African Potato Cream

A potent skin healing and pain reducing anti-inflammatory cream

African Potato Cream is a deep penetrating plant-based ointment used to treat the symptoms associated with

  • Muscle and joint pain, and painful conditions like swelling, sprains, stiffness, varicose veins, tennis elbow and gout
  • Auto-immune disorders like arthritis and fibromyalgia
  • Inflamed skin conditions like psoriasis, eczema, acne, rashes, sunburn and minor burns
  • General skin conditions like bed sores, warts, stretch marks, scars and dry skin

The main active ingredient, African Potato extract (Hypoxis Hemerocallidea), has high phytosterol content which possesses powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Evening Primrose and Wheat Germ oil promote skin healing. Vitamin E, a potent antioxidant, protects against environmental aggressors. Avocado oil nourishes and relieves itching. Camphor oil is a natural antispasmodic and provides relief from spasms and cramps, while cooling the skin. Aloe adds additional anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and heal. It also absorbs easily, drawing in the beneficial qualities of the other restorative ingredients.


  • Apply to the affected area as frequently as needed
  • Use on clean, dry skin
  • Gently rub into skin until the cream is absorbed
  • On sensitive, damaged or broken skin, spread the cream in your hands and gently pat into the affected area until absorbed

I am due to have both knees for replacement. When I use the African Potato Cream, three to four times a day, I find great relief.

For over two years I suffered from a fungus under my breasts and in my groin. Although it was not itchy or sore, it was very unsightly and developed a slightly musty smell. It was just as bad in mid-winter, as it was in summer. I tried ointments, salves, pills and antibiotics, some costing over R800. Nothing helped. Sometimes it went away for a fortnight and then would be back, as virulent as before. A friend recommended African Potato Cream. Although sceptical about health shop remedies, I was desperate and bought a jar of your cream. Within weeks it improved and disappeared within three months. I have used the cream fairly regularly and so far it has been completely successful. I cannot recommend it more highly for what I had and it also seems to ease arthritis. Please don’t ever change the formula!

Our "burned dog" is doing very well - I am using African Potato Cream and his red skin has turned pink and hair is starting to grow in little tufts.
