SKU: BALM | Hair to Toe Category:


The organic botanical synergies godsend for hair, skin, shave, the works.

The first product that we started developing before there was even a company. Filled with the best, most pure, organic, botanical ingredients. We tested scores of formulas to get it just right, every time getting new ideas and adding new organics and botanicals, until it was the most concentrated mixture of amazing ingredients for skin and hair that we would even imagine. We truly don’t know of any other product on earth with all this good stuff in it. 

When you combine all these great ingredients in a jar, you should expect something extraordinary. First it was shaving. Pretty quickly BALM started to be used for everything!  Dabbed under the eyes every morning. Rubbed it into beards instead of oil. Worked into hair for everything from styling to de-frizzing ends to getting that great second day hair look. Moisturizing hands, elbows and feet. Using BALM as a facial exfoliant and moisturizer instead of department store skincare brands. Couples each wanted their own jar. It’s not soap; it’s an oil-cream suspension with countless helpful uses and properties for healthy skin, scalp, beard and hair.  

No one has ever created a product like BALM before, and we couldn’t be happier for people to discover their own favorite uses and benefit in so many ways from its natural goodness.

BUY BALM REFILLS FOR A CLEANER PLANET:  The reason we made the BALM jar so beautiful is so you will refill it endlessly.  When you’ve used all your BALM, put the empty bamboo jar and lid in your dishwasher to get it thoroughly clean, and refill it with a minimally packaged BALM REFILL.

No artificial color.  No artificial scent. No parabens or formaldehyde-based chemical preservatives.  No animal testing. Gluten-free.

It’s Organic Skin Care  | Moisturizing, organic ingredients and herbal synergies make BALM an all-purpose, go-to product for people who want to treat their skin to the highest-quality, cleanest, most beneficial natural ingredients on earth.

It’s a Non-Lathering Oil Cream Suspension Ideal for Shaving  | It may not lather up, but whatever kind of razor you’re using, you will notice a difference.  Less razor burn and irritation, more smoothness.  For best results, use right out of the shower.  It’s water-activated for shaving, so add hot water, a hot towel, or TONIK for best results. So concentrated that a little bit goes a long way.  Barbers, BALM is not intended to replace the traditional foaming barbershop straight shave experience.  But use it before and after to give your guests the maximum smooth skin experience.

It’s Beard Balm | Soften whiskers without the sparkling shine of regular beard oils.  BALM also moisturizes the skin under the beard. Massage into any facial hair, working down to the skin.

It’s Pre-Shave  | Botanical oils soften whiskers, while caffeine and alpha-hydroxy acids make for a closer shave.  Apply an almond size amount to wet stubble and let stand 2-3 minutes.

It’s After- Shave  | Shea, lavender, clove and cedar soften your skin whole menthol cools it. Rinse face after shaving, then apply small amount to face and neck.

It’s 2nd Day Hair Balm  | Get great 2nd Day Hair TODAY. Work small amount into hair to reduce the puffy, too-clean look.

It’s an Exfoliant  | Dead skin cells make your skin look dry, dull and less youthful.  Get rid of them the natural, gentle way.

It’s a Caffeinated Eye Cream and Face Tightener  | A dab under eyes wakes up your face.  Nobody likes the hungover look.

Frequently Asked Questions about BALM

Question:  I just received my BALM, and instead of being creamy like my last order, the oil has separated.  Why did this happen and what should I do?
Answer:  We hear this sometimes in the hot days of summer, especially when parcels are left in the sun.  BALM is made up exclusively of natural ingredients that are good for your skin, scalp and hair.  Our revolutionary tincture preservative system allows us to offer a product without the harsh chemical preservatives you find in so many products.  Similarly, we don’t add the plastic-based, synthetic chemical binding ingredients found in most products that keep creams from separating in high heat, due to plastics’ high melt point.  Because of this farm-to-bottle approach, BALM is as natural as it gets, thus in hot weather and direct sunlight, it can liquify and separate.  All the good stuff is still in there, it just looks and feels a bit different than intended.  Natural ingredients and purest products have some realities, and this is one of them. We suggest closing the jar tight and shaking it vigorously to re-mix.  That’s what we do.  If that’s not a good enough reason or solution for you, please let us know and we will replace or refund your purchase.

  1. Michelle

    I love this product! I use this as morning face cream and it really helps my aging skin. I initially tried it for my hair finding it too heavy for my fine wavy/curly hair— but when I apply to my face I do use what’s left on my hands in my hair. It seems expensive a first but a little goes a long way!

  2. Amna

    I LOVE IT!!! it’s like magic in a little beautiful jar!! Works like wonder! At first I was hesitant about using the same thing head to toe but its simply AMAZING!!! y’all are one of favorites companies of all time!!
    Did I mention the heavenly smell too!!!

  3. Evelyne Salgues (verified owner)

    An essential! Almost the only thing you need to put in your bag when you travel. It smells heavenly and does wonders on your hair, skin, nails – you name it, Balm can probably help you take care of it… I love love love that it transforms my grey and quite coarse hair into soft silver strands. A must.
    In fact I would probably bathe in it everyday if it wasn’t such a hassle to have it delivered to me in France… Please consider a European stockist?

    This balm doubles as my eye cream and I’m loving it! I’ve gifted this to people and I keep coming back for more. 5 stars all the way

  6. Littlenix

    I use this on my long curly hair, which sucks up a lot of product so it’s probably not super economical, but it does an AMAZING job to prevent frizz. Better than anything else I’ve used. Love this stuff.

  7. Jay (verified owner)

    I adore this product for my dense/thick/curly/low-porosity hair. I use it while my hair is wet after showering and it does a great job at smoothing my frizz-prone strands.

    My only criticism, which isn’t criticism for the product but rather the company, is that I wish there were smaller refills available like there is for Tonik because I can’t afford to pay $60 at once for a hair product. It would be great to have a single refill option for those of us in lower income brackets.

  8. Brittney Bourne (verified owner)

    I’m in love Balm! I live in dry Montana, have combo skin, curly 2B hair (that really doesn’t like products with protein and loves moisture, med porosity, med density, med coarseness) and I initially bought Balm thinking I could use it to scrunch/break my gel cast after I style my hair. My hair didn’t love that (go see my review on Jelly), BUT my skin and my face LOVE it (combo skin). I transitioned to using Balm under my eyes in the morning, and on dry spots over nigh- this is in addition to my night face lotion. It soothes red spots, acne (especially hormonal), heals dry spots, and I love the smell. At first I was nervous to use it on my face because I have sensitive skin…but I’m telling you, there’s nothing like this out there. I’m also glad I got the mini because now when I travel it’ll be easy to pack AND the refills fill it quite a few times. This stuff will last forever, I seriously could go on and on. Try it. You won’t regret it!

  9. Nick

    I use this product on my beard. No other product I’ve tried keep my beard as healthy looking and feeling as this balm. My wife doesn’t care for the smell of it so maybe we could get other scents in the future but I cannot find another product that works this well and I’ve tried a lot

  10. Dawn Lemke

    Use under my eyes in the morning! Helps tighten skin and makes me look awake. Son had surgery a few weeks ago. Use it on his healing incision area and it moisturizes the dry patches left from the adhesive tape.

  11. Allison Capece

    This balm is amazing. Makes my hair look and feel GREAT. I moved from Seattle last year and tried to find a local brand in nyc that compared. I couldn’t because this balm is the best. Also it smells wonderful.

  12. mckaren719 (verified owner)

    Great balm that’s multipurpose – I just like to put it everywhere LOL. It’s great for those with wavy or curly hair that needs a moisture boost. It helps my waves to be a little more defined and healthy looking. Also, I love the fact there’s no preservatives.

  13. Alex (verified owner)

    This stuff is amazing. I mostly use it for my hair but it also works nicely as a moisturizer. I usually have a hard time finding hair products because most creams and such tend to make me break out, but I haven’t had any issues with BALM. It’s perfect for creating a casual healthy look that isn’t heavy or over-styled. It smells great, looks, great, feels great, and I couldn’t be happier with it.

    I’m also equally impressed by CULT + KING’s quality of customer service. I recently had a minor hiccup with one of my orders and the customer representative, Sierra, was absolutely amazing in helping me out. She was empathetic and quick to make things right, and I walked away feeling great about my overall purchase experience, despite the aforementioned hiccup.

    You all are doing a stellar job over there. Keep up the fantastic work!

  14. Vi Le (verified owner)

    This stuff is heavenly.. it smells amazing. The texture is so soft and creamy I could eat it. I use this minimize frizz and separate my curls. I’m not a professional by any means.. haven’t stepped foot in a salon in over a decade. But stumbled on this company by pure luck and am OBSESSSED!!! I’ve bought the whole line!!

  15. Sallie Prewitt

    I used my son’s product and want some of my own.

  16. Wendy J Brown

    Bought this at my hair salon- Mode-Manchester, NH per recommendation from Karen McNeil. It truly is amazing- I have lots of hair, coarse, curly, and difficult to tame. Just a dime size and it blowdries like silky, shiny, smoothe hair. In LOVE!

  17. Ron

    Fabulous product. Pleasant scent; non-greasy; gives hair a slight shine with style and minimum hold. And I rub any excess onto my face if I have taken a shave. Best hair product I’ve come across in a very long time. I initially thought it was pricey but it lasts a long time.

  18. craig leonardo (verified owner)

    Cant tell you how much this one product has changed the way I complete my daily shower routine. Ive never had a better product that is multifunctional and in a good way. Ive used this amazing balm as an after shave , pre shave oil and a leave in hair moisturizer ! Keep up the great work!

  19. D Bauer (verified owner)

    I bought my first balm container after a suggestion from my stylist. I’m hooked. I’m ordering my second refill today. I love the light hold for both my beard and scalp. And my beard has never been healthier. It lasts as well, needing only a small dab to get the complete job done. Big fan.

  20. maradewein (verified owner)

    My hair and I thank you! This product is amazing! It was around a week when I started seeing results for my hair. I have been searching for decent hair products for my curly wavy hair for years but a lot of the products seem to dry my hair out even more. Not this one. My hair is able to hold moisture and my scalp doesn’t itch anymore! Between using the balm, tonik and wash bar my hair feels very happy and healthy!

  21. Amy Edelberg (verified owner)

    I bought this on September 1 after my hairstylist used it after she dried my hair. I’ve been addicted to the smell, and I use it on my hair after I dry it to make it shiny and less fly away. But I mostly use it on my face and hands and forearms! A little dollop goes a long way, it’s very moisturizing on my face, and I love smelling like cloves and spices, it really is a heavenly smell. After 4 full months of use every day, I still have at least a months worth left in the cute little bamboo container. Pretty soon I’ll be buying the huge refill size so I can participate in Cult and King’s sustainable mindset.

  22. shalligan2014

    First of all, this smells like heaven. Then I tried it in my hair and it turns out it’s magical as well. All those little fly aways and annoying frizz- boom, gone! The hubby loves it on his hair as well, and he has a very different texture – so works well on multiple hair types. Plus supporting a company this is environmentally conscious is awesome! Less waste is the way of the future. And who wouldn’t want to reuse those beautiful bottles?!

  23. B Hennessy

    Incredible. I used to used american crew. I literally need 1/4 the amount as I do AC and it gives the hold I want with zero residue. Instant favorite product.

  24. Kristine Zwick (verified owner)

    This is PERFECT for my coarse wavy hair. I love using it to define my curls after using Tonik and finish with Set Spray. I’ve used it as a body, face and hand moisturizer and it’s amazing for that as well. Love it!

  25. Bobby Small

    I love the balm. I have used in my hair and skin. It is the best. Nothing like it. PS the soap and Tonik are just as amazing. I highly recommend all of the products.

    This balm is the best – so many uses, splendid fragrance, the refills ❕❕

  28. Andi Richardson

    Absolutely amazing. Love the smell and the feel. Im a hair stylist and I recommend it to all my guests.

  29. Jake Anderson (verified owner)

    Love this product. I use it in the morning and night, and when i get home from work. I also use it for my moustache.

  30. Kat (verified owner)

    I am completely enamoured with BALM. I rub it on the ends of my long hair to keep the mane moisturized. Whatever residue is left on my hands gets rubbed onto my scalp and roots which has a volumizing effect. I also use it on my grown-out body hair because it makes my pits and other bits soft and nice-smelling without any chemicals. I use it every single day on my face as a moisturizer which makes my skin glow without breaking out. Believe the hype!

  31. Marissa Jones

    As a hairstylist, I am very picky with what I put in my hair as well as my clients hair- but believe me when I say it, Balm is for everyone ! For myself, I like to use this product after defusing my natural curly hair. Just a little bit will go a long way and it leaves me curls looking super healthy, cute, and bouncy! As for my clients, I use a little on the ends after a blow dry or even during styling to for a piece the hair apart. Putting a small amount on your ends when air drying is also a total look. I’ve even caught my boyfriend using Balm on his beard for a little bit of control. Everything about this product is great, no stickiness, no greasiness, smells AMAZING.. I recommend this product to anyone and everyone who wants beautiful, healthy hair.

  32. Susan S (verified owner)

    Holy shhhhhxt this stuff is phenomenal. I use it to give my freshly washed hair a bit of grit and to help tame some of my weird hair flips and cowlicks, but it smells so good I want to cover my whole body in it. Since it’s multi-purpose and full of only good ingredients, I guess I probably could!

  33. Tyler dall

    This stuff is amazing in all sorts recommend to any one
