Happy Dug is a natural dog ‘food’ company based in the Tweed Valley. We were delighted to make a natural Paw & Skin balm when they approached us with the idea.
We have formulated a Paw Balm that is specifically aimed to heal, soothe & protect the most sensitive skin & paws. All of our balms contain unrefined butters, cold processed oils & local beeswax. So yes, you can use this balm on you too, it’s super safe & kind to skin & the environment with its aluminium tins and biodegradable labels.
Here at Natural Little Bee, we have seen vast improvements on eczema prone skin, cracked and flaky skin including grazes and athletes who put their skin through harsh continuous conditions whether it be i.e. cold weather, friction from ultra-running, road cycling or even under wetsuits.
Directions of use; Rub onto desired area either using your fingertips or a lint free cloth. Please ensure your hands and/or cloth is clean including the skin or paws. For sensitive areas soften using your fingertips first. You can re-apply up to four/five times daily. If the area is really dry apply and leave on overnight.
Beeswax- is our key ingredient that sets us apart from other balms.. Locally sourced too! Rich in vitamin B,C,E,K and beta carotene, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties. Beeswax is a humectant which allows your skin to absorb and retain moisture to keeps it from drying out. It’s also packed with natural antioxidants as well as antimicrobial (this means that it inhibits the growth and reproduction of microorganisms) and antiseptic (Beeswax is an agent that destroys microbes, inhibits their growth preventing and even counteracts their pathogenic action). These super properties mean it acts as a protective barrier while allowing the skin to breathe, repair, soothe and nourish.
Mango Butter- Perfect for dog paws & skin with it’s nourishing, anti-inflammatory & healing properties. It is a soothing butter and studies have shown with regular use you will see a noticeable difference in your skin if it is cracked, itchy. It also reduces redness. Mango butter has a rich source of mangiterin, an anti-oxidant that can reduce the risk of cellular damage.
Raw shea locks in moisture. We believe it’s the perfect combination to nourish, soothe and protect your skin. Research also suggests it can heal minor cuts and scrapes. Contains Vitamin A&E
Chamomile – A flowery daisy like herb that has been used medicinally for thousands of years. The oil is steam distilled from both flowers and leaves. It is well known for it’s calming properties, anti-inflammatory, a sedative (contains apigenin, an anti-oxidant that binds certain receptors in your brain that promotes sleepiness). Chamomile is also a muscle & joint relaxant, so a perfect addition to the paw balm.
Sunflower – Is a fantastic oil for hydrating fur, paws & skin. It’s especially beneficial when the cold weather kicks in i.e. grit and salt on the roads which can really damage the skin.
