About balmkind

A life-long battle with chapped, parched and troubled lips was the inspiration behind balmkind.  We aren’t alone in that battle – according to the World Health Organisation*, two-thirds of the world’s population under 50 has the virus that causes cold sores, resulting in misery for lips.

Add to this that we are careful about what we put on our skin and the challenge was to create a balm which keeps lips beautifully conditioned whilst containing naturally occurring ingredients which could help to prevent the occurrence of cold sores.

Two years in the making, the result is a balm which is light in texture, yet rich in skin-kind ingredients to nourish, soothe and protect the lips and which includes three ingredients with naturally occurring anti-viral properties: Alpine Rose, Lysine and Licorice Root.

balmkind are based in Hampshire and are proud to manufacture in the UK.  Our products are manufactured to exacting standards and comply fully with the EU Cosmetics Regulation ((EC) No. 1223/2009).
