This sunblock is awesome! My toddler hates putting on sunblock and always puts up a fight, but not with Soul Sunblock. Amazing and all natural!

About

Simple Ingredients, Locally Grown Medicinal Herbs

Many of the items we consume are marketed & driven by a company whose intentions are not truly for our well-being, but for the money in our wallets. It makes caring for our bodies and our planet in a healthy, sustainable way, very confusing and more difficult. This hard truth goes mostly unnoticed, as does the fact that we end up paying too much for it.

Soul Salve was conceived in Denver by a small crew of Denverites. We are a company designed and fueled by curiosity for plants with an intention to soothe and remedy the physical world.

We grow and locally source organic medicinal plants and herbs. From these plants, we bottle and jar our own extracts and infuse our herbs with the finest cacao butter from Ecuador, creamy coconut oil from the Philippines, and the most delicious beeswax from sunny Colorado.

Our herbal formulas are no secret; great civilizations from all corners of the world have documented the medicinal properties of the plants we grow and harvest. We believe we can strengthen our world and our community by sharing these products and their energies.
Company facts:

- We sell bath and body products made from organic materials.
- We grow and locally source medicinal herbs (approximately 90%) from seed, organically.
- We create extracts from those plants using organic grain alcohol and apple cider vinegar.
- We infuse fresh and dried herbs with coconut oil to capture medicinal properties.
- Most products are unscented with the exception of Soul Salve and Soul Cream (clove buds).
- No chemicals, parabens, or artificial preservatives.
- Products are naturally preserved by using small amounts of organic grain alcohol and apple cider vinegar.
- No water is used in our products to extend shelf-life (with the exception of Soul Cream).
- Beeswax provides our products with a hardiness so that they do not melt under the pressure of high ambient temperature.

Frequently asked questions

How old is the business.

Soul Salve was established in 2014.

Can any of your products be used as insect repellent?

While none of our products are designed with the intention to ward off insects, some of our products may still have the benefit of doing so. The main chemical found in cloves is Eugenol. Research shows that the chemical Eugenol is particularly unpleasant to many insects, and that clove essential oils and extracts may be used as a natural repellent. There is also research being done to support the use of Eugenol as a natural pesticide on agricultural crops.

What is the Difference Between Soul Butter and Soul Cream?

Soul Butter is a body butter and Soul Cream is a lotion. There are several differences between the two products in both preparation and ingredients. The most basic item to note is that lotions are typically made with water and body butters are not. Our Soul Cream is prepared with water, in this case, homemade hydrosol. Water is whipped into the oil, resulting in a quickly absorbed, less oily application.

Will your Sun Salve turn my skin white?

No! Sun Salve is made with a very dark beeswax. This helps deepen the color of the sun salve, which only requires a thin application on the skin. If too much is applied, Sun Salve can collect and appear white. This is due to the active ingredient, zinc oxide. We use a non-micronized zinc oxide so that it doesn't absorb into the blood stream. Zinc oxide is a fine, dust-like powder. If you do appear white, try using a little less product to cover the desired area.

Do you have a product to help eczema?

Yes, we have had great feedback from people with eczema who have used the lotion bar (Soul Butter), the salve (Soul Salve), and the cream (Soul Cream). Customer feedback shows that they help with eczema, rashes, and dry/irritated skin.

Does your Lip Salve protect my lips from the sun?

Yes. While it will not have the same degree of protection as our sunblock, it does have an SPF of 8 due to the coconut oil and aloe vera.

Will your product clog my pores (cause a breakout on the skin)?

No! We have had feedback that our Soul Cream actually helps clear up eczema and breakouts. So, in short, no. We use mostly fractionated coconut oil in all of our products. Fractionated coconut oil is much friendlier to the skin than other oils such as virgin coconut or olive oil. In addition to this, we make an in-house extract of homegrown aloe vera and apple cider vinegar - it does the skins wonders!

Where do you get your beeswax?

Various locations In Colorado made by Colorado bees and local nectar and pollen.

Why do you locally source your herbs?

Because the FDA (while there are active regulations in place) does not require their approval to sell herbs, extracts, oil infusions, essential oils, supplements, vitamins, or bath and body products in general. Some of which are imported from various countries outside the United States. Recents studies have found various products on the market to be inaccurate in their ingredients and potency. Because we grow our own herbs, we know exactly the kind of medicinal properties we will receive from our formulas.

What is your refund and return policy?

We can only take returns on products that are not intimate (bath and body products). This is for sanitary and health protection reasons. We can exchange birdhouses, soap dishes, and any other product we have that is not considered a bath and body product.

If you are not satisfied with your purchase, please let us know to receive a full refund!
