Referend by a Pediatric Surgeon

I was referred to you through my babies Pediatric Surgeon. He was born with Hirschsprung disease and had numerous Operations since birth. After 18 months with a colostomy bag, he eventually had his last OP and closed it. For the first time he is using his bum, and had severe Nappy rash. We've tried everything from Bum Creams to Antibiotic Creams and nothing worked.
This product has truly changed our life's. The Escentia African Green Clay (Bentonite) is the ONLY thing that worked. I supply it as a face musk on his bum, and leave it on like normal nappy creams until the next nappy change. It is the fraction of the price of normal bum creams. Thank you for this amazing product. I will be referring this to everyone I know and will still meet.
Looking forward to using it myself.

Hello Amori,

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. We have a Hirschsprung baby in the family (I say baby, but he's all grown up at 25 years old now :)) and reading your review made us all feel quite emotional. We're beyond thrilled to hear that the green clay has been helpful and wish you both everything of the best with his healing and recovery! You'll be in our thoughts x
