Monkey Balm Review
What I say:
Do you or your child suffer from eczema or dry skin in general? Looking for a great, easy to use product with a great name? Monkey Balm is perfect for soothing itchy & painful irritations immediately, improving eczema & extreme dry skin within 3 days and soothing sunburn, minor scrapes & burns and rashes. I love the fact that Monkey Balm comes in a roll-up tube making it so easy to apply without all the mess. The ingredients are all natural and there is no harsh smell and it is long lasting. My youngest son Wade has had spots of eczema since he was very small. Mind you it is not really bad and does not cause him issues, but it's there, with dry patches on his face, arms and legs. We have been using Monkey Balm for over a month now and I am happy to report it's gone! We have gone from daily applications to just when I see it flaring. Wade does not mind applying Monkey Balm because he says it's not "icky" feeling-Yes he is 6. Monkey Balm has also been a blessing for this mom on her dry skin too-the cold winter winds really does a number on me. Monkey Balm contains Sea Buckthorn-Organic Sea Buckthorn oils (the FIRST ingredient on the label) are clinically proven to improve symptoms of eczema, extreme dryness, even burns and wounds.
Monkey Balm is definitely one of my new go to products!
What they say:
I am the mother of 3 wonderful boys, each with terribly dry-skin and eczema. They would scratch that itchy dry skin to the point it would bleed. Living in the Mountain West didn’t help either, with the super dry climate and extreme temperature swings.
After years of trying every over-the-counter and prescription cream under the sun to help my poor little Monkeys, I found out about Sea Buckthorn Oil. It’s used in many luxury Asian and European skin care products and natural skin treatments due to its unique power to heal damaged skin and protect it from the elements.
We (my husband and I) started experimenting with simple, effective methods to deliver this miraculous oil to the sensitive skin of our kids. After a few years of trial and error, we finally nailed it. Monkey Balm is the culmination of many different formulas and application methods. It’s the perfect combination of an effective, “no-stingy” formula, the main ingredient being sea buckthorn fruit and seed oils, and a simple, easy to use application “stick” that lasts longer than any cream or salve I have ever tried.
It is of utmost importance to me and my family to use only the most natural, safe, chemical-free products and food. That is why the ingredients in Monkey Balm are 100% natural. The sea buckthorn oils are 100% CERES certified organic and come from a sustainable, fair-trade source in the Himalayan mountains.
Though this product has been specially designed to be mild and safe for kids – as young as newborns – it’s great for adults as well. We use it for run-of-the-mill dry skin, cracked heels and knuckles, scrapes and burns, and even insect bites.
If Monkey Balm works for you and your kids as it has for my family, you will be utterly amazed at the results and your “Monkeys” will consider you a miracle-worker.
