At Creations by Annie B, it's no secret that we love few things more than our corgis, Bob & Lola so with their tender paws in mind, we created this balm. Along the way, we discovered that this balm felt wonderful on our "paws", too.
Our all natural recipe is loaded with ingredients to protect paws and skin from the ravages of winter and will benefit with soothing and moisturizing ingredients. Oh, and don't worry - it won't leave behind greasy stains ~ a little goes a long way and absorbs quickly into the skin. The ingredients are toxin free so if your pup happens to lick his paws, there are no worries.
Directions ~ apply to paws as needed. Recommended for use before a walk to add a barrier of protection as well as a conditioner.
Each 2 ounce tin contains: Organic Beeswax, Organic Coconut Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Unrefined Shea Butter and Pure Lavender Essential Oil

Why we selected these ingredients~
*Organic Beeswax ~ improves the condition of skin and is known for its healing properties. Beeswax locks in moisture, and protects skin from damaging environmental factors. It softens skin, creates a long-lasting protective coating against the elements, is a naturally nourishing moisturizer as well as being anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-allergenic and a germicidal antioxidant.
* Organic Coconut Oil ~ The most exciting benefit that coconut imparts on the skin is moisture. Because of its unique combination of fatty acids (lauric, capric, caprylic, myristic and palmitic), it has a way of penetrating skin that few other oils have.
* Sweet Almond Oil ~ Almond oil had been used extensively for its health benefits and as a beauty aid. It is rich in Vitamin E, monounsaturated fatty acids, proteins, potassium and zinc, besides a number of other minerals and vitamins, which explains why it is so good for our heart, skin and hair.
*Unrefined Shea Butter ~ contains natural UV protection, and has been used for centuries by the natives of the Ivory Coast and Senegal to heal and protect skin due to its anti-inflammatory capabilities. It has been shown
to increase the healing of wounds and improve scars. It is used to heal eczema, burns, rashes,
severely dry skin, and to lessen the irritation of psoriasis. Shea butter penetrates deep into the skin, gives back its elasticity, moisturizes and nourishes skin and is excellent for dry, damaged and maturing skin.
*Lavender Essential Oil~has many wonderful healing properties. At its most basic, it acts as an analgesic, can help healing processes, and can also help to reduce inflammation. Lavender offers an all natural solution to some of the potential germs and bacteria that can form around cuts and minor abrasions that result from dry paws.
