BabyLove here! I am always in the search of a product that claims will help my son William’s eczema. I don’t necessarily need a product to miraculously relieve his discomfort, but I am always trying to find a product that doesn’t irritate his super sensitive skin. There are so many products out there that claim to be gentle, and take it from me, a lot of them are not. The minute William steps out of the shower, I can see whether or not the product is a keeper or a “giveaway.” That’s why when I post these products up on this blog, you should believe me if I say that they work.
I love to nose around Etsy. I don’t know if you remember the Chubby Cherubs honey milk drops that we found on there, but every single reviewer LOVED them. It brings me great personal satisfaction when a little company grabs the attention of our subscribers, and a little known product becomes slightly more popular. Etsy is a breeding ground for designers of homemade EVERYTHING. You can always find the coolest, most original things.
On one of my “tours” through Etsy, I stumbled across a little company named Ebelegy. Lynne, the owner makes handmade lotions and shampoos that are sensitive enough for kids with skin conditions. Her daughter Elise suffered from eczema as an infant, and it wasn’t until she took matters into her own hands, did she find a solution. All of her shampoos and lotions contain No Parabens, No Phthalates, No Artificial Fragrances,
No Artificial Colors, No Synthetic Preservatives, No Sulfates, No Propylene Glycol
No Petrochemicals, No Alcohol, No Petroleum, and No Talc.
I’m always a little skeptical when I get these products because the last thing I want to do is cause William any discomfort, but I was super excited to get my hands on and distribute this shampoo. The shampoo bottle is pretty large, 16 ounces, and isn’t super fancy or frilly. It smells really minty to me, and I think it smells really clean. I, once again, will say that it smells a little earthy and herbally, so if that’s not your thing, then you may not go crazy over this. The shampoo soaps up nicely, not too little or too many suds, and washes out in a cinch. I received this bottle in February, and have only used half of it. I’m proud to report that William’s skin did not react, even the slightest, to this product. It’s a good, safe shampoo for anyone, child or adult, who unfortunately has to live with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis. Usually when a product doesn’t agree with him, the spots on his body that his eczema is most prevalent (crease of arms, behind knees, armpits) are red, inflamed, and raw. It was exactly the opposite with Ebelegy. Even the shampoo combination seemed to be super calming on his skin.
For anyone who suffers from a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis, and is on the never ending hunt to find a shampoo or lotion that really works, hunt to more. Check out Ebelegy’s store front on Etsy, and if you try the lotion, please let me know how it works!
Who else has a little one with eczema?
