How you use it

Suitable for all skin types, ages and areas. Use little and often on clean skin-we find it goes three times as far as your average store bought cream.

It is very important that you use the Balm regularly in order to achieve desired results. Initially, you may need to apply multiple times a day. As your skin repairs itself, your need to apply will naturally lessen.

As this Balm is nearly entirely comprised of natural, unrefined botanical butters and oils, variations in colour, texture and scent are a normal feature of the unrefined and unbleached oils we use.

Your Balm must be kept cool and away from sunlight and heat sources or it will melt. If allowed to melt, some separation may occur and this can lead to a grainy texture. This in no way harms the product or its efficacy. It can be used as is or you can gently heat it in a water bath until the oils are fully melted, stir and move to a refrigerator to reset.

Who needs this

Anyone needing the maximum amount of moisture to calm, soothe and restore the skin's barrier function.

Ingredients

INCI:- butyrospermum parkii (shea) butter, mangifera indica (mango) seed butter, theobroma cacoa (cocoa) seed butter, persea grattisima (avocado) seed oil, cannabis sativa (hemp) seed oil, centella asiatica (gotu kola) leaf extract, caprylic/capric triglyceride, moringa oleifera (moringa) seed oil, citrullus lanatus (watermelon) seed oil, helianthus annuus (sunflower) hybrid oil, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), zinc oxide, allantoin, panthenol, alpha bisabolol, tocopheryl (Vitamin E), triticum vulgare (gluten free wheat) germ oil, **sodium benzoate, **potassium sorbate, xanthan gum, vanilla planifola seed

What is the difference between Rescue Balm and Rescue Cream?

Our Rescue Balm is comprised almost entirely of botanical oils and butters whereas our Rescue Cream is a traditional water based moisturiser. While they share similar ingredients and the same level of actives, they are two very different products with the Balm offering a significantly higher level of hydration and protection.

For moderate to severe cases, we always recommend starting with the Balm with the option to transition to the Cream to maintain your result. Less severe cases can go straight to the Cream if its their preferred texture.

As always, we suggest those with sensitive skin start with a trial size and perform a patch test before commiting to a full size purchase, even when transitioning from the Balm to the Cream

We know what its like to struggle with severe skin conditions.

Thunderbird Skin was founded by a mother and daughter team and born of a need to resolve our own debilitating 18 year battle with eczema that included hospital visits and sepsis battles.

This led to the creation of our Rescue Balm and has grown to a 2500 square foot studio and an award winning line of products that are sold in over 24 countries.

We scour the globe for the highest quality botanical ingredients from sustainable sources supporting female led grower's cooperatives worldwide.

Inspired by nature's ability to heal, we ensure every ingredient within our formulations has a specific purpose and is backed by science. The result? Highly active, concentrated and efficient products that can actually deliver the results promised.

Why do our products succeed in calming chronic skin conditions when so many others fail?

Simply put, we use better ingredients.

Our formulations are a base of renewal promoting botanicals to which we add clinically proven naturally derived active ingredients.

In the simplest terms, we don’t guesstimate how much vitamin was in a plant when the oils were extracted. Because we used actives, we know what’s there ensuring your skin gets what it really needs.

Really good product

Have used so many prescription moisturiser lotions and steroid based ointments for my Dermatitis/Eczema for many years, but nothing worked, in fact they seemed to make it worse. Realising these prescription lotions and ointments were so full of chemicals, I then decided on a different approach and discovered "Thunderbird Skin". After using it for two months, I just can't believe the difference it has made to my skin and how much better my skin is. It will always be "Thunderbird Skin" from now on for me. Amazingly great product.

Great while having chemotherapy 👍

I think this is the only thing I’ve used that doesn’t burn my skin. Chemotherapy has made my skin incredibly dry and uncomfortable but this has felt soothing and nourishing. Thank you 😊

Magical

I have had perioral dermatitis for years and so try and use natural products. My skin is sensitive and easily becomes inflamed. It was my first time using Thunderbird but a friend recommended it to me and I love it. The balm is so nourishing and calming on my skin. It has helped to settle the raised patches of skin and I feel like it is helping to reduce the redness. I also use it on my daughters eczema and it has had fantastic results.

Disappointed

The repair balm is not helping or making a difference in the redness of my face. I understand this won't work for all people. So unfortunate. Even one of my friends tried it and she was immediately put off by the smell (wet dog).
