Algerita is a Chihuahuan Desert Native that we find to be severely underrated. This powerful plant is known for it's extremely sharp leaves, often used as a hedge in landscaping...but we know it for another reason. Algerita is a wonderful ally for skin complaints that manifest as hot irritation, such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea. In this salve, we have combined algerita with chaparral leaf (our favorite herb for dry + itchy skin!), prickly pear seed oil, rosehip oil, and cocoa butter to cool and nourish the skin.
