Salafia replaced the girl’s blood with a fluid made of formalin to kill bacteria, liquor to dry the body, glycerin to retain her from over drying, salicylic acid to kill fungi, and zinc salts to give her body rigidity. Hence, the formula’s structure is “one-part glycerin, one-part formalin flooded with both zinc sulfate and chloride, and one part of an alcohol clarification saturated with salicylic acid.” Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosalia_Lombardo
