SR 109 Cuticle Salve
SR 109 is based on a simple principle:
Your skin has unique needs that can change daily, and YOU are the best person to recognize and respond to those needs.
After years of not being able to find skin care products that were safe for my husband and daughter’s severe allergies AND helped with chronic hangnails caused by my autoimmune disorder, I desperately bought a cosmetic formulation textbook and started learning the science of making skin care products.
This soothing and protective salve is the product of seven years of research and testing. The lightweight formula is packed with rich, moisturizing agents -- like mango butter, Abyssinian oil, and rosehip seed oil -- that glide on and rapidly sink into deep layers of your skin. As they nourish and soothe your skin, our proprietary blend of beeswax leaves a non-greasy barrier on your skin -- keeping moisture in and protecting delicate skin from everyday wear and tear.

Moisturizers and lotions available commercially are primarily made of up three kinds of ingredients:
- Humectants, which draw moisture into the skin;
- Emollients, which soften your skin and improve surface appearance;
- and Occlusives, which create a protective barrier on the surface of the skin and prevent moisture loss.
They may also contain ingredients that enhance spreadability (also called viscosity), stability, shelf life, scent, color, and prevent ingredients from separating (also called emulsifiers).
This salve is primarily considered an occlusive, meaning it is designed primarily to be a barrier between your skin and the world. Occlusives both protect skin from daily wear and reduce how much moisture is being pulled out of your skin. It also includes rich emollients and humectants.
We designed this salve specifically to protect and nourish hangnail- and infection-prone cuticles during dry winter months or during heavy work. But it's a versatile and handy tool that can enhance any skin care program. Use it on its own, with our moisturizing Oil Serum, or to add an extra occlusive layer over your favorite lotion or skin oil. It's ideal for hands, feet, or any part of your body that needs a more custom skin care approach.
