Love Your Skin With Sigrid

June 1, 2012

It’s all over the place these days: “Read the labels on your skin care products!” “Down with Soduim Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate!” “Beware the dreaded parabens!” And you know what? “They” speak the truth. If you’re not careful, you can be spreading chemicals and carcinogens all over your body. Scary, isn’t it?

Well, fear not: Sigrid Geddes to the rescue! Frustrated by the inability of “conventional” creams to heal a wound on her hand, Sigrid reached out to a friend with a homemade comfrey healing salve. It worked almost instantly, and Sigrid’s fascination with natural skin care was born.

Nowadays, her product line has expanded from her original Comfrey Healing Salve to include a full line of Healing Salves, Body Butters, Facial Care, as well as Mama and Baby products, Perfumes, Lip Balms, and other special items.

Sigrid is passionate about using only natural ingredients: no fillers, preservatives, alcohol, perfumes, emulsifiers, or stabilizers. Her ingredients are as local as possible . . . sometimes even from her own garden.  Each ingredient has a purpose, as outlined on her website.
