5 Calming Ingredients To Soothe Eczema

Posted by Jennifer Adams on

If you’re looking for an all-natural product line to help soothe your little one's eczema and are not sure where to start, we’re here to help simplify the process. By keeping an eye out for these ingredients, you can make sure that you’re providing your little one with safe, calming ingredients to provide comfort for their eczema symptoms.

Everything on this list has been tested to make sure that the product naturally hydrates your baby’s skin, aids the healing process, and helps them feel more comfortable. Remember, every child is different, so you can take what works from this list and make it your own.

Colloidal Oatmeal

Not to be confused with the oatmeal you can find in your pantry, colloidal oatmeal is an ingredient that promotes soft, healthy skin. This ingredient is naturally anti-itch and it can also help to balance pH levels to further calm and soothe eczema.

Aloe Vera

People have been using this plant as a healing product for centuries. And that’s because the gel extracted from the aloe plant has a cooling effect on the skin, especially if there has been a cut or burn. In terms of eczema, aloe vera gel is a good way to keep manage itch and burning while also aiding the healing process.

Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is a wonderful soothing agent for a few different reasons. For one, it contains lipids, or fats, which are great for retaining moisture and creating a protective barrier on damaged skin. That means quicker, and safer healing.

These lipids also act as carriers for other ingredients, such as essential oils or vitamins. In fact, cocoa butter already contains high levels of Vitamin E, which contributes to healthy skin.

Cucumber

When someone asks you to think of a spa, the first image that pops into your head is probably a person with a face mask and cucumbers over the eyes. That’s because this vegetable has a cooling effect when it comes into contact with the skin, instantly soothing the burn and itch of eczema.

Just make sure the product line you choose is dedicated to using only organic ingredients. Even though cucumbers have a protective waxy outer layer, pesticides are commonly used on this vegetable and are not easy to remove once they’ve seeped into the skin. For anyone suffering from eczema, the presence of even trace amounts of pesticide can make things much worse.

Honey

Of all of the ingredients on this list, honey might be the one you’re least familiar with when it comes to skin care. But while the effects may not be as obvious as the cooling that comes from aloe and cucumber or the softening associated with oatmeal, honey is incredibly effective when it comes to calming eczema symptoms.

On the one hand, honey adds a protective layer on the skin that will help to hold in moisture and prevent the absorption of external irritants. It also has antibacterial properties to keep eczema breakouts from becoming infected.

Finally, honey is rich in Vitamin B as well as the minerals and amino acids that keep skin feeling healthy and itch-free.

TruKid - The Perfect Eczema Treatment

You probably noticed that every ingredient on our list was all-natural and organic. The cure for itchy, irritated eczema breakouts can all be found in nature, while many of the chemicals added to most moisturizers and soaps can actually exacerbate the symptoms for your little.

TruKid offers a line of steroid free eczema care for kids  including cream, lotion, body wash, sunscreen, and bubble bath all specifically designed for kids suffering from eczema. 

For example, our TruKid Eczema Daily Care SPF30+ Lotion is a natural mineral sunscreen that gently moisturizes with aloe vera, sunflower oil, and jojoba oil. 

The other great thing about natural ingredients is that many of them provide the vitamins that promote healthy, happy skin. In particular, you should be on the lookout for anything with Vitamins B and E.

Finally, you want something that is able to provide a layer of protection on the skin. You should especially seek out ingredients that are fatty or creamy, like cocoa butter, aloe, or even ones that we didn’t mention like shea butter.

It’s not always easy to find a company that uses only natural ingredients that have been proven to sooth the effects of eczema. But with TruKid, you’ll know that your little one is getting the very best treatment that nature can offer.
