What Is a Salve?

Why Should I Use Salve?

A salve is a balm or an ointment used to soothe and soften dry skin, or used help with certain skin irritations or conditions, such as eczema, rashes, cuts, burns or scrapes. Depending on a certain salve’s ingredients, they can have a waxy, greasy, oily or silky texture. Salves should be applied topically and usually penetrate skin more deeply than a lotion or a cream.

Salves support skin health and protect skin from the elements in the wintertime when enjoying outdoor activities. And unlike lotions and creams, they don’t contain water, so they trap in moisture better.
