Improvement is likely to show after 2 weeks of continuous use. Of course, everyone is different and may respond to our products differently. Some see encouraging results in just a few days, others may take longer. For severe cases of eczema, improvements may take much longer. What we need to understand is that eczema is a chronic condition, and it takes time to repair damaged skin. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a quick fix.

This product should be used as needed at the area where itching occurs. The hydrating cream should be used daily to moisten skin and gradually repair skin barrier. These two products work in synergy, and we see best results when the two are used together.
If I purchase both the Hydrating Cream and the Calming Cream, how should I use them?
The calming cream should be used as needed at the area where the red rash or dry patches are, or wherever the itching and irritation occurs. Unlike steroid containing cream, this product is safe for repeated use. The hydrating cream should be used daily whether the itching is there or not. One proposal would be to apply hydrating cream once in the morning and once before bed time; and apply the calming cream whenever the itching occurs. For very dry, scaly skin, additional applications are recommended. Both products are very gentle and safe, they can be applied on face and on babies.

Yes. Our key focus is on baby eczema, however we believe our eczema natural care series may be suitable for adults with mild eczema as well.

Additionally, it may take longer for an adult to see signs of improvement.
How is LEMYKA's hydrating cream different from the common moisturizers on the market?
Common moisturizers on the market such as Aquaphil often contain high levels of petrolatum. This long chain hydrocarbon material has a waxy feel to it. People often ask why their skin is still dry after removing a thick greasy ointment. Eczema patients often have extremely dry skin and need a high quality moisturizer that will gradually and continuously replenish water to the skin. At LEMYKA, we understand skin science and can provide this service. With time, the difference in skin texture with show.
LEMYKA's product do not contain steroids. How are you different from steroid containing products?
Steroids may quickly reduce inflammation, however they cause skin atrophy and make the skin more prone to environment irritants, therefore lead to more flare ups, leave alone other potential side effects such as growth retardation. At LEMYKA, we put in special effort to make steroid free products. Our objective is to restore skin barrier, soothe itching, and help our customers to minimize eczema flare ups. Once you start to see skin improvement, it is likely to stay.
Does LEMYKA's steroid free eczema series work only on babies' eczema?
LEMYKA steroid free natural eczema series offers natural itch relief and is primarily designed for babies and young children with eczema, however, these products also work well on baby dry skin. They can be applied on babies with itchy ears or itchy buttocks. They offer relief for dry and itchy skin due to hives or contact dermatitis.
Does the Eczema Flare Defense Calming Cream contain steroids?
LEMKA Natural Cream is 100% steroid free. Over 97% of the ingredients are of natural origin. This product is designed for infants, babies and children with eczema, skin rash, and atopic dermatitis. It contains flavonoids and alkaloids, each of which possess anti-itching and anti-inflammatory functions. Although steroids may quickly relief itching, the symptoms are likely to return. Repeated use of steroids or long term use may lead to skin atrophy. As a result, your baby's skin will become more prone to irritants causing flare-up's to increase. Steroids are also associated with other side effects such as loss of bone density, skin irritation, or acne. In comparison, it takes about 2weeks of continuous use of LEMYKA's steroid-free calming cream to show skin improvement. However, such improvement is likely to stay. Furthermore, LEMYKA's natural calming cream is natural, safe and gentle to the delicate skin of babies.
Many "gentle skin care" products contain petrolatum. Why are LEMYKA products petrolatum free?
Petrolatum is commonly used in children eczema topical products. Studies show that petrolatum prevents trans-dermal water loss. This long train hydrocarbon material simply acts as skin occlusion. However, it does not improve skin texture. Most eczema patients have very dry skin, because their skin is scratched, damaged and cannot retain water efficiently. Once the waxy petrolatum is removed, people often find their skin is still dry. LEMYKA's eczema product line functions very differently. LEMYKA's natural eczema creams help to replenish water to skin and over time our customers find their skin become softer and smoother. Furthermore, petrolatum is a petro-chemicals that might be contaminated with harmful chemicals including carcinogens.
Why are natural & organic skincare products preferred?
It has been estimated that over 10,000 chemicals are currently used in personal care products. Safety and long term toxicity of many of these chemicals are still not known. Furthermore there are chemicals known to be harmful to human body or known skin irritant. These chemicals should be avoided in any skincare products. There are increasing numbers of products on the market labeled "ORGANIC", which in reality contain such chemicals. Just because there are high percentage of the ingredients in these products are organic certified, it does not mean the product overall will not irritate skin. Customers should be aware of what kind of chemicals may cause problems to the skin and the body . We've listed some commonly used chemicals that we believe are unhealthy to our skin therefore exclude them from our products. There are still more to be evaluated. In addition, we are highly selective with the natural ingredients used in our skincare products to ensure that they are safe, beneficial and non-irritating to our skin and body.
