Home / Our Story

At Squirrel’s Nut Butter (SNB), we make the world’s best all-natural, anti-chafe, and restorative skin salve. How did we get here?

Our skin salve was created to repair and restore dry, irritated skin. The co-founders' daughter has eczema, and they wanted to soothe it. Over-the-counter ointments and steroid creams weren't working. So, one of the co-founders, Stacy, set to work in her kitchen and eventually concocted a winning recipe. Thanks to the healing powers of all-natural ingredients, their daughter's eczema was relieved.

It was another year before SNB was officially formed. That's when Brian Marshall, nicknamed Squirrel, used our slick salve on a mountain bike ride instead of his usual anti-chafe stuff. It worked better than the usual stuff. The co-founders wanted to make the world a chafe-free place, but they needed to name the product before marketing it. Squirrel's Nut Butter was born in honor of the man who dared to use our skin restoration product unconventionally. 

Since 2015, we've kept your skin healthy and free from chafing and blisters. Athletes, outdoor enthusiasts, and skincare fanatics have utilized the preventative and healing effects of SNB in running, cycling, triathlon, hiking, and everyday life. Since our early days, we've also expanded our product line beyond the original recipe. Our products now include Happie Toes, a foot-specific salve blended with peppermint and tea tree oils, Saddle Butter, a cycling-specific salve, and a vegan version of the original Squirrel’s Nut Butter salve.

Let's stop chafing, blistering, and dry skin for good together. Help us share the SNB love widely and liberally. Stay lubed, friends.
