THE MULTIPURPOSE NATURAL BALM
MINIMAL, NATURAL INGREDIENTS
XO Balm is made from just four, 100% natural ingredients which are a blend of 'skin identical' oils and protective waxes to help strengthen the skin's natural barrier. No sacrifice has been made for cost or an 'improved' smell or texture, ensuring it is as effective as possible, and you know exactly what you are putting on your skin. As well as being free-from preservatives, petroleum, palm oil and fragrance, XO Balm is always against animal testing.
XO Balm is made only from beeswax, coconut oil, olive oil and chia seed oil; a blend of nature’s most effective ingredients in promoting skin health, fighting dryness and sensitivity. XO Balm donates to bee friendly charities in the UK, helping bee populations live and thrive with sustainable beekeeping.

The matte, semi-solid texture of XO Balm, along with the multipurpose nature, make it an ideal travel product. The XO Balm tin is cute and compact, with a mirror inside the lid, great for on-the-go applications. XO Balm is suitable for use all over the body, ideal for maximising space in luggage or a toiletries bag.
The XO Balm tins are metal, not plastic, with wooden scoops which are biodegradable and compostable. No secondary box or wrapping is used to avoid unnecessary waste. The tins are designed to be reused when empty to store small items, reducing landfill waste. XO Balm is sized to fit through a post box, meaning lower carbon footprint from fewer delivery attempts.
THE STORY OF XO BALM
XO Balm was created by Charlotte Elizabeth, a Londoner with super sensitive, eczema-prone skin and a passion for design and sustainability. XO Balm is skin health for minimalists; one multipurpose product with many uses, made from few ingredients to avoid stressing sensitive skin, and creating no waste with sustainable design.
“My goal with XO Balm is to promote minimalism within product formulations, and in skincare routines in general. A minimal ingredient formula is suitable for even stressed, sensitive skin types like mine, and the beauty of a multipurpose balm is it can be different things for different people; streamlining product collections. I use it for my hands, nails, lips, body, as an eye cream and even to style my hair.
I wanted XO Balm to be the perfect all-in-one product; effective ingredients, easy to carry around, kind to skin and suitable for everyone. Sustainable living is an important issue for me personally; the minimal and all-inclusive approach of XO Balm is part of my goal to reduce waste."
