Q1. Why should I buy your Routine?

Elena’s routine was developed from feedback from people prone to eczema and psoriasis. Research has proven over the past 25 years that the four products in the routine are exactly what the eczema sufferer needs to keep the eczema under control. The Trinity soap and Shampoo reduces the itch, the Ultimate Body Oil lubricates the dry skin, and the Day Cream Special and Night Cream Extra repairs and restores the skin.

Q2. Who is Elena?
Elena was born in 1954, she is a qualified nurse (RGN) and Burns and Plastics trained ENB264 at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, West Sussex. For more information follow the link to “About Elena”.

Q3. What should I do if my baby has a severe flare up?

You can use Eureka Cream or Illumination Cream. The Eureka Cream was formulated after 8 years of research especially for severe flare-ups and it works. Illumination Cream was formulated later as an alternative and is smoother and soaks into the skin more easily. Eureka cream is more substantial.

Q5. What if my baby’s skin goes red for 10 -20 minutes?
An increase in redness is not unusual as the skin is sensitive. This should subside within 10-30 minutes. Always do a patch test before you introduce a product. Patch tests are done behind the ear or the inside the wrist.

Q6. What if I am I am allergic to wheat?

Applying a product to the skin is not the same as taking it internally. Always do a patch test. Speak to a Nutritionist.

Q7. Should I buy from you or go straight to the NHS?

The best solution is to try our routine first. When you are happy with the results ask for a G.P information pack and approach your G.P. This trial must be conducted for 10-12 weeks at which stage success normally is found. This is a good point to take the child to the Doctor.
