Marigold Salve is based in Bend, Oregon and was founded by a registered nurse who struggled with dry, cracked hands for years. Hi! That's me. The nurse who used to hide her cracked, bleeding hands under gloves. My name is Laurel and I have worked in the hospital setting since 2008. I love my job, but the harsh soaps and sanitizers took a toll on my skin. I tried numerous hand products but never found one that really worked for me. In 2016 I began researching oils with healing properties and my experiment began. After countless combinations, I found a recipe of natural ingredients that I absolutely love. My skin is now healthier than it has ever been and we want to share the love!
Our philosophy is centered on the idea that simplicity and luxury can coexist, especially when it comes to your skin. We believe that taking care of your body shouldn't come at high cost, which is why our products are affordable without sacrificing quality. In each jar you will find unrefined organic oils, carefully formulated to provide your skin with the nourishment and hydration it needs to look and feel it's best. Our formulations are gentle, effective, and free from harsh chemicals and synthetic fragrances, making them suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. With ingredients that you can pronounce and trust, you can afford to indulge in an experience that leaves you feeling revitalized and confident in your skin.
Why Make Waterless Products?
Our products are waterless. The unrefined, organic components that comprise our skin care have a 2-5 year shelf life on their own. By not adding water, we are able to leave out the preservatives that often irritate the skin and have a negative effect on our health. Because of this, our products are meant to be applied to slightly damp skin. After the shower or just before bed are the perfect time to apply!
