Our Eczema Butter is an all-natural holistic product made especially for people suffering from Eczema (dermatitis). We have combined the wonders of natural ingredients to bring you this amazing product that offers a smooth texture that allows the skin to get much-needed oxygen during the healing process. We have used natural healing butter, vitamins, minerals, and botanicals to come up with this custom formulation. This butter has NO MINERAL OIL/PETROLEUM, ALCOHOL, PARABENS, PHTHALATES, or FRAGRANCE. We researched what eczema sufferers' skin really needed. It turned out that almost all Americans (and the rest of the world for that matter) are so vitamin and mineral deficient, that Eczema was becoming the norm among the population even though it actually stemmed from other causes.
What we found is that 80% of what goes ON the skin goes IN the skin. 60% can get into the bloodstream. It gets even more interesting. The bottom of your feet has the most and largest pores of your whole body. Every body organ is tied to a nerve there, as well. So, when using a product you should also apply the product to the bottoms of your feet. Those pores act like suction cups or straws that draw up all the nutrients into the body.
Our Eczema Butter is never scented. Scent can exacerbate Eczema. It can even cause outbreaks. If you suffer from Eczema consider using unscented Eczema soap and unscented laundry detergent/ Dryer sheets.
Directions: Add to your daily skincare routine to prevent the skin from drying out and causing flare-ups. Apply as often as you like. It does work best, however, if you make at least one daily application after a bath or shower when your pores are the most open and receptive.
Prevention: Wear protective clothing if you are doing a task that involves irritants or caustic chemicals. Avoid dry skin by adopting these habits when bathing:
- Take shorter baths and showers. Limit your baths and showers to 5 to 10 minutes. Use warm, rather than hot, water.
- Use a gentle, unscented non-soap cleansers. Some soaps can dry your skin.
- Dry yourself gently. After bathing, gently pat your skin dry with a soft towel.
- Moisturize your skin. While your skin is still damp, seal in moisture with our unscented eczema butter. Studies showed that applying a protective moisturizer to the skin of infants at high risk of atopic dermatitis reduced the incidence of the condition by up to 50%.
What is eczema?
Eczema is an inflammatory skin condition that causes itchiness, dry skin, rashes, scaly patches, blisters, and skin infections. Itchy skin is the most common symptom of eczema.
There are different types of eczema:
- Atopic dermatitis
- Contact dermatitis
- Dyshidrotic eczema
- Nummular eczema
- Seborrheic dermatitis
- Stasis dermatitis
Eczema can begin during childhood, adolescence, or adulthood – and it can range from mild to severe. Many people with eczema use the phrase “flare-up” to describe a phase of eczema when they are experiencing one or more acute symptoms or side effects from prolonged itchiness; severe eczema may include periods of flare-ups that can last many days or even several weeks.
Atopic dermatitis, the most common type of eczema (sometimes referred to as “atopic eczema”), results from an overactive immune system that causes the skin barrier to become dry and itchy. Eczema is not contagious. You can’t “catch it” from someone else.
While the exact cause of eczema is unknown, researchers do know that people develop eczema because of an interaction between genes and environmental triggers. Many people with eczema often report comorbid symptoms of hay fever, allergic asthma, and food allergies.
Proper, consistent skin care is essential in the prevention and management of eczema.
What are the causes of eczema?
Many factors can contribute to eczema, including an interaction between your environment and your genes. When an irritant or an allergen from outside or inside the body “switches on” the immune system, it produces inflammation, or a flare-up, on the surface of the skin. This inflammation causes the symptoms common to most types of eczema. Creases of the skin, especially the flexural areas behind the knees, elbows, lower legs, and other areas of skin that rub against each other can lead to irritation. There is also a potential genetic component to eczema that includes a protein called “filaggrin” that helps maintain moisture in your skin; a filaggrin deficiency can lead to drier, itchier skin.
Many common household items are also potential environmental irritants and can cause allergic reactions leading to an eczema flare.
Additional common triggers of eczema may include:
- extended exposure to dry air, extreme heat, or cold
- some types of soap, shampoo, bubble bath, body wash, facial cleansers
- laundry detergents and fabric softeners with chemical additives
- certain fabrics like wool or polyester in clothing and sheets
- surface cleaners and disinfectants
- natural liquids like the juice from fruit, vegetables, and meats
- fragrances in candles
- metals, especially nickel, in jewelry or utensils
- formaldehyde, which is found in household disinfectants, some vaccines, glues, and adhesives
- isothiazolinone, an antibacterial found in personal care products like baby wipes
- Cocamidopropyl betaine, which is used to thicken shampoos and lotions
- paraphenylenediamine, which is used in leather dyes and temporary tattoos
What are the symptoms of eczema?
The most important thing to remember is that eczema and its symptoms are different for everyone. Every individual’s skincare routine will also impact the affected areas of the skin differently. Your eczema may not look the same on you as it does on another adult or on your child. Different types of eczema may even appear in different affected areas of the body at different times. Some people mistake symptoms of psoriasis for eczema, although the two conditions are different.
Eczema almost always includes itchy skin. The scientific term for the itch is “pruritus.” For many people, the itch can range from mild to moderate. Sometimes the itch gets so bad that people scratch it until it bleeds. This is called the “itch-scratch cycle.”
Symptoms of eczema often include:
- Dryness, sensitive skin;
- Inflamed, discolored skin;
- Rough, leathery, or scaly skin, appearing as scaly patches;
- Oozing or crusting;
- Areas of swelling.
You might have all of these symptoms of eczema or only just a few. You might have some flare-ups or your symptoms could go away entirely. Eczema can appear red on lighter skin, whereas people of color may experience eczema as ashen skin, grey skin, darker brown, or purple in color.
Is there a cure for eczema?
There is no cure for eczema, but there are treatments. Every treatment plan should be tailored to your individual eczema symptoms. Depending on your age and the severity of your eczema, these treatments might include medical-grade moisturizing creams, prescription topical medications including topical corticosteroids, over-the-counter (OTC) home remedies, or holistic remedies.
For most types of eczema, managing flares comes down to these basics:
- Know your triggers so that you can avoid exposure;
- Implement a daily bathing and moisturizing routine;
- Use Holistic products
- prescription medication consistently and as prescribed.
Symptoms may be different from one child to the next. More often than not, eczema goes away as a child grows older, though some children will continue to experience eczema into adulthood. Adults can develop eczema, too, even if they never had it as a child.
