It is important to watch for any changes in color, odor or texture, as this may indicate that the balm is no longer suitable for use. To extend its life, make sure your hands are clean before touching the product and avoid getting water into the pot.

Not only does it nourish and soothe the skin, but it also transforms a daily ritual into a moment of care and pleasure.
