The ingredients are a bit different from my previous Healing Cream for Joints/Muscles. The base (inactive ingredients) is Helios’ own and I added Bellis perennis to the active ingredients because of it’s ability to help over strained joints and spines to heal.
The preservatives used are non toxic and used in minute quantities comprising approximately 0.1% of the total. They are used in many natural and organic topical products and and have been extensively researched and deemed safer than the potential problems caused by microbial contamination etc. Benzyl Alcohol is found naturally in many foods that we consume and is derived from fruit. Citric acid is a type of alpha-hydroxy acid that is extracted from citrus fruits such as lemons, limes, oranges, and grapefruits. Potassium Sorbate is the potassium salt of sorbic acid, and Sodium Benzoate is the sodium salt of benzoic acid and a naturally occurring substance found in many fruits such as cranberries, raspberries and cherries. Sodium benzoate is permitted as a preservative by all organic certification bodies worldwide.
Hot Tip! Wash your hands before dipping into the cream to make sure your fingers are always lovely and clean!
