Eczema is something I’m no stranger to. With severely sensitive skin stemming back from my childhood there was one thing I had hoped and prayed A would not inherit – and unfortunately she didn’t escape this one. Sensitive skin is a never ending battle for many people. From perfumes and dyes, additives and fillers, we can react to even the smallest thing in anything that touches our skin. For many.. it can cause extreme reactions that feel like a never ending cycle.
A was diagnosed with Eczema very early on when her diaper rashes would go from zero to extremely flared up overnight. She would have dry and scaly patches around her tush, on her legs and most noticeably would be spots on her face that would come and go, often times irritating her enough that she would scratch them and make them worse. We have tried just about every cream under the sun to control them, and still find it a challenge.
Fact is nearly 6 million Canadian’s (that’s one in five!) will suffer from atopic dermatitis (eczema) during their lifetime along with one baby out of two. That’s a lot of people struggling with sensitive inflamed skin, irritation and a constant struggle to find products that are safe for their skin and their children’s.
When I was approached to try a new product line by Montreal-based Attitude Living that boasts being approved by the National Eczema Association and receiving their Seal of Acceptance, I was eager to try it! Often times eczema remedies contain a lot of ingredients I would rather not be piling onto my daughter’s skin (including steroids!) and while they are treating the flare up at the time, avoidance of irritants that cause the flares are the best preventative measure. Attitude Living sold me right away with this acceptance seal, but even more so when I read more into the company.
My bathroom cabinet looks like a little bit of a pharmacy, I have a slew of kids medicine for A from inhalers, nose sprays, chest rubs, the works. I have medication for the adults, I have shampoo and soap for A and separate for us. To be honest, I’m tired of needing to just buy stuff for her because our products are too harsh. I love that Attitude Living not only carries a line for baby but also a vast line for the entire family. Gone are the days of needing separate soaps, shampoos or body washes. The entire family can safely use and appreciate the Solution for Sensitive Skin line without worry.
The new Solution for Sensitive Skin line includes 31 products that are enriched with colloidal oatmeal, are fragrance-free, hypoallergenic and clinically tested by dermatologists to be safe for the most sensitive skin in the family. They are also EWG verified which means they meet the standard in the field of health and well-being. You can feel good knowing that the ingredients within the products post a minimal risk to yours and your families health.
We’ve been testing out a few of the products over the past month and I have to say – I have some new favourites. The household products have quickly become a staple on my shopping list, from the laundry soap that is completely irritant free to the dish soap that doesn’t leave my hands red and cracked. A is enjoying the natural deep repair cream on her arms and loves that it smells “clean” without any yucky overbearing smells. We definitely love that each product is geared towards specific needs, with the repair creams containing 3% colloidal oatmeal they are perfect for inflamed, itchy and irritated skin.
