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.

African Potato Cream Testimonials

Martie van der Berg
I bought African Potato Cream from Hayley. I'm having a problem with my muscles and the African Potato Cream is doing wonders for that problem. I just applied the African Potato Cream where I have the muscle pain and it's doing wonders for me. I had arthritic pain in my toe, two days after applying the cream, my toe was fine.

After two shoulder operations and constant pain someone gave me a jar of African Potato Cream. I used it for about nine months with great success. The pain went away and now I can sleep at night without pain.

I am 53 years of age and I am very healthy, other than back and neck problems from the degeneration of the lowest two vertebrae in my spine. The cartilage between the discs has worn away and the bones are fusing. I also get arthritis in my neck as a result. For the past two years specialists have treated me with anti-inflammatories and physiotherapy. My husband discovered African Potato Cream while on holiday. It eased his hip and lower back pain after only a few applications. As I was due to go in for more cortisone injections and physio, I decided to try the African Potato Cream as a last resort. After two days the pain subsided greatly and has continued to lessen ever since. I now have no pain whatsoever. I never took much notice of natural products before, but after experiencing the effects of this cream, I have no hesitation in saying that it has been like a miracle cure for me. It is so nice to be pain free without medication, not to mention the costs of the doctors and treatments.

I used to suffer terribly with tennis elbow. I could find nothing to soothe the pain and discomfort. Being an ardent fisherman, this caused a problem for my love of the sport. My wife bought a tub of African Potato Cream and voila! I’ve rubbed the pain away. I also suffer from a lot of acidity and gout, my joints get stiff and I find that after massaging the cream in, they are a lot more flexible. I recommend African Potato Cream to anyone suffering from the same ailments as me. In fact, my wife fights with me every day, until I’ve massaged the cream in. My skin is also beautiful and soft.

Mrs Venter's mother from Grootfontein fell - there was a huge, blue swollen spot on her wrist. It was so swollen that they thought she had broken her wrist. The African Potato Cream was applied and after two days the swelling diminished and blue bruising was much lighter.

For years I suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and lived a crippling and very frustrating life. Although my mind was on the ball, my body constantly felt tied down, bound with pain. My muscles ached constantly. My knees and feet were always swelling, making it difficult for me to get around without crutches. I was never able to help my wife with simple things like carrying the groceries from the car, getting down and doing the garden, something that I am extremely fond of. The pain and discomfort almost led to my having hip replacement surgery. One day I stumbled on the African Potato Cream. I used it morning, noon and night and to my astonishment, the pain and discomfort started to ease. For the first time in months I was able to move around the house without the use of crutches. Slowly I ventured further and further without the use of walking aids. I am now so active that I look and feel 20 years younger. I can do gardening, building, painting and anything else I desire. When I get a bit sore, I just rub my Potato Cream on. It also acts as a brilliant moisturiser for my skin. I can highly recommend this amazing cream.
