  1. I am a female who has had exema all my life and now it is starting to effect my eyelids and under my eyes and on my face, can i use your cream on my eyes and face

    Our Hypo-Allergenic Face and Body Balm is especially suitable for the eyelids. It immediately soothes the rough tight feeling and does not sting. It simply feels very soothing. It is rich and protective and is best applied to the whole face at bedtime. You should get almost immediate improvement around the eyes. ...MORE
  2. My two year old son sufferes from excema and during his flare ups he gets it all over his body, however more recently it presents itself all over his eyes and neck. The itching affects his sleep as well. For the past 2 months his eyes have been affected almost daily and I don't know how best to treat it.

    Our hypoallergenic face and body balm is ideal for the eyelids and is non-toxic so can be used on the face or even as a lipbalm. There is no problem or discomfort if some is rubbed in the eye. Its barrier effect will protect against any irritants he may get on his skin and accidentally rub onto his eyelids so if an allergy is causing it the physical barrier is forms will protect against that also. ...MORE
  3. My son seems to get a very red eyelid on his left eye, and red dots around it. It may be from him rubbing it with a fist he's been sucking and the saliva making it worse Do you have a product that could be good for this?

  4. My eyelids get quite red and sometimes have a little crust on them. My eyelids get redder in windy or cold conditions and can be quite irritable. I wondered if you could recommend any of your products for my problem.

    The hypoallergenic face and body balm is ideal for the eye area for this problem. Apply as needed and you should not experience any sensitivity to the product. An artificial tear drop for your eyes on windy and could days may help too. ...MORE
  5. I've already bought a jar of Lavender balm for my one year old boy. It works pretty good on his face. But now my six years old girl also has eczema problems around her eyes. I wonder whether I can apply Lavender balm on these areas. Will it be a problem if she rubs the Lavender balm into eyes? Since it seems to be quite itchy, do you think the Lavender balm can help. Or, I should buy the hypoallergenic Balm which is perfectly for eyelids as suggested by your website. Please advice.

    The Lavender Balm is quite suitable for use around the eyes. The reason the lavender is not in the Hypoallergenic balm is for people with severe allergies to perfumes. You should have excellent result with the Lavender Balm applied about 2-3 times a day and it can even safely be applied to the eyelids. It is no problem if rubbed into the eyes and will not sting. 27/03/09


TESTIMONIAL

Hi David

While visiting London in July this year I developed shocking dermatitis and /or blephitis on both eyelids. I had never had this condition before - the itching was unbearable and the eyes were covered in scaley dry spots. After a number of doctors visits and trying a range of products with little effect, I finally discovered your website in August and purchased the Hypo-allergenic Cream.

It is now 4 weeks on, and the problem has almost cleared. The thing to remember is not to expect results overnight - persist. The cream certainly reduced the itching immediately but progress was slow and I did have to use a minute amount of cortisone cream intermittently . I now only apply your cream at night - lightly on each eyelid and under the eye.

If I want to use eyeliner once problem in hand, I put on a thin layer of the cream, pat over lightly with pressed powder, and then apply the eye shadow - LIGHTLY. No aggravation occurs as it would if I put it directly on the skin.

I hope this info helps some other sufferer.

Hi MH,

Our Hypo-Allergenic Face and Body Balm is especially suitable for the eyelids. It immediately soothes the rough tight feeling and does not sting. It simply feels very soothing. If you skin is dry the balm is excellent for the face. It is rich and protective and is best applied to the whole face at bedtime. As for the eyelids, apply it in the morning as well.

You should get almost immediate improvement around the eyes. The product is completely safe and can be used long term. A 100g jar would last you several months.

Let me know the results you get. I think you will be very pleased at how well it works especially around the eyes.

Kind Regards,
David Hosking.

Dear David,

I was searching the internet and came across your site and the products you offer. I was impressed by what I read and am interested specifically in the hypoallergenic balm that can help with excema on the eyelids. My two year old son sufferes from excema and during his flare ups he gets it all over his body, however more recently it presents itself all over his eyes and neck. I can live with the excema on his legs and hands but when it's in his eyes, he looks very sick and draws unnecessary attention from other people/parents. The itching affects his sleep as well.

For the past 2 months his eyes have been affected almost daily and I don't know how best to treat it.

Can you advise what is causing this and what is the treatment I could use. Safety is the number one issue on my mind and therefore am not comfortable with some of the ointments that we have been prescribed.

Many thanks. Calgary, Canada


Hi,

Our hypoallergenic face and body balm is ideal for the eyelids and is non-toxic so can be used on the face or even as a lipbalm. It acts as a protectant and does not sting. There is no problem or discomfort if some is rubbed in the eye. Its barrier effect will protect against any irritants he may get on his skin and accidentally rub onto his eyelids so if an allergy is causing it the physical barrier is forms will protect against that also.

Very red eyelid on his left eye, and red dots around it

...I do have a question for you. My son seems to get a very red eyelid on his left eye, and red dots around it. It may be from him rubbing it with a fist he's been sucking and the saliva making it worse, I can't be sure. I've been putting some pure paw-paw ointment on it, but it doesn't seem to be doing much for it. Do you have a product that could be good for this?


Hi L, We have a hypoallergenic face and body balm which is ideal for dribble rash and can be used on the eyelids too.


Eyelids that get redder in windy or cold conditions

I wondered if you could recommend any of your products for my problem. My eyelids get quite red and sometimes have a little crust on them. My eyelids get redder in windy or cold conditions and can be quite irritable. They seem sensitive if i accidently get suncream etc in them I have had my eyes checked out and the doctor seemed to think it could be blepharitis I was browsing the internet for any treatment and came accross your website for the first time.

Hi,

The hypoallergenic face and body balm is ideal for the eye area for this problem. Apply as needed and you should not experience any sensitivity to the product. An artificial tear drop for your eyes on windy and could days may help too. Doctor probably has suggested that, If not, drop into your pharmacist and get a suitable one. Although the problem is on the eyelids the drops may help. However, Try one treatment at a time to see what helps. I.E. Try the hypo balm first then if needed after 2 weeks you may find no further treatment is needed. 12/1/2008


Introducing David's Hypoallergenic Face and Body Balm

We formulated the lavender -free balm (removed the lavender oil) for infants, babys and children with hypersensitivities. The Hypoallergenic Balm should work precisely the same as our Lavender Balm product, although, of course, it does not come with the lovely smell and color of the Lavender oil.

The hypo allergenic product without lavender oil conforms to the guidelines of Sue Dengate ( see; http://www.fedupwithfoodadditives.info/) who is prominent in helping children with food additive sensitivities. These children also tend to have eczema and so the Hypoallergenic product without lavender was born after requests from a number of customers. Directions for use are exactly the same as for David's Soothing Lavender Face & Body Balm.
