7 reviews
  • Soothe, nourish & protect sensitive skin with our unscented Gentle Bee Balm, containing only edible ingredients that are safe for your baby.

    This balm is a powerhouse of beneficial ingredients! Apply this gentle, unscented balm on babies or adults to soothe and moisturise dry skin, for baby massage, as a nappy barrier or lip balm. Also suitable for pre- and post-breastfeeding, our Gentle Bee Balm nurtures and protects dry, cracked nipples.  Containing antioxidant and gamma-linolenic, acid-rich Evening Primrose oil to promote hydration and comfort. Combining Australian Olive and Avocado oils with our Australian beeswax provides you with the ultimate nourishment. Suitable from 0+months.


    Our Gentle Bee Balm contains these nourishing, natural ingredients:

    Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Cera Alba (Beeswax), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Theobroma Cocoa (Cocoa) Seed Oil, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula), Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow Root), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Sorbitan Olivate (derived from Olives).

  • Coconut (Cocos nucifera) Oil – Fiji – Cold Pressed
    Coconut oil is a wonderful moisturiser, used as a base in our balms. Easily absorbed because of its smaller fatty acids, coconut oil has been found to improve hydration and protect the skin barrier. It is also an antioxidant. Research has shown that it can be more effective than mineral oil in improving dry skin (Evangelista et al. 2014, PMID 24320105).

    Grapeseed (Vitus vinifera) – Italy – Cold Pressed
    Grapeseed oil is rich in fatty acids and antioxidants such as vitamins and phenolic compounds. One antioxidant is the famous resveratrol, known for its potential to prevent the signs of ageing. Besides boosting hydration, grapeseed oil may also protect our skin (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).

    Beeswax (Cera alba) – Australia – Unrefined
    Beeswax is a natural emollient and humectant, providing moisture to the skin and acting as a protective barrier against the elements. Our beeswax comes from our own hives; we love our bees, so they are not harmed during harvesting. Beeswax is the perfect ingredient to base our balms on, as it provides amazing protection to your skin.

    Extra Virgin Olive (Olea europaea) Oil – Grampians, Australia
    Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil is sourced from our friends, Olive Grove, in the Grampians – just down the road from us. Olive oil is rich in oleic acid, and a range of antioxidants more potent than vitamin E.

    Avocado Oil (Persea gratissima) Oil – Australia – Unrefined
    Avocado seed oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids, such as oleic acid (omega-9) and linoleic acid (omega-6), plus plant precursors to vitamin A, and vitamins B1, D and E. This nourishing oil helps to protect the skin and reduce the appearance of redness, making it very popular in anti-ageing products. While it is no replacement for sunscreen, this may include ageing caused by sun damage (Rosenblat et al. 2011, PMID 20978772).

    Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii) – Ghana – Unrefined
    Shea butter is taken from the nuts of shea trees, native to West Africa. It contains high levels of fatty acids, including oleic and linoleic acids, as well as vitamin E and other antioxidants. These contribute to its protective properties, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, reduce the appearance of redness and improve the look of skin by enhancing hydration (Lin et al. 2018, PMID 29280987).

    Evening Primrose (Oenothera biennis) Oil – China – Cold Pressed
    Evening primrose oil is rich in gamma-linoleic acid (GLA). Its abilities to reduce the appearance of redness and smooth rough skin means it is a popular ingredient in preparations for these issues (Horrobin, 2000, PMID 10617999).

    Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao) – Ghana - Unrefined
    Cocoa butter is the pressed fat from cacao beans, the seeds of the cocoa tree, which is left over from cocoa powder production. Rich in antioxidants and healthy fats, it is a nourishing moisturiser that can help in a wide range of skin complaints. Cocoa butter’s benefits may include reducing the appearance of redness and fighting the signs of premature skin ageing (Scapagnini et al. 2014, PMID 25116848).

    Calendula (Calendula officinalis) – Australia
    Calendula is an antiseptic ingredient that contains high levels of antioxidants, such as flavonoids and triterpenoids. It is well-known for its nurturing effect on dry skin conditions (WHO, 2004).

    Marshmallow Root (Althaea officinalis)
    Marshmallow root is a wonderfully soothing agent, providing hydrating relief to dry skin, including skin that has been exposed to the sun, thanks to its high mucilage content. (Dawid-Pac, 2013, PMID 24278070).

    Vitamin E (Tocopherol) – Australia
    Vitamin E is a soothing, protective antioxidant that can help fight the signs of premature ageing, such as those caused by excessive sun exposure. It is also added to skincare products to keep them fresh for longer (Schagen et al. 2012, PMID 23467449).

    Sorbitan Olivate (derived from olives) – Australia
    Sorbitan olivate is a natural emulsifier derived from olives. Emulsifiers keep ingredients blended; otherwise, oil- and water-based ingredients will separate, and products may become less effective. It also brings its own moisturising properties to preparations (source: Britannica).

    So soothing

    Breastfeeding can be a challenging journey in itself, let alone adding dry, cracked or bleeding nipples to the mix! This product was a lifesaver, providing instant relief! It has also helped reduce the appearance of stretch marks as an added bonus!

    Love, love, love this!!!

    Love, love, love this balm!!! Soooo glad I found this balm. With my first two children I searched unsuccessfully for a balm that was both natural and effective in relieving and preventing dry, cracked and sore nipples. I am so grateful this product is now on the market come child number three. I apply the balm after every feed. It has been so effective I have avoided any ****** discomfort or adverse conditions this time round entirely. I also used the balm on my newborn daughter blistering lips from early feeding suction and it cleared them up ever so gently within 48hrs!!! Thank you Beetanicals - you have done wonders!!!

    Wonderful

    This product was just what i needed for my pre pregnancy and post pregnancy breastfeeding journey, i used it in the early stages after every feed to relieve cracked nipples and pain and continued using it as a nourishing balm afterwards. I loved that the ingredients are all safe for baby too.

    In love with this

    No only do I love the concept of supporting a small family business, this product has exceeded my expectations. I actually use it as a lip balm now too, and the smell and taste of it is very calming to me now. It feels amazing and does what it’s supposed to. Very pleased and impressed.
