Nourishing all-over balm with a soothing olive oil base / 1.6 oz
Olio E Osso Balm Vita is probably our favorite multipurpose balm: it just hits all the right notes. (We’ve tried and loved many of them; to call one our favorite is saying a lot.)
First of all, it’s fragrance free, which is helpful when you’re looking at balms that you want to be able to use anywhere and everywhere. There is nothing in this formula that could aggravate sensitive skin: just olive oil, beeswax, shea butter, meadowfoam oil, olive squalane, and Ceramide E, an ingredient that helps restore skin’s barrier health.
We also love how readily it melts into skin — which may come as a surprise since its texture is pretty hard right out of the jar — but it still feels deeply nourishing and soothing. It’s beautiful on lips that are perpetually chapped; we also love it on cuticles, hands, elbows, feet, and any place on your body that needs a little extra care. It’s even beautiful on the ends of hair. Luckily, it comes in a hefty jar that invites you to use its gentle formula with abandon.
We asked Olio e Osso’s founder, Paola Lamorticella, to tell us what inspired its creation. She replied, “It’s really getting back to where Olio started, but amped up. Balm Vita has all the ease of the original, but it’s slightly wiser, with added actives and beneficials; it’s scent free and powerful while still managing to have the simple, essential ingredient deck we are known for. I feel like it’s a beautiful jar of Olio’s love for people. Nourishing, strengthening, empowering. All of these descriptives and more!”
