My ceramics class ended early today so I spent the afternoon improving upon the formula of this deep purple skin balm. The color comes from the magic of the ingredients themselves! I made the balm to promote cell regeneration as well as to combat skin inflammation/irritations. Read more for ingredient details!
Blue tansy, blue chamomile and yarrow are all rich in azulene, giving the balm a dark tranquil blue hue. The balm gets its purple tones from the indigo and elderberry infused squalane. Azulene and indigo both have incredibly soothing properties when applied to skin and elderberry is high in antioxidants.
The balm also contains borage seed, evening primrose, marula, camellia and baobab seed oil. These oils are rich in healthy gamma linolenic acids and nutrients, helping improve overall skin health.
The base of the balm is comprised of kokum butter, shea butter, cocoa seed butter and beeswax which are all extremely nourishing and hydrating.
The blue tansy, indigo, marula and camellia oils are new additions to my formula to make it even better than before. I’ve been using my balms to heal my eczema and skin sensitivity and have been super pleased with the results! I use them overnight on my skin on the spots irritated from eczema and they have been reducing the redness and speeding up the healing process.
