Olive Oil: Olive oil is a wonderful, rich oil that is food safe and creates a wonderful barrier to help seal in moisture (1). It is slow absorbing and helps to keep the skin hydrated. This is excellent in cases of sore, chapped or dried out skin that needs a protective barrier to heal. Olive oil is also known to be anti-inflammatory (2) which will help soothe irritated skin. Some reports also indicate it may help with wound healing (3).

Calendula Flower: Calendula is known to be one of the best herbs for local skin problems. It is a safe herb to use whenever there is inflammation either due to infection or physical damage (Hoffman). The anti-inflammatory activity of calendula extract is proven useful for injured skin and conditions such as psoriasis, contact dermatitis, rosacea and eczema (4).

Marshmallow Root: Marshmallow root is a beautiful demulcent (moistening and protective of mucous membranes) and emollient (softening and soothing) herb. This herb is very soothing for any mucous membrane irritations anywhere (Hoffman).

Chickweed: Known to many as a common herb that chickens like to eat, chickweed is a fantastic herb for skin. It is demulcent and emollient and offers wonderful healing to sensitive skin. Minor burns, lesions, acne, wounds, eczema, insect bites and psoriasis all may be soothed by chickweed. Used topically, it helps to soothe inflamed and irritated skin (Hoffman).

Cocoa Butter: Cocoa butter is full of fatty acids and the potent anti-oxidant, vitamin E which protects the skin and prevents further damage (5). It has the potential to help heal dried out and damaged skin and moisturize. Due to the polyphenols and flavonoids in its composition, cocoa butter helps reduce inflammation of the skin and prevents damage. The same polyphenols may boost skin elasticity and prevent aging (6). I use only organic, unrefined and food grade cocoa butter in my formulas.

Mango Butter: Vegetable oils and butters including mango butter have been shown to have very promising effects on skin and wound healing due to their fatty acid profiles. Their antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and anti-oxidative activities promote cell proliferation, increase collagen synthesis, stimulate dermal reconstruction, and repair the skin's lipid barrier function (7). Mango butter contains vitamins A, C and E which are valuable for skin health and healing.

Beeswax: I use only unrefined, organic beeswax in my formulas. It creates a moisture barrier that helps to seal in the emollient goodness of the oils and butters. When used in combination with quality oils and fats, beeswax has been shown to help bolster wound healing (8). Beeswax has lubricating and softening activities and reduces trans-epidermal water loss from skin. Squalene, 10-hydroxy-trans-2-decenoic acid and flavonoids provide antiseptic properties to beeswax, and protect the skin against pathogenic microorganisms. Beeswax creates a protective barrier against many external factors by forming a film on the skin's surface and is a safe alternative to petroleum. β-carotene present in beeswax is a valuable source of vitamin A which delays collagen degradation, stimulates mitotic division in the epidermis, thus leads to sooner regeneration of the skin after damage (9).

Butter Pearls: C 10-18 triglycerides or butter pearls, are an up-cycled ingredient made from the discarded portions of olives when creating olive oil. They are completely biodegradable and provide emollient properties and a protective barrier. They contain palmitic and stearic fatty acids. C10-18 triglycerides contribute a rich, silky skin feel and boosts stability.

Tocopherol: I use unrefined organic tocopherol derived from wheat germ in my formulas. Tocopherol (vitamin E) is a potent anti-oxidant that reduces rancidity in a product and adds skin healing and wound healing benefits. Many studies document that vitamin E plays a central role as an efficient antioxidant that protects skin from the adverse effects of oxidative stress (10, 11).

The best!

This is wayyy better than anything youll find in a store! I hated that Lansilo stuff or whatever it was called.. I'll never use anything else!

Must-have for nursing mamas!

This stuff is great for those early days of chapped, injured nipples. It's a hard enough postpartum transition period without having to worry about what creams my babies are ingesting so that I can get some relief for my poor, poor nips. This stuff is all food-based, safe ingredients for my newborn and rubs on so soft and gentle onto my skin. I have also used it on my newborn's hands and face to help with dry skin, since I know its safe if she gets it in her mouth.

Thank you for this review. I'm so happy to hear this <3


My child clusterfeeds and had lip and tongue ties until we got them revised recently. Needless to say, mama is often chapped, blistered, sore, and cracked. This nipple balm has been a total lifesaver and I wish I'd discovered it much sooner especially during the first 2 months after delivery! After trying the top 2 most popular organic brands on the market and them doing close to no effect, I can tell you that this nipple balm makes a night and day difference to my pain level, soreness, and healing! It was almost hard to believe how big the difference was, but it has worked time and again! It's so easy to spread too and smells like cocoa butter but not in a strong off-putting way like some popular cocoa butter products do. A little goes a long way and it has lasted me a great amount of time!
