    What is Eczema

    Eczema is more common than you may think. Many people have it and are looking for treatment solutions that help to manage and reduce symptoms. It’s a skin condition and type of dermatitis and skin problem that causes dryness, redness, and itchiness. As you may assume, it can be extremely frustrating and irritating when it’s at its peak. Many elements may cause your skin to overreact and flare up, such as stress, skincare products, detergents, and animals, to name a few. Knowing what will trigger your eczema is a considerable advantage. It is vital to stay away from known triggers that can be detrimental to your skin. The cause of inflammation varies from person to person, but some common triggers are:

    • Allergies (foods, animals, environment)
    • Stress (very common)
    • Alcohol
    • Smoking
    • Poor diet
    • Not drinking enough water
    • Sleep (Sleep reduces inflammation throughout the body)
    • Body overheating

    It’s good to point out that psoriasis is often confused with eczema. Although they have some similarities, they are different skin conditions. You can read more about the difference between the two conditions here.

    In order to determine which foods or environmental factors can be triggers - Grahams Natural have developed a trigger tracker for you to monitor your day and how your skin responds to specific factors.

    However, it’s not contagious and is solely cosmetic as long as you’re not always itching your skin and making it worse. While eczema doesn’t spread from person to person, it can spread to various parts of the body (for example, the face, cheeks, and the neck, wrist, knees, and elbows). Scratching the skin can make eczema worse. The challenging part is that eczema can cause you to want to itch and scratch your skin, but this can lead to more problems. Therefore, you need to use eczema cream and an eczema treatment that actually works.

    Symptoms & Types of Eczema

    You may be wondering if what you’re dealing with is eczema or not. Be on the lookout for a few of the most common symptoms so you can address them accordingly.

    • Redness
    • Hives
    • Itchy skin
    • Dry skin
    • Cracking
    • Blisters

    The appearance of eczema can vary from mild forms, when skin looks dry and flaky, to severe forms, when skin can be extremely irritated and red. The most severe types of eczema can make your skin crack and ooze. Other times, it will feel itchy, and scratching leads to a red rash or leathery skin.

    The other tricky part is that there are a few different types of eczema, which can make it harder to get under control since they vary in symptoms and treatment options. How long your eczema lasts depends on the type of eczema and its response to treatment. A couple of the most common types of eczema include:

    Atopic eczema

    Atopic eczema is the most common type of eczema, and is an allergic disorder which is usually hereditary. This is typical for people whose other family members may have other health issues like asthma and hay fever. In most cases, it comes in the form of a rash that leads to intense itching, especially in the ‘hot’ areas of the body such as behind the knees, elbows, neck, chest, and inner thighs.

    Xerotic eczema

    Xerotic eczema is commonly found in individuals with extreme cases of dry skin, also known as winter’s itch. During the winter period, patients suffering from xerotic eczema can experience heightened symptoms, with eczema usually affecting the core area, legs, and arms.

    Contact dermatitis

    Contact dermatitis is another form of eczema, which is triggered when someone comes into contact with a substance they are allergic to or sensitive to. Common irritants include chemical based soaps, detergents, and washing cleaners. This is one of the easier forms of eczema to treat, as the individual can stop using the products they know to cause irritation or allergic reaction.

    Seborrhoeic dermatitis

    Seborrhoeic dermatitis is another common type of eczema, which appears as red, scaly, itchy, and inflamed skin. It is also common amongst babies, which is known as cradle cap. This particular type of eczema is often associated with dandruff, peeling, or flaking of the scalp.

    Apply eczema creams or moisturizer daily will help to reduce inflammation of eczema

    What causes Eczema?

    Although the cause of eczema remains unknown, it has been widely linked to internal and external triggers. These triggers include:


    • A family history of eczema, asthma or hay fever (the strongest predictor): if both parents have eczema, there is up to 80 per cent chance that their children may also develop eczema
    • Some foods and alcohol: dairy and wheat products, citrus fruits, eggs, nuts, seafood, chemical food additives, preservatives and colourings
    • Stress


    • Irritants: tobacco smoke, chemicals, weather (hot and humid or cold and dry conditions) and air conditioning or overheating
    • Allergens : house dust mites, moulds, grasses, plant pollens, foods, pets and clothing, soaps, shampoos and washing

    Who can suffer from eczema?

    Eczema is considered a chronic health problems that can affect individuals of all ages but has become common in:

    • Infantile eczema occurs in around 20% of children under two years of age, and usually starts in the first six months of life. Infantile eczema usually improves significantly between the ages of two to five years.
    • Childhood eczema may follow infantile eczema, or start from two to four years of age. Rashes and dryness are usually found in the creases of the elbows, behind the knees, across the ankles and may also involve the face, ears and neck. This form of eczema usually improves with age.
    • Adult eczemais similar to that of older children with areas of very dry, itchy, reddened skin at the elbow creases, wrists, neck, ankles and behind the knees. It can cause rough, hard and thickened skin, which may also have weeping areas. Although the condition tends to improve in middle life, and is unusual in the elderly, it can still occur.


    Treating Your Eczema

    You can keep your eczema under control better when you get in a proper moisturising routine daily. It’ll help you to avoid problems that arise with dry skin. It’s best if you moisturise your skin right after a shower or a bath when the skin’s pores are raw and open. Dry skin can cause even more problems so be sure to make moisturising your skin a top priority.

    Get in a routine so that you can keep up with your good habits and heal your skin more quickly. There’s an easy two-step eczema skincare routine that you can follow to help you achieve this goal. Our Natural C+ Eczema Cream used in conjunction with our Body & Bath oil is a powerful combination.

    Step 1: Add Grahams Body & Bath Oil to your bath or shower. Our Body & Bath Oil is formulated with natural olive, emu, Vitamin E, and Manuka Oil to help nourish and hydrate the skin. As this product is 100% oil-based, it provides essential hydration to the skin that common skin problems such as eczema strip through the irritation caused.

    Step 2: Nourish your skin with Grahams C+ Eczema Cream. Our C+ Eczema & Dermatitis Cream contains clinically proven ingredients that aim to reduce redness and inflammation on the skin. Our cream works to calm the skin with the ‘oil-in-water’ formula providing a cool, soothing feel to relieve the itching and pain commonly caused by eczema.

    For a severe outbreak, apply the natural eczema cream and then wrap a wet bandage around the area to keep it moist.

    What you don’t want to do is avoid the situation or your symptoms and live in discomfort. Several complications can occur when eczema is left untreated. These can include neurodermatitis, eye complications, and skin infections. Eye complications and neurodermatitis can cause permanent damage to the body. Instead, it’s in your best interest to find practical and helpful ways to treat your eczema properly. You’ll be a much happier person for it, and your skin will look lovely again in no time.

    The downside is that there isn’t a cure for eczema. However, there’s the Best Eczema cream that will allow you to manage your condition and calm the inflammation and reduce your itching. The reason the C+ Eczema cream is the best eczema treatment for 2020 is because of its natural and powerful ingredients. The reality is that many alternatives out there contain chemicals and ingredients that are harmful to your overall health. You may be, in fact, creating other problems and issues that you’ll have to deal with later on if you choose a product that is damaging to your health and well-being. Some of the side effects that may arise are:

    • Increased skin sensitivity
    • Thinner skin (very easily bruised)
    • High blood pressure
    • Suppressed hormone production
    • Weight gain
    • Pimples
    • Cushing syndrome

    The chemical products such as creams or oils contain steroids which only suppress the eczema symptoms temporarily. The toxins from the body simply get concealed for a certain time period and then may come back even stronger. At Grahams Natural, we believe in treating eczema with a natural approach instead. Our products are made with all-natural ingredients which make them safe to use. You’ll find that they quickly hydrate your skin, treat the inflammation, and treat the infection.

    Natural Ingredients

    Using natural skincare products will transform your skin into its healthiest and most radiant self. Grahams Natural C+ Eczema Cream contains clinically proven ingredients that aim to reduce redness and inflammation of the skin. People suffering from eczema and dermatitis would understand that once you start scratching, it’s hard to stop. Continuing to scratch will cause infection and bacteria to spread, while also worsening the skin condition.

    Our eczema cream works to calm the skin, control the spread of bacteria, and hydrate the skin. We have created an ‘oil-in-water’ formula, which means it provides a cool, soothing feel to relieve itching and pain. Suitable for all ages, our Natural C+ Eczema Cream is a must-have for all eczema sufferers.

    Our C+ Eczema Cream is made from powerful natural ingredients, including Manuka Honey, Calendula, Gotu Kola, Jojoba seed oil, and Sea Buckthorn oil. Manuka Honey draws out vital moisture into the skin, hydrating and nourishing it while restoring it to its natural glow. Manuka Honey acts as an excellent anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agent for your skin. The ingredient provides essential anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to eczema-prone skin to help relieve the itchy and pain that is associated with eczema. Manuka Honey also provides the skin with vital moisture, providing hydration for over six hours to the affected areas. Calendula contains incredibly powerful properties that aid in skin health. These properties include anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial, and antifungal compounds. This allows Calendula to be useful in the healing of wounds or open/infected skin and to soothe irritated skin such as eczema.

    It’s these natural ingredients that we know will help you address your eczema irritation and keep your skin looking flawless. For best results, apply Grahams Natural C+ Eczema Cream as often as required to keep the affected area moist (two-three times per day). Use a small amount spread thinly over your skin.

    The benefits of using our natural product are as follows:

    • Anti-inflammatory: Calms and reduces inflammation with powerful anti-inflammatory herbs
    • Antibacterial: Active Manuka Honey helps to control bacteria on the skin, naturally
    • Hydration: Moisturising ingredients to hydrate dry and irritated skin clinically tested for six hours of hydration

    It’s a wise idea to use our natural products in combination with living a healthy lifestyle. For example, there are natural home remedies to help soothe eczema so that you can keep it under control. Most importantly, using the right lotion or cream is essential for combating the dreaded itch. Natural skin treatment products such as eczema creams and body oils that are derived from natural resources will be one of the best ways to keep your skin vibrant and safe from harmful side effects.

    Rosacea Cream

    "I've never done this for a product before but I just had to let you know your rosacea cream has changed my life...I was so depressed about having tried all the moisturisers on the market and they made my skin worse...I ended up not using any for two years....still having dry, red skin. Your cream has done wonders for my skin and self esteem, I can find so much more joy in my day without this worry. Bottom of my heart thank you so much you legends"

    Thank you!

    "Your C+ cream has had unbelievably great effect on my skin issues and now my children’s, so congratulations to your company for putting together a world class product... that truly works."

    Amazing products

    "Hi Geoff Thank you for these amazing products. They have had a huge impact on two of my favourite guys. My husband has suffered from psoriasis since childhood. In the last 3 days this product had eased the severity of the current breakout significantly. This evening I had to remind him to use the cream for a second time today. He had forgotten all about the itching. Today is the first time in months that my German Shepherd Dyson has not once bitten the skin on his back. Yesterday I doused him in the derma cream because it was too uncomfortable for him to allow me to look through the fur and find the sore spots. Today he let me go through the fur and I was able to treat a couple of hot spots. He’s spent a cold Melbourne day lazing comfortably in front of the fire with none of the usual discomfort he experiences. I have now ordered your diabetes product for my dad. Thank you again "

    Thank you!

    "Hi Geoff, thank you for your email. It's nice to hear back from people we buy from. I do have eczema but it is under control. The reason I started using your shampoo and conditioner is because my scalp had a terrible outbreak of a serious flaky scalp and extremely itchy. None of the usual treatments were working this time. When I had an outbreak before the Dr prescribed Exorex but it is no longer available here. I saw something about your products on TV a while ago so looked at your website. It sounded very good so I thought I would give the shampoo a try. I have to say that it did help almost immediately, within a couple of days the terrible itching stopped and gradually the flakiness subsided. I have been using it now for a few months and I am very happy with it. Together with the conditioner my scalp is very good and my hair feels lovely and soft, shiny and silky. I have very fine hair. There is still a tiny bit of flakiness, like fine dandruff but nothing to worry about. As you would probably know from experience with people that an extremely itchy and irritated scalp is very annoying and embarrassing as you keep having to touch your scalp because of the irritation. I am a few years above 60 and have had eczema all my life but right now I am very happy with my skin. I ordered the bath oil this time as well so I'll use that after my shower. Thank you for creating this product and I'm sure it helps many people of all ages. "

    Scalp relief!

    "I just want to tell you about my experience with your products. I have been suffering an itchy scalp for years, spent a fortune on expensive shampoo but still had an irritated scalp. Each year I would get a breakout of cracked skin at the back of my head, weeping and awful. My daughter bought the dermatitis cream, I was itchy and irritated I got a bit off her and rubbed it into my scalp. I left it overnight and then washed my hair with my usual shampoo. The result was amazing. The irritation settled by about 95%. This got me interested so I purchased the shampoo and conditioner which I used this morning. I have had about 80% reduction in flaking and I’m amazed. I do not usually write about products, but to not constantly scratch at my head is wonderful. "

    Eczema cream relief

    "Good Afternoon, Thank you for your email. I have been suffering eczema on my chest, near my neck since recovering from a spider bite in November last year. Your cream has stopped flare ups straight away and has been a life saver on my personal image. Although there is some scarring on my skin from the bite, the cream itself has stopped anything else from being damaged. I honestly can't thank you enough. Also the lip balm is so good! "

    The Magic Cream

    "When I was young, I was listed in NZ’s medical journals as the most allergic person in the country. My entire body from feet to face was caked in unsightly scabs from eczema. At night, socks were tied to my hands in an effort to stop me scratching in my sleep. Each morning, my limbs and buttocks would be stuck to the schemers with dried blood. Life was hell and the other kids shunned me. I was a scarred, bleeding, freak with deep weeping wounds. I’m now 52 and have raised two kids of my own. We have been using Graham’s eczema cream since we discovered it in 2005.m and in our circles we refer to it as ‘The Magic Cream’. Over the years, I have bought literally hundreds of tubes to give to total strangers who I see suffering as I did. I then check on them two weeks later and witness the pure joy of seeing a person free from a totally treatable ailment. I have not seen any other product so what this can do. I’ve spoken with Geoff Graham personally a couple of times to thank him for the life-changing product he has created. He wouldn’t recall those phone calls as I have never met him personally; I’m just a devoted customer who is happy that this is a natural product that WORKS and is home grown. What few people know is that the company’s sunscreen is also coral reef friendly. That means you can wear it and not kill the lungs of the sea; they next great export for Graham’s if you ask me! Thank you everyone at Graham’s for making these products and helping people like my children and myself live normal lives. "

    Psoriasis relief

    "Hello! I am originally come from a small island in the Indian ocean named Mauritius. When I migrated from Mauritius to Australia, all of a sudden I developed Psoriasis on the sole of my feet. My doctor said it could be stress but I know my moms family has a long history of skin problems. No matter what I would do or use, impossible to get it under control. I came across your product a year ago on the Chemist Warehouse shelf. We were in Knox City Shopping Centre. The instructions and label were so clear that I bought one for a trial. and I must say that the Psoriasis Cream works perfectly; it's like a dream.. My sole are now normal, no psoriasis but I do tend to keep applying in summer as well. I notice that with me, the summer is the worst but winter kind of dies it down. After using your product, my skin is back to its normal self and it's incredibly satisfying. I want to say a huge thank you. I just bought a couple of products online for trial. THANK YOU! "

    Rosacea relief

    "Hi Geoff, I bought your rosacea cream earlier in the month and I must let you know that after suffering with this condition for 30 years I have never had such amazing results!! I can’t wait ti tell my dermatologist about your excellent product. I don’t have psoriasis but my skin is getting more and more itchy as I get older. Thought I would try your cream for this. Would love to hear of some hints from you to manage this Many Thanks Angela "


    "I tried your shampoo for the first time today. It was the best experience I've had using a natural shampoo for the first time. Natural shampoos are either too heavy and oily and don't clean well or they leave my hair dry and full of static. Your shampoo is perfect and hasn't left me feeling itchy. I've become allergic to the shampoo I've been using for a few years so I'm hoping my dermatitis clears up. I have to wash my hair everyday so I wish you had bigger bulk sized bottles, making the cost cheaper and better for the environment due to less packaging. Regards. Janice"
