Welcome to Purepotions
The home of natural creams, ointments and oils


We make products formulated especially for use by those prone to dry skin. Our creams, ointments and oils are made from the very finest ingredients - many of them organic and local - with absolutely nothing unnecessary added ever.

Fragrance-free, paraben-free and not tested on animals, all our products are made in our own UK workshop and use the gentle goodness of herbs and natural oils rather than potentially harsh synthetic chemicals, so you can be sure that you know exactly what is going on your sensitive skin.

Founded by a mother who wanted to find an effective, safe, natural and non-steroidal moisturiser for her daughter’s dry skin, Purepotions has been producing its award-winning Skin Salvation Range for over ten years.

All of our products have been carefully formulated so they are also suitable for use by people who may be prone to eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and other dry or itchy skin conditions.


Our Intensive Moisturising Ointment still uses the same simple ingredients as always but we’ve expanded the range to include rich, nourishing oils and soothing lotions to meet the different needs of our customers’ skin.

We use herbs and oils - such as hemp, chamomile, calendula, lavender and nettle - that have been used for centuries to feed skin with vital nutrients as part of a healthy skin regime.

Our beeswax-based ointment moisturises and protects delicate skin, locking in water and forming a barrier against irritants and allergens, while our softer, (vegan-friendly) shea-butter based creams are excellent as part of a daily moisturising regime to keep skin well hydrated and beautifully supple.

We also make a range of natural emollient oils: Bath & Body Oil for use after bathing or effective all-over hydration; Scalp Oil with tea-tree, borage and rosemary for soothing and conditioning itchy, flaky scalps; our amazing new Omega Rich Cleansing Oil with rosehip and calendula, perfect for removing make-up and daily grime; our gorgeous night-time Intensive Facial Oil with Rosehip and Lavender, and our much-loved Scar Oil which is great for stretchmarks, uneven skin tone and smoothing out damaged skin. All our oils are wonderfully rich with natural nutrients to nourish and condition the skin.

Our moisturising creams include the soft and gentle shea butter-based Daily Moisturising Cream and our refreshing new Cooling Cream with menthol and aloe. We also offer our Skin Salvation salve in a handy little Lip Balm tube for soft and supple lips and other bits!

Skin Salvation Range for Dry Skin


Purepotions have developed a natural hair care regime for those who want to use only the mildest and gentlest of botanical ingredients on their crowning glory! Kind to skin and kind to the planet, our Natural Shampoo with chamomile and calendula and Natural Conditioner with oats and hemp seed oil are made with gentle plant-based cleansers and ingredients of natural origin such as herbal tinctures, organic oils and plant extracts. They are free from potentially irritating or toxic additives such as perfumes, petrochemicals, parabens or SLS/SLES, so are also suitable for those prone to scalp psoriasis, eczema or dry, itchy, flaky scalps.

The range is completed by our popular Scalp Oil with tea-tree, borage and rosemary, which nourishes and conditions itchy, flaky scalps. This 100% natural blend of oils is perfect for overnight application to give your hair a really intensive conditioning treatment and keep your scalp hydrated and healthy.

Hair and Scalp Range - ultra natural products to keep hair and scalp healthy


Although all our products are made from the simplest kindest natural ingredients and can be used from top to toe by children and adults of all ages, we also make a special Baby Skincare Range particularly for the delicate skin of our tiniest customers. Our sweetly-scented Lavender Nappy Salve is ideal for nappy changes and our luscious Chamomile Baby Oil is great as a beautifully mild daily cleanser which can also be applied after baths as well as used for baby massage.


From our first beginnings being sold at local market stalls to being stocked in hundreds of health food stores and pharmacies across the country, Purepotions’ products have been loved and praised by our many enthusiastic and loyal customers.

Featured Article - The Hunt for the Perfect Cream Suitable for Eczema

The Perfect Moisturiser for Super Sensitive Skin

A cream that feeds the body whilst effectively moisturising skin on the outside: that is our answer to "what's the perfect cream for dry, sensitive skin?" And that's exactly what we have created in our Skin Salvation Daily Moisturiser! Sounds like a bold claim, doesn't it?

But it makes total sense to look at the long term skin health as well as immediate hydration. The cream you choose for dry skin shouldn't just be about managing the external effects of dryness in order to keep skin healthy, hydrated and looking lush but should also be about feeding your body with vitamins and nutrients to keep the skin's natural barrier function in good condition longer term.  

Skin Salvation Daily Moisturiser is packed full of exactly what your skin needs to be healthy and also suitable for people who may be prone to allergies, eczema and other dry skin conditions...
