Managing eczema is a commitment to trying our best to help our children have healthy and happy skin. An eczema skin care maintenance routine involves using products every day, often several times a day to:
- give the skin the moisture to stop it becoming dry and itchy
- to soothe the itchiness which comes with eczema
- to help protect the skin’s natural barrier which keeps triggers out and stops more skin irritation
It’s no surprise when many of us choose products which we are going to use often and regularly to help us keep our children’s eczema skin in the best condition we can, we want something natural and nourishing.
natural skin care ingredients for managing eczema
There are a few key natural ingredients which are known to help with managing eczema. We have to mention the wonders of organic coconut oil and natural colloidal oatmeal and we have shared information about them previously on our blog. Here some other hero ingredients which we love to use to develop our natural product range at itchy baby co.
- organic shea butter and eczema
Shea butter is intensely rich and hydrating, made up by emollients and essential fatty acids which absorb well into the skin and help create a natural barrier and lock in moisture. As well as its thick consistency, which is exactly what we need to nourish eczema skin it also has anti-inflammatory agents, mostly vitamin A, which helps to soothe redness, flaking and itching.
- organic beeswax and eczema
Beeswax leaves a waxy layer on the skin which shields it from triggers and toxins in the environment and at the same time stops water leaving the skin. Its antibacterial properties can help to make the skin an unpleasant place for the bacteria which can infect eczema skin to live. Beeswax can also boost cell production which replaces the cells which have been damaged by eczema with healthy new ones.
- marshmallow root and eczema
Marshmallow root has strong anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. It also helps to speed up the skin’s healing processes when they have been damaged, making healthy new skin cells quickly.
All of these natural ingredients for eczema can be found in our itchy baby co. natural moisturiser. These ingredients share a range of properties which work together to target the symptoms of eczema and help you to give your child happy and healthy skin.
