    Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: How long before I can see results from using Robertsons Skin Repair Ointment?

    A: Eczema symptoms are caused by a variety of triggers. With regular application of Robertson’s, results may be seen within one to two weeks. For longer term cases of eczema, results may vary. If symptoms persist consult a healthcare practitioner.


    Q: Can this ointment be used around the eyes?

    A: Yes. Robertsons Skin Repair Ointment can be used around the eyes, on the face and on the body. Because Robertson’s is a very thick ointment, it will not run into the eye when heated up by the skin’s temperature. Apply a very small amount of ointment around the eye area by gently dabbing it on with your fingertips. Dab off any excess ointment by pressing the area gently with a tissue.


    Q: I need to apply Robertson’s Skin Repair Ointment to a large area of the body. What is the best way to do that?

    A: Because Robertson’s Skin Repair Ointment is extremely thick and moisturizing, only a very small amount of it is needed per application. When applying Robertson’s to large areas of the body, spray a fine mist of water onto the skin, then apply the product. This will help the ointment spread easier. Alternatively, apply Robertson’s straight after a bath or shower while the skin is still moist.


    Q: Can I use other moisturizers whilst still using this Repair Ointment?

    A: We do not recommend applying other moisturizers on the affected skin whilst using Robertson’s. This may affect Robertsons Skin Repair Ointment performance.


    Q: Why is Robertson’s Skin Repair Ointment an ointment?

    A: Ointments are thick and deeply moisturising for extremely dry skin such as eczema.  They also act as a barrier to help protect the skin from drying out.


    Q: Do you have samples I can try?

    A: No. Because Robertsons Skin Repair Ointment needs to be applied consistently for one to two weeks to see results, trying a sample will not give you a good indication of it’s effectiveness.


    Q: Robertson’s may be more expensive than other eczema creams. Why is that?

    A: Because Robertson’s is an ointment that is very thick. Only a very small amount is needed per application which means a little Robertson’s Skin Repair Ointment goes a long way. It is produced to the highest quality standards.
