I agree with this. I've made a cream with honey in the past (it was one of the ingredients, not specifically meant for eczema) and it didn't help at all. Nor did a charcoal balm, nor did shea butter.... you get the picture.I simply think they are not listing the full ingredient list on their site.
Also, I would not expect any miracles from such a product, and in my opinion, their advertising pushing them over cosmetic advertising to medical. There is no magic bullet for eczema since everyone is different.
For a lotion, yes, but not a balm. Honey is water soluble, not oil soluble, and will separate if put in an anhydrous balm, no matter how much it is whipped initially. Additionally, I feel like depending on how much honey is used in either application, it will lose most benefit and become bug food.I agree with this.

Just a thought, though... if the honey is melted into the liquid used in the cream, wouldn't that work?
While they make the disclaimer above, they also claim to have had a Human repeated insult patch test (HRIPT) conducted. Somehow I am betting they have not spent the money on such testing.I think I found the ingredients. So it seems like a lotion but I’m still wondering about emulsifying. I’m gonna attempt something and will let ya know! I have so much beeswax and honey and have a great local supply for it.
their advertising and claims and the reviews of their products does make me wonder! They do have a disclaimer about their products not being approved by the FDA but I thought that disclaimer was for supplements, not cosmetics.
yeah, I was thinking unstable or omitting, both of which I am not happy to support in a cosmetic making unsusbstantiated drug claims.A lot of their products seem to contain both water- and oil-soluble ingredients (like aloe juice with all kinds of oils). Which means that they either are not listing the emulsifier/solubilizer, or these are just unstable... In my experience no matter how much you whip or blend, it will eventually separate. In either case, I'm pretty skeptical....
I hope you can come up with something that works though.
He hasn’t yet but he doesn’t really eat much either. It’s something we are going to bring up at his next checkup because I have some interesting food allergies, however I don’t have any skin issues. My husband did and he is allergic to cows milk protein, which I find interesting.
