This artisan couple, Jonathan & Kaycie, has been making soap since 2011. Like so many they were ready to kick the commercial soaps and washes to the curb. After their first batch of soap, they were hooked and thus began The Sudsy Soapery Natural Products out of St. Louis, MO.
In keeping with their natural philosophy, their balm is specifically formulated for skin-nourishing benefits without the chemicals of so many other brands. Instead of emulsifying wax (most often petroleum-based), they sought naturally-derived ingredients to provide that emulsifying and preserving. They landed on a base of hemp and mango oils (two "less greasy" oils that moisturize and allow your pores to breathe), then they added witch hazel (astringent to constrict body tissue to aid in reducing bleeding from microscopic cuts and abrasions.) Finally, glycerin for moisture retention and Tocopherol Acetate & grapefruit seed extract are included to naturally preserve this balm.
Although all their products are natural, this one takes it up another notch. It contains no added essential oil or color. The only aroma you might detect would be the natural aromas of the raw ingredients. In this case, witch hazel lends a slightly sweet fragrance to this balm.
