FORMERLY ECZEMA-AID CREAM
It may not look beautiful, but this cream is packed with an abundance of boreal botanicals and some of the finest the forest has to offer. Botanik is the German translation of 'botany', and I used this expertise to combine numerous amazing forest plants into this wonderful rich cream. Specifically formulated to relieve redness and itching due to chronic or extreme skin dryness, and to benefit skin suffering from symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. Wild sarsaparilla root targets discomfort and itching of the skin, while plantain, Labrador tea and alder help soothe and promote natural healing and regeneration. Juniper, Scandinavian-sourced boreal pine tar, and activated coconut shell charcoal provide anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory benefits that work to reduce redness, soothe and protect dry skin. Organic avocado, sweet almond and oat oils + shea butter are high in supportive essential fatty acids and vitamins to moisturize, strengthen, protect, and repair dry flaky skin.
This rich cream is vegan-friendly, pH balanced to prevent further damage to compromised skin, and spreads smoothly absorbing completely with a dry finish. Despite its appearance it is colorless on application, and does not leave an oily or greasy feel. Because this product contains natural pine tar, it has a very distinctive aroma similar to wood smoke. Not recommended if you are sensitive or allergic to this scent.
Directions for use: apply as required to affected skin, also great as a preventative and protective treatment. Not intended for use on the face or on broken skin or wounds.
