BOTANICO VIDA BALM

WHY KATIE LOVES THIS OMEGA BALM

Lock in moisture, feed and soothe extremely dry, irritated skin with this natural wonder ointment!

If you suffer with dry skin patches, scars, psoriasis or other red, irritated, drying skin conditions such as flaky skin, dry lips, rough hands or cracked heels – then prepare to be wowed by this super-nutrient rich balm.

PLUS, it works wonders for nappy rash and infant skin conditions too!

Botanico Vida’s Omega Balm offers an effective, natural and 100% fragrance free alternative to the many paraffin-based balms.

Designed to sit on the skin longer and provide a protective and nourishing treatment to lock-in moisture, contributing to 24-hour hydration that helps alleviate flaky, cracked or rough skin, as well as calm any red and irritated areas.

Omega Balm supports your skin with a nurturing layer that helps skin recover and heal itself as it works hard to improve your skin’s barrier function to lock in its natural moisture for longer.

It’s a specialist skincare made JUST for you…and your loved ones!

All thanks to the HERO ingredient Bioactive Sacha Inchi…

…one of earth’s most nutrient-rich seeds!

Sacha Inchi is the earth’s richest plant source of Omega 3, 6 and 9 and high in protein, vitamins and anti-oxidants.

It’s also the stand-out HERO ingredient in Botanico Vida’s Omega Balm which works naturally, sustainably AND ethically to soothe daily skincare worries.

Plus, a new natural tech active called Castorlatum TM cleverly ‘wraps’ skin, locking in moisture and protecting it from the environment.

Together with Argan, Avocado and Rosehip Oil, Coconut Oil, Vitamin E and Calendula (sourced from organic, fairly-traded plants and projects encouraging reforestation), Omega Balm puts moisture, hydration, Omega’s Essential Fatty Acids and Vitamins directly back into the skin in order to build and renew it.

But why does our skin need Omega’s?

Because although they make up 30% of our skin’s lipids, we cannot produce them ourselves!

Step in Omega Balm; infusing these necessary and natural building blocks into our skin’s cellular structure to support the healing, growing and ageing process.

Being completely chemical-free and mineral oil-free, Omega Balm is also so gentle it can be used on baby skin too!

Let this ALL-purpose soothing balm help keep your skin troubles at bay!

In fact, independent studies have concluded the following benefits from using Omega Balm:

  • 45% increase in skin elasticity
  • 19% increase in skin hydration
  • 96% of users felt their skin was smoother and softer
  • 92% of users would recommend to a friend

Give your skin a break and try it for yourself - it may just provide the most powerful, natural goodness your skin is craving…

A little about the brand…

Founder, Kristy Cimesa, came across Sacha Inchi seed oil in 2009 to treat her son’s eczema. Impressed with the improvement it had, it became a staple for use on everything from dry skin, to sunburn and wrinkles. Kristy partnered with friend Hannah Becker to develop the most Omega rich multi-purpose body oil on the market! The Sacha Inchi oil was infused with many other organic, omega rich oils such as Argan, Rosehip and Avocado to create a unique blend with amazing skin penetration and a beautiful scent. This blend became ‘Omega Oil’ the hero product of their new company Botánico Vida (or ‘plant life’), and soon to follow came the nurturing Omega Balm, with all the benefits of Omega Oil but qualities aimed specifically at extremely dry, irritated skin. Botanico Vida source ingredients from organic, fair traded plants and through projects encouraging reforestation.

As with ALL the makeup brands we stock here at Beauty and the Boutique – this product is NOT tested on animals.

KATIE'S TOP TIPS

For best results simply apply as needed to areas of severe dryness or irritation or use for any of the suggested options below:

1. Soothing extremely dry, itchy or dehydrated skin

For extremely dry skin patches layer with the Omega Balm directly to the area.

2. Cracked Heels

For stubborn cracked heels exfoliate feet once a week and apply the Omega Balm nightly before bed and wear a pair of natural silk or cotton socks. During a recent consumer trial 88% of users saw an improvement after one week and 95% said they would recommend Omega Balm to their friends. Continued treatment showed greater results.

3. Cuticles

Rub Omega Balm daily into cuticles to enhance your manicure and massage into rough patches on hands.

4. Cracked Lips

Rub Omega Balm into cracked lips regularly as required to soothe, heal and condition.

5. Relief for sensitive skin

Omega Balm is very effective for use on dry skin patches on the eyelids – just rub a tiny amount in several times a day. Also great for taming unruly eyebrows or using to ease the pain and reduce redness when plucking.

6. Nappy Rash

Omega Balm is hypo-allergenically tested and a completely natural and safe choice for your child’s skin. It can be used to soothe nappy rash by gently rubbing in after every nappy change..

PLEASE NOTE: For external use only – DO NOT use on broken skin.
