Eczema is a disease from which suffer 9 to 30 percent of the population and it appears as a consequence of atopic dermatitis and contact dermatitis. Atopic dermatitis is hereditary, but also can be caused by mites, cold and high humidity in the air. Contact dermatitis occurs due to allergic reactions to specific products, creams or laundry detergent. Eczema usually begins as a moist wound with blisters.
Eczema can be caused by the metals from jewelry, clothes and hair dyes colors, fragrances in detergents and care preparations. All these result in the most common eczema on hands and feet.
If skin eczema appears , it is important to monitor carefully the products you already use, and if possible stop using them for two weeks to see whether they are the reason for skin eczema, or not. It is recommended to use products with hypoallergenic formulas, mild creams and cosmetics rich in natural fatty acids that improve skin barrier function and prevent water evaporation.

How does this work?
Shea (Shea) Butter is a fat that is obtained from Shea tree nuts in Africa. With incredibly moisturizing and healing properties, especially helps people with dry skin and eczema. A great advantage of Shea butter is its security. Even in people with very sensitive atopic skin almost never has negative side effects, and is safe for use in very young babies. When used in its pure form, is most often applied on wet skin after showering in order to maximize its beneficial effect and in that way keeping the skin moisturized. If this plant didn’t exist, the cosmetics industry would be deprived of an important ingredient. If this was tested in the severe African climate over the centuries, then it means something.
Coconut oil contains a lot of good fats, hydrates the skin and is rich in vitamin E. It penetrates quickly in the skin (more quickly than viscous oils as borage oil, olive oil or sunflower oil, and even almond oil). Like cocoa butter, it protects the skin from drying out, but does not create a film on the skin.
Honey nourishes and moisturizes the skin and has anti-bacterial properties.
Lavender essential oil
The oil helps in preventing infections that often occur due to scratching the skin affected by eczema.
These perfect natural ingredients within this miraculous cream with its synergetic properties will recover the affected skin by eczema and revitalize the dry skin.
