Woman struggling with painful rashes and swelling from her auto immune disease clears up her face in FOUR weeks using one ‘miracle’ cleanser
- Stacey struggles with an auto immune disease and the symptoms associated
- In 2021 she was looking for a product to clear up her painful periorbital rashes
- She heard about Maaemo Organic’s Rejuvenation Clay Cleanser ($59.95)
- Without four weeks the anti bacterial product had healed her swollen face
An Australian woman with an auto immune condition has revealed how a $59.95 cleanser helped to calm down very painful red periorbital rashes she had around both eyes.
Stacey started using Maaemo Organic’s Rejuvenation Clay Cleanser in 2021 after struggling with severe redness and looking to address the problem with organic products that wouldn’t interfere with the topical steroids she was already applying.
‘I came across Maaemo on Instagram and started reading up on the ingredients and the philosophy behind the brand,’ Stacey said.
‘It was very important for me to use a natural product that contained no harsh chemicals. I found the Rejuvenation Clay Cleanser which had amazing reviews from customers with sensitive skin. I purchased it the next day and soon it became my favourite skincare product of all time.’

Hillary Wilcox, 27, developed Maaemo Organic after studying a health science degree, quickly realising how combinations of botanicals could be used to treat chronic skin conditions – but they weren’t being widely used in commercial products.
Stacey’s main skin concern were the eczema-like rashes she was experiencing at the time, which caused swelling, blistering and dry skin.
‘Not only were they super painful, but it was something that caused me to be self-conscious in public,’ she said.
‘Strangers would come up to me in the supermarket and ask me what was wrong with my face, ask whether I needed help (suspected abuse), or whether I had been crying all day.
‘It made me feel very upset when this would happen in front of my daughters. I love being outside, but heat and sun exposure would make the rash feel like my face was on fire; it really started to limit everything.’
The anti-inflammatory properties in the Maaemo cleanser enabled Stacey’s skin to start healing and within four weeks she noticed a massive improvement.
‘Since I started this cleanser I have been free from periorbital rashes,’ she said.
‘Even when my disease starts to flare up, the skin rash has never returned. I am beyond grateful for this product. It has changed more than my skin; it has enabled me to feel normal again.’

It has been a labour of love for Hillary, organic beauty expert from the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria.
‘I would research herbs and then search for them in products in stores but I could never find the combination of ingredients that I wanted,’ the health practitioner told FEMAIL previously.
‘These botanical ingredients were so well researched and had great evidence behind them yet all of the skincare products I had in my cupboard where full of toxic ingredients.’
So she developed a cleanser, exfoliant, mist, mask, face cream and serum to help fellow Australians make the switch over to more natural ingredients, without giving up on products that genuinely work.
Hillary takes her inspiration from peer reviewed journals and ensures everything inside Maaemo’s carefully curated glass bottles has a purpose.
