Forsvarets Hudsalva Swedish Military Balm
Yesterday I showed you Fatworks, tasty animal fat you can use to cook. Today I bring you Forsvarets Hudsalva, soothing vegetable fat you can use to fix up your lips chapped from drooling and smacking at the sight of duck fat french fries. And that's just the beginning.
Developed 50+ years ago by the Swedish military, Forsvarets Hudsalva has a bunch of different external applications. In addition to dry lips, you can rub it on dry skin, cuts and scrapes, blisters, and minor frostbite. The balm stays solid at all temperatures, but the company says when you rub it over an affected area it will absorb quickly into your skin, without leaving behind a greasy residue.
Forsvarets Hudsalva is paraben-free, but does contain peanut oil, so check that if you're allergic.
