Natural cosmetics, Balsamic as a beauty elixir


Balsamic Vinegar of Modena is a healthy condiment perfectly suitable for the diet of people wishing to control their weight or to eat naturally. As we saw in our article on the beneficial properties of Balsamic Vinegar, the health benefits of this ingredient are multiple and not limited to the kitchen use only: its antioxidant and antiseptic properties are also used in natural cosmetics. 

An ancient remedy with antiseptic properties 

If you are wondering what natural cosmetics have to do with vinegar, just think that already in ancient times this ingredient was used in hair dyes and skin treatments. In fact, the etymology of the term “balsamic” recalls its ancient use as a preparation with antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties, which made it fall among the medicines even before being considered as food, so much that it was used as a disinfectant for wounds and against infections. On the other hand, vinegar has always been used as a natural preservative and its acidity has been recognized to preserve cosmetics.  


The benefits of Balsamic Vinegar for skin and hair 

The antiseptic properties of Balsamic vinegar are linked to its use as a skin purifier: dabbing balsamic vinegar on the face can help to fight acne and grassy skin; this is why today there are cosmetics based on balsamic vinegar taking advantage of its action in case of skin problems. Several spa centers also offer balsamic treatments to purify the skin and improve its elasticity. 

Balsamic is also good for the skin and hair for its antioxidant properties, due to the fact it is an ingredient rich in flavonoids, chemical elements naturally present in grapes that help fight free radicals, responsible for skin aging and capillary stress. Grape polyphenols therefore support the immune system and slow down cellular aging.  


The Volare line based on Balsamic Vinegar of Modena 

The  line “Volare” by Acetaia Leonardi was born as a line of cosmetics and household products exploiting all the natural properties of Balsamic Vinegar: the antioxidant effect of grape polyphenols, the skin-purifying and antiseptic action of vinegar and – last but not least  – the unmistakable aroma of Balsamic, which comes from the scented woods of the barrels in which it slowly ages for decades. 

The line includes anti-aging face creams with Balsamic Vinegar of Modena I.G.P. and organic flower extracts, with emollient and anti-wrinkle action for relaxed, luminous and plumped skin. Among the ingredients there are also seaweed extracts, rich in mucilage and mineral salts which promote the hydration and elasticity of the skin. 

Then there are the soaps, the cleansing foam and the body milk with a physiological pH based on Balsamic Vinegar of Modena I.G.P. and organic flower extracts, for a delicate cleansing action that respects the skin's natural hydrolipidic film, in addition to protective hand creams with a nourishing and soothing action. 

This cosmetic line prefers the use of natural ingredients and excludes the use of parabens, paraffin oil, silicones and colourings; therefore, it can also be used by people with very sensitive skin and looking for delicate natural cosmetics. 

Finally, the line includes various products for room perfuming, such as balsamic sprays and diffusers, characterized by a soft and fruity fragrance with spicy notes, recalling the wood of the barrels in which the Balsamic Vinegar of Modena Leonardi is aged for over 15 years. 

Thanks to this innovative line, Balsamic Vinegar of Modena I.G.P.  can truly prove to be a treat for all your senses!
