Satya’s calendula balm is certified-organic, chemical-free and fragrance-free
Patrice Mousseau faced a challenge: her baby had developed eczema, and the only remedy offered by doctors was a steroid cream. Mousseau, an experienced journalist based in Metro Vancouver, employed her researching skills to seek a safe but effective alternative. Soon she discovered the flower Calendula officinalis, and she used it as the starting point to create Satya calendula balm. This certified-organic, chemical-free, fragrance-free balm relieves inflammation, soothes irritations and reduces itching, making it ideal for treating eczema, psoriasis, burns, rashes, chafing, insect bites and chapped lips. It comes in a 50-ml jar or a 7-ml travel-sized sliding tin (pictured) that can be refilled easily, so relief is always on hand. At Dandelion Kids and Lussobaby.
