Hoping to help

I am hoping that I might be of some help. I don't
suffer from eczema, but I know plenty of people who do. I have always
loved growing and using herbs for all kinds of purposes and I did a lot of research on the properties of plants. I ended up making simple skin creams that used my three favorite herbs and discovered that friends with eczema found it very soothing and healing. I am not saying it's a cure, only that this particular blend seems to make a difference for people suffering from skin irritations including eczema. The herbs are Calendula, Heartsease
(viola tricolor) and Plantago (plantain).
I only recently decided to try and make a cream that I could sell on a larger scale and reach many more people suffering. I know there are a ton of options out there and my little cream may get lost in the fray,but I figure it's worth a try.
I make my creams and lotions using only natural ingredients. I firmly believe that the products available on store shelves have ingredients that make skin conditions worse. Imagine putting formaldehyde on your skin for instance? Never mind all the dermatologists out there giving people Cortisone despite all the side effects.
So...when I was looking for ingredients (besides my herbal trio) I chose only things that help soothe skin. Now I have 3 different creams (hand,body and face) and 2 solutions for cleansing, a bar for baths and a foaming face cleanser. I added the cleansing products because, once again, soaps are irritating to people with skin issues and they end up having to fight the effects of the soap as well as the inflammation.
I just launched a website for the products (I call them Ice) and you can see it here:
I hope this will help some of the people suffering out there!
