ABOUT THE FOUNDER
For 8 plus years, my hands looked like they belonged on a crocodile. I was embarrassed to shake anyone’s hand & paranoid to touch anything. I always (jokingly) said that if a man were to ever propose to me with my hands looking like this, he would run away. Countless nights I woke up from my sleep scratching the blisters on my hands, scalp, and neck. Sometimes, to the point they would ooze & bleed.
I visited multiple dermatologist who prescribed steroid creams & shampoos. And they worked... temporarily.
However, we all know the story behind steroids. We all know how harsh and dangerous they are towards the body.
Due to my gluten/lactose intolerance, and due to my lack of desire to eat meat, I was transitioning my life in a more “natural” way. I started pinpointing the things that were triggering my eczema/ digestive issues, and the things that helped to give them relief. That’s how I stumbled into creating Minty + ReliePH. I decided to get in the kitchen and formulate a concoction that I could use daily. A concoction that would not only help soothe my itchiness, but also help repair my extremely damaged barrier. A concoction that was natural, toxic free, yet gentle. A concoction that uses plant rich ingredients.
That’s how Minty + ReliePH was born.
Our mission is to provide customers with gentle, naturally derived, and fragrance free products that can not only help soothe irritated skin, but also be used daily. Each formula is made strategically with love and with you on our mind, as we are familiar with the sensitive skin struggles.
This thick, heavy duty moisturizer is great for dry, cracked and super irritated skin. You can use it as an everyday, heavy duty, full body moisturizer, or you can simply use it as a spot treatment on irritated and itchy areas. Lips and eyelids as well! It absorbs beautifully without leaving any sticky residue behind.

Also, zinc oxide paste has long been used as a soothing and anti-itch agent for the treatment of diaper rash. Topical zinc oxide has been also used in treating atopic dermatitis due to its strong antioxidant and antibacterial action.
Sunflower Oil: Virgin sunflower seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe itchy and inflamed eczema skin, and can improve skin hydration and preserve the integrity of the skin's natural barrier.
Castor Oil: Castor oil stimulates tissue growth so that a barrier can be formed between the wound and the environment, decreasing the risk of infection. It also reduces dryness.
