5/5

It got to me incredibly fast which was amazing. And the products have been great so far. I was surprised I got the face mask and lovely soap for free and am so grateful.
I'm not sure if this is the place to mention it but if these products become apart of my daily routine which I think they will. My only concern is because I love so far away I would have to buy new containers every time I want to refill my stock.
I'm trying to reduce my waste, so I'd be fine if everything was in glass but maybe we could come to an arrangement where I send my empty bottles back to you for a refill. Would be much easier if I wasn't living over the other side of Australia. Haha. I could just pop in otherwise.

5/5

My skin is feeling so good! It feels fresh and not itchy or red. I'm on my 4th day of using these products and im loving the results do far!

My husband’s order was more than mine!

My husband loves his Marrakesh for Men soap. One year when we managed to go to the store, he bought almost every single bar! It makes him smell delicious- his mates were keen to know which soap he uses too!

Irritant Contact Dermatitis OR Don’t Use A Body Wash If You Have Sensitive Skin

Classic case of contact dermatitis of the fingers

Classic case of contact dermatitis of the fingers

You know the signs…your hands become dry, irritated and the skin reddens and starts to peel away. Small blisters appear and the itching drives you crazy.  Then as the condition gets worse our skin dries and cracks becoming even more painful in the process.
What you are more than likely experiencing is a classic case of Irritant Contact Dermatitis of the hands.

What is Irritant Contact Dermatitis?

[/fusion_builder_column]
Dermatitis of the palm - this can become extremely itchy and painful

Dermatitis of the palm – this can become extremely itchy and painful

Irritant Contact Dermatitis is casued by your skin – most often your fingers and hands- coming into contact with an irritant.

These irritants range from nickel allergies, contact with plants (Grevilleas are notorious) and chemical allergies.
Of these, contact with various irritant chemicals are an extremely common cause.
And the  chemical called Sodium Lauryl Sulfate – often refered to as SLS – is responsible for the vast majority of Irritant Contact Dermatitis we see at Moon Haven.

What can you do?

If you are sensitive to SLS then the first thing to do is to avoid any contact with it.

This can be difficult because SLS is found in everything from dish washing detergents, liquid body washes, washing powder, household cleansers, shampoo and even toothpaste.

So this means finding products without SLS in them or avoiding contact with the chemical.

What We Recommend:

We have had great success helping people to manage their contact dermatitis over the years.  From hairdressers about to give up their job to clients who have been unable to do any work because of the pain and  condition of their hands, we have seen some incredible healings.

What to do:

1.       Avoid using shampoos, detergents and cleansers that contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate.

2.       Wear gloves when washing up

3.       Better still get your partner or the kids to wash up for you.

4.       Avoid using liquid body washes  as these draw the body’s natural oils from the skin.

5.       Use only small amounts of natural handmade cold process soap when bathing and washing your hands.  Water only is even better.

As we say ”Unless you are very dirty –  wash your underarms and undercarriage with a little handmade soap and just use water for the rest .”

Treatment

Universal Herbal Ointment is fanstic to hepl with Contact Dermatitis of the hands

Universal Herbal Ointment is a fantastic  help with Contact Dermatitis of the hands

We highly recommend applying a ­very small amount of our Universal Herbal Ointment to the affected areas morning and night.

This helps by firstly moisturising the affected area, helping the skin to remain supple.  It also forms a slight barrier against the elements.

The essential oils and herbs in the ointment help with the pain and inflammation as well as promoting skin granulation and healing.

Most people who have used the ointment find that they start getting relief within 12 hours.
