The Natural Alternative to Petroleum Jelly.

For Lips, Nips and Dry Bits! 

Kinder on the planet and your skin, the 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. Your eco-conscious alternative to a skin care essential.

What It Helps With

The widespread use of petroleum jelly in the skincare industry prompted Sian to embark on a research journey, delving into its extensive refining process derived from non-renewable crude oil. This exploration ignited her determination to develop an alternative solution that not only prioritises natural ingredients but also upholds sustainability and safety in its usage.

Through an intricate process, we have successfully crafted an Organic Balm that transcends the conventional notion of a mere barrier and delves into the realm of providing deep moisturisation for parched skin. Distinguished from petroleum jelly, the Organic Balm incorporates carefully selected components, including unrefined organic shea butter, renowned for its superior non-comedogenic properties. When synergistically combined with organic safflower oil, it forms a non-greasy shield that flawlessly envelops the skin, keeping the pores unobstructed and delivering long-lasting hydration.

We take immense pride in utilising only the highest quality, organic, and sustainably sourced ingredients not only in this exceptional balm but also across the entire Obvs range. This unwavering commitment ensures that you can confidently indulge in our products, knowing that they are created with integrity and the well-being of both you and the environment in mind.

Smell – Lightly nutty, earthy unrefined Organic Shea Butter scent.

Texture – Balm, if too solid warm in your fingertips before application.

Butyrospermum parkii (Shea Butter)*, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil*,  Maranta Arundinacea Root Powder (Arrowroot)*, Euphorbia cerifera cera (Candelilla Wax), Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), *Organic

The Shea Butter used in this product is unrefined and certified organic, indicating that it has not undergone any chemical refining processes. As a result, users can benefit from the pure and natural properties inherent in Shea Butter. This Shea Butter is sourced directly from a fairly traded cooperative that adheres to sustainability principles and refrains from using pesticides. Additionally, the cooperative ensures fair wages for its workers.

The Safflower oil used in this formulation is certified organic and cold-pressed. It contains a significant amount of Omega 8, making it highly sought after for treating acne and other skin conditions. The gentle nature of this oil allows for its use in baby care products and children's skincare creams. Safflower oil has a low comedogenic rating, meaning it is lightweight and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin. Furthermore, it absorbs quickly into the skin without leaving an oily residue.

Tocopherol, also known as vitamin E, is derived from vegetable oil. It is easily absorbed by the skin and offers rejuvenating effects for all skin types. Additionally, vitamin E helps preserve the cream, ensuring its longevity and freshness.

Candelilla wax, a vegan substitute for beeswax, is derived from the Candelilla plant, which thrives naturally in Mexico. The cultivation of this plant adheres to stringent regulations, guaranteeing sustainable harvesting practices. Beyond its role in effectively binding other ingredients, Candelilla wax serves as a protective barrier while effortlessly absorbing into the skin, facilitating optimal efficacy.

Saving my nipples whilst breastfeeding!

This balm is literally making our breastfeeding journey possible with the relief and healing it’s providing my sore nipples. I was alternating using this, weleda and lanisoh but I’ve stopped using the other 2 and just use this as I don’t find the others give much relief at all and they are so wet and sticky but this just glides on and isn’t wet. I can’t believe how much less painful my nipples are since putting this on after every feed. Absolutely recommend!

Hi Claire! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review. We are happy to hear that our Organic Balm has been helping you on your breastfeeding journey. Our goal is to provide relief and healing for sore nipples, and we are glad to know that we have been successful in doing so. We appreciate your support and recommendation. Happy breastfeeding! Love Sian xxx

Long lasting

I use this as a lip balm as my lips can crack and bleed particularly in the cold. I am definitely seeing an improvement, it lasts well and my lips are much less sore. I love the texture of it compared to vaseline. I find Vaseline slimy and it doesn’t last very long but this is much thicker but dissolves into my lips as it warms and doesn’t leave that horrible slimy texture that you get with Vaseline. Makes a lovely smooth base for a lipstick too!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review for The Organic Balm! We are thrilled to hear that it has been helping with your cracked and sore lips, especially in the cold weather. We pride ourselves on creating a long-lasting and nourishing product, so it's great to know that it's making a difference for you. And we agree, the texture is much better than Vaseline! We're glad it's working well as a base for your lipstick too. Thanks again for your support and we hope you continue to enjoy using The Organic Balm. Love Sian x

Saviour balm

This little tub goes everywhere with me! I mostly use it as a lip balm, but also apply it to areas of my hands that become dry and cracked in colder months, and apply a thicker layer at night to my lips so it's more of a lip mask. It's so versatile and gentle on the skin. Not greasy at all, just soothing and a little goes a long way!

Thank you so much for leaving such a positive review for our Organic Balm! We're thrilled to hear that it's become a must-have in your daily routine. It's great to know that it's been working wonders for you as a lip balm and for those pesky dry areas on your hands. We couldn't agree more - a little really does go a long way! We hope it continues to be your go-to savior balm. Thanks again for your support H!

Feels amazing.

I use this balm on nearly everything. Keeps lips moisturised and protected. Great for on your nose, when you have a cold and blow your nose alot. Stops the sore red nose and stops it peeling. I also sea swim and use it on my neck and underarms where salt water can cause soreness. In the pool I put a bit on my face because the chlorine can make my cheeks tender and sore when i swim, this makes a barrier to stop the chlorine from making my cheeks red raw.. I use it on my elbows when they are dry.. I literally use it on so many areas that need a little extra care and protection. Love love love this balm.. Along with all Obvs products.. 😀I have very sensitive skin and eczema.. so all year round this balm and obvs skincare is my no.1 go to. Oh yeah and I also use this balm on my nails, I find it helps keep them strong and healthy looking. (I trying to remember all the things I use this balm for hahaha 😆) The list could go on forever 🤣

Thank you so much for your amazing review of our Organic Balm! We're so glad to hear that you love it and find it so versatile. We know that our balm is a favorite among people with sensitive skin and eczema, and we're thrilled to hear that it's your go-to product year-round.

We love your idea of using the balm on your nails to keep them strong and healthy. We've never heard of that before, but it makes perfect sense! The shea butter in our balm is rich in vitamins A and E, which are essential for healthy skin and nails.

We're so grateful for your support of Obvs Skincare. It means the world to us to hear from customers like you who love our products.
