Instant soothing relief for severe eczema

I have suffered severe eczema since birth with regular flare-ups every year and constant itching. I have been prescribed steroids by my GP and hospital dermatologists (topical and oral steroids)and antihistamines for my entire life and long-term usage of the steroids has thinned out my skin. I’ve tried practically every medicated skincare brand on the market also and I have never felt instant soothing relief until I began using the Essentials range – both hand and body. What amazed me was that even when I have an extreme flare-up with blistered seeping skin, I can still actually apply the body cream without any stinging sensation and after regular use I have seen one particular skin bump (which I had for nearly a year) disappear fully and my extra dry skin is now much softer. I do still get eczema as you can never cure it, however it is much more manageable and I have reduced my usage of steroids significantly. The hand wash and hand cream are lifesavers too as I am constantly washing or sterilising my hands and these products have managed to keep severe eczema at bay and my hands are now lovely and soft. I decant the hand cream into a smaller bottle to have in my handbag so it would be great if there were handbag sized bottles of Essentials Hand Cream too 😉 Thank you Pestle & Mortar for creating such wonder-products to help calm down my eczema!!

Gentle on eczema prone skin

Two of my girls have dry patches like eczema and and it was gentle enough not to irritate their skin any further. Its so nice to have bath and body products that you know will care for your babies gentle skin. It’s one less thing to worry about as a mother! And I love using them on myself too.

FAQs

How often should I use the Body Wash?
Use daily in the bath or shower.

Why doesn’t it foam like my other body washes?
Foaming cleansers strip the skin of natural oils leaving it dry  and tight. The Body Wash is non-foaming so that it gently cleanses the skin without drying it.

I suffer from body acne. Will this help?
The natural ingredients present in the Body Wash have anti inflammatory, antimicrobial, and natural cleansing characteristics which soothe the skin while at the same time unclogging blocked pores which cause body acne.

Can I use this on my newborn?
Yes, the Body Wash is paediatrician approved and safe to use for all ages, including newborns.

Caring For Baby Skin
Baby skin is soft and delicate. For the first few weeks after birth, at the newborn stage, experts recommend washing with plain water. As they grow,  babies are prone to skin irritations like eczema, rashes, cradle cap, and dry skin conditions. Once your baby is 4-6 weeks old, you should use gentle, hydrating soaps at bath time, and moisturising creams that are free from colours, perfumes, and alcohol. Regular care with safe and gentle products will keep your baby’s skin hydrated and comfortable. Avoid physical and chemical irritants like scratchy wool clothes, polyester, perfumed creams, body soaps, and scented talcum powder. Consistent care with paediatrician-approved skincare products is key to maintaining optimal skin health in babies and keeping irritating skin conditions at bay.
