Ingredients

INCI:- butyrospermum parkii butter, mangifera indica seed butter, theobroma cacoa seed butter, cannabis sativa seed oil, citrullus lanatus seed oil, ricinus communis seed oil, moringa oleifera seed oil, centella asiatica extract, anthemis nobilis flower water, pynanthus angolensis butter, virola surinamensis seed butter, oryza sativa bran wax, niacinamide, allantoin, panthenol, tocopheryl acetate (Vitamin E), sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate, xanthan gum

How you use it

Suitable for all skin types 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 botanical butters and oils, it must be kept cool and away from sunlight. If allowed to melt, it will return to a dark brown colour and some separation may occur. Simply move to a cool place (can be kept in a refrigerator) and stir once cooled and set.

Melting does not harm the product or affect its efficacy.

How its made

All products are researched, developed and hand crafted in our studio in The Cotswolds, Engand using naturally derived ingredients from sustainable sources.  Shopping with us supports fair trade and woman owned coops worldwide.

All products are natural, vegan + cruelty free.

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.

THE BEST

I recently developer psoriasis and was really struggling until I saw the balm advertised on Instagram. I thought I’d give it a a go and even after the first time I applied it, my skin started to itch less and become less red. After a few days it had almost gone. An absolute miracle and will definitely be purchasing again!

Amazing Cream!

I have been using this for just over a month. It is very calming for my psoriasis. The cream hasn't completely healedthem, but it's amazing how much it's helped and how much they have healed so far! The rescue balm will forever be used in my household!

Rescue Cream

I have suffered from eczema all my life and since the perimenopause it has gone into overdrive. My skin is insanely dry and I am allergic to practically all skincare brands. Having read reviews on Thunderbird Skin - and in sheer desperation - I thought I'd give the Rescue Cream a try. Now, full disclosure, when I first got my order I took one look at the consistency and thought, 'that won't even touch my skin' I tried it and sure enough, my skin drank it in and was still dry, so I shelved it as I had done many other creams before. What I hadn't done at this point was properly read the instructions. A month later, with my skin worse than ever, I went back onto the website and saw that it clearly stated that to begin with, you may need to apply the cream several times a day to get results. At this point I had nothing to lose. So, I went for it, I applied it all over me, several times a day. After two days, I was already noticing a marked difference. Six months on and Rescue Cream is my absolute necessity, as expensive as it is - and rightly so - I buy 3 bottles at a time just to make sure I don't run out. I make use of every promo or special that I see to help keep the cost down. I no longer have to apply it several times a day. I apply it all over my body every morning and that's it, unless my skin is really playing up and then I'll use it before bed as well. It is kind enough to use on my face and when I get flare ups on my cheeks it is the only thing which calms it down. I still have eczema; at 49, I am resigned to knowing that I am stuck with it. But Rescue cream makes it manageable. It eases the itch and the dryness and soreness. And it has a gentle lovely smell, which I appreciate - my husband once commented that I smelled like a hospital corridor because of all the pharmaceuticals I had to use on my eczema and now I don't; small wins. I wouldn't be without this stuff. I can honestly say, as someone who has used every moisturising jollop on the NHS and dabbled in some so called organic concoctions online with disastrous results, that this is the best long-term relief that I have found. Thank you Thunderbird Skin, please don't change the recipe!! And for anyone thinking about buying Rescue Cream for the first time, read the instructions (unlike me) it'll get you to better skin sooner!!

Rescue cream

I have been using the repair and protect shampoo for over a year and It’s really helped clear my scalp and hairline. This made me think the rescue cream might help my eczema.
I have tried all sorts of creams over the years but nothing really helped. The rescue cream is the first time I’ve used a cream that doesn’t irritate. It is soothing and calms my hot skin. I will always have eczema but it’s good to have a product that helps to soothe the itch and dryness.

A miracle in a package

I’m that lazy person who never writes reviews but this cream has done so much and I’ve got to talk about it. The rescue balm is a game changer for my little one’s eczema. Bedtime has been cut down from hours of itching and crying to just 10 minutes or less with no tears or itching!!. I’ve tried many many many creams for my little one and this one cleared skin completely; no itching, no scars! I can testify that this works incredibly on black skin. A little trick is to add glycerine to the cream, it locks the hydration in for longer. Please note it’s important to use this for a period of about 2-3 months and I’m sure you’ll see results. It’s been his daily cream from Sept ‘22. I am so pleased I can get rid of all the steroid creams and use something natural. 100% recommend; no regrets.

Thi’s product didn’t work for me at all.
My when i used it on my face the first time i felt a burn on my cheeks.
The morning after when i woke up my face was all red and itchy.
I guess i may be allergic to something in it.
