Eczema is also known as Atopic Dermatitis. It can be quite mild or quite aggressive and pretty severe. As a dermatologist, I know the effect that eczema can have on any individual. And so, the first step should really be for you to see a board-certified dermatologist. There are many factors that can lead to eczema. One critical cause is what we call the skin barrier defect. This is when the glue between skin cells does not function properly leading to gaps. Through these gaps allergens from the outside world or irritants can leak and cause damage, which leads to inflammation. This inflammation leads to itching. This is the quintessential symptom of eczema. Addressing the skin barrier defect is a critical component to helping individuals with eczema, and that is why a tailored skin moisturizer, therapeutic plan is critically important.
We developed the Skintensive body-butter to address the skin-barrier defect. The Skintensive body butter includes Ceramides, Sea buckthorn Berry and Omega fatty acids. The combination of Ceramides, Sea buckthorn Berry, and omega fatty acids addresses both the gaps in the skin barrier in addition to reversing or fighting the inflammation caused by allergens.
