    A message from Frankie Apothecary about what's in their Kawakawa Balm. Have you checked the ingredients in your Eczema or nappy cream? It may surprise you.

    Did you know that none of our products contain any water or water based ingredients? We are the only NZ Skincare company to make this decision! Are we crazy? We don't think so!

    Water is a fantastic ingredient in lotions and creams for normal skin. But we specialise in sensitive dry itchy skin conditions. Water in skincare for sensitive or dry, itchy skin conditions should be avoided for 2 reasons:

    1.If you have Eczema, Psoriasis, Nappy Rash or any other dry, itchy skin condition, then your skin is may be inflamed or even itchy. This is due to something called Trans Epidermal water loss (rapid water loss of the skins layers).

    The goal is to find a topical treatment to trap that water in. It does not matter how many active ingredients are in your skincare, your eczema inflamed skin will just not heal if the skincare you are using contains water as it will not form enough of a barrier to trap that water in.

    2. Any skincare that contains water must also contain preservatives, emulsifiers and stabilisers. Known irritants to skin and can cause further flares. We don't use any of these!

    Yes the product may be cheaper to make and sell as water is much cheaper than organic oils BUT our promise is that you won't need as much of it and you will likely not need to keep trying other products.

    Frankie Kawakawa Balm could be quite literally all you need!
