Natrabalm is a 100% natural product – it contains no synthetic ingredients, no drugs, no parabens, no fragrances and no paraffin.

Our secret lies in our in-depth knowledge of the range and efficacy of natural ingredients.

This has enabled us to avoid synthetic petro-chemical ingredients like Paraffin found in many skin creams, so cutting out their potential side effects and allergies. To read more about the dangers of using Paraffin based creams click here.

Instead we use natural oils and plant extracts like calendula, olive leave extract, aloe vera, jojoba, shea butter and witch hazel to hydrate and replenish skin the natural way.

Calendula
Calendula, or Pot Marigold as it is commonly called, will rapidly soothe red itchy skin. This plant extract is one of nature’s most effective ingredients for calming dry itchy skin. It is also anti-inflammatory and will quickly get to work relieving the red inflamed skin caused by scratching.
Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has remarkable skin soothing properties, deeply moisturising and hydrating dry, sensitive skin. Its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects reduce redness and help neutralise harmful skin bacteria.
Jojoba
Jojoba oil is a rich ester extracted from the Jojoba seed. The oil reinforces and repairs the skin’s natural barrier function to lock in moisture, keep the skin soft and supple and help prevent bacterial penetration. Jojoba oil is especially effective at nourishing dry skin and moisturising away the itching that dryness can cause.
Shea butter
Shea butter is extracted from the nut of the African Shea tree. Containing natural vitamins A, E and F Shea butter penetrates deep into the skin providing the essential fatty acids to boost collagen production and replenish dry skin. Like jojoba, shea butter also provides an excellent moisture barrier to help prevent skin moisture loss.
Natural Glycerin
Glycerin is a skin-replenishing and restoring ingredient used in many cosmetic products. The version of Glycerin we use is 100% natural from vegetables. Glycerin is a an humectant and draws moisture into the skin to eradicate dry skin.
Witch Hazel
Witch hazel has strong anti-oxidant properties and is a naturally powerful anti-itch compound. Witch hazel is used to soothe the unbearable itch associated with eczema prone skin. It is also an excellent natural antiseptic and is often used in skin care products for its antibacterial properties.
Liquorice root extract
Traditionally used in Chinese medicine, but less well known in the west, liquorice root is anti-inflammatory and relieves atopic skin. It also reduces skin redness, soothes itching and is a superb skin conditioner.
Emu oil
Emu oil has been used for centuries by the Australian Aborigines for its anti-inflammatory properties. It contains a balance of essential fatty acids (Omegas 3, 6 and 9) which play a big role in replenishing new skin cells. The natural fats in Emu oil match those found in human skin so that they replenish and repair damaged sensitive the skin. The oil penetrates deep into the skin and rapidly carries ingredients into the skin’s epidermal layers enabling those ingredients to get to work quickly and effectively.
Olive leaf extract
Olive leaf extract is a very effective, fully natural, broad spectrum, antibacterial and antioxidant. Specifically, it has been proven to be proof against the staphylococcus aureus bacterium which is often to be found on human skin and is thought to be the root cause of some eczema conditions (see beeswax below). We only use the finest Olive leaf extract available with a minimum 80% Oleuropein content. Oleuropein is found naturally in olive leaves and is probably one of natures best antimicrobial ingredients keeping harmful bacterial at bay. Not only is it natural it is also allergen free with no nasty sensitisers or side effects.
Beeswax
Pure, natural beeswax is anti-inflammatory and reinforces the skin’s natural barrier. The outer skin layer performs the vital barrier function of both retaining moisture within the skin and preventing bacteria penetrating and infecting the inner layers. This barrier function is absolutely critical. Modern dermatological research has shown that when irritated skin is scratched, it can damage the barrier, allowing infected bacteria to enter. This is thought to be one of the triggers for eczema. Natrabalm’s unique combination of beeswax with tea tree oil helps fortify the barrier and kills the bacteria before they can penetrate the deeper skin layers.
