  • How long should I need to use them?

All of these products are formulated for daily use and are suitable for all skin types including babies.

In severe cases, regularly apply the cream several times a day if necessary to provide relief and after a few days, there should be a noticeable change.  

In some cases, you will notice results within 5-10 days.  In other cases, you may need to apply the cream daily for 1-2 months.  However, once the skin has started to repair and heal itself then you can use the cream once every day or two to maintain good skin condition.

  • Are they suitable for vegans?

Some of the products contain cera alba (beeswax), and lanolin oil, so may not be suitable for vegans

  • Where can I buy Basix products?

The Basix range can be bought from Amazon, Victoria Health, Lombardi Smith, Ebay and other health stores and pharmacies.

  • What’s the story behind Lombardi Smith?

Owner and founder Russ Smith comes from a family history of skin complaints.  His father suffered terribly from psoriasis and Russ suffered from eczema as a child, particularly on the wrists elbows and knees.

The only cream that worked at the time was his father’s strong cortisone cream with severe side effects, so the relief was only temporary.

While living in South Africa, he discovered this incredible ingredient Kigelia Africana in a cream that not only provided relief but helped to repair the damage and prevent scratching which exacerbated the condition.  

His father tried the cream and saw a noticeable difference after a few weeks and the dry scaly patches cleared up after a couple of months.

Seeing these results motivated Russ to import the cream and make it available in the UK and Europe. A very simple philosophy still drives the business today.  Everyone deserves to have clear skin, free of irritations.
