Eczema stems from excess dryness of the skin, the skin feels tight and becomes itchy, when scratched the skin cracks; these cracks become highways for bacterial infections causing painful atopic dermatitis that require topically applied remedies.
9. Why is Salveez a thicker cream than say a moisturizer?
Salveez is emulsified using beeswax. For eczema you need a barrier cream that will protect the broken skin allowing it to heal. By putting Salveez on the area you are creating the barrier needed whilst sesame oil and the herbs work on healing the skin.

Salveez is, as the name suggests, a salve which means that it should be applied in a thicker layer than say a moisturising lotion. For severe rashes, it should be smeared over to seal the area, calming and allowing healing to occur.
