REVITOL ECZEMA CREAM REVIEW
At this point in my life I'm convinced there are more eczema creams on the market than there are people actually suffering from eczema. This is why I generally avoid giving “reviews” for specific lotions. However, there are a few creams that have risen to the top (pun intended) and have been able to stand the test of time as well as the test of the patient. These creams deserve a slow clap and an honest review. Revitol Eczema Cream is one of those products.
In honor of this review, I thought it worthwhile to start a thread dedicated to the more popular products which can and often do provide relief to many people with eczema.
Firstly, let me just quickly jump up on my high horse for one brief moment… There we go…
You may have heard me say it before – my belief is that the cure for eczema begins from within. Topical treatments can be effective but they are only one part of the solution to your overall healing and recovery from this dreaded problem. When deficiencies and gut issues are linked to so many diseases, including eczema, then it’s a no brainer that the first step to recovery begins in your tummy. Annnd - End rant.
Revitol Eczema Cream
As mentioned, the first product on the list had to be Revitol Eczema Cream simply due to the fact that it is surrounded by hype and is one of the highest selling eczema creams on the market at the moment.
The first thing I want to do is go through the ingredients list to give you the scoop on what exactly you are putting onto, and thus into your body.
Without going past their first page, the 100% natural ingredients seal located on their website is already giving me some good vibes. Let me tell you what they are…
…oh wait… there is no ingredients list! In fact the only ingredients I could find on their site were colloidal oatmeal and ceramides.
Granted, these ingredients are pretty special as far as eczema treatment types go, I still had to do some fancy foot work to try to find the other ingredients using various other channels.
Safe to say, the ingredients are 100% natural and backed by some pretty impressive reviews so I will now provide you with my breakdown.
This is basically a fancy name for dried and finely ground oatmeal. The reason for the ‘colloidal’ part is essentially to increase the surface area of the oatmeal to make contact with as much of the body as possible.
Making the oatmeal ubiquitous throughout the cream means that its healing and soothing properties are evenly dispersed and its delivery is fast and efficient, meaning your skin benefits from the moisturising, anti-itch and anti-inflammatory properties as quickly as possible.
As I've mentioned on this website previously; oatmeal has been an effective eczema treatment for many people used in baths or in topical solutions.
The famous oatmeal soak has been around for generations and has brought much relief to those suffering from angry eczema flares and irritated rashes. The best part about oatmeal is it is so gentle that it can be used on the delicate skin of babies.
Now for the more technical info on oatmeal!
Due to the saponin and phenols content, oatmeal is naturally cleansing for the skin as it readily absorbs dirt, oil and odour. This is a gentle action which does not strip the skin.
Oatmeal also has an incredible capacity to balance the pH of the skin, essentially restoring the acidity back to its healthy state which helps control bacteria and infection.
Flavonoids found in oatmeal will act as a strong antioxidant that goes to work on the body to help fight the cell-damaging force of free radicals.
The bonus here is of course that very few people will have an adverse reaction to this ingredient. Just as a disclaimer however, those with gluten sensitivities should be vigilant when using this product even though the jury at this stage seems positive that those with gluten allergies will NOT react when applied topically.
Revitol Eczema Cream have boosted their formula by adding ceramides to the mix. For the reasons below, we are eternally grateful.
Ceramides are lipid (fat) molecules which help compose the upper layer of the skin barrier that is responsible for the hydration, sealing and protection component of the skin. Research has indicated that there are less ceramides in the skin of someone with eczema, which is why their skin barrier is not intact and hence, loses its ability to function properly.
The introduction of ceramides via a topical solution is thus beneficial and provides an “important clinical effect on the clearance of mild to medium eczema”. This is why by introducing ceramides to the skin, you are helping restore and seal the barrier and water content of the skin and giving your eczema the chance to soften, strengthen and repair.
Finding ceramides in natural skin care products is uncommon which is why this ingredient has got me a little bit excited.
The second thing that stood out to me was the acceptance from the National Eczema Association. Only ‘good eczema creams’ which come with proven research and scientific backing can obtain this rating. In the National Eczema Association we trust!
Revitol was established in 2002 and has held a strong reputation over these years, which should continue well past 2016. They have produced many products for the health and beauty industry and seem to have some decent scientific endorsements from the nutrition and dermatology industries.
Revitol Eczema Cream puts my mind at ease as it promotes its product as having been developed and tested by dermatologists and as far as I know, you can’t make that statement unless it’s true.
They also make the claim that this cream can visibly restore skin in as little as 3 days. 3 days! If their tests results even come close to this then there must be something of real value here.
One of the other things that sets Revitiol apart from the snake oil salesman is the 100% money back guarantee. Nothing cheeses me off more than buying products that don’t work, then having absolutely no customer support to warrant a refund. Again, I haven’t purchased this product so I can’t say for certain their support is strong, however I have yet to find a review which even mentions having to return a tube, which is probably a good thing!
What puts me at ease is the way they really push the fact that they believe in this cream so much they guarantee a full refund, giving me peace of mind that this is essentially risk free. So if the cream doesn’t work for you then at least there is a returns policy in place and a commitment to make good on their promise.
It certainly isn’t the most expensive eczema cream on the market and it also isn’t the cheapest. As a life-long eczema sufferer, price doesn’t really rate as a factor for me, providing it frickin works!
The amount of money I have poured into eczema treatments so far easily runs into the tens of tens of thousands so my bar is set pretty high as far as what I am willing to spend to get real results.
Where's the best place to pick up Revitol Eczema Cream?
Always, always, always go through the official channels. Like an expensive handbag, knock off products are everywhere in this industry. However unlike handbags, the repercussions on your skin can be severe and should not be something you gamble on. Basically, beware of overly cheap products you find on a secondary site!
You cannot find this product in many places and good luck trying to find it in your department store. You basically can’t find it anywhere except through Revitol, which essentially makes the process streamlined because you are buying it directly from the manufacturer.
If there are any issues, the product didn’t work, you want a refund; all you have to do is contact Revitol and have them sort it out for you. None of this ‘going through a third party’ thing where you have to wait for weeks on end while they diddle around trying to mediate a resolution and blame the user for its ineffectiveness.
I actually took myself through the buying process and it was a really simple two step system. Very user friendly.
So is Revitol Eczema Therapy Cream the real deal?
While I have not personally used this product I have certainly done some digging and found so many positive reviews and an almost eerie lack of bad ones. Believe me, I have tried to find them and I’ve come up with nothing!
So in short, yes as far as creams go, this home eczema treatment is at the very least creating some dramatic results in certain individuals. The ingredients colloidal oatmeal and ceramides are true warriors for the eczema prone skin and for me this really leaves no question as to whether this product has the capacity to do some serious healing.
Additionally, the gentle nature of these natural ingredients are safe to use on children and babies, which is an aspect I find comforting.
As always, test the product on small inconspicuous areas first. Even with natural products, the skin of an eczema sufferer is primed to react to any foreign substance, even water at times.
