Gilden Tree & Diabetic Foot Care

Although we didn't set out to make a foot cream for Diabetics, we've learned that our rich, natural foot cream can really make a difference on diabetic's dry feet. all started when we got a note from our accountant's father, Ken.


As a Diabetic, he'd just been prescribed medication for Neuropathy pain. At about the same time, his daughter gave him Gilden Tree's Nourishing Foot Cream. He was so happy with the results that he wrote to us. We met with him and his wife to find out how we could help other diabetics, and they were kind enough to tell us how our cream had helped.

The best news was that he never filled his prescription, and his feet were softer and smoother than ever.

Here's a short video about how Gilden Tree can help with Diabetic foot care:



We've since met dozens of diabetics who've found real relief in a product they actually enjoy using.

How can Gilden Tree help improve diabetic foot health?

Many diabetics develop problems with their feet as a symptom of diabetes, but the good news is that by making a few easy changes, your feet can stay healthier.

One of the most important things to do is to create good foot care habits - checking your feet every day, and using good quality products. For excellent advice on helping keep feet healthy when you have diabetes, please visit the Foot Care Section of the American Diabetes Foundation's website.

Which Gilden Tree products should I use if I have Diabetes?

Fortunately, we offer several different levels of moisturizing.  

  • Use Nourishing Foot Cream twice a day. Avoid the area between your toes.
  • Or use Ultra Hydrating Cream, a little thicker and richer cream which you can use all over your body.  Still avoid the area between your toes
  • Use 95% Shea Butter Balm a nearly pure, highly-concentrated balm, on especially dry places like the heels and balls of feet. Many people use the cream and then layer the balm over those very dry areas  on heels.
  • Use the Foot Scrubber® with mild soap and tepid water at the end of your shower or bath. Scrub gently, and remove just a little each day. Please be sure to check with your health care provider before first use!
