Like many children, my little boy suffers from eczema not badly but enough that we can only use prescription products on his skin. This is fairly limiting when it comes to bath time. We all know kids love bubbles and what can be more fun in their little world, than bubbles in the bath? Bonus hey?
If we try normal bubble bath from a supermarket, yes we have fun in the bath, but Damien then suffers with his skin. It irritates it beyond belief, he wakes up at night scratching and is then left with scabs where he has scratched so much.
So it was with hesitation that we tried a bath and shower gel from Organic Children. We used the Lavender fragranced one, and I was tempted to kick the kids out and get in myself. Obviously I didn't, but I did use it in my bath when they were tucked up in bed. The smell was delicious, delicate and not over powering.
We have been using the product for over two weeks and we have had no problems with skin irritation at all. How fantastic is that? This natural body wash is made without SLS/SLES, Parabens, phthalates and artificial fragrances and is therefore suitable for babies and children who are prone to eczema.
What's more is that a little goes a long way. The company state on its website: "This bottle contains enough for approximately 160 baths." Well, I'm not sure we have had that many yet, but we are still going strong with our bottle.
There is a whole range of fantastic skin products suitable for babies, children and adults at http://m.greenpeople.co.uk/organic-baby-bath-products.aspx
We received the Lavender Bath and Shower Gel from Green People. No money was exchanged for this post.
