Natural, unrefined shea butter was used thousands of years ago by the royal families of ancient Egypt, including the famous Cleopatra. They appreciated the miraculous, healing properties of this ointment. Shea butter, extracted from the Shea-Karite tree in West Africa, contains two types of valuable substances: moisturising and healing. These are natural fats and fatty acids: triglycerides, diglycerides, monoglycerides, combinations of monoglycerides, diglycerides and unsaturated fatty acids. The main biologically active therapeutic components (about 10 %) are vitamin A, vitamin E, cinnamic acid, phytosterols, and triterpenes. The bioactive components in shea butter accelerate wound healing, soothe irritated skin, relieve itching, treat dry skin, reduce inflammation and help problem skin. Avocado oil is classified as a very expensive and luxurious cosmetic oil. It is not irritating to the skin and does not cause allergies. It is rich in oleic (77 %) and linoleic (10.8 %) glycerides, vitamins A, D, E and B, lecithin and phytosterol, which has anti-sclerosing properties. Avocado oil is well penetrated through the skin and has mini-texture properties. Rosehip oil prevents premature skin ageing, smoothes the skin, moisturises effectively and promotes skin elasticity. Oat extract has a mild emollient and soothing effect on irritated and inflamed skin, calming it and reducing dandruff. In addition, oats contain valuable beta-glucan, which helps the skin to cope with external stimuli such as cold, heat and dryness. The scrub is enriched with allantoin, a crystalline plant protein metabolism product extracted from the roots of the boneset. It is an active ingredient that stimulates cell growth, moisturises and soothes the skin, and increases skin elasticity. The components of Dry Mineral Water™ - magnesium, calcium, sodium, potassium, bromine, chlorine, silicon, iron, lithium, and sulphur compounds - restore the balance of minerals in the skin and restore a neutral or slightly acidic skin environment. Sulphur is converted into sulphides, which dissolve keratin and remove squamous epidermis. The remaining minerals are thus better able to penetrate the upper layers of the skin.
It's a great way to experience the power of Dry Mineral Water™ in the bathroom with just a shower. Use approximately 1-2 times a week on dry skin for a more exfoliating effect, or on wet skin for a milder effect. Massage the scrub all over the body, using more product on dry areas. Rinse off with lukewarm water. Gently dry the skin with a flannel or other towel. If you want to keep your skin moisturised throughout the day, apply a body lotion after using the product. Do not use it on the face.

Anna Dei gratia ducissa Lithuaniae, domina Trocensis, Luczensis etc. Anna dry mineral water is named after the wife of Grand Duke Vytautas of Lithuania, Ona Vytautienė. She is believed to have grown up in Dzūkija, in Eišiškės Castle. She married Vytautas around 1370 and lived in Trakai, where their only daughter Sofija was born. Here she had the opportunity to meet and get to know people of different nations, races and religions. Duchess Ona is mentioned in history in 1382 when Vytautas was imprisoned in Krėva Castle after the death of Kęstutis. It was only thanks to Ona's skill, determination and courage that Vytautas escaped from prison. This is evidenced by the incident described in Vytautas' order: "After consulting his wife and with her approval, he put on his wife's clothes and, before the guards could notice, he escaped and came to his sister Danuta". When Vytautas reconciled with Jogaila, he returned to Lithuania and lived in Grodno Castle. Here again, the Duchess saved Vytautas's life when the fire broke out. History records that Duchess Ona was so influential in the affairs of the State that she sometimes signed contracts for her husband, ensuring that he would keep them. When Vytautas was proclaimed King of Lithuania by the Lithuanian nobility, his wife Ona was given that title. Unfortunately, the crown was snatched and the coronation never took place. The power and wealth of the Lithuanian rulers astonished all their neighbours, and Princess Ona was universally hailed as the most splendid woman in Eastern Europe. Historical sources suggest that Ona's baptismal name may have been Oprassia (Oprassia uxor nra charissima).
