How These Organic Oils Can Heal Your Baby’s Eczema

Baby eczema is a widespread problem that’s growing each year. According to the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Disease, nearly 20 percent of babies and young children have eczema. That’s at least 1 out of every 5 babies you know!

There are many types of eczema, but they’re all characterized by signs of dry, itchy, red, and inflamed skin. For babies, it typically starts on their face and cheeks but can appear anywhere on their little bodies.

There are many reasons why your baby gets eczema, so the healing strategies may not be that obvious. No matter what the cause, one thing is certain: your baby is having an adverse reaction to something, be it food, chemicals, microbes, etc.

The last thing you want to do is overload your baby’s body with more things that could aggravate and upset their system.

That is why a pure, simple organic strategy is your best bet.

Since it only takes 26 seconds for anything on your baby’s skin to absorb into their system, it’s a good thing to pay attention to the oils, creams & ointments you use on them. Choosing an eczema ointment that won’t add to their distress is essential. That’s why we use organic oils that closely resemble the oils already on their skin. And here’s how they help relieve eczema outbreaks.

The Purpose Of The Oils (Sweat) On Your Baby’s Skin

The oils on your baby’s skin are called sebum or sweat. Although they can be a nuisance for an adult and especially a young teen, there is a purpose for them. They help protect your baby’s skin from breaking out with bacterial infections. The flora on their skin is similar to gut flora in that it must stay balanced to prevent skin eruptions from breaking out. There should be a balance of both good and bad bacteria on their skin. Keeping the bad guys at bay is crucial for healthy, glowing skin.

Your baby’s body does this by releasing oils through their pores. These oils not only help cool them down when they get overheated but also keep their skin flora balanced. The good bacteria on their skin will break down the oils into fatty acids and glycerol. The glycerol feeds the good bacteria, and the fatty acids help kill off the harmful bacteria preventing them from taking over and causing eruptions like eczema.

The Organic Oils In Maty’s Products

The organic oils in Maty’s Organic Baby Eczema Ointment closely resemble the natural oils on your baby’s skin. They act in the same way as their sebum or sweat to help feed good bacteria and kill off harmful bacteria. Our oils are not synthetic, and won’t clog pores. We’ve received countless testimonials from customers letting us know our products helped them with dry skin and eczema.

Here’s a list of the oils we use in our organic baby eczema ointment and why:

Organic Coconut Oil:  This healthy fat is full of medium chain triglycerides and is one of nature’s most abundant source of lauric acid, which makes it antibacterial, antimicrobial, and anti-fungal.

Organic Olive Oil: Although it may have a place on your kitchen counter, this “liquid gold” has been shown to have incredible benefits for your skin. It contains three significant antioxidants: vitamin E, phytosterols, and polyphenols; these ingredients help to neutralize free radicals and are anti-inflammatory. It won’t clog pores and penetrates deeply into the skin.

Organic Jojoba Oil: There are so many benefits of this oil! It has very similar properties to our sebum (the oils on your skin), so it’s perfect for moisturizing and has even been shown to help eczema. Jojoba oil is non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t clog pores), fights harmful bacteria, and can help to heal wounds faster.

Organic Castor Oil: A healthy oil comprised of 90% ricinoleic acid, which is a rare fatty acid that helps to moisturize and condition the skin.

In addition to the organic oils above that closely resemble the oils on your baby’s skin, Maty’s Organic Baby Eczema Ointment also contains these healing oils to help treat and relieve eczema.

Organic Calendula Oil: This oil has anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe sore, itchy, inflamed skin conditions.

Organic Lavender, Bergamot, Dill Weed, Chamomile Essential Oils: These organic essential oils have been carefully chosen to help heal dry, itchy, inflamed skin associated with eczema.  They are gentle and safe for babies delicate skin.
