Why we love it

When nothing else worked, Rescue Balm finally ended our 18 year battle with eczema, even helping to banish dyshidrotic eczema a dermatologist said would never improve.

Unlike other Balms, we go beyond just blending botanical oils and pack our Balm with clinically proven active ingredients.  Our waterless Rescue Balm contains ingredients normally only found in luxury face creams.

Safe for all ages and skin types with most users experiencing a visible improvement within 3 days. See our recommendations for managing eczema and psoriasis here.

Why it works

Centella Asiatica -antibacterial, antioxidant, promotes rapid skin regeneration and inhibits the growth of scar tissue by increasing collagen production. Clinically proven to speed healing by up to 6 times.

Blue Chamomile -anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antioxidant. Suppresses histamine reaction, soothes itch, and studies have shown it to be more effective than hydrocortisone cream (without the side effects!).

Niacinamide -improves the skin's barrier, helping repair past damage and preventing future damage. Stimulates the dermis, strengthening it and helping retain moisture.

Vitamin C -powerful anti-oxidant that protects your skin from environmental damage, is an anti-inflammatory and reduces signs of damage.

Allantoin -a calming karolytic, softens keratin to promote rapid healing and binding of moisture.

Panthenol -aka provitamin b5. Clinically proven to hydrate, bring down itching, reduce inflammation, and accelerate healing. All while boosting the efficacy of other active ingredients.

Vitamin E -highly moisturising and an antioxidant. Promotes healing.

Moringa oil -high in Vitamins A, C, and E. Considered the most nutrient dense oil with 46 types of antioxidant and 36 anti-inflammatories. Works as an emollient, promotes skin regeneration. Anti-ageing with 72% oleic acids and penetrates deep into the dermis.

Kombo butter -intensely moisturising and high myristoleic acid to reduce pain and inflammation while promoting rapid healing.

Plus a blend of 7 further botanicals known for their moisturising, protective and regenerative properties.

How to use it

Suitable for all skin types and areas. Use little and often on clean skin-we find it goes three times as far as your average store bought cream.

It is very important that you use the Balm in order to achieve desired results. Initially, you may need to apply multiple times a day. As your skin repairs itself, your need to apply will naturally lessen.

As this Balm is nearly entirely comprised of natural botanical butters and oils, it must be kept cool and away from sunlight. If allowed to melt, it will return to a dark brown colour and some separation may occur. Simply move to a cool place (can be kept in a refrigerator) and stir once cooled and set.

Melting does not harm the product or affect its efficacy.


We prefer to invest in high quality ingredients, not packaging. 10, 100, and 250ml Rescue Balms come in an all aluminium container that can be reused or recycled. The 500ml refill comes in a wax lined kraft paper bag which can be used to fill a sterilised container of your choice.

Jane from Dartmoor (Plymouth, GB)

The Rescue Cream is deceptively lightweight and has been unbelievably effective from the first use. I had a large nasty patch of eczema on my hand which was not responding to the usual treatments - most of them were making it much worse and it became painful and itchy. Since using the rescue cream my skin has improved over a very short period of time using it only in the morning and then again before bed. I am so impressed and will highly recommend it. Thanks Thunderbird Skin.

Isabelle (The Hague, NL)

Dear Thunderbird Skin,
You have changed my life. My day consist of constantly itching (sometimes even until it bleeds) leaving dry and sore patches all over my side, back and arms. After trying various kinds of skincare products from the cheap to the expensive ones (that so called "will definitely help), and even prescribed ointments, Rescue Balm is the only one that relieves en sootjes my skin. After applying I am itch-free for a full day! I have placed my second order, even for family members. I am sure that there will follow many more orders :-)
Sending a big thank you and love alle the way from The Hague, Holland

My skin improved after using rescue balm. I am extremely grateful for the product

Just lovely

I have started swapping this cream with my usual night cream on alternate nights, but am going to start just using this one - my skin feels so soft in the morning and looks calm and healthy. I have very sensitive menopausal skin and it is so good for it. It has a lovely relaxing scent, which I presume is the tansy, and although it seems quite oily at first, it sinks in very quickly. I love the effects of niacinimide and centella asiatica, which are in this product, and am pleased to find that I don't react the the vitamin c, which I have done in the past. Will definitely buy again, though it is a nice big jar and you don't need very much, so I should think it will last a long time.

Bought this for my granddaughter and the result after a short time is amazing from very red sore patches of eczema to very faded and healed skin wish I would of taken pictures of before and after

Melita Nicholls (Norwich, GB)

Very pleased with the rescue Balm. It will not cure my Palma Plantar Pustulosis but really
helps with the soreness and itching. much better than using steroid ointments. Have just
purchased my second pot. Thank you so much.


I have suffered with psoriasis since a young age, using all sorts of prescribed and non prescribed moisturiser to try and clear. I have very little psoriasis left which has been persistent in going with any product I use. Since starting using thunderbird I have noticed a considerable difference in the patches I have left, to the point they are barely noticeable! I would highly recommend this product.

This stuff is incredible. I was having to use my steroid cream every day. Now I don't use it at all. I could see a difference after about 3 days but I could feel a difference immediately. Soothed the itch and hydrated so well. I actually prefer the cream to the balm but I use both. Honestly works.

Emma Young (Norwich, GB)
More helpful than any other psoriasis treatment

Posting on behalf of mother who I purchased this product for. My mother had a 2” x 3” patch on the bottom of her palm that has been there for years in various severities. She’s had phototherapy, steroids, the works. It was at its reddest and worst when she started on this product, very red with thick plaques, emerging blisters, and sore cracks from its position on the palm.

Within a few months it was almost healed - still a bit red, but plaques gone. The moisture allowed it to heal without cracking again. My own psoriasis has returned so I will be purchasing some.

Pictures show retreat of size after a couple of months.
