About the Brand
Suti is a UK company that was founded by Suzannah Jenkins (Su) and Tina Steadman (Ti). This brand brings something a little different to skin care, they choose their ingredients on their scientific effectiveness as well as on their energetic affect on the skin. They use Reiki, crystals, and the moon cycle to energetically imprint their products with healing intentions.
All of their products are natural and botanical based, using only the finest organic ingredients.
My First Impression
The packaging is great, the balm comes in a glass container and comes with a little plastic scoop for taking out some of the product (that way you don’t contaminate the balm with bacteria from your fingers).
The balm is nice and thick and it melts on contact with the skin. My first impression is that this is a balm that I will want to use on any dry patches of skin I may deal with, such as my elbows, hands and feet. This balm was originally creating as a baby bum balm, and would work really well to prevent diaper rash.
Scent and Texture
The texture is thick, but not too thick that you hurt yourself trying to get it out. It is a bit grainy, because the unrefined Shea butter they use, but it is perfectly normal and doesn’t disturb the product’s effectiveness. The scent is lavender and chamomile, it is soothing and calming.
Using the plastic scoop, the balm is easy to remove. The balm is thick and slightly greasy, but absorbs after a few minutes. It feels good on the skin, relieving dryness almost instantly and coating your skin in a protective barrier.

Price and Size
Who is this product for?
This balm is all about protecting and nurturing the skin, it is perfect for anywhere that needs extra hydration such as the face, knees, elbows, lips or baby’s bottom. It is great for after sun exposure, rubbing into a child’s chest when they have a cold, rubbing onto your neck when you want help expressing yourself, and after shaving.
The ingredients in this product are non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), which is awesome! It means I can use it on my face!
I read a cool trick about mixing the balm with a bit of toner, to get a less oily finish. You could also apply it to slightly damp skin for the same effect.
How well does it work?
This balm does what it is supposed to do, it hydrates the skin and provides a protective barrier, locking in moisture. I love using it on my hands when they are dry, I have used it on my elbows and on my arms. I think it would work really well as a diaper balm for a baby.
What are Other People Saying?
These are screenshots from Suti’s website, they are testimonials for Suti’s Purity Balm.
This is a good skin balm, it smells lovely, absorbs well and has pure ingredients. It isn’t a large jar, but that is o.k because you need to be able to use it up in the 6 month shelf life it has. You really don’t need to use much balm, a little goes a long way, it melts and spreads wonderfully into the skin.
Any dry or irritated skin would benefit from this balm. I love to use it on my hands and elbows, or any eczema flare-ups I have. I have even used it on my face, and found it no heavier than a facial oil.
- excellent, skin healing ingredients
- multi-purpose, can be used all over the body and face
- can be used on people of all ages
- soothing scent
- comes in a glass container with a scoop
- glass container isn’t dark (so light can get in)
I give this an 8/10 because the container isn’t dark glass. I think dark glass makes so much sense because it will make your product last longer. I love that this is packaged in glass rather than plastic, but I would love to see it in a dark glass jar.
If you deal with a lot of dry skin, you could use this jar up before it went rancid, but if you use it very infrequently, you might find that it turns rancid before you can use it all. The shelf life is only 6 months.
