Rad Salve

Offering comfort to radiation patients since 2017.  The name has changed and the formula has been improved, but this is the product that started it all!  Rad Salve was born out of my belief that oncology patients deserve skincare products made with top-quality ingredients to help soothe the discomfort that radiation treatments may cause.  It was (and is) my way of helping to soften the cancer journey.

Rad Salve is very concentrated, and takes very little to comfort the side effects of radiation.    The super star ingredients include Calendula, Pomegranate, Hemp, Tamanu, Olive Squalane and Copaiba to help calm, soothe and soften.

SUGGESTED USE: Starting the first day of treatment (or as soon as possible), gently apply a small amount of Rad Salve to the affected area 2-3 times per day following your treatment.   A little goes a long way!   Continue use for 3-4 weeks after final treatment.   For added comfort the salve can be kept in the refrigerator.

Please do not apply within four hours prior to your treatment.  In addition, please do not apply over an open wound without your physician’s consent.

FULL INGREDIENTS:  Olive Oil, Jojoba Oil, Baobab Oil, Glyceryl Dibehenate, Kokum Butter, Olive Squalane, Pomegranate Extract, Hemp Seed Oil, Amaranth Extract, Black Cumin Extract, Tamanu Oil, Bisabolol, Rice Bran Wax, Cetyl Alcohol, Dandelion Extract, Calendula Extract, Tocopherol (and) Sunflower Oil, Manuka Essential Oil, Frankincense Essential Oil, Lavender Essential Oil, Copaiba Essential Oil, Roman Chamomile Essential Oil.

Hand & Body Buttercream

Soften up, Buttercup! with this luscious, quick-absorbing, non-greasy “body-buttery-ish” cream!   A little goes a long way and will feel oh-so-good on your dry skin.  Very helpful for those undergoing chemotherapy treatments, living in cooler climates, or dealing with dry skin on a daily basis.  Also great for the hands of men who need lotion, but don’t like “lotion that feels like lotion.”

Super stars in the Buttercream include Avocado Oil, Jojoba Oil, Olive Squalane, and Extracts of Dandelion and Oat to moisturize, hydrate, soothe and calm your skin.

Available in No Scent Added*, as well as in a NEW LIMITED SEASONAL SCENT!  “Peachy Keen” smells like good ol’ Southern peach sweet tea with a twist of tangerine.   Smells like a refreshing glass of sweet tea in the midst of an orchard.

*No Scent Added means the absence of essential oils and/or natural plant fragrance oils.  There is, however, a slight aroma from the natural plant-derived ingredients.

  • 2 Ounce Jar — $24 + shipping

Use the Clean Rinse Sugar Scrub weekly before applying the ButterCream.    Your skin will thank you!

Not suitable for facial use.

TIP:   Customize your No Added Scent buttercream by adding a few drops of a pure essential oil.  For example, adding a bit of Lavender would make a lovely cream to use at bedtime.

Clean Rinse Sugar Scrub -- coming mid June!

Love a sugar scrub, but not the oily mess it leaves behind?   Then you’ve GOT to try this Clean Rinse Sugar Scrub!

Here’s another reason to love it — it lathers!  The sugar provides a gentle exfoliation for smoother skin, and its low lather helps it rinse off easily without leaving an oily residue on your shower floor.

  • 4 Ounce Jar — $

SUGGESTED USE:   Take a small amount in your hand and rub briskly (but gently) onto wet skin.   Work into a low lather.  Rinse well when sugar starts to dissipate.

Follow with the ButterCream for deliciously soft skin for hours.
