About My Trusty® Skincare

Over twenty years ago, Salisbury District Hospital developed a moisturising cream for patients recovering from burns and plastic surgery.

The product was developed with the assistance of clinical scientists and the hospital pharmacy department and has been popular with patients ever since.

‘Skincare innovation from the NHS’

The cream contains 5% sunflower oil, which helps replace essential fatty acids and improve the texture of the skin on application. Staff in the hospital found it worked for them as well as their patients as a general skin moisturiser and to replenish dry hands.

Formally launched in 2013, My Trusty® sunflower cream was well received and featured widely across the media. A lavender scented version of the sunflower cream soon followed to give the cream a modern twist for a broader audience.

Consumers reported beneficial effects on a range of inflammatory skin conditions, including dry, itchy skin, dermatitis, eczema and acne.

Identifying a need in the market for skincare solutions for dry, sensitive skin, My Trusty® body butter was launched in July 2014. Its rich blend of cocoa and shea butter proved an instant hit, with the body butter achieving silver award status in the best new body care category at the Pure Beauty Awards in November 2014.

‘Award winning skincare for dry skin’

Following on the success of this accolade, My Trusty® body butter has since been shortlisted by Prima Baby Awards as a finalist in the ‘Mum’s Hero Beauty Product’ category.

November also saw the launch of My Trusty® face & body oil. This unique blend of grapeseed, sunflower and rosehip oils is 99% natural.

2015 promises to be another exciting year for My Trusty® with two new product launches planned for the spring in addition to the results of the Prima Baby Awards.
