Inspired by the tradition of the Sisters of the Minims Convent, the Fortifying Nail and Cuticle Salve formula 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 fortifying nail & cuticle salve recipe:
Shea butter (Butyrospermum Parkii): nourishing, healing, regenerating and protective
Comments about Le Couvent des Minimes Nail and Cuticle Fortifying Salve, .5 oz:
I bought this product hoping to reduce my nail ridges through hydration but have not noticed any difference. It has a nice lotion-like consistency and pleasant lemony scent, but my nails are no healthier or stronger than before. I don't have cuticle problems, but I suppose this would help if I did.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
