RESTORE AND BALANCE
MICROBIOME BODY LOTION BAR 

Nordic Forest Microbe • Blackcurrant • Chia | 100g e / 3.53 oz

Või means butter in Estonian… we named this beautiful body lotion bar after it’s luxurious blend of skin nourishing organic butters and oils, formulated together into a full moon shaped delight for daily forest bathing and skin soothing. 

A unique indoor forest bathing experience for your skin. Restore your lost connection with nature from living in an urban environment. This body lotion bar contains Humus Extract – Reconnecting Nature™ from Finnish nature, a multi-tasking ingredient to help condition and support the natural biodiversity found in healthy skin. 

With reference to our humus extract “Exposure for as little as two weeks can improve the biodiversity of a human living in a city” Heikki Hyöty, MD, PhD, Professor of Virology at Tampere University, Co-Founder of Uute Scientific Oy (Reconnecting Nature™)

Suitable for mature and sensitive skins. Recommended for all dry or combination skin types. 

Suitable for vegans & cruelty free.

The moisturising bar has been a revelation. It soothes and deeply hydrates my skin whilst leaving no trace of grease on the surface of my skin. It’s a miracle. I’ve moisturised my skin all of my life and have never had that experience. My skin feels so nourished, I’m hooked!

How to use

Use daily on dry or ideally damp skin. This bar is designed to soften at body temperature, so apply directly onto your skin in downward strokes. Massage in. The most effective way for your skin to absorb the lotion bar is to massage in the direction of hair growth. You’ll see the speckles of our forest microbe as you apply it.

Key Ingredients

Nordic Forest Microbe: 

Humus extract or Reconnecting Nature  is a unique and innovative extract designed to be used as your daily exposure to the diverse microbial and micro-organism communities of Finnish forests and meadows. 

This very special ingredient developed directly from Finnish nature provides rich inactivated microbes for enhancing the skin’s protective barrier and to restore the balance of the microbiome while soothing the skin. 

Blackcurrant:

Exceptionally high in GLA & ALA, fundamental nutrients vital to the healthy functioning of our cells. Grown in the UK, this Blackcurrant seed oil is calming and restorative with revitalising properties, high in phytosterols supporting collagen and skin elasticity.

Chia:

One of the richest and perfectly balanced sources of Omega 3, 6, and 9. Amino acids, vitamins and minerals plus zinc. This organic European chia seed oil is anti-inflammatory and carries natural antioxidant properties for soothing, scar prevention and skin regeneration.

Oat Lipid E:

A natural unique lipid complex rich in moisture regulating ceramides, skin-identical fatty acids, and membrane phospholipids. This powerhouse ingredient is non-comedogenic, supporting barrier function, and packed with potent antioxidants slowing damage to cells caused by free radicals.

Illipe Butter:

Raw and organic, this ethically sourced illipe butter is produced by forest communities in Borneo. Zero-waste and without harming the rainforest, only the ripe nuts which have fallen to the ground are harvested. A long-lasting skin softening butter with deeply moisturising properties help repair chronically dry and cracked skin.

    I have been using this for 2 weeks now, I can’t tell you the difference it has made! I try and use straight out of the shower as the moisture and warmth of my skin helps its melt and glide, if my skin is too dry it needs a little extra help to warm and melt (no bother though) it doesn’t have a particular smell, I am thoroughly enjoying the results after just 2 weeks Alice is very clever in using all these natural ingredients! Am super excited for future products

    I’ve been following Alice’s journey for a while and couldn’t wait to get hold of this bar. The whole experience, from opening my parcel and seeing the beautiful considered packaging, to using this dark solid bar was very special. The bar applied easily on to my skin, from fingers to toes. Giving you just enough to fully moisturise an area without any greasiness and excess rubbing. My body has absorbed the lot! No plastic bottles and no wasted product, thank you Alice x

    Using this bar became a ritual, it was even great for my healing tattoo. Love the smell, is woody and calming. I love that the packaging is all eco/biodegradable. Absorbed really well and non sticky, made my skin beautifully soft.
