The winter season is a great time to think about balms. Balms provide a wonderful medium to deliver restorative and nutrient rich oils and butters to extra dry winter skin. Unlike the more familiar forms of creams or lotions, our balms do not contain any water-based ingredients. They are made only from oils, butters and waxes and are therefore a super concentrated emollient. Formulating non-water-based products is a way to eliminate the need for chemical antimicrobial preservatives. Instead, antioxidants like vitamin E and rosemary oleoresin are used to reduce the rate of oxidation and extend shelf life.
A little of our balm goes a long way. Keep one by your bedside to care for rough heels, cracked cuticles and environmentally damaged skin of any kind. We offer two shea butter balms, both made with 40% fair trade, organic shea butter, beeswax, and blends of anti-inflammatory, antioxidant rich, raw organic oils.
