Salve – once a hand care cosmetic by English shepherds, the consistency is harder than the ointment, consisting mainly of lanolin and beeswax (optionally olive oil) – raw materials readily available in the UK.

Bart about Body Salve: “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 cupuaçu 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 the indigenous people of Africa to protect the skin from UV rays.

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.

Body Salve has been enriched with herbal extracts. A properly selected mixture of sea algae extracts with a thalassotherapeutic effect enables the penetration of vitamins and minerals into the skin, regulates the level of water in the skin, improving its blood supply and cell renewal.

It has a herbal – waxy smell resulting from the smells of the substances used. If this is your first encounter with our cosmetics, their fragrances may surprise you.

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


It is an anhydrous cosmetic, so you should apply it to damp skin – first spread it and dissolve a little in your hands, and then massage it 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 cube may break, but it does not hinder its use in any way.


Our cosmetics contain natural ingredients that can 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, abnormal 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 part of the intended activities and should immediately attract attention. In case of doubt, please contact hi@janbarba.com.


[Even such rich and thoughtful formulas will not 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 contact us, Jan Barba is our passion and most of all, we want the care with our cosmetics to be conscious and bring satisfaction.

Packaging

In line with our efforts to reduce product-related waste, Body Salve is packed in semi-parchment, 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.
