Why I say ‘no’ to bath wash and creams advised for eczema by doctors

We have been advises by doctors & allergy specialists to use a particular bath wash & moisturiser for Lakyn’s eczema.

But as I do, I research everything. Ingredients & the effects they cause. I then decide if i want to use the product or not.

Now I am not about naming and shaming so wont put the names of the products. I would rather bring awareness and share what I have found.

So these are just a few of the ingredients and the effects they may have and this is where it all started, the reason I question everything I’m told, the reason I will research and decide for myself if I will use a product. And the reason I have lost trust in the people we are supposed to trust.


-may irritate sensitive skin

-not assessed for safety in cosmetics

aminomethyl propanol

-classified as an irritant,

-wildlife and environmental toxicity


– contact dermatitis,

-interferes with gene expression,

-skin irritation,

-suspected endocrine disruption symptoms,

-skin ailments, eczema, dermatitis, itching, hives, rash etc.


-contacts dermatitis,

-suspected endocrine disruption,

-suspected skin or sense organ toxicity symptoms,

-skin ailments, eczema, dermatitis, itching, hives, rash.

Tell me why they  would recommend this to anyone with eczema?? It makes me angry and I sure know I will not use this in my child’s bath, or on his skin. I will never buy this product and will make people aware of what I have found along the way.

None of the ingredients are natural. NONE!!!

This was the turning point for me and the start of a very long journey to find or make a bath wash and cream the was all natural that worked for us.

If your in Australia find what we use for bath time here. What we use for skin creams, lotions & balms here.
