Product DescriptionNew Irritable Skin Balm.
With Marshmallow, Elderberry and More. 120g
Many people rely and trust our original Irritable Skin Balm 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 a product for Eczema and Psoriasis. We have included extra anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal actives within a thicker natural cream.
Which one is best for you or your child? Both should work well. Our original cream has proven itself over many years, our new version in theory should work even better. Perhaps read through the ingredients to make your choice.
Both versions of our cream are designed to help bring relief for:
- Eczema and Dermatitis.
- Infant Eczema.
- Seborrheic Dermatitis.
- Fungal and Yeast Based Skin Conditions
Some more information on Eczema and Psoriasis is contained in the videos below:
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).|

I just wanted to drop you a quick but heartfelt thank you for your wonderful product Moogoo Eczema and Psoriasis Balm. I have always been blessed with good skin but the last 4 years I have suffered terribly with Psoriasis all around my eyes. I have tried MANY products with no success and rely on cortisone cream and sticky heavy-duty moisturiser. Last weekend I was in so much pain and itching with my eyelids bleeding and the surrounding area looking like alligator skin and plaguing and flaking that I got up in the middle of the night and went driving for a 24 hour chemist. I found one but they didn't stock the cream that I had been researching to try next. They did, however stock Moogoo. The assistant assured me that she had been hearing of really good results with this brand. I was very skeptical but as the price was so reasonable I thought it was better than nothing.
No stinging! And it was so light that after a minute you couldn't even feel you had applied cream. My skin has returned to baby's bottom smoothness. My only disappointment was that I didn't take before and after photos to prove it. I've been singing your product's praises to everyone I know and searching your website for my next purchase. Maybe the Full Cream I think. Love your work!

Just wanted to let you know that I have had a real problem with eczema for about 10 years. I About 3 months ago I asked a local chemist to recommend an every day moisturiser that simply wouldn't exacerbate the problem and they put me onto your eczema balm and your every day moisturiser. I have had no recurrence since regularly using your products. This is very exciting!
Thanks so much.

Hello Moogoo. Thank you so much for the recent order you sent me. My son has suffered from eczema since he was 6 months old and at nearly 4 has never slept a full night due to all the itching. Your company was recommended to us by family who live in Melbourne and boy am I glad they did. Jake actually slept last night for the first time!!!!!! His skin is comfortable and he loves the eczema balm which you sent to me as a sample, I have just ordered lots and lots of it. Once again thankyou, thankyou.

Hello to the Moo Goo team
I just wanted to let you know how great your products are, which I know you already know! My mother underwent treatment earlier this year and I gave her several of your products to help maintain skin integrity and moisturisation.
I gave her the face cream with resveratrol, the full cream skin cream and the tingling honey lip balm. The lip balm totally prevented the usual and cracking often experienced with the particular she was on. (Slight soreness was experienced occasionally, but no cracking!) As well, the rest of her skin integrity was maintained. She has made a full recovery thankfully, and remains a MooGoo convert. In fact, her skin glows with health and moogoo!
Also my teenage daughter began to develop acne so I purchased your anti acne face wash. It has been wonderful. Within a , no more pimples! She was ecstatic and uses it religiously every evening.
Thank you for a great product line.

Thankyou for your message and yes you have answered my email and sent samples which I received gratefully and so have many of my patients. The chemist next door to our practice has now stocked the products and all of my patients are buying them and all have never felt better. I have a 16 year old girl who had eczema and for all her life her mother has tried one product after another and the girl put up with itching, bleeding and infection at times, she became isolated and dropped out of school because of stress and bullying because of her condition. Her mother came in this week with her daughter who for the first time is free of itch and the angry rash and has only some pale pink marks on her skin. She is glowing and happy and her mother could not thank me and hug me enough- tears and many tears have been shed in happiness. So I send the hugs to you. This is only one story of many happy patients and the chemist is having to make bigger orders to keep up with the demand.
Thank you from me and all who I care for,
You always take a bit of a punt when you order stuff online. You wonder if the product will come, if it will be in good condition and finally if it does really work. I took my chances and I can proudly say the Eczema and Psoriasis cream is an awesome product. My skin is healing really quickly.
Everything about your company just makes sense. Where do we start. Most Importantly your products work, you delivered on time, you gave me a small bonus of MSM Cream with a smile drawn on the invoice (everyone loves bonuses), you label your ingredients clearly (active, excipient and preservative) and have a memorable funky company name. You guys just keep getting tick swooshes in the right places.
I truly respect how your company is doing the best thing for its customers.
You are a great Australian Company, keep it up.

My baby son Zane has suffered from eczema since he was around 8 weeks old. He is 9 months old now and we have finally discovered Moogoo! We've tried so many other organic products but Moogoo is our solution! I've just received my second order of the eczema and psoriasis cream and msm smoothing cream. I've been using both products on his skin 3-4 times per day and we finally have the eczema under control. Thank you for such a great product! Zane loves it too... He attacked the container while I was getting his dinner ready. I've attached the photo so you can see for yourself, it certainly made us all laugh at home.
Thank you again...

Here’s our MooGoo fan (Sandy, NSW)
I'm so sorry for only getting back to you now. I just wanted to let you know that we have had great success using the moogoo products on my childrens eczema! My 2yo sons no signs that he evehas improveded and his was quite bad, particularly behind his knees and around his ankles. My daughter's is still dry looking around her face, but she tends to forget to put the creams on, but the redness is gone, which is a huge improvement for her.I am so happy to have found that my local chemist stocks a lot of your products, so I bought some more of them from there. IThankyou again for sending on the samples, I really appreciate it, and I will continue to use your products for my children, as they haven't reacted to them at all.
I actually just wanted to say that I have suffered from very dry skin especially on my face and head and I started using the Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner and it cleared my dry skin in a couple of washes. I recently ran out and had forgotten to get more and I used a normal shampoo and within a couple of days my dry scalp was back. Ive actually recommended Moo Goo to lots of people because it has done such a fantastic job for super sensitive skin. Im also really excited to see the skin care range. Im quite allergic to normal skin care products and havnt used any for about 3 months so when I go to buy my shampoo I will also be buying the skin care products. Thanks again for such great products.
Hi all you hard working MooGoo people [Ed:True that!]
For over 10 years my husband Terry has suffered from scalp problems, which was both embarrassing and very itchy.
We received our first order a few days ago of Eczema and Psoriasis Balm which Terry used immediately. No itching, redness or unsightly 'snow storm' on his collar. He is also using the Milk Shampoo and his hair feels wonderful. I decided to try the shampoo this morning and my scalp felt soothed and my hair, healthy.
Thank you for a very well researched product and for explaining the difference between "active ingredients" and "excipient ingredients". We are happy at MooGoo being Proudly Australian and is made using natural ingredients.
Thank you also for the sample of moisturising cream which was gratefully received. We are coming to Queensland for 2 weeks within the next few days so maybe we will be able to visit you and load up with more unbelievable but true products.
Ann and Terry, Victoria
