What's the best container for colder temperatures?

As an all-natural product, the consistency of our salve changes with the temperature. The most versatile container for both extreme cold and moderate heat is the stick. If you are racing or training in colder temperatures, we suggest using our anti-chafe stick. Our sticks are the best application choice for temperatures below freezing up to around 95°F.

What's the best container for warmer temperatures?

As an all-natural product, the consistency of our salve changes with the temperature. The most versatile container for both extreme cold and moderate heat is the anti-chafe stick. Our anti-chafe tubs are best used in warmer temperatures. Our tub blend becomes firmer in temperatures below 65°F but it's perfect for warmer temperatures, as the salve softens. However, the tub blend can still be used in cold temperatures. If the product hardens, simply twist off the top, squeeze the sides of the tub together, and pop the salve, now in puck form, into your hand. You can use the puck like a bar of soap where needed.

Can you use SNB on your feet?

Yes. Our anti-chafe salves also prevent blisters. By putting SNB on your feet, you'll stay blister free throughout the day. Plus, we have a foot-specific blend called Happie Toes. We add tea tree and peppermint oils that help keep your feet smooth and free of fissures. 

Talk about about your Happie Toes product.

Our Happie Toes blend is great for skin restoration. Happie Toes is blended with kokum butter and laced with peppermint and tea tree oils. So, the product is slicker than our original blend, and has anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. Use Happie Toes on your feet and hands to restore dry, cracked skin to health.

What's the difference between SNB and Vegan SNB?

We use beeswax in our original SNB blend. In our vegan blend, we replace the beeswax with candelilla wax, which is derived from the leaves of a bush native to the southwest. 

Do your products stain clothes?

As an oil-based product, there are some fabrics that may stain when they come into repeated and close contact with our product. But in our years of selling products, we have only heard of a few such instances. If a stain does occur, we recommend that you treat the affected area with a spray before putting the item in the laundry machine. 

Do your products expire?

There is no expiration on any of the products, and SNB will continue to be effective long term. However, products are best when used within two years of the purchase date.
