Elave Baby Range

Bioderma Photoderm MAX


What a beautiful week its been.  Unfortunately it seems that the sunsmart message has fallen on a lot of deaf (and red ) ears. Remember from 1st March until the end of September we need to use a high factor sunscreen, wear protective clothing, wear sunglasses seek shade between 11am and 3 om and wear […]

SkinCeuticals Stockist


When I hit my late 20’s and began to look for skincare with scientific roots and measurable results I was recommended Skinceitucals by a Dermatologist friend.  In the industry, it is known as the ‘rolls Royce of skincare’.  Its promises are clear.  Its philosophy is simple and is based on 3 key pillars- prevent, protect […]

Elave Intensive Ointment


Any regular readers will know I’m a big fan of the Elave range.  Recently they have launched a new sensitive ointment to treat eczema and psoriasis.  Its oily formulation protects the skins natural barrier, softens the plaques associated with psoriasis and promotes moisture  levels in the skin.  Like all elave products it contains no parabens […]

Elave Baby Nappy Cream


Something I have been passionate about for a long time is skin care for small people.  Recent research has shown that babies born into families with eczema, asthma or hayfever are more likely to develop eczema at a young age especially if soaps and highly perfumed lotions and creams are used from birth.  It is […]
