Blue Poppy EXTERNALS
You may have or will notice a change in the color of Blue Poppy External Ointments as well as our new names and labels in 2022.
Where appropriate, we are converting all of our ointment formulas to whole herb infusions.
This means that the formula is essentially the same. We are using whole herbs instead of powdered herbs because the powdered herbs create a grittiness that we can eliminate by using whole herbs that are then filtered out. With physical powder of the herbs no longer present, the color of the product will be lighter. Since sources of the herbs change due to availability, there may be variability in the finished product from time to time.
No changes to the herbs themselves have changed, just the process. We have done this to make a better product, especially for the ones that treat sensitive areas. No more grittiness.
However, we assure you that we are still using the same herbs and have added new stiffening agents with additional health benefits. Plus we've added rosemary seed extract as a natural preservative.
In the summer of 2022, ALL Blue Poppy Liniments will contain 100% grain alcohol and not isopropyl alcohol. Also, ALL Blue Poppy Ointments are packaged in glass jars.
Lastly, some have expressed concern over our use of palm oil in our externals and its source. Be assured that Blue Poppy only uses "certifiable sustainable" palm oils from Latin America.
