The plastics we use

The tube is recyclable so please dispose of it thoughtfully. The tube contains around 6 grams of balm so you always have over the stated 5 grams.

TGA approved?

We are not TGA approved as yet and currently our products can not be classified as therapeutic goods only cosmetic. We are currently working our way towards this and feel free to ask us what stage we are at.

I can't turn the tube and have to use my fingernail to get the balm out. 

If this happens please give the bottom a firm twist. When the balm sets in the tube it does seal against the side wall of the tube causing a slight vacuum effect.
