SKIN BALM/ EXTRA SENSITIVE
Certain skin types can react to even the gentlest essential oils. That’s why we have come up with the Extra Sensitive Skin Balm. Unscented and free from essential oils, this balm is ideal for those with sensitive skin, babies, breastfeeding mums and mums-to-be. It is so gentle you can even use it on your face. Made in small batches, our balms are made with 100% pure botanical ingredients.
+ Apricot kernel oil is – unsurprisingly – extracted from the seeds of apricots. It is light in texture, so it can be absorbed quickly and then sets to work softening the skin. Not only does it contain vitamins A and E, it is also a wonderful moisturiser, anti-inflammatory and combats the signs of aging through nourishing and supporting the skin.
+ Jojoba oil is pretty magical. It has an affinity with our body’s sebum, which means it is more readily absorbed than other oils. It helps balance sebum production when applied topically, so your skin should be neither oily nor dry.
+ Calendula is famous for its ability to treat damaged and inflamed skin. It is often used as a remedy for wounds, acne, rashes and eczema. You might come across it in massage oils too, due to its softening and soothing properties.
+ Vitamin E keeps skin happy and eyes bright. It’s antioxidant properties means it is good at protecting the skin from unpleasant toxins and the sun’s powerful rays, whilst also retaining moisture.
