Salve - once a hand care cosmetic for English shepherds, in consistency, harder than an ointment, consisting mainly of lanolin and beeswax (optional oil) - raw materials easily available in the UK.
Bartosz [Jan Barba creator] on our Body Salve: "While working on the concept of Jan Barba brand, during my education in the UK, Body Salve supposed to be my first cosmetic. However, the idea for it "disappeared" during the work. Until recently, when we rediscovered it, planning a cosmetic that would care for our body, protect against weather conditions and water loss. "
Qualities: Our Body Salve is based on cupuacu butter and shea butter, which have unique water binding qualities, several times exceeding their own weight. What's more, they easily penetrate our skin, making it delicate and nourished, acting against drying and any damages. Both butters were used by the native Africans to protect their skin against UV rays.
Cold pressed vegetable oils used in our Body Salve are designed to provide vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids as well as GLA acid - necessary for moisturising the skin. In addition, it is a carrier for herbal extracts.
We have enriched our Body Salve with herbal extracts, which prevent varicose veins, cellulite and skin spots (documented by research). Moreover, a properly selected blend of sea algae extracts, with thalassotherapy, allows the penetration of vitamins and minerals into the skin, and regulates the level of water in the skin improving its blood supply and cell renewal.
HOW TO USE IT
This is an anhydrous cosmetic, so it should be applied on wet skin - first spread and dissolve a little in your hands, then massage it into the skin. In warm weather, it is designed to protect against moisture loss, in cold weather, against the drying effect of heating. The cube may break, but this does not hinder its use in any way.
In accordance with our actions limiting product-related waste, we packed Body Salve in semi-parchment, without a plastic coating, hence its permeability. The print was made by hand on a 100-year-old printing machine, also manually. We wrap each cube and glue using a potato starch glue produced in Poland.
