Get to Know Us
April Bell, Founder My story begins back in Junior High when I first began noticing dry skin patches. It wouldn’t be until the latter years of high school that I would receive the diagnosis of eczema. The patches would appear on my upper inner thighs, forearms and legs. At that time, there was virtually no relief other than Eucerin, an extremely thick, non-pliable cream. In 1999 after many years of frustration I decided to start making my own lotion using Shea Butter in hopes of finding a manageable cream. Over time I began to see the dry patches become fewer and fewer, until they simply became non-existent. My youngest son was diagnosed with eczema during his 6th grade year. His bouts required the use of a steroid cream. Once the steroid healed the condition we made sure to apply my cream after every shower. Over time his bouts became fewer and fewer. Both of us have remained free and clear for many years now. While there is no known cure for this condition, there is relief.
My goal is to aide others in finding relief from an otherwise common condition affecting millions world wide.
