No. 787 - C.O.Bigelow introduces Sakura Rose Salve, the newest addition to our all-purpose salve collection inspired by our adventures and travels to Japan. The significance of the cherry blossom tree goes back hundreds of years. The cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life. These pink petals welcome the beginning of springtime and for a very short time the blossoms appear almost ethereal.
Sakura is a modern and ancient expression of the celebration of renewal, new beginnings and joyfulness. For us, Sakura represents the beauty of the East, while Rose represents the beauty of the West. This multi-purpose salve is emulsified with soothing rose extract that heals chapped lips and dry skin patches on face and body.

What It Does
C.O. Bigelow Sakura Rose Balm soothes dry skin and chapped lips with soothing rose extract, lanolin, Jojoba and cotton seed oils
Cotton Seed Oil
Gossypium herbaceum seed oil contains vitamin E and other antioxidants that can boost skin health. This oil can improve the appearance of the skin, moisturize dry skin, and help prevent premature aging.
Lanolin oil softens the skin and is a good humectant (something that absorbs moisture from the air), making it a superb natural hydration for seriously dry lips.
Rose Essential Oil
Containing a complex array of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, rose essential oil has excellent emollient properties for moisturizing dry skin; it also offers antiseptic and astringent properties to treat acneic skin, as well as anti-inflammatory properties that help treat redness and inflammation.
This particular form of Squalane is derived from olives. It locks in moisture as it hydrates and miraculously mimics skin’s naturally occurring omega fatty acids (3 & 6).
