Melody Iles has been a Naturopathic Practitioner and Certified Clinical Master Herbalist since 1998. She developed the original Gotu Kola salve, Lavender salve and Ageless Skin Oil in the mid-1990’s.
MelRu Skin Salves were tested by: ANRESCO – analysis research consulting in San Francisco, CA on August 14, 1998 and was found to be a well emulsified and stable product.
M. Iles, Phd started making salves and Ageless Skin Oil for clients that suffered with sensitive or damaged skin and were unable to get positive results with commercial products.
Most commercial products use cheap ingredients. Instead of using pure unrefined oils and organic ingredients, most commercial skin products are made with mineral oils, chemicals, synthetic scents and then are placed in plastic containers. Products designed for shelf-life.
