We were looking for a better way to calm, soothe, and protect skin that's itchy, scraped, rashy, or rough due to dryness and breakouts without the harshness of chemicals and alcohols often found in store bought products.
The additives that were supposed to be healing our skin often made our skin irritations worse. We discovered a way to create a protective barrier made with natural ingredients. It's one of the best ways to soothe the skin and promote repair. Use this salve all over your skin for relief and softness!
