Zambesia Botanica was recommended to me by a friend for my sons ezcema. He has had a patch on his chest since he was about 8 weeks that I couldn't clear. Doctors simply said don't allow him bubble bath or soap & use aqueous cream. Still no joy. I bought a tub of cream which was quite expensive at £5.95 and applied it thinly twice a day. Within a week the ezcema had gone, and has not come back even with the reintroduction of bubble bath. It is completely natural, and although it looks a bit odd - it is the colour of mud works wonderfully.
Excellent for eczema. This was recommended to me by several people at once. It had an excellent write up in a national newspaper and my local pharmacist had seen the results on someone she knew who had terrible eczema. My son has had quite bad eczema since he was 8 weeks old, he's been treated homeopathically (see my opinion elsewhere!!) which has worked fantastically. However, I needed to put cream on him regularly and didn't like the idea of the hydrocortisones. I tried Zambesia Botanica on him and it really helped his skin. It's quite safe to use on children, smells a little peculiar when you first apply it but it doesn't linger. The cream itself is a light brown colour which does transfer itself onto clothing, but I can assure you it does wash off! I did use it for several weeks before we saw a marked difference, so you need to perservere with it, but it is worth it. Now my son is totally clear of eczema, but if it starts to flare up again I apply the cream and it nips it in the bud. It's not the cheapest cream around (a 250ml bottle is £19.95), but it is worth trying and you don't need much so it lasts quite a while.
