We’ve finally been dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century. Not only do we have a new website, we have A BLOG.
We’ll use this space to give occasional updates about our company and products, general skin care information and tips on healthy living for people and pets in general.
As you can see from the website, we are a small company focused on making all-natural balms for the hands & body. When we started making balms, our focus was on finding an alternative to the petroleum-based, chemical-filled products that pass for mainstream skincare and beauty products.
The skin is your largest organ and a porous one at that. What you put on your skin eventually ends up inside your body. If you want to live a healthy lifestyle, what you put on your body may be just as important as what you put in your body.
Many of the ingredients found in mainstream skincare products are a toxic brew of chemicals and irritants that have been linked to health problems such as cancer, endocrine disruption, reproductive problems, and asthma. Below is a list of ingredients in a typical foot care cream:
Eucerin Intensive Repair Extra-Enriched Foot Crème:
Glycerin Urea Cetearyl Alcohol Sodium Lactate Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Petrolatum Ethylhexyl Cocoate Hydrogenated Coco-Glycerides Octyldodecanol Aluminum Starch Octenylsuccinate Dimethicone Sorbitan Stearate Peg-40 Castor Oil Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate Carbomer Lactic Acid Phenoxyethanol
Contrast that with the ingredients in:
Naked Bear Natural’s Foot Balm:
Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Organic Sunflower Seed Oil, Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Pure Essential Oils of Tea Tree, Rosemary & Spearmint
Our philosophy has always been that if you can’t pronounce it without a chemistry degree, it’s probably not a good idea to be putting it on your body.
