When your skin is sore and inflamed, using eczema skin care products free from harsh chemicals is very important.
Our range of products is free from parabens, sodium laureth and lauryl sulphate, ethyl alcohol and synthetic colours and fragrances. These products are based around the goodness of natural ingredients that nourish and soothe the skin. The mild toiletries in this section are specifically designed for people with eczema or associated dry skin conditions, though we always recommend you patch test before use. We also offer a range of Fragrance Free Toiletries for those sensitive to synthetic perfumes.

Eczematous skin is vulnerable to infections, due to the weakened skin barrier. Therefore, if you have eczema, it’s important to keep your skin clean and free from bacteria without overly drying it out. Many soaps (liquid or solid) and cleansing foams available on the high street can strip skin of its natural oils, leading to further skin tightness and irritation. Hands in particular tend to suffer from this, as these are washed very frequently.
Shower gels and bubble baths can be irritating and drying on skin, too. An emollient bath or bath oil intended especially for eczema-prone skin is a better option than a foamy bubble bath. You may also want to dechlorinate your bathing water, as chlorine can be abrasive to the skin.
The mild and gentle cleansers in this section have been carefully formulated to protect and nourish dry, irritated skin.
Emollients are key to keeping skin moist, preventing cracking and itching. These can come in the form of lotions, ointments or creams.
How often you need to apply your emollient depends on the severity of your eczema. Sometimes, emollients alone can keep mild eczema in check. More severe eczema requires wholistic treatment – speak to your GP if you are worried about your skin condition.
Maintain a thorough moisturising regime even after your eczema has healed. This can help to prevent further flare-ups.
"Hope's Relief Cream has been brilliant in relieving my eczema symptoms. My hands were such a mess that I was embarrassed and they were also very uncomfortably itchy. I have purchased many lotions and creams and your product is the only thing that has really worked for me. It really is pretty amazing. Thank you so much."
We've recommended these toiletries for people with eczema due to their gentle ingredients and based on good feedback. As eczema is a very individual condition and triggers vary widely, we can't guarantee that these items will be suitable for everyone with eczema and associated skin conditions. Always patch test new products before use.
