Christine and Alicia also created a skin balm using all natural quality vegan ingredients with no added preservatives. This unscented moisturizing balm heals, soothes, and protects dry, damaged, or newly tattooed skin. In keeping with our desire to protect the environment we use glass jars with metal lids, no plastic.
