Moogoo Eczema & Psoriasis Cream with Marshmallow, Elderberry and More 120g
However, we have kept researching how to further improve a product for Eczema and Psoriasis. We have included extra anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal actives within a thicker natural cream.
Which one is best for you or your child? Both should work well. Our original cream has proven itself over many years, our new version in theory should work even better. Perhaps read through the ingredients to make your choice.
Both versions of our cream are designed to help bring relief for:
- Eczema and Dermatitis.
- Infant Eczema.
- Seborrheic Dermatitis.
- Fungal and Yeast Based Skin Conditions
This balm can be followed by the MSM Soothing Cream moisturiser which is designed to keep easily irritated skin moist and supple.
Directions: Apply cream topically as required to keep skin moist and healthy. If symptoms persist, consult your health care practitioner. As with all natural products, patch test first to check for allergies.

|Marshamallow Root Extract. (Althaea officinalis)||No we aren't putting fluffy treats into our new Eczema Balm. Marshmallow is an African plant that has been used medicinally for around 2000 years. Marshmallow extract contains flavanoids, which contain anti-inflammatory properties.The extracts also induce phagocytosis, which is the process in which certain cells engulf bacteria and dead cell tissue. This is important to help inflamed skin.|
|Elderberry Extract (Sambucus nigra extract)||"Elderberry Salves" and ointments have again been used for centuries as a home remedy for Eczema, particularly in Europe. Like many home remedies (but not all), scientists have since narrowed down why Elderberry extract is so effective. The tannins and viburnic acid in elderberries provide its anti-inflammatory properties. The tannins and Undeclylenic Acid also helps prevent bacteria which can easily infect the broken skin of eczema.|
|Raw Coconut Oil||Raw Coconut Oil is definitely not something we discovered as a way of helping treat eczema. Ask virtually any naturopath and a lot of parents and most will talk about using Raw Coconut Oil for Eczema. It is good, but on its own a bit greasy and uncomfortable, especially for children. In a cream it is perfect. It is the Medium Chain Fatty Acids that give Raw Coconut Oil its healing and anti-bacterial properties.|
|Calendula Flower Extract||There are lots of companies who make a Calendula Cream. Although Calendula is great, a cream needs more than just Calendula in our opinion to work well. So we use a special concentrated extract of Calndula Flower in combination with all the other anti-inflammatory actives.|
|Centella Asiatica Extract||Centella Asiaitica has been shown to promote wound healing. That is what everyone wants with Eczema..."Just make it go ASAP"! We have use Centella Asiaitica in our original Eczema Balm for years with excellent results.|
|Aloe Vera Juice Concentrate||If you haven't heard of the benefits of Aloe Vera on skin soothing than you must be new to all of this. Aloe is a beautiful plant that brings relief to inflamed skin. In order to get all the benefits of Aloe when there is only so much room in our cream, we have use a very concentrated form of the juice.|
|Bisabolol (German Chamomile Essential Oil)||We love German Chamomile for soothing irritated skin. We have used it in the original Eczema Balm for years. The problem we have is that we have more actives in our new Eczema Balm, so there is less room. We could just add a token amount, but we feel our cream really needs a lot to be most effective. To solve this problem we are using Bisabolol which is the concentrated form of German Chamomile. A bit more expensive, but worth it.|
|Sweet Almond Oil||Sweet Almond Oil is one of the best oils for irritated skin due to its fatty acid profile. It is incredibly soothing. Incidentally, people and children with nut allergies are usually allergic to the protein in some nuts, not the oils. So Sweet Almond Oil should be fine for people with allergies. However we do also have the Nut Oil Free Soothing Cream. (All natural products should be patch tested for allergies of course).|
|Olive Oil||Another very moisturising oil. It would be "too much" by itself, but as part of an emulsion it gives a boost to its moisturusing abaility.|
|Olive Squalane||One of our favourite moisturising oils. As every Eczema and Psoriasis suffere knows, irritated skin gets very dry. Squalane is one of the major parts of the skin's own oils. It just so happens that it can also be extracted from Olives. Since Olive squalene's composition is very similar to human sebum, it can penetrate our skin very quickly to help our skin to fight dryness|
|Water and Emulsifying Wax||If we used only oils and actives, the cream would feel hot on the skin as the oils coat the skin and it becomes an occlusive. By making this cream with water, the cream penetrates the skin better, is more moisturising, and also feels more soothing and cool.|
|Natural Vitamin E (D-Alpha-Tocopherol)||We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms. Vitamin E has antioxidant action as well as free radical scavenger properties.|
|Piroctone Olamine||Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast and anti-bacterial ingredient. It is very important that a cream such as ours that is applied to broken skin is pure.|
|Allantoin||Comfrey Root has long been known as a healing plant. Allantoin was identified as the part of the plant that performed this function and it has since been synthesised to make it more concentrated and effective. The Allantoin we use is the pure ingredient. Allantoin has been termed a cell proliferant in texts such as the "United States Dispensatory". It is said to clean away dead tissue, hastening the growth of new healthy tissue. Allantoin has been also termed a counter irritant. Allantoin produces its desirable effects by promoting and speeding up the healthy, natural processes of the body. It helps the skin to help itself. It is also promoted as preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting skin repair.|
|Hops Extract (Humulus Lupulus Extract)||Who wants to be putting Parabens, Benzoates or formadehyde donours on children's skin? As you can see from the rest of our ingredients, we try and use edible ingredients whereever we can. This is one of our innovations. (Note: Hops are not alcoholic. They are used to make beer, but they are not fermented in our creams but the fresh extract).|
