The Herbal Tonic refreshes and nourishes your skin, it is rich in vitamins and minerals naturally found in the herbs. It has a soothing and anti-inflammatory effect. It works perfectly after cleansing and peeling the skin, or as a cleansing cosmetic. It is gentle for the eyes area. If left on the skin, it absorbs quickly.

Thanks to its acidic reaction, the tonic evens the skin pH. {explanation at the end}

COMPLEXION TYPE

Suitable for all skin types.

Can be used for hair.

SCENT, CONSISTENCY

The Herbal Tonic is watery, which absorbs quickly.

[The feeling of stickiness on your face for a long time after applying our Herbal Tonic is not a normal reaction, and it may indicate intolerance to aloe or another ingredient.]

It has an intense herbal fragrance, although these are subjective feelings, some customers compare it to wet grass, hay, leaves. If this is your first time interacting with our cosmetics, their fragrances may surprise you.

The smell and colour of the cosmetic may change slightly over time.

HOW TO USE IT

It can be used in the morning and in the evening, during summer and winter.

Use our Herbal Tonic twice a day, after cleansing (and optionally exfoliating) the skin, before using other skincare cosmetics. Spray the Herbal Tonic onto your face, neck and cleavage. You can also use it on hair and the rest of the body because it is rich in nutrients. Gently pat or massage it into the skin, it will absorb.

If you have a tonic version with a dispenser (e.g. from a purchase using your own packaging), pour a little bit of the cosmetic into the hollow of your hand. Then put your hands together and gently apply the tonic on the face, neck and cleavage.

You don't have to just wipe the excess of the tonic, you can leave it on, it will be absorbed.

When cleansing your face with tonic, you can use a cotton pad to collect the cosmetics. If you soak a cotton swab first, most of the cosmetic will stay on it, so it is better to apply it directly to the skin.

* info on paint descent

The inscriptions from our bottles may get damaged/scratched off over time because, the glass we use is difficult to print on, and our printing house uses delicate paints. This makes it easier for us to recover the bottles and fully reuse them.

* allergy info

Our cosmetics contain only natural ingredients that can cause allergic reactions to susceptible people (please see the composition section!). If you experience such reaction, please stop using the cosmetic immediately. The reaction may be indicated by redness, burning, dryness, blemishes, unnatural absorption of the cosmetic for a long time and skin stickiness.

Our cosmetics are created with a view to give the skin pleasure, bringing relief, and care. Any feeling of discomfort is absolutely not intended. If you have any doubts, please contact us - hello@janbarba.com.

Info: Why is pH of our skin so important to consider? {The skin is covered with a hydro-lipid coat, which prevents penetration of pathogenic microorganisms as well as toxic, irritating and allergenic substances. The hydro-lipid coat contains acids secreted by the sweat glands, which is why the surface reaction of the skin is slightly acidic. Depending on the area of the skin, the amount of acid secreted vary, which is why the reaction is not uniform over the entire surface. It is between 4-7. Averaging this value, it is assumed to be around 5.5. The acidic environment of the skin's surface provides protection against bacteria and fungi, which, in such conditions, have a difficult development. A damage to the hydro-lipid coat occurs under the influence of detergents, soaps (it can deprive the skin of a protective layer for up to 2 hours), or even tap water that has an alkaline pH. Consequently, the skin becomes permeable to irritants and allergens.}
