Understanding the Super in Supersalve

Medication in a cream effective, but there are side effects. The super in Supersalve creams, balms and ointments are natural and organic, which makes them more compatible with our bodies.

Doctors often recommend switching different types of creams for the same problem for a number of reasons. Sometimes a prescribed cream stops working, or the side effects become too problematic. Preparations differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, so it can become a process of elimination as one product after the other fails to work. Immunological sensitization due to the preservatives in topical allopathic treatments is another negative.  Other common side effects include:

  • Bruising
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Skin colouration
  • Stretchmarks
  • Thinning of the skin

The super in any Supersalve balm is attributed to its organic composition and preparation. Parabens have been used as an artificial preservative in topical creams since the 1920s. While these improve shelf life, they disrupt male and female hormones, increase skin irritation and increase the risk of cancer. Supersalve is proudly paraben and preservative-free as it relies on the combination of natural ingredients, which do a better job of preserving the product.

How does this powerhouse list of organic ingredients strike you? Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Calendula, Eucalyptus, Clove, Camphor Bark, Grapeseed oil, Rosemary leaf, St John’s Wort, Tea tree oil, Lavender, Aloe Ferox, Evening Primrose, and Apricot Kernel are found in a tube of Supersalve Plus.  What’s not to like?


NB: All SUPERSALVE products are completely free from petrochemicals, parabens and phthalates, and are safe for the whole family, from babies to the elderly and everything in between!
