PRODUCT CERTIFICATION (1)
Compact by Design is a new sustainability certification created by Amazon to identify products that, while they may not always look very different, have a more efficient design. With the removal of excess air and water, products require less packaging and become more efficient to ship. At scale, these small differences in product size and weight lead to significant carbon emission reductions.

We created Compact by Design to identify products that, while they may not always look very different, have a more efficient design. With the removal of excess air and water, products require less packaging and become more efficient to ship. At scale, these small differences in product size and weight lead to significant carbon emission reductions.
Here are a few of the many ways products can qualify:
The classic and revolutionary climbOn bar, formulated in 1996 with nothing but plants and beeswax. The lotion bar easily rubs onto the skin or can be densely packed into seriously dry or abused skin to provide moisturization and nutritious skin fuel for adventure. It also provides excellent skin health when applied as a daily moisturization routine for common skin issues. We use only real ingredients, sourced from the real earth. They are food-grade ingredients, meaning they hold a higher standard in purity, safety, and reliability. And while virtually all other skincare brands use fillers and synthetics, we never do.

I'm a rock climber, and my hands are naturally very dry. Unfortunately, this means that my hands often crack and bleed if I don't properly maintain my skin before and after climbing. ClimbOn has served as a quick and easy way to maintain my skin without having to make a big deal out of the whole process. I slather on a bit of the balm before I go to sleep after a day on the wall, and I wake up with my skin feeling strong and supple.
This product's main caveat is that the balm is very thick, and it doesn't absorb very quickly into your skin. This means that if you put it on right after climbing, you're likely to grease up your phone and most anything else you touch for the next few hours. That said, if you put it on before bed, it has more than enough time to absorb.
Being a beeswax based product, the waxy residue of the stuff does tend to linger on the skin for a while. I'd say anywhere from 15-30 minutes depending on how thickly you apply it. However, I've only needed to use it 1-2 times daily (morning and evening) so it wasn't a big deal for me. Some people like to apply moisturizers all day though, and if you're one of those people, you'll probably not enjoy the lingering, greasy feel.
As far as the smell goes, I personally really like it. It smells a little different on the hands than it does as a block in the tin. The cedarwood, frankincense, and myrrh start out warm, spicy, and a little musky but fade into something close to oranges and cloves. It's definitely got some value as aromatherapy, at least to my nose.
It doesn't just work on hands. I've used it to soothe scrapes on my knees and elbows, and it works just fine as a lip balm too. Technically speaking, you could also eat it if you got lost out in the bush and needed some quick fat calories in a pinch, though I'd imagine it'd taste a bit funky what with all those essential oils. It'd also work fine as a beeswax candle if you had something to use as a wick. If you have some gold handy, it also doubles as a complete gift package to the Christ Child.
In short, there's a good reason why Climb On! is the most common skin care product seen in the hands of climbers everywhere. It just plain works.
I'm not sure it helps healing cuts directly except by moisturizing and preventing further cracking - but if feels great! Your hands absolutely soak this stuff up! It's beeswax based, so you'll need to knead it in for a while.
HOWEVER - I'm 99% sure that my hands end up being dryer and flakier with this product in the long run. When I started using this I thought it was amazing; then I started to notice my skin was MUCH rougher and dryer throughout the week ... and started to flake up more ... Not tooting my own horn here, but I have pretty nice skin on my hands and only need moisturizer occasionally - and mostly only immediately after climbing to pull back some moisture that the chalk and dust has removed. The changes to the texture of my skin after using this for a few weeks were weird and never something I've experienced - although I've never used a beeswax moisturizer on my hands before... The changes were reversed shortly after I stopped using the product.
When I'm not climbing, which is 3 days a week, I don't really have moisture or roughness issues. I normally just use some Aveeno moisturizer occasionally (see question below), but saw a lot of people using and loving this and it's very packable for the gym. I was also on a climbing trip in Mexico and one of the climbers had this - at the end of everyday we were all begging to use it.
Thought I'd give it a shot - not super happy with the long term result as described above.
I have used other beeswax products like Burt's Beeswax Lip Balm and, while lips are vastly different from hands in terms of their reaction to moisturizers, I found the same problem - After regular use my lips *needed* that lip balm otherwise they became very dry. I'm not allergic to honey, or anything bee related - but, still, maybe my body just doesn't like beeswax ...
Doesn't look like anyone else has this problem - so perhaps treat this review as an anomaly - but it is my experience and hopefully others find it helpful.
**QUESTION** I also pursued this product because I wanted to replace the Aveeno that I use because I'd like to find something more natural without weird ingredients like Dimethicone and Distearyldimonim Chloride ... if people have suggestions that aren't beeswax based ... I'm all ears.
