    Antibacterial Skincare for Eczema

    • 2 min read

     Eczema as a skin condition causes the skin to become dry, itchy, flaky and scaly – leaving it open to bacteria in which can cause infection or further irritation.

    Many sufferers use a variety of steroid creams to reduce the dryness of the skin to further reduce the potential infection however steroids rarely contain natural antibacterial properties and can cause stripping of the skin when used excessively.

    Natural antibacterial properties mainly stem from ingredients such as Manuka Honey. Manuka Honey has long been one of the super ingredients due to its medicinal property and antibacterial activity.

    For many years Manuka Honey has been known for its ability to possess antimicrobial property as well as its wound healing activity. The healing element of Manuka honey stems from its antibacterial activity and its high viscosity which helps to provide a protective barrier to prevent infection. The significant antibacterial effects from Manuka Honey are related to the low pH level of the honey and its high sugar content that is enough to further hinder the growth of microbes (bacteria causing disease or fermentation). Manuka Honey, when applied to the skin, rapidly clears wound infection to facilitate the deep healing within the wound or open skin. In addition, Manuka Honey provides the skin with an essential form of hydration.

    Manuka honey is an excellent natural ingredient for those suffering with eczema. Due to its ability to heal the skin rapidly while emitting a deep healing to ensure the growth of the bacteria surrounding the eczema prone skin is hindered.

    Grahams Natural uses Manuka Honey in our C+ Eczema Cream for relief treatment of eczema and dermatitis. Our C+ Eczema Cream uses the natural antibacterial features that Manuka Honey emits to further provide antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to the eczema prone skin. In addition, the C+ Eczema Cream adds hydration and nourishment to the skin.

    Some improvement

    There has been some minor improvement to severe eczema on hands and arms. Decrease i n itchiness of the skin. Will keep persisting to see if more improvement.

    Fabulous product

    I bought Grahams Conditioner as a recommended replacement for a botanical product from a company that had ceased trading. It is a brilliant find as it is gentle and soothing on my itchy scalp and leaves my hair soft and manageable. My only concern is that despite being listed as a UK company it came all the way from Australia……not good for my carbon footprint! Hopefully I will be able to find some nearer to home soon.

    Only this works

    Soothes itchiness caused by sensitivity

    SO light and un-aggravating

    Normally with my eczema lotion feels so heavy and can cause me to itch more, it's like you can feel it too much on your skin but not this! The oil and the lotion are so light that I don't have to wait around for it to dry and I don't have to restrain myself from itching it off! It's great! I can just put it on and get dressed and get in bed no problem! I wish it was sold more conveniently in the US but it was so worth it I may just order again! 20/10

    Great product

    I'm ordering my second tube of this gel, as it worked so well on my German Shepherd's recent hot spot. She tolerated it well (it is clearly soothing), & it took the swelling and redness down almost straight away each time we applied. We did need to keep applying it regularly for about a week, as she had a very raw, swollen patch of skin. Alternating the gel with Derma Cream was very effective.
