FAQs

As you research different healing oils or salves you will notice that although some target very specific problems, many have similar properties.

If the descriptions for Sea Buckthorn Salve, Tamanu Salve, and the Tamanu Sea Buckthorn Healing Oil seem very similar, that's because they all contain really great natural, but very different, bioactive ingredients that heal.


Organic-Sea-Buckthorn-Skin-Care

SEA BUCKTHORN OIL: Sea Buckthorn oil contains approximately 190 bioactive substances. It has a beneficial effect on skin because it is a strong antioxidant and is rich in Omega fatty acids, beta-carotenes and vitamin E.

The moisturizing oil easily penetrates deeply into the skin and has anti-inflammatory and anti-microbiological activity that helps promote healing and reduce scarring. It also may help kill the Demodex mites that can cause rosacea.

 

 


Organic-Tamanu-Oil-Skin-CareTAMANU OIL: Tamanu oil has been used in traditional medicine for ages, specifically for its ability to speed the healing of wounds by fighting bacteria and increasing cellular regeneration.

It also has anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, antibiotic, and antioxidant properties. What really sets tamanu oil apart from other oils is its unique chemical composition. It contains a unique fatty acid called Calophyllic acid, a natural antibiotic called Lactone, and a natural non-steroid anti-inflammatory agent called Calophyllolide.


Although salves are semi-solid at room temperature, they soften quickly once applied to the skin, making them very portable and less messy than oils. 

To help you choose between the two salves, here are a few suggestions based on our experience and customer feedback.

So, what about the Tamanu Sea Buckthorn Healing Herbs Oil?

Tamanu-Sea-Buckthorn-Healing-Oil

 

The oils plus the infused botanicals are highly emollient, chocked full of antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory and regenerative properties that make it great for any kind of tissue in need of repair.

 

 

Some differences between healing salves and healing oil:

  • Absorption Time
    • Since herbal salves are made up of oils and beeswax, they will often sit on top of the skin and take a bit longer to penetrate the layers of the skin
    • Sometimes you want penetration to take longer and last longer, like with a simple scrape--so use a salve
    • Sometimes you may want faster relief, like when you have a burn--so use an oil

  • Continued Hydration
    • When you do not cover a scar, cut, or scrape it dries out and scabs over. A scab is not always a good thing because, especially if it forms too quickly, it can act as a barrier to healing
    • You want to keep a cut moist to help prevent a scab from forming
    • While both the oil and salve will keep the area moisturized, a salve will provide a moisture barrier that lasts longer than an oil
    • If you choose to use only an oil, then use it more often to dab the area to keep it supple until new skin begins to grow

Tamanu-Sea-Buckthorn-Healing-Skin-CareThis product may be new to Chagrin Valley’s product line, but it is not new to me.

I formulated the recipe for our Tamanu Sea Buckthorn Healing Herbs Oils about five years ago. I wanted to create a concentrated oil using my two favorite healing oils that I could use in conjunction with our salves for healing surgical scars, burns, skin rashes and other irritations.

I tend to use both the healing oil and the salve. Sometimes I use the salves for the first few days or a week (depending on the problem) and then switch to the oil. For some surgical scars, I used both the oil and a salve every day for weeks.

The answer is, YES!


Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is a USDA Certified Organic company. Certified Organic Skin Care

The most important consideration in any business is its customers. Today's world of misleading claims, false advertising, and simple deception, often leaves consumers trying to discover the truth about personal products and their ingredients.

  • We want our customers to know that we are committed to transparency in everything we do.
  • We want our customers to know that when we say "organic," we mean it.
  • We believe that in becoming a USDA Certified Organic company, our customers do not have to wonder if we really use certified organic ingredients or if our organic products are truly organic.  
  • So we choose to be a certified organic company and abide by the strict standards required for organic certification. 

Why Did We Become a Certified Organic Company?

What Do All of the Organic Labels Mean?

Organic Soap Labeling

 

 

Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is certified cruelty-free by Leaping Bunny.

The Leaping Bunny Program was developed in 1996, by The Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC), to identify and support companies that are doing their part to help eliminate the unnecessary use and mistreatment of animals to test cosmetic products and ingredients. The CCIC is made up of eight animal protection groups including the Humane Society of the U.S., as well as groups from Canada and Europe.

At Chagrin Valley we obviously do not test our finished products on animals (other than human volunteers), but what about the raw materials, the ingredients we use? Many products display labels claiming that their finished product is ‘not tested on animals’ but this does not guarantee that the product ingredients are actually free from animal testing.

The CCIC Standard is a pledge that a company makes to remove animal testing from all stages of product development. Our pledge to buy ingredieCruelty Free Natural Skin Carents that are cruelty-free is integrated into the purchase order contract for all of our suppliers.

Personal care products displaying the “real” Leaping Bunny logo are certified ‘cruelty-free' using the internationally recognized Humane Cosmetics Standards. These rigorous standards require that no animal testing is performed or authorized for finished products or ingredients in any stage of product development by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers after a fixed cut-off date. All Leaping Bunny companies are subject to independent audits and pledge commitments are renewed on an annual basis.

We often receive questions as to whether our soaps, shampoos, and otherNatural Organic Carrot Soap natural products are safe to use during pregnancy.

 

We recommend that expectant and nursing mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skin care routine with our products, or any other line of products.

 

 

Read the label on a bar of commercial soap. Read the label on your jar of moisturizer. Now read the ingredients in a Chagrin Valley product.

We use Natural Organic Yogurt Soapquality natural and USDA Certified Organic ingredients. No synthetic additives, colorants, fragrances, preservatives or chemical derivatives are used.

There is nothing in our all natural basic soap or other products that could cause a problem in pregnancy.

Topically applying the herbs present in many of our soaps, is also not a problem. Your skin will absorb much less herb from the soap than if you would sprinkle them on your food.

 

Essential Oils

Organic Essential Oil Skin CareThe issue that seems to be of most concern is the use of essential oils during pregnancy. There is an awful lot of confusion and inaccurate information concerning the use of essential oils in pregnancy.

The question of safety and safety testing has a lot to do with the actual “dose” of herb/essential oils. Most of the clinical research on essential oil safety is based on information for internal (actually ingesting) large doses of herbs, essential oils, or herbal "medicines." Obviously there have been no tests done on pregnant women.


The concentration of essential oils that are absorbed through inhalation, as in aromatherapy, and massage is much lower than if you were actually ingesting the oil.

Also aromatherapy and massage therapy use much higher concentrations of essential oils than you find in soap or even in eating the herb. With aromatherapy you are inhaling the high concentrations which get absorbed via the lungs and in the massage therapy the essential oils remain on your skin and are absorbed.

Natural Vanilla Whipped Shea ButterOur scented soaps are gently scented with essential oils, but the choice is between you and your health care professional. The most critical time is the first trimester.

Soap does not remain on your skin very long and the percentage of essential oils used in our products is low. Remember we sell many soaps that have no added scent. 

Just about every one of our products, like lip balms, whipped butters and deodorants has a "no added scent" version.

When there is a growing baby to consider, if you are at all uncertain as to the safety of an essential-oil containing product, or any ingredient, please consult your doctor, midwife or health care professional!

Natural Organic Baby Skin CareWhen it comes to safety during pregnancy it is understandable that many massage therapists and aromatherapists decide to err on the side of caution in recommending the avoidance of certain essential oils.

Some Herbalists and Aromatherapist believe that essential oils that are normally safe to use, are safe during pregnancy, while others will recommend avoiding all essential oils during pregnancy.

Some essential oils that are normally quite safe have hormone-like effects and some even stimulate uterine muscles, both of which would be contraindicated during pregnancy.

 

Please do not ask us if one of our products is safe to use during pregnancy--we will simply refer you to this page.

We do not provide a list of essential oils considered safe during pregnancy because the information available is very contradictory. One aromatherapy source will list an essential oil as problematic and another states it is fine and the information is changing constantly. Please do your own research and consult your doctor, midwife or health care professional for the most up-to-date information.

 

Sensitive Skin Can Strike During Pregnancy

Even if you have never had sensitive skin in the past, you may notice that a Natural Organic Pregnant Belly Creamproduct you have been using for several years now irritates your skin.

The stretching belly is often the most sensitive spot. Other potential problem areas include the hips, thighs and bottom where the skin may become dry and flaky.

Although the exact cause is not known, raging hormones do make you more sensitive to a wide range of things and also your skin is thinning and stretching as you, and your baby, grow.


These changes can behave in unpredictable ways. For example, if you have eczema you may suffer from major flare-ups or complete remission during pregnancy.

Keep your body well moisturized and avoid products that contain synthetic additives, colorants, fragrance or preservatives. Any of these can exacerbate sensitive skin problems.

 

Before trying a new product, you can always do a patch test to test for sensitivity.

And again, we recommend that expectant and nursing mothers check with their midwife or physician before changing a skin care routine with our products, or any other line of products.

 

Trying to choose the right natural soap and skin care products can be a bit overwhelming especially when you have allergies and/or skin sensitivities.

Since we proudly list every ingredient in all of our products, reading the ingredient list will help to eliminate ingredients that may cause you problems.
