How it works

Billions of bacteria live on our skin. The vast majority is essential for maintaining a healthy skin, but some bacteria can cause irritation or infection, aggravating skin conditions such as acne, eczema, rosacea and skin irritation.

Micreos, a Dutch biotechnology company in The Netherlands, has developed Gladskin, for people with these skin conditions. Gladskin with Staphefekt is the world's only product targeting just the harmful Staphylococcus aureus-bacterium. Unlike conventional products, Gladskin leaves the good bacteria - essential for a healthy skin - intact, presenting a real active solution suitable for daily maintenance. This marks a new era in the control of skin conditions.

    Life Changing

    I decided to give this a go after hearing about the TV Show and the discussion about the science behind it.

    I've tried pretty much everything for eczema and have noticed
    how bacteria appears to play a big role. I've used bleach  baths to help keep bacteria counts down in the past, So when I heard about this just affecting the Staph I was curious.

    Within the first application of the Eczema Cream on my face I knew this was different than other creams, It felt like it was doing something. I applied in the morning and at night. Within hours of first applying the cream the redness and dryness had drastically reduced.

    Over the next few days of applying it my skin felt and looked better than it has done in a long time, It worked so well I instantly ordered more.

    Severe Allergic Reaction

    For the last month we have been struggling to bring my 2.5 year old daughter's exczema under control after it got suddenly worse. Having tried the medicine prescribed by our doctor with little improvement this time round, in desperation, we purchased Gladskin Eczema cream via Amazon (because it priced it in GBP for the UK) and applied it liberally to my daughter's abdomen, arms, neck and face after her evening bath. What followed was a severe histamine response with her abdomen turning bright red, her face swelling and eyes closing. She was in considerable distress and, on medical advice, we administered anti-histamine medication throughout the night and saw a doctor the next day who advised us not to use the cream going forward. On re-reading the info leaflet, there is a small section called "Tip" which states: "If you have a very dry skin, we recommend that you use Gladskin Eczema Cream. If you are allergic to lanolin, you are advised to use Gladskin Exczema Gel." I am not aware of my daughter having a lanolin allergy as she has taken such products in the past without ill effect. However, assuming that, for whatever reason, she does now have an extreme sensitivity to it, I would have hoped that this warning would have been significantly more prominent on the packaging and in the info leaflet itself. I have taken some photos of my daughter's face showing the allergic reaction thinking that I could post them here but the review doesn't allow posting of photos. While I could now purchase the Gel to see if it has the desired effect, I am reluctant to spend a further GBP£50 and would, in truth, regardless of the cost, never forgive myself if I were to cause another allergic reaction of that magnititude. My advice would be, if you are not sure whether your child has a lanolin allergy, but do want to try this product, steer well clear of the Cream, go for the Gel and apply sparingly for the first application so you can do a skin test and be satisfied that it will not make things worse.

    Excellent results on my eczema

    70 years old, I've had eczema on the lower half of both my legs for over 20 years.  I won't describe it as severe, as I've seen others with a lot worse, but bad enough to require twice daily application of various ointments, and intermittent courses of steroid creams to keep it in check.  Over the years it has also spread to affect to a lesser extent my back, shoulders and around the nose.
    After just a few applications of the eczema cream the redness and itchiness had died down, and it has continued to improve from there.  The rough skin is gradually disappearing, and after just 4 weeks it looks the best it's been for 20 years.
    Fantastic results;  steroid creams have come nowhere near it.

    Immediate improvement

    My Eczema usually appears as red irritated blotches on my hands and I normally control this with emollient and Hydrocortisone.
    Over the last two years things got worse with
    the skin on my hands developing deep sore cracks.  I was able to resolve some of these patches with topical steroids of varying strengths but other patches proved very stubborn and refused to heal.
    Within a few days of starting to use the Gladskin Eczema cream my skin showed signs of tangible improvement as the inflammation subsided and the cracking started to heal with just my normal emmolient and no steroids.
    The cream spreads well and I find one stroke of the pump is enough to treat one hand.  I'm using it twice a day so a 30ml dispenser should last me about two weeks.
    Really impressed.

    Fantastic flexible skin again!

    I have been suffering with chronic hyperkeratotic eczema on my hands and nothing seemed to help. The skin was so hard and dry it split constantly. I saw the TV programme on BBC and ordered cream, what an amazing relief, I have flexible skin again! It has taken some weeks of application and only really started to make a big difference when i used cream and gel. I use cream morning and night and gel several times during day.

    After 28 years of suffering from discoid eczema, with sleepless nights, scratching and all the associated symptoms, I bought Gladskin Eczema cream and had a good night's sleep. Unfortunately managed to get through the bottle in a month - perhaps I was being too generous! I will be ordering more.

    Amazing for tough spots

    My 7 month old son is on Dr Aron's Regime cream. His skin is largely clear from eczema but there are still some tough spots left on his forearms and forelegs. I consulted with Dr Aron whether we could use Gladskin with the AR and he said yes, apply it 3-4 times on tough spots, and the AR cream twice a day. We have seen great results. The redness calmed a lot. The difficult spots start to heal.

    I have already ordered three times.

    The complain I have is the price. It is too expensive and a 30ml gel cannot really last for 4 days. We need it to be more economic or please put it on NICE in the UK so we can get this prescribed.

    We had both the gel and the cream. The gel works better but after application I felt a sting to my skin. It is also a bit dry. So remember to put emollient cream afterwards!

    I live in the UK and only recently heard about Gladskin. I am not lying when I say I have spent   ££££ obsessing over every skin product possible. I have been using for just over a week now. I don't think any other product I've used to date has ever  given me as positive results as Gladskin has. Also before purchasing anything,  I sent various emails questioning the products and there customer service level defiantly matches there product......... 5 star +

    Working where all else fails

    The Gladskin excema cream is for my daughters face/ eye area where extreme flare ups have been causing major issues. The cream is soothing and it stops the itch, we no longer need to take antibiotics and the redness is decreasing visually by the day. We have been applying the cream for around three weeks now the only alternative was hydrocortizone cream - which was not working and was also not recomended for eye area. would definitly recommend this product

    Miracle Cream

    My husband has suffered miserably with eczema for the last 18 months, his skin over his entire body has been flame red in colour and he has been in constant pain with the itching, to such a condition that his skin has bled at times.
    It has taken the UK doctors months to establish that it is eczema, after numerous appointments and an eventual skin test. The doctors have prescribed tablet after tablet, steroids, numerous creams all of which have had no effect whatsoever.
    I watched the programme ` trust me i`m a doctor `on BBC2 and so glad that i did.
    I ordered the cream and within the very first 2 days of using it, the itching had 95 % improved and the skin colour had lessened by 75% from a flame red to a dark pink.
    My husband has only been using this cream for about 4 weeks in total and his skin is already 95% back to normality.
    There is almost no itching (just an occasional one on the back of his hands, but i think that is habit) and his skin is now almost back to a normal skin colour.
    This cream is absolutely fantastic, we call it a miracle cream.
    Thank you Gladskin x

    I am very encouraged

    I suffer from psoriasis on legs, groin, back and also on the back of my head which itches a lot specially at nights, and I get itchy wounds which they scab but when the scab falls off it is still a wound and re-scabs and the process goes on and on.

    I received the Eczema Cream 30ml and been putting it on twice a day for a week and it has just ran out, because I have been putting it on from head to toe. The reasoning behind it is I thought if I apply it to just 50% of my body which is affected then harmful bacteria might spread from the other parts of the skin to colonise the treated areas again.

    The results after this one week have been very good, as I have not used any of my arsenal of steroid and non-steroid medicines, not sure if I should use both together or not, but I am so happy as I have not had my every couple of days flare-ups since, and been able to sleep better at nights without all the itching.

    I have now ordered the 100ml tube and looking forward to receiving it

    Started working for me almost immediately

    I saw the product featured on the TV show "Trust me I'm a Doctor" and decided to give it a go. Having suffered with eczema for a long time, I have tried lots of steroid creams and herbal treatments over the years and nothing worked well. The best I could ever expect was short term relief of the symptoms. This cream it felt good from the moment I applied it, and the itching stopped quite quickly and some small patches of eczema almost disappeared within a few days.

    After a month I still have some patches of eczema which hard proving more difficult to heal, but they are responding and I hardly ever scratch now, which is allowing them to heal. As a trial I had only bought a small bottle and it lasted a month. Now I trust it will work, I'm going to buy a larger, better value, bottle.

    Try it 😀

    I really am amazed with Gladskin - having spent so much money and time on 'wonder, natural products and prescribed steroids over many years, this is great and it doesn't have the side effects of steroids. It's pleasant to use, not super thick or greasy and my skin is truly looking better than it has in a long time, it's still dry (feet, legs and hands) and a few cracks (hands only) but it usually always looks super dry and cracks so easily, making it difficult to get on with life, especially outdoors and sports. Now after 6 days use it already feels so much better and more comfortable, so I'm hoping it will only continue to improve over the next few weeks. I will be ordering a new large pot very soon😃

    I am old - just on 80 years of age - with dry, badly sun-damaged skin. My skin type is "fair".  I need a twice daily emollient cream to soothe, soften and moisturise my body, face, arms and legs. I have itchy, irritated and scaly patches which are to do with dryness and not excema and for these Gladskin GEL is brilliant in soothing my damaged skin. And when it has dried I use a moisturising cream - AVEENO. Together they have made a huge difference to ease my discomfort.

    Just amazing

    I have suffered from Eczema since I was 3 years old, I am now 63. I have had hundreds of hospital visits and had tests sent to the USA to see if they could find any method to relieve my skin problem. I spent months covered from head to toe on bandages with tar ointment plastered on my skin. The itching was so bad that they used to tie my hands together so that I couldn't scratch. It has been terrible. I have used steroid ointments for over 30 years and although they do help, they don't give relief for long and the soreness returns.
    I saw the TV report on 'Trust me I'm a doctor' and immediately searched for where I could get Gladskin from. I ordered a 30ml of cream, just to test it first. I am overwhelmed with the results. I used it on my legs as they were the most affected, and within a couple of days the results were astounding. The redness has gone, the legions have virtually disappeared, and the itching has reduced greatly. All of these years of itching and soreness have at last ended. Gladskin is amazing. I have just ordered a 50ml cream and will carry on using it on the rest of my body - Thank you.

After using the Ezcema cream on severe red burning and flaking skin, after one week there is a significant change in both my neck and face. I have suffered terribly and been housebound for the last 5 months. I am oh so impressed with this cream and have recommended it no end.

    I have had an eczema flare up for the last 2 years, caused by a reaction to skin products. I have used steroid creams to keep it at bay, although it never really clears up. After using Gladskin eczema for the last 4 days, my skin has calmed down. The itching has almost stopped, my skin is not red and is much less bumpy. The only down side is, I cannot see or feel how much is left in the container, so I have no idea how long it will last.

    fine product

    I use Gladskin for acne for a long time already. I suffered from hormonal acne since I was twelve years old, now I'm almost thirty. My skin is calmer because of Gladskin, but I also use other means (like birth control pills) and I watch my diet. Gladskin definitely makes a difference, I have less breakouts. But my skin remains un calm. But I never had expected that Gladskin could make my skin completely smooth, it is not a solution for my underlying problem. But it makes my skin quieter (as many other products can not do), so I remain a loyal user.

    Positive

    I am almost 35 and have suffered for over 20 years from an (at times extreme) oily skin with mild but persistent acne (cheeks, forehead) and black dots (chin, nose). I also have trouble with red spots on my face (everywhere). I use gladskin acne in combination with the gladskin face wash now a 3 weeks 2x per day (if possible 3x). I find these products very pleasant: no tightness, no irritation. Results so far: (1) my skin is overall less oily, so my makeup last longer hold (2) I have significantly less red spots (3) the black dots are slightly decreased (4) persistent remnants of old inflammation finally seem to fade. During this period, I also have gotten two new subcutaneous inflammation on chin and forehead and a few small pimples. So I am cautiously optimistic, especially because of the matting and calming effect of the products. With no other product I was able to achieve such results without the nasty side effects (tightness, scaling, irritation). I will be completely satisfied if the inflammation never comes back.

    Super product!

    I have been using Gladskin for about 2 years now and am very happy with the result. My acne is reduced, although it is still not completely gone. On my chin pimples appear regularly and this also has to do with hormones and stress. Further Gladskin has ensured that the acne on the rest of my face is gone and just for this I will buy it again every time. I use it 2 times a day before putting the rest of my skincare on and it has really become a basic in my skincare routine!

    Severe Allergic Reaction

    For the last month we have been struggling to bring my 2.5 year old daughter's exczema under control after it got suddenly worse. Having tried the medicine prescribed by our doctor with little improvement this time round, in desperation, we purchased Gladskin Eczema cream via Amazon (because it priced it in GBP for the UK) and applied it liberally to my daughter's abdomen, arms, neck and face after her evening bath. What followed was a severe histamine response with her abdomen turning bright red, her face swelling and eyes closing. She was in considerable distress and, on medical advice, we administered anti-histamine medication throughout the night and saw a doctor the next day who advised us not to use the cream going forward. On re-reading the info leaflet, there is a small section called "Tip" which states: "If you have a very dry skin, we recommend that you use Gladskin Eczema Cream. If you are allergic to lanolin, you are advised to use Gladskin Exczema Gel." I am not aware of my daughter having a lanolin allergy as she has taken such products in the past without ill effect. However, assuming that, for whatever reason, she does now have an extreme sensitivity to it, I would have hoped that this warning would have been significantly more prominent on the packaging and in the info leaflet itself. I have taken some photos of my daughter's face showing the allergic reaction thinking that I could post them here but the review doesn't allow posting of photos. While I could now purchase the Gel to see if it has the desired effect, I am reluctant to spend a further GBP£50 and would, in truth, regardless of the cost, never forgive myself if I were to cause another allergic reaction of that magnititude. My advice would be, if you are not sure whether your child has a lanolin allergy, but do want to try this product, steer well clear of the Cream, go for the Gel and apply sparingly for the first application so you can do a skin test and be satisfied that it will not make things worse.

    Excellent results on my eczema

    70 years old, I've had eczema on the lower half of both my legs for over 20 years.  I won't describe it as severe, as I've seen others with a lot worse, but bad enough to require twice daily application of various ointments, and intermittent courses of steroid creams to keep it in check.  Over the years it has also spread to affect to a lesser extent my back, shoulders and around the nose.
    After just a few applications of the eczema cream the redness and itchiness had died down, and it has continued to improve from there.  The rough skin is gradually disappearing, and after just 4 weeks it looks the best it's been for 20 years.
    Fantastic results;  steroid creams have come nowhere near it.

    Immediate improvement

    My Eczema usually appears as red irritated blotches on my hands and I normally control this with emollient and Hydrocortisone.
    Over the last two years things got worse with
    the skin on my hands developing deep sore cracks.  I was able to resolve some of these patches with topical steroids of varying strengths but other patches proved very stubborn and refused to heal.
    Within a few days of starting to use the Gladskin Eczema cream my skin showed signs of tangible improvement as the inflammation subsided and the cracking started to heal with just my normal emmolient and no steroids.
    The cream spreads well and I find one stroke of the pump is enough to treat one hand.  I'm using it twice a day so a 30ml dispenser should last me about two weeks.
    Really impressed.

    Fantastic flexible skin again!

    I have been suffering with chronic hyperkeratotic eczema on my hands and nothing seemed to help. The skin was so hard and dry it split constantly. I saw the TV programme on BBC and ordered cream, what an amazing relief, I have flexible skin again! It has taken some weeks of application and only really started to make a big difference when i used cream and gel. I use cream morning and night and gel several times during day.
