Squirrel’s Nut Butter (SNB) makes the world’s best anti-chafe and restorative skin salve. The founders of SNB, Chris and Stacy, originally created a skin salve intended to heal and restore dry, irritated skin. Their daughter’s severe dry skin symptoms prompted Stacy to explore solutions. But she quickly found that no extant skin health product could properly treat eczema or other conditions that result in severely dry skin. As an allergy nurse, Stacy put her knowledge and skills to the test and, after much trial and error, created an effective healing salve for her daughter’s dry skin. Chris and Stacy offered the product to family and friends around their hometown of Flagstaff, Arizona and the feedback was unanimous: this stuff worked.
The product eventually landed in the hands of a guy nicknamed “Squirrel”. Ever the pioneer, Squirrel discovered that the slick salve proved the perfect substitute for his usual anti-chafe product. Squirrel raved to Chris about the salve’s superior anti-chafe properties, and so Chris rightfully decided to start marketing the product to endurance athletes. Since the original blend included almond oil, it was easy to name the product: Squirrel’s Nut Butter was born.
Today, the simple anti-chafe concoction consists of just four all-natural ingredients: coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax and vitamin E oil. Since 2015, endurance athletes have utilized the preventative and healing effects of SNB in running, cycling, triathlon, hiking and other sports. Our product line has expanded beyond the original recipe to now include Born to Rub, a spicy salve for pre- and post-exercise, Happie Toes, a foot-specific salve blended with peppermint and tea tree oils, and a vegan version of the original Squirrel’s Nut Butter salve.
