Recover Balm is a calming moisturizer and an antibacterial/antifungal balm that combines soothing botanicals, (including black currant seed, lavender, sea buckthorn, jojoba and shea butter), with propolis extract from bees, plus vitamin E. Recover Balm is recommended for stressed, flaking, and irritated skin, and for use following clinical skin treatments like microdermabrasion, IPL, laser, clinical skin needling, and chemical peels. Recover Balm makes an excellent addition to the first aid cabinet.
Recover Balm was re-formulated in mid 2018, to remove the pungent-smelling manuka oil and replace it with propolis extract.
Propolis Extract – made by the worker bees to build, repair, and strengthen the hive, forming a barrier against bacteria due to its remarkable antimicrobial properties. Propolis extract treats minor skin infections without antibiotics.
Castor bean oil – inhibits the growth of many viruses, bacteria, yeasts, and molds, and is recommended as an antimicrobial, for acneic skin, ringworm, keratoses, warts, scars, and fungal infections. Castor bean oil reduces inflammation and increases skin immunity.
Sea buckthorn oil – rich in vitamins A, E, C, and K, used topically as a natural anti-inflammatory treatment for burns, scars and skin types that are sensitive or prone to dryness or acne.
Shea butter – helps retain the skin’s natural moisture content without ‘choking’ it (unlike mineral oils and petrolatum).
Lavender essential oil – one of the gentlest essential oils to calm skin, it is also a powerful antibacterial agent to protect from post-treatment infection.
Apply as often as needed to affected areas, following clinical treatments. Recommended for minor burns, athlete’s foot, and other minor skin irritations.
This product contains beeswax, so is not suitable for vegans.
