girl_with_flower You’ve tried everything for your child’s eczema and nothing seems to make a difference. We’ve been there, and we get it. This frustrating cycle of doctor appointments, intimidating medicines, and recurring rashes was all too familiar for Jennifer Adams Bunkers, CEO of TruKid skincare products. After struggling to find a solution for her sixth child’s stubborn scalp eczema, she knew there needed to be a better way. After eight years of research and development, the TruKid Rockin’ Relief Remedy was born. And it was worth the wait! So, what makes TruKid Rockin’ Relief Remedy different from all the other eczema treatments on the market? In a nutshell….everything! The healing power of this product starts with pure, naturally sourced ingredients. The serum is crafted from a potent mix of nature’s best healers, including calendula flower, hemp seed oil, and plantain leaf extract. This perfectly balanced, steroid-free serum provides soothing relief to the toughest skin issues, and is easy and safe enough for your child to use themselves! The Healing Power of Nature What makes the truly natural TruKid Rockin’ Relief Remedy so special? To get an understanding of why nature really does know best, we need to take a look at the ingredients themselves. Calendula Flower (Calendula officinalis) The calendula plant, also known as the “pot marigold”, has been used for healing and skin restoration for over nine hundred years! The power of the calendula plant comes from its high concentration of botanical-based antioxidants that destroy free radicals in the body and reduce inflammation and damage. Early evidence from research studies show that calendula has a strong effect on dermatitis and is thought to help the healing process by increasing the blood flow to problem areas of the skin. A study in 2004 showed that treatment with calendula-based cream performed better in preventing dermatitis in women undergoing breast cancer treatment than topical pharmaceutical creams. Gentle enough to use even on infants, calendula is a safe and effective ingredient that will quickly soothe and help to relieve your child’s stubborn eczema. Oat Extract (Avena sativa) Oats have been used for centuries to naturally treat a variety of physical and mental ailments, and their effectiveness when used in skincare products is widely established. Oat treatments are also approved by the FDA for skin irritations. The polyphenols contained within oat extract are the key to its effectiveness as an anti-inflammatory and moisturizing agent. One medical study published in 2008 substantiated positive evidence of the oat’s ability to cause dramatic reductions in itching and inflammation associated with dermatitis among the participants. With centuries of supporting data, oat extract is proven to be a safe and effective ingredient used to maintain the skin’s integrity and soothe problem areas associated with eczema. Plantain Leaf Extract (Plantago lanceolata) Plantain Leaf (not to be confused with the banana family plantain) is common in the wild and was a staple of medicinal healing in Native American culture. This low-growing plant can often be found right in your own backyard and has a number of powerful uses.  Centuries ago, Native Americans knew that the unassuming plantain plant had incredible healing properties. Plantain leaf contains naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory agents, making it an excellent treatment for skin irritations and conditions like eczema.  Commonly used in herbal salves and tinctures, plantain soothes itching, decreases discomfort, and promotes the skin’s natural ability to heal. Thyme Extract (Thymus vulgaris) Most of us think of thyme as just a seasoning used in our favorite Italian dishes. While that’s true, did you know that the extract of thyme is also an impressive skin healer? The thyme plant was used for centuries by ancient Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans who understood its versatile healing effects. Even Hippocrates, the ancient Greek physician considered the “Father of Western Medicine”, raved about the healing properties of the thyme plant in his collection of medical writings, Hippocratic Corpus!  Thyme naturally has an anti-microbial effect that positively impacts eczema lesions. An Ethiopian medical trial reported in the International Journal of Dermatology found that over 66% of participants treated with thyme essential oil for their eczema lesions were completely healed by the end of the trial! Organic Hemp Seed Oil (Cannabis stavia) Hemp seed oil is one of Earth’s most healing plants, and its eco-friendly and sustainable nature make it a perfect component for TruKid Rockin’ Relief Remedy. Hemp seed oil contains 80% of the essential fatty acids that our skin needs to stay healthy and moisturized and works by getting deep into the source of problem skin. This perfectly balanced oil closely mimics the oils that our skin naturally produces, making it perfect for soothing dry skin and painful patches of eczema. The unique balance of hemp’s omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids was examined in a 2005 Finnish study published in the Journal of Dermatological Treatment. This research showed that those treated with hemp seed oil saw significant reduction in inflammation and dermatitis. Hemp also has a very unique quality, in that it has the genetic permission to enter skin cells and begin to heal from within. Not to mention, hemp seed oil is a powerful anti-inflammatory agent and naturally contains antioxidants and Vitamin E. rockinreliefremedy_smallImpressed? So were we!
