Cañizares Universal Balm
This vintage multi-use balm is a classic beauty product that anyone can add to their self care kit. This product is versatile and can be used to add hydration back into the skin, as well as helping many other skin imperfections, such as pimples, ulcers, ingrown hairs and sores.
The best way to get the most out of this vintage product is by applying it using the traditional method! Apply a generous amount to the affected area and cover with gauze or a plaster, to seal in the hydration, and to allow the product to deeply moisturise and help heal the skin.
This product was created in 1896 by D. R Cañizares Domingo, who was the first pharmacist in his family. He was born in Valencia in 1868 and became a licensed pharmacist in his adult life, when he also opened his own pharmacy in number 47 Caballeros street! Back in the days of early medicine and pharmaceuticals, when very few medicines were available, pharmacists and their assistants were trying to find the perfect formula- such as this balm. The Cañizares laboratories are now run by the fourth generation of the family business.
The formula of this must use balm has been modified to make it an entirely natural product, and the colour has been changed from the black shade that your grandparents would recognise to white.
