No thanks, itchy skin. These two are winners for eczema treatment for kids
If there’s anything we dread when it starts to cool off, it’s our kiddos not feeling well. Obviously, we’re keeping a close eye on cold, flu, and Covid, but if you’ve got little ones with eczema, you know that goes on the list, too. Dry air, cold, and harsh wind create eczema’s favorite time to rear its red, itchy head. And on sensitive little kid skin, that also means a miserable time for the whole family. Thankfully, we landed on Happy Little Bodies (from the people at Flexitol—you probably know their hand creams, lip balms, and sensitive skin body washes).
The number of products for eczema treatment for kids out there is just astronomical. If you have little ones with eczema, you know how it goes. Since Flexitol has been around for over 20 years, it makes sense that they’d nail kids’ skincare, too. Their two eczema products are designed to work together and used as part of their normal bath time routine, so you’re treating and preventing at the same time. No extra steps. (Who has the time, anyway?)
Happy Little Bodies Body Wash & Shampoo
This gentle, tear-free and soap-free 2-in-1 body wash and shampoo is a non-irritating alternative to harsh traditional soaps and shampoos, and it won’t strip sensitive skin of its essential oils. It's pH-balanced for kids and babies and formulated with colloidal oatmeal (the good stuff) to gently soothe dry, itchy skin. For eczema-prone skin, use along with the Happy Little Bodies Eczema Relief Cream to keep their skin healthy and manage flare-ups. Plus, it has none of the yucky stuff: petro-chemicals, parabens, phthalates, SLS, cortisone. or artificial fragrances.
Happy Little Bodies Eczema Relief Cream

It's especially designed for little ones and can be used on their faces and bodies. Use it after their baths and as needed!
