BODY SALVE

[50 g]

Salve - once a hand care cosmetic by English shepherds, in consistency harder than ointments, mainly made of lanolin and beeswax (optional olive oil) - raw materials readily available in Great Britain.

Bartosz about BS: “While working on the concept of the Jan Barba brand, during my stay in Great Britain, it was supposed to be my first cosmetic. However, the idea for it was "lost" in the course of the works. Until recently, when we "rediscovered" it, planning a cosmetic that will nurture our body, protect it against weather conditions and water loss. "


Our Body Salve is based on cupuacu and shea butter, which have unique water-binding properties, several times their own weight. What's more, they easily penetrate our skin, making it delicate and nourished, acting against dryness and damage. Both butters were used by indigenous people in Africa to protect the skin from UV rays.

Cold-pressed vegetable oils used in Body Salve are designed to provide vitamins and unsaturated fatty acids as well as GLA acid - necessary to moisturize the skin, moreover, it is a carrier for herbal extracts .

Our Body Salve has been enriched with herbal extracts with proven action against varicose veins, cellulite and skin spots. In addition, a properly selected mixture of sea algae extracts with thalassotherapeutic properties allows vitamins and minerals to penetrate the skin, regulates the water level in the skin, improving its blood supply and cell renewal.

Body Salve has a herbal - waxy scent resulting from the smells of the substances used. If this is your first encounter with our cosmetics, their fragrances may surprise you.

The fragrance and color of the cosmetic may change slightly over time.


It is a water-free cosmetic, so apply it to moisturised skin - first spread and dissolve a little in your hands, and then massage into the skin. On warm days, it is designed to protect against moisture loss, in cold weather - against the drying effects of heating. It leaves a noticeable "waxy" coating on the skin. The bar may break, but it does not hinder its use in any way.


In line with our efforts to reduce product-related waste, we packed the Body Salve in half-parchment paper, without a plastic coating, hence its permeability. The print was made by hand on 100-year-old printing machines, and the same way, we wrap each cube and glue it with glue, produced in Poland, from potato starch.


Our cosmetics contain only natural ingredients that may cause allergic reactions in susceptible people (please read the ingredients carefully!). In the event of such a reaction, please stop using the cosmetic immediately. The reaction may be indicated by redness, burning, dryness, eczema, unnatural non-absorption of the cosmetic for a long time and skin stickiness.

Our cosmetics are designed to please the skin, bring relief, nourish it, the feeling of discomfort is absolutely not intended and should immediately draw attention. If in doubt, please contact us hello @ janbarba.com .


[Even such rich and thoughtful formulas cannot replace a visit to a dermatologist (because they are not drugs) and taking care of physical and mental health. What is often reflected in the condition of our skin, which in this way "communicates" with us.]

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, Jan Barba is our passion and, most of all, we want the care with our cosmetics to be conscious and rewarding.
