Here at Liberate Your Skin we understand it's hard to find a moisturiser that works well.
Moisturisers are an important part of the management of dermatitis and eczema and can play an important part in keeping the skin healthy.
Many people try “natural treatments” which may or may not be effective.
A study just published in Paediatric Dermatology shows that coconut and sunflower seed oils are better moisturisers than olive oil, which can actually increase skin dryness.
We of course know this at Liberate Your Skin and that is why you will discover that one of our KEY ingredients is 100% Organic Coconut Oil.
From the “Paediatric Dermatology” journal:
Use of “natural” oils for moisturising: Review of olive, coconut, and sunflower seed oil
Despite the availability of effective medications for the management of atopic dermatitis and xerosis, patients may use nonconventional therapies such as topical oils. Patients choose these treatments because of the perceived lower risk of natural products and the fear of potential adverse effects of topical steroids. We review the use of topical olive, coconut, and sunflower seed oil in the treatment of atopic dermatitis and xerosis with a focus on children.
Currently available evidence suggests that olive oil may exacerbate xerosis and atopic dermatitis. Further studies are needed to make definitive recommendations regarding the use of other natural oils.
