For astroturf burns, the natural ingredients used in this balm will help greatly to speed up the healing process whilst helping to protect from infection.

The Yarrow & Plantain work fantastically paired together as both plants contain great healing properties and can help with the pain relief of the wound too.

The photo is of my sons arm, he had a run in with the astro turf during his hockey match and I asked if he wouldn’t mind me documenting his healing process.  The incident took place on a late Saturday afternoon and was almost completely gone by the Thursday!

I highly recommend this balm to have in all sports kits for both children & adults.

Day 1. This was straight after he’d finished his match the balm was applied. Within 5 mins the plantain ingredient has started working and drawing out the nasties, you can see the bubbles forming from what it’s drawing out.

Day 2. The wound is covered in the balm we were applying twice daily.

Day 3. The wound is starting to heal over nicely

Day 4. Still applying to help quicken the healing process.

Day 5. Although this looks awful, this was on the nighttime before bed, the wound was covered in balm for one final push of healing.

Day 6. Almost all gone.

The ‘dreaded’ turf burn is a common injury among hockey, football & lacrosse players. They can be extremely painful and can take weeks to heal. (This is also great for helping heal friction burns from sports halls & gymnasiums).

Astroturf and other types of artificial grass are known to cause burns to the skin more than any other injury.

Astroturf pitches are not the most sterile places on earth. All types of bacteria and other nasty contaminants populate our pitches, the burns you receive from Astroturf will always contain dirt or bacteria, the fantastic drawing properties of the plantain ingredient will help draw out these nasties.

The old adage of “leave it alone and let the air get at it” only delays healing and leads to increased scarring and re-injury. They hurt at the time but not as much if left untreated. In fact left untreated it can be a gateway to serious infection.

The bigger problem with skin abrasions is that they provide sudden exposure of subcutaneous blood vessels to millions of these opportunistic bacteria. In one study, 42% of players harbored staph bacteria!
