WHY I SAY NO TO BATH WASH AND CREAMS, advised for eczema.

We have been advises by doctors and allergy specialists to use a particular bath wash and moisturiser for Lakyn's eczema.

 But as I do, I research everything, ingredients and the effects they cause.

I then decide if i want to use the product or not.

Now I am not about naming and shaming so wont put the names of the products. I would rather bring awareness and share what I have found.

This is where it all started, the reason I now question everything I'm told, the reason I will research and decide for myself if I will use a product on myself and my children. 

Just a few of the ingredients we found in the products recommended to use in Lakyn's bath and on his skin and the effects they may cause. 

Glycerin 

- may irritate sensitive skin

- not assessed for safety in cosmetics

Aminomethyl propanol

- classified as an irritant,

- wildlife and environmental toxicity

Methylparaben

- contact dermatitis,

- interferes with gene expression,

- skin irritation,

- suspected endocrine disruption symptoms,

- skin ailments, eczema, dermatitis, itching, hives, rash etc.

Propylparaben

- contacts dermatitis,

- suspected endocrine disruption,

- suspected skin or sense organ toxicity symptoms,

- skin ailments, eczema, dermatitis, itching, hives, rash.

Tell me why anyone would recommend this to someone with eczema??

It makes me angry and I sure know now that I will never use this in my child's bath, or on his skin.

I will never buy this product and will make people aware of what I have found along the way.

None of the ingredients are natural. NONE!!!

This was the turning point for me and the start of a very long journey to find or make a bath wash and cream the was all natural that worked for us.
