Product DescriptionIrritable Skin Balm 120g
Just because you or your children have a skin problem, it no longer means that chemical based ointments are your only option. This cream took over a year to formulate and license and is both anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal.
Next time your practitioner suggests the traditional chemical based anti-inflamatory creams, mention that there is now another option developed in Australia.
This balm can be followed by the MSM Soothing Cream moisturiser which is designed to keep easily irritated skin moist and supple.
Directions: Apply cream topically as required to keep skin moist and healthy. If symptoms persist, consult your health care practitioner. As with all natural products, patch test first to check for allergies.
Active Ingredients: 20mg/g Aloe Vera inner leaf juice fresh, Eqv 5mg/g dry Marinara chamomilla flower liquid extract, Eqv 5mg/g dry Centella asiatica herb tincture, 500 microgram/g Sage Oil Dalmatian.
Excipient Ingredients: Water – purified, Almond Oil, Cetostearyl alcohol & Polysorbate 60, Olive Oil, Squalane, Piroctine Olamine, Allantoin, d-alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E), Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Humulus Lupulus (Hop) Extract
|20mg/g Aloe Vera inner leaf juice fresh||Aloe Vera. Most people already know the healing and soothing benefits of Aloe Vera. We loved it before we made skin care, and we love it in our creams.|
|Eqv 5mg/g dry Marinara chamomilla flower liquid extract||Matricaria chamomilla extract contains active Flavonoid and Essential Oil compounds, which are particularly advantageous in the care of sensitive skin. Anti-inflammatory properties due to the inhibition of histamine release anti-free radical action and inhibition of the super oxide radical synthesis.|
|Eqv 5mg/g dry Centella asiatica herb tincture||Centella asiatica promotes healing.|
|500 microgram/g Sage Oil Dalmatian||Sage Oil is known for its anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Like a lot of essential oils, some practitioners do not recommended using pure Sage Oil in Aromatherapy when pregnant. For our eczema balm, we use a small amount and it is applied to the skin rather than inhaled or digested in tea. However, when pregnant we suggest doing your own research as peace of mind is the most important thing.|
|Water – purified||When we were told that we have to call our purified water “Aqua” we thought they were kidding. But we can’t fight bureaucracy. So we aren’t trying to be fancy, but we do need to call our water “Aqua” sometimes.|
|Almond Oil||High in the types of fatty acids needed for troubled skin.|
|Cetostearyl alcohol||Creams are made from a mix of purified water and oils so as to be more moisturising than oil alone. To hold water and oils together, they need an emulsifying wax. We use a plant based wax that allows the water and oils to stay together.|
|Polysorbate 60||A lot of our customers are small. So small in fact that they have sometimes mistaken the creams their mums or dad’s put on the nappy change table for food. So we always choose the most edible ingredients we can. Polysorbates are used in a lot of foods like Mayonnaise, Ice-cream etc to hold the cream and water together. We use them to help with the same thing.|
|Olive Oil||Wonderfully healthy for the skin. So many benefits, it might be best to Google "Olive Oil Skin" instead.|
|Squalane||One of our favourite moisturising oils. It helps leave your skin moisturised and dewy. It is good for all skin types, including acne prone skin.
Our body produces a small amount of squalene, but the amount diminishes when we get older, starting in our twenties. Squalene is required for our skin to keep it moisturised and fight aging. It is also a unique antioxidant from olives that protects our skin from free-radical damages.
Since Olive squalene's composition is very similar to human sebum, it can penetrate our skin very quickly to help our skin to fight dryness. It enhances skin elasticity and moisture retention.
|Piroctine Olamine||Piroctone Olamine is an anti-yeast ingredient. Non-irritating, it also helps keep the cream free from bacteria and mould.|
|Allantoin||Comfrey Root has long been known as a healing plant. Allantoin was identified as the part of the plant that performed this function and it has since been synthesised to make it more concentrated and effective. So the allantoin we use is the pure ingredient. Allantoin has been termed a cell proliferant in texts such as the "United States Dispensatory". It is said to clean away dead tissue, hastening the growth of new healthy tissue. Allantoin has been also termed a counter irritant. Allantoin produces its desirable effects by promoting and speeding up the healthy, natural processes of the body. It helps the skin to help itself. It is also promoted as preventing lines and wrinkles by assisting skin repair.|
|d-alpha-tocopherol (Vitamin E)||We use the more expensive, natural Vitamin E in our creams, not synthetic. Natural Vitamin E has up to twice the bioavailability of synthetic forms. Vitamin E has antioxidant action as well as free radical scavenger properties. Abundant assortments of researchers from diversified medical fields have theorized that this can slow the aging process. (Sources: Skin Pharmacology and Applied Skin Physiology, November-December 2001, and Free Radical Biology and Medicine, October 1999).|
|Citric Acid||Citric Acid is a weak fruit acid used as a fruit based pH Balancer|
|Xanthan Gum||Xanthan Gum is a glucose based ingredient derived from Corn. It is used in a lot of foods and we use it to help keep our creams stable using food based ingredients.|
|Humulus Lupulus (Hop) Extract||Cosmetic creams need to stay pure from bacteria. That is why ingredients like Parabens etc are used by a lot of companies. These work great at achieving their aim, but a lot of our “customers” are very young children. Sometimes accidents happen and so we aim to make our creams as food like as possible. We worked for over a year to develop a preservation system based on Hop Extract. All our creams have now been checked for preservative efficacy using the British Pharmacopeia test. We are very proud that we are probably one of the first companies to develop this natural and edible anti-bacterial system into our creams.|
I just wanted to drop you a quick but heartfelt thank you for your wonderful product Moogoo Eczema and Psoriasis Balm. I have always been blessed with good skin but the last 4 years I have suffered terribly with Psoriasis all around my eyes. I have tried MANY products with no success and rely on cortisone cream and sticky heavy-duty moisturiser. Last weekend I was in so much pain and itching with my eyelids bleeding and the surrounding area looking like alligator skin and plaguing and flaking that I got up in the middle of the night and went driving for a 24 hour chemist. I found one but they didn't stock the cream that I had been researching to try next. They did, however stock Moogoo. The assistant assured me that she had been hearing of really good results with this brand. I was very skeptical but as the price was so reasonable I thought it was better than nothing.
No stinging! And it was so light that after a minute you couldn't even feel you had applied cream. Well, within my cuts had healed and the plaguing had reduced by . It has now been and my psoriasis has disappeared and my skin has returned to baby's bottom smoothness. My only disappointment was that I didn't take before and after photos to prove it. I've been singing your product's praises to everyone I know and searching your website for my next purchase. Maybe the Full Cream I think. Love your work!

Just wanted to let you know that I have had a real problem with eczema for about 10 years. I have consulted a couple of , been on long term , used various strengths of topical etc and only ever managed to temporarily alleviate the symptoms. About 3 months ago I asked a local chemist to recommend an every day moisturiser that simply wouldn't exacerbate the problem and they put me onto your eczema balm and your every day moisturiser. My skin responded almost and I have had no recurrence since regularly using your products. This is very exciting!
Thanks so much.

Hello Moogoo. Thank you so much for the recent order you sent me. My son has suffered from eczema since he was 6 months old and at nearly 4 has never slept a full night due to all the itching. The treatment we currently use for Jakes skin is the usual as he gets reoccurring skin infections. It has caused a lot of in our house as he is the youngest of three and needs a lot of attention. Your company was recommended to us by family who live in Melbourne and boy am I glad they did. What results we had in just . Jake actually slept last night for the first time!!!!!! His skin is comfortable and he loves the eczema balm which you sent to me as a sample, I have just ordered lots and lots of it. Once again thankyou, thankyou.

Hello to the Moo Goo team
I just wanted to let you know how great your products are, which I know you already know! My mother underwent chemotherapy earlier this year and I gave her several of your products to help maintain skin integrity and moisturisation.
I gave her the face cream with resveratrol, the full cream skin cream and the tingling honey lip balm. The lip balm totally prevented the usual and cracking often experienced with the particular she was on. (Slight soreness was experienced occasionally, but no cracking!) As well, the rest of her skin integrity was maintained. She has made a full recovery thankfully, and remains a MooGoo convert. In fact, her skin glows with health and moogoo!
Also my teenage daughter began to develop acne so I purchased your anti acne face wash. It has been wonderful. Within a , no more pimples! She was ecstatic and uses it religiously every evening.
Thank you for a great product line.

Karen and all the herd,
Thankyou for your message and yes you have answered my email and sent samples which I received gratefully and so have many of my patients. The chemist next door to our practice has now stocked the products and all of my patients are buying them and all have never felt better. I have a 16 year old girl who had eczema and for all her life her mother has tried one product after another and the girl put up with itching, bleeding and infection at times, she became isolated and dropped out of school because of stress and bullying because of her condition. Her mother came in this week with her daughter who for the first time is free of itch and the angry rash and has only some pale pink marks on her skin. She is glowing and happy and her mother could not thank me and hug me enough- tears and many tears have been shed in happiness. So I send the hugs to you. This is only one story of many happy patients and the chemist is having to make bigger orders to keep up with the demand.
Thank you from me and all who I care for,
You always take a bit of a punt when you order stuff online. You wonder if the product will come, if it will be in good condition and finally if it does really work. I took my chances and I can proudly say the Eczema and Psoriasis cream is an awesome product. My skin is healing really quickly.
Everything about your company just makes sense. Where do we start. Most Importantly your products work, you delivered on time, you gave me a small bonus of MSM Cream with a smile drawn on the invoice (everyone loves bonuses), you label your ingredients clearly (active, excipient and preservative) and have a memorable funky company name. You guys just keep getting tick swooshes in the right places.
I truly respect how your company is doing the best thing for its customers.
You are a great Australian Company, keep it up.
Your Satisfied Customer, Vu An
My baby son Zane has suffered from eczema since he was around 8 weeks old. He is 9 months old now and we have finally discovered Moogoo! We've tried so many other organic products and of course all the anti-inflammatory creams but Moogoo is our solution! I've just received my second order of the eczema and psoriasis cream and msm smoothing cream. I've been using both products on his skin 3-4 times per day and we finally have the eczema under control. Thank you for such a great product! Zane loves it too... He attacked the container while I was getting his dinner ready. I've attached the photo so you can see for yourself, it certainly made us all laugh at home.
Thank you again...
Melissa & Zane
( We use edible natural oils in our creams, not Paraffin Oil (Petroleum Oil) used in Sorbolene and many pharmacy creams. But we still don't suggest this as our creams look better than they taste.)
Here’s our MooGoo fan (Sandy, NSW)
I'm so sorry for only getting back to you now. I just wanted to let you know that we have had great success using the moogoo products on my childrens eczema! My 2yo sons has cleared up, with no signs that he ever had any, and his was quite bad, particularly behind his knees and around his ankles. My daughter's is still dry looking around her face, but she tends to forget to put the creams on, but the redness is gone, which is a huge improvement for her.I am so happy to have found that my local chemist stocks a lot of your products, so I bought some more of them from there. I also bought the shampoo, as I now have a new baby and the first thing I noticed, is that after just one use of your shampoo, my 2 year old and my baby's cradle cap is completely cleared up, and they both had quite thick cradle cap.I didn't do anything other than wash their hair with the Moogoo. I didn't even try and comb away the cradle cap, it has just disappeared in the week after I washed their hair. Thankyou again for sending on the samples, I really appreciate it, and I will continue to use your products for my children, as they haven't reacted to them at all, and they really do seem to be a '[edited due to regulations*]' product!
I actually just wanted to say that I have suffered from very dry skin especially on my face and head and I started using the Moo Goo shampoo and conditioner and it cleared my dry skin in a couple of washes. I recently ran out and had forgotten to get more and I used a normal shampoo and within a couple of days my dry scalp was back. Ive actually recommended Moo Goo to lots of people because it has done such a fantastic job for super sensitive skin. Im also really excited to see the skin care range. Im quite allergic to normal skin care products and havnt used any for about 3 months so when I go to buy my shampoo I will also be buying the skin care products. Thanks again for such great products.
HI Everyone at Moo Goo.
I can’t recall ever writing to a company before but this is important. My daughter (aged 22) has been using Moo Goo for several weeks after a recommendation from a friend. She has suffered her whole life with psoriasis. I have seen such an outstanding change in her skin that I tried it too. I loved it of course.
Yesterday we received our second order (the first coming from local health food shop and this one from your on-line store). (The on-line order worked very well by the way).
In this order I received a sample pot of your MSM Soothing cream. If I could jump down this computer and kiss you I would. At 46 I believed that I would be forever with red itchy and break out skin. My whole life has been spent trying every product on the market.
At 8.30 I unpacked our order. At 9.30 I cleansed my red spotty itchy face with my new oil cleanser, applied the soothing cream, applied my Double Cream and went to bed. This morning I woke to a face I have not seen since I was a child. The red is gone, all gone. The spots are smaller, much smaller (almost gone), and no itch. What’s more I swear I have 90% less wrinkles. My skin has a real creamy complexion and is soft to touch. This morning in my staff meeting at work 3 of my colleagues came to me, individually, and asked if I had been and had a treatment, and how long will it last. I intend to go to work tomorrow make up free.
Many Many thanks. I have loved your Double Cream from the first application of the first container but your soothing cream is a [edited due to regulations*] worker.
Your customer for ever.
Dr K, Newcastle.
Hi all you hard working MooGoo people [Ed:True that!]
For over 10 years my husband Terry has suffered from psoriasis on the scalp, which was both embarrassing and very itchy. We have spent many dollars on many different chemicals which was against my belief and I hated using these on Terry's poor scalp. None of these chemicals did much to alleviate the problem.
We received our first order a few days ago of Eczema and Psoriasis Balm which Terry used immediately and the difference is unbelievable. No itching, redness or unsightly 'snow storm' on his collar. He is also using the Milk Shampoo and his hair feels wonderful. I decided to try the shampoo this morning and my scalp felt soothed and my hair, healthy.
Thank you for a very well researched product and for explaining the difference between "active ingredients" and "excipient ingredients". We are happy at MooGoo being Proudly Australian and is made using natural ingredients.
Thank you also for the sample of moisturising cream which was gratefully received. We are coming to Queensland for 2 weeks within the next few days so maybe we will be able to visit you and load up with more unbelievable but true products.
Ann and Terry, Victoria
