A salve is an ointment, lotion or paste used to heal damaged skin or to protect the skin. Organic salves are so popular as they contain pure botanicals and no artificial ingredients or perfume.
Eczema and Dermatitis are distressing skin conditions that lead to:
- Dry, Itchy , Red Skin
- Split and crack
- Flake and peel
- Burn and sting
- Small blisters
I was in touch with a company called SeaBuckThorn (SBT) and I was given the opportunity to review some products. The company kindly sent me generous samples to test and share my views. The product I am reviewing today is SeaBuckThorn Eczema & Dermatitis Soothing Salve. It is a genuine review for all of you.
Seabuckthorn is an amazing ingredient that grows high in the Tibetan Himalayas (12,000 feet above sea level) as a tiny but resilient fruit that resists the harsh weather conditions and high altitudes. The sea buckthorn berry fortifies itself against the elements by producing an array of powerful nutrients like Vitamins, flavonoids, minerals, phytonutrients, antioxidants, Omega 3, 6, and 9, as well as the rare Omega-7 fatty acids. With over 190 bioactive compounds, Sea buckthorn is a natural product with 1300 years of traditional uses. It contains everything vital for your healthy skin, nail, hair and body.
Each of the fine essential oils in our Eczema & Dermatitis Salve was selected for its well established activity in treating the often painful effects of Eczema and Dermatitis. The exceptional healing capacities of Seabuckthorn Oils and Helichrysum Oil are well documented. Rosehip Oil and Pomegranate Oil help to restore softness and suppleness to dry, scaly patches and Chamomile Oil calms the uncomfortable itching that accompanies Eczema and Dermatitis. Apply generously to affected areas as often as required.
Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Certified Sustainable Palm Oil, Organic SBT Seabuckthorn Seed Oil, Organic SBT Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil, Chamomile Oil, Pomegranate Oil, Rosehip Oil, Helichrysum Oil, Rosewood Oil.
Price: $20 for 4 oz
The product comes in an oversized orange, white and teal tin. The packaging is practical and nice. The cap became bit loose after a few uses. This type of packaging is only best suited for a salve so I have no complaints. I would love to see smaller sized travel friendly versions also.
The product has a balmy texture and is vibrant mango yellow in color. It has a hard consistency in the tin but it melts as soon as it gets in contact with the skin.
The ingredients are nourishing with the goodness of Seabuckthorn. The thick consistency turns into oily one as it gets in touch with skin. It spreads, glides and gets absorbed quickly.
It has a mild pleasant fragrance. The fragrance is not the best but it is not overpowering, pungent or bothersome.
I have eczema kind of some irritations in both arms and feet. It turns red and gets itchy due to its inflammation at times. It gets worse when the skin parts are exposed to the sun. I had consulted many dermatologists and nothing works for it. I have been suffering from this for past 3 to 4 years.
You need to scrap a small amount of the salve from the tin and warm it in your palms to create an emollient texture. For the initial uses you have to scoop the product out but after a few uses you will see a even creamy texture.
I love this balm because it is multipurpose. You can use certain salves from this range on cuticles, hands, heels and even hair! They are so compact and easy for carry. The hard consistency in tin makes it free from any oil spills. It repairs, soothes and heals my irritated damaged skin. It keeps my skin smooth and soft.You can reapply this anytime !
