Fourth Phase BellyBirthBalm is crafted with certified organic ingredients, each specifically chosen and recommended by herbalists and mamas around the world for their proven benefits in helping reduce the appearance of C-section scars.
Our BellyBirthBalm is made with moisture-rich ingredients, which are known to help nourish, hydrate, and repair skin.
Calendula Flowers (Calendula Officinalis):
This powerful plant provides a powerhouse of benefits for the skin, including boosted collagen production that accelerates skin healing and helps fight infections. It contains polysaccharides, flavonoids, triterpenes, resins, and carotenes that have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce skin inflammation and irritation.
Note: Some individuals can be sensitive to Calendula Flowers and experience irritation using it topically. Test and wait 48 hours before applying fully.
Olive Oil (Olea europaea L):
This natural oil is loaded with omega-6, omega-3, and antioxidant benefits. Due to its thicker consistency, olive oil is excellent for moisturizing dehydrated skin and has been shown to improve overall skin tone over time. Vitamins A, D, E, and K are also found in olive oil and can be absorbed through the skin for additional healing advantages.
Helichrysum (Helichrysum italicum):
This essential oil is made from perennial flowers found across the Mediterranean and Southern Europe. The plant is traditionally used for medicinal purposes because of its anti-inflammatory, antifungal, and antibacterial properties, and its ability to repair the layers of broken skin. This incredible essential oil can work to increase collagen production and cellular regeneration, which can reduce scarring.
Note: Topical application of Helichrysum can lead to increased sun sensitivity.
Beeswax (Cera Alba):
All-natural and ultra-soothing, beeswax is a potent ingredient that helps rejuvenate dry skin with its long-lasting hydration, and minimize the appearance of stretch marks, acne, and eczema.
