Lotions, Salves, Balms, and the like, are all what we call "leave on" products. This means that anything you put in them, is ok to be absorbed by the skin. If you let that last sentence soak in a bit (pun intended), and then go look at that bottle of lotion you purchased at the same time you bought new headphones, you might reconsider.
Everything we use on these products is plant based, sustainably sourced, and FDA approved for leave on products.
An important note, anything that has water in it will have a preservative in it as well. Water is the giver of all life on this planet - even creepy crawly bacteria you probably don't want on your skin. I struggled a LOT trying to decide what preservatives - if any - I wanted to use. I'll spare you the boring details, but ultimately we chose one that fit our standards in an effort to be able to bring you a superior quality product. If you strongly disagree with the use of preservatives in your skincare, please select an item without any water (ie: body butter). As always, you can reach out to me directly with any questions or concerns.
