Break-Out is our strongest range, designed for acne, spots, rashes and severe skin conditions.
It contains thyme and tea tree essential oils, which may be too powerful for children under age 12.

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

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.


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’m so glad I recently stumbled across this lotion online. I have spent years, and a fortune, trying to tackle both spots and dry, sensitive skin simultaneously, only to fail at both. This lotion really seems to be the panacea. I’ve only been using it for a couple of weeks but immediately upon use it has made a big difference to all my symptoms. I can’t get enough of it and I’ve been highly recommending it to everyone. I’ve even started using it on my feet and it’s made a huge difference – I now have smooth, summer ready soles, effortlessly. Chuckling Goat, thank you, you’re doing a brilliant thing!

      Hi Emma – Wow, thanks for the kind words, so glad that the lotion is helping with your dry and sensitive skin! The goats love a good success story – x Best, Shann

    Love, love, love this stuff! My skin feels the smoothest and softest I can ever recall. Particularly effective around knees and elbows. Used along with the cleansing bar (which is also fabulous) and a daily glass of Kefir, I feel great inside and out!

    • Shann Jones (verified owner)

      Brilliant Jill, so glad you’re having such terrific results with the Break Out Kefir Combo Pack, thanks for letting us know! ; ) Best, Shann

    I have had acne rosacia on the tip of my nose for about 20 years, GP said antibiotics might work temporarily but I don’t like taking medication unless absolutely necessary. All I do at the moment is use cover up face powder and hope it doesn’t rub off as my nose really is a bright red and often has spots on it too. My daughter is now getting redness in her nose and my mother had it before me. Which would be the best product for me. I have the soap and have been using it for 5 days but feel I need more. Is it ok to put face cream on after cleansing? Thanks for any help you can give, Kathy

    • Shann Jones (verified owner)

      Acne rosacea is not a skin condition, but an autoimmune disorder that sits in the gut. You have to heat the gut, in order to heal the skin. That’s why steroid creams alone will never work! I would recommend that you drink the kefir for 9 weeks, while using the Break-Out Kefir Cleanser and Lotion. Most cost effective way to do this is the Break-Out Kefir combo pack on the website, Or feel free to ring 01239 654 072 and a member of the team will be happy to answer your questions and help out – – Best, Shann

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

    • Shann Jones (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!

    • Shann Jones (verified owner)

      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.

    • Shann Jones (verified owner)

      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

    Margaret (verified owner)

    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.

    • Shann Jones (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 – ; )

    • Shann Jones (verified owner)

      So pleased that the kefir lotions have been soothing for your eczmea, that’s great news! Hope it continues to work a treat for you – x

    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.
