Embalming

Modern embalming was introduced and developed in Europe by Great Britain and then France in 1963 with the creation of the Institut Français de Thanatopraxie.

Embalming is generally defined as the injection of a preserving and hygienic solution into the vascular system which allows the temporary preservation of the body and the presentation of the deceased under optimal aesthetic and hygienic conditions.

In practice, Formaldehyde has always been used as a biocide agent.

Embalming

Technique

Safebalm® is the new generation of embalming fluid formulated thanks to research on PREVENTOL P-100 (Bronopol) as a biocide agent.

The function of Safebalm® as a product is to disinfect and preserve the deceased in order to delay and slow down decomposition.

The difference between Safebalm® compared to formaldehyde-­-based products is that the tissues remain supple.

The dosages recommended are for effective preservation of the deceased for 6 to 10 days.

However, by adjusting the quantity of fluid injected a longer preservation time may be obtained in case of repatriation, for example.
