Eczema is a dry, itchy, scaly rash that can make both children and adults uncomfortable. Predominantly affecting the face, hands, knees, and feet, eczema is most often associated with allergies, but can be triggered by any number of things including wearing scratchy fabrics, using certain soaps and detergents, and even stress.
The goal for any eczema treatment or prevention regimen is to keep the skin from becoming dry and irritated. This can be accomplished by using gentle, mild cleansers and shampoos that add moisture rather than cause dryness, and using an equally gentle moisturiser that contains soothing, anti-inflammatory ingredients such as zinc and calendula. In some severe cases, eczema flare-ups require over-the-counter or prescription medication. If you suspect you or your child is suffering from eczema, consult with your doctor on the appropriate course of treatment.
Many of our amazing Original Sprout customers have seen an improvement or a complete disappearance of their eczema symptoms from regularly using Original Sprout’s Scrumptious Baby Cream and Face & Body SPF. Both of these products contain natural, vegan emollients like jojoba, apricot, almond, and coconut oils, as well as healing zinc that naturally soothes inflammation.
Meghan H. said: “Started using the baby wash, shampoo and leave-in conditioner on my almost-3 year old daughter. A rash she’s had for weeks is almost gone now. We’ve used it 3 times only. I am a convert. THANK YOU!!!”
And Michelle F. said: “I just started using these products and love them! My 4 year old has eczema and these products are really helping her. Keep up the great work Inga!”
Christie M. shared: “This is my son, who went from being a lathered butterball every morning and night and went without the ability to play outside unless the weather was just right…to a happy little boy with healthy skin and almost no flare ups from his eczema in the 2 years since we started using Original Sprout.”
Briana L. told us: “Ok, so my boyfriend got me a bottle of your natural shampoo and the conditioner, and my hair hasn’t been this soft since I was a kid! Then, (I know this sounds weird,) I tried the shampoo as a face wash. My face is extremely sensitive and every face wash dries it out and leaves it red and irritated. Well, I figured if the natural shampoo is safe for babies, it should be gentle enough for my skin too. And my skin looks so clear and wonderful..after only 3 days! I haven’t had to use moisturisers and the redness has disappeared, along with my acne. Thank you so much Inga!”
