Great product Review by

We found this product was very helpful for or child's eczema. It helps her immune system not to react so much. We mixed it into yogurts each day and was happily consumed.

No more waking up at night Review by

My 2-year-old son has eczema and he used to scratch a lot during a night time. He had been taken Ethical probiotic since he was one month old to support his eczema but did not help him much. I used Inner health for kids over a year but it did not really help for eczema. Then I found this and switched to this product and it works really well. He doesn't scratch much as he used to. I am so happy about this product.

Adult taking eczema shield Review by
  • star

I know this is for breastfeeding mothers, but both my sister (50) and I (34) suffer from quite severe adult eczema. For her it worked immediately and very well, for me it's been a longer process and it's very hard to say if it's actually the pro-biotics working or not, given that my eczema tends to flare up and recede over and over. What I will say, is that the angry red eczema on my forehead is nowhere near what it was about a month ago, and the eczema on my hands is now nearly non-existent. I want to say it is because of eczema shield, but I've had this happen before without any obvious cause. So, I will keep taking it and report back again after another bottle. But, it does seem to have an effect on adults too.

My daughter's eczema is FINALLY under control! Review by
  • star

My youngest daughter has had severe eczema since she was a small baby and after consulting with many specialists and trying numerous remedies that didn't help in the slightest, I discovered the recommendation to use probiotics. I bought a bottle of Ethical Nutrients Eczema Shield and by the time the bottle was finished her eczema had cleared! Now, if she gets a flare-up of eczema I give her this and it halts it in its tracks everytime.

Very good Review by
  • star

My 6mths old son had eczema since he was about 3mths old and after 2 months of taking this and eliminating dairy from his diet, we've seen a huge improvement. He no longer scratches and just gets slightly dry skin and you can't even tell that he was a baby who was suffering from eczema.

14 month old with eczema Review by
  • star

Great great great stuff. Our 14 month old had rather bad eczema behind he knee and elbow crease and this really helped clear it up. Saw results in 3-4 days. Super happy.

Effective it is! Review by
  • star

It all started as hormonal rash then proceeded to eczema when my son was only six weeks old. One of the chemist suggested to try this and I started taking it- since my son was breastfeeding that time. It took about 6 weeks for the eczema to completely disappear. Continued for another 2 months and my son's skin now is absolutely eczema free! Just the regular skin moisturization and no more diet restrictions unlike before.

Great for eczema! Try this!!! Review by

This is excellent! Have seen a huge improvement on my daughters skin after using this a few weeks. Am buying our second bottle.

unfortunately it didn't work for us Review by

I have a 5 month old baby with eczema. I have used this product for a more than a month now and I have not seen her skin improving. I really wanted this product to work.
I will continue using it

It worked for us too Review by
  • star

There's a university of otago double blind randomised control trial that showed this worked when given to pregnant women. While my family missed that window with our kids, I gave it to my one year old and four year old. It took a few months to kick in, but the eczema is gone, completely. My four year old had had eczema since a six month old, and the one year old was just starting to develop it. As an adult I also took it - and it may have helped a bit, but nothing like on the kids. Well worth a shot, and stick at it for a few months. One bottle is enough to know if it'll work or not. We sprinkled it on the kids weetbix every morning - they didn't even know it was there. While $40 might seem like alot - we used to spend more than that on moisturisers, bath oils, creams, etc, etc, etc.
