Salve: Your Sunshine (and Sunburn) Essential

So the best thing about buying a product that was specifically designed for inflammation and irritation, is the benefits it can bring to other things that are, uh, inflamed and irritated. 


Read: Sunburns. 


Our multi-use Salve was specifically designed with your most sensitive areas in mind so a full slather of this on the rest of your body is going to be nothing but a good thing. 


The main reason this Salve is a game changer *ahem* skin savior is its nutrient dense formulation. 


The key ingredients that help soothe skin after overexposure to sun: 


Calendula: One of the most studied and hard hitting ingredients for burns is known to promote circulation to the dermis and enhance connective tissue regeneration at the basement membrane. Research is limited, but Calendula is also believed to facilitate wound healing via promotion of glycoprotein and collagen synthesis, hastening dermal regeneration.


Jojoba Oil: Containing vast amounts of Vitamin E, a strong antioxidant, helps reduce inflammation and speed up cell regeneration both in the body and skin helping comfort and heal sunburns faster. 

Echinacea: Echinacea contains several compounds that reduce the loss of collagen in the skin. Helping long term and overall health of the skin especially when dealing with skin over exposure 


Oregon Grape: One of our most versatile ingredients is known for its antimicrobial properties (including its anti-fungal, antibacterial, and anti-parasitic action), immune-boosting, and anti-inflammatory properties. Crucial in the sunburn healing process 


Tea Tree: We all know how itchy a sunburn can be. A classic herb like Tea Tree Oil has been used for centuries to address itchiness and inflammation and is suitable for all skin types.
