This herbal healing salve is free of sulfates, parabens, petroleum, phthalates, PEGs, EDTA, silicon, phenoxyethanol, synthetic additives, harsh preservatives or fragrances, and contains a lot of ingredients: olive oil deeply moisturizes, nourishes and softens the skin, restoring its elasticity, locking in moisture and preventing dryness and dehydration, beeswax forms a protective barrier on the skin surface while still allowing it to breathe, comfrey, calendula, chickweed, plantain, echinacea, goldenseal, aloe vera leaf juice and myrrh are powerful anti-inflammatory and healing agents soothing, toning, firming, healing, regenerating, revitalizing and protecting dry, sensitive and damaged skin, calming itching, reducing redness and inflammation, supporting and strengthening the skin's defensive mechanisms, soothing rashes, fighting and preventing infection and inflammation, facilitating the healing of small wounds, sores, cuts, abrasions, burns, bruises, insect bites, stings, abscesses, boils, blisters, alleviating pain caused by sunburn and peeling skin, improving cellular circulation, stimulating cell renewal and regeneration, vitamin E is a natural preservative and powerful antioxidant. I've been using this healing salve on the dry and flaky patches on my face, hands and feet and it really works: almost all the flakiness, redness and inflammation is gone, my skin tone has noticeably evened out, my skin is softer, smoother and no longer rough. This product is also an effective all-natural insect repellent. Would definitely recommend it.
Throw away the 'zinc oxide' diaper rash products!

I'm not mentioning the main diaper rash product by name, but you know which one I mean... All of my children reacted horribly to it, and after a bit of research, it's obvious why- and shocking that it's still such a popular product for our sweet babies, which such awful, carcinogenic ingredients (and perfume, which you should never have around sensitive private areas). BUY THIS SALVE INSTEAD!!!! My baby has a very, very sensitive tushy area, prone to intense, bloody rashes. I tried everything. Everything! I found this and the ingredients were what I was looking for: soothing, but also good for yeast. You do NOT want to "coat" the diaper area in a paste of white (like that zinc oxide product I mentioned earlier does)- as any potential yeast rash will only be worsened by it. This salve does not do that, it literally soothes, "heals" and then protects the area from further rash forming. I have purchased this about 6 times now, I'm back for 2 more, and I've told all new moms I know to buy this. Also, it truly does help cuts, scraps, heat rash & chapped lips/cheeks. Earth Mama Angel Baby makes a similar product (which is amazing, but a lot more expensive). Buy this and you will not be disappointed!
Good for irritations

Comparing to Gaia's Comfrey Salve, this product has less comfrey, but it has calendula, aloe, goldenseal, myrrh and vitamin E, which makes it a very nicely soothing and healing for sensitive, irritated skin. I use it for face, lips and any scrapes, cuts or irritations. Considering that maine ingredients in Egyptian magic are olive oil, beeswax and vitamin E Kuumba Made Salve has them. It does not contain honey or propolis but for some people they could be irritating. Instead it has aloe, plantain, calendula and goldonseal, which are more healing. Plus the price is very reasonable. I wish it would come in a bigger jar!

Used it for winter dry skin that usually leads to eczema. Didn't get the eczema. Great product. Smell was very mild.
One of my favorites

I tried a lot of different types and brands of salve for all sorts of skin problems. This one and Gaia Comfrey Compounded salve are my favorites. Great for cuts, scratches, chapped lips. Feel free to visit my page (click on my name) for more reviews.
