Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is an inflammatory skin disease. It’s a result of both environmental factors and genetic factors, that presents as a generalised skin dryness, itchiness and rash.

Our own unique and specially created Ora Mamaku extract rapidly repairs the damage to the skin barrier, preventing the TEWL (transepidermal water loss). This is very important for the management of eczema. The soothing moisturiser works by filling in the gaps between skin cells, this helps improve the skin barrier. The traditional Maori topical use of anti inflammatory properties from the Ora Mamaku Extract assist in calming and soothing.
