Woodland Weeds Skin Salve - 1/2 oz - With Cleavers, Violet Leaf, Plantain and Sweet Woodruff
Our farm-rendered and filtered leaf lard, infused with wildcrafted woodland herbs, growing in our forest acreage- violet leaf, plantain, sweet woodruff and cleavers. Their skin-beneficial qualities amplified through slow, gentle infusion into snow white rendered leaf lard. This balm has a delicate woodsy-herbal fragrance.
Lard, also known as pig tallow, strutto, manteca, or saindoux- is the closest to our skin's own natural sebum.
1/2 oz. net weight is packaged in a silver metal tin with screw-on lid and full color/waterproof labeling.
Ingredients: Purified pig Tallow (lard), Cera Alba Wax (Beeswax), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Wildcrafted Infusion of Violet Leaf (Viola odorata), Cleavers (Galium aparine), Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum) and Plantain (Plantago major), Essential oils for fragrance.
* Note, FDA regulations don't allow me to fully describe the benefits that certain herbs and essential oils have. To fully detail them would push a product into the category of being a drug, and not a cosmetic. Unfortunately, this means that you, the customer has to do some research in order to understand the benefits that specific ingredients have on the skin. All balms are for external body and face use, excluding the mucous membranes. Herbs and essential oils have been purported to have various skin beneficial properties throughout history. To detail any more specifics than this is in violation of FDA regulations for cosmetics. Thank you for understanding, and I'm sorry that I'm unable to fully detail the ingredients in my products due to this limitation. As a cosmetic formulator with 25+ years of commercial experience, I strongly adhere to these regulations.
