SKU: N/A Categories: , , Tags: , ,


If you are looking for a natural eczema cream or balm then you’ve come to the right place. We’ve been making this best-selling, award-winning balm for 10 years and have 1000’s of happy customers.

Every ingredient in scratchy balm has been carefully selected by me (a clinical aromatherapist) after much research and trial and error.

It is handmade weekly in small batches, and is made with high quality vitamin-rich plant oils (most are certified organic) to nourish and hydrate your skin.

Here’s just a few reasons why it works so well:

Organic Shea Butter: contains Vitamins A, E and F which are particularly helpful for damaged skin either by sun or general pollution. Vitamin F is a rejuvenator to the skin. What makes Shea butter so useful in skincare is its ability to penetrate the skin without clogging pores, allowing the skin to breathe. It makes it amazing for any very dry skin conditions.

Organic Avocado Oil: containing high amounts of Vitamin A, B1, B2, D, and E, amino acids, sterols, pantothenic acid, lecithin, and other essential fatty acids. It is renowned to have healing and regenerating properties. It is very useful when treating sun, climate or chemical damaged skin that is dehydrated and undernourished. It is reported to help regenerate and rejuvenate the skin as well as soften the skin tissue. Organic Avocado oil is well known as a nutrient for penetrating dry skin and resolving endless skin problems.

Evening Primrose Oil: is a rich source of gamma linoleic acid, an Omega 6 fatty acid that is needed for our cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and reproductive systems, and to maintain healthy cells and body functions. It is also anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant and has been shown to be effective for the following conditions: Acne, Rosacea, Signs of ageing, Eczema and nourishes the scalp, hair, and nails.


How to Use this gentle, natural eczema cream/balm:

Gently dab a small amount onto sore, itchy skin with clean fingers, preferably at bedtime and then try not to scratch. You only need a bit. You can use it several times a day if required.

Suitable for all skin types and all ages. Can be used in pregnancy.

For more information on how to manage your skin problems, please refer to my eczema page, you need to do more than just apply a balm – heal your self from the inside with good food and nutritional care. And avoid using unnecessary chemicals and artificial perfumes wherever possible, particularly in washing powder!

Full Ingredients: butyrospermum parkii*, theobroma cacao*, helianthus annuus seed oil*, persea americana*, oenothera biennis, apis mellifera*, lavandula angustifolia*, pogostemon cablin*. (naturally occurring allergens: geraniol, limonene, linalool) *certified organic.

As well as working on eczema, many parents have also reported that Scratchy Balm clears up molluscum, a happy mum told me, “Your scratchy balm cured both my children’s molluscum within a couple of weeks and my son had been covered in them for over a year!”

I can make a VEGAN version on request, by replacing the beeswax with jojoba wax. Please contact me BEFORE ordering this as it costs slightly more.

    This is saving my hands right now with all the extra hand washing and especially from the hand sanitizer I am having to use now I am back at work! I slather it all over my hands at night before I sleep and wake up to lovely soft hands! I love the smell of this product too! I think this little tin will be a staple in our household now! 🙂

    Amazing scratchy balm, my skin was very sore till I started using it love it and it goes a long way.

  3. james.harnett (verified owner)

    An impressive, potent balm with amazing results. It is much better than more expensive products. It melts into the skin effortlessly leaving it soft and hydrated. The itchiness diminished immediately. It clears up my dry red skin, blisters, callouses, eczema, split cuticles and flaky lips. You don’t have to apply frequently. It is a marvel and I am so glad to have found it.

  4. Helen Baglin (verified owner)

    My daughter suffered with Molluscum for months. It was extremely itchy and troublesome and was spreading. Numerous trips to the doctors resulted in advice that nothing could be done. A friend recommended trying Scratchy Balm and I’m so glad they did, the results have been amazing! Within a week the molluscum starting improving and within a few weeks of simply applying the cream twice a day, they had completely gone! Such a fantastic product!

  5. Charlotte (verified owner)

    Love this balm, calmed down my son’s itchy rash after only a couple of applications and smells absolutely divine too! I’ve been using it on dry patches if skin on my face and it makes it feel so soft and super nourished. A lovely product!

  6. Esti Santamaria (verified owner)

    From the first application my skin has felt a lot less angry, itchy, you name it – I feel as though I have had an epiphany! I can also see myself using this balm as a night hand and feet cream, which although eczema free, they tend to be quite dry this time of the year. The smell is lovely – overall, I am beyond pleased! I also wanted to tell you that it was my GP who recommended your products!

  7. Clare (verified owner)

    Great product, calmed skin down so quickly.
    Bought again and would recommend to anyone.

  8. HEATHER KEYTE (verified owner)

    Amazing product – I have used it on my 2 year old Grandson and 90 year old Mum and it works!!.When customers come into my shop and I can see them “scritching”I whip out my tin and spatula and give them a trial and contact number.

  9. Joy Lenton

    Scratchy balm is a wonder product. It’s marvellous for dry, eczema-prone, red, irritated skin anywhere. I use it on my face, lips, hands and body. It really does live up to its name as a soothing balm. Thank you for this all-round remedy!

  10. Cat McGregor (verified owner)

    I bought Scratchy Balm after reading about it in the Daily Mail. It’s a fantastic product. I have eczema in my ears and I sometimes get a red and itchy neck and chest and as soon as I apply this product the itching stops. My husband has also started using it for little dry patches he gets on his face and calls it my magic cream!

  11. Nina (verified owner)

    Thought it was about time I left a review for the wonderful scratchy balm. I always have two pots on the go, in the house, my bag, often also on my desk at work. I started using it for the long term management of my eczema. Since, I have used it on my little boys mollescum which cleared up in weeks (rather than the months, years doctors will tell you it takes) on my cuticles, and my babies’ nappy rash (gone over night). My baby seems to have inherited my eczema and the scratchy balm can be used without a second thought on her face, where she gets patches of it. Also works brilliantly on cradle cap! Rub in, leave in over night, gently brush with baby hair brush the next day – gone :-). It really is amazing and for us, seems to work every time skin is not ‘behaving’.

  12. Gill (verified owner)

    After a week has made a difference to my children’s molluscum without any discomfort, unlike some other treatments.

  13. Maur

    I use this on the rough skin I get on my hands from mild eczema and it is wonderful at returning them to softness.

  14. Jan Lees

    Good all purpose soothing ointment. Gets rid of my ‘herald’ patches of excema before they get a grip!

  15. Pearl Goodson (verified owner)

    I started to suffer from facial dermatitis a few years ago ( after I’d turned 60 ) my skin was so red and sore it looked as if I’d been in a fire. My skin will be clear for months then suddenly flare up for no apparent reason
    But after I discovered the marvellous Scratchy Balm (recommended by a friend last year ) my skin is instantly
    soothed by this miracle balm and clears up faster than any prescription cream I’ve used.
    I take it on holiday with me and if anyone in my family show any signs of a rash I whip out the pocket scratchy
    which I insist cures all. I really can’t praise it enough.

  16. sue (verified owner)

    Bought this after reading about it on facebook, excellent product for itchy excema, very soothing, divine smell,

  17. Laura Lyons (verified owner)

    My 4 year old son has Molluscum contagiosum under his left arm which got diagnosed in September last year, the doctor told us the normal that it’ll just go on its own eventually etc

    One day I happened to run a Google search to see if there are any remedies to help it clear up and I found one mentioning scratchy balm so thought I’d try it and see what happens.

    Well what can I say, I ordered it at the end of May and started using it every night from then and within days you could see a difference, the molluscum has now gone and all that is left is a few scars and red marks from ones that had caught and bled previously.
    We still apply it daily.

    I wish I had taken a before and after picture to show the difference it has made!

    So a huge thank you! We call it the magic cream and my sons face lights up when he shows you how his ‘spots’ have gone! They didn’t overly bother him however I hated seeing the bigger ones catch, bleed and then get sore.

    I have recommended friends and family use it for alternative skin complaints such as eczema so hopefully you may get some more business!

  18. Jan (verified owner)

    Got paid last week so decided to treat myself to scratchy balm. It is REALLY amazing as everyone says and an excellent emollient! My dry skin is loving it. I also like the fact that its all natural. Top marks from me!

  19. Claire (verified owner)

    Lovely balm, has helped my son’s eczema and leaves his skin soft and smooth.

  20. kelly benton

    Lovely soothing balm. Smells delicious.

  21. Jo Owen (verified owner)

    Great product, works really well and smells lovely too! Also lasts for ages because you don’t need much for it to be effective.

  22. Martin Seddon (verified owner)

    What a great product, it’s helped my eczema on my hands tremendously. I use it at night and the odd times during the day when I feel an itch. A pot last for ages too so it’s great value !

  23. Geff N (verified owner)

    I cannot begin to explain just how superb this balm is. After years and years of sore hands and using nasty steroid creams, I’d given up finding something that would actual help my eczema. If I remember to use it twice a day, it will completely clear up my eczema and keep it away. I would go as far as to say it has changed my life and could not recommend it enough!

  24. Fiona (verified owner)

    This is a fabulous product. I’ve only had it a week and it’s been used for dry skin on hands, dry lips and dry patches on my little boys skin too. Smells really natural so you don’t feel like you’re putting heavily perfumed products on to your child’s skin. Brilliant!

  25. Caroline (verified owner)

    I cannot recommend lisa and her amazing organic scratchy balm highly enough. My baby had severe nappy rash and no over the counter or prescribed cream worked…until I was recommended scratchy balm and I haven’t looked back since! Lisa is super helpful too offering to make sure you get your products ASAP. The price is great too for this amazing product-I can’t live without it!

  26. BeckyLA (verified owner)

    A super product – my young sons are prone to a little excema particularly under the armpits and I rub some of this in, and within a day or so it has calmed down. I use it too on my hands when they get red and sore. Like all of Lisa’s products, this is fantastic.

  27. Jon H

    This balm is amazing. It’s really soothing and is great to put on overnight to sort out dry and itchy patches. There is just something so perfect about the combination of scents (the floweriness of the essential oils and the sweetness of the cocoa butter) that I find really comforting.

  28. Sarah

    Perfect for getting those repairs to feet done in time for summer sandals 🙂

    Thank you-wouldn’t have been able to show my feet without this saviour

  29. Rebecca Barnham Smyth (verified owner)

    Amazing, fabulous stuff. We use it for dry skin, insect bites, nappy rash etc etc etc…It works brilliantly every time…Thank you x
