The organic skin brush “BIRCH KISSES” can soothe skin irritations after insect bites, after stinging by nettles, abrasions, and other similar cases.
INGREDIENTS: BETULA ALBA LEAF EXTRACT, BETULA ALBA BUD EXTRACT*, PINUS SYLVESTRIS LEAF OIL*, MENTHA PIPERITA OIL
Instructions of use: Shake well before use. Apply the product to the insect bites with the brush and allow to dry in order to form a brownish, water rinsable, protective film.
Attention! Keep tightly closed in the original packaging. Keep away from eyes, wounds or mucous membranes. Keep away from children.
The soothing skin applicator is recommended for insect and bug bites or nettle stings. The mixture contains organic birch leaf and bud extracts, as well as organic pine and natural mint essential oils. The birch extracts and essential oils soothe and cool the irritated skin and reduce itching.
Birch leaf-bud extract contains many tannins, essential oils, saponins, minerals, phenolic compounds. A balanced set of active ingredients of plant origin synergistically complements each other’s properties – to suppress and soothe skin irritations. The active ingredients and essential oils of birch extract soothe and cool the irritated bite site, reducing itching. Pine essential oil has antiseptic properties and conditions the skin, and menthol, contained in mint oil, provides a cooling, stimulating, warming and refreshing effect. The reason for this paradox is the activation of blood circulation in response to the cooling effect of menthol by applying the mixture to the skin.
