Nature

Medera's Nipple Balm is completely soothing and simple in nature. It doesn't re-invent the wheel. The nipple balm is made to care for sensitive nipples during a delicate time in life; breastfeeding. For that reason, the Nipple Balm is unscented and is completely fat-based, meaning there's zero preservatives. 

Properties

Lady's mantle, chickweed, and blessed thistle offer gentle skin-healing properties to sore, cracked nipples. Medera chose these herbs because they are completely safe to use on cracked skin and are safe to use between breast feeds.

The balm-base of Medera's Nipple Balm is vegan and food-grade which means it's safe enough to be used as a lip balm. This gives it the property of safety for both mum and bubs.

Extractions

Medera Apothecary has prepared three extractions for this formula; Lady's Mantle-infused grapeseed oil, Blessed Thistle-infused grapeseed oil and chickweed-infused grapeseed oil. These infusions are prepared by steeping the herbs in grapeseed oil at a constant, controlled temperature for a short period of time. Fat soluble constituents of the plants dissolve in the oil, forming an oil infusion or enflourage.
