Ingredients and DIY practices
There are several natural oils and butter, which can be very effective in treating and/or preventing eczema.
The first thing to mention is to use good quality and where possible organic ingredients. Always check the supplier's documentation about the products sold.
Cleaning your skin
If you have sensitive skin choose a natural nourishing soap without coloring (not even cosmetic pigments) and fragrance for showering. Shower only every second/third day. Exfoliate in a timely manner, and nourish your skin after showering. Always check the ingredient list, if you don't understand some of them also search on the internet. The best natural products contain only ingredients what every person can understand easily.
For very sensitive and dry skin we recommend you the Calendula Field Face and Body Soap , or the Schoko Magic Face and Body Soap. These two soaps don't have any kind of allergens, there is no coloring and scenting agent either.
We have two soaps for every skin type without essential oils. Olive & Kürbis Fusion Face and Body Soap with green clay for gentle cleaning, and Kaffee Arabica Face and Body Soap for exfoliating.
And lastly, we have two really old fashioned fragranced soaps: Vintage Rose Face and Body Soap with rose oil, pink clay and rose essential oil, and Lavedel Dream Face and Body Soap with white clay and lavender essential oil.
Nourishing your skin
Nourishing and protecting your skin is very important. Simple ingredients: butters and oils can do a great job on your skin.
Best butters to use
Butyrospermum Parkii Butter - Shea butter
Shea butter is fat that’s extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree. It’s solid at room temperature and has an off-white or ivory color. Shea trees are native to West Africa, and most Shea butter still comes from that region. Shea butter is technically a tree nut product, but very low in the proteins that can trigger allergies, it doesn’t clog pores, so it is appropriate for nearly any skin type. Shea butter is full of vitamins that are great for your skin, including vitamins A, E, and F. It also contains linolenic acid and other types of fatty acids your skin needs. The acids in Shea butter are similar to your skin's natural sebum - the oil on your skin. Because of this, the acids in Shea butter super easy for your skin to absorb. When you nourish rashes and other irritated skin with Shea butter, the inflammation can go down and it will promote faster healing.
