Serums to soothe, hydrate, nourish and repair the skin. Best to apply a few drops and massage into the skin before a cream to help seal in the actives. They give an extra boost of healing and hydration to the skin.
Pimples, Acne & Rosacea
Acne occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. It often causes whiteheads, blackheads or pimples, and usually appears on the face, forehead, chest, upper back and shoulders. Acne is most common among teenagers, though it affects people of all ages, and can cause huge emotional distress if left untreated.
Depending on its severity, acne can cause emotional distress and scar the skin. The earlier you start treatment, the lower your risk of such problems.
Four main factors that cause acne:
Excess oil production
Hair follicles clogged by oil and dead skin cells
Excess activity of a type of hormone (androgens)
The follicle wall may bulge and produce a whitehead. Or the plug may be open to the surface and darken, causing a blackhead. A blackhead may look like dirt stuck in pores. But actually the pore is congested with bacteria and oil, which turns brown when it's exposed to the air.
Pimples are raised red spots with a white center that develop when blocked hair follicles become inflamed or infected with bacteria. Blockages and inflammation that develop deep inside hair follicles produce cystlike lumps beneath the surface of your skin.
These products are suitable as a moisturiser for skin with pimples, acne and rosacea.
Moisturise, Hydrate & Repair
For great skin we recommend:
1. Clean skin with a gentle, hydrating cleanser.
2. Apply a few drops of the Serum that you prefer. Massage gently into the skin.
3. Apply a moisturiser to seal in the oils.
When you get a tan, that golden layer is actually damage to the top layer of your skin. Soaking up the sun's rays (UV A and UV B) speeds up the skin ageing and raises your risk of developing skin cancer. To prevent damage, a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher is recommended when going outdoors. Covering up, wearing a hat and avoiding those times when UV radiation is at it's peak (between 10am to 2pm) will also reduce your risk of getting burnt and developing skin cancer later on in life.
UV light damages fibres in your skin called elastin and collagen. When that happens your skin gets wrinkles and starts to sag. Over time, too much time in the sun can cause wrinkles, age spots, scaly patches (actinic keratosis) and skin cancer. UV radiation also suppresses your immune system so it's important to take steps to support your immune system and manage factors that may lower your immune system further such as stress.
Vitamin B3 taken orally or a topical cream helps reverse the DNA damage caused by the sun's radiation by providing cells with cellular energy for faster and more efficient DNA repair. Our Skin Radiance Lotion is perfect for using regularly.
If you use Efudix Cream to treat Actinic Keratosis, using our Wound Healing Ointment will help soothe the redness and inflammation after the treatment with the Efudix Cream.
You can add a boost of anti-oxidants, hydration and extra healing with our Amazing Serums. The Hemp Seed Oil & Manuka Serum is perfect to calm red, inflamed skin and help speed skin healing.

Eczema & Dermatitis
We use the natural healing properties of botanical extracts and natural ingredients to give you a product that will reduce redness and inflammation, soothe the skin, hydrate and moisturise dry, itchy skin. Ingredients are chosen for their anti-oxidant properties, healing, and nourishing actives. We do not to use too many ingredients in the base as we realise that there are many people who have allergies or intolerances for example to food-based products such as wheat (oatmeal), milk and nuts.
Eczema & dermatitis: The skin as a barrier.
Current management of eczema and atopic dermatitis include:
- the application of topical steroids.
- frequently moisturising or using an ointment such as Dermeze or Epaderm to create a barrier over the skin.
- using wet or dry wraps with Tubifast dressing.
- avoiding allergens in the environment which may include food such as egg and nuts and foods that may cause more inflammation such as dairy, wheat, gluten and sugar.
- bleach baths, and/or topical or oral antibiotics to decrease the amount of Staph. auerus on the skin.
- bathing with mineral salts.
