At Squirrel’s Nut Butter (SNB), we make the world’s best all natural, anti-chafe and restorative skin salve and we're stoked it's now available in Canada through our distributor Global Hydration who runs this site. But 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.
Squirrel's Nut Butter is distributed in Canada by Global Hydration, a family run business based in Thunder Bay, Ontario. Global Hydration distributes brands their founders are passionate about including Aquatabs, Squirrel's Nut Butter, Vapro, Engo and more.
Hey Canada! Let's stop chafing, blistering and dry skin for good, together. Help us share the SNB love widely and liberally. Stay lubed, friends.
