Also known as Eczema & Psoriasis Balm
Many people rely and trust our original Eczema and Psoriasis Cream and so we would not want to stop making it for them. We would surely be in a lot of trouble if we changed it.
However, we have kept researching how to further improve our formulas. We have included extra ingredients in this cream such as Raw Coconut Oil, Bisabolol and Elderberry Extract.
Our original cream has been very popular for many years and this is designed as a boosted version. We are finding that both version are popular.
This balm can be followed by the MSM Soothing Cream moisturiser which is designed to keep easily irritated skin moist and supple.
Directions: Apply cream topically as required to keep skin moist and healthy.
ALWAYS READ THE LABEL. USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. IF SYMPTOMS PERSIST SEE YOUR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL. WE RECCOMEND PATCH TESTING THIS PRODUCT.

|Marshamallow Root Extract. (Althaea officinalis)||No we aren't putting fluffy treats into our new Eczema Balm. Marshmallow is an African plant that has been used medicinally for around 2000 years. Marshmallow extract contains flavanoids for soothing the skin.The extracts could also help remove dead skin tissue.|
|Elderberry Extract (Sambucus nigra extract)||"Elderberry Salves" and ointments have again been used for centuries as a home remedy for Eczema, particularly in Europe. Like many home remedies (but not all), scientists have since narrowed down why Elderberry extract is so effective. The tannins and viburnic acid in elderberries provide its soothing properties.|
|Raw Coconut Oil||Raw Coconut Oil is definitely not something we discovered as a way of helping soothe eczema. It is good, but on its own a bit greasy and uncomfortable. In a cream it is perfect. It is the Medium Chain Fatty Acids that give Raw Coconut Oil its soothing properties.|
|Calendula Flower Extract||We believe a cream needs more than just Calendula. So we use a special concentrated extract of Calndula Flower in combination with all the other soothing actives.|
|Centella Asiatica Extract||
Centella Asiatica has been used traditionally for skin conditions and is an essential part of our original eczema cream.
|Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate||If you haven't heard of the benefits of Aloe Vera on skin soothing than you must be new to all of this. Aloe is a beautiful plant that brings relief to inflamed skin. In order to get all the benefits of Aloe when there is only so much room in our cream, we have use a very concentrated form of the juice.|
|Bisabolol (German Chamomile Essential Oil)||We love German Chamomile for soothing irritated skin. We have used it in the original Eczema Balm for years. The problem we have is that we have more actives in our new Eczema Balm, so there is less room. We could just add a token amount, but we feel our cream really needs a lot to be most effective. To solve this problem we are using Bisabolol which is the concentrated form of German Chamomile. A bit more expensive, but worth it.|
|Sweet Almond Oil||Sweet Almond Oil is one of the best oils to calm skin due to its fatty acid profile. Incidentally, people and children with nut allergies are usually allergic to the protein in some nuts, not the oils. So Sweet Almond Oil should be fine for people with allergies. However we do also have the Nut Oil Free Soothing Cream. (All natural products should be patch tested for allergies of course).|
|Olive Oil||Another very moisturising oil. It would be "too much" by itself, but as part of an emulsion it gives a boost to its moisturusing abaility.|
|Olive Squalane||One of our favourite moisturising oils. As every Eczema and Psoriasis suffere knows, irritated skin gets very dry. Squalane is one of the major parts of the skin's own oils. It just so happens that it can also be extracted from Olives. Since Olive squalene's composition is very similar to human sebum, it can penetrate our skin very quickly to help our skin to fight dryness|
|Water and Emulsifying Wax||If we used only oils and actives, the cream would feel hot on the skin as the oils coat the skin and it becomes an occlusive. By making this cream with water, the cream penetrates the skin better, is more moisturising, and also feels more soothing and cooling.|
|Natural Vitamin E (D-Alpha-Tocopherol)||We use natural Vitamin E in our cream. This helps to hydrate the skin as well as keeping the cream from going rancid.|
|Piroctone Olamine||It is very important creams for broken skin are properly preserved. Piroctone Olamine has an anti-yeast and anti-bacterial property for the cream so we use this ingredient to keep the cream stable so as not to infect broken skin.|
|Allantoin||Comfrey has long been associated with soft, healthy skin. Allantoin is a skin conditioner that has been purified from comfrey. Allantoin is thought to help maintain healthy skin by encouraging the removal of dead skin cells. it is also promoted for preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting in skin repair.|
|Hops Extract (Humulus Lupulus Extract)||As you can see from the rest of our ingredients, we try and use edible ingredients whereever we can. This is one of our innovations. (Note: Hops are not alcoholic. They are used to make beer, but they are not fermented in our creams but the fresh extract).|
