Option one


In the Nordic countries, tar has for a long time functioned as a universal remedy and has been used in many ways to keep the skin in good condition. This ointment contains completely pure anhydrous lanolin and also traditionally harvested pine tar which has a very pleasant and aromatic scent.

Pine Tar can be effective against itchy skin, is a form of local anaesthetic, stimulates the formation of new skin, and has been an ingredient in ointments since the Roman Empire. It covers, protects, retains moisture, softens, and is suitable for cracked hands and feet, dry skin, cuts, and abrasions. The list is long!

Tjärsalva contains only 95% lanolin and 5% of the finest valley-burnt pine tar, so this tar ointment feels stickier than most other regular skin ointments - usually similar ointments contain vegetable oil or vaseline. Cheaper alternatives that are not as kind to skin.
