In the heart of Scandinavia, where the untamed wilderness meets timeless beauty, Skög introduces its latest skincare revelation – Birch Sap. This unique and exotic ingredient, celebrated for centuries, is the key to unlocking the secrets of radiant skin and lustrous hair. But what makes Birch Sap so extraordinary, and why did even the formidable Vikings turn to its wonders?
But what is Birch Sap? Birch is a tree and Sap means water, derived from the majestic birch trees that grace the Scandinavian landscapes, it is a natural elixir known for its exceptional benefits for both skin and hair. This sap is rich in Vitamins (vitamin B complex, C and E), minerals (potassium, calcium, magnesium, manganese), antioxidants, amino acids and Betulinic acid giving your skin all the goodness and even micro nutrients it needs.
What makes this ingredient more exotic is that it is naturally available only for 3 weeks in the whole year during early spring. A small hole is drilled in the birch tree trunk of about 1-2 inches deep. The sap flows naturally from the tree into the collection container due to the pressure changes within the tree caused by temperature fluctuations. This sap is then filtered to remove impurities and pasteurized for preservation.
Skög, inspired by the cultural heritage and the pristine nature of Scandinavia, has harnessed the potent properties of Birch Sap to create a skincare elixir that transcends the ordinary. This elixir penetrates deep into the skin, providing a surge of moisture, promoting elasticity, and leaving a luminous glow that reflects the purity of Nordic landscapes.
Birch Sap even holds a special place in Nordic history, where even the formidable Vikings recognized its prowess. Renowned for its restorative and rejuvenating properties, Birch Sap was a cherished resource for the Vikings, who valued its ability to nourish and protect their skin the harshest of environments. Birch was used to eliminate toxins from their skin or even in their saunas as a purification ritual for their bodies before going to war, before making big decisions, or embarking on a new path in life.
