We use innovative barrier technology to create a cream with potent antioxidants that helps soothe, calm and protect the skin. Our Eczema Cream also contains natural moisturising factors to help rehydrate and restore normal, healthy skin structure and function, as well as emollient lipids to help to soften the skin.
Directions: Patch test before use. Apply Eczema Cream with Ceramides generously to unbroken skin, concentrating on areas affected by and susceptible to eczema flares, dryness and itchiness. Use as often as required to keep skin moist (2-3 times daily). Not suitable for large or open wounds. If symptoms persist, consult your healthcare practitioner.
What other MooGoo products do you recommend for irritable skin?
We recommend our Soothing MSM Moisturiser, which you can use in conjunction with our Eczema Cream. Apply the Eczema Cream on the patches of eczema and the Soothing MSM Moisturiser over the rest of your face and body for some extra TLC. Continue to use it in between flare-ups as your daily moisturiser, to help keep skin soothed, and hydrated. Remember, well-moisturised skin is less likely to become irritated.
What ingredients do you avoid when making a moisturiser?
There's lots of things you won't find in this cream (or any of our other products) because they were all formulated for family members and close friends. This includes Paraffin and Mineral Oil which derive from petroleum but are commonly found in commercial moisturisers like Sorbolene. We don’t think putting the stuff that goes into our cars on our skin is the healthiest thing we can do.
We also don’t use any synthetic preservatives such as Parabens and Phenoxyethanol, although they're pretty common too, including with a few brands that claim to be natural (you know who you are!). We avoid a lot of other things too, way too many to list here. We also don't use any useless, trendy ingredients like stem cells from Swiss apples or superpower jellyfish DNA, just natural, effective ingredients for healthy skin.
What does "Dermatologically Tested" mean?
You may have seen the term “Dermatologically Tested” on lots of products before, but did you know there’s not an actual definition or regulation for this term? Because that didn’t sit right with us, and because our aim is to make products for people with really sensitive skin, we decided to send a bunch of them off to be tested in an independent lab on 54 people who reported having sensitive skin. The results were given on a scale of 0 to 5 with 0 being no irritation or redness and 5 being a reaction. We’re happy to report that other than one person who had a reaction to the adhesive on the patch and another who found the patches painful to remove, all subjects reported 0 for redness and irritation for all the products we sent for testing.
