Eczema is a topic that’s become very near and dear to my heart over the past year. Since our son, Yusuf, was diagnosed with eczema early last year, it’s been a long journey of treatment, healing and management. Along the way, I’ve learned a lot about the condition, as well as some of the best ways to control eczema. And thankfully, we’ve been doing very well, with the exception of a few flare-ups here and there.
What I wish I’d had when I was starting out on this journey is a one-stop shop for all things eczema – a place that I could go to explore all the different products and treatment options available for this new (to me) skin condition.
Until a few months ago, I didn’t know if a place like this was possible, let alone if it actually existed. Turns out, it does exist, and it’s called The Eczema Company!
I was contacted by the lovely Jennifer from The Eczema Company because she’d seen my post on managing my son’s eczema, and she could relate because she’d gone through the same battle with her own son as well. She started the company to help others who are dealing with the daily challenges of managing eczema. Her family tried several different products and have made their favorites available in their online store.
The Eczema Company Review
The Eczema Company carries a whole range of products including bath and body care, health supplements, clothing and jewelry, books, and products for the home. Just think of them as a curator of all the best products to help you in battling the challenges of all things eczema. They even have a very useful blog with just about the cutest name ever – It’s an Itchy Little World. 🙂
The Emily Skin Soother is definitely a favorite around here. We’ve tried several creams and balms over the past year, and both my son and I agree that this is the best cream for his flare-ups. He had a really bad, stubborn flare-up this past Winter due to the cold, dry weather, and this cream was a life saver. On several occasions, he literally said, “Ahh, feels better” as I was putting it on him. I’ll also add that it’s the first time that we’ve ever come so close to finishing a cream – I have to order more soon to keep on hand! I’ve even used it on my own eczema-prone hands this season and can attest to how well it works at moisturizing and soothing the dry, itchy skin.
The Emily Skin Soother also has a matching Soothing Soap. I have to say that when Yusuf gets a flare-up, there’s pretty much no soap that I can use on his skin that won’t make him flinch in pain. So I resort to not using any soap at all and just bathing him with a wet wash cloth. I was hesitant to try this Emily soap on him and proceeded with caution. Surprisingly, he didn’t even notice I was using soap and never complained of it hurting or burning. This soap (and the rest of the Emily line of products) gets a huge thumbs up from me. 🙂
The Oatmeal Cookie Bath Soak was fun to try. Yusuf is very used to oatmeal baths, but this one had a few extra special ingredients included: calendula, chamomile, and marshmallow leaf. These gave the soak some extra soothing and healing powers, and made it smell so heavenly. It also comes with a cute muslin pouch that you can just throw into the bath so the oatmeal doesn’t get all over the tub. Of course Yusuf didn’t allow that, and he just dumped the oatmeal right into the tub so he could watch it float around. 😉
I’m so very impressed with the mission and purpose behind The Eczema Company. The products I tried are of great quality, and I can tell that they were carefully chosen to be included in their store. I’m so glad to have that magical place that I can go to now if I need anything for my son’s eczema flare-ups.
