Organic Balm – The Natural Alternative to Petroleum Jelly
Kinder on the planet and your skin, my new Organic Balm is a sustainable, vegan and natural alternative to petroleum jelly. Perfect for anti-chafing and minimising soreness and dryness, to your lips, nips and dry bits.
Petroleum jelly is widely used in the skincare industry and after researching its long refining process from crude oil, which is a non-renewable resource, I had to create an alternative that was natural, sustainable and safe to use.
In the process, I have created a balm that not only acts as a barrier but also provides the skin moisture to soothe dry skin. This is because, unlike petroleum jelly, the ingredients in my balm such as the unrefined organic shea butter, act as a non-comedogenic barrier that when teamed with the organic safflower oil, provides a non-greasy layer that doesn’t clog your pores and leaves the skin moisturised.
I pride myself on only using high quality, organic and sustainably sourced ingredients in this balm and across the whole Obvs range.

Organic Skincare and The Environment
I am incredibly conscious about the planet. Every ingredient I use is biodegradable and safe to go down the plughole.
All products are minimally packaged and are plastic-free. The Organic Balm comes in a handy travel-sized tin, which can be reused and/or recycled (no hidden plastic in the lid).

The unrefined, certified organic Shea Butter is organic and raw, meaning it has not undergone a chemical refining process. You receive all the undiluted, natural benefits it has to offer. The organic, unrefined Shea Butter comes straight from a fairly traded cooperation, who do not use pesticides and are totally sustainable, whilst paying their workers a good wage.
Organic, cold pressed certified organic Safflower oil has a high Omega 8 content making it popular for acne and problem skin conditions. It is mild enough to use in Babycare products and Children's skincare creams. Safflower oil has a low comedogenic rating which means it goes on very light, works for all skin types, including sensitive skin, and absorbs into the skin quickly, without leaving a greasy residue.
Organic Arrowroot Powder has nourishing qualities with a reputation for detoxification and wound healing. It’s known to calm skin irritations and is widely used in creams and lotions.
Tocopherol, or better known as vitamin E, is found in vegetable oil. It’s easily absorbed by the skin and is rejuvenating for all skin types. Vitamin E also helps to preserve the cream - ensuring it stays fresher for longer.
Candelilla wax, a vegan alternative to beeswax, comes from the Candelilla plant. The plant native to Mexico is grown under strict regulations to ensure sustainable harvesting. It not only helps bind other ingredients together, it also provides a barrier whilst absorbing easily into the skin.
