The August Yuzen box has a variety of products but one our favorites is the Calendula and Comfrey remedy balm from Tilvee Eco Ethical Skincare. This is a highly effective first aid salve is in a handy lip balm which we have now called the ‘magic stick’ because it can be used for so many things.
The main ingredients are Calendula and Comfrey extracts which are known to soothe and stimulate new healthy tissue growth. Calendula, has been used to heal skin conditions for hundreds of years. It is known to be antibacterial, antiviral as well as an anti-inflammatory, making it a popular first aid treatment. Studies have shown it reduces healing time and increases the quality of healing. Calendula is helpful for rashes, hives, eczema, shingles, bug bites, acne, burns, sensitive skin, wounds and more. Calendula has also been shown to increase collagen production, making it popular in facial cremes to lessen wrinkles and hydrate the skin.
Calendula is such a strong healer that is has the potential to seal in dirt, so make sure when using Calendula or a product with Calendula in it that the wound is thoroughly washed out.
Comfrey contains allantoin which stimulates healthy tissue formation, cleans up dead cells, and is soothing. Comfrey is soothing and healing to burns, wounds, rashes, and other skin irritations. For more on Tilvee ingredients check out their ingredients glossary.
If you are a parent with a young child this is a great tool to wipe away tears from those scrapes and cuts kids get. The founder and president of Tilvee Eco Ethical Skincare puts one in each of her children’s school backpacks. That way they have something at school for playground bag ups.
For best results It is recommended to apply as often as needed (at least twice daily for most conditions) until it has healed. Apply after bathing (on damp skin) and before sleeping for ultimate absorption. The Tilvee Calendula and Comfrey remedy balm has no parabens , no petroleum , no synthetics and no fragrances.
It is great when you are traveling, camping, swimming, biking or doing any other outdoor sport and small enough to keep in your pocket as a natural first aid remedy. For those days when you get to much sun it is a great balm for sunburn too. Like we said before, the ‘magic stick’ has so many uses! We wish we knew of this product earlier and we hope you find it as useful as we have. Yuzen members receive 15% discount of Tilvee purchases.
