Review: Inlight Organic Ecz-Easy Ointment

Inlight Organic Skincare Ointments
UPDATE - this product has been discontinued, other ointments are available, the Turmeric & Calendula Relief Balm may be of interest

Inlight Organic Skincare is an award winning brand offering natural products free any synthetic ingredients and preservatives. The range has been developed by Dr Mariano Spiezia, medical doctor, homeopath and herbalist. I accepted an offer from Inlight to review a product and I chose to review the Organic Ecz-Easy for eczema. It's probably fair to say that I imagine I'm not the only person with eczema who is always searching for the holy grail product. We are on a constant mission to tame our inflamed skin once and for all. At the moment I alternate between Balmology Comfort Balm and Salcura. These work extremely well in managing my eczema so I am judging Ecz-easy against these two products. 

Ecz-easy has a very interesting ingredient list with olive oil, sunflower oil, castor oil, beeswax, evening primrose oil, black cumin, marigold, carrot, plantain, mallow, lavender, liquorice, chickweed, burdock, turmeric, patchouli, jojoba & rose oil. This certainly is a formulation with anti-inflammatory, anti-bacterial and healing properties. The scent of this ointment is intriguing and reminds me of our spice cupboard, a strong herbal scent with top notes of black pepper and lavender. I asked my family to take a sniff and it did receive mixed reviews so on that basis it's a love it or hate it scent. The consistency of this ointment is soft but not thick like a balm and turns oily on contact with skin. I find it sinks into quickly and without a greasy residue. I have not noticed any staining on my clothes.

I currently have a long standing flare up of eczema across my chest and the area around my bra strap has been driving me bonkers with itchiness. From first application I noticed I was not scratching and with continual use the itching virtually disappeared. The condition of my skin and eczema has improved and redness has greatly reduced. The first couple of weeks I used Ecz-easy twice a day and then reduced the amount of usage to test whether my skin was reliant on the ointment. I still have some visible eczema but I am coping with less applications of the cream which I judge to be a good sign of how well the ointment is working for me. This patch of eczema is stubborn and nothing makes it disappear but I am happy that Ecz-easy takes away the desire to scratch. I am going to continue using this ointment and hopefully my skin will keep improving or at the least remain under control.
