What is a body / skin balm?

Natural balms are more than just a balm for the lips, they're a natural skincare saviour!

Natural body balms are made with plant based oils, butters and natural waxes. Balms are in a solid form which melt into a liquid with the warmth from your skin. These natural ingredients help to protect, hydrate and soothe the skin. A multi purpose balm that can be used from 3 months of age and in so many ways.

Lets start with the skin benefits of Kind Melts Calendula Balm.

1. Skin hydration

Natural balms are packed with moisturising ingredients which help to hydrate the skin and lock in the moisture. Kind Melts uses natural ingredients with skin hydrating properties these include a Jojoba oil, this oil is very similar to the skins own sebum.* Jojoba oil protects and hydrates the skin without clogging pores and causing acne. It's light and suitable for all skin types and can be used multiple times a day.

Keeping the skin hydrated helps to prevent itching, dry and irritated skin, it also aids with improving the skins elasticity, helping to reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

* Sebum is a oily waxy substance that the skin produces to help protect and keep skin moisturised.

2. Protecting the skin

Natural body balms protect the skin, the natural ingredients are rich in fatty acids, vitamins and nutrients. They help protect the skin against the elements, and lock in moisture to stop the skin drying out. Our organic cocoa butter is an excellent skin protector, it acts as a barrier against the elements. Cocoa butter is a wonderful ingredient not only for protecting and moisturising the skin but also improving the skin tone and elasticity.

3. Repairing skin

Natural balms can help to repair the skin. They can help to reduce the appearance of skin blemishes, scars and aid tissue regeneration. Our calming calendula balm contains Shea butter, Beeswax and Calendula oil, all known to aid in healing and repairing skin. Our skin friendly ingredients add moisture and suppleness to the skin whilst supporting the skins regeneration.

4. Skin soothing

There are many skin complaints that can benefit from natural body balms. Minor wounds, dry itchy skin, skin irritation, cracked skin and sunburn to name a few. The natural ingredients we use in our balms have excellent soothing and anti inflammatory properties. *

Excellent product, I use it on myself and my 3 children. I love that it's a natural balm and free from synthetic fragrances.
