoble for decades.
It is with the aim of perpetuating this strong tradition and to continue this legacy, under the best conditions, that the Saint-Hugon® Laboratory will be created in 2005.
NB : Saint-Hugon® ointment is a cosmetic product.
