My four year old daughter has suffered from severe eczema and sensitive skin since she was an infant and it has been quite a challenge to find naturally based products that really work.
I recently had the opportunity to try the Exederm® hypoallergenic skincare line on her skin and was so pleased to learn that it does not contain parabens and is SLS/SLES free. This fragrance-free and color- free line includes a Cleansing Baby Bath, Flare Control Cream, Non-Irritating Baby Shampoo and Intensive Baby Moisturizer as well as additional products. In fact, their philosophy is “avoid irritants that trigger eczema, always use the mildest ingredients possible.”
The Cleansing Baby Bath is rich and creamy and I love the easy to use pump which avoids waste by allowing me to control how much product that I use. The mild ingredients gently cleansed her skin and I noticed that the extreme dryness she normally experiences immediately after a bath was much less noticeable after using this product for one week.
I proceeded to wash her hair and scalp with the exederm® Baby Shampoo and she did not cry at all from this shampoo since it does not irritate her most sensitive, reddened areas around her hairline. Her hair was soft, clean and easy to detangle too.
My favorite product in the exederm® line is the Flare Control Cream that I applied to her most irritated areas such as the back of her knees, tops of her feet, elbows and ankles. She literally gasped with pleasure when this formula absorbed into her skin and she said it helped a lot with the burning sensation and itching feeling. This product is designed to provide soothing relief from, “itching, inflammation, redness and rash” and it really works for us. From our personal experience, Hannah and I give this product a big “thumbs up”!
We use the Intensive Baby Moisturizer every morning and again after bath time. It is a thick, rich and creamy formula and I love how it effortlessly absorbs into the skin. My daughter inherited her skin problems from me and I often have eczema flare ups whenever I wear gold jewelry on my fingers. I applied this cream to my hands and love how it is very soothing and moisturizing yet not greasy as this has been a problem with other creams/lotions that I have tried in the past.
If you know someone who is suffering from eczema, sensitive skin or dermatitis then I would highly recommend visiting the exederm® website to learn more about this product line. My daughter and I are having excellent results using this product and I was impressed to learn that exederm® is proud to have received the National Eczema Association’s “Seal of Excellence” in 2008.
