If you’re one of about 35 million Americans who experience eczema, you are likely all too familiar with the struggle of choosing skincare and cosmetics that won’t worsen the condition and irritate your skin. Why would anyone think to apply harsh chemicals (found in many cosmetics, body lotions, body washes, and more) to already irritated, inflamed and itchy skin?
Doesn’t make much sense, does it?
What does make sense is reaching for products with the most pure, natural and gentle ingredients. There are many active ingredients in thousands of skin care products are totally safe for normal skin, but can be very irritating to those with eczema. And if you’ve tried many products that claim to be gentle with no true luck, you might be using some of these harmful ingredients.
Chemical exfoliators: AHAs or BHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids and Beta Hydroxy Acids)
Those are just some of the more obvious active ingredients that don’t get along with eczema. And honestly, it can be hard to completely avoid these ingredients in skin care products all together. They’re extremely common. But if you have sensitive skin, in particular, eczema, then you can rest assured that you have options that avoid each and every one of those harmful ingredients, and instead use plant-based active ingredients to take care of skin.
