Our all natural anti chafing and skin restoration salves protect your skin from damage, and moisturise dry, irritated skin. Our sticks and tubs are used by athletes including runners, cyclists, triathletes, and swimmers, and by anyone, anywhere wanting to improve skin health.
At Squirrel’s Nut Butter (SNB), we make the world’s best all natural, anti-chafe and restorative skin salve. How did we get here?
Our skin salve was originally created to repair and restore dry, irritated skin. The co-founders' daughter has eczema and they wanted to soothe it. Over-the-counter ointments and steroid creams weren't working. So, one of the co-founders, Stacy, set to work in her kitchen and eventually concocted a winning recipe. Thanks to the healing powers of all-natural ingredients, their daughter's eczema was relieved.
It was another year before SNB was officially formed. That's when Brian Marshall, nicknamed Squirrel, used our slick salve on a mountain bike ride in place of his usual anti-chafe stuff. It worked better than the usual stuff. The co-founders wanted to make the world a chafe-free place, but they needed to name the product before they could market it.
In honor of the man who dared to use our skin restoration product in an unconventional way, Squirrel's Nut Butter was born.
Since 2015, we've been keeping your skin healthy and free from chafing and blisters. Athletes, outdoor enthusiasts and skincare fanatics have utilized the preventative and healing effects of SNB in running, cycling, triathlon, hiking and everyday life. Since our early days, we've also expanded our product line beyond the original recipe. Our products 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.
Let's stop chafing, blistering and dry skin for good, together. Help us share the SNB love widely and liberally. Stay lubed, friends.
Our products withstand the toughest conditions. In the heat of the desert or the monsoons of the high country, our salve stays slick and effective.
Prevent and repair. Use our salve as an anti-chafe product to prevent chafing and blisters, or use it to repair and restore dry, irritated skin.
No Squirrels Harmed
We only test on consenting humans. No squirrels were harmed in the making of our products. We let squirrels be squirrels.
At Squirrel's Nut Butter, we believe that natural ingredients are better than synthetic ones. That's why we use only all-natural ingredients in all of our products. If it's not natural, it's not good enough for your skin. That's what we think.
We believe that your skin deserves the highest quality product with no compromises. That's why we oversee every step of production. We hire local people in Flagstaff, Arizona to label our containers, we mix and pour our ingredients ourselves, and we fulfill and ship every order.
We believe that community is important. That's why we sponsor running, cycling, triathlon and other events around the country, and we volunteer at events in the southwest. We invest our time and energy in the endurance community because we see the value in supporting the people and events that support us.
Most of all, we believe that everyone should have healthy skin. Our products aren't just for preventing skin damage. And they aren't just for repairing damaged skin. Our products were intended to both prevent skin damage and repair and restore damaged skin. We do it with all-natural products that keep your skin healthy throughout the day or night.
That's the Squirrel's difference.
