This cream includes the best anti-inflammatory actives available and we hope customers will benefit whether fighting psoriasis, eczema, atopic dermatitis, or other inflammatory conditions. Although the cause of each disorder may be different, the underlying inflammation common to all these afflictions should be alleviated.

The cream has a lovely raspberry color, because of the strong color of the vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). It contains no fragrance or essential oils of any kind, but none are needed!

The terms eczema, atopic dermatitis or atopic eczema are used to describe a chronic inflammatory skin disease with allergic causes, in which the skin itches and there is some scaling, crusting and/or oozing (rather than just redness or inflammation). Skin affected by eczema is more prone to bacterial infection, as the skin barrier is broken, facilitating attack by microorganisms. People who have eczema also tend to have other manifestations of allergy, like allergic rhinitis or asthma.

Atopic dermatitis is very common, affecting about 10% of the population, and it can start as early as 2 months of age. What can you do if you or a loved one has atopic dermatitis? It may help to avoid common allergens such as dust mites, animal danders and saliva, and pollen. Children can have food allergies so it is worthwhile to explore this aspect with the help of an MD, always remembering that the common exclusion diets, where several common foods are avoided, can deprive the child of essential nutrients. Immunotherapy, i.e. desensitization by "allergy shots", does not seem to work for atopic dermatitis, in contrast to its relative success in treating patients with other allergic disorders. Avoid factors that may worsen atopic dermatitis: excessive bathing, low humidity environments, emotional stress, dry skin, rapid temperature changes, and exposure to solvents and detergents.

Doctors do not agree on whether showering or bathing is preferable in patients with atopic dermatitis. Some recommend a hydrating bath followed by immediate application of emollients (oils) and others recommend a shower of short duration, which better removes surface antigens that may be acting as trigger factors. If you take baths you can add our Rosehip Seed Oil to the bath water.

The itchiness of eczema leads to scratching, and scratching leads to rashes. This vicious circle must be stopped because the scratching can lead to permanent changes in the skin, including scars, pigmentary changes, and infections. Although cortisone is a good idea for emergencies, it cannot be used long term because it may lead to skin thinning, depigmentation, and stretch marks. Also, corticosteroids may reach the blood stream, suppressing the activity of the adrenal glands. Skin hydration is a key component of overall management. Lotions have a high water and low oil contents, which can worsen dry skin via evaporation, thus triggering flares of eczema. Conversely, thick creams with low water content, or ointments, which have zero water content, protect better against dry skin (and eczema flares). Apply emollients immediately after bathing to keep the skin well hydrated. To alleviate the itching you can use calamine, or try our Rosehip Seed Oil, Pomegranate Seed Oil, or take a warm bath with oat glucan and Rosehip Seed Oil. To decrease inflammation, use Alpha Bisabolol, White Willow Bark Extract, Chamomile, Rosehip Seed Oil, and/or oat glucan. All are anti-inflammatories without the side effects of the corticosteroids.

Apply Anti-Inflammatory Cream as needed to clean, dry skin.

    My really sensitive, break-out prone skin LOVES this stuff!
  • Author: Mary
    This cream is fantastic. I have dry sensitive skin with rosacea and it has really calmed my redness. It seems to make my skin less sensitive too.
  • Author: Yvonne
    I have been using this cream for only two weeks and my super sensitive, couperose red skin loves it. I have had no reaction, feels refreshing on my face and it is less red. Great product!

    I would like to say a few words about anti-inflammatory cream. I have psoriasis. Only on my elbows lately. But I lean on my elbows a lot and it hurts when I have a patch of psoriasis there. I had a prescription cream that worked but I lost it somewhere. I had a jar of anti-inflammatory cream so I tried that. Well, it took the psoriasis away very quickly, as good as the prescription cream and no doctor visit required. This is very good stuff. I bet it would work well on exzema and different types of rashes. I'll be trying it on everything that needs calming and let you know what else it works on. Anyone with these conditions, try this cream, it works.

    I love the anti-inflammatory cream. I have been using a lot of the actives for my rosacea with great results, but have never been able to drink wine without getting beet red. Tonight was the first, and the only different thing that I have been using is the anti-inflammatory cream. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!

    The Anti Inflammatory Cream is one of the best creams for psoriasis I've ever tried. Absorbs super fast, which is so important because I have to use it for my squirming little 2 year old that has this uncomfortable skin disorder. SHE even said, hmmmm "smell nice mommy." If there is a place where you place your customer kudos, please add me to the list! I'm impressed with your products each and every time I've ordered. I've never been disappointed in fact, all my orders of Skin Active products have EXCEEDED my expectations! Please keep up the good work Skin Actives!

    i am loving the anti-inflammatory cream! it is really soothing and calming for my rosacea-troubled cheeks. it's been a gradual process but the redness has been steadily fading and the tiny red bumps, which had resurfaced after i thought i had them beat, are on the retreat again. it also adds just the right light touch of moisture i need.

    Works great on eczema patches on both myself and my baby. I've been religiously applying it to puffy, red pores on my cheeks for a couple of months and it looks like I'm finally seeing some results! Great texture, little scent, and it actually works.

    Does this work for eye bags? It sounds as if it might.
  • Author: Robin
    I have some sort of skin condition on my face, colourless bumps around my chin and mouth. A number of dermatologists have given me many, many creams that seem to just make it worse. Because I had tried so many prescription creams already, as well as antibiotics that didn't work, I was skeptical to try it but the nice price made it seem less painful in the event that it didn't work. Anyhow, I'm so pleasantly surprised! Although the condition never quite disappears completely, I see about a 95 percent improvement on most days! It's truly amazing cream and not only does it diminish the look of the skin condition, it feels great on (well you really don't feel it) and it moisturizes my dry skin to boot. Thanks so much! I'm a huge fan of your product line!

    Feels good but turns my fair skin yellowish green. Doesn't work in the daytime! Had a pretty embarrassing day because of it!
