B Organic Soothing Balm

I recently wrote a post about my boys having Eczema and what products we use.  I have to admit that we were introduced to B Organic via twitter and that they asent us a jar of their organis soothing balm (£13) to try.

We like: It works!  I guess that is high priase in itself.  it really made a masive different to Maxi’s ezema which is in his creases and in small patches over his body.  The balm is a thick substance so it creates a protective fim over the skin, which means it is great as a barrier cream for when he is swimming, which can cause flare ups. I love that the products are Paraben-free, Ethoxylate-free, Propylene Glycol-free, Silicone-free, DEA-free and artificial colour-free.

We wernt keen: As it is quite thick it means that it isn’t suitable for whole body application, however, it is a fantastic product, which is now firmly part of our routine. At £13 it is pretty expensive and unlike some of the other products we use this can not be got via a prescription (come on NHS) , but you can not put a price on your child’s health and well being.

Overall: It is heartbreaking when your child suffers from eczema.  When you see them ripping at their skin to try and get some relief, so I was delighted to find something which makes such a difference to Maxi’s routine.  It we can keep his skin in better condition we are much less likely to have flare ups which need treating with steroid based products.
