Here's an effective and natural boreal alternative that is vegan-friendly, unscented, preservative free and does NOT contain any commercial essential oils! This balm is specifically crafted for all of your forgotten nether areas (and beyond), that can create significant discomfort when they are ignored. Barrier balms create a physical barrier on the skin to lock in the good moisture and support healing, while keeping out bad moisture and external irritants. The majority of commercial barrier creams and balms contain petroleum, mineral oil or silicone including other synthetic ingredients you just don't want on your skin.
Let's get real - friction, sweat, urine or biofluids (in the case of babies or adult incontinence), and resulting bacteria and pH changes can quickly degrade your skin's natural barrier resulting in dermatitis, rashes, itchiness, chafing and in some cases sores or infections that require prescription or medical treatment. Prevention is key, and this boreal barrier balm is here to deeply replenish and protect your skin's moisture barrier while preventing damage and discomfort.
Wildcrafted plantain, yarrow and birch bring calming and soothing benefits as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties. Zinc oxide, arrowroot, and bentonite clay assist in creating a physical barrier and also provide restorative and calming benefits, while drawing excess moisture and impurities out of the top layers of skin. Organic castor, coconut, and grapeseed oils + shea and cocoa butters all act to deeply moisturize and provide vitamins and essential fatty acids to compromised skin, while vegan rice bran wax reduces moisture loss.
This balm contains natural non-nano zinc oxide (will not absorb through your skin) but is low-whitening in comparison to store-purchased brands. It melts on contact with the skin and spreads beautifully without feeling sticky - a little goes a very long way. Use care if choosing this product for use on babies with cloth diapers as overapplication may, over time, create a moisture barrier on the fabric.
Some of this balm's numerous head-to-toe uses include:
prevent drying and irritation of skin during a cold or flu, apply daily around your nose to protect from physical tissue abrasion while blowing
use as an overnight facial barrier cream treatment to intensely moisturize dry or irritated skin
makes a great acne spot treatment, as zinc is highly beneficial for inflamed and congested skin (this balm is low in cocoa butter so will not aggravate acne)
apply under arms, breasts or between thighs before a workout, hiking, cycling or other active pursuits or during the summer months to prevent painful chafing or redness caused by friction or sweating (runners can use to prevent the dreaded chub rub or raw nipples, ouch!)
apply daily to baby's bottom to moisturize, protect and prevent irritation
use to protect skin in cases of adult incontinence
use in support of medicated vaginal yeast infection, jock itch or hemorrhoid treatments to shield skin from unwanted moisture and assist healing - can be used freely in vaginal and perianal areas
applied between toes to reduce friction or prevent summer heat rash from sandals
Directions for use: apply to clean, dry and unbroken skin. Can be massaged in giving a powdery moisture-proof finish or left as a thicker protective layer depending on use. Avoid harsh cleansers if your skin is already irritated, and dry by gently dabbing skin rather than rubbing. DOES NOT REPLACE PRESCRIPTION OR MEDICATED TREATMENTS.
