It all started with a skin condition known as DH…
The Bolm Skin Care line began when an herbal salve was first blended in hopes of easing discomfort from a skin condition known as Dermatitis Herpetiformis. A small itchy, burning rash that doctors were calling “a patch of dry skin” was unknowingly being caused by a gluten sensitivity, and the rash would escalate whenever coffee was consumed. After researching further it was discovered that sensitivity to gluten may in fact be caused by high levels of the GMO herbicide Glyphosate (aka Roundup) reeking havoc inside the gut, so choosing ONLY organic, Non-GMO ingredients became extremely important when sourcing ingredients. Well this new remedy worked. It soothed the inflamed skin and relieved the itch, and it also helped the rest of the family cope with their rigorous alpine climate living at over 6,000 ft in Carbondale, CO.
Over time, the popularity of “the balm” as they called it, quickly grew among friends and extended family until one day they realized selling it could potentially become a business! Packaging was chosen, labels were printed, and the “a” in the word balm was swapped with an “o” for the logo because all of their ingredients were sourced from organic farms. And from there, the word bolm lovingly became the acronym:
B O L M = Buy Organic, Live Mindfully
Bolm Skin Care operations have since been moved to the clear blue shores of heavenly Lake Tahoe in the city of Incline Village, NV. The skin care line has now been expanded to include a soothing herbal lip balm to combat dry chapped lips, a deep healing foot crème that also eases diabetic nerve pain, and an extremely effective cold sore treatment. More products are in the works, including an ultra-hydrating hand crème and will launch periodically.
Bolm products are proudly made in the United States, are 100% Non-GMO, paraben-free, and cruelty-free. You can be certain that every ingredient will always be certified organic, unless an ingredient (like vitamin E or candelilla wax) is not yet cultivated organically.
