Our aim is simple - Help you connect with the healing abilities of mother nature in a practical and ethical way every day.
SO WHY SHOULD YOU USE OUR VEGAN & NATURAL SKIN PRODUCTS?
Caring for your health -
We take your health very seriously! Our skin, just like our digestive system absorbs up to 60% of the ingredients we apply to it through our bloodstream, so what we put on our skin is very important. If you want to lead a healthy lifestyle, choosing natural and healthy skin products is central.
Animal products can be quite harsh on the skin and clog your skin pores - for example Diazolidinyl Urea which is a preservative that is often used in skin products. it can be extracted from urine and other bodily fluids from animals.... (mmmm) and there is strong evidence that it’s a human toxin and allergen.
Choosing plant derived ingredients is better for your skin, as plants contain more vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to help heal your skin.
Caring for the environment
Our balms are made without any harm to animals (not tested on animals) and they don't contain any animal ingredients so they are ethically made. We also use eco-friendly packaging so it's a win-win! our balms care for you and care for your environment!
Mindful skin care
Thich Nhat Hanh who is a buddhist monk talks about the concept of minfulness - paying attention to what you do. Really engaging with it, with all your senses. ‘When you pay attention to the apple, this is mindfulness. Then you look more deeply and in just a very short time you will see the apple seed, the beautiful orchard and the sky, the rain, the sun, the farmer, the picker and so on. The whole cosmos is in this apple’
At Be Better Balms we believe that we could apply this concept also to when we feed our skin, so being in touch, being aware of what we put on our skin, a chance to pause, and really concentrate on what we are doing – feeding and healing our skin. When you really concentrate on this, you will naturally find that your movements are softer, that it’s important for you - what you put on your skin, what is in the product you are using, is it natural, is it good for you.
We are constantly inundated with ads that tell us we cannot have good skin without buying this and that product. We as customers need to know what actually goes in our skin care and then make our choices. At the moment this industry is not very well regulated and when you go to the store to make your choice it becomes challenging ...it seems we need a degree in chemistry to understand the ingredients. We don’t know a lot of the products we are putting on our skin and absorbing into our bodies. This is the reason why at Be Better Balms we only use 100% natural ingredients that are close to their natural state as possible. We want you, our valued customer to know what you are putting on your skin and this is why we make sure to explain what goes in our balms and why - read here about the good stuff...
