I get this question a lot at craft shows and wrote this to help you undersand how they are formulated. What is the difference between a Lotion, Cream, Body Butter and a Salve/Balm?
A salve or balm is a simple combination of oil(s) and beeswax. Beeswax is melted with the oil and then when it cools it will harden into your desired consistency. It's basically making a solid form of a herbal infused oil for ease of use. It can also have other things added to it such as essential oils, nut & fruit butters, vitamin E, etc. This gives it a long, stable shelf life without added preservatives. Lotion : A lotion is created when you take oil & water and blend it together using an emulsifying agent such as emulsifying wax or beeswax and friction like a blender to combine it all together. Lotion usually has a higher concentration of water to oil (70% water, 20% oil, 10% emulsifying agent). Depending on whether or not you use preservatives, lotions will have a shorter shelf life due to the high concentration of water. Lotions like creams are made with water and thus in order to have a stable shelf life, they either need to have preservatives added, or if you don't want to use a preservative, you need to store this at cool temperatures such as in the refrigerator in order to prevent the growth of yeast and bacteria. Cream : A cream is also created when you take oil & water and blend it together using an emulsifying agent, typically emulsifying wax or beeswax. Creams have a higher concentration of oil in them than lotions (45% water, 45% oil, 5-10% emulsifying agent), making them thicker, heavier and more moisturizing. Like lotions, creams contain water and thus need a preserving agent or should be stored in the refrigerator. You can make a cream with a lower percentage of water, and a higher percentage of oil. 15-20% water or hydrosol, 60-80% oils & butters, 10-15% emulsifying agent). Body Butter : A body butter is created by blending natural butters like shea butter, cocoa, butter and/or mango butter with infused oils . My body butter blends usually tend to be a blend of butters and liquid carrier oils making them more malleable and easy to apply and absorb into the skin. An example would be 60-70% butters and 30-40% oils). We Tested the 6 Best Climbing Balms & Salves by Destroying Our Skin. Climbing Balm, Salve, or Cream Score Size Style Top Pick: ClimbOn Original Bar. 0.5 oz Bar Best for Soft Skin & Gym Climbing: ClimbSkin Hand Cream. 0.5 oz Salve Budget Buy: O’Keeffe’s Working Hands Hand Cream. We rounded up our favorite six climbing skin-repair remedies and set about destroying our hands for a month to declare an overall winner: the ClimbOn Original Bar. Truth be told, this was a difficult test — skin recovery is hard to track precisely. Ultimately we felt that ClimbOn produced the most reliable recovery in the most desirable and convenient package. A surprising amount of dirt-slinging happens in climbing salve marketing. Most of these salves claim to be THE salve for climbers and athletes. Wax-based formulas claim that lotions and creams soften skin too much, while the creams claim that waxes lock out moisture and prevent recovery. The good news is this: None of the salves were terrible, and all of them helped a little.
More good news: over the month of testing we learned that a) good skin care does make a difference, but b) it’s not a huge one. Being consistent about applying salve does help, but it’s not life or death — your skin will heal regardless, and many climbing skin care habits (taking care of callouses, letting skin heal) are common sense and don’t cost a dime. The salves did differ plenty in effectiveness, feel, and of course, price. ClimbOn is one of the more well-known climbing salve brands, and it turns out the respect is warranted. For starters, ClimbOn is intuitive and handy to apply. The bar is solid, but after warming up in the hand it creates a nice layer of balm on the skin.
It’s neither oily nor obtrusive, and it stays on without getting in the way. The ingredients are plant-based and food-grade, which is important for some customers. I’m a fan of the bar style — it means that if a cap comes unscrewed in your climbing pack, you’re not going to find your quickdraws coated in cream.
