Introducing the MPO - Multipurpose Ointment
"A PLANT-DRIVEN ALTERNATIVE FOR SENSITIVE, ECZEMA PRONE SKIN."
Have you ever used Vaseline or Aquaphor to soothe angry eczema? If so, you will absolutely enjoy the Multipurpose Ointment.
The MPO is a thick, oil-based, non-greasy, heavy-duty moisturizer that is great for dry, cracked and irritated skin. You can use it as an everyday, full body moisturizer - or you can use it as a spot treatment on inflamed and itchy areas. Did I mention it can be applied to your lips and eyelids as well?
And no need to worry about stinging, products high in oil content - like the MPO - are particularly good for soothing aggressive eczema. This waterless formula protects the skin barrier from further damage during an eczema flare-up
"When it comes to topical products for sensitive skin, less is more"
We are happy to share that our -full of plant-rich goodness- MPO is free of synthetic fragrances ✔ parabens ✔ dye ✔ petroleum ✔ phenoxyethanol ✔ sulfates ✔ phthalates ✔ preservatives ✔ While the MPO is NOT vegan (contains beeswax), it IS extremely gentle and effective on sensitive and delicate skin.
Just take a look at some of our key ingredients.
Shea Butter: Shea butter can increase moisture retention by acting as a protective layer over your skin and preventing water loss.
Beeswax: The hypoallergenic and moisturizing properties of beeswax make it an effective treatment for dry skin and more serious issues like eczema. Beeswax can be used to treat the itchiness of these conditions and prevent further drying out.
Zinc Oxide: Zinc has anti-inflammatory properties and increases the resurfacing of a skin wound with new epithelium. Also, zinc oxide paste has long been used as a soothing and anti-itch agent for the treatment of diaper rash. Topical zinc oxide has been also used in treating atopic dermatitis due to its strong antioxidant and antibacterial action.
Sunflower Oil: Virgin sunflower seed oil has anti-inflammatory properties to help soothe itchy and inflamed eczema skin, and can improve skin hydration and preserve the integrity of the skin's natural barrier.
Castor Oil: Castor oil stimulates tissue growth so that a barrier can be formed between the wound and the environment, decreasing the risk of infection. It also reduces dryness.
This plant-rich formulation is designed to nourish and nurture the most sensitive skin by:
● Accelerating wound healing.
● Moisturizing dry skin.
● Treating rashes and eczema.
● Adding nutritional value to your skin.
We always recommend applying our topical products on to clean skin. Shortly after a shower or bath is ideal time.
Our goal with this product is to give the eczema community - and parents of children dealing with this disorder - a steroid free ointment that is soothing, gentle, and effective.
