Inspired by the tradition of the Sisters of the Minims Convent, Le Couvent des Minimes Nail and Cuticle Fortifying Salve improves the appearance of nails and cuticles. It blends 30% nourishing shea butter and emollient apricot kernel oil to condition and smooth dry and rough cuticles. Fortifying myrrh essential oil is well known to improve cutaneous microcirculation of the nail edges, which helps to provide the nutrients nails need to grow healthy. After application, nail edges are refined and smooth. After regular use, cuticles appear well-groomed while nails are healthier and stronger.
The original Nail and Cuticle Fortifying Salve recipe:
Shea butter (Butyrospermum Parkii): nourishing, healing, regenerating and protective
Apricot kernel oil (Prunus Armeniaca): softening
Myrrh (Commiphora myrrha): fortifying
Use: Apply a small amount and massage into nail beds and edges. To soften dry damaged cuticles and strengthen nails use daily for two weeks or twice a week to keep hands beautiful.
Apply a small drop at the base of each nail. Gently massage the nail and cuticle. Leave on for 2 minutes. Use every day for two weeks to repair damaged cuticles and strengthen the nails or twice a week for regular maintenance.
