Studies have shown that topical vitamin B12 can successfully treat dermatitis in both adults and children. In one randomised, double-blind, placebo controlled clinical trial the results indicated “a significant superiority of vitamin B12 cream in comparison with placebo with regard to the reduction of the extent and severity of atopic dermatitis”. It also demonstrated “a continuously progressive beneficial treatment effect throughout the 8 week treatment phase. It can therefore be postulated that treatment beyond 8 weeks would result in further alleviation of signs to the point of complete remission.” (British Journal of Dermatology 2004; 150: 977-983).
We have formulated this natural treatment to contain Vitamin B12, Vitamin B3, B5 and E, shea butter, ceremides, hyaluronic acid and a host of other moisturisers.

(1) Tacrolimus Ointment – Tacrolimus is used in the treatment of eczema, particularly atopic dermatitis. Tacrolimus is not a steroid drug but an immunomodulator which inhibits the immune system from attacking normal skin cells. It is applied twice daily on any part of the body effected (except mucosa). It is very effective in patients where conventional treatments have not worked. An important advantage of tacrolimus is that unlike steroids, it does not cause skin thinning (atrophy), or other steroid related side-effects. More information is available on request.
(2) Clobetasol Ointment – Is a powerful steroidal antiinflammatory cream used to help control eczema.
