The Cracked and Chapped Balm is a handmade balm full of natural oils and butters. It is a little marvel for dry, cracked, flaky skin. The inclusion of two carefully chosen essential oils, Sandlewood and Peppermint, both soothe and cool itchy redness as well as combating inflammation. They are known for having strong anti-infection qualities. Best of all they combine marvellously with the other ingredients to act like a barrier stopping the skin drying out futher and helping to keep the moisture in a lot longer than an ordinary moisturiser could.
All of the other ingredients are also known to be beneficial to dry cracked skin. Mango and Cocoa Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba and Olive Oil help with moisturising and protecting skin.
Some additional luxurious ingredients have also been added such as Evening Primrose Oil, Rosehip Oil and Vitamin E Oil. All are fantastic for skin generally, helping with skin cell regeneration, reduction of scarring and damage caused by the environment.
The little pots are just the right size to pop in your pocket or bag and whip out for immediate relief on extremely dry or cracked skin. They can be used by anyone on hands, feet, body, face, lips, or dab them anywhere that needs a quick dose of soothing moisture to help repair weather damage.
We think they are perfect not only for your own emergency skincare kit but as a gift for people who love natural products with uplifting aromas.
In total we've packed 11 butters and oils into these little pots and use organic ingredients where possible.
Our balms use more expensive, natural ingredients than those that are mass manufactured. But we believe they are much more beneficial and kinder to the skin. They are also made regularly in small batches at our North Yorkshire studio.
Because we use natural and organic ingredients you may notice some shrinkage or white streaks. This is a normal reaction of olive and jojoba oils and some butters and only occurs because the jars are stored in a cool place.
