Key Ingredients

Borage Oil is one of our favourites here at Boo! It is a fantastic source of GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid). GLA helps to regenerate, firm and rejuvenate the skin's barrier function and maintain skin elasticity. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant more effective than vitamin E, aids skin repair and soothes inflammation. Tannins create a dry feeling oil, whilst calming redness. Ellagic acid supports the production of collagen, preventing its breakdown and regenerating skin cells.

Camelina Oil is grown in North Yorkshire, where the seeds are gently pressed to release their oil.  It has traditionally been an important food source as a substitute for flax oil. High in vitamin E, omegas 3 and 6, camelina also makes a fabulous oil for skincare. It is quickly and easily absorbed, helping to keep your skin moisturised and elastic.

Beeswax, from right here in Somerset. It is extracted from the honeycombs once the honey has been removed. The colour of the wax varies depending on which flowers the bees have been visiting, so you may see slight colour variations in our balm due to this. The wax has a naturally sweet honey fragrance which comes through in the finished balm. Beeswax is naturally anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial, making it a fabulous choice for a soothing, repairing balm. It can form an occlusive layer on the skin, helping to lock in moisture. This keeps your skin soft and supple.

Calendula has a long standing reputation as an anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and soothing herb. It can help heal wounds and calm itchy, dry, irritated skin. It can also help to alleviate a range of skin conditions, including eczema and psoriasis.

Why You'll Love Calendula Balm

100% Natural Borage & Calendula Balm contains no synthetic ingredients. It is 100% natural.

100% British Formula contains
100% ingredients that are grown and produced in Britain. We love
supporting our local growers. Less travel time for ingredients means we
can all reduce our carbon footprint.

Cruelty Free All of our products are cruelty free. We never test on animals. All testing is done on ourselves and other willing humans! We are careful to check that none of our ingredients are tested on animals either.

Fragrance Free Borage &
Calendula Balm doesn't contain any essential oils as we wanted it to be
truly multi-purpose. It does have a natural scent that comes from the
botanicals, beeswax and rapeseed oil.

Palm oil free That’s an easy one – we don’t grow palm oil in the UK so it won’t be in our British Range… Not that we put it in any of our other products either!

Plastic free Proudly plastic free packaging. All our balms are packaged in amber glass jars with aluminium lids. We choose these as they’re easily returnable (we can reuse the jars to package more balms), reusable at home or you can recycle them.

So luxurious

I am using the balm on my skin for extra protection during the winter against the weather and central heating. It is amazing, it glides on and soaks in and I can see and feel the difference in my skin. I would be lost without this luxurious balm in my skincare routine.

I'm addicted to this balm

I have sensitive skin, prone to dryness, and have tried so many lotions, potions, balms and creams from all sorts of companies from local to Beauty Pie.
And this is the best by far; I absolutely love it and keep a jar by my bed and another in the kitchen.

Recommend for cracked skin ...

Amazing product. Tend to have dry skin around tops of my finger particularly my thumbs ( annoying when knitting as it catches on the wool!!!) Apply my balm as and when and it is certainly softening up the dry skin. Recommend. Very happy.
