Bodegas Bal Minuta, a winery in Biescas, in collaboration with the care institution Mmate Aesthetic Center, has launched a 100% natural soap made from pomace and wine pomace Wine pomace is a product of the grape fermentation process, after which the yeast dies and is deposited, and it is rich in grape mannans, which act on skin moisturization.

As for the fruit pomace, they have a high content of antioxidants and pigments, which are also very good for the skin.
The winery says that the idea for the production of soap came from a project funded by the European Agricultural Development Foundation (Fondos Feader) and the Aragonese government to restore and improve old mountain grape varieties within the framework of the Aragonese Rural Development Program. Therefore, we considered partnering with a company made up of women in the region to implement this project. In our opinion, it is time to open a line of cosmetics related to wine and to include this project in the program for the recovery of ancient grape varieties.
