I was inspired by my eczema prone daughters to create our range of completely natural and organic products they could use to soothe and repair their inflamed and irritated skin.
Just a few days after my first baby was born, she started developing red patches over her skin. This was dismissed by doctors as “normal” but just 12 weeks after she was born, she had full body eczema.
Finally we got a diagnosis of severe eczema and allergies and were put on a treatment plan, which included moisturising her bone dry skin up to 10 times a day. However none of the moisturisers I was prescribed helped – in fact lots of them seemed to make her skin worse, and would cause her delicate baby skin to flare up, sometimes resulting in blisters.
When I looked at the ingredients labels, the moisturisers had so many preservatives, sulphates and parabens in them – surely this wasn’t good for her sensitive skin?
