Being raised by a Registered Nurse and a Clinical Pharmacologist, who established laboratories at both the Hospital for Sick Children and the University of Toronto, Tiffany found herself tinkering around with petri dishes, compounding tablets, and staring into a microscope in her free time.

So, when her newborn son developed a skin condition, she immersed herself in the research and development of a homemade, all-natural healing balm, safe for babies. After a rigorous process of testing and reformulating, the results were undeniable. Within a few days, Tiffany’s little boy’s lesions had vanished. With daily use of her organic Chamomile Baby Balm, his condition has yet to return.

As word spread of these results, local families began reaching out to request some baby balm for themselves.

After experiencing his own relief from extremely dry, chapped skin, Tiffany’s father decided it was time to join forces and bring Birch + Balm™ to a public in need of a natural alternative to conventional, chemical-laden skincare. Until pausing manufacturing in 2019, Birch + Balm™ was selling a line of all natural and organic skincare products for men, women, and children, in stores, and also privately. Each product was carefully prepared by hand in a Positive Pressure Clean Room Laboratory, eliminating over 99% of airborne contaminants. Today, Birch + Balm™ is produced in a state-of-the-art cosmetic manufacturing facility in Toronto, Canada, which prioritizes strict adherence to Health Canada’s regulatory standards, and a commitment to sourcing and processing high grade, natural raw materials for each and every product in our skincare line. As the company expands, the purpose remains the same: Harnessing nature’s healing power, refined through science, balanced for everyday use.
