Squitoe Salve is great on-the-go protection from mosquitoes and other bothersome insects. Keep handy in the glove compartment, in your purse or carry in your back pack.
Quinine is derived from Cinchona bark (Cinchona succirubra). This reddish-brown powdered bark is also known as Jesuits' Powder and was first documented in 1633 by a Jesuit missionary in Peru. In 1640, Peruvian bark was introduced to Europe; eventually, it was renamed, Chinchona, after the Countess of Chinchon who promoted the medicinal qualities of the bark. Its medicinal herbal properties have been used for a variety of applications, such as killing bacteria, parasites and insects. Cinchona, or quinine bark, is one of the rainforest's most famous plants and most important discoveries.
Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids that deeply moisturize the skin and rich in antioxidants that repair and renew skin health. The cocoa tree is native to South America and grows from 12 to 16 feet high. The tree bears bright green leaves, tiny red flowers, and yellow-red fruits or seed pods all year-round. These pods are split open, and the beans, surrounded by a sweet pulp, are allowed to ferment and then dry in the sun. Cocoa butter, a yellow-white solid, is then extracted or expressed from the beans.
Containing cocoa butter and quinine, this powerful salve protects against mosquito bites and other pesky insects. Squitoe™ Salve remains solid at room temperature due to the low melting point of the aromatic cocoa butter making it perfect for on-the-go outdoor activities.
