Eczema is a term for several different types of skin ailments. Often identified by red, swollen and itchy skin. Causes for eczema include other diseases, irritating substances, allergies and your genetic makeup. Eczema is not contagious.
Eczema is an allergic condition that makes your skin dry and itchy. You can prevent some types of eczema by avoiding irritants, stress and the things you are allergic to.
Most commercial soaps available today contain harsh ingredients. The chemical additives in them can lead to rashes, allergic reactions, and to eczema in some cases. They also rob our skin of its natural oils, making it dry and prone to irritation.
With pure natural soap, you will enrich your skin, keep it soft, smooth and you also seal in its natural moisture to prevent dryness and irritation. This is because we do not use any harmful chemical additives in our soaps.
Strong perfume is also an irritant to sensitive skin. We offer unscented bars enriched with cold cream for this very reason. Petals and Herbs provide you with a natural solution for healthy glowing skin.
Try switching from shampoo to natural soaps to prevent an itchy scalp. Petals and Herbs clean cleanser hair but do not strip your scalp of its natural oils.
Soap for sensitive skin
People with sensitive skin should be careful about using soap as a cleanser since most soaps are created to remove excess oil (some of this oil is necessary for the face) from the skin. Some soap contains ingredients which may be allergic to a person with sensitive skin. Petals and Herbs makes soaps that are safe for people with sensitive skin. For this purpose, we also make natural cleansing and moisturizing soaps that contain no additives such as perfume or herbs to prevent allergic reactions.
Therapeutic herbs and plants, such as chamomile and lavender are normally safe on sensitive skin. Although these are suitable for most skin types, it is possible to have adverse reactions to these herbs as well.
