Tender Defender is superb for adults and older kids who have skin healing needs, whether it’s to get through cold and flu season or to address chronic skin issues.
What makes Tender Defender so special? When we created it for diaper rash, we chose the most powerful botanicals for the job. Those same powerful botanicals that work in the diaper environment do wonders for many skin healing issues for all ages including: eczema, dermatitis, dermabrasion, and ostomy site care.
Scientific literature bears out the power of these botanicals to work on the skin of older kids and adults. Here is a little taste of what science says about Tender Defender’s ingredients and how they support skin healing.
- Aloe has growth factors that aid in tissue repair.
- Concentrated aloe, unique to Tender Defender, may help skin cells regenerate more quickly than full-strength or watered-down aloe.
- Aloe provides lignen that allows other ingredients to penetrate deep into skin, nourishing it, encouraging skin healing.
- Apricot kernel oil is an excellent source of Vitamin E, which is lost rapidly in wounded skin. Vitamin E is particularly useful for skin ulcers and burns and may be especially helpful for skin healing for diabetics.
- Rosehip seed and apricot kernel oils contain essential fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 that human bodies cannot produce for themselves but are absolutely necessary for skin healing.
- Rosehip seed oil has been demonstrated to aid in post-surgical wound healing and diabetic ulcer healing.
- Niaouli is a highly effective antibacterial that is especially active against Gram positive bacteria.
- The niaouli in our formulation is unique. It has less cineole, a known skin irritant, than anything else in the Melaleuca family.
- High altitude lavender is an antioxidant with antifungal properties. It is effective for treating insect bites and burns.
- Roman chamomile treats eczema better than hydrocortisone cream, improves hemorrhoids, and heals dermabrasion faster than steroids.
- Ginger is an analgesic (reduces pain) that has antibacterial properties, notably against E. coli.
- Ginger increases blood flow in skin, supporting skin healing for even the most stubborn wounds, including skin ulcers.
What does all this mean? Tender Defender is an excellent support for skin healing for older children and adults. We get frequent comments that it’s effective for external hemorrhoids, sunburn, chafing, allergic reactions, contact dermatitis, and many other skin issues. We have even had reports of Tender Defender supporting skin healing for diabetic skin ulcers, one of the most difficult dermatological conditions to treat.*
My husband has Lou Gehrig’s disease and had gotten a rash on his bottom, so my brother told us about the cream [Tender Defender] and gave us a sample [Travel Pack]. My husband liked the way it felt on his skin, even numbing it, he likes it better than his pain patches. It sure does heal the rash fast. Now I use it all over to keep it soft and rash free. –Connie H.
This product is amazing! I was sick for a week and my nose was red and in pain. I tried everything, Vaseline, lotions, even chapstick but my nose was still scaly and killing me. As soon as I tried the Tender Defender my nose started to feel better. It was so soothing and within a day my bright red nose was healing. I no longer have a red nose but I’m still using the gel to keep my elbows smooth. It’s fantastic! –Lindsay P.
I got this as part of the beta [testing] program, and we used used it on my 3 year old’s chronic eczema, for which the doctor had prescribed steroids. It turned his skin from scabby to clear over the period of a week. Great stuff! –David G.
I had this weird allergic reaction to a mango – apparently the skin of a mango has the same oil as poison ivy. My face and lips are now super itchy and nice and swollen. I put Tender Defender on it and it stopped itching and feels great now!!!!!!!!!! I’m not even going to take more Benadryl bc its messing with my milk supply and the TD feels so good. –Lauren L.
This product is amazing on the itchy, reddened patches on my hands. I am getting a rapid response to using it just like you would for a baby with diaper rash. I put it on and let it dry, then use the cream I got from the doctor. Finally, some relief! –Emma D.
Used it for jock itch, and it did a great job! It was gone in a couple days. My wife uses it for her calluses and cracked dry feet. Keeps them from cracking. She rubs it in her hands. Keeps her hands nice and moist too. And she put it on two sores…on her feet, and Tender Defender took care of it. –B.
Anyone who has ever had cold sores knows how painful they can be. I use Tender Defender on cold sores. It promotes healing and soothes the pain. My cold sore seemed to heal a lot faster than usual.
I also use it after working in the garden, it’s great for sunburns, chapped or wind-burned skin. A little bit goes a long ways and I love the fresh herbal scent. It works great! Thanks Tender Defender! I couldn’t be without it! –Barbara M.
I had an allergic reaction to my fake nails so I applied Tender Defender to help heal my sore hands. It worked great! It seems to help soothe and heal a variety of rashes, dry skin and even allergic reactions too. Great stuff! I need to purchase a case of it for summer bug bites and sunburns. My friends all use it too. Great product….a definite MUST!!! –G.G.
My grandson kept asking me to scratch his back. After about the third time, I applied Aloe Baby to his entire back. He never asked me to scratch it again as the itching was gone! –Beverly S.
This product is FANTASTIC! My daughter Emily broke her arm last month (she is 8 yrs old). Her cast was irritating her skin around the edge of the cast, almost wearing a blister in one spot. I put some Tender Defender on the area. It did not sting at all…she said it cooled the irritated area & made it feel better! The next day it looked less inflamed & was not as sore. I also put some on my hands, which are constantly dry, chapped, & often crack & bleed due to repeated daily handwashing. This soothed, smoothed & healed my hands better than anything else I have tried. Thank you for such a fabulous product! –Stacy R.
I used the product on a skin irration on my 12 year old. She had very irrated skin due to an over-use of bandaid/medical tape to keep an area covered and protected. She said it immediately soothed her discomfort. I put it on a bad sunburn on my neck. Again, I experienced immediate reflief. Great Stuff! –J.G.
