Sometimes you want a product that does it all. This one tries its best – with an almost matte finish. Our waterless, conditioning and protective multi-purpose balm is made from repairing argan oil and softening oat oil, with bisabolol to soothe and heal. Hydrogenated rapeseed oil and sunflower wax give it a non-greasy yet solid feel.
Developed and made in Finland.
Preservative, fragrance and cruelty free.
Shelf life: 12 months.
Jar made of light protective uv-glass, lid made of urea.
Please note, that our All-Around Balm contains high amounts of argan oil. If you are allergic to nuts, you should always consult your doctor and patch test before using this product.
1. Use for chapped lips, dry cuticles, small scrapes, bumps and spots, protection from the elements, your entire face - anywhere you need some extra soothing, softening or protective care.
2. Warm a small amount between clean, dry fingers and gently pat onto skin. Our balm is a dense and rich product, so a little goes a long way. Swipe your finger for a light coating on lips or scoop up a small amount for your entire face. The product will soften in use and warmer weather.
3. Can be used on its own or layered over serums, oils, creams etc. Works well under makeup and is great on kids, too.
4. Tip: give cheeks a bit of glow by patting a small amount over your blusher.
Argania spinosa kernel oil - Argan oil
Argan oil is a staple for us. It is obtained from kernels of Moroccan Argania Spinosa, i.e. argan nuts. We love it in almost everything, and especially like its repairing qualities. It is slightly higher in oleic acid, but is usually suitable for clog prone skin. Argan oil contains a fair amount of lupeol, which has anti-inflammatory properties.
Avena sativa kernel oil - Oat kernel oil
Oat oil has a nearly 50/50 balance of oleic and linoleic acids. From a skincare point of view, it's an excellent skin softener and has some calming properties too. We source our oat oil from Fazer, a Finnish family-owned, 126-year-old food and food service company, who make their oil in Finland, using Finnish oats. The Finnish-ness matters because a) the soil in Finland produces outstanding quality oats and b) it is quite rare for an oil producer to have a 100% local supply chain. Markku, who is head of R&D at the oat mill in Lahtis, tells us he has personally eaten all oat products that Fazer makes – including the oil.
Hydrogenated rapeseed oil
Hydrogenated rapeseed oil is the reduced, or dried, form of rapeseed or canola oil. We use it to lend structure and a nearly matte finish to our balm. There is some debate as to whether hydrogenation alters the properties of an oil. Regardless, rapeseed as such is a good base oil in skincare and is generally well tolerated. It has a similar fatty acid profile to argan oil.
Helianthus annuus seed wax - Sunflower seed wax
Sunflower wax is a hard vegetable wax made through the winterisation of sunflower seed oil. We use it for solidity and a light feel. Sunflower oil on its own is a basic, widely used and well tolerated oil for skincare. The kind we favour is high in linoleic acid, and the wax we use is made from high linoleic sunflower oil.
Bisabolol is a colorless viscous oil that is the main constituent of German chamomile essential oil. The bisabolol we use is organic, and produced not from chamomille but from the South American Candeia tree, and contains no farnesol. Bisabolol is known to have anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties, with studies demonstrating natural bisabolol to be more effective than its synthetic counterpart.
Tocopherol - Vitamin E
Tocopherol, or vitamin E, is a common antioxidant for fats and oils used in skincare. We use a synthetic, 100% pure food grade variety at a minimal percentage, to prevent rancidity in our balm.
