Omega Balm supports your skin with a nurturing layer that helps skin recover and heal itself as it works hard to improve your skin’s barrier function to lock in its natural moisture for longer.
It’s specialist skincare made just for you… and your loved ones!
All thanks to the hero ingredient Bioactive Sacha Inchi…
…one of the earth’s most nutrient-rich seeds!

It’s also the stand-out hero ingredient in Botanico Vida’s Omega Balm, which works naturally, sustainably and ethically to soothe daily skincare worries.
Plus, a new natural tech active called Castorlatum TM cleverly ‘wraps’ skin, locking in moisture and protecting it from the environment.

About the brand: Botanico Vida
Founder, Kristy Cimesa, came across Sacha Inchi seed oil in 2009 to treat her son’s eczema. Impressed with its improvement, it became a staple for use on everything from dry skin to sunburn and wrinkles. Kristy partnered with friend Hannah Becker to develop the most Omega-rich multi-purpose body oil on the market!
The Sacha Inchi oil was infused with many other organic, omega-rich oils such as Argan, Rosehip and Avocado to create a unique blend with excellent skin penetration and a beautiful scent. This blend became ‘Omega Oil’ the hero product of their new company Botánico Vida (or ‘plant life’). Soon to follow came the nurturing Omega Balm, with all the benefits of Omega Oil but qualities aimed specifically at extremely dry, irritated skin.
Botanico Vida sources ingredients from organic, fair-traded plants and through projects encouraging reforestation.
