Handcrafted in small batches!
We use it for:
Barrier Balm is a superb multi-purpose ointment. We use it mostly for sun protection, though the FDA won't allow us to call it sunscreen until we go through their expensive and time-consuming testing process. Created by Mama to protect our skin from the hot Texas sun while working, playing sports, and cooling off in the local rivers. We have also used it on vacation while enjoying winter sports to protect from the sun and wind.
Customers have reported great success using Barrier Balm to protect injured skin as it heals.
Barrier Balm is also wonderful as a diaper ointment due to the zinc oxide in the recipe.
Our zinc is pure and non-nano sized, so it won't absorb into your skin - it stays on the surface as a barrier.
Ingredients: coconut oil, extra virgin olive oil from the Central Texas Olive Ranch, 100% natural sun-bleached beeswax, shea butter and pure non-nano sized zinc oxide
*non-nano sized means the particles aren't small enough to be absorbed by the skin or small enough to reach the alveoli (the part of your lungs where oxygen exchange happens) when inhaled
TOTALLY FRAGRANCE FREE
Note: This product does NOT contain any chemical emulsifiers or stabilizers. In colder weather, the balm may become grainy feeling. This is a natural reaction of the oils to the cooler temperatures. The balm will melt when rubbed into the warmth of your skin.
