In this post, I’ll be taking a look at beautiful natural skincare brand Ezápé Naturals, and learning more about their gorgeous organic body care products.
The range consists of 2 products: a luxurious body butter with rosemary, and a golden balm with chamomile and calendula.
It was interesting to learn that the brand’s founder, Vanessa, invented the products to help treat her daughter’s eczema. I suffer with psoriasis which flares more often in winter, so I was particularly curious to see how these products could help improve my skin condition.
I аm іn love wіth every рrоduсt thаt we hаnd-mаkе and sell. Mу business іѕ аll about mаkіng ѕаfе nаturаl аnd effective products fоr dry and sensitive skin ~ Vanessa Karikari
What I love most about this range is its simplicity. There are few ingredients in the jar, and each ingredient is beneficial. There are no cheap fillers or unnecessary ingredients.
Let’s take a look at the individual products.
Disclosure: I received Ezápé Naturals Rosemary Body Butter and Chamomile Balm to try. My opinions are my own and honest.
Ezápé Naturals Rosemary Body Butter
This gorgeous vegan-friendly butter contains 100% natural ingredients, which are 99% certified organic.
Opening the jar, the butter is thick, rich, and white. It melts into a silky oil on the skin. With the aroma of herbal rosemary, the rich nutty shea also comes through.
I especially love using it on my hands, which really suffer in the winter months, both with general dryness, cracked skin, and psoriasis on the backs of my hands and wrists.
It always gets worse for me over winter, when the telltale bumps rise and spread into scaly patches. If I don’t treat my psoriasis, it cracks, itches, and really hurts.
Managing my psoriasis seems to be about keeping the patches well hydrated, which this body butter does.
It does take a little while to sink in, but once it has, my skin is left velvety. The skin on my hands looks visibly improved, and fine lines are softened.
The butter keeps my skin comfortable for quite some time. I reapply to my hands after a couple of hours, or after washing.
I am so pleased that my psoriasis seems improved by the butter! Obviously applying products to psoriasis never fixes it, but it certainly does make it feel and look better.
Let’s have a look at the lovely ingredients.
Ezápé Naturals Rosemary Body Butter ingredients
Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Nut Butter, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Limonene, Linalool.
Shea nut butter
This has to be one of the best moisturisers in my opinion. My skin loves it over all other emollients.
As well as moisturising, it also reduces inflammation, which is why I’m so pleased to use it in products to treat my psoriasis. This amazing ingredient also helps to repair the damage done by winter because it supports collagen production. It’s rich in vitamin A, and E, which further improve skin condition.

A popular natural alternative to treating eczema and psoriasis.
With its antibacterial and antifungal properties, it makes a great natural treatment as well as providing moisturisation. Learn more about using coconut oil for eczema and psoriasis.
Sunflower seed oil
This oil prevents loss of moisture from the skin so is extremely beneficial in treating dry skin conditions.
Sunflower seed oil is protective, meaning skin will be less susceptible to environmental stressors – great if winter is making your flare ups worse.

Rosemary leaf oil
Naturally antiseptic, so if your psoriasis or eczema is open and sore, rosemary will help to stop it from getting infected.
Note that the rosemary in this product means it’s not suitable for use in pregnancy, or for children under 18 months old.

Ezápé Naturals Chamomile Balm
Next, the chamomile balm – with an impressive 100% natural ingredients, and 55.5% certified organic ingredients. This cheerful balm is golden and fragrant. I love the smell of chamomile. It melts into a delicious oil on contact with the skin.
What I love most about this balm is its versatility. It can be used on the whole family, including babies.
Use it as both a cleanser using the oil cleansing method, and a moisturiser on your face or body.
As a cleanser, I found it removes makeup really well. But I use it most for treating especially dry patches or areas where my psoriasis has flared. I’ve also used it as a lip balm. It seems to be more of a barrier cream, which works well if you have hands in water often, or work outside.
Just like the butter, the balm worked beautifully to soothe my dry skin and psoriasis.
Jonah also liked this balm. I was so surprised how well it treated irritation on his face. He loves to eat oranges, but the juice leaves him with little red bumps which the balm calmed very nicely. We used it as a nappy balm, and it kept redness at bay.
Let’s take a look at the ingredients.
Ezápé Naturals Chamomile Balm ingredients
Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Aloe Barbadensis Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Nut Butter, Calendula Officinalis (Calendula) Flower, Helianthus Annus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Cera Flava (Beeswax), Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Anthemis Nobilis (Chamomile) Flower Oil, Geraniol, Linalool, Citronellol, Limonene.
This soothing ingredient can help reduce redness and scaling. It can take down the heat and itching that so often accompany eczema and psoriasis.
Aloe is moisturising, hydrating, and speeds healing. Learn more about using aloe to treat psoriasis.
This gorgeous herb is used in all kind of skin preparations and is especially useful in treating eczema and psoriasis.
Calendula is healing, soothing, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, and supports collagen production to help skin repair. Read this interesting article on using calendula to treat psoriasis.
Natural beeswax can be one of the best treatments for eczema. Beeswax creates a barrier on the skin to prevent allergens from coming into contact with it. This barrier also prevents loss of moisture from the skin.
Beeswax is antibacterial, and helps prevent infections where skin splits. Why does beeswax work so well against eczema?
Such a wonderful herb, chamomile has a long history of traditional use as it soothes and heals skin.
Chamomile soothes the skin since it works as an anti-inflammatory. It eases redness and irritation. Use this on your baby without worrying! Learn more about using chamomile to soothe dry skin.

Final thoughts on Ezápé Naturals body care
What a beautiful range of body care. I’m so glad that I discovered these products through their creator, Vanessa.
I think it’s amazing that Vanessa has harnessed the power of nature to help treat her little one’s eczema. Not only that, but shared her wonderful products with us! Medical treatments for eczema and psoriasis usually consist of steroid creams, which can be damaging with long term use. We need more natural remedies in this world.
I enjoyed using these products. They have a real feel-good factor, and they definitely helped soothe and heal my psoriasis. I’ll be buying more, and I’ll recommend them to friends and family, as well.
