Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Shea Butter, Beeswax, Manuka Honey, Calendula, Chamomile, Kawakawa and Vitamin E.
Why I’m Great
Kawakawa (Macropiper excelsum) is native to NZ and used widely in Rongoa (Maori traditional medicine). Kawakawa contains healing & soothing analgesic properties for skin. Well known in New Zealand as a medicinal plant, for its ability to assist in healing numerous skin conditions and irritations.
Manuka Honey (Leptospermum scoparium)
Full of vitamins, amino acids & minerals and is naturally anti-microbial; promoting healing & repairing cell damage.
NZ Beeswax (Cera Alba)
Known to act as a natural skin barrier to lock in moisture, foster cells & protect skin from damaging environmental factors. Alike to Manuka honey, beeswax has antibacterial properties, helping keep skin clean and reducing the risks of contamination in the formula itself and also found to help encourage the healing of wounds.
NZ Calendula (Calendula officinalis)
Soothes & hydrates inflamed & infected skin. This oil when distilled is a powerful anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial agent, and antiseptic. One of the complex characteristics of calendula oil is a compound called triterpenoid. Used topically to relieve dermatitis, eczema, rashes, and irritated dry skin.
NZ Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla)
Chamomile is antibacterial, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antiseptic. It is also considered to be hypoallergenic with the ability to neutralise skin irritants.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)
Coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids which are absorbed into the skin. This provides all the energy your skin needs to heal and maintain itself. Our bodies need adequate amounts of antioxidants. Coconut oil contains two anti-oxidants: ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid.
Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can penetrate through layers of skin, assisting the body with the natural wound healing process. Vitamin E lubricates the skin and forms a protective layer that serves to keep free radicals away from wounds. Vitamin E also promotes collagen in the skin.
REFILL OPTION AVALIABLE
Please Note : The little granules that sometimes happen are perfectly natural and normal, and doesn’t mean that your product has gone bad or that something’s wrong with it. This is a common occurrence with natural, unrefined Shea butter, and sometimes, cocoa butter. Shea butter is made of several different types of fat. When temperatures change, the Shea melts, and then the like-fats all congregate and hang out together by the chip bowl. When the butter cools again, they crystallize, or harden, at different speeds, causing little granules to form. The more the butter melts and re-hardens, the more granules you get. Keep in mind that Shea butter melts at the same temperature as human skin (one reason why we love it so much), which also means that sunshine, travel, humidity, sitting close to a heater, or being in a hot bathroom can all cause fluctuations in the texture of the balm.
