In central Texas, summer is coming on quickly! It's time for the kiddos to put a dab of barrier balm on their noses before heading out to ball practice. My favorite thing about the balm - aside from the fact that I don't have to worry about their bodies soaking up unknown, potentially carcinogenic (yet, approved by the FDA) chemicals - is the fact that it is COMPLETELY ODORLESS. In the days when we used chemical sunscreens, I could never get the chemical smell out of our clothes; but it's no longer a problem now that we've perfected the recipe for our multi-purpose barrier balm. How does it work? The non-nano sized particles of zinc oxide cannot absorb into the skin, so they remain on the surface as a protective physical barrier. Please let us know what uses you find for the barrier balm.
