Shea Moisture Baby Collection Eczema Tips and Video Review

I love natural bath and body care products for sensitive skin. When it comes to babies, natural skin care brands are often a go to resource, but I think it’s very important to KEEP using natural skin care options on our growing children and ourselves. We took the Shea Moisture Baby collection for a test run and I loved it. Options for skincare products are great and just because your children are not babies anymore, doesn’t mean they don’t still have sensitive growing skin!

Until this recent product review,  I had never heard of Shea Moisture Baby, but this brand has a strong heritage.  Created in 1912, this natural skin care brand offers shampoo, body wash, soaps, and lotions and is known to be eco-friendly and use cruelty-free business practices. Bonus: Shea Moisture baby smells BEYOND divine. The lotion and total body wash we sampled both include both Frankincense and Myrrh!!!!

For Moms dealing with children or babies with eczema, I highly recommend you add Shea Moisture Baby Collection to your arsenal of skincare products. The Shea Moisture Baby collection uses moisturizing and soothing itchy, irritated skin and does so by using organic shea butter, chamomile and argan oil.

 Eczema Tips for Moms

Thanks to the team at Shea Moisture Baby Collection for these awesome tips on dealing with eczema. My kids have both had some major bouts with eczema. As a baby and toddler, my son Kyle had a TON of eczema. We found it mostly was triggered by  his egg allergy and certain bath products that had higher amounts of chemicals in them. When we started using only natural bath products, his symptoms basically disappeared!
I pulled a few of my favorite tips the team shared with me that resonated most based on my experience with Kenzie and Kyle.
Find out what’s causing the itchy. Although eczema can be inherited, it may also be triggered by
external irritants such as detergent, fragrance and food. Symptoms may be caused by eggs, wheat, milk,
fish and nuts. So, do some mom sleuthing and notice exactly when symptoms flare.
It worked at Woodstock. Think old-school, and use cloth wipes with water, as many commercial wet
wipes contain synthetic ingredients (such as artificial fragrance) that may trigger your child’s eczema.
When you need to use a wet wipe, rinse it with water before wiping your baby.
Rub-a-dub au naturel. Sulfates are detergent-grade surfactants that make body washes, soaps and
shampoos lather. They can be drying and may worsen symptoms of eczema. Opt for a sulfate-free soap
or wash, such as SheaMoisture Raw Shea, Chamomile & Argan Oil Baby Wash & Shampoo, and use with
a bamboo or 100% cotton wash cloth. Bathe the kids in cooler water, instead of hot, which can also dry
out skin and cause eczema symptoms to flare.
Oil it up, baby. Add a couple of drops of chamomile oil to your children’s bath water, which helps to
soften and soothe skin irritation. Then lock in moisture with SheaMoisture Raw Shea, Chamomile &
Argan Head-to-Toe Baby Lotion. It doesn’t contain parabens, phthalates, petrolatum or other synthetic
ingredients, so it’s gentle and hydrating for delicate skin.
