Baby Acne in Newborn Soothed(See Picture Sidebar →)
“I wanted to write to let you know how happy we are with your product. Our newborn son Camden had flawless skin when he was born. At about 5 weeks he began to develop some baby acne on his face. Soon thereafter the acne began to dry out and his skin became extremely dry and flaky (with almost a crust forming in some areas). In addition, he would suck on his hands and rub them on his face, making his cheeks and chin very chapped and red. I grew very concerned because I knew that because he was a newborn I was limited to what products I could use (products with harmful chemicals, fragrance, etc). I was worried that the condition was uncomfortable for him, and we were desperate to correct it. I was introduced to “Emily” and was relieved that the product was all natural. Within a week of twice daily applications, his skin improved dramatically. Everyone who had seen him before commented on how much it had improved. Because he was born in winter, and the air is so dry in our home, I continue to apply it as a preventative measure. Camden also seems to find the application soothing! As a new parent, I didn’t think I had an option to safely treat a skin condition on our infant son. I had been advised by other mothers that because their (babies’) skin is so sensitive, you have to let a condition like his run its course. I am extremely grateful that we discovered “Emily” and would highly recommend it to others!”

Toddler Eczema Unresponsive to Many Products(See Picture Sidebar →)
“My son has had eczema since birth, it covered about 70% of his body. As he grew into a toddler he was constantly itchy. We used products to help control the itch and try to give him some relief. Every product we use did little for him. We had tried ...(4 big brand creams) ..., Petroleum jelly, hydrocortisone and ...(OTC allergy medicine)... daily. We began using Emily’s Skin Soother Salve and soap and instantly (within 2 days) noticed results. The eczema we were trying to clear up for 18 months was gone in 2 weeks. We now monitor his skin, we use the soap daily and salve when areas begin to reappear. Our son is much happier now-what a difference!” (see pictures sidebar)

Extremely Awful Case of Eczema--Such a Difference!!(See Picture Sidebar →)
“My daughter from birth had a extremely awful case of eczema. Olivia's face was extremely sensitive, it was constantly red and raw. I tried many different products that didn't seem to have much effect. My mother was watching the news one night and heard about "Emily's Cream". We decided to give it a try. Four years later we are still using the cream, ( both the regular and lavender). It has made such a difference in our lives and i would recommend this product to any one! I recently got a tattoo and have been using myself on the tattoo. It is an amazing product and i am so thankful for it!!!!!!............... Thanks Again A Very Happy Mom!” (see pictures sidebar)

Toddler's Painful Itchy Eczema Clear After Emily(See Picture Sidebar →)
“My son has had eczema since he was a small baby. It was pretty bad for his first year or so and then seemed to go away. Soon after his second birthday, he started cutting his two year molars and the eczema came back full force on the back of his legs, and a little on his arms and face. It was bad enough that I had people asking him if he had been injured. We went on a trip out of the country for a few weeks and by the time we got back he was in horrible condition. I didn't expect anything to get rid of it, but I just wanted some relief for his dry, itchy, painful skin and nothing seemed to be working.
I went onto a message board where moms discuss natural solutions to ailments and things around the home. I saw a post where someone asking about solutions to childhood eczema and they suggested Emily Skin Soothers products and told a bit about the background of your company. I knew I had to try it and ordered some that night.
Within a few days of using the product, my son's skin was much smoother and he was not constantly scratching behind his leg. He was also no longer getting up in the middle of the night from the discomfort. I was so happy to see that my baby was no longer in pain! It stayed red for a while, only because the skin was healing, but after about a month his skin was normal again!
I can't thank you enough for creating this product and helping my child!” (see pictures sidebar)

Emily Helps baby Acne in Just 4 Days (not weeks or months)(See Picture Sidebar →)
“My 7-wk old daughter developed baby acne. Her doctor told me that there is nothing that we could do but to just wait until it goes away (which could take weeks or even months). I wasn't just going to sit at home and do nothing about it. So I went online and searched for baby acne treatment. I came across Emily's product review. I thought I should give it a try and see it if works. And I am thankful because it really works. It's a miracle! I've only been using it for 4 days and my daughter's face has cleared up. I already recommended it to family and friends.” (see pictures sidebar)

Lesion and Rash Helped by Furry Friend in Days(See Picture Sidebar →)
“I used the product for a skin rash on my Labrador's front leg. The rash started as a small lesion and spread to about 2 inches around. The fur in the area had fallen out and the rash looked open and sore. I applied antibacterial ointment to prevent infection, but it did not assist in healing. My vet had recommended this product and gave me a sample to try. Within 3 or 4 days of 2 apps/day, results were noticed. The rash began to shrink and heal. about 4 days after that, the fur began to grow back. Now approximately 4 weeks later it is just about fully healed. I must admit, however, I have reduced applications to once every other day for the last week or so. Overall, the product seemed to work great and it contained no harmful ingredients, which gave me piece of mind when my dog tried to lick it off. I probably would have had even better results if I wrapped it also. ” (see pictures sidebar)

6 Wk Old with Severe Itchy Eczema Better in 3 Days with Emily(See Picture Sidebar →)
“I just want to say how impressed I am with your product. My son Dex developed both baby acne and eczema due to formula intolerance at 6 weeks old. His whole face broke out in a rash, it looked and felt like sandpaper. He would scratch his face at night in his crib and was miserable. A friend of mine suggested your Emily cream, having used it on her daughter. I bought the cream and used it twice a day and Im not kidding within 3 days it was completely gone! I can not believe how fast and how amazing this product works. If any moms out there need something for their little ones, this is the only thing you will ever need! Thank you so much.” (see pictures sidebar)

Infant with Seborrhea — 80–90% Improvement in Just 4 Days — Amazing.(See Picture Sidebar →)
“Our newborn infant son developed what we thought was baby acne at around day 10. When
his skin condition developed pussiness and scabs and moved from his forehead to his eyelids
and the area under his eyes and on the bridge of his nose, we became concerned and went
to see the pediatrician. The physician's assistant diagnosed it as "seborrhea dermatitis"; the
pediatrician concurred. The prescribed cure was "time" ("a few weeks and it should get better")
and a daily gentle cleansing with Selsun Blue (for its active ingredient of Selenium Sulfate). Our
son looked really bad but we were concerned with the detergents and chemicals in Selsun Blue
so we sought out some other gentler, more "natural" product. We contacted the folks at Emily's
and had a long conversation about the likelihood that something in the breast milk was causing
an adverse reaction resulting in the skin condition. We decided that my wife would eliminate
wheat to see if that would help. After hearing their reasoned view, we also opted to try Emily's
Diaper Skin Soother Plus. We tried it at first on a tiny thumb-sized spot on his forehead. After
a day, it seemed improved on that small area. The next day we slightly expanded the area;
amazingly, as the photos attest, there was an 80-90% overall improvement within four days. Just
amazing. Within a week it was virtually gone. At this point, as our son is 23 days young, my wife
has gone back to eating some wheat while we have continued an every other day application
of Emily's. It is obvious to us that the ingredients in the Emily's product helped restore a natural
ph balance or something to the skin. We are very grateful for the time they spent talking with us
but especially for the great product. It is sunflower oil, beeswax and four herbs. Nothing else.
Amazing. We are so glad we didn't go the Selsun Blue route and have to wait weeks for possible
results while subjecting our son's still developing organs to too many chemicals and detergents.
This was a great experience for us. I've already gone back to Cambridge Naturals and told the
general manager the story and plan to let the pediatrician's office at Harvard Vanguard know, as
well. I hope lots of families get to hear this story and can find great, safe relief for their baby with
Emily's.” (see pictures sidebar)

Emily Soothes and Smooths Dry, Red, Itchy Bumps on 5 Month Old's Skin(From a post on Emily Skin Soother's Facebook Page. See Picture Sidebar →)
“My 5 month old son had very dry skin. His face would get very dry, red and itchy. He also had redness behind both knees. He had very dry bumps all over his body. I had tried various types of creams/powders and nothing seemed to help. I started using emily baby & adult skin soother several times a day on his skin and I noticed a huge difference. The redness disappeared and he doesn't scratch at it as much. His skin is much smoother. I am so happy to find an all natural product that works so well on babies. Thank you so much! ” (see pictures sidebar)

Severe Neck Eczema Due to Teething Much Better in 4 Days(See Picture Sidebar →)
“My son had quite bad eczema under his chin and on his neck due to teething. I had been using 1% cortisone cream with little success so i started looking online for natural products that help with eczema and I came across Emily Skin Soother. I'm so glad I ordered some, after two days my sons eczema had gone from angry red to light pink and by day four the eczema was almost gone! He still gets a flair up when he is cutting a tooth but the Emily Skin Soother stops him from scratching and as soon as it's thru the eczema goes again. He has even started sleeping thru the night! What a fantastic product! Thanks so so much. I have attached a before photo and a photo taken
four days after using Emily Skin Soother.
Thanks again. ” (see pictures sidebar)

After 1 Year of Eczema, All Signs Gone with 1 Week of Emilys
(From a post on Emily Skin Soother's Facebook Page.)
“My 3yr old daughter suffers from a "minor" case of eczema. For a year now we have been trying everything, some products helped clear it, but a couple days later it would come back. I wish I could share a before and after photo, but her eczema is on her bottom and back of her legs, so I couldnt expose, but after 1 week of using your skin soother, all signs of eczema are gone! Thank you for making such a natural, safe product for people that are suffering from skin irritations, we are truly grateful.”

He has really sensitive skin and a couple patches of mild eczema on his back and 1 leg which is a non issue except for after swimming.

Infant with Whole Body Eczema Better Overnight
“ I noticed some lightly raised red rashes around the neck area of my two weeks old newborn. I thought it was a heat rash so I did nothing, about a week after it has spread all over his body. Immediately, I took him to his pediatrician and was told its dried skin/ eczema. The doctor said to stop using the A----o products but to use C------l lotion and wash, also to apply a pea size hydrocortisone. On my way back from the doctor's office I stopped by a natural store "natural kitchen" to purchase mothers milk and asked if they had something for dried skin, they recommended "Emily", I bought it but didn't use it until after a week of using C------l. My husband encouraged me to try it (Emily) out, I did only on a small spot, lo and behold, the next morning, only within 4hrs there wasn't any rashes on the area applied. I was so elated. Immediately, I checked out your website, got your number and called right away. Mike called me back but I couldn't talk much cos' I had to care for my baby.”

Emily Liquid Soap Used as Shampoo Alternative and Gets Rid of Dandruff
“ I had dandruff and wanted to use a natural shampoo. All the shampoos I researched had a few bad ingredients. Then I decided to use the Emily liquid soap as a shampoo. I was already using it on my newborn. It took almost 4 months for my hair to get used to a shampoo without conditioner and it was really tangled when I got out of the shower. But eventually my hair got used to it and now it's almost tangle free and I don't have dandruff anymore either.”

Years Long, Severe Dryness on Face Better in One Week with Super Dry Soother
“I have had severe dry skin on my face for a few years now. I have seen a dermatologist who recommended a couple of different products to use and none of them have worked. My husband works for Whole Foods and asked one of his coworkers if they could recommend anything to use and they told him about Emily dry skin soothers. He bought it and I have been using it for less than one week and already notice a great improvement. My skin doesn't feel like sandpaper like it always did and is improving more and more every day. It was always very embarrassing having the dry flakey skin and I am SO happy to have found this product! Thank you so much for making this!!!”

No More Eczema Flare-ups for 7 Year Old
(From a post on Emily Skin Soother's Facebook Page.)
“My grandaughter was diagnosed with eczema at age 7. Her feet were just covered with what looked like blisters and cracks. We did all the things the drs prescribed, but she still had flare-ups. She then got it on her hands, not fun ! I saw Emily on a news show and figured, it's all natural so couldn't hurt. It worked so well she never has a flare-up. Now when her hands or feet get dry or the skin starts to peel, she reaches for Emily. I use it for dry hands and feet in the winter, it's great. I love this so much, I gave jars to my neice (nurse practioner in a children's hosp) and my nephew ( intern in a Children's hosp). They use it every night to counteract all the hand washing and sanitizing they do during the day. We are happy customers!”

Acupuncturist's Patients Love Emily Products
“I am an acupuncturist and recommend Emily products to my patients all the time. My patients LOVE Emily Skin Soothers products, and I have seen them be effective for all sorts of skin issues - from dry skin to chronically itchy skin to eczema and dermatitis. I can tell week-to-week whether patients have been using Emily Skin Soothers because the difference in their skin tone is that noticeable. I love that I feel completely comfortable recommending Emily products to my patients, as I know they are safe, natural, and effective remedies. I have a number of mothers who like to use Emily soaps on their young children, because they are natural and gentle.

After Years of Ring Finger Dermatitis, “Amazing, My Finger is back to Normal!”
“For years I have suffered eczema-like symptoms on my ring fingers. I've tried everything over the years and nothing has helped, not even the prescription topicals my doctor recommended. A while ago on a visit to my holistic veterinarian for treatment for my dog, she had mentioned Emily's for his dry nose and any skin issues he may have. It worked wonderfully for him! So on my last trip to the holistic vet I asked her recommendation for my inflamed finger and she again recommended Emily's Baby and Adult Skin Soother. I figured I had tried everything else, and it had worked for my dog so why not give it a try. Well - all I can say is AMAZING!! The second I start to see inflammation I just throw some of the Emily's on and just keep reapplying throughout the day and before I know it, my finger is back to normal! I have recommended this product to my friends as well and they are having the same amazing results. Thank you so much to the wonderful people at Emily's for making s!
uch an amazing product!! Emily's will forever be in use in my household!!”

Cat with Itchy Ears from Allergies Dramatically Better in Days
“My cat, Iressa, has had an unknown allergy for several years. It appears to be seasonal and, while the antihistamines help, they have not been working as well lately. She's scratched raw spots into the backs of both ears.
A Facebook friend mentioned Emily Furry Friends Skin Soother, knowing I use as few chemicals on myself, the cat, and in the house. So, I ordered it.
After one day of applying the product to Iressa's ears I noticed she seemed much calmer and was scratching less. Now, after more than one week and applying it twice daily, her scratching has dramatically diminished. I am no longer giving her the antihistamines (which she hated taking). Her allergy is still present, but it is comforting to both Iressa and I that she isn't scratching continuously as this was a huge problem. The product has brought her great comfort.
I love that the product does not have a noticable scent. Cats are reluctant to have smelly things put on them. I love that it is safe for the cat (or dog) to consume since they lick everything that goes on them. The price is excellent. Customer service is excellent, and friendly.
I would definitely recommend this product to any pet owner....”

Seven Year Old with Severe Eczema Gets Amazing Results in Just 4 Days
“I am a licensed acupuncturist. I carry the Emily's Skin Soother products in my office and have had many great success stories, from help with simple dry skin to severe eczema.
The most recent great success was with a 7 year old girl with severe, dry, itchy eczema all over her body. She has had this condition since birth with very little success using other creams, ointments and medically prescribed treatments. After 4 days of daily application of the original Skin Soother, her skin is healed and she has stopped her constant scratching. After stopping the product for several days, the eczema has not returned. The parents are keeping it on hand to reapply at the earliest sign!”

Your Diaper Skin Soother is Amazing!
“My son, whose first birthday is today, has never suffered from severe diaper rashes. until last week! It was horrible, bright red with splotches that looked like the skin had burned. He was in SO much pain, screaming every time we changed his diaper. I tried several other diaper rash ointments (including big brand stuff and all-natural stuff) with no success, and I decided to give Emily's Diaper Skin Soother a try. I could tell it eased the pain immediately. I saw tremendous improvement within the first couple of days of use, and now 5 days later he's as good as new. Thank goodness he won't have a sore bum on his first birthday! I definitely plan on using this as a preventative ointment, as well. And I'm so glad it's cloth diaper safe!”

Emily is The Only Thing I Use on Dry Lips and Eyelids from Eczema
“I have had eczema and otherwise very sensitive skin my whole life. I was tired of using steroid products which hardly worked and were ultimately bad for my skin, plus I started getting dry irritated skin on my lips and eyelids. A friend send me a link to the Emily products, because of the name, admittedly! I jumped on the dry skin smoother and have never looked back. It's the only thing I use on my face, now, and I use it in combination with other products on the rest of my body. It is the only product I use on my lips as every other balm makes me break out, and the price is absolutely unbeatable as a pot lasts months. Thank you Emily and team!”

Hot Spots and Chewed Tail: "Nothing else we tried -we tried EVERYTHING - even made a dent in the issue."
“Our 6 year old Great Dane developed a condition called 'Happy Tail Syndrome' where the skin on the end of his tail split open and became red and irritated. He refused to leave it alone and after a while he had developed a hot spot on his tail that nothing seemed to help. We started using the Furry Friend Skin Soother and within a couple of days the area had become much less red and inflamed. He is continuing to improve. We also used the product on some other areas that were irritated from the cold weather and they were completely cleared up within a week or so. Nothing else we tried - and believe me, we tried EVERYTHING - even made a dent in the issue. ”

“Best Diaper Ointment on the Planet” Says Acupuncturist and Mom
“When my 2.5 year old son was itching from winter eczema, and the very expensive hypo-allergenic OTC product that used to work, stopped working, I reached out to other herbalists about how I can help my son without using a sesame based salve because he deathly allergic to sesame. Several practitioners told me to try Emily Skin Soothers. After have wonderful success using unscented Emily Skin Soother (the one in the green bottle) we anxiously awaited the release of Emily Diaper ointment. As soon as it was released we used it on our son with spectacular results. Soon thereafter, I brought the Emily line of products into my office to sell for my patients replacing another brand that was sesame oil based. After selling the diaper ointment to several patients for their babies severe diaper rash I hereby proclaim that Emily Skin Soother Diaper is the BEST diaper ointment on the planet. Several of my patient's baby's bottoms were so red, with bleeding skin peeling off and Emily diaper ointment is the only product that not only healed it, but then prevented it from coming back. It is the only diaper ointment that we use with our son, that I sell from my office, and on my websites.”

Furry Friend Helps With Chafing, Scratches and Scrapes
“Our Greyhound, Zeppelin, has had a really rough go as far as his skin is concerned. As a result of being caged on a racing track and constantly rubbing against the cage, he came to us completely bald under his belly, chest, neck and back legs. He has to wear sweaters and jackets when it's cold outside, and they sometimes chafe his joints. We used "Emily for Pets" and I noticed he didn't seem as bothered by the rubbing as much. It prevented new rubbing, and if he licked it off, I had the piece of mind that it wasn't harmful to his system.
I've also used it on our Border Collie's feet. She constantly scratches and scrapes up her feet when she runs through the woods. A little "Emily" on her feet, and she seems to feel much better. Way better than the sting of Peroxide, and I feel better that it's not harmful if she licks it off. Plus, it's been great for my hands, too! ”

Super Dry Helps with Dry Skin from Cockayne Syndrome
“Aaron has Cockayne Syndrome or for short CS. He is less than four foot and only weighs 37 pounds. What is Cockayne you ask? Well, it's a rare life threaten disease that he was diagnosed with the age of 8. The medical definition for Cockayne is a premature ageing disorder that leads to a shortened life expectancy. The doctors said his life expectancy would be 12 years of age. So far, to our great surprise, Aaron will be 25 this coming May.
With Emily's Super Dry Smoother has helped Aaron with his dry skin. It has relieved the dry itchy patches that he would scratch raw. Thank you so much for developing this product to help my son.

Strange Rash on Shins Gone Before the Dermatologist Appointment
“I began to develop strange rashes on the shins of my legs that started out with some slight itching and soon began to spread rapidly. I literally had no clue whatsoever what I was dealing with and thought it could be anything, including skin cancer.
The skin condition kept getting worse until I went to see my general practitioner who assured me it wasn't cancer. He suggested it was probably dermatitis, psoriasis or eczema, and that I should try some moisturizer and go see a dermatologist.
I began using Emily Skin Soother on the rash that same day. By the time I went to see the dermatologist, my skin had almost completely healed. I never bothered to use the prescription given to me by the dermatologist and now, only weeks later, thanks to Emily Skin Soother, my skin is 100% healed.”

“My daughter is cloth diapered so there arent a ton of diaper cream options for us. Occasionally she gets rub marks on her thighs and it gets pretty raw and irritated.

I have only been using the diaper cream for less than 24 hours, but I already see a huge improvement on my daughter! I cant wait to try the soap and lotions on my older daughter who has eczema and has been itching away!”

Sore on Dog's Elbow Would Not Go Away Until Using Emily Furry Friend
“My dog, rocky, had a sore on his elbow that just wouldn't not go away until we began using your special cream. We applied it regularly for several weeks and he is as good as new. It was easy to use...not too greasy...and fragrance free. I would recommend this cream and would definitely use it again.”

Significant Difference in My Skin. Feels Softer and Looks Great.
“Being a very fair-skinned person with sensitive skin and living in South Florida for 40 years, I have constantly had skin issues. Hives, rashes, ingrown hairs, acne, porokeratosis, actinic keratosis, skin growths and even squamous cell carcinoma. I have tried several products, prescription and non-prescription, suggested by dermatologists. These products were very expensive, and yielded no results. My acupuncturist suggested Emily's products. Being leery of course, I thought I would try yet another product. After a few months, I noticed a significant difference in my skin. It wasn't near as agitated and feels softer and looks great. It is now part of my daily regiment. I would highly recommend Emily's products.”

Nothing Helped Daughter's Eczema for 14 Years but Emily Helps Tremendously
“I can not begin to explain my happiness in discovering Emily's cream. The other day, I went into Whole Foods and asked someone for a cream for my daughters' skin. For the past 14 years we have tried everything to bring her some relief. Many things were prescription (steroids, which I hated to use) and many over-the -counter creams, and none of them helped at all. Not only did they not help, her skin could not seem to tolerate any of the creams we tried. They either stung terribly or made her itchier. So I have constantly been on the lookout for new things to try, but to no avail. Just a few nights before finding Emily's, my daughter was explaining that if there was just someone who understood how hard it was to deal with eczema, maybe that person would be able to help her skin issues. When I went into Whole Foods with my request, the woman brought me Emily's cream and explained that it was made by a father whose own daughter suffered from eczema. This seemed to be a sign!! Emily's cream not only doesn't sting or irritate her skin, but it relieves the dryness and helps calm her skin down tremendously. The more we use it, the better it gets. Thank you, thank you, thank you. ”

Severe Eczema from Unhealed Bug Bites: "Emily works much better than any other creams I've used."
“I have rather severe eczema patches on my arms that were caused by insect bites that never quite healed. Dry weather also triggers my eczema. I tried both the original soother and the super dry and they have helped to alleviate the severity of the eczema. My skin is much smoother after a few weeks of daily use and I'm confident the soothers will heal the patches completely soon. Emily works much better than any other creams I've used, including those with hydrocortisone. My toddler has a rash on his belly that the Diaper Plus has also helped tremendously. Thank you Emily Skin soothers! ”
Emily Liquid Soap Shines Diamonds Too!!
“Being in a retail store, I love opening products and trying them out. When we first received the Emily products in store, we opened the Lavender Skin Soother and I became hooked! I now have a jar at home by my bed and a jar by my desk at work.
Recently we ran out of hand soap in our store bathroom so I opened a bottle of Emily's Liquid Soap to replace the empty bottle. Not only did my hands feel clean and soft, my diamond engagement and wedding rings sparkled as if they were professionally cleaned! At first I thought that maybe my rings were just dirty after working in the store basement, but after washing my hands a few more times, I realized it was the Emily's Liquid Soap! Now whenever I wash my hands, I cant help but smile when I look down and know that not only my hands are clean, my so are my rings! Its also nice to know that I can keep my jewelry clean and sparkly without using harsh chemicals.”

Hand Eczema: Normal Skin for the First Time in Years
“I purchased Emily Skin Soother to use on my son who is 12 years old and has had problems with ecezma on his hands for years. We have tried numerous prescription medications with only slight improvement. After using Emily Skin Soother for only 1 week the ecezma on his hands greatly improved. After several weeks we are seeing normal skin for the first time in years and the spots that we have been treating no longer itch him. I was so impressed with the results that I started putting some on my feet to soften the rough spots, this product has really made a difference.”
– Anne Marie Amello
Itchy Baby Able to Sleep with Relief from Emily's
“I heard about your skin soother product through my child's
daycare when they observed that we have had much difficulty with my daughter
being uncomfortable because she was itching so much. Based on their own
personal experiences, they recommended that I try the product and gave me
the website. I ordered it right away and have been completely satisfied!
My daughter has eczema and several seasonal allergies as well as
unidentified allergies that cause her to itch around her neck, legs, arms
and torso (poor thing). Since she was a baby, I have been through my fair
share of Eucerin and Cetaphil. Nothing works like Emily Skin Soothers to
ease her discomfort. We have suffered through many sleepless nights and
nothing has given her relief until now. Thanks for ending the suffering!! I
even use it for skin issues caused by my thyroid disorder. I OWE YOU!!!”

Amazing Results After 2 Years of Hand Dermatitis and Many Failed Treatments
“I have been going to doctors for 2 years to treat dermatitis on my hands (sometimes had bandaids on every finger) My acupuncturist suggested your skin soother and it honestly began to work overnight! Two weeks later, I have one small patch that is almost gone....truly amazing!”

Parents Nearly Forget Baby Even Had Eczema After Using Emily Products
“My baby boy had eczema and I tried everything to clear it up. Finally I just decided that we just needed to wait for Alex to outgrow it (like the pediatrician said) and I tried to keep it under control somewhat. Then we had his 6 months pictures taken and my husband took one to work for his desk. A very sweet coworker remarked how cute Alex was and asked if he had just had spaghetti. Ok, it was time to try something new! I found Emily on a What To Expect message board and emailed the company to ask a few questions. Mike the founder actually emailed me back that afternoon! Now months later I am a believer and have passed the Emily site along to 2 other new mothers. I meant to email Mike back sooner to let him know about our success but it is truly a case of out of sight, out of mind! Emily Skin Soothers cleared up my son's eczema in a week and it has been gone for so long now that I forgot about it. It is truly amazing and I wish I had found out about it sooner! I still put a little on his cheeks every night just in case but the eczema is COMPLETELY gone! Thank you so much for such a wonderful product!”

Runner Uses Emily to Help With Chafing and Blisters from Training for a Marathon
“I'm running my first marathon this year--the NYC Marathon--as part of the American Cancer Society's DetermiNation Team. Training in the summer is brutal--like running in a sauna. On one of my first training runs on a blistering 90 degree morning, I came back with chafe marks on my arms and legs and blisters on my feet. Before my next run I rubbed down my upper arms, legs and feet with Emily's Skin Soother and lo and behold, problem solved! Slathering myself with Emily's is now part of my training routine.”

After Several Other OTC Brands, Amazing Results with Emily
“My son has mild eczema, mostly in his diaper area, inner thighs, and a little on his cheeks and nose. I tried several over-the-counter brands, they would clear it up partially after a few days, but it always came back just as bad and didn't stay gone for long. Someone mentioned to me about Emily Skin Soother and how it had helped one of their friend's children who was using prescription creams for eczema. It was worth a shot, as I had tried everything else. The day I tried it, he had a pretty bad eczema rash on his inner thighs and all in his diaper area. I put some on him at bedtime, woke up the next morning to no bumps, just a little redness. After using it all day, by bedtime it had completely gone away. I'm sure had his eczema rash been worse, it would have taken an extra day or so, but still amazing results! We have another little baby due this January and we plan on using Emily Skin Soother from the start.
Thank you for an amazing product that truely has the most amazing results I've seen!”

Pediatric Nurse Uses Emily on Her Own Child and Recommends it to Others with Eczema
“I have been using Emily's on my son for the last 3 years. He started having exzema as a baby, (mainly patches) and this product was the only thing that would clear his symptoms! Worked better than his prescription.
I have been a pediatric nurse for 20 years. I recommend Emily's to anyone I see struggling with exzema or dry skin.
Wonderful! Thank you!”

Super Dry Helps Night Time Dryness of Psoriasis
“Psoriasis... flaking is my condition. My father suffered from this, but his was only on his hands. Mine is a patch on my face. It gets worse and larger with stress. I keep the Emily Super Dry at my bed. It sooths me during the night when my skin dries.”

Cracked Bleeding Nipples Remarkably Better After Diaper Plus: New Mother Able to Return to Breast Feeding
“I am a nursing mother and for the first 10 weeks of breast feeding I was in excruciating pain every time I nursed my daughter. My skin was raw, red, cracked, and bleeding. I had tried everything to heal my skin. I used specially compounded prescription ointment, a vinegar wash, prescription strength cortisone cream, consulted two doctors and a lactation consultant, and was even treated for thrush. Nothing worked and my condition kept getting worse. The pain was so great that, much to my disappointment, I thought I was going to have to give up nursing.
My lactation consultant recommended that I try using Emily Diaper Skin Soother Plus to see if by chance it would be the magic bullet I needed. I decided to give it a try thinking that it would have the same result as all the other treatments.
To my great astonishment, after only two days of using Emily's Diaper Skin Soother Plus, my skin was remarkably better! I was a light pink color compared to the bright, raw red from before and the cracks were beginning to heal. After just one week of using the product I was able to nurse pain free and my skin had returned to its normal, healthy color. I could not believe it! Nursing had turned from a dreaded, painful experience to one of bonding and calm. I can now give my daughter the nutrients she needs as a result of Emily Diaper Skin Soother Plus and I will be forever grateful for that gift! Thank you for creating such a wonderful product that is all natural, safe, and effective. ”

Instant relief!! Amazing!!
“I discovered Emily's Skin Soother (the original formula) when my son was about a year old. (He is 5 now) He suffered from eczema and really irritable skin. He found instant relief! After about a week of using it daily his eczema was gone and his skin was clear from any irritations. YAY!
We love the bar soap but then the Emily's liquid soap was introduced and we now use both (I use it for shampoo and as a shaving cream). We just had another baby (7 months old) he has wonderful skin, but we still use the Emily's soap on him because I know it is pure and can feel good about using it.
We were so happy when the cloth diaper friendly diaper balm was introduced, after 7 months of cloth diapering our newest addition, any sign of redness we apply Emily's diaper balm, the redness is gone by the next diaper change, amazing!! ”

Hand Eczema – Has Never Felt Better
“I was ready to give up on trying to find the best skin soother for my extremely dry hands. I felt so uncomfortable, especially during the winter when they would crack and bleed. Not to mention, the eczema was itchy and unsightly. I heard about Emily Skin Soothers so I thought I would give it a try. Immediately after I used it, my hands already felt better. I could finally make a fist without feeling like my skin was stretched to the max. I was already seeing my eczema subside. Today, my hands have never felt better. I don't go a day without using my Emily Skin Soothers.”

Head to Toe Eczema Gone. "Thrilled with the Results"!!
“I was horrified when my 5 month old's beautiful skin broke out from head to toe with eczema. I was even more horrified when he was put on two different steroid creams. After doing research I came upon Emily's Skin Soother. I started using the skin soother, diaper rash soother, and liquid soap on him. He has not had a bad flare up since (it's been 3 months).
I am able to rest assured that what I put on his little body is natural and gentle. I am thrilled with the results and will continue to use the product on my son!”

Emily Bar Soap and Miraculous, Life Changing Results
(From a post on Emily Skin Soother's Facebook Page.)
I have been using Emily Skin Soothers Bar Soap for
about six months now and it is such a relief to be
able to take a shower or wash my face with a bar of
soap in my hand. I had had a trigger from an unknown
substance where other soaps felt like firecrackers
going off in my hand and my skin all over was bright
red and itchy. I was desperate to find a remedy and
the local allergist could not help either. So I went
to Native Sun Health Foods in Jacksonville and the
herbalist there said to try Emily Skin Soothers bar
soap. And what a miracle. I have no feeling (like a
tingle when it starts) that I will have another
attack as long as I keep using this soap and have
ordered ten more bars. Thank you, Mike, you have
changed my life!!”
Cradle Cap Better in 4 Days with Soap and Soother
(From a post on Emily Skin Soother's Facebook Page.)
“I just wanted to let you know that I found a new use for ur products! My son had cradle cap so I would put emily skin soothers in lavender on, comb his scalp and then rinse the flakes with emily skin soothers soap. After about 4 treatments his scalp was back to normal. I tried using baby oil first as directed but it did not help, it just left my baby's hair very oily :( Thank you for helping us out again!”

Soothes Itchy Rash on Torso from Hep A
“I got Hepatitis A in China last year. One of the less annoying, but still uncomfortable symptoms is a skin rash around the torso. It comes and goes every other month or so. The rash is on the surface with bumps, but no open sores. I've tried everything over the last year -- olive oil, creams, lotions and nothing relieves the itch around the waist -- until I broke out my jar of Emily's for Baby & Adult Skin. I had brought it with me to China and only found it again recently. I applied it to the affected area and the itch is soothed so I'm not driven crazy while at work. And there is no smell or stickiness or discoloration of my clothes after application. Now this round of rash-around-the-waist is nearly over. Thanks again for making a wonderful product.”
Effect on Baby Acne and Sensitive Skin Seen in One Day
(From a post on Emily Skin Soother's Facebook Page.)
“Thank you so much for the list of stores in new jersey. I know I will be stopping at one of them once i run out! You guys should be in babies r us because youre the only product that actually works and is safe! I found you guys while reading an article on babycenter.com. The article explained how cosmetic products are not regulated and listed the website cosmeticdatabase.com. I could not believe that all the products I was using (and was raised on) were listed a 5 out of 10 on the hazardous scale. I was so angry when I learned that the products that claim they are safe could potentionally cause harm to my newborn. That's when I looked at the list of products listed at a 0 out of 10 on the hazardous scale, found you guys and saw great reviews. I am so glad I ordered your soap, lotion and diaper rash cream. The lotion worked on my son in one use. He had bad baby acne (caused by having sensitive skin) that was drying up and flaking. After the first use his skin was no longer dry and that baby acne was not nearly as red. My husband even commented when he got home from work that day that our son looked cuter than the day before! Every other baby product that I tried on his skin just irritated it even more. So thank you for making a healthy product that really works! ”

Many Uses for the Whole Family
“I use emily skin soothers for mainly for my daughter. however, my husband & i have been using it as well for chapped fingertips. My daughter Kaylee is 6 years old, and since she was an infant, has had moderate eczema. While she has outgrown the severity of eczema, she still has very dry skin, and if not moisturized properly, she tends to itch it raw. Emily is part of her morning, mid-day and nightly routine. It is used now mostly on her lower area of her legs & ankles, however it is always used on various spots of her body whereever flare ups occur, like her lower back, face, etc. We rely on Emily to help keep the irritation at bay, and to lock her moisture on her skin. We will continue to use it because of its natural & safe ingredients, and because of the care & love of the product, thanks to Mike & Emily. Kaylee uses the Super Dry & the Diaper Skin Soother.
For myself, I have suffered from eczema on my fingertips due to acrylic nails, and even when I do not have acrylics on, my fingertips are still so dry due to constant handwashing. Emily tends to keep my fingertips soothed. My husband uses it for the same purpose. We use the Diaper Skin Soother.
I hope anyone interested in the product will give it a try. It has many uses, and it's great to take with you where ever you go ( just don't leave it in the car or anyplace hot ! )
Thanks Mike !
A loyal & happy Emily customer for many years ! ”

Fabulous Results on Dry, Flaking, Itchy Eyelids
“My daughter has very sensitive skin and had eczema as an infant, she is 7 now. She had been suffering with very dry and flaking eyelids that would at times be very itchy. Her eyelids would have a crusty appreance near her lashes and no amount of washing helped. My esthetician had recommended that I try Emily soap and Emily Skin Soothers. I was concerned to try any product so close to her eyes but really needed to find something to help her. I tried both and have found them to be fabulous! I love that there is no fragrance and they are all natural. She has started using the skin soother on her entire face not just her eyelids and I have even started using it on myself. Thank you for the Emily products!”
Acupuncturist Gets Rid of 'Sandpaper Hands' After Use of Super Dry
“Hi Mike! I thought you might find this story of interest. As you will recall I was going to make the 45 minute trip down to Great Barrington to buy my sister-in-law the Super Dry for her hands. Well, when I got there they had a tester open so I tried in on my sand papery dry hands, bought the product and went on my way.... By the time I got home that day, my hands were nice and soft, no longer like sand paper. So my sister-in-law will have to wait until I get another Super Dry for her. I am using it on my hands and arms, and really like the way it moisturizes! At this time of year its hard to keep the moisture in my hands with all the hand washing that I do at work, so I am really impressed with your product! Way to go Emily!!!”

Huge Difference in 5 Month Old's Dry, Red, Itchy Skin
“My 5 month old son had very dry skin. His face would get very dry, red and itchy. He also had redness behind both knees. He had very dry bumps all over his body. I had tried various types of creams/powders and nothing seemed to help. I started using emily baby & adult skin soother several times a day on his skin and I noticed a huge difference. The redness disappeared and he doesn't scratch at it as much. His skin is much smoother. I am so happy to find an all natural product that works so well on babies. Thank you so much!”
Acupuncturist Uses Emily on her Son and Patients for Eczema and Psoriasis
“I have used the baby and adult skin soother on my 4 year old son for several years. He used to get dry scaly patches that the pediatrician called eczema, even though they were not itchy. The skin soother cleared them up quickly. Then, last year, he went through a phase when he was licking his bottom lip and just underneath it constantly-- a nervous habit. The skin under his lip and into his chin was getting very red and chapped and sore. I was actually amazed at how quickly the skin soother helped that. It would often clear it up in a single night if I slathered it on right before sleep. He called calls it his "special lotion." It works much better than chapstick and vaseline (not to mention less goopy!) and doesn't burn like some other lotions.
I also have a patient with severe psoriasis. She is using the super dry soother and is thrilled with the results. She said that she first applies it and then rubs it off... it helps smooth off the flakes. Then she reapplies and leaves it on. She is amazed at how much smoother the patches are. And the itching is much less.”

Persistent Itching in the Nursing Home – Emily to the Rescue
“I have to let you know that I brought the jar of emily skin soother in to the nursing home that my mother is in to see if it would help with her persistant itching. We had tried EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My mother is almost 89 years old and has Alzheimer's type dementia. Her skin is most probably itchy due to her poor renal functioning, the time she spends in bed and her overall agitation and resistance to consistent physical care. Within this past week her itching has dramatically decreased and the rash that she had on the top of her back has disappeared! We are all very happy with emily!”
Within several days, our son's skin improved dramatically..
“Our son was diagnosed with eczema in October of 2009 when he was 5 months old. We were concerned with what that would mean for our little one: does it hurt, does it itch, will he grow out of it? We followed our doctor's advice and immediately cut out all scented skin care products and started using gentle, unscented soap and lotion exclusively. His skin was still red and irritated and we were becoming frustrated. My mother heard about Emily's Skin Soothers from a colleague at work whose daughter had used the products and had amazing results. We ordered a kit of the unscented products online that included the bar soap, liquid soap and soother. We ditched the drugstore products and began using Emily's at each bath and the soother at least twice a day. We immediately noticed a difference between Emily's products and the other lotions we'd tried: Emily's products had a natural fragrance (my husband compares it to a HealthFood store), a little bit of the soap (liquid and bar) goes a long way, and the Skin Soother went on more like a balm and slowly absorbed into our son's skin- protecting it from further dryness. Within several days, our son's skin improved dramatically and continued to improve over the next couple of weeks! We applied it everywhere: his face, under his chin, legs, tummy, back, etc... Our son is 15 months old now and Emily's continues to be part of our daily routine. His skin is beautiful, just like a child's skin should be! We feel good as parents knowing the products we use on our child are the absolute gentlest and safest available. We also have experienced excellent customer service. We place all of our orders online and had a concern once about an order. Mike Arsenault contacted us personally to make sure everything was OK! The quality, safety and effectiveness of Emily's Skin Soothers will keep our business for many years to come. Thank you!”
Natural Products Professional is a Fan and Recommends Emily Across Country
“Having worked in the field of nutrition as well as in the natural products industry for years, I was hard pressed to find a product to recommend for eczema and other skin irritations that seemed to be plaguing children and adults. I had researched what things could be done through nutrition to calm the skin over time, but there was nothing topical that seemed to work. I started to hear rave reviews of Emily products from colleagues and clients and recommended them to two friends of mine with small children, experiencing terrible eczema. I got calls from them both within days saying that all of the rough patches were nearly gone or completely gone and that their kids were soft as could be. Not only that, but one child was scarred from previous eczema flare-ups and the formula lessened the scars greatly after just a couple days of use. Since hearing this, I confidently recommend Emily products as I travel the country, for anyone suffering with any skin conditions. I'm a fan of the Lavender Soother for my hands, knees, elbows, sun damage, and anything else that may be dry or irritated. Smells beautiful and works like nothing else! Thanks Mike and Emily for creating products that provide such relief for so many!

Red Bottom Healed by the Next Morning
“i just wanted to say how happy i am with the diaper skin soother.
when i do have to use disposables for car trips - she always ends up
with a red bottom, with the soother it's healed by the next morning.
now i use it regularly as a preventative with my cloth diapers &
it's great that it doesn't effect the absorbency of the cloth diapers either.
it works great on mom too - i had a red itchy patch on my leg & rubbed some on & the itch & redness disappeared.
i was so happy with it i bought the liquid soap, which keeps my 8 week olds skin baby soft.
thanks for great natural products!”

Diaper Plus Works for Terrible Red Rash on 5 Months Old's Neck
“My poor 5 month old has had a terrible red rash on her neck since she was a couple of months old. I knew that it was not just irritation because it had a yeasty smell to it. I tried this new Emily's diaper skin soother (the orignial Emily's has always worked for me on other rashes so I already loved the brand), putting it on her after a bath for a few nights. In that short amount of time it cleared up the redness. Even though it is called "diaper" it is certainly useful for other areas! Thanks Mike for making this product! I am a true "Emily's" believer!”

Diaper Skin Soother Plus a Miracle for Red, Painful Fissures on Hands and Feet
(Translated from Spanish. Any errors in translation are our own)
“I am 59 years old and nine months ago I started having a problem with my skin. My hands and feet got very dry with a lot of itchiness and redness. Immediately I went to a skin specialist and they started treatment for palmar/plantar psoriasis. They did a biopsy and started treatment with cortisone creams and moisturizers. Nothing worked and as time passed more fissures and sores opened up on my hands and feet to the point that I became invalid: I couldn't walk because of the pain. My legs got swollen so I looked for professional help and once again more diagnostic work was done with various different diagnosis given. One said it was palmar/plantar atopic dermatitis, another dermatologist said it was eczema. Nothing or nobody could help or give me even a slight improvement, so I became very depressed.
But, I discovered the Emily products and I started to use them (Diaper Skin Soother Plus and Liquid Soap Soother). After only 3 days I only had 2 fissures on my right foot, I can walk and don't feel pain, the itchiness has gone down by 50% and my hands are almost completely healed. I only know that this is a miracle of God and I recommend Emily's products for whatever problems of the skin. May God bless this man so that he continues to discover remedies like these for the good of humanity.”

Super Dry a Minor Miracle for Severe Psoriasis: “...it has made a huge difference in my life!”
“I am writing to tell you of my experience with one of your products, Emily's Super Dry skin cream.
I have been dealing with severe psoriasis for 2 years. I went to see my dermatologist who confirmed the diagnosis, and he started by treating me with a mild medication that had no effect. Then he prescribed another medication that was much stronger, so much so that I could only use it for a month at a time and then had to take a break. I had to wrap my legs in saran wrap after applying the medication to make sure that it took effect. Then a coworker introduced me to Emily's Super Dry cream, which she got from her acupuncturist, who also happens to be the one who developed this product. I "lubed up" every day for 2 weeks when I realized that the psoriasis wasn't only looking better, but was less itchy, uncomfortable and unsightly. It was a minor miracle ! I continue to use this cream, and for the first time in a couple of summers, I can wear sandals without the embarrassing patches on my feet. Thank you so much for your wonderful product, it has made a huge difference in my life !”

3 Year Old With Extremely Sensitive Skin Rarely Gets Rashes Now
“My 3 year old son, Jaxon, has numerous allergies and extremely sensitive skin. He cannot use any products that contain fragrance, dyes, or chemicals on his skin, which is how I came across all natural Emily products. His skin used to constantly break out in rashes and blisters and he would pick and scratch at his skin, leaving it bleeding and raw. I have been using the Emily Unscented Skin Soother on his skin every day for almost a year. Now, he rarely breaks out with a rash or blisters. Recently, Mike asked me to sample the new Diaper Skin Soother Plus. When Jaxon broke out with a rash on his groin area last week, I used the Diaper Skin Soother and by the next day it was almost completely gone. The Skin Soother is wonderful for keeping his skin soft and clear and the Diaper Skin Soother helped to clear up a break out within a matter of a day. Thank you Mike for making these amazing skin care products, we never leave home without our jar of Emily!”
Diaper Skin Soother Plus for Adult Eczema in Warm Damp Areas
“My eczema has been at various times mild to severe. Emily Skin Soothers has been a tremendous help in keeping the dryness at bay, and I use it as an overall moisturizer after my bath or shower, applying it while skin is still damp. It relieves the scaliness and itching. The new formula (Diaper Skin Soother Plus) is especially good for warm damp areas, keeping perspiration from irritating inflamed skin. The two products together make it possible for me to cope with my eczema!”
Better Results After 1 Week of Emily Than 1 Month of Steroids
“Back in March I developed a rash on both of my legs from my ankles to my knees. I went to a dermatologist and was prescribe a steroid cream. After one month of using the steroid cream my legs has not improved very much plus it was getting real dry from the steroid cream. I bought the Emily Oil for the eczema on my face several months back and decided to give it a try on my legs since it worked so well for my face. I wasn't expecting anything because the skin on legs are thicker than the face. Within a week of using the Emily Oil my legs has cleared up 95%. Right now when I feel a flare up start I would put the Emily Oil on and it would calm my skin within a day or two. I am very happy to have accidentally stumble across this product at my local Health Food Store.”

Diaper Plus Great Results with Recurring Adult Yeast
“I have been struggling for almost a year with a recurring yeast infection/irritation. I have taken Diflucan pills and used creams; however, the yeast irritation would never completely go away. I tried adjusting my diet to eliminate sugars and wheat products but that proved to be difficult at times. I have extremely dry skin and use the mildest products for my clothes and for showering. Mike suggested that I try Diaper Skin Soother Plus because of its calming effects. I have been using it for approximately 6 weeks with great results and no side effects. I immediately got relief and continued to use it everyday for about a week. Now I use it at the first sign of an irritation and can unequivocably say that this product has done a remarkable job at calming this irritation and making me a lot more comfortable.”
Thank you, Mike!!

“My 14 month old daughter developed a fungal rash in the diaper area. My pediatrician told me to try a few different kinds of diaper rash creams. A month went by and her rash was still red and raw. The pediatrician then told me to try gynolotrim which is an adult yeast infection cream. I decided I did not want to use that on my 14 month old. I told Mike from Emily Skin's Soothers about it and he told me to try the new Diaper Skin Soother. So I did. The fungal and rash was gone in two days and the redness was gone after 4 days. The Diaper Skin Soother was amazing! We will be using this for any and all diaper rash issues that may come up.”

Eczema for Many Years... Emily Helps a Great Deal
“I have dealt with eczema on and off for many years. A while ago my mother told me about a product that was featured in her local paper. After going online and reading about it, I decided to try "Emily's" skin soother. Boy was I pleasantly suprised! It really is soothing and helps the dryness a great deal . Even though I still have eczema flare-ups chronically Emily's skin soother gets me through the cycle more comfortably. These products ( unlike the others I tried) are chemical free which is not only good for me but also the environment. Just started using the liquid soap soother and love it. Thank you Mike! Linda P.”

Emily Products Used in Acupuncture School Clinics and Recommended by Acupuncturists
“During my time as an acupuncture student, I came across a new product in our school clinic, which was, Emily Skin Soother. I was impressed by the simple, beautiful, and gentle ingredients of the formula and was looking forward to introducing this to patients in need. In particularly, my pediatric patients. My 5-year-old patient would come in with bright red, itchy eczema-like patches on her delicate skin- her mother had tried many different products with little to no results. I suggested Emily's and one week later at the next appointment, her skin had significantly improved and in the following weeks, there were no further signs of irritation! Now as a Licensed Acupuncturist, I will confidently continue to suggest this product in my practice.”

Emily Products Made the Patch Disappear. We Are Amazed!!
“I have two small children, under 4, with eczema. My husband and I have never had eczema so trying to learn about it and find the right products has been a challenge. My daughter's is on the top of her hand and has always been difficult to manage because of all the exposure it gets to the environment, food, paints, Play-doh, etc. Emily Skin Soother really has done wonders for helping us to better manage her breakouts. We use the Liquid Soap Soother to wash her hands, the Emily bar soap in the tub, and the Skin Soother after every hand wash and bath. It really has made such a big difference for her poor little hand. We take it with us everywhere we go so she never has to use regular soap.
My son's eczema began on his shin. A very large patch that was extremely dry. Emily Skin Soother and the bar soap have made the patch disappear all together. We are just amazed!! He recently just developed a very large area of eczema on his back, which must be so itchy and uncomfortable. I am looking forward to the Skin Soother helping that to disappear as well. We can't thank you enough.
My only request would be to make larger tubs of the Skin Soothers. We're going through them so fast in this household.
Thank you for making such an effective and safe product!”
Advance Praise for Diaper Skin Soother
(Here is a testimonial we received from one of the moms testing our soon-to-be-released Diaper Skin Soother. We hope it works as well for your little one.)
“OK, I am a believer... As a foster mom to over 60 babies, I have used every product on the market and all of the home remedies for diaper rash... Now that I have my own son, I was distressed to find that nothing I was using was working on a nasty rash he had... I tried everything, including switching to cloth diapers, and not only was it not getting better, some things were making it worse!
Poor little guy would literally claw at himself every time I changed his diaper... My husband brought home the new diaper rash cream, as we have been Emily fans for a long time, and I used it, though I admit I did not have much hope....
24 hours later and it is gone. Just gone. After the first application, I thought it looked better, and even more so after the next, but this AM when I changed his diaper, the skin was healed and just slightly pink.
AND, for the first time in two weeks, he did not scratch.... I am amazed, and so very grateful. I cannot imagine using anything else again, I am thrilled something NATURAL did what nothing else I tried could...
THANK YOU, Charity and baby Max....”

Allergist Recommended – Eczema Symptoms 10-Fold Improvement
“After one year of constant itching, rashes and terrible discomfort, a very intelligent allergist determined I have a strange eczema with perhaps some allergic components. When asked what soap I was using I named about three that were "non-fragrance", non-soap, you name it- he suggested Emily soaps and skin soothers. I can honestly say that my symptoms have improved 10-fold with these products. You actually feel clean but not "dried" out like I did with all the other soaps. The liquid soap is fantastic and makes it easy to reach your back!!

3 Month Old's Skin Has Gone From Leather-Skin to "Baby Soft"
“My daughter suffered from eczema as a baby and toddler. I tried everything I could get my hands on to treat her itchy, irritated skin. Some things worked fairly, most not at all. My grandson has inherited our family's eczema. I feel so fortunate to have found your product, Unscented Skin Soother. His 3 month old skin has gone from "rashy", leather-skin, to now feeling "baby soft", as a baby's skin should feel. I also purchased the soap for both of my grandsons to use. I cannot thank you enough.
Long Journey with Rosacea Finally Over
“I have had rosy checks my entire life (40 years). It was a very intense redness flecked with tiny broken blood vessels. It was annoying but I coped with it, masking it with make-up. When it became very intensely painful, I sought a resolution.
Every doctor I saw diagnosed it as Rosacea and put me through the traditional treatments for Rosecea with absolutely no improvement. Thanks to my own research, I traced the cause of the pain and redness to a food allergy (gluten) and food sensistivies (too many to list).
I worked with a dietician to learn how to eat avoiding those trigger foods. That solved the pain, but nothing reduced the inflamation and redness on my cheeks. Then I tried Emily Skin Smoothers after my friend told me that this product helped her infant son's ezcema. I am very happy to report that using this product, in conjuction with my new diet, the redness in my face is finally diminishing...the flecks of tiny broken blood vessels have even healed and disappeared!! I have tried so many products on the market and this is the first one that has helped!!
Every morning I look in the mirror and marvel at the progress!! It has been a very long journey for me and this is finally the missing piece I've been searching for!! ”
Emily Helps A Doggie's Hotspots Too
“My Australian Shepard has a tendency to getting hot spots on her back/rear when she gets a little stressed. (ie. the site of a suit case) I've tried many creams & salves & they work.. when she doesn't lick them off. It's so difficult to get her to leave the spot alone so it will heal. I put some Emily's Skin Soother on it, (the lavendar scented one) and since she didn't like the smell she stopped licking it. Emily's worked great in 2 days she was completely healed. I didn't even have to cut the hair around it, so she doesn't have a bald spot for weeks. Last time it cost $100.00 at the vet for a 5 minute visit. Thank you, I would highly recommend Emily's to anyone. It's safe enough for a dog to ingest in case they do tend to lick a lot.”

Liquid Soap Helps After 50 Years of Redness and Rashes
Thanks for developing the Liquid Soap product. Over the past 50 years I have been to Allergists and Dermatologists with no results. Your product being pure and simple is the only product that has cleared my skin and scalp (since I use it as a shampoo as well) of rashes and redness. It is the only body wash/shampoo that does not cause my skin to get red, itchy, or get hives. Finally some relief! Thanks again to you and your love for Emily!”
–Laura Y., IT Consultant
Scales and Itchiness of Psoriasis Greatly Reduced
“I have had psoriasis for over 15 years, calculated by my dermatologist to
effect up to 20% of my body. I have tried all of the expensive
creams/ointments prescribed by my dermatologist with only minimal effect.
I started using Emily's Unscented Baby & Adult Skin Soother. This product
has worked well on the scales and reddened areas. It has gotten rid of
the scales and greatly reduced the reddened areas. It has also eliminated
the itchiness. As Emily's products are all natural, I feel this is a much
safer alternative to the biologics (which is the only other treatment that
I haven't tried). I have recently started using Emily's Liquid Soap
Soother which I love. As well as using it in the shower I have started
putting some of the Liquid Soap in my jacuzzi which I find keeps my skin
from drying out and leaves it soft. Are you planning any new products? How
about shampoo??? Keep up the good work Mike!”

After Trying Many Other Products–Emily is Priceless
“Before using Emily Skin Soothers, the eczema on many areas of my body would become dry and scaly, causing the skin to crack, bleed and become very painful. After using this wonderful product, my skin no longer dries out and the process of healing proceeds much faster. My comfort level has increased significantly.
Other products I've tried include every kind of “anti-itch” cream, as well as every kind of natural and organic product the health food store could suggest. Emily Skin Soothers have proven much more effective — and much cheaper, though it's value to me is priceless. I'm so glad I tried it!!!”
Remarkable Improvement on the Appearance and Feel of My Skin (Acne)
“First of all, it is without hesitation, that I am submitting this testimonial after using your products for about seven months. Frustrated from relentless breakouts, I finally sought the professional opinions from several different dermatologists in my area. They said I might have anything from Rosacea to possible cystic acne. I am in my late 30's and now, of all times, the acne decides to pop up. Needless to say, I purchased about $80 worth of recommended facial products from one of my dermatologists. The products did give some temporary relief to the heat and redness that I experienced on my cheeks, but didn't give me the results I had hoped for. The redness, irritation, and bumps were there the next day; the following week; and into the months. Finally, my dad told me about your products. I was impressed with the number of ingredients that were in your product and by the fact that I could actually pronounce all of them. I ordered the bar soap and the Lavender Emily skin soother ointment. Upon the first 3 applications of the bar soap and skin soother, I noticed a remarkable improvement on the appearance and feel of my skin. The redness and irritation that was so noticeable had almost subsided. I am not saying that you're your products “cured” my acne, but that they helped to reduce the redness and irritation that I have been experiencing for over a year now. I will continue to order and use you're your products. I am sold on them. Not only am I impressed with the results they offer, but also by the fact that they are not tested on animals. You have an impeccable customer service and ease of ordering process. The fact that you sent me such a nice letter with my very first order says a lot about how you genuinely care for your customers. Thank you so much for your time and your research that you have put into your products. Keep up the excellent work as so many of us need your products.
Thanks again. ”

Mom Writes, "Thank You for Making Emily Skin Soothers"
“I just wanted to say, "Thank you for making Emily Skin Soothers!" My mom bought us some at Christmas because our son (8mon at the time) has very sensitive skin and develops red bumpy patches under his chin (from drooling). After just a couple days his skin had cleared dramatically. His elbows are finally smooth again- after being dry and patchy since almost birth. It is an amazing product! I feel so comfortable using it on my son since it contains no harsh chemicals. I even use it on myself, especially my hands! I've told our pediatrician about the product and she wants me to bring it in so she can recommend it to other patients. Thanks again!”
Emily Skin Soother really works
“My baby developed a skin rash at 3 months old. Dr. said it was baby eczema. She gave a prescription. It seemed to work but just temporarliy. Before I knew the dryness returned. Her skin started cracking and bleeding and always getting these dry patches; the poor baby is constantly scratching her skin even after I have applied 6x per day every type of baby skin care cream, vaseline, etc. So after 2 months of torture, I read on a discussion board that a mom used Emily Skin Soother on her baby and it worked for her baby. I went to their site and read all of the testimonials and at this point I already spent over $100 on baby skin care products including organic ones, I figure another $30 more was not going to kill me. I bought the soap and the skin soother and followed the enclosed directions. After one application, you can instantly feel the difference. After a few days of use you can see the difference. The cracked bleeding areas are really starting to heal themselves with the use of this product. I used it on myself and I love the way it makes my skin feel. It's a miracle. Thank you to the creators of this product. I will continue to purchase and use nothing else.”

Wow! 5 Year Old's Skin Clear in Just 2 Days
“Wow! My 5 yr old son has had itchy red rashes all
winter and we've already spent a fortune on drug
store sensitive skin creams, anti-itch lotions,
oatmeal baths, etc. - but nothing helped much. And
he'd scream and run when we tried to put anything on
because a lot of it stings. FINALLY, we read about
Emily's in the Parent's Paper and after just 2 days
his skin is clear! We are so happy with your
product. Thank you, thank you!”
'Scarred-For-Life' to Beautiful Skin
I wish that I had taken a picture of my grand-daughter's face before we used your product. It looked as though it was scarred for life, but after Emily skin soother, it is so beautiful. I thank God for blessing you, Mike, to make this blessed discovery.
Jada Simone's body showed signs of skin irritation around 4 months. First there were fine scaly patches on her arms, legs, and face. As she grew in months, these patches got worse and would bleed. This caused my daughter and I to take baby Jada to her pediatrician which yield very little positive results, and later a visit to the dermatologist, which yielded little to no results. We were told that Jada would have this condition for the rest of her life and that there was no cure for it. (I have a cousin who's married to a lady which has a severe case of eczema that left her entire body covered with skin like an alligator.) I became determined to research and find something that could keep Jada Simone's skin from getting to this type of condition. Ananiah Grace, Jada's older sister, showed signs of eczema early on but we just thought that she'd have to live with it. Moisturizing her skin seemed to help some. But when we discovered you, Mike and your Emily Skin Soothers, there was a skin altering result for her. Now, moisturizing her skin with the Emily skin soothers keeps it looking beautiful.
Little Jada now has an elbow and lower right leg with a patch of skin irritation. I have confidence that your skin soother will help this. You know, the doctor's tried several different ointments which did absolutely nothing; and they even told us that Jada would have this for the rest of her life. But, I say again, "Thanks be to God for you!"”

Emily's Soap for the "Itchies" and Shaving Too
“I have been using Emily's soap for only a week and already I am feeling a difference in the itchy condition of my latest episode with eczema. Sometimes at night the "itchies" wake me out of a sound sleep and none of my prescribed medications seem to bring relief when that happens. What I discovered, however, is getting relief by wetting a bar of Emily's soap and rubbing it against my skin to work up a thick lather and then rinsing it with a damp soft cloth. Even though my experience using the soap is limited, I have used it enough to recognize it as a quality product.
By the way, I've also discovered that Emily's soap makes an excellent shaving "cream" !”
Nurse Reports Emily Helps Soothe a Burn Too
“I recently burned my forearm on a very hot iron. After the first 24 hours I tried using aloe on my burned skin. It became very dry and flaky. I had some Emily cream in my medicine cabinet for my grandsons eczema. I thought I would try it on my burn. To my surprise my skin improved overnight. It was moist, no flakiness, and the redness almost gone. Not only did it feel good, but it looked wonderful with minimal scarring. It is now over 1 & 1/2 weeks since the burn and I do not believe there will be any scarring. I thought aloe was a miracle cream but now I am convinced that “Emily” Skin Soothers' cream is the best!!!!”

Super-Dry Prevents Chapped Nose After Nasty Cold
“Emily and I had a bad cold a few weeks ago and it seemed we were blowing our noses every two minutes. Usually when that happens my nose ends up raw and chapped for days afterwords.
This time I applied the new Super-Dry Soother a few times a day around my nose. It smelled great and felt good and the chapped nose never occurred. What a huge relief. Hope it helps you with your winter skin issues too.”

Exactly What My Elbows Needed(a review of the new Super-Dry Soother)
“This is a truly fantastic product. Just like Mike's daughter, I too had terrible eczema as a baby, and dry skin ever since.
This product is a god-send. While other organic moisturizers work for most of my body, my elbows and the back of my arms (just below the triceps) are always red and itchy. I can honestly say that this is the first product I have ever tried that shuts off that itch almost immediately. Not to mention it smells like a spring garden. :)
Oh — did I mention it is organic and vegan-friendly?
Keep up the great work Mike!”
Emily Helps Nurse Avoid Steroids for Her Baby
“My daughter was diagnosed with "baby eczema" when she was six months old. The doctor recommended an over-the-counter cream to start with and said the next step would be a steroid. Being a Registered Nurse, it was my goal to avoid steroids for as long as possible! I tried the OTC cream but wasn't really seeing much improvement. My grandma saw a segment on the national news about your product and suggested it to me. I was a bit reluctant at first, because you can't always tell when ordering a product from the internet, but I decided to give it a try anyway. I was FLOORED! The Emily Skin Soother made a difference after about a week of application. And I loved the way it absorbed quickly and wasn't greasy, like the OTC cream I had tried. Her eczema cleared up quickly. I was having trouble getting rid of her cradle cap however, and decided to try the soap also. Once again, I was not disappointed! Using the cream and the soap together have kept her skin clear, soft, and smooth. I tested this theory recently as well. We ran out of the soap and cream and were using regular baby soap/lotion. It took less than a week to notice her skin is getting dry and patchy in places again. Time to re-order! And thanks for creating a product like this that I feel good about using and know that it really does work for our little girl.”

Life Changing Improvements in Severe, Oozing, Itchy Eczema
“My 6 1/2 year old has been suffering from severe, oozing, itchy eczema since
the day he was born. We have tried may other creams, ointments and many, many prescription medications with little to no relief. We have now been using your products, both the salve and soap, for about a year and have seen such incredible improvements! Thanks so much for sharing this with us - it has been life changing for my son and I am so appreciative!”
Mystery Rash on Neck Cured After 5 Months of Itching
First of all, I want to thank you. I'm extremely amazed and happy to experience how fast Emily Skin Soother worked. I honestly started thinking that the Rash would never go away....I'm for ever grateful. Around March I begin experiencing a rash in my neck (right and left) At first I thought it was a regular rash and that it would go away. Two, three, four months went by and it wasn't just still there but getting worse. It was itching and the small rash kept getting bigger. I tried Cortizone prescribe by my doctor and even though the itch would stop for a few minutes it would then begin again and the redness would not go away. Another month went by and nothing. I was getting really worried to the point I stopped using necklaces, perfume around my neck, change Shampoo & conditioners, soaps, etc... as I did not know what was causing it and still nothing. After 5 months I was introduced to the Emily skin soother. I have to say that it stopped the itching immediately and after using it for just a couple of days you can being seeing the rash and redness fade away. In matter of a week (if not less) Emily Skin Soother worked wonders, worked what other products promise to do and didn't. It was just wonderful — I couldn't believe how fast it worked and that it actually cured it. I'm still surprise by it. Thank you again” -

Itching Quiet After 7 Years and Many Failed Treatments
“I am thrilled to tell you how very pleased we are with Emily Skin Soother! Our 7-year-old son, Aidan, has had eczema since birth. We have tried every (and I do mean EVERY) pharmaceutical, homeopathic, herbal and anecdotal remedy on the planet. Some would help a bit, but none would completely clear up the itchy, scaly, inflamed and red skin he has suffered with for so long. Even the heavy-duty steroidal crèmes and $200-per-tube ‘new’ drugs prescribed by his dermatologist had little effect. Aidan (and the rest of our family of 5) has endured many a sleepless night due to being awakened by all the scratching. As a result, he has been treated for numerous skin infections.
When I heard about Emily Skin Soothers during the health segment of our local news broadcast, I placed an order. When it arrived, Aidan said “Oh, great…another cream that won’t work.” I’m happy to report that after three days of using Emily, we saw a distinct improvement in his skin. Two weeks later, he has NOT A TRACE of eczema symptoms. His skin is clear, soft and (best of all) not itchy!!!
We’re so grateful to have found your product, and are glad to support a family-run business. We’re aware that there is no “cure” for eczema, but, as long as there is Emily Skin Soother, Aidan is as good as cured. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!”

P.S. Emily clears up the stubborn dry skin on elbows in a FLASH!
...Still Doing Well 1 Year Later
I just wanted to send along a quick update and let you know that Aidan is now 8, and still doing GREAT using Emily! We actually had an unplanned 'test' of its effectiveness this summer. We went away for a week, and forgot our jars of Emily at home. Within 4 days, the itchy, red, scaly patches started to appear on Aidan's inner elbows and thighs again. Once home, we resumed the daily application of Emily, and the patches were gone in 3 days... Any doubts that it was the Emily which kept his eczema at bay were quickly gone from our minds!
Since we first tried Emily over a year ago, I have sent dozens of people to buy it. Not a single one has been disappointed. In fact, all have reported tremendous success. (This comes as no surprise to me, of course, Emily's biggest fan! :)
Great to see your www.myskinbetter.com website. We'll be sure to tell our friends and family.
Warm regards, Cheri Olf”
Eczema on My Hands–Emily's Worked Overnight!
“I've been using your Emily's Skin Smoothing cream ever since my associate offered it to me a couple of months ago for my eczema on my hands. I was nervous to put oil on my eczema and expected to be disappointed since I've tried everything for 14 years. I did have a great result for 5 years with acupuncture but never a cream, lotion, or cortisone product other than itch relief.
To my amazement it worked overnight! After a few very light applications it's completely healed the skin on my hands. I haven't had to use it on my hands since! I also have used it on another skin issue I've had literally ALL my life, 46 years on the inside of my legs. I use Emily's cream regularly for this area. It certainly helps to clear up that area as well. I continue to use it and am amazed at how little I have to apply. Thank you so much for this great product!”

Amanda Does A Happy Dance for Our Soap
“I am a preschool teacher and wash my hands up to 20-30 times a day. When I started using the Emily Soap my hands would not crack open in the winter due to cold weather and hand washing. My almost 9 year old daughter has had baby eczema all her life. We tried many different products, been to many different dermatologist and had only a quick fix. Emilys soap keeps her face clear and smooth. She looked like she had been sucking on a pacificer. Many doctors insisted she was licking her lips. We watched her all the time and she was not. She is so happy to get her Emily soap she did a happy dance. Thank you, ”

Atopic Eczema—The Red Sore Blotches Have Disappeared
“My little girl Sophie, 13 months old, suffers from atopic eczema on her whole body but mainly on her hands and face. I have tried all the prescription creams from the doctor, none of which have worked. The last straw for me was when Sophie really suffered with poor skin on her 1st birthday, she was so miserable with her red weeping hands and red lumpy face. It was so bad I could've cried for her. In my frustration I turned to the internet yet again but this time I came across the "Emily's skin range. The cream etc sounded amazing and so natural so I ordered a pot to try. I was so pleased with the results I have now ordered another 5 pots to be shipped to me in England. I want the security of having plenty of cream so I don't run out. My little girl's skin is so much better in just 2 weeks and seems to get better by the day. She always has the dryness on her skin but the fact that the red sore blotches have disappeared is fabulous. At $14 what a small price to pay for beautiful itch free skin. Thank you so much "Emily's" / Mike.”

Emily and Grandma to the Rescue-Amazing
“My grandson had eczema and was getting worse, nothing before Emily was effective at treating the red dry patches on his skin. After treating him with the Emily products his "patches" were clearing up within 1 week, and within a month are gone, amazing, nothing else worked in such a short time. Emily's has cleared it up.”
Extremely Bad Eczema... My Prayers Were Answered
“Emily Skin Soothers is fantastic! Before I used this product, my eczema was extremely bad. My arms & hands were very swollen, red, itchy, and seemed like there was no hope in sight, not even while using the cream the doctor prescribed. After using the Emily Skin Soothers, my skin cleared up very fast and the itching stopped after I applied it. I really feel my prayers were answered. Thank you so much for all the time and work you put into making this product. I am sure it will work for others as it has for me.”
Severe Dermatitis – "Before Emily it Hurt to Walk"
“Before using Emily Skin Soothers my hands and feet were so broke out with dermatitis, I was ashamed for anyone to see them. I had been using a steroid for years before finding Emily Skin Soothers. I was using a 50g tube every month to keep my dermatitis under control. It would never clear up and my feet just keep getting worse all the time. My mother introduced me to Emily. I was skeptical at first. By the end of the first month-there was noticeable improvement in my hands. My feet were worse and they took about 4 months for me to see they were healing. I have not used any steroids for either my hands or feet for 5 months now.
Emily Skin Soothers have been the best thing I have ever found. As I said, my feet were so broke out before using Emily that it would hurt to walk on them-but since they have been clearing up-now that I found Emily Skin Soothers-my feet don't hurt at all to walk on anymore. I don't have the breakouts that I used to have. Because of using the steroids for so long, my skin is really thin on my feet and hands. I have noticed my hands are much better and the skin doesn't appear to be so thin anymore. My feet are improving a lot also. The skin is still thin but is much better than they were. Thank you so much for Emily Skin Soothers.”

A Case of Eczema Gone Bad
“My problem began with poison ivy. I've had several severe cases in the past couple of years but in November 2006 things
changed. After ridding myself of the poison ivy and undergoing tests for allergies, I was diagnosed with what my dermatologist
calls "a case of eczema gone bad". Nothing seemed to clear it up or heal it. My brother had heard the story of Emily and told me I should check into it. In September 2007 I ordered both the skin soother and soap and have been using it ever since. After trying several other things I am finally seeing great results. My legs are showing signs of clearing up and healing. I'm very happy with both products and will continue to use them. I would recommend anyone with these severe skin problems to try Emily's.”

A Product Worthy of Blessings
“Your product is the BEST! I use this on my 3 year old and her skin have cleared up. I am going to use Emily Skin Soothers on myself as well. I suffer with eczema and have since I was a child. I am 40 years old now. Thanks for making such a natural product that really works.
May Yahweh bless you and your business.”

Baby Acne and Eczema Soothed in 2 Brothers
“We had been to the doctor many many many times with our baby who had "baby acne." After his 1st birthday, we went to a dermatologist that tried 4 or 5 different creams to put on his face and nothing seemed to help-one even had a "Black Box" warning on it!! My mother saw a story on Emily Skin Soothers on the local news and told me about it. My husband and I both decided that nothing else had worked so let's try it. Within 2 days, his "Baby Acne" was completely gone on his face and has not returned!
Our five year old also has eczema. We've tried the over the counter creams for eczema and nothing seems to work. The only thing they do for him is burn!! We've tried just regular lotions and he screams and says they burn. We didn't know what to do for him until we found Emily Skin Soothers!! Now when we put it on him, he doesn't scream or cry. If he's been in the bathtub too long and his eczema is burning when he gets out, once we put Emily Skin Soothers on, he tells us it feels much better!! We are forever a Emily Skin Soothers loyal customer!!!”

Toddler Says, "I Like This."
“My two year old daughter has been suffering from dry eczema since she was three months old. She would scratch day and night, and the itchiness seemed to make her so irritable. People would look at her and say "poor thing.” It broke my heart. I sought help from various alternative medicine practitioners, and there was some improvement , but I needed help to keep her skin moisturized and reduce the redness and itchiness. I tried many, many products with limited success. Some products were good for itching, but not good as a moisturizer. Others were good moisturizers but not effective for itching. I was about to give up until someone recommended Emily Skin Soothers to me. When I put the cream on her body for the first time, she said “I like this!!” I almost fainted since she would always scream when I put other creams on her. It has been approximately one month since I started using it, and I would say that her eczema has improved about 75%, which is huge!! Her skin is not perfect, but she is calmer and sleeping better. When she wakes up, she now screams for me to put on the cream. If she’s impressed, I’m impressed. Thank you so much for your product and also your kind, prompt responses to my questions.”
Able to Quit Expensive Medications with Emily
“Just wanted to let you know that my husband's doctor and home health nurse told him Monday how much better his skin was looking. He has psoriasis (severe case) since 2006 from so many MRI's. I spoke to you several months ago and you suggested using the soap on his skin - this we have done and the results has been EXCELLENT. I stopped using the two types of medications prescribed to him (the cost was $300 for the ...Ointment and $129 for the .......Ointment) used these meds for over 6 months with NO RESULTS. We have used the Skin Smoothers and Soap for over 9 months and are so thankful for finding your Website. Just ordered another (6) Skin Smoothers and (2) bars of Soap yesterday. We have recommended your Skin Smoothers and Soap to several people. Thanks for your suggestions and the wonderful newsletter.”
Child with History of Eczema & Folliculitis
“Our son Anthony struggled with eczema and folliculitis since the age of about 3 months. We have taken him to doctors for years, including pediatricians and dermatologists. None of the options they gave us worked… steroid creams, various ointments, etc. The only thing that has not only helped, but cured Anthony’s skin conditions is the Emily ointment and Emily soap. We noticed an immediate improvement and after only a couple of applications, his skin was smooth and free of any irritation. I am also now using it on my elbows as a moisturizer. I would recommend these products for anyone who has a skin condition of the same or similar type as Anthony’s.”
Relief from Psoriasis and Eczema
“I have been living with psoriasis and eczema for the past 10 years or so. In this time I have been under the care of several dermatologists, all who have prescribed a topical steroid solution. To date, no steroid prescription has aided or helped my condition. The most active area of irritation on my body would be my scalp, face and elbows (raised red bumps with white flaking scales).
I have been using Michael Arsenault’s product for a little over a month now. I have had immediate results after just seven days of consistent use of his product. The once most common areas of irritation are now close to being unnoticeable. I virtually have no raised bumps or white flaking scales on my scalp at all. The affected areas on my face have improved dramatically to where the redness is not noticeable and the raised bumps on my elbows are almost gone.
I am truly amazed with my results and could not be happier with this product. I think what I am most happy about is the fact that this product is all natural and contains no steroids.”

Itchy, Cracked, Painful Hands from Overuse
“I am a professional cleaner and my hands are constantly abused by harsh rubber gloves. As a result, I come home and experience pain, dryness and itching. It hurt to shake hands. I tried at least a dozen other skin care products and while some were OK, not a single one worked as well as this. It’s magnificent. It puts a nice coating on the hands and there is no more flaking, scaling or cracking. I use it once in the morning and once at night and the problem is solved. I have no discomfort. I suggest to one and all: Stop messing around and start using this. Your hands will thank you.”

Bye Bye Drool Rash
“After trying many, many products to heal the drool
rash on my daughter's chin and cheeks, your skin
soother cleared it up overnight! For the first time
in many months her chin and cheeks are free from the
little red bumps!”
Dishydrotic Eczema, New Onset
“Recently I was diagnosed with dishydrotic eczema. I’ve never had anything like it-itching, blistering, cracking, peeling. NOTHING seemed to work-not even the steroid cream prescribed for me. Emily’s cream was recommended-it was soothing on both hands and feet-I loved it! Thank you and thank Emily!”

Incredible Improvement after 5 Years of Symptoms
“My son Daniel just turned five years old and he has had skin problems since he was born. Recently on a vacation to Florida, we were watching the news and an interview came on. It was about people with Eczema. My son has battled this since day one and recently it's been horrible. There is a professional term for it, but, it's about 50 letters long. His fingers and toes start to blister and peel kind of like athletes foot and then water blisters form on his hands and feet they itch and bother him so much. Every dermatoligist we see says the same thing, "It can't be cured, but possibly treated". I hate to hear "possibly". So we thought we'd try the Emily. Hey, at this point, I'd try anything! Afer a few weeks of use, the blisters started going away. As long as we continuously apply the Emily, his problem is almost gone. Not 100% but much more bearable! Besides the smell of the orignal, It's incredible! Thank You from a Mother who cares so deeply about her son!”

Itchy, Scaly, Red, Peeling Eyelids--No More!
“I recently ordered a jar of your Emily Skin Soother. I had tried several remedies for the itchy, scaly, red, peeling skin on my eyelids which seems to be a problem whenever the weather changes. Though my doctor has given me a prescription for something he claims "will work overnight," I have no need to fill the prescription as your salve worked in about four days. I used the product twice a day, and my eyelids are completely clear and my skin is smooth. Now I use it for everything, from chapped cheeked children to cracked fingertips. Thanks for a great (natural) product!”
-- Kim T.
“As a practicing aesthetician since 1987, I have encountered many clients with moderate to severe dermatitis and eczema. Since Emily’s Skin Soother was introduced I have been referring many clients to the products. The salve leaves the skin well hydrated while also leaving a thin protective barrier from water and chemicals. It is a wonderful alternative to steroid creams commonly prescribed by dermatologists. I am also getting great feedback for common dry skin (eczema) behind the ears and around the eye area. In combination with the soap, many clients are seeing wonderful relief from the dry itchy skin they find is irritated by most bar soaps. I use the salve myself after working all day and constantly disinfecting my hands. It is a great healing product.”

Toddler Enjoys Applying Skin Soother
“After seeing a short news segment about Emily Skin Soother, I ordered both the Skin Soother and Soap and sent them to my daughter to use with her son (18 months) who is plagued with Atopic Eczema--apparently an inherited condition as I have fought this off and on for years. Whenever my daughter applied any of the numerous ointments, creams, lotions, etc., prescribed by a pediatric dermatologist, he would kick, scream, cry, and resist in anyway he could to avoid have the product rubbed onto his face. Needless to say, none of the products were very effective in dealing with the recurring eczema. Now, with Emily Skin Soother, not only has there been a remarkable improvement in his skin but my daughter has to hide the container because he is constantly trying to get it himself and rub it on his face by the fistful!! Thank you for going public with this product.”

Dry Patches in Winter
“I have eczema along with extremely dry skin during the winter. I always seem to have very dry patches here and there. I’ve tried all sorts of creams, including prescribed ones (that include steroids). Nothing seemed to keep it away for long. The olive oil eczema salve really seems to clear up the dryness. I like the fact that it is an all natural product. The scent is pleasant and the fact the salve worked made it worth the buy. I would recommend this to anyone.”
-- Alison, Loan Servicer
Feedback from a Skin Care Professional
“I am using the Emily Soap and have noticed that my skin is noticeably less dry than when I have used mass marketed brands ….The tight dry feeling in my skin has been relieved from using the Emily soap with every shower.
I also gave the Emily Skin Soother to my grandson and it cleared up the abrasions on his hands and took away the redness in a couple of days.
The products are wonderful for clearing up redness and irritated sensitive skin and I really like that they are fragrance free.”
-- Ellen McMillan, Aesthetician and Spa Therapist, Beautiful You Organic Skin Care
Scaly, Cracked, Dry Hands
“Working and treating patients in a transitional care unit is part of my job. As a result I am constantly washing my hands. Both hands are very dry and scaly, especially the palms-fingertips. Three were cracked and open. After using this product for one week I was delighted with the results. They were absolutely smooth-no peeling skin-no cracks, and I certainly have tried many skin lotions in the past. But none equaled the excellent results I received from this product.”
