Grahams Skincare Eczema Cream Review

As regular readers will know, Jack suffers quite badly with his eczema which hes currently seeing the dermatology nurse regarding. We are constantly on the look-out for different creams or washing detergents which won't aggravate Jack's skin anymore. I was amazed to discover that around 15-20% of school children are affected by eczema and also around 2-10% of adults. Dealing with the psychological and physical impact of eczema can be a little overwhelming with having red, chapped and sore skin which can be unsightly. 

Grahams Skincare is new to the UK but originates from Australia. 'Australia’s best-selling natural skincare range of top-to-toe treatments for eczema and sensitive skin conditions has been borne out of a fathers’ desire to ensure his son did not have to suffer from such debilitating physical and psychological effects of severe eczema.' 

Geoff Graham is the founder of Grahams Skincare with his main aim being to produce a product which was pleasant to his own, but also his sons skin. With himself having one of the worst cases of infantile eczema seen at Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne, he couldn't watch his son go through the same after knowing how it feels.
“I spent years experimenting with plant extracts and revolutionary natural ingredients and finally developed Calendulis Plus cream which is pleasant to apply and has brought amazing results for Ryan and myself"

Grahams Skincare have now gone on to produce a complete range of natural products to treat mild sensitive skin to more severe eczema and psoriasis flare-ups wherever they may be on the body. The products contain natural ingredients and plant lipids, including manuka honey, emu oil and colloidal oatmeal which deeply penetrate the layers of the skin to nourish and help repair the skin's protective barrier.

On a recent visit to the dertmatologist, we were explained to use a complete treatment to help Jack's eczema, including a bath oil, body cream and moisturising cream. Latest UK NICE guidelines recommend this too. Grahams skincare range have this sorted with a total emollient therapy regime. 
Grahams Calendulis Plus Cream contains calendula extract, manuka honey and emu oil which have superior anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and hydrating benefits to nourish and sooth red and inflamed skin and also promote quick healing. 
Grahams Eczema Cream is suitable for children and babies as young as 6 weeks old, containing Colloidal Oatmeal and it’s gentle formula is excellent for eczema, dermatitis, itchy, dry and irritated skin. Colloidal oatmeal provides a hydrating and protective barrier on the skin, replenishing moisture levels and preventing further moisture loss. It also has unique anti-inflammatory and antihistamic properties to reduce the itch and inflammation associated with eczema
Grahams Natural Bath Oil, Natural Body Wash and Natural Soap contains manuka oil and honey as well as natural oils to cleanse, replenish, nourish and protect the skin without drying it out. 
Grahams Natural Shampoo & Conditioner is a gentle blend of organic and natural ingredients to relieve and protect a dry and sensitive scalp. 
Grahams Natural Sooth-It Balm is an intensely hydrating and soothing ointment, perfect for cracked and parched skin on the hands and feet.

We have been using the eczema cream on Jack for around 2/3 weeks now the cream is thick and easy to apply and quickly absorbs into the skin. After applying the cream Jack's skin felt very smooth, I could smell a small scent to the cream but nothing which effected its use nor did Jack notice. Initially the cream worked very well for Jack and began to clear up his eczema slightly, however he since had another bad flare up. I do believe this cream could work well for some children and adults. Everyone's skin is different and Jack is still in early stages of eczema. 

Disclosure: We received a bottle of Eczema Cream free for this post. 


  1. I've not heard of this before. Poor Jack - I hope his skin improves soon.

  2. Great products. i will also share with what i tried for my patient's, its Emu Oil Hair & Skin Moisturizer from You can really expect a truly satisfying result done like expensive moisturizers but honestly its price is very reasonable where you can even save 57% from the regular one.
