    Default Natural everyday moisturizer for mild eczema?

    Can anyone reccomend an everyday moisturizer for my DS who has mild eczema? We are currently using QV cream but would prefer to move to a petro chemical free cream. We've tried moogoo but it was useless.

    TIA

    I use a great product called Burt's Bees on my DS. I think they are all natural... Its the only product my DS does not react to...

    We tried a range of different products with DS and have stuck with Carolines Cream, works for us. My dad is now also using it to help manage his Psoriasis. Check out the link for details of ingredients and where to buy.

    I used coconut oil on myself and my son. Available from health food shops . It's made a huuuge difference to his eczema and general dry skin

    We used to use Vegesorb, it was great and we used it for years, but it not thick enough once dS started getting really really dry skin/eczema. We use Moogoo now.

    I saw Caroline's cream in the chemist last time and almost bought some, good to hear it works for you PP.

    Coconut oil. We've tried just about everything else and moogoo too, but finally tried coconut oil and it's the best and all natural.

    hi sorry to add to this thread with my own question. I'm dealing with eczema around my baby's eye area... are there any suggestions on what to use in this extra delicate area?
