Recipe for soap for ezcema
(Sumner, IA USA)
Would like a recipe that would help soothe granddaughter's ezcema and rash she gets when she comes to Gma' house.
We live in the country, she loves coming here and being outside, but breaks out terrible from the animals and pollens.Answer:
Soap unfortunately won't soothe her rash but you should definitely use one that will not further irritate her sensitive skin.
I would suggest something that is low in coconut and palm oil and high in olive oil. Avoid all colorants and fragrance/essential oils as well.
I've not tried the following recipe but it is very similar to my olive oil bar and should work quite well.
Coconut oil 20%
Shea butter 20%
Olive oil 50%
Rice bran oil 10%
To soothe her skin, I've heard that straight shea butter is great for eczema. Try the whipped shea butter recipe
but omit the scents and color.
