TruKid Bubble Podz: Eczema-safe Fun for Everyone! Who doesn’t love playing in a bathtub filled with bubbles? Our kids do, and we’re sure that yours do too! Playing in the bath is a staple of childhood, and every parent loves the look of wonder and simple joy on their child’s face as they pop bubbles and splash around. For children with sensitive skin, however, most bubble bath products can cause flare-ups of eczema, and overall skin irritation, not to mention that dry itchy skin, usually following a typical bubble bath. So how can those with the most sensitive skin still enjoy the fun of a bubble-filled bath time? Drum roll please…. Introducing TruKid Eczema-safe Bubble Podz! Specially formulated for children (or even adults!) with problem skin, these Bubble Podz are the secret to an eczema-safe bath! Accepted by the National Eczema Association, these biodegradable, no-mess Podz are specifically designed with your child’s skin needs in mind. In contrast to similar products on the market today, Bubble Podz are extra-gentle, fragrance-free and won’t irritate or dry out your little one’s skin!

Safe and Natural Ingredients Here at TruKid, we believe in creating products that are truly safe and made from healthy, natural ingredients. Your skin is the largest organ of your body, and in order to maintain overall health and wellness, it is important to use only the most natural products! TruKid Bubble Podz are carefully crafted with our mission in mind, and will not only soothe problem skin but makes taking a bath fun again! So, what’s in Bubble Podz that make them so effective? The answer is simpler than you might expect! The ingredients in the Bubble Podz formula were selected to give the most benefit to children’s skin, while leaving out artificial colors, fragrances, and harsh chemicals. Ingredients such as soothing colloidal oatmeal and skin-protecting corn starch and sugar are some of the natural products that give Eczema-Safe Bubble Podz their power. Why are these so good for your child’s sensitive skin? Let’s look deeper! ECPodz-EcoEx-brightColloidal Oatmeal: Colloidal oatmeal is an amazing natural ingredient that has been used as far back as ancient Roman times for skincare.  Oatmeal is made from ground oats, and colloidal oatmeal is simply an extra-fine ground form that readily absorbs and holds onto moisture. The natural properties of the colloidal oatmeal make it a perfect ingredient for sensitive skin, and our Bubble Podz! Colloidal oatmeal contains several naturally occurring compounds that provide benefits to sensitive skin. Its biologically active properties act as an emollient and buffer for itchiness, dryness, and irritation. It has also been shown that oatmeal has anti-oxidant properties and helps to reduce symptoms of inflammation when used topically, making it a great choice to soothe and moisturize your little one’s skin! There have been several research studies over the years that have continued to support what ancient cultures have always known about the skin healing effects of colloidal oatmeal. In fact, even the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved colloidal oatmeal as a powerful skin protectant! Pure Sugar Cane: Everyone knows that sugar is delicious, but did you know that it also has amazing benefits for your skin? Cane sugar has a long history in treating a number of ailments, and its use in natural skin care products is becoming increasingly popular. Pure cane sugar is used in TruKid Bubble Podz to maximize the benefits for skin health. The reason for sugar’s success in skincare lies in its naturally occurring glycolic acid which has a moisturizing effect while helping to protect the skin from environmental toxins. It’s also great at reducing blemishes, will never clog your pores, and helps your skin to restore its natural balance of oils! Allantoin: You may have never heard of allantoin, but trust us – it’s amazing! Allantoin is a natural organic compound produced by several types of organisms. Aside from its powerful moisturizing effects, it is also used primarily in skin care products for treatment of eczema, dermatitis, scars, and much more! So what makes allantoin so good for the skin? This unique natural compound works by depositing proteins onto the skin’s surface and producing a keratolytic effect – which simply means it does a great job softening the skin! Another great feature of allantoin is the ability it has to slough away dry, damaged skin while gently moisturizing, for an all-natural way to treat and soothe eczema! The FDA has approved allantoin as a safe, steroid-free treatment for skincare and common skin issues. The best part? All sources of allantoin are non-toxic, non-allergenic, and odor-free, making it safe for use on children with even the most sensitive skin types! Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSa): When most people looking for natural products see sodium lauryl sulfate in the ingredient list they run – but wait! The SLSa in TruKid Bubble Podz is an all-natural ingredient that isn’t at all the dangerous chemical that has gotten such a bad reputation these days. True to the nature of our company’s philosophy, we strive to provide only the purest natural ingredients in all of our products, and the Eczema-Safe Bubble Podz are no exception. SLSa is naturally derived from coconut and palm oils and carries the ECOCERT designation. What does this mean? ECOCERT is a world-wide organic certification organization. Their mission is to inspect and certify fair trade food, cosmetics, and textiles to their stringent quality standards, giving you peace of mind that only the best ingredients will be used on your child’s sensitive skin! The SLSa ingredient in our Bubble Podz helps to create the long-lasting bubbles that will put a smile on your child’s face!  Its large molecular size cannot penetrate the skin’s surface, making it a great choice for gentle and effective cleaning for any skin type! How to Use Bubble Podz Now that we’ve gone over what makes the ingredients of Bubble Podz so great for sensitive skin, how do you use them? Well, it’s easy! No parent enjoys the mess and waste associated with traditional bubble bath products. If you aren’t accidently dumping half a bottle into the tub, you’re probably wasting precious time scrubbing out the filmy ring left behind by chemical laden products. With Bubble Podz, you never have to worry about either! Our Eczema-Safe Bubble Podz come in a 24 pack of individually packaged podz, perfectly sized for bath time use. All you need to do is add one pod to running bath water, and the packaging will dissolve away leaving you with a tub full of long-lasting bubbling fun! Want even more bubbles? Try holding the pod in your hands under the running water to create extra agitation of the ingredients and an even greater bubble effect! Differences in water quality can affect the amount of bubbles produced, so if you want more bubbles than you are getting with one pod – give two or three a try! The best part is, when done in the bath your child’s skin will be left feeling soft and moisturized without any itchiness or irritation that traditional bubble baths can cause!
