About Products

The birch bark extract is specially formulated into creams and ointment and fast acting readily uptake on the sensitive skin and is applied thinly to the skin twice a day or when needed - and you only need just a tiny amount. We have birch bark extract in soap that allows a gentle cleansing of the skin and providing the natural birch extract to be in contact with the skin. The birch bark soap is designed for an ongoing maintenance of skincare. Maskwiomin has a great variety of birch bark extract skin care products: All our products are made from exclusively from 100% non-animal products. Our products are also peanut and nut particles free.



Maskwiomin bar soap is handmade from 100% natural and high-quality olive oil, canola oil and coconut oil ingredients. The coconut oil content provides a nice lathering experience adding to the soft cleansing effect. During the soap manufacturing the concentrated birch bark extract is added and the soaps are allowed to cure for 6 weeks. All bar soaps are craft made and the product appearances can slightly vary. It is recommended that customers use the bar soap once or twice a day on the skin area and wash with clear water. Maskwiomin soap is made for cleansing and skin maintenance. The soap is the original bark extract product and hints of campfire smell. We are selling small (30 g/ 1 oz) and large (100 g/3.5 oz) soap bars. Pending on usage, our small soaps last about one to two months.



Our creams are formulated for a smooth appearance without feeling greasy as the rich moisturizer adsorbs into the skin. Our cream formula is pH-skin optimized and makes it feel hydrated and protected. The cream is easy to spread – and only a thin layer is required - and provides the power of birch bark extract. We craft every cream batch by hand and small variances in appearances are normal. We have 15 g, 30 g, 50 g and 100 g sizes available for our creams.

Our high concentration cream is the ointment formulation which we sell in 15 g and 30 g containers. It is small as you only need very little to apply on the skin. The ointment has the strong odour of campfire showing the goodness of the bark extract.

The original cream has our regular concentration of birch bark extract and only contains the ultra premium base cream foundation and the birch bark extract. This has a hint of campfire smell of the bark extract.

Our new scented creams contain the regular birch bark extract concentration plus added awesomely smelling scents!
