How does Dr. Boldt's Barrier Balm work?
A Unique Healing Approach
We call it "Barrier Balm" because our unique formulation creates a protective barrier that to keeps your skin's own moisture (great for the natural healing process), while keeping outside moisture out. This prevention of moisture loss is vital to the healing process and creates an ideal healing environment for skin affected by rash or minor cuts. We've used minimal ingredients which keep the product use safe for the most sensitive skin (Barrier Balm started as Hiney Healer for babies, after all), while still being strong enough for use by the most demanding athletes.
