For all skin types, especially super sensitive, reactive and damaged
**As with all natural ingredients we sometimes see variances. The current lanolin available to us has a stronger, earthy aroma than previous batches. This is completely normal and does not affect it’s therapeutic benefits.
I created this balm for my cracked nipples (sorry boys!) when breastfeeding my first baby and it was a miraculous healer and soother. It has since been the only thing I ever used on sore bottoms, cuts, grazes, skin rashes etc often with dramatic overnight success. I got so many regular requests from all my parent friends that I decided to make it an official product.
- 50% certified organic ingredients, 50% medical grade lanolin
- All the wonderful benefits of lanolin (see below) in an easy to use gel-like balm
- Chamomile is cooling and anti-inflammatory
- Calendula actively heals the skin by promoting collagen production
- Jojoba oil moisturizes and soothes irritated skin without being heavy or greasy
- Lanolin mimics our skin’s natural lipids, allowing our skin to breathe and retain large quantities of water (Learn more about lanolin below)
- Gentle enough for babies and broken skin
Lanolin is extracted from the oils found on the wool of sheep. Sheep wool grows continuously so needs to be sheared annually to prevent the wool overgrowing and causing the sheep problems. The lanolin is then removed in a washing process. So lanolin is a cruelty-free by-product of the wool industry.
The composition of fats and water that make up lanolin are almost identical to the fats and water in our human skin. It deeply moisturizes (both with oils and water) our skin while allowing it to breathe. No plant oils can mimic our skin so closely. This makes lanolin so perfect for very dry and damaged skin.
In the ’80s lanolin got a bad reputation and was considered an irritant to our skin. It was later discovered that the irritations and reactions were not to the lanolin itself but to residual pesticides and chemicals used during bad farming practices. The lanolin I use is thoroughly cleaned and tested resulting in a medical grade product. Unfortunately there is no certified organic lanolin on the market at this time. Medical grade lanolin is considered incredibly safe, it is used on open wounds in hospitals, and recommended for cracked nipples of nursing mothers.
Lanolin is incredibly sticky and unpleasant to use when used as is. I blend mine with jojoba oil infused with beneficial herbs to create this easy to apply, smooth gel.
If plant oils are not providing the moisture and healing benefits you need, try lanolin!

I have been using the balm for less than a month now. But right after the first day of use, I was amazed by how it kept my skin hydrated until the following day. I use it on my legs as they have been severely dehydrated. Unlike a lot of products you can buy in general health stores, this balm keeps you hydrated with just one application a day, and you do not need to put much on. I will reorder this product. Thank you Helena. KG

Repair Balm is the perfect moisture trap for me, it locks in any skin product you might use, like a serum.. In fact, it’s all I use morning and night after cleansing. A bit goes a long way. Im allergic to most skincare products, especially the high end ones. Luckily, I have inherited glowing skin from my mother! I’m ordering a few jars for my favorite friends! If you refrigerate it, it will stay fresh for a long time. I simply adore it! Thank you for a natural balm.

I use this for my eczema and it works great!

Love this product! Suffering from an eczema outbreak that I’m having the hardest time kicking and I put a bit of the salve on every time I wash my hands. It helps to soothe and hydrate my skin like nothing else. Thank you!

We’ve used the repair balm on road rash, healing cuts and scrapes and burns. It’s worked great. My kids ask to use it any time they need first aid.

I’m back to report on my very favorite skin food! The serum is truly unique. I’ve just ordered two jars to take overseas with me. I’ve been using it for two years now. All year round! Yes, in the tropics too, just a dot goes a long way. Never, never stop making this!

I won’t, don’t worry! Thank you!

This Repair Balm is a staple in my house. I have 2 young children who often have severely dry hands, cracked knuckles or itchy bums 🙂 This balm works quickly and safely so no need to purchase petroleum based products!
Thank you for making such a fabulous product Helena! I tell all my friends about this must have as I use it too!

This balm is amazing! In the time of COVID-19 and constant hand washing, this should be in everyone’s cabinet. My partner is a hospital worker and had severely cracked hands and this balm cleared them up after a single application. A little goes a long way, so you can dab a tiny bit on cracked lips or rosacea bumps as I have, and work the rest into the back of your hands or around your cuticles. I’ve recommended this to others and am happy to recommend it here – thank you Helena!

Such a useful balm for anywhere! I am enjoying using it as a perfect neck and chest balm for extra moisture.

I use this balm for my baby as his everyday diaper barrier cream and it’s amazing. He has very sensitive skin and also cures his diaper rash really well. This is a wonderful product for babies as well as adults.
Farida Haque (verified owner) – :
I’ve been here before to rave about the balm. I carry it overseas, tropics, actually, and it stays fresh and emollient as ever! Under foundation, it protects the skin since many foundations tend to dry skin out. It’s my miracle healer. Please don’t ever stop making it!!! There’s nothing like it on the market. ❤️🌟

Living in Alberta – dry winters, I bought the chamonile & calendula repair balm hoping it would alleviate dry skin. This balm is wonderful! I use only a very tiny amount on my face; and it provides a nourishing and luminous texture. Highly recommend this product.

After trying this repair balm with my young kids I never went back to other products. It’s the only thing that works. I love it.
