NURTURE Nursing Balm Fragrance Free
A nourishing balm to help restore, heal and provide relief for breastfeeding mothers
Feeding your baby is a wonderful experience, but for some mums breastfeeding can be a challenge. The surprisingly strong sucking power of a newborn can cause tender, cracked or inflamed nipples. We want you to enjoy the bonding time with your baby, which inspired us to formulate the Nurture Nursing Balm with you both in mind. It is safe for your baby while helping to soothe painful nipples and give skin a chance to heel between feeds and ease discomfort.
Smooth application and quick absorption will avoid staining clothes while still providing long term moisture.
Although it has been formulated with breastfeeding mothers in mind, it is a multitasker that can be used to nurse any dry, chapped areas in need of a little TLC.

Capuacu Butter has excellent moisturising properties. We use it as a plant based lanolin substitute as it also reduces trans-epidermal water loss. It belongs to the same family as Cacao and is one of the Amazonian super fruits. The pulp is used in juices, ice creams and sweets while the fermented seeds are roasted which is used in a drink called Cupulate. The butter is obtained by cold pressing the seeds.
Kokum Butter is one of the hardest and most stable butters. This incredibly smooth butter has high compositions of beneficial materials to help regenerate tired and worn skin cells and further supports elasticity and general flexibility of the skin wall. Kokum Butter contains antioxidants and possesses natural skin healing and regeneration properties.
