Birch Bark Extract Creams

Our rich, moisturizing, non-greasy, pH balanced, 100% natural creams come in two different strengths.

Our high-concentration ointment cream comes in small containers as you only need a little bit for maximum benefit. It’s ideal to treat problem skin areas and has the strongest campfire smell.

Our regular-strength ultra premium cream has hints of campfire birch bark aroma and is perfect to use daily for its hydrating and protective benefits. It comes in original, sweet grass, lemongrass, lavender and sweet birch scents.

Like our creams, our soaps are made with 100% natural ingredients that leave your skin clean and hydrated after you wash.
