Chris Thornley – Squirrel’s Nut Butter

At Squirrel’s Nut Butter, they believe that natural ingredients are better than synthetic ones. When owner Chris Thornly’s daughter had severe eczema, his wife wanted to treat it with the most natural and simple ingredients she could think of. Coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, and vitamin E oil were the four ingredients that created this popular salve.  Squirrel’s Nut Butter became popular for athletes when one of Chris’s friends decided to take the salve with him on his bike ride. Since then, athletes across the country have used this salve for so many different purposes. The salve is now manufactured in different countries, and even sold in big retail stores like REI.
