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, unrefined botanical butters and oils, variations in colour, texture and scent are normal.

It 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, glycerine, chamomile recutitia flower water, moringa oleifera (moringa) seed oil, citrullus lanatus (watermelon) seed oil, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), zinc oxide, allantoin, panthenol, tocopheryl (Vitamin E), triticum vulgare (gluten free wheat) germ oil, **sodium benzoate, **potassium sorbate, xanthan gum, vanilla planifola seed

**COSMOS and ECOCERT certified preservative

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.

Additionally, our Rescue Balm contains no added fragrance or essential oils while our Rescue Cream has been scented with lemongrass essential oil.

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.

Wild Crafted Repair Balm

This is like a miracle product for me. My cheeks have been having constant rosacea flare ups for over a year - until I tried this. It's unreal how much my skin has improved since using this - I even go without using any form of coverup when I'm out in public now!! I feel like the old me again - thank you, thank you, thank you!!

Lived up to its name

I bought this cream as an alternative to steroid cream and other pharmaceutical creams I had tried. I suffer with bad Ezcema on my hand and body and this cream really helped. I still suffer with the eczema but it is nowhere near as painful, dry or frequent. This is a cream I will be sure to keep in stock, as it seems to be one of the few out there that actually helps. I am very thankful to have found it and to the people who have created it.

Success

I decided to wait for a considerable length of time before leaving a review. It's important to note that it may take a long period time before seeing the benefits of rescue balm. My son has had severe eczema from around 2 years old. Getting progressively worse over the following two years. We were prescribed a constant supply of steroid creams and chemical based creams. Non of which ever improved his skin, longer than a few days. I decided to find alternative when I realised how much I was using steroids incorrectly, on a non stop basis. We have used rescue balm twice a day for nearly a year, and slowly each area of his eczema has improved. The most stubborn parts, groin and legs took nearly a year to improve. We now no longer use any steroids and can manage with the balm alone. I'm extremely happy and relieved. My son doesn't suffer the pain of infections, broken skin and A&E visits! Results may take time, but in my personal experience long term use of the balm has shown superb results! Thank you Susie 🙂

super moisturizing and helped my wind burned red facial skin repair.

At 55, I suddenly fund my skin got really dry and prone to sunburn( even with factor 50 on) and red and sore / peeling in cold windy weather. Especially on my cheekbones and below my eyes. Rescue balm did a great job of helping soothe and heal and then stop it getting so dry again . The redness is also much less.

Work for my granddaughter

This tonic didn’t do much for my psoriasis on the soles of my feet, probably because the skin is very much thickened. It did help my granddaughter,s itchy eczema.
