Napiers Wild Yam Skin Cream

By Napiers


Scentless Wild Yam Cream with Disogenin from Wild Yam

Similar to Anna's Wild Yam Skin cream: Napiers Wild Yam is perfect for menopausal skin that has become dry, papery and lacking in moisture in the peri, menopause and post-menopause years. Trusted for more than 160 years.

Napiers Wild Yam Cream has been used in our clinical practise in Edinburgh for many, many years by herbalists supporting women's hormonal health. Recently we've noticed that many more people have become interested in Wild Yam Skin Cream through the popularity of Anna’s Wild Yam Cream in Australia. Although Napiers cream pre-dates Anna's Wild Yam Cream by many years both creams were created similarly.

A skin cream specifically designed for perimenopausal, menopausal and post menopausal women who want the additional support of herbs for balance and well being. Menopause is not a medical condition, but a natural phase in a woman's life and herbs have been used for centuries to support them.

Our customers tell us that this also makes an exceptionally good face cream for very thin, dry, mature skin too!

We use a high strength Napiers fluid extract of Wild Yam which contains diosgenin to make our cream. We also add marigold, vitamin E and use a small amount of colloidal silver as our natural preservative.

Contains the herbs Wild Yam (Dioscorea villosa) and Marigold (Calendula officinalis).

Based on user and clinical feedback we have removed the neroli essential oil previously present in this formula to ensure this product is more hypoallergenic, suitable for sensitive skin and more inclusive for all.
