By definition, a salve is “an ointment used to promote healing or protection of the skin.” It is also known as an ointment or a balm as well.
Salves are typically a plant-infused blend of different ingedients that is applied topically to the skin. You might be asking yourself, whats the difference between salves, lotions or a topical cream? We will explain that in a little more detail…
Topical Salve: Salves are a combination of various oils and beeswax.
Topical Lotion: Lotions are a combination of oil and water mixed with an emulsifying agent and container a higher 70% to 20% ratio of water to oil.
Topical Cream: Heavier than a lotion, a cream has 1:1 ratio of water to oil and also typically includes an emulsifying agent.
So the basic difference between the three types of topicals is how much water is in each product. In the case of CBD salves, no water is used at all producing a much thicker end product when compared to lotions and creams.
