A natural and gentle, very effective probiotic healing eczema balm.
Bentonite clay is extremely healing for skin, while herbal extracts, oils (especially Neem oil) and butters gently soothe, and topical probiotics can help repopulate good bacteria on your skin and calm inflammation.
Studies are showing that certain topical probiotics have antimicrobial properties, meaning they can create holes in bad bacteria and kill them. Probiotics can help fight harmful bugs from triggering inflammation.
Just as inflammation in the gut can cause inflammation in the brain, it can also lead to inflammation in the skin. This inflammation can manifest as acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, or other skin conditions. So in the same way probiotics can ameliorate symptoms of depression by reducing inflammation, they can also improve skin disorders through a similar mechanism.
When certain types of probiotics are placed in contact with skin cells, they calm the parts of the cells that may want to react to the presence of bad bacteria that they see as a threat. These healthy signals produced by the probiotics stop the skin cells from sending “attack” messages to the immune system that result in inflammation - so fascinating!
As well as using this balm, we also recommending looking at internal causes like reducing the inflammatory foods in your diet and also using an internal probiotic.
