About Pommade Divine
No other beauty product has a story like Pommade Divine. Dating back to the Viking era, when monks would make healing balms using medicinal herbs and apples, Pommade Divine has been the go-to product for any skin condition for centuries. Said to be the "best thing if you've burned yourself with sealing wax" by Marie-Antoinette's great-grandmother, this particular recipe was made by Butler & Co., the official Chemists to Queen Victoria.
By late 1867, Butler & Co. became an official chemist to the Royal family. This helped Butler’s version of Pommade Divine stand out as the market leader, and shortly thereafter became the only Pommade Divine available.
In the modern era, the product became available through all pharmaceutical outlets in the UK and at newer retailers like Boots. The family business was sold after World War II to a large public company, but sales declined through lack of promotion. By the late 80s, the decision was taken to cease production, and Pommade Divine was no longer available in pharmacies.
The brand is sold to a family that has first-hand knowledge of Pommade Divine's amazing properties, and a small quantity continues to be made and sold privately to loyal customers by word of mouth and in 2015 a legend was reborn.
