Is there an alternative to steroid cream?
Samara was miserable with eczema. She's suffered from it since she was two years old. A combination of cold autumn days and dry weather meant she suffered the worst attack of eczema ever. She's used plenty of steroid creams over the years but decided she just didn't want to put it on her skin anymore.
We sent her the skin balm, colloidal oatmeal bath soak and kawakawa oil. Look at the results, her skin responded so well to the natural and pure ingredients. She feels so much better and we are thrilled she now has a natural product to help with eczema flareups.
Use the colloidal oat soak in your bath: soak for only 10-15 minutes so your skin doesn't dry out further. The kawakawa, oats, calendula and chamomile will soothe your skin and bring the pH back to normal. Rinse briefly in the shower then apply the Kawakawa Oil all over. It's light and will absorb quickly. Use the Kawakawa Balm on rough or scaly patches of skin.
What is eczema?
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is a chronic skin condition characterized by dry, itchy, inflamed, and irritated skin. It's a common condition that can affect people of all ages, but it's especially prevalent in infants and children. Eczema often appears as red, scaly patches on the skin, which may be accompanied by oozing or crusting.
The exact cause of eczema is unknown, but it's believed to be a combination of genetic, environmental, and immune system factors. Individuals with eczema typically have a weakened skin barrier, allowing irritants, allergens, and bacteria to penetrate the skin more easily and trigger an inflammatory response.
Why does Kawakawa help eczema?
Kawakawa contains bioactive compounds myrsticin and diagambanyin which possess anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. These compounds help reduce inflammation, soothe irritation, and provide relief from itching associated with eczema. Additionally, Kawakawa supports the healing process of damaged skin.
