Eczema and Shea Butter - CBD Skincare

Eczema is a common skin condition; reportedly up to 15 million people in the UK were living with the condition in 2017. Those with it will suffer from a varying level of discomfort. This range in severity may even change throughout the year. Thus, most people find they experience periods where the condition worsens/ improves. Usually appearing as inflamed, itchy, cracked, and rough patches on the skin. Often leading to open wounds and scratching which causes a risk of infection. 

There are various causes for eczema including triggers from the environment, food and unfortunately for some the conditions is passed down through genetics. The severity and types of eczema vary from person to person. Including a difference in appearance depending on your skin colour; for example, it can be harder to see on people of colour. 

Some people are fortunate in that the condition can go away over time, but others experience eczema as a lifelong condition. Without a cure it’s important to take steps to minimise the symptoms and discomfort. Although doctors can prescribe medication, home care can be just as valuable. For instance, ensuring your soap is designed for eczema prone skin. This will aid in cleansing and moisturising your skin in the correct way; minimising the effect of triggers and repairing your skin when the condition is heightened. 

Siempre Viva's Cleansing Eczema Repair Soap is gentle and natural for kindness towards your skin. Designed for daily use, the soap will soothe and moisturise using naturally derived plant extracts. All ingredients have been carefully picked to help repair the damage that eczema can cause. 

Shea Butter 

One of the ingredients found in our Cleansing Eczema Repair Soap is Shea Butter. The natural ingredient is proven to have several medical benefits, especially for drying skin conditions such as eczema. 

Those of us with eczema tend to be wary of new ingredients/ products as it may trigger our skin. However, it’s rare for Shea Butter to cause an allergic reaction.  

Applying Shea Butter to your skin will provide it with a protective layer: preventing water loss and increasing moisture. This prevention will put a stop to cracking or splitting skin and consequently infection can then be avoided. More benefits for the skin include antioxidants, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging effects to both soothe and improve the skin’s appearance. The vitamins found in Shea Butter promote circulation as well as containing the nutrients necessary for skin to regenerate collagen - a vital protein. Furthermore, the ingredient will absorb rapidly into the skin proving to be a quick relief from flare-ups. 

With the right care, even those of us suffering with eczema conditions can have glowing and healthy-looking skin.
