BALM | For Skin, Shave, Hair, The Works | 3.4 oz. Bamboo Jar
CULT+KING BALM (aka SHAVE) | For Skin, Shave, Hair, The Works | 3.4 oz. Bamboo Jar
The organic botanical synergies godsend.
This was our company’s first product that we started developing before there was even a company. We set out to create the best goddamn shave cream on earth, 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. We called it SHAVE, and marketed it to men.
Pretty quickly, we got startling feedback, which in hindsight was not so startling after all. When you combine all these great ingredients in a jar, you should expect great things. Women were dabbing it under their eyes every morning. Men were combing it into their hair every day instead of their usual product, and liking it better. Women were getting better results with dry skin on their face than with their super-expensive department store brands. The minute people got over the idea that it was meant only for shaving, they found all kinds of uses, and they loved it. Couples each wanted their own jar.
So now it’s called BALM, because it’s for everyone, for everything. No one has ever created a product like this before, and we couldn’t be happier for people to discover and benefit from its natural goodness.
No artificial color. No artificial scent. No parabens or formaldehyde-based chemical preservatives. No animal testing. Vegan. Gluten-free. Cruelty-free.
It’s Organic Skin Care | Antioxidant moisturizer, organic ingredients and herbal synergies make BALM an all-purpose, go-to product for men and women alike 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.

But use it before and after to give your guests the maximum smooth skin experience.

Ingredient Deck (most to least)
Organic Aloe Leaf Juice | Instead of adding water as the cheap filler most products use as a base ingredient, we start with Organic Aloe Leaf Juice. That’s why CULT+KING products are so concentrated that you can use less to achieve more. Aloe Leaf Juice soothes rash and sunburn, helps skin and scalp retain their natural moisture, and helps prevent acne.
CULT+KING’S SIGNATURE NATURAL PRESERVATIVE SYSTEM | Certified Organic Blueberry Tincture | A hydro-alcohol mixture prepared with certified organic blueberries infused into certified organic cane sugar alcohol to extract the widest spectrum of plants’ phytochemicals and antioxidants.
Our hydro-alcohol neither dries not moisturizes, but is a perfect delivery system for our balanced, moisturizing and humectant ingredients, in addition to helping ingredients to penetrate the skin. Most importantly, our signature natural, organic tincture preservative system is paraben and formaldehyde-free.
Organic Shea Butter | Rich in fatty acids, shea butter is an extremely effective, multi-purpose, Vitamin A butter suitable for all skin types. It is widely recognized as a superb moisturizer with exceptional benefits for skin and hair, including protection from environmental damage. The unique properties of Shea are evident in the name of the tree it comes from, the karite tree, meaning TREE OF LIFE.
Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil | Rich in Vitamin E, zinc, omega 3- and 6- fatty acids as well as antioxidants, it has tremendous benefits for the skin in terms of retaining moisture, fighting free radicals and maintaining a youthful appearance.
Organic Witch Hazel Tincture | Tightens skin; Removes redness and puffiness; and controls oil production.
Organic Jojoba Seed Oil | So many beneficial properties, but the real miracle is the easy absorption into skin for conditioning and delivery of our other natural ingredients. Jojoba Seed Oil is a natural, plant-derived, non-pore clogging oil so strongly similar to the sebum produced by our own skin glands that it soaks right in.
Organic Glycerin | Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it attracts moisture from the air and “pulls” it into your skin.
Organic Emulsifying Wax | A natural stabilizer for consistency. From vegetables, not from bees.
Soapberry Concentrate | From a certain genus of tropical plant whose berries produce nature’s detergent Saponin, a low-sudsing, natural “soap” that removes dirt and oil.
BALM Essential Oil Blend | For natural scent and healthy botanical goodness for skin. Clove, Black Pepper, Spearmint, Lavender, Tea Tree and others make the scent of BALM soothing and habit-forming.
Menthol Crystals | Turns on the cold receptors in the skin for more blood flow.
Caffeine | Tightens skin especially around the eyes. Lifts beard to stand up for a closer shave.
Malic Acid | A fruit acid that exfoliates skin to rid you of dead skin cells, reducing ingrown hairs, and resetting pH to match skin’s ideal state.
Tartaric Acid | A natural alpha-hydroxy citrus acid that promotes shedding of the outer layer of dead skin cells that cause skin to look dry, dull and less youthful.
Organic Grape Seed Oil | A non-comedogenic oil that won’t clog pores while balancing oil production and building collagen. Very high in Vitamin A.
Organic Sunflower Seed Oil | Loaded with beneficial antioxidant properties but even more, a strengthener of skin’s natural barrier function to stop water loss and toxin intake.
Xanthan Gum | plant-derived viscosity.
