WHAT YOU GET: (1) tube Grandma Minnie’s The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm
NET WEIGHT: 15g
INGREDIENTS: Petrolatum, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Glyceryl Laurate
On wounds and lesions: With clean, sanitized hands, apply a small amount on fingertips or a clean Q-tip and place on affected area three times each day (or as often as needed). For very painful lesions, do not rub Boo-Boo Balm in. Instead, dab generous amounts of Boo-Boo Balm gingerly over affected area without spreading. When lesion is less painful, spread Boo-Boo Balm over area. Your doctor may tell you to cover the area with a dressing after you have applied this ointment. Get medical assistance if no improvement is seen in 24 hours or immediately if signs of infection occur.
When performing First Aid: Rub Grandma Minnie’s Kid Gloves disinfectant over your hands. Kid Gloves can be used directly on wound but will sting! Lessen the Ouch factor by cleaning lesion with Grandma Minnie’s Oil’s Well Nurturing Do-It-Oil, following it with The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm. Bandage if needed. Get medical help if there is no improvement within 24 hours or immediately if signs of infection appear.
What do we love about homegrown label VMV? They’re the only beauty brand with a rating system that grades a product’s safety based on the number of allergens it does NOT contain. In fact, VMV’s skincare and makeup are free of most (if not ALL) 76 allergens as listed by the North American Contact Dermatitis Group + European Surveillance System on Contact Allergies. From its sunscreens to its concealers, VMV’s range is free of fragrance, dye, phthalate, paraben, preservatives, coca-surfactant, SLES, and SLS. All products are formulated to be non-comedogenic, non-drying, pH-adjusted, and suitable for all skin types. What’s NOT to love?
I loved the tube sized version on this so much that it made me buy this one in the pot. I used to use this for my chapped lips but now I actually use this on my baby. I've used it on myself and the all-natural ingredients claim assured me of it's safety. This is a bit expensive I will not lie but it is such a great investment. It will last you longer than you think.7 months ago
You know how petroleum jelly is filled with "bad for you" ingredients, but it just soothes and does all these amazing things? Well, this boo boo balm is like that, except better. It has amazing ingredients and it works really well on scratches, cuts, and TATTOOS! Right after I got mine, I applied this on the area twice a day for a week and it healed quickly.7 months ago
This was recommended to me by a friend who is an avid fan of VMV products. I use this as a lipbalm. I started using when I found out that I was allergic to beeswax which the main component of almost all lip balms. This works wonders for me. It moisturizes my lips almost immediately. I love that it contains hypo-allergenic ingredients. My only regret is not using this sooner!about 1 year ago
Bug bites, scrapes, chapped lips, dry hands and even for baby's tushy rash. Grandma Minnie has your back. As silly and simple as it seems, this product works wonders for almost every skin problem you'll ever encounter. A small tub can last you a long time even with frequent use.about 2 years ago
This is a must in my Go Bag. Found it effective for insect bites, skin irritations and for minor burns. I love cooking and I frequently get burnt by cooking oil while frying so I always have this handy. I once got burnt while baking and even that nasty burn didn't leave a scar because I immediately applied Grandma Minnie’s The Big, Brave Boo-Boo Balm. It's quite pricey but this little jar goes a long way. Will definitely repurchase. VMV did it again! World class productover 2 years ago
Please don't let the exterior and cute packaging fool you. This is one of the most potent multitasking products on the market, to date. This can work for dry skin, chapped lips, dry elbows, insect bites, redness, wounds (open or healing), itchiness...WHAT HAVE YOU. Gentle enough for babies, safe for pregnant women, and strong enough to handle the big infections on your skin. Honestly, buy this as your first product for VMV and get hooked because this is the one product that will show you just how strong coconut derived monolaurin truly is.over 2 years ago
Bonus: they help with breakouts, too!
Same benefits, half the price.
