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.

These oils are infused for 6 weeks with both lavender and calendula petals (from my garden).  This increases its soothing abilities. I then mix it with gorgeous jojoba and candelila waxes and some agave nectar which all act to boost the skin soothing qualities of this balm.

Then I add some organic lavender and tea tree essential oils.  These essential 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.

Skin Saving Balm is now sold in very practical aluminium tins and is available in three sizes:

10g trial size tin. Ideal for handbag/pocket/glove box/gym bag size.  Great size to use as a lip balm.

30g medium size tin.

60g large size tin – for if you use it lots and can’t manage without it.

A little goes a very long way and even the small tin will last for ages and, of course, it’s vegan!

Quantative Ingredients of Skin Saving Balm:

organic coconut oil (cocos nucifera), organic extra virgin olive oil (olea europaea), organic jojoba wax (simmondsia chinensis), organic candelila wax (euphorbia cerifera), organic agave nectar, local calendula petals, local lavender petals, organic tea tree essential oil (maleluca alternifolia), organic lavender essential oil (lavandula angustifolia).

  1. Tash

    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 (verified owner)

    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. Vince

    I have used this balm (as a man!) on dry skin on my hands face, feet, everywhere! It really softens and calms chapped or dry skin, even on my big toes that get rough due to a lot of walking. Get it, you wont be disappointed!

  5. 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!

  6. Donna

    After developing a rash in a most inappropriate place I bought this cream as it’s natural. I can honestly say within 3 days it’s cleared and my skin is left very soft. Thank you so much.

    • Sue Mckenna

      Glad it was able to help Donna. xx

  7. 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!

  8. Helen (verified owner)

    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.

  9. whateveritis_idenyit (verified owner)

    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 🙂

  10. bacci102 (verified owner)

    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!

  11. Kate Carvey

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

  12. Amy Mahoney (verified owner)

    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.

  13. 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

  14. Alison Johnson (verified owner)

    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!

  15. Rianna (verified owner)

    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!

    • Sue Mckenna

      That is incredible news Rianna, I’m so glad it’s helped your little one! xx

  16. 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 😊

  17. 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 !

    • Sue Mckenna

      Oh poor you Sharon! And they say walking is good for you! Hope you’re recovering now. xx

  18. ruth (verified owner)

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

  19. Isobel (verified owner)

    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!

  20. 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.

  21. ms.natasha.bee (verified owner)

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