Featured Ingredient: Africal Palm Oil

Why Did We Choose This Ingredient?

As we mentioned before, choosing the ingredients in our Honey Eczema Soap was done in a careful manner. After all, our main goal was to create something suitable for Eczema prone skin, but that would also benefit any skin type. This meant avoiding fragrances and chemicals. It then came down to, ‘What Specific Oils Does Our Skin Like’?

African Palm Oil has been used for many years for its health benefits. However, this ingredient is also beneficial to our skin. Many skincare products include this ingredient for the primary reason that it delivers a soft, glossy appearance of the skin without being greasy. It’s also great for itchy skin.

Palm Oil & Eczema

If you have Eczema then you know how your skin can be very unhappy at times, for any length of time. Palm oil offers the nourishment our skin craves when Eczema flares, helping to seal in moisture and prevent more dryness. This in turn will help to sooothe itching and any redness.

When you have this type of atopic dermatitis, it’s important to avoid putting anything on your skin that contains chemicals. These will only worsen your symptoms and likely result in pain from all the itching you’ll do afterwards…!

Our Honey & Oatmeal soap contains this particular palm oil because it makes the best fatty acid profile for our moisturizing bar soap. There’s a high chance that a previous product you have used for your Eczema has this listed as an ingredient.
