First Aid Beauty’s runaway hit is FAB Ultra Repair Cream. According to the company, one tub of this face and body cream was sold every 3.34 minutes in US Sephora stores. What makes this clean beauty product so special? The Ultra Repair Cream launched in 2015 and can be used from head to toe, meaning it is suitable for the face, lips and body. It comes in a tub and has a whipped texture. Fans of the product say that a little bit of the cream goes a long way.
The Ultra Repair Cream can be used as a daily moisturizer but is also designed to help relieve dry, itchy and red skin. It can also help soothe symptoms of eczema, as one of the key ingredients is colloidal oatmeal. The company says the cream can also be used on babies and children.
A key ingredient in the Ultra Repair Cream is 0.5% colloidal oatmeal, which is whole oat kernels that have been finely milled and processed. It’s an ideal ingredient for dry or sensitive skin, as it helps relieve itching and minor irritation caused by eczema and rashes. Other key ingredients include shea butter, a rich emollient (which means it helps soften skin); allantoin (it’s found in sugar beets and comfrey, and is thought to help with wound healing and skin softening) and antioxidant booster powered by licorice root, feverfew and white tea extracts. Rounding out the ingredients list is glycerin, a humectant (it attracts water); squalene, which is derived from olive oil; dimethicone (a silicone) and eucalyptus leaf oil.
Since the original product launched, a few more versions of it are available, including Ultra Repair Creams infused with cucumber melon; rosemary mint; mango; grapefruit; vanilla; white tea and apricot; jasmine and coconut lime. There’s also an Ultra Repair Tinted Moisturizer for the face.
