What is Eczema?

Eczema is basically a generic term for skin dermatitis that is either allergic or irritant in nature.  It causes a dry, rash-like irritation that can eventually even lead to painful sores and blisters.

Clinically, it can look like inflamed red skin, dark-colored patches, scaly, rough, or leathery skin, or oozing crusting skin. There are different types of eczema, but the most common type is atopic dermatitis or 'classic' eczema that usually presents with pink, itchy, dry, or inflamed skin.

What causes Eczema?

While the cause of eczema is not entirely known, leading skin specialists believe a genetic predisposition of breakage in the skin barrier followed by exposure to allergens or irritants, In other words, credited to a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune triggers. Normally, the skin would shield against allergens and bacteria, but with eczema, that protective barrier dries out, leaving you open to irritants in the environment. Even exposure to everyday items—including detergent, fragrance, chemical-based cosmetics, clothing dye, dust, pet dander, and more—could trigger eczema symptoms.

Sven's Island remedy for 'Eczema'

When selecting skin-care products to treat Eczema, choose moisturisers that have a high oil content over water content, since this will draw more water into the skin and reduce water loss. Ointments usually have the highest oil content over lotions and creams, so they don't generally burn when they're applied to sensitive skin and are very good at sealing in moisture. Our Miracle Manuka skin repair ointment has been scientifically developed to relieve and treat eczema-related conditions.

Miracle Manuka- Skin Repair Ointment

Miracle Manuka is a 100% natural, therapeutic skin repair ointment that contains organic Manuka leaf oil sustainably grown and wild-harvested from our island farm in New Zealand. This powerful ingredient displays strong healing properties and has been scientifically proven to kill 99.99% of bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus, an antibiotic-resistant bacteria. This super enriched formula also contains organic Marshmallow root extract that acts as a potent anti-inflammatory to help soothe and relieve dry, itchy, and inflamed skin, symptoms often associated with eczema, psoriasis, and contact dermatitis. 

It is recommended that you seek professional medical advice when dealing with Eczema. Always use as directed and if symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner
