What’s in Nipbalm?
Organic Refined Shea Butter: Shea butter is renowned for its skin moisturizing properties and can help soothe burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, dandruff, and stretch marks. Shea butter contains vitamins A and E and has demonstrated both antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Organic Beeswax: Beeswax forms a protective wall and seals in moisture without clogging pores. Beeswax carries antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial properties.
Organic Cocoa Butter: Forms a protective layer which holds in moisture while softening and lubricating the skin.
Calendula-infused sunflower oil: Sunflower oil acts as an emulsifier, surfactant, thickening agent, and emollient. Very light and great for dry, damaged, and sensitive skin. Calendula petals have been known to have anti-inflammatory and wound-healing properties.
Chickweed-infused castor oil: Castor oil is a cold-pressed oil that acts as a humectant, helping draw moisture to the skin and providing a protective barrier to protect against moisture loss. Chickweed has healing properties and contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B12, C, and D.
Vitamin E: 100% pure and natural blend of tocopherols which helps slow down oil-based products’ natural oxidation process and extend shelf life.
Why doesn’t Snugabell use Lanolin?
Lanolin is a popular ingredient in mainstream nipple products, used as an emollient to lock in moisture and prevent water loss. Lanolin is a greasy yellow substance made from secretions (sebum) from the skin glands of sheep to condition their wool. It is a natural, animal-derived product harvested from shorn wool. Livestock owners routinely treat sheep with pesticides and lanolin is known to have pesticide residue. Contamination levels vary and aren’t generally high enough to be immediately dangerous; however, with so many other options to prevent transepidermal water loss, Snugabell has chosen to play it safe and avoid lanolin.
