Skin Saving Balm


Skin Saving Balm will soon become your new best friend if you happen to have dry, chapped, itchy skin or if you suffer from eczema, psoriasis or other dry skin conditions.

It’s been described by its many fans as ‘a wonder in a pot.’ For many it’s the go to product for difficult skin.

For more information see below.

Skin Saving Balm is an incredibly versatile, calendula based, one stop skin balm to use on dry skin, bumps, scrapes, bites and scratches, chapped lips, cuticles, spots and scars.

It has also proved to be extremely effective at treating the symptoms and subsequent itching that goes with eczema and psoriasis break outs.

And of course it’s Vegan!  Every home should have one!

How does Skin Saving Balm work?

I use both coconut and olive oils in Skin Saving Balm because they are wonderfully soothing on the skin.

I infuse these oils for at least 6 weeks with both lavender and calendula petals (from my garden).  This extracts every bit of goodness from the flower petals and infuses the oil with their incredible benefits.  Then I mix it with gorgeous jojoba and candelila waxes to both thicken boost the skin soothing qualities of this balm.

I then add a small amount of both lavender and tea tree organic essential oils.  These oils are incredibly calming and naturally antiseptic, so that any cuts, bites, spots, stings, and other minor skin problems can all be treated naturally with this little wonder in a pot!

Apply as and when needed.  For external use only.

All products are safety tested for normal adult use. Although all my products are as natural and gentle as possible please be aware the ingredients may, on rare occasions, cause irritation. If this happens discontinue use and seek medical advice. Any use of products on babies or small children is entirely at parents discretion.

    It’s all in the name! This is my must have product – if all else fails this will sort my skin out. Excellent for chapped lips too.

  2. Alison Dyson

    This is such a great product . I have terrible allergies & am extremely limited to product’s I can use on my skin. When my skin flares up & is sore this skin saving balm really helps to soothe & clear it. A little goes a long way. I can’t recommend this enough.

  3. Yvette

    I have psoriasis on my elbows and don’t like to use steroid creams so I use this instead. It doesn’t clear the psoriasis but it definitely helps to keep the skin smoother and less angry looking. It is also excellent for calming mosquito bites. It lasts a very long time as you really don’t need to use much at all. And as with all of Maldon Soaps products it is natural and smells lovely.

  4. Pam West

    I use this after showering and using the coconut and oat soap on my psoriasis patches and i find that it calms the redness and soreness and makes my skin feel a bit more normal. It’s brilliant stuff and I have also used it on my lips, cuticles, elbows, knees and heels. Marvelous stuff!

  5. Louise

    I bought this for my mum as a present and she has been raving about it! Will be re-ordering very soon and getting a pot for myself!

  6. Helen

    Skin Saving Balm is a little pot of magic! I use it practically everyday! It’s helped with eczema flare ups, insect bites, chapped rough skin and even prickly heat. This balm has become my ‘go to’ rescue remedy.

  7. whateveritis_idenyit

    I’ve been using this to combat dry/sore patches on my child’s very sensitive/delicate skin. It’s been brilliant- ultra gentle yet really soothing and effective. A tiny dab of this little beauty goes a very long way so the pot will last us ages. I’ve been keeping it in the fridge during this extreme heat as I find it easier to apply the right amount when it’s solid. Smells beautiful too which is a much appreciated bonus. A true gem of a product 🙂

  8. bacci102

    Love this- it has a nice and clean scent from the tea tree oil.
    I bought this as something to try on my rapidly expanding pregnant belly. A little goes a very long way! I didn’t expect it to soak in either but it did!
    What was unexpected but better was the outcome it has had on insect bites. I’ve been eaten alive by something in all this hot weather and I am covered in bites. I would usually have to take antihistamines but I can’t because I’m pregnant- this balm has taken the itch right out of all the bites. Amazing!

  9. Kate Carvey

    100% must have in our house, we use it on scratches, insect bites and scars. Perfection in a pot.

  10. Amy Mahoney

    Love this pot of goodness but found the texture a bit gummy – don’t know how else to describe it! Is really helpful with super dry patches that I get as a result of mild exema.

  11. Angela Stearn

    I am a new user of this wonderful balm. So far I have used it on scratches from pruning garden shrubbery, especially the roses. Can’t wait to try it on insect bites which I know I will get in abundance a few months down the line. I have great faith! x

  12. Alison Johnson

    This cream has been wonderfully soothing for my dry, chapped hands and it smells divine! A little goes a long way so it is very good value. I ordered it online and it came so beautifully packaged, I was delighted!

  13. Rianna

    I bought this for my 3 month old who is suffering with Eczema. The Dr prescribed her steroids which I was adamant I don’t want to use.
    I received the balm yesterday and put it on her before bed last night.
    Almost like magic all that is left is little dry patches this morning! I could cry I am so happy! Will definitely be purchasing more!

  14. Kate Carvey

    Another review for this little pot of wonder cream. I’m 5 weeks out of hospital after having keyhole surgery, once the wounds had healed I began putting this on. It’s kept the areas soft and smooth with no dryness or irritation at all. Love it 😊

  15. Sharon Woods

    I managed to fall over while dog walking on Good Friday and my chin whacked the ground, ending up with a deep cut and stitches on the front of my chin and a lovely bruise all the way down my neck. A few days later my lips were extremely sore and stinging round the edges and nothing was helping, so I decided to try the skin saving balm on my lips as we always have some in our household. It worked wonders, the soreness has gone, it did not sting and my lips weren’t as dry. Thank you Sue !

  16. ruth

    Really versatile product. Good for sore and dry skin and scars. Light formula, which many alternatives are not!

  17. Isobel

    Behind my ears I’m prone to eczema. I have purchased the tester of this so far and I’ll definitely be buying the full-size. A little does go a long way, but my skin feels so moisturised as opposed to tight and itchy. I’d really recommend this if you’re looking for a natural product to help! Also a nourishing lip balm too!

  18. Angela Stearn

    I love this product and make sure that I always have some in the house …. it has been effective on scrapes, bruises, bites, burns, dryness, everything …. it has even got rid of extremely dry skin that I get on one of my elbows. I now have the soap too to see if it will help my Covid over-washed hands.

  19. ms.natasha.bee

    My go to product for anything sore on my skin. Love the texture and how my skin soaks it in.

  20. Ann Craggs

    This stuff is wonderful! I bought a trial size tin to try and will now be ordering a full size one, i had a really sore and itchy bit on my hand, the bit in between thumb and finger, due to wearing a support brace for a while, so I used this balm and it instantly soothed the soreness and stopped the itching, so pleased! Thankyou Sue.

    This is great stuff! It smells lovely, lasts ages (without going hard or weird, too), and has multiple uses. I’m still using a small sample tin I got months ago, as I’ve recently found it works wonders for dry elbows, for my hands (dry skin) overnight, AND for lips that need some care and attention in the dry, cold weather of late.
    I’m getting more – in a decent size this time! We also just discovered it’s super helpful for my partner’s sore skin, too 🙂
