Health Canada has cautioned the use of Comfrey, what are their concerns.
Health Canada has placed a warning on the use of Comfrey of the Russian and Prickly Comfrey variety. These contain a contituent called echimidine, which has been known to cause liver damage when taken internally in large doses.
Matter Company does not use these varieties of Comfrey; instead we use symphytum officinalis, or common Comfrey that has not been cautioned against by Health Canada.
Is Comfrey Safe for use on my skin?
Yes. It is one of the main ingredients used in herbal medicine for helping to repair broken skin. This is due to the presence of allantoin, a chemical constituent that has cell proliferating properties to help heal wounds very quickly.
Loyal customer here!
Love this wonderful product. I have used it for months on end!
The answer to dry feet & toes. Nourishes toe and finger nails!
I regularly apply this to my hands and feet after showering, and they become incredibly smooth. Strangely enough, my cat seems to enjoy both the scent and taste of it, as he keeps licking my feet. I don't quite understand why, but hey, at least he likes it too.
I always have this salve on hand, I have used it for years now. It is great for cuts, and scraps, even lips. I feel it helps healing time.
I take this everywhere and use it liberally. I use the heat rub too but this is much gentler and still has wonderful results for general skin care and healing.
I love this product!! Helped soften my cracked heels and feet and my hands!! Really enjoying the product, wish it came in a larger container!!!
