"Belle’s healing balm is ideal for those who suffer from cold sores, sunburn, scratches, scabs, pimples, and dry skin. It also works for skin conditions like eczema. Modestly priced at $14.99, a two-ounce jar of the balm should take you through the rest of winter, and beyond."

Belle’s Healing Solutions LLC
Gavin Ursich, junior entrepreneurship major, began working on the formula for his company's products before he took the Entrepreneurial Experience course. His line of products includes lip balm and healing solutions.
Ursich and his mother started making healing products for their family, and once they found the solutions worked, they went further with the business concept.
“We did a focus group to get reviews on our products,” Ursich said. “The reviews we got said our lip balm was too hard. We worked together to come up with different ways to make it softer.”
The company’s healing solution works for problems with the skin such as cold sores, scratches, scabs, pimples and dry skin.
“Someone in my class buys the healing solution for Eczema,” Ursich said. “It works for minor skin conditions or problem areas.”
Belle’s Healing Solutions LLC officially became a business in October, and Ursich and his business partners are now vendors at the Aurora Red Rock Farmers' Market.
Ursich plans to keep up the business throughout his college career and wants to expand his products to different stores across the country.
