Purified water, Grapeseed oil, Vegetable emulsifying wax, Extract of Kigelia africana (Sausage tree) Vegetable glycerine, Vitamin E oil, Rose-hip oil and Natural preservative*

*Natural preservative contains: Salicylic acid (extract of willow tree bark) Sorbic acid (extract from the rowan tree) Glycerin and Benzyl alcohol.




Sausage tree cream is made with an extract of Kigelia africana, a beautiful tree which grows across the continent of Africa and some parts of Australasia. It’s easy to identify by the unusual grey, sausage-like fruits which dangle jauntily from its branches. This very special tree has a long history of use in its native habitat, where it is most famous for its unique ability to heal all manner of skin complaints including eczema, psoriasis, and fungal infections such as athletes foot.

Indigenous peoples and traditional African healers have harnessed the medicinal powers of the sausage tree for hundreds of years. As well as anecdotal evidence from traditional use, there now exists a large body of scientific research to support its efficacy.

In tests, extracts from the bark of the tree were shown to contain chemicals which block the growth of harmful bacteria. Studies also showed that kigelia has the ability to inhibit harmful micro-organisms including the following:

  • Escherichia coli – known to causes abscesses
  • Pseudomonas aeruginosa – involved in skin sepsis and infections
  • Staphylococcus aureus – an organism that causes impetigo and skin abscesses*
  • Candida albicans – the fungal organism that causes thrush

This rich silky cream is light and highly absorbable, making it ideal for larger areas of skin. The product is made with 100% natural ingredients, is vegan-friendly, and paraben and fragrance free. Sausage tree cream comes with the HerbMark quality of assurance which provides peace of mind that it has been lovingly crafted by a registered herbalist trained in the manufacture of botanical medicines.

Ingredients: Purified water, Grapeseed Oil, Vegetable emulsifying wax, Extract of Kigelia africana, Vegetable glycerine, Vitamin E oil, Rosehip oil and natural preservative* – nothing else 🙂

*Natural preservative contains: Salicylic acid (extract of willow tree bark) Sorbic acid (extract from the rowan tree) Glycerine and Benzyl alcohol. This means that the product is not suitable for children under 2 years of age.

Due to increasing concerns about the use of plastics and their detrimental effect on the environment – this product is packaged in a re-usable, recyclable glass bottle. Although sausage tree cream does not contain any nut products, it is manufactured in a kitchen where nuts are handled.

I endeavour to post all orders within 24 hours. Orders from overseas are sent via Royal Mail Tracked and Signed Service and are usually delivered within 5 to 7 working days. Postage costs are made clear at the checkout before you place your order, and vary according to the weight of the product and your location. Tracking information will be sent via email once your cream is on its way.

How to use sausage tree cream

23 reviews for Sausage Tree Cream

  1. Adrienne

    I purchased this product for my son who has eczema on his feet which is very dry and itchy. I have purchased EVERY cream that claims to relieve eczema. Not one of the creams helped or moisturised his skin. I have been using the sausage cream for less than a week and it’s wonderfully moisturised his skin. Almost instantly it looked less angry and sore, I am very pleased.

  2. Caroline

    My son has a recurring dry patch of skin on his leg and also has keratosis pilaris on both of his arms (bumpy skin on the top half of his arms). I’ve tried loads of different products (most of which are still sitting on the bathroom shelf unused) this is the only cream I have found to have had any effect, the best thing of all is that not only has it resolved the problem, but it simply hasn’t come back. I totally recommend this cream and also the expert knowledge of Sarah the herbalist who has supplied it. I’ve been using her herbs for many years and have always been pleased with the service and results.

  3. Donna Smith

    My daughter has suffered with eczema most of her life and it has been a constant cycle of steroids, lotions and anti-biotics as well as horrendous pain and sleepless nights.
    We tried many different natural alternatives but nothing seemed to work.
    When we tried the sausage tree cream we were sceptical but to our surprise within a week my daughters skin was clear for the first time in years.
    I highly recommend anyone to give this a try as it’s the only thing that has ever brought relief.
    Will continue to keep a bottle to hand for any future outbreaks.

  4. Georgie Allen

    My 3 year old daughter was diagnosed with eczema and I didn’t hesitate to get in touch with Sarah, we have worked with Sarah for many years. Within 2 days of using the cream my daughters eczema has significantly reduced and is much calmer in appearance. The cream feels so nourishing and healing and smells so good too . I am so glad I didn’t have to use steroid cream on her delicate skin. Thankyou again Sarah for coming to my families rescue! What would we do without you ! X

  5. Vic

    This wonder cream has completely cleared up my eczema and stopped the constant itching that has been driving me mad for so long! Couldn’t recommend the care of Sarah (who REALLY knows her stuff!) and this excellent cream to anyone with skin irritation or especially eczema. Worth every penny!

  6. Rachel

    I am on day 3 of using the sausage tree cream and so far I am very happy. I have spent a lot of money over the years trying to find a soothing cream for my face that is natural and that will not irritate me. I tend to be quite skeptical because of all the trials and errors in the past but I have been using the cream twice a day and the rough areas are feeling smoother and less itchy. Thank you Sarah for your advice and insight x

  7. Emma Kelly

    I recently purchased the Sausage Tree Cream for my partner and so far so good, he has been using it just over a week and can definitely see some change. His skin on his hands looks so much smoother and the itching has ceased! Sarah is wonderful and I would recommend this cream to anyone suffering from skin irritations, it really does work. x

  8. Maggie

    I’ve begun to use the Sausage Tree Cream in an attempt to alleviate a long term fungal nail infection which has affected my foot and is notiously difficult to treat. Within a few days the skin surrounding my toes is calmed, soft, less irritated and natural looking. The cream has definitely helped. Thank you Sarah.

  9. Jess Teagle

    This cream has worked wonders on a patch of eczema on my hand! I tried loads of different types of creams but this was by far the best and great that it only contains natural ingredients. Very happy customer!

  10. Louisa

    I’ve begun to use the cream on my breasts as kigelia is used in Africa for breast firmness. The cream has a really nice consistency, not too thick or too thin. I did see a bit of firmness but I have used it for only over a month now so I do think I will need to continue to see more results. I must add that the customer service is great and Sarah very nice 🙂

  11. Sophie

    I have been using this cream on my 3 year old son’s eczema for the last few weeks and am so impressed by its effects, Its the first cream I’ve tried that really makes a difference. I know his eczema is driven by a dairy intolerance and most of the time being dairy free keeps his symptoms at bay but every now and again it flares again and no amount of dietary experimentation provides any clues. In these situations we’ve been resorting to steroid cream when it gets unbearably itchy and dry but then this little miracle cream came along. For us, it seems to work just as well as the steroid cream, healing the skin almost overnight. Initially I made the mistake if thinking this meant we could reintroduce dairy but the body is cleverer that than and found other areas of skin to bother (push it’s toxins out?). So alongside being dairy free, this cream seems the perfect accompaniment to keep my son’s eczema almost entirely at bay! Thank you Sarah,

    This cream couldn’t have come into my life sooner. I use it all over my body to soothe my eczema. I also use it on my 2 year olds skin where he has eczema patches. Thank you Sarah for making this cream xx

  13. Jenny (verified owner)

    I’m very impressed by Sarah, she’s extremely helpful if you have a query. After trying many over the counter remedy’s unsuccessfully, the sausage cream has had an amazing result on a nasal sore which wouldn’t heal. The doctors thought it could be a basal cell carcinoma, because of its position, difficult to do a biopsy on. After a couple of weeks completely gone. I now use this cream every day as a moisturiser. Delighted is an understatement.

  14. Hayley

    I bought a small bottle of this cream 5 days ago to help with a post viral scaley rash on my youngest daughter’s skin. Not only has that dry skin condition cleared considerably, we have had some other surprising results as well. A small patch of molluscum contagiosum has significantly reduced in size and a patch of white lumps under her eye that has been present for 2 years is now barely noticeable. My husband is using it on eczema between his fingers and our teen is applying to bumpy upper arm areas. I have used on rosacea on my cheeks and we have all seen the benefits. The beauty of this light cream is that we know it is pure and safe for all the family. It doesn’t have a heavy smell, so again is perfect for us all. I will be buying the largest size next time to have on standby.

    I have suffered with eczema for all my life. I have ruined my skin with hydrocortisone creams and god knows what else. I have spent hundreds trying to find that ‘miracle cure’ – I came across this website and purchased the cream and within two days the really sore eczema that covered my face and neck was almost gone. I literally couldn’t believe it. It really is amazing stuff. No more redness, cracks or itching. It has also given me a massive boost in confidence so I feel pretty amazing, just because of this cream. It was also packaged beautifully with a free bag of nettle tea leaves! Cannot rate this highly enough. I will be a life long fan! Thank you.

  16. Brandi Bond

    I live in Florida, USA and my son has had atopic dermatitis on his face for years. I have tried every cream, oil, lotion, and prescription medication out there. Nothing has cleared it up. Within one week of using the sausage tree cream, my son’s face is almost 100% clear. I am amazed! I just ordered my second bottle and will make sure I never run out! This cream accomplished what nothing else has and has made me a believer! I am now using it on my own face as a moisturizer and my skin has never looked better!

  17. Skye Talen

    I have suffered with eczema for the vast majority of my life, have used many products and I have never used a product that helped heal and soothe my skin as quickly as this. I was experiencing terrible eczema on my hands where the skin was cracking and bleeding from being so dry, it was also very itchy and irritating. Since using this cream, within a few days my eczema reduced so much, it is no longer painful or itchy and is healing very quickly. So happy to have found this product and can highly recommend it. Thank you Sarah!

  18. Rachel

    This cream is nothing short of a natural miracle. My daughter, 4, has mild eczema that has become inflamed sore and very itchy during this very warm weather. No amount of other emollients or creams have had any effect and we have been suffering with endless sleeps nights … until we found the sausage cream via Sarah. After just 1 application my daughter slept through the night and now after 5 days the inflammation has almost disappeared. I have also used on my son’s skin who reacts badly to bites and any open wound. The natural antiseptic works wonders on any inflammation of the skin. It has a beautiful consistency that absorbs into the skin very quickly. I couldn’t recommend this more highly. Thank goodness we found Sarah and the amazing Sausage Tree Cream.

    I have suffered eczema on and off since being a baby (not breast fed).
    I have had long periods of being fine and skin clear, but in December last year I started getting very bad eczema on my arms and legs.
    I saw the Sausage tree cream being recommended in a Facebook group and thought I would give it a try as nothing I was using seemed to help other than the steroid cream.
    I have been very impressed with the results of the cream – it is instantly soothing and takes the itch away.
    I am still using it – my eczema has not gone away completely but it is much more manageable.
    I am a medical herbalist and now I also recommend this cream to my clients.
    Thank you for creating such a nice product!

  20. MaryLou Anderson

    I purchased the sausage tree lotion on the recommendation of a friend who had done extensive research on help/cures for eczema. She then researched the best site(s) to purchase it. All of her research led her to Sarah and the sausage tree lotion. Her eczema was completely gone in a couple of weeks and her daughter noticed her skin looked smoother-bonus side effect! Well, I had to try it! I had a very sudden, small eczema breakout on the inside of my elbow. I have used the cream for less than a week and it is almost completely gone!!
    I just spent a few days up north with a girlfriend who has suffered from severe eczema her entire adult life, after just two days, there was a marked difference in her skin. She was amazed, needless to say. We got back last night and she ordered hers this morning.
    Sarah is also wonderful. I had a question and she got back to me within an hour!! That is great customer service! Thank you Sarah!!
    P.S. I would include before and after pictures, but you can’t see it anymore.

  21. Danielle

    I am so happy I found the Sausage Tree Cream to help with my baby girls eczema. This cream has worked to relieve her symptoms better than the several other creams I have tried prior. I cover it with Tallow Balm to set it. I wanted something all natural and I think I found it. I just ordered my second jar!

    Like many other good people out there, I have spent small fortunes of my hard earned money looking for skincare that works. Before I knew any better I bought high end brands with huge price-tags to help me cleanse, tone and moisturise my way to a healthy complexion and skin comfort. I listened to beautiful counter assistants who would assure me that their product was the best one for me only to find out that I paid for an expensive ornament to adorn my bathroom shelves as once again the product did not suit my particular needs. I now have an understanding that natural is best and for me it is more important now than ever to use natural products that work in harmony with my body and I am delighted to have found exactly what I need. Sarah Murphy’s skin care products are fantastic and they work. I am using the Sausage Tree Cream and the Marigold and Kukui soothing herbal balm with exceptional results and genuine skin comfort. Never again will I return to the beauty counters to stock up on chemical and preservative type skincare. Nature knows best, trust in her. Thank you Sarah.

    I am so so grateful to have stumbled across this website by accident whilst scrolling through pages on google on the best eczema treatment (as I did many nights). I was sceptical at first, as after years of trying various steroid creams and lotions nothing else had worked. The sausage tree cream at first didn’t seem as moisturising and it took a few days to see a difference in my skin, but when it started working, it definitely worked! My back and stomach are almost completely free of those dry red patches, it’s incredible and after so many months of suffering and being uncomfortable and self-conscious, I am in a place where I can fully recommend this to anyone who suffers with dry skin. You won’t regret it.
