Universal Balm


Lab Edition 008 is a universal balm made from a luxurious shortlist of the most sought after ingredients in collaboration with Creech Studios in New York City.

The finest grade of neroli oil, cold-pressed mango butter, hinoki extract from Japan, & Hawaiian sandalwood.

Both Monastery & Creech Studio sampled more than a dozen different formulations to ultimately arrive at number eight.


  • 20ml Aluminium tube with custom Monastery tube-key.
  • A deeply nourishing all-natural balm formulated to provide long lasting hydration and prevent water loss for the skin.
  • The balm has the ability to soften skin, reduce free radical damage by supporting collagen production and improve texture while adding a luminous glow. A great first or last step in both morning and evening routines to lock in nutrients and moisture while maintaining a glowy barrier against the elements of the day.
  • A balm intended for the entire body; use it sparingly (or not) anywhere your skin needs a lift.
  • Lab Editions are special formulations made in limited quantities at the Monastery Lab in San Francisco.
  • Ingredients: Mangifera Indica (Mango Butter Cold Pressed), Vitis Vinifera (Grapeseed Oil), Cera Alba (Organic Beeswax), Citrus Aurantium var. Amara L. (Neroli Oil), Santalum Spicatum (Sandalwood), Chamaecyparis (Hinoki), Piper Nigrum L. (Pepper Black Oil).
