As climbers, our hands take a beating. Over years we have never been satisfied with the skin products we've tried. They either didn't work or felt greasy on our hands, and many of them had unnatural ingredients that we didn't want to put on our skin.
Our family had used the medicinal plants in our gardens for a variety of other items, including skin care products. We were thrilled to discover the healing power of Nature! We decided to try making a climbing specific salve. From there, we tested and experimented with different ingredients and proportions until we settled on the product that became Hold On Climbing Skin Repair.
It didn't take long before many people that were NOT climbers LOVED our salve, so we made a more all purpose Skin Repair for every body.
Both of our salves are made with the same organic homegrown ingredients, the ratio of ingredients is what makes each unique. The Climber's Skin Repair has more beeswax and is therefore firmer. The Skin Repair is softer and easier to dig into. The Skin Repair also has less Essential Oils (only lavender) so if you have sensitive skin, that would be the better option. Both can be used on every part of your body. No fillers or additives are ever used. These products are as pure as they come.
All of the plants in Hold On are grown on our family's biodynamic homestead on the South Shore of Lake Superior. Hold On requires the work of our whole family to bring those plants from the garden into your tin. We infuse those hand picked and homegrown plants with organic olive oil. Then we melt together local beeswax, shea butter, and add a blend of powerful essential oils. The result is a smooth, velvety salve that is perfect for healing all of your splits and flappers.
Hold On is not just limited to climbing, as it also works well on chapped lips, cracked hands, bruises, scrapes, dry skin, split heels, eczema and cuts.
The Lotion Bar was created upon request to make application easier. It's the same powerful mixture of oils and plants, just in a bar form. For those of you who don't want to dig into the tin, try the ease of a lotion bar!
