Irritable Skin Balm with Marshmallow, Elderberry and more

Add to milk pail

New Irritable Skin Balm. With Marshmallow, Elderberry and More. 120g

We set out to boost up our original ISB by making it thicker using raw Coconut Oil and adding a concentrated Marshamallow Root Extract and Elderberry Extract. We loved it but some people wanted us to keep the original as it suited them better. Rather than upset too many people, we now have 2 types. Things rarely turn out the way we expect them to at MooGoo. 

Which version to choose? Most new customers try this version but feel free to check through the ingredients. All the reasons why we choose each ingredient is listed there. 





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. For eczema prone skin and babies, patch test all natural products first just as you would when introducing new natural foods.


MooGoo is proud to show all the ingredients on our website, not only the pretty sounding ones.



Active Ingredient Description
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 for 2000 years for various uses. Marshmallow extract contains flavanoids for soothing the skin.
Elderberry Extract (Sambucus nigra extract) The tannins and viburnic acid in elderberries provide its soothing properties. 
Raw Coconut Oil Raw Coconut Oil is definitely not something we discovered and naturpaths have been suggesting it for skin for a long time. 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.
Centella Asiatica Extract Centella Asiatica is an essential part of our original cream and we have kept in our or newer version. 


Other Ingredients.

Excipient Ingredient Description
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 sensitive 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. (100:1)
Bisabolol (German Chamomile Essential Oil) We love German Chamomile for soothing skin The problem we have is that we have more extracts in our new cream,  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. 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  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 
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).

There are lots more reviews about our creams here. Some are below.



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 skin probelms and for all her life her mother has tried one product after another and the girl put up it 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. 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,

Hi MooGoo

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 ISB is an awesome product. 

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.

Your Satisfied Customer, Vu An

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... 
Melissa & Zane

Hi MooGoo

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.  My 2yo sons skin has so improved,  no signs that he had a problelm 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.

Kind regards,
Joanne, NSW

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.
