Don't let the name fool you! Our Nipple + Belly Balm is multipurpose and a best-seller, even for men. Yup, men! So much so that we're now selling it as our Repair Balm so they don't have to walk around with this label ;)
So what makes this balm so fantastic?! Let's take a look at its repairing ingredients :)
Organic Fair-Trade Unrefined Raw Shea Butter: Moisturizes, nourishes, and heals dry skin. Shea butter is loaded with vitamins and fatty acids that help give it its nourishing, anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties, including:
- Vitamin A: Rich antioxidant that heals and prevents scars by strengthening our skin’s outer layer
- Vitamin E: Moisturizing antioxidant that heals and soothes irritated skin
- Oleic Acid: Soothing fatty acid that softens skin and repairs damaged cells present in skin conditions like eczema
- Stearic Acid: Essential fatty acid that creates a protective barrier on the skin and helps lock in moisture
- Cinnamic Acid: Unique acid with highly anti-inflammatory and gentle UV protection qualities that assist with healing
Organic Olive Oil Infused with Organic Calendula Flowers: Soothing, healing oil with natural anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Gentle enough for babies, yet strong enough to heal skin irritations such as rashes, cuts, eczema and chapped skin.
Organic Olive Oil Infused with Organic Chamomile Flowers: Gentle, calming oil with natural antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties that soothe inflamed, irritated, tender, and broken skin.
Our Favorite Uses + Tips

Belly Massage: Nothing beats a massage with organic healing ingredients! The soothing sweet scents of chamomile and calendula will not only help relax you as you massage your belly, but they will also work their magic to heal and lighten those stretch marks. Simply rub onto belly and gently massage in soft, circular motions.
Tip: Warm a small amount between your fingertips before massaging.
Lighten Stretch Marks + Scars: This balm is great for lightning stretch marks and scars, thanks to the raw shea butter and calendula combination. Simply massage a small amount onto affected areas twice a day. Continue daily application until stretch marks and scars are barely visible.

Heal Minor Cuts + Scrapes: Noy only will our Nipple + Belly Balm heal minor cuts and scrapes, it's also super soothing and can help take reduce that initial sting! While the raw shea butter creates a nourishing and protective barrier on the skin, the calendula and chamomile infused olive oils work to reduce inflammation and fight bacteria growth.
Tip: Wash cuts and scrapes with cold water and apply a small amount 2-3 times a day.
Moisturize Dry, Winter Skin: I love using this balm at night as a daily body butter to nourish and hydrate my thirsty skin in Chicago's drying winter months. The sweet smell of chamomile and calendula is also super relaxing before going to bed ;)
Tip: Works best when applied after bathing while skin is still moist.
