Level 3 – Strong

This is our hero product – the one that won the National FreeFrom Skincare Bronze Award for Troubled Skin.

Combining the health benefits of kefir with the power of tea tree essential oil and thyme essential oil. This lotion contains our own raw goats milk, our award-winning goats milk kefir and natural oils, including Finnish oat oil famed for its soothing colloidal properties.

You can buy our Live Kefir Lotion with the click of a button and have it delivered to your door. This live kefir lotion is strong stuff, designed to combat serious conditions.

Age +12, as tea tree can be strong for children. Best combined with a course of our drinking kefir, to maximise health benefits.



Level 3 – our strong formulation natural skin care

Shann says: I was first inspired to create this lotion when I saw an article reporting that a study from Leeds Metropolitan University showing thyme essential oil was more effective against acne bacteria than benzoyl peroxide, with none of the redness and drying that the chemicals create.Hmm… I thought…what if I combined thyme essential oil with tea tree essential oil, and then mixed the two essential oils with our own kefir, and our own raw goats milk? That should pack a punch…and indeed it did!

The combination of these elements, along with Finnish oat oil, famed for its soothing colloidal properties, creates some kind of magic. The goats milk is anti-inflammatory, calming and cooling redness, and soaking through the barrier of the human skin. The live kefir, made with live kefir grains, helps to re-balance the beneficial bacteria on the surface of the skin.

At the 2015 World Congress of Dermatology all talk was of the skin microbiome – the trillions of bacteria on your skin that keep nasty ones out and good ones in. Your skin microbiome is an ecosystem, and live kefir feeds it! I’ve used this cream personally to help with blemishes on my skin and cracked heels and hands. We use it on the farm to sort out any mysterious rashes or bumps, and it soothes the sting of insect bites.

Great as a twice daily skin lotion for recurrent conditions… our strongest formulation! To receive the maximum benefit, we suggest that you team this natural skin care with the Break Out Kefir Cleanser, which you can use exactly like a soap, for face, hands and body. It won’t dry your skin, but gives a soothing herbal boost and gentle natural antibacterial action.

Then we also suggest that you drink a course of the goats milk kefir at the same time – to boost the health benefits.


All of our kefir lotions are made in small batches, by hand, on the farm. Lovingly made from food-grade ingredients, kefir lotions are free from any nasty dyes, perfumes, petrochemicals, parabens or phthalates. Our kefir lotions are suitable for people who may be prone to eczema.We begin with a base of our own raw goats milk and our award-winning kefir. To this kefir goodness we add olive oil, rice bran oil and a special oat oil from Finnish oats, specially selected for their skin-nurturing properties.

The goats milk is anti-inflammatory and penetrates the barrier of the human skin, carrying  its valuable cargo of vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Our live culture kefir balances and nourishes the bacteria on the surface of the skin, helping to protect and improve the appearance of the skin. Natural oils bathe the skin in moisture.

    I have eczema patches on my body, but more distressing is the sore, sensitive, scaly skin on my face. Can the lotions be used on facial skin? Also I suffer from Crohn’s disease, is there any evidence that kefir can help?

      Hi Joan – Your Crohns and your eczema are connected – both signs of damage to your microbiome. These are autoimmune issue that sits in the gut – which is why skin creams alone haven’t helped you so far. I would suggest that you drink 9 weeks of the kefir while using the Soothing Kefir Lotion and Cleanser, both of which may be used on the face. If you’d like more info about how all of this fits together, have a look at the video here: There is evidence that probiotics help Crohns, more info here:

    I have placed an order today for the baby melts and the breakout lotion as me and my 1 year old daughter both suffer from eczema. I am really looking forward to trying a product that has such good reviews! I’m hoping I’ve finally after years, found a cream that works! Alix.

      Thanks Alix, hope it works a treat for you and your daughter! Best, Shann

    Hello, just seen you and your products on a BBC programme, my grandson is 7 and has suffered from eczema since birth, can we use your products on him ?

    • (verified owner):

      Hi Yve – Eczema is not a skin condition, but an autoimmune disorder that sits in the gut. You must heal the gut, in order to heal the skin. To do this, I recommend 9 weeks of the drinking kefir, while using the Sensitive Kefir Cleanser and Lotion. He will also need to avoid some dietary things like cows milk and sugar. More info on the video here: Best, Shann

    I would like to try your skin care line. I have been drinking cow’s kefir for over 2 yrs. and see I should be drinking goats kefir
    Do you ship to Canada. Also I may be in London in the early spring, is there a store or place that your line can be

      Hi Donnamarie – We do ship our skincare internationally. To see shipping rates, simply fill your basket and go as if you’re planning to checkout – the website will calculate your charges before you actually pay. We do not sell through any outside retailers – only direct from the farm, so that we can stay in close personal contact with all our customers, and coach them through the “Kefirising” process! Best, Shann

    Could you use this lotion as a shampoo, as my daughter has scaly, sensitive scalp? thanks

    • (verified owner):

      Hi Averil – You can use any of our cleansing bars – the Soothing one works well – as a shampoo, and then rub the lotion into her scalp with fingertips at night. We do have a shampoo and conditioner in the pipeline! Best, Shann

    I love this lotion. In my experience it seems to slow the spread of the outbreak. I’ve found that applying the cream morning and night to sore spots soothes it straight away and has taken away the need to use cortisone for relief. I love that I’m not pumping cortisone
    into my body and giving my body a better
    chance to heal. I’ve not found an excema cream that beats this one. Only one thing, I moving to South Africa and there is no Chuckling Goats there:-( I’m gonna have to buy a big big bottle of breakout!
    You rock Chuckling Goat!

      Thanks Tanith – Goats are so happy that you’re not having to use cortisone for your eczema anymore! x

    Using this cream has significantly reduced the need to use a strong steroid cream that I have on prescription. I suffer from sebhorreic dermatitis in my ears and use this cream along with the breakout soap and cleanser for great results.

      Brilliant news, David – so glad the Break Out range products are helping you! They’re our hero products – strong stuff. Hope you continue well – Best, Shann

    I have had a recurrence of pustulant eczema on the sole of my foot which requires strong steroid cream. I have found that using the Kefir lotions have helped to soothe the severe itching the eczema causes, as well as helps stop the skin becoming dry and cracked. On a previous break out several years ago, the healing process was much longer and the cream prescribed didn’t help the steroid with the incredible itch or the sore dry & cracked skin. It feels like a cool cloth on an aching forehead and has allowed me to go about the day without wanting to scratch the skin from my foot, which of course causes the rash and blistering to spread.

    • (verified owner):

      So pleased that our kefir lotions are helping the itching and dry cracked skin for you, Margaret! That’s great news. The goats will be thrilled – ; )

    I first heard about Chuckling Goat on the steve wright show and ordered my first lot of Kefir and tool kit. I loved the lotion from the start noticing my skin seemed plumper, smoother and generally looked a lot healthier. I now use it daily morning and night. I have found the “Breakout” lotion the best for me, it soothes my skin and keeps it free from irritation but best of all I have noticed scarring I had on my legs is far less noticeable and the skin is much smoother. The lotion is now part of my daily routine, I am so grateful that I happened to be listening to Steve on that fateful day.

Just wanted to say, there is no way this kefir will last 21 days, regardless of what the food lab says. It's so delicious I can't see it lasting much longer than a week.

I've really missed kefir since I accidentally killed my grains in December. I just love it's tart, fizzy flavour. You have the consistency perfect too. The only issue I have is how to not drink a whole bottle at a time and more than once a day.
