Bel Fiore (Beautiful Flower) All-purpose pig tallow skin balm
Our first all-purpose skin balm is ready for purchase. It's been very exciting for me to combine my love of farming with 20 years of experience as a cosmetic formulator, and begin offer to our Corva Bella Farm personal provisions!
This is our "Bel Fiore" balm, completely handcrafted here on the farm. Slow-rendered and filtered, pure white leaf lard is infused with organic petals of lavender, chamomile, rose and calendula, then crafted into a balm with organic beeswax and vitamin E. Finally, wildcrafted and organic essential oils of high altitude French Lavender, Bulgarian Rose, Helichrysum, Chamomile and Geranium are added.
This balm is delicately fragrant and meant to be used externally on face or body. I use this product on my face, neck and under my eyes, for example! It's lovely as a hand or foot balm. This is the way our ancestors cared for their skin, before plant oils persisted. Lard, also known as pig tallow, strutto, manteca, or saindoux- is the closest to our skin's own natural sebum.
2 oz net weight in a heavy glass amber jar with full color/waterproof labeling.

* 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.
