We heard about this via the dubious medium of the infomercial. Dr. Jean-Louis Sebagh discovered the melon extract and Cindy Crawford, at 41, is one of the finest examples of its efficacy. We have not tried this product yet, but, despite the corny marketing, it looks interesting enough and we wanted to post about it, so we have relied more than usual on the product website and an additional review site for our information. We will update if we learn anything new.
From the FAQs page of the Meaningful Beauty site:
What kind of melon does Meaningful Beauty's patented melon extract come from?
The patented melon extract in Meaningful Beauty’s revolutionary treatment products is taken from a rare form of "cantaloupe charentais", which is grown only in the south of France.
