~ The video testimonial above is by Shane Ellison for Sierra Madre Sun Cream.
~ While camping in Southern Colorado this past fall there was a mama and baby brown bear bulking up for winter from trash cans and messy campers in the area. I felt bad that these bears who were harmlessly scavenging human leftovers just to survive in a year of intense drought were being pushed out of THEIR homelands by humans. One evening we returned to our campsite to find ma and bebe bear raiding our cooler! The bears scampered off and we started picked up what was left. We discovered that of many tasty options, the Sierra Madre Sun Creme was the container that had been completely licked clean! They got half way through a jar of almond butter, one of peanut butter, salad dressing, even mayo. But the #1 tastiest condiment was the sun creme! I actually felt better having contributed high-quality fats to their winter hibernation bellies.
~ You saved my life in the Grand Canyon. Well, saved my life is a bit drastic, but without your Super Salve, my trip would have been much, much worse. Myself and 3 friends recently hiked south to north rim of the Grand Canyon over 4 days. We started off hiking down the South Kaibab trail and setting up camp at Bright Angel Campground. I'm in semi-good shape, but not a hiker. I started chaffing between my legs about 3 miles down the S. Kaibab trail and it just continued to worsen. So much, that I couldn't go day-hiking with my counterparts the next afternoon. I approached one of the rangers and they gave me some Gold Bond Powder, but that provided little relief. I need something because the next day we were hiking out to Cottonwood Campground and then out the North Rim the day after. On the second day when my friends returned back to Bright Angel from day-hiking we walked (me still in pain) over to the Phantom Ranch for a few beers and air-conditioning. That's when I saw "My Precious" (that's how I referred to the Super Salve throughout the rest of the trip). I applied the Super Salve that evening and had no issues hiking over to Cottonwood the next morning. I stopped to reapply about half way through the hike. I applied some that evening and also before hiking out N. Kaibab that next day and did not have any pain or issues. Without the Super Salve, I would have made it, but would have been grimacing in pain for most of the trip. Just wanted to share my story and tell you that you have a great product. - Jeremy Minich
~ I am SO impressed with this sunscreen. It smells great, feels great AND works. My 9 year old son has always hated wearing sunscreen, even the chemical-free ones. This is the first sunscreen he has ever liked putting on. I am also very sensitive to chemical sunscreens. I taste them as soon as I put them on any part of my body. The other chemical-free ones work, but don't smell or feel nearly as nourishing as this one does.Mahalo nui loa. (Hawaiian for thank you.) - Marie Fitzsimons
~ I am a High Speed downhill longboarder! Regularly skating Sandia Crest and other mountains at the nice speed of 50mph and up. If that sounds hard on the body, it is. I have been a loyal Arnica Salve buyer of yours for ten years, using it and recommending it to everyone with bruises I know! Recently I picked up your Super Salve as a use for road rash (since we all know arnica is for topical) and I was truly ASTOUNDED by its power. Road rash is a tricky wound since bandaids stick to it, showers make it burn, and your sheets can make you hurt. But the healing AND painkilling properties of this little stick make it the PERFECT choice for any and all road rash. You have a lifetime customer folks. - Christopher C.
~ I absolutely love your Mimosa and Combo creams! I wish they were stocked in natural food markets here in the Seattle area but your online ordering is also great! I get so many compliments on my skin when I consistently use these moisturizers. When I forget to use them for a few days my face gets very ratty and dry. Every single other skin moisturizer I have ever used -- even those in natural stores contain alcohol and parabens and are actually so drying they create an addictive effect making it necessary to fall into a cycle of continually needing to use even more of these products to "re-moisturize." I have also been very much influenced in my everyday life by your encouragement not to put anything on your skin that you can't eat! I wish I could buy a tub of your moisturizer for everyone who has complimented my skin since I started using it so they can be as satisfied as I am. Thank you so much! - Kristen in Edmonds, WA
~ My newborn had developed a serious rash which his pediatrician prescribed everything for eczema, nothing worked my husband and I used everything that was on the market and behind the counter. Nothing worked!! We were very frustrated our beautiful baby could not clear up, until my mother in law had been referred by a friend who sold this baby bottom cream to purchase it. We tried it and now can not live without it my baby had cleared up this rash that was incurible for over 7 months. He is one years old and has beautiful skin. Thank you. - Kerri in New Mexico
~ Hello, i am the woman in Moab for whom you draw off the Comfrey Leaf Lotion before you add the fragrance. I thank you so much for this courtesy. Since living in the southwest. I count on your products to protect my skin. I actually use the Comfrey Leaf for my face / once a day in the morning. I have 74 years. My skin is clear and healthy. Younger women ask what face lotion i use. They are surprised to learn that i use your Comfrey Leaf. At night i use the Calendula salve on my face and hands. Super Salve is great for healing the feet after a river trip / smile. So thanks again. I really appreciate your products. Kaatherine Hunter in Moab, Utah
~ You are Amazing! I am so incredibly ecstatic right now.... Today I found the Mimosa face and body creme and I am in LOVE! Thank you so much for making my day (and face) feel fabulous! Funny thing, I have been living in CO for 2 years now after spending 8 years in Albuquerque. It took me going to CO to find your products, as I never had heard of them in NM. No matter, I love the face cream and am so thankful for your talents! Kindest-Jennifer Hartrich
~ Thank you for creating "super" products for everyday people like me. I found your site two years ago after searching on-line for products containing DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, and vitamins C & E. After recovering from the sticker-shock I suffered viewing a well-know doctor's web-site and feeling that products that make you look fabulous weren't for me, I was overjoyed to learn that not only did your product contain the compounds I was looking for they were affordable, all-natural, and smell great!! My skin looks and feels wonderful! I know there is no wrinkle cure - but I intend on looking and feeling my best as long as I live! Please keep making your awesome Power Repair products for people like me. Thank You, Sue in New York
~ Hello, I wanted to write your company a heartfelt thanks. Recently, I received a sample of several of your products at the Soulstice Trail run. I had never used them but was truly amazed by the lip balm tin. I unfortunately got a call on November 10th my Father fell ill back home. He was diagnosed with lung cancer and was in awful shape. I left to fly home right away. The treatments were not an options, and all we could do was try to comfort him. The oxygen had dried his lips terribly and I applied your weird looking green lip balm to my Dad. Understand he is a hardcore old school texas redneck, so funky natural medicine does not appeal much to him. After using it for a day he refused to use anything else from then on. I had no idea how lucky I was to get that sample. It is a small thing but eased and comforted him and myself. I felt awfully helpless and this was something I could do to help go figure. Little things sometimes make a great deal of difference. Thanks for supporting the Soulstice Trail Run in Flagstaff, but more importantly thanks for easing my Dads last days... J. H. J. passed on Dec 2nd of this year in Shreveport, LA. I will never be able to express what your company did for me. Thanks Again
~ Dearest Supersalve, I could own a BMW with all the money I have spent on lip product over my life- time. I might even go so far as to consider myself a connoisseur. I dig lip stuff. My boyfriend is a 'professional' outdoorsmen of sorts, mountain guide, climber, flier, skier and all around Super Sender. His profession knows dry lips and knows it takes an exceptional product to solve the problem. Now, just the other day I was in the car with my boyfriend and he said, "Hey baby, check out this super dank bomber rig." He was, of course, referring to The Super Salve Co.'s SUN SALVE. Well, I popped that cap off, smoothed the delicious stuff across my lips and was immediately sold. It is by far the most emollient, delightful, long lasting, super hydrating lip stuff I've ever used. SUN SALVE is more than a necessary lip product: it's an experience. Sometimes I'm not s! ure if I want to rub it all over my body, eat it or spend hours rubbing it on my lips and making out with my super sexy super hero boyfriend. Thanks so much SUPER SALVE. We want to get it for all our friends and families for stocking stuffers for the Holiday season.
~ The thing that prompted me the most to write to you was friends, Hans and Jeri (they are a married couple), just had their baby 2 months too early. Their baby Ezekial was in the baby intensive care for over a month. Anyway, they did not want to use any of the hospital products for his skin. So they went and bought some of your baby cream to use. They used it on him everyday in the hospital and loved it. It took some of the nurses a while to get use to it because they were so use to their generic stuff. Some of the nurses were so shocked over it, such as the mountain rain water, they were dumbfounded, they had never heard anything like it. The hospital is like another planet, everything is so sterile and corporate. Some of the nurses grew to love your product and said they would use it again and recommend it to others. We were talking about your heavenly products the other night and I thought that I should tell you that you are the best. Thanks for making your magic potions.
~ thank you thank you thank you. hi supersalve people! I have suffered from acne since I was like 9, and I'm almost 15 now and still have bad acne. I have tried many things to cure this HORRIBLE disease, and nothing has worked well - and they all dried out my skin, and made my skin peel, and they all smelled bad! I figured I'd give your facial kit 2 weeks to do its magic, then look for something else if it failed to work. GUESS WHAT!!?? it's the 4th day and I'm seeing a BIG DIFFERENCE!!! I also LOVE how everything smells - I especially enjoy the peppermint smells! your product has given me self confidence - and I thank you greatly. I will most certainly order more!
