For those who suffer from red, scaly, dry, itchy, flaky, painful skin, relief sometimes feels unattainable. As someone who suffered from eczema as a child (and who has rare, but occasional outbreaks as an adult), I was desperately uncomfortable for many years. I was also embarrassed by the patches on my skin. My pediatrician prescribed a number of topical steroidal medications, but they were harsh and sometimes left me feeling worse than before I applied them. If only I knew then what I know now…
Combined, aloe vera and honey fight bacteria — especially staph and antibiotic resistant MRSA — and they also combat infections which are common to eczema, psoriasis, rosacea and other conditions that cause inflamed skin. Manuka honey is reported to be doubly effective as other honeys. Found only in New Zealand where bees produce honey using the blooms from the Manuka tree, this honey contains up to 100 times more methylglyoxal than the golden syrup in your honey bear. Research has shown that this enzyme is anti-microbial and helps a number of ailments, including eczema and psoriasis.
Aloe vera is famous for speeding the healing of wounds and skin infections. It also works to calm the inflammation that goes hand in hand with flare-ups of eczema and psoriasis. Aloe vera keeps the skin from losing moisture — and dryness is a symptom well known to those with flareups. It’s also a natural analgesic. It will help relief the discomfort caused by those inflamed scales. The powerhouse duo of aloe vera and Manuka honey work together to hydrate and protect the skin. Eczema and psoriasis sufferers know how important it is to keep the skin moisturized — and once it is, it’s vital to create a protective barrier. Not only do our aloe and honey create a plant-based shield for your skin, but we complement this formula with organic coconut oil and organic jojoba oil to soothe the skin, especially when a flare-up causes itchiness.
One great thing about our Amazing Aloe Vera Eczema & Psoriasis Cream with Manuka Honey is that it can be used on children’s skin as well as adults. It’s so gentle and soothing. I have used it on my own 5-month old’s skin after checking in with my pediatrician who gave it an enthusiastic thumbs up. I find it especially helpful after bath time or a dip in the kiddie pool when an infant’s skin can dry out quickly and become itchy and uncomfortable.
Aloe vera and Manuka honey are safe and gentle while they boost your body’s healing power. As effective as they are, they won’t cause uncomfortable side effects like chemical-filled products with unpronounceable ingredients. For those people with extreme cases of eczema and psoriasis which require stronger medication, this cream can help ease discomfort until you heal.
