The Organic Balm

The Organic Balm

Free From Skincare Awards Finalist 2022!

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.

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.

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

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

Helps With - For those prone to extremely dry skin, cracked nipples, chaffing, sore lips. Can be used on face and body.

15ml Plant Based Pot

What It Helps With

Suitable for adults and children, the Organic Balm is fantastic for those prone to dry lips, cracked nipples (safe for breastfeeding - no need to wipe off), chaffing and extra dry bits of skin.

Ingredients

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 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.

Directions For Use

Apply a small amount to the lips or skin and rub in gently.  Suitable for body and face.  Always do a patch test first.  Discontinue use if irritation occurs.  Use within 12 months of opening.  Suitable for breastfeeding mums and babies. No need to wipe off before baby latches.

Store in a cool, dry place - away from direct sunlight.

Doubt I’ll go back to using Vaseline

I wanted a moisturiser to keep my lips soft and protected and Obvs Organic Balm is perfect. Texture wise, I loved its satin-like feel over how greasy products like Vaseline can be. Also, I never feel it ‘wear off’, it seems to absorb really well. Beautiful product, adore the packaging and quite frankly, I doubt I’ll buy a little blue tin again!

Amazing!!

This has been my go to balm while I’ve got covid and it’s been amazing for my lips that had started to crack and for my sore nose form using tissues so much. Since applying this balm a couple of times a day my skin feels amazing! So much better and no where near as sore!

I would 100% recommend it to anyone for any dry areas but especially if suffering from covid or colds or flu! It’s a must have for the medical box! 💖

Really recommend the new organic balm.

My daughter had a really nasty graze on her face from falling at school. She was so upset and self conscious about it but she applied the organic balm and it really helped it to heal so quickly and without scabbing over. Such a gentle yet super effective product, so many fab uses.

Perfect lip protector

I only started using this lovely balm recently as an alternative to petroleum jelly but so far it’s been brilliant. I spend a lot of time outside with horses and dogs so always looking for something to protect my lips from becoming sore. This balm has a lovely consistency not too thick but brilliant at doing it’s job and protecting. Another fab product to add to my collection from Obvs

Treat for lips and dry bits

I brought this balm to add to my beautiful collection of Obvs skin care creams. I love it! The balm makes my lips so soft and smooth, it doesn’t make them feel like they are ‘coated’ . It’s also really good for keeping finger and toes nail cuticles soft smooth and not all dry, as mine often are . Safe to use on babies , so brilliant for breast feeding mums on the sore nips. All round great investment for the makeup bag and medical cupboard. Not only good for your skin , but kind to the environment too. Highly recommended.
