FAQ's

85% are naturally active, naturally derived or synthesised natural.

The scientific process whereby the carefully selected, natural ingredients, work together to enhance each other’s performance so that the outcome is far greater than each ingredient could deliver on its own.

NS 8 Heel Balm is a cream that absorbs quickly and unlike thick ointment-like balms it spreads easily and is economical to use.  It feels good and it works. You will feel the difference in just 1 day.

Many heel balms are very greasy and messy, they can make your feet slip on hard floors, slide in shoes and can even stain carpets and bed sheets. NS 8 Heel Balm is different because it has a unique non-greasy formula that absorbs quickly and gives fast results. NS 8 Heel Balm Complex gives you soft, smooth heels without the mess or fuss.

Podiatrists and diabetes educators recommend NS 8 Heel Balm because it has built in exfoliators which means you do not have to use foot files or pumice stones to remove built up or thickened skin.  This makes it particularly useful for people with diabetes.  The AHAs will gently but effectively remove the dead skin, without the threat of taking off too much skin, which can lead to diabetic foot ulcers

NS 8 also contains cooling, soothing and skin restoring ingredients which help repair damaged skin on feet and heels.

Refer to the BRAND PAGE for more information.

NS 8 Heel Balm contains 15% Urea plus other coconut-based moisturisers.

Urea is a humectant (it is able to absorb moisture from the environment and draw it to the skin). It is also an emollient (that softens and smoothes the skin). NS 8 does not rely solely on urea for its moisturising properties but is formulated with multiple moisturisers including urea, coconut triglycerides and allantoin. NS 8 is synergistically formulated for a better outcome.  Most other heel balms are based on a high concentration of Urea, which can make the product very greasy and slippery and even irritating to the skin.   NS 8 has a special blend of moisturisers which we think is a great combination and which is fast absorbing and fast acting.

Urea is a natural by-product, produced in mammalian systems when proteins are broken down. It is excreted in the urine of mammals, but the urea used as an ingredient in cosmetics and personal care products is a synthesised, natural ingredient and not animal derived.

We cannot disclose exact percentages, as we need to protect our formulation however, we can say that NS 8 Heel Balm contains approximately 4%-5% of Lactic and Malic acid, which has a keratolytic and exfoliating effect that helps break down the buildup of thickened and calloused skin on the heels.

Yes, but we don’t suggest using it on your face

NS 8 may cause a temporary tingling feeling, but this should subside quickly.  Due to the natural, ultra-low irritation formulation there should be very little or no irritation, however if you experience irritation, discontinue use.

Using NS8 Heel Balm should be absolutely fine to use during pregnancy, especially as it uses natural ingredients, but if you are at all concerned please consult your doctor.

NS 8 Heel Balm can be used during breastfeeding when applied as per our care instructions on our packaging. It must not be applied to the breast, but it is fine to be used your heels, feet, knees and elbows, while breast feeding.
