Boiron Homeoplasmine Pommade is the French equivalent of Aquaphor or Vaseline, but better.
This repairing balm soothes, protects and moisturises the skin.
It’s much loved by everyone from mums to beauty artists and from nurses to dermatologists.
You’ll find it in many bathroom cabinets and emergency kits around the world.
Think of it as a must-have SOS for the skin.
And now you can get it easily in Australia.
This balm was created as a homeopathic treatment for skin irritations, scratches, grazes and bruises and just about anything else you can think of. You can also use to soothe sunburn, promote the healing of cracks, relieve dry lips, soften cuticles and comfort the sides of the nose due to colds or hayfever. Some people even use it for slugging under the eye area.
Gwyneth Paltrow put this French beauty fave on the international radar when she raved about it and revealed that it was used behind the scenes by leading makeup artists at fashion weeks in Milan and Paris, whether as a lipstick primer or to help heal skin imperfections super fast.
Unlike Vaseline and Paw Paw Ointment, Homeoplasmine is not super sticky and gross on your skin.
It protects the skin against irritants, keeps the skin moist and promotes healing.
Apply only a small amount to comfort the skin and trap moisture.
This is truly a multi-purpose product that’s both effective and lovely to use, leaving a velvety soft finish.
Homeoplasmine combines traditional plant extracts in a base of Vaseline. The plants extracts fight infection and relieve inflammation, allow the skin to repair and regenerate. The Vaseline shields the area and keeps it moist, creating the ideal environment for healing to occur.
Boric Acid is used for its antimicrobial properties. It fights skin pathogens and prevents infections, which reduces inflammation and enables healing.
Phytolacca, or Poke Root, has been used traditionally to ease inflammation. The plant’s saponins are thought to reduce irritation and redness.
Calendula, otherwise known as Marigold, is a soothing plant extract used to calm and repair the skin.
Bryonia, or Byrony, is used for its anti-inflammatory and analgaesic effects. It has been used traditionally as a poultice for bruises and inflamed joints.
Vaselinum Album is the famous Vaseline. It’s highly occlusive, which means it sits in top of the skin and prevents water loss. It also creates a moist environment that’s protective, promotes healing and reduces scarring. Studies have demonstrated that petrolatum is safe, doesn’t get absorbed and is non-comedogenic.
Here are some ways you can use your Homeoplasmine. But don’t let us limit your applications.

For this reason, it focuses on the environment, employees and the community.
I can’t rave about this balm enough! I use it every night on my lips and handles/cuticles. I also put it under my eyes sometimes or on any dry patches. A tube lasts ages as well, highly recommend.
