Skin Shop: Cardiospermum Gel & Bug Balm

Skin Shop is a family business based on the Isle of Wight who make products which are suitable for those suffering from eczema, psoriasis, sensitive and dry skin conditions.  They use scientific based formulas which are created by professional researchers and chemists. Products are chemical, fragrance free and as natural as possible.

The very first product they made was Cardiospermum Gel (£9.95 - 100ml)* which is great for hot, itchy and irritated summer skin. Keep it in the fridge for cooling comfort.  Great to relieve eczema, dermatitis, heat rash, sweat rash, sunburn and insect bites.  It is made from an extract of the Cardiospermum plant known as Balloon Vine along with soothing Aloe Vera. It has a slightly herbal scent and absorbs instantly leaving the skin feeling cool, calm and comfortable.

The perfect summertime companion is Bug Balm (£7.95 - 30g)* which is in a great carry-around tin.  Apply to the affected area the instant you get bitten. The balm contains extract of liquorice root which is an effective anti-inflammatory and calms the skin soothing as well as reducing any swelling.
