|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
||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 after the water is extracted.
|Bisabolol (German Chamomile Essential Oil)
||We love German Chamomile We are using Bisabolol which is the concentrated form of German Chamomile. A bit more expensive, but worth it.
|Sweet Almond Oil
|A very moistursing natural oil with a high fatty acid content.
||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.
||One of our favourite moisturising oils that is similar to human sebum.
|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.
||It is very important creams for broken skin are properly preserved and this is used for that purpose.
||Our skin conditioner.
|Hops Extract (Humulus Lupulus Extract)
|| This is one of our innovations. Hops Flowers are what was traditionally used to hep preserve beer. (Note: Hops are not alcoholic. They are used to make beer, but they are not fermented in our creams but the fresh extract).
