Having had two kids who have occasionally suffered from mild eczema, I was interested to discover Salcura Natural Skin Therapy.
Salcura is a British Skincare Brand that creates natural formulations for problem skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, acne and sensitive skin.
|Salcura Bioskin Junior Bathtime Bath Milk – £9.99|
One of Salcura’s most popular ranges is the award-winning Bioskin Junior, which caters to dry skin conditions in children. In particular the range is designed for babies and children prone to eczema and psoriasis.
Bioskin Junior offers a range of products to form a skin therapy regime which uses only naturally active ingredients. The products are free from steroids, SLS, parabens, lanolin, phthalates, antibiotics and paraffin.
The products are designed to work with the skin to aid its own natural healing process and will also help sooth dermatitis, dry and itchy skin. We were invited to try some of the Bioskin Junior products.
We tried the two step system (Daily Nourishing Spray and Outbreak Rescue Cream) and the Bath Milk.
The bath milk is designed to cleanse, soften and soothe and has chamomile as the active ingredient. There is also a face & body wash and a shampoo. The product has quite a botanical, natural fragrance and is non greasy – helping to avoid dangerous slips in the bath. Salcura suggest using 2-3 capfuls of bathmilk per bath. We found the bathmilk gave a soothing, gentle bath with no harsh aromas and no greasy residue left to scrub off the tub.
|Salcura Bioskin Junior Daily Nourishing Spray – £9.99|
Eczema can damage the skin’s protective membrane. Traditional creams and emollients can help to manage this by creating an artificial barrier but the Bioskin Daily Nourishing Spray works differently.
Salcura says it penetrates deeply to nourish and support the growth of new cells, helping the skin to repair itself and rebuild its own protective membrane.
The nourishing spray is designed to be used on affected areas of skin twice a day. The spray can be used on the face too – just take care to avoid the eyes.
We found it to be a light, colourless spray which is easy to use, pleasantly fragranced and quickly absorbed.
The Daily Nourishing Spray is part of a two-step system. The spray is for regular maintenance when the skin is not flaring up. Its active ingredient is Sea Buckthorn, rich in Omegas.
|Salcura Bioskin Junior Outbreak Rescue Cream – £9.99|
The Outbreak Rescue Cream is designed to be used during flare-ups. It should be applied liberally to the skin as often as required and can also be used on the face. I tried it on a sore patch of skin I have on my hand and the cream did not sting, was very soothing and left a definite protective layer.
The active ingredient is Natural Volcanic Zeolite, said to be rich in rejuvenating minerals.
I was quite impressed by the Bioskin Junior products and like the fact that there are no harsh additives. The spray, in particular, is a great way of applying skincare to wriggly, grumpy little ones! Older children could even apply it themselves.
There are some brilliant customer reviews on the website too. If your child has eczema you tend to work your way through all the ‘usual suspects’ – Doublebase, Diprobase etc until you find one that works but the customer reports here are promising.
The Salcura Bioskin Junior products are available at www.salcuraskincare.com and have a 30-day money-back guarantee. Alternatively, you can find them at Boots and some wholefood shops.
