Eczema is a skin condition that often first manifests in childhood, part of a trio of immune system conditions triggered by environmental factors, food sensitivities, genetics, and contact with irritants or allergens. While many individuals grow out of it, about half of patients carry it into adulthood. It’s marked by symptoms of dry, inflamed, itchy skin.
Treating a child’s eczema can be a frustrating process: What works for one child may not work for another, and there are likely several courses of treatments to try before finding what precisely works for your child. While there’s no universal cure for eczema, there are several natural home remedies that can help ease the symptoms, such as vinegar baths, coconut oil and African black soap. In addition to these natural methods, there are products on the market to supplement them.

They pride themselves on providing chemical-free, natural formulations containing natural ingredients such as coconut and palm oil, and colloidal oatmeal.
