with the help of squalane, medium-chain triglycerides and occlusive powerhouse petrolatum, b-balm creates a thin barrier that helps to moisturize and lock in hydration. b-balm's hybrid gel-balm texture is velvety-smooth and highly spreadable, melting into the skin to provide immediate moisturizing, softening and soothing benefits. although waterless and highly emollient, b-balm feels featherlight on the skin.
|" I created b-balm out of a need for something incredibly basic yet incredibly moisturizing. my sister and I both use prescription acne creams. occasionally we get extreme dryness around our eyes and on our necks. I couldn't find anything on the market with an ingredient composition like b-balm. b-balm is ultra-moisturizing - there's no water in the formulation. it is extremely gentle and incredibly nourishing and suitable for acne prone skin (don't let petrolatum fool you). I like to use b-balm around my eyes at night and on particularly dry days I take a very small amount, warm it between my palms and pat it all over my face. you can think of it as a solid facial oil.

use b-balm as the last step in your skincare routine. for light application warm a small amount of product between your palms and press into the dry areas of your face. to intensely moisturize dry areas - apply a small amount directly. b-balm can be used in place of a moisturizer or on top of a moisturizer.

why was the formula changed/how does it compare?
to make a long story short... after countless attempts to correct the leaking issues with b-balm and countless conversations with other cosmetic chemists and raw material suppliers... it was unfortunately determined that there was a fundamental issue with b-balm's original formula which couldn't be fixed without severely impacting the textural experience... it comes down to the chemistry of what ingredients were being used and their incompatibilities.
the new formula utilizes an improved oil gelling system with enhanced stability. ingredients that were contributing to incompatibilities were also removed.
the old formula was more of a gelled-oil with a dewy or some may say... greasy finish. the new formula feels lighter and softer on the skin and absorbs more easily to leave a natural finish on the skin.
