We use the natural healing properties of botanical extracts and natural ingredients to give you a product that will help soothe inflamed skin, and hydrate and moisturise dry, itchy skin. Ingredients are chosen for their anti-oxidant properties and nourishing actives. We do not to use too many ingredients in the base as we realise that there are many people who have allergies or intolerances for example to food-based products such as wheat (oatmeal), milk and nuts.
Eczema & dermatitis: The skin as a barrier.
Our products that contain Manuka oil such as the Manuka Oil Balm, Wound Healing Ointment, Propolis Balm and Manuka Oil Cream, help to soothe the rash, hydrate the dry skin and support the healing of the skin barrier.
(Mild dermatitis flare-up: An example of using the Manuka Cream twice a day for 4 days with a Tubifast dressing over the affected area.)
The Wound Healing Ointment is great for dry, inflamed spots, but can be quite thick and heavy if used on areas such as the face. The Manuka Cream or Skin Radiance Lotion is better for larger areas and for areas such as the face. It is easily absorbed and can be used regularly. The Vitamin B3 (or Niacinamide) in the Skin Radiance Lotion is beneficial for healthy skin, but if you are allergic to it, stick with the Manuka Cream.
For those who are allergic to pollen or propolis, the Manuka Oil and Lavender Healing Balm is the balm to go for, as it helps with preventing moisture loss from the skin barrier, support skin healing and soothes redness. A balm is also best for skin that is angry, irritated, raw or broken as it does not have any alcohol, acids, parabens or perservativese that may irritate or sting the skin.
( Note: Bee venom in bee stings is different to Bee saliva and Bees wax in Propolis extract. You can not be allergic to bee saliva or beeswax if you are allergic to bee stings. Propolis contains plant pollen and resin, which may cause an allergic reaction. Test patch before use and discontinue if skin reaction occurs.)
Our Liquid Soap with Manuka Oil and Lavender has been formulated to be used a gentle, pH neutral soap-alternative. It can also be used as a shampoo and is useful for those with dermatitis on their scalp.
