About Us
 
Bimini Balms got started out of necessity!  My son has amazingly chapped hands that crack and bleed across the knuckles.  I tried everything you could think of off the shelf and NOTHING worked!  Then, I started to do my research and realized why-have you ever read the back of your products at home? 
 
Some nice statistics to know-the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (United States) analyzed 2,983 of the chemicals currently used in personal care products and 884 of them were toxic, 314 caused biological mutations, 218 caused reproductive complications, 778 caused acute toxicity, 148 caused tumors, and 376 caused skin and eye irritations!  How about the most common ingredients?  Sodium Lauryl Sulfate-it CAUSES roughness, flaking, and inflammation of the skin, it corrodes hair...the real shining highlight of this chemical is the fact it is used to irritate the skin to test OTHER chemicals on irritated skin!  Mineral Oil, Petroleum jelly, etc-it's petroleum, the same stuff you put in your car.  It coats the skin and stops it from absorbing moisture, promoting acne and other skin diseases.  Parabens are already banned in Europe as known carcinogens.  Another one that was great to learn about-Ureas, if you guessed that it's made from urine, you guessed correctly!  Also known on labels as Diazolidinyl Urea, Imidazolidinyl Urea, or DMDM Hydantoin and Sodium Hydroxymethyl Glycinate it releases Formaldehyde and can cause dermatitis which can be mistaken for acne.
 
It was time to go back to nature and find a better solution...and I wanted REALLY natural, no chemical processing even in the ingredients themselves.  Thanks to the wonders of insomnia, I was able research all the different benefits to the various butters and oils available on the market and look for suppliers that specialized in unrefined, organic products that weren't tested on animals.  Then it was a matter of deciding the form it would take...let's face it, boys do NOT like lotion tubes.  If they even manage to survive being in the black hole most kids call a backpack, they're messy.  Putting the naturally healing butters and oils together with beeswax made it into a solid, fun shape that is pocket-sized, doesn't leak, and safe to carry even on airplanes!  People saw the results, saw how easy the bar was to use and to keep in their pocket or purse, and wanted their own.  And so we keep growing...now we are doing craft shows in our area, the Hill Country, and hopefully somewhere near you soon!    
 
Many of my customers work in professions, like nursing and the automotive industry, that are rough on hands-they have been shocked and thrilled with ability of our lotion bars to immediately improve their skin quality and keep their hands soft and smooth ALL DAY!!
