Fast Relief for Dry Skin - Glysolid Skin Cream


Romadur is a soft cheese with origins in Belgium. It was introduced into Germany, specifically Bavaria (Bayern), in the 1830's.

During its aging period, Romadur is regularly washed in salt water, making its surface permeable to a certain reddish-orange bacteria. This process gives the cheese a reddish-brown rind, a distinctive flavor, and a very strong aroma.

Romadur cheese usually comes in a small, retangular log. Its fat content varies from 30% to 60%.
