Móa is a balm which is packed full of natural ingredients, and most importantly of all, no parabens – something more and more of us are looking at these days.
It’s a small pot, though a little goes a long way – and it’s great for soothing a graze or bump (something H is having plenty of at the moment, she bruises easily too), calming an insect bite (handy for me!) and it even works as an eye cream and is good for dry skin.
I found that rubbing it onto H’s bruises it was light and smelt good – and she liked it too (as she can be quite particular about putting creams on her). She currently has chicken pox so I’m holding off from using it as I need a good Vitamin E cream, though will be back using it soon. I’ve used it around my eyes and found it really nice and light – and it does have really good moisturising properties. I have horrible dry skin and this did smooth on well and keep my skin hydrated which I was impressed with. I incredibly didn’t get any insect bites this year as I’m prone to being bitten and do react to them, so I’ll be keeping it handy for next year!
Within Móa you’ll find yarrow (Achillea millefolium – an unusual plant named after Achilles who was said to have used it to treat his soldiers), coconut oil, soya bean oil, sweet almond oil and beeswax – all of which have powerful and soothing properties – with the addition of tea tree oil for antiseptic benefits.
Móa comes in a handy handbag sized pot 15ml priced at £4.99 and a 50ml pot for £9.99 – there’s no nasty chemicals, no parabens or artificial preservatives – and it’s availalbe from all good health stores or via their website. The balm is not recommended if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding.
