Our skin is the largest organ of the human body. It is also a reflection of our overall health. In order for our body and skin to function properly we must receive sufficient nutrition, rest and exercise. A deficiency in any one of these can adversely affect our health and can lead to skin that heals slowly, has poor circulation and looks shallow and dull. Similarly, our skin helps to keep our body healthy by acting as a protective wall against possible harmful effects of the environment. At Pot of Gold, we believe taking care of your skin from both the inside and the outside will lead to a lifetime of good health.

Allergy warning: Pot of Gold skin balm contains coniferous pine tree resin along with beeswax which can in turn hold traces of pollen, propolis, and bee venom.

General Tips for Application:

  • Pot of Gold skin balm contain multiple natural vegetable fats. For this reason the balm should be allowed to absorb fully (usually five minutes) before spending prolonged periods in the summer sun.
  • Pot of Gold skin balm are affected by ambient room temperature and may seem very firm if the room temperature drops below 16c. Pressing firmly or rubbing your finger around the surface of the balm will warm a sufficient amount for most applications.
  • Pot of Gold skin balm do not contain any petroleum, lanolin, topical steroids or cortisone. These substances can be harmful. For more information on what these chemicals can do to your health, read this:
  • Allergic reaction may occur if the person has an acute contact allergy to propolis, beeswax or beeswax components (traces of bee pollen and bee venom). A simple contact test may be peformed by applying a fingerprint-sized amount of the balm to the crease inside your elbow several times a day for several days. If a reaction is noted then discontinue use. People with allergies to bee venom should be cautious as there may still be residual amounts in the balm that may cause an allergic reaction to occur.

  • tree resin

My Opinion:

This is a huge article, but since this is my holy grail product, I've really wanted to share it with you people.

Whenever the season changes, my skin would be really sensitive, and so far nothing had really work for me with the exception of this product. About 3 years ago everybody was raving about this product, but I've only started to use it last winter....

I've actually tried Egytian Magic first, because everybody was raving about it, but it was a disaster, and if you are interested, read my previous articles. Anyway, I've done some researched and notice that the ingredients for Pot of Gold and Egytian Magic are very similar, so I gave it a try.

Apart from healing my skin from the previous damage from the Egyptian Magic, this product smells good, and is cheaper than Egytian Magic, anyone interested consider giving this a try
