After many years of experimentation and a lot of research, Farmaesthetics came up with what it thinks is the simplest, yet most effective healing, protective salve for combating the effects of the 4 unavoidable S’s: Sun, Smoke, Sugar, and Stress. This calendula based Hand to Heel Softening Salve comes with a file of testimonials, from chefs to dancers to America’s Cup sailors. There are few of nature’s ingredients as potent as the combination of calendula and beeswax. It protects and heals the effects of work, wear and tear, exposure to the elements, wounds, burns (even those produced by laser surgery), bruises, and eczema (including childhood and nervous onset). Calendula is a heady resinous marigold flower that contains potent active healing constituents. Nature’s most unique compound, beeswax, provides germ killing protective barriers that lock in moisture. Lavender is added for its antiseptic, anti-inflammatory agents, as well as a soothing scent, and a settling effect on the skin and nervous system. Peppermint and Beta Carotene add additional building blocks for tissue rejuvenation.
