Are you washing your Baby with harsh chemicals?
Have you ever wondered why so many Babies & kids these days have Eczema & Psoriasis? It can’t just all be coincidence.
Depending on what you are reading and when they will all mention links including the processed food we eat, with all its preservatives, pollution and in particular the chemicals we are exposed to on a day to day basis.
We don’t live in a bubble so most experts agree we need to limit our exposure to these chemicals and this starts with what we use to clean ourselves. We should be careful whenever we apply anything to our skin. With children even more so, because their skin is so delicate. Although it has a protective barrier, the skin can act as a sponge and absorb anything. Data now shows that over exposure to the sun under the age of 10 is directly related to the chance of getting skin cancers later in life. This is because the skin is so vulnerable in these early years.
Most body cleansing products contain sulfates and chemicals which are known skin irritants. These chemicals stick to the skin even after you think you have rinsed them all off. But companies continue to use them because they are so cheap. They begin to irritate the skin and dry it out. This dry skin can lead to eczema and psoriasis and once you have it, it can spread to other parts of the body.
Ecotanicals has specially formulated its Hydrating Body Wash without these chemicals. It contains polyglucoside, a cleanser naturally derived from sugar cane and coconut oil so it is effective yet mild and gentle on the skin. It also contains Pro Vitamin B5, Vitamin E and essential oils which moisturise and keep the skin hydrated. If you already have eczema, psoriasis or body acne it won’t further irritate it and begins to soothe and treat it.
Research shows that keeping the skin hydrated has proven the most effective in preventing and managing these skin conditions.
For Babies simply half a pump onto a flannel, lightly passing over the entire body, then rinse, alternatively a pump full into the bath.
For toddlers or adults a pump onto a sponge or loofah is more than enough to cleanse the whole body.
