Did you know that about 60% of what we put on our skin is absorbed by our body? Especially children are exposed because their skin is 5 times thinner than ours. Pregnant women, children with eczema, allergies or asthma are even more sensitive to toxic, harmful ingredients that most common cosmetics contain, like synthetic conservatives, artificial fragrances or petroleum derivatives.
Organic farming is significantly different from common farming. It is a much more labor intensive farming method that respects the environment. Organic farming does not use synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, fungicides, growth hormones or livestock food additives. The majority of these chemicals have been proven to cause cancer and pollute the soil, the water, the fish, the birds and the air we breathe.

Beeswax is the main ingredient of s a a r balms. Beeswax has been used through the centuries because of the wonderful healthy effects it brings to the skin.

Beeswax also brings the skin the necessary antioxidants for a healthy complexion. Beeswax has anti-inflammatory, germicidal, antibacterial and anti-allergic properties making it the chosen solution for many skin disorders.

Essential Oils are concentrated extracts from flowers and plants. They come from little glands that can be present in different parts of a plant. Warmth will let these essences evaporate so they form a protective shield around the plant to stop bacteria, fungi and other diseases from reaching the plant. Also they protect the plant against extreme temperature changes. These qualities can also be used with humans to strengthen our defensibility. In addition the essences have therapeutic qualities through the fragrances they spread. All our essential oils are selected on their special healing qualities and safety for babies and women during pregnancy and beyond.
