A sensitive issue, a natural solution

Thirty years ago, Margaret Weeds – Nottingham native, contemporary of one Anita Roddick, and qualified in herbal medicine and aromatherapy – was suffering with very, very sensitive skin. She wasn’t alone: eczema ran in her family and she and her children were all plagued with sore, dry, itchy patches. It being the late 80s, conventional cosmetics or prescription skincare were the only real option available. These were often packed with petroleum, artificial additives and other skin irritants which simply didn’t suit her allergy-prone skin.


Eczema is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by dry, itchy, and inflamed skin that can be painful and uncomfortable. While there is no cure for eczema, there are several treatments available that can help manage the symptoms. One of the most common treatments for eczema is the use of creams. 

Creams are a popular choice for eczema-prone skin because they are easy to apply and can provide immediate relief from itching and dryness. However, not all creams are created equal, and it is important to choose the right cream for your skin type and condition.

When choosing a cream for dry skin it is important to look for products that are specifically designed for sensitive skin. These creams should be free from fragrances, dyes, and other irritants that can trigger eczema flare-ups. They should also be hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic, meaning they won’t clog pores or cause acne.
