Phytology Balms

Phytology skin balms are made using high-grade almond oil (EU) infused with a variety of English medicinal herbs, including Chamomile, Ribwort Plantain, Yarrow, and Marshmallow. Our herbs are grown in chemical-free soil at the Phytology medicinal garden in Bethnal Green, East London.

Phytology balms are especially suitable for those who need extra safety while caring for their skins, such as pregnant or breast-feeding mothers, small children, and babies.

Phytology is an artist-run social enterprise, with profits reinvested into the ongoing care of the medicinal garden as a community asset.
