This multitasking ointment changes state from solid to liquid with body heat, providing all of the concentrated benefits of pure botanical oils and extracts with the convenience and portability of a balm. Whether skin is chapped, irritated, especially dry or simply in need of extra TLC, the six potent Canadian extracts in our signature Céla Complex combine with six ultra-hydrating plant butters and six moisturising oils to soothe, treat, clarify and protect. Essential Balm performs miracles from head to toe – hair included – leaving behind the delicate, anxiety-reducing scent of lavender and bergamot.
The seeds of the ucuuba tree, native to the Amazonian lowlands and swamplands, are cold pressed for their remarkable butter. Primarily composed of three essential fatty acids, myristic, lauric and palmitic acid, and rich in anti-aging vitamins A and C, ucuuba butter absorbs quickly and moisturises deeply without a greasy after feel.
The nutritious inner flesh of the coconut palm fruit is cold pressed to obtain a creamy, richly emollient oil with a true-to-nature, comfortingly nutty aroma owing to the preservation of its antioxidant polyphenols during extraction. In addition to providing intense moisturisation to hair and body, the high fatty acid content gives coconut oil remarkable antifungal and antibacterial properties.
This oil’s uplifting effect is owed both to its deliciously sweet, subtly floral aroma of sun-ripened bergamot oranges and to its concentration of flavonoids, which do double-duty as a cleansing agent with antibacterial properties.
All Céla skincare products are free of parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.
Warm a dollop of the oil-in-balm between palms until it melts, then massage into dry areas in need of serious hydration. Wait until Essential Balm is fully absorbed to get dressed. Use as often as desired.
From taming fly-aways, sealing split ends, grooming unruly brows and softening cuticles to massaging tired muscles and soothing skin irritations, there’s no end to the uses you’ll find for this miraculous salve.
