Natural Treatment for Baby Eczema

If your little one suffers from dry skin and/or eczema, you’ll know how miserable it can be. It’s a helpless feeling to watch them distressed and scratching. The good news is that by choosing natural baby care products that nourish the skin and replenish moisture, dry skin conditions can be well managed and, in some cases, completely cleared up.

The Bubba Organics range has been shown to alleviate the symptoms of baby eczema as well as a range of other skin conditions including cradle cap, baby acne, and even teenage acne, too.

What is eczema?

Eczema (also referred to as atopic dermatitis) is a common condition that causes skin to become very dry, often resulting in red, scaly or rough patches that can become very itchy, especially at night. If these patches are scratched, they can ooze and become crusty or infected.

Frustratingly, the causes of eczema are not clear and there is no known cure, but there appears to be a genetic link which means that if you or your partner suffers, your little one may inherit the condition, too. Eczema is often also seen in people with allergies and asthma.

Baby eczema

This common skin condition affects 1 in 5 children and causes already fragile skin to become extra-sensitive. If your baby has an eczema flare-up, it can be very distressing for them – and you! Often babies and children will scratch during their sleep which makes it tricky to monitor overnight. Sleep can be disrupted, and parents find themselves stuck in a vicious cycle of recurring flare-ups. But when dealing with baby eczema, natural options are often a parent’s first choice.

How Our Natural Baby Skin Care Became A Treatment For Baby Eczema

When we created the Bubba Organics range, we were committed to making the formulations with 100% natural ingredients – no synthetics and nothing toxic or potentially irritating. Each nature-sourced ingredient needed to have proven benefits for nourishing and hydrating skin – and it had to be gentle enough to use from birth. We wanted parents to feel confident that using Bubba Organics’ premium natural baby skin care was safe for even the most fragile newborn skin.

Our naturally healing Australian Goats Milk range was created to be suitable for extra-sensitive skin, but you might be surprised to know that we did not set out to create this range specifically to assist with baby eczema. We knew it was packed with deeply nourishing skin-loving ingredients and free of known irritants, but it was a happy surprise when customers began reporting that our Wash, Moisture Lotion and Baby Bottom Cream were successfully helping their babies’ eczema when nothing else had worked. Gentle, moisture-rich ingredients are the key as similar results were experienced by customers choosing our vegan-friendly Lavender & Chamomile range.

Our Australian Goats Milk range has the following benefits:

  • Goat’s milk is high in vitamins including Vitamin A which assists in repairing damaged skin tissue
  • We use only fresh goat’s milk in our formulations making it rich with fat molecules which provide essential moisture to dry, irritated skin
  • Our range is UNSCENTED to offer even the most sensitive and reactive of skin types a skincare alternative that won’t irritate or cause an eczema flare-up
  • The entire range is boosted with Aloe vera as the base ingredient which is much better for moisturising the skin than cheap fillers like water.

Our Lavender & Chamomile range has the following benefits:

  • Lavender & Chamomile have anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties assisting to keep eczema at bay
  • Chamomile is hypoallergenic with the ability to neutralise skin irritants. It also promotes healing, making it perfect for hydrating and supporting sensitive skin
  • Essential oils are kept to a minimum to avoid irritation
  • The entire range is boosted with Aloe vera as the base ingredient which offers superior skin hydration to cheap fillers like water.

Why The Ingredients We Don’t Use Can Make All The Difference

Our 100% natural blend of premium ingredients has proven benefits for sensitive skin. But it’s also what we choose NOT to include in our natural baby skin care formulations that makes a difference to dry and eczema-prone skin. Even ingredients that are classified as ‘natural’ can irritate and/or dry out delicate skin. For this reason, you can rest assured that our baby skin care will never contain;

  • Parabens
  • PEG compounds
  • Polysorbates
  • Petrochemicals
  • Sulphates (SLS)
  • Mineral oils
  • Synthetic colours, fragrances & preservatives
  • Cheap or drying fillers like water
  • Known naturally derived irritants such as Cocamidopropyl Betaine

We know that little ones love a bubble bath, but we choose NOT to include the commonly used natural foaming agent cocamidopropyl betaine because of its links with skin irritation and contamination issues during manufacturing. Instead, coco-glucoside gives our Hair, Bath & Body Wash range a lovely, gentle bubbling action.

How To Treat Baby Eczema

Bubbas with eczema have the kind of skin that struggles to retain enough moisture. This makes using natural, non-irritating and super-hydrating bath and body products absolutely essential. And to limit further irritation, it’s useful to consider everything that may come in contact with your baby’s skin.

We recommend using our Australian Goats Milk range exclusively for at least a couple of weeks to monitor how your little one’s skin responds. Depending on the severity of the condition, you might like to try moisturising three times a day, at least in the initial stages, to restore much needed moisture to the skin. Our Baby Bottom Cream is especially wonderful for helping to soothe eczema patches. The extra-moisturising blend contains pure shea butter, calendula, Aloe vera and olive fruit oil. Combined with 100% fresh Australian goat’s milk (no powders here!), this ‘miracle cream’ will calm and soothe flare-ups – some customers report seeing a huge difference overnight.

Baby Eczema Relief Success Stories

Receiving feedback from customers who tell us our natural baby skin care is a game changer for their family, we feel so overwhelmed! What an honour it is to play a role in restoring health to precious bubs’ skin when their poor parents were at their wits end.

HERE’S WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:

“I am writing to you to share my absolute joy at your product. My beautiful 11-month-old little girl started getting eczema at around 5 months of age and it steadily got worse until it covered most of her back, shoulders and chest. We tried many different products with little to no results. We did get results while using cortisone, but the second we stopped, the eczema would be back just as bad.
That was when we stumbled across Bubba Organics. In just three days of using the Bottom Cream on her breakouts, the eczema was almost gone. We didn’t even get results like that from the cortisone.
I can’t even begin to explain how incredibly happy I am with this product. It has changed our lives and given the peace of mind we needed that we don’t have to resort to harsh chemicals on our precious little girl’s delicate skin.”
~ Nancy, mum to 11-month old

“When Chester was a few months old he had a bout of eczema and we tried many different bath products before we landed on Bubba Organics. It cleared his eczema up within days and has since kept his skin supple and soft. I spend a lot of time scouring ingredients list of bath products and when I saw that Bubba Organics contains aloe vera as its main ingredient, not water, which is drying, I was sold. We absolutely love this product.”
~ Petta Chua, Junior Fashion Editor, Vogue Australia

“I recently bought the Bubba Organics Bath Wash and Bottom Cream after reading reviews on customers who recommended it for their kids’ eczema. WOW WOW WOW, my son’s skin honestly cleared within 24hrs and we continue to use it and his skin is back to being silky smooth. We have tried all of the creams and lotions that claim to be eczema specific and no change. It’s honestly been a miracle cream.”
~ Lisa Harris, mum to Archie

“So this Bubba Organics stuff is the bomb. I’m always super reluctant to use stuff on Max but gave it a go on myself first and instantly my eczema cleared up. I then tried it on Max and now the spots on his legs are almost completely gone. I’ve never ever seen cortisone cream work that fast.”
~Natisse, mum to Max

Naturally Soothe A Variety Of Dry Skin Conditions

Our 100% natural baby skin care ranges are successfully soothing a variety of baby skin conditions along with eczema. These include cradle cap, baby acne and mild teenage acne, too.

Cradle Cap

Cradle cap is a type of dermatitis that affects young babies in the first three months of life. Caused by a build-up of naturals oils and dry skin, cradle cap looks like thick, waxy, yellow crusts on the baby's scalp and sometimes in the eyebrows. The skin can also look red – and this can indicate that there is eczema underneath the cradle cap.

Thankfully cradle cap is not itchy, painful or contagious – and it should resolve itself by three months of age. However, there are gentle ways to treat cradle cap that can help clear it up sooner.

Suggested Treatment for Cradle Cap

Range: Goats Milk or Lavender & Chamomile

Products: Hair, Bath & Body Wash and Moisture Lotion (or Belly & Baby Oil)

  1. Begin by applying Moisture Lotion (or try Kakadu Plum & Marshmallow Belly & Baby Oil) to the cradle cap affected areas before putting baby to bed for the night. This will help loosen the crusts.
  2. The following morning, gently cleanse your bub’s head with Hair, Bath & Body Wash, making sure to rinse thoroughly. Carefully pat bub’s head dry with a fluffy towel and then use a soft brush or comb to gently lift the crusts off.
  3. Repeat the process each day until the cradle cap is gone.
  4. A baby’s oil glands remain active until about 3 months of age so if cradle cap reappears, simply repeat the process.
  5. If you have any concerns about your baby’s cradle cap, see a trusted GP or paediatrician.

Customer Testimonials

TAHLIA

My little one was suffering from persistent cradle cap and dry skin on his head & face and nothing worked until I came across the Bubba Organics Belly & Baby oil. After just a few days of using the oil on his cradle cap, and using the Bubba Organics Baby Moisturiser on his face, his skin is glowing and all signs of cradle cap/dry skin have vanished. These products are absolute game changers!!

RHIANNA

I have always used bubba organics on my children, so when my newborn daughter developed cradle cap, I knew I had to try the baby oil to help. I wasn’t sure what to expect, I placed the oil on and let it soak in for around three hours, then gently combed it out, it lifted the cradle cap effortlessly and I simply washed it out with warm water. I was shocked and very happy that after one attempt her cradle cap was completely gone!

Baby Acne

Baby acne (also known as acne neonatorum) is a common skin condition seen in babies in the first few months of life. Typically appearing on a baby’s cheeks and forehead, these tiny pimples are thought to be caused by maternal hormones.

Suggested Treatment for Baby Acne

Range: Goats Milk or Lavender & Chamomile

Products: Baby Bottom Cream

  1. After bathing your baby using a gentle bath wash, apply Baby Bottom Cream to baby’s face and anywhere else the baby acne appears.
  2. Use daily to keep baby’s skin nourished and moisturised.
  3. Never attempt to pop or squeeze the pimples.
  4. If your baby’s skin is not clearing up, chat to your Maternal Health Nurse.

Customer Testimonial

KATE

My little Bub was diagnosed with baby acne but it only continued to get worse and spread over his whole head and chest. Breastmilk wasn’t working but after a few days of applying the Goats Milk baby bottom cream, the rash had started to clear up and within 10 days was completely gone. I stopped using the cream but it flared up again a few weeks later. Again I applied the cream and again it went away. I also used it on my 2 year olds face for his teething rash and it gave him some moisture back into his face after the heater drying it out. A soft lightweight cream. Highly recommend.

Teenage Acne

Teenage acne is caused by a surge in hormones during puberty which can cause the sebaceous glands to become overactive. Many of the products aimed at teenagers are designed to dry out the skin using harsh astringents. This can result in the skin producing even more oil to try and replace what has been stripped away. It can create a vicious cycle for self-conscious teens.

Suggested treatment for mild teenage acne

Range: Kakadu Plum & Marshmallow

Products: Hair, Bath & Body Wash and Belly & Baby Oil

  1. Cleanse skin each morning and before bed using the Kakadu Plum wash, gently massaging into the face with a soft face washer. No scrubbing! Rinse face with warm water.
  2. Rub a few drops of the Kakadu Plum oil between the fingertips and gently press into the skin to restore moisture. A little goes a long way.
  3. Continue this routine daily and monitor how the skin is responding.
  4. Consult a trusted health professional if the skin does not appear to be improving.

Customer Testimonial

KERRI (Bubba Organics co-founder)

My teenager’s acne was quite nasty looking, very red and all over the side of their face. They tried all the acne treatments at the chemist and nothing helped. Given the healing and soothing results seen with Bubba Organics on various skin conditions for littles and their families, I suggested trying some of the Bubba Organics products - if anything, just to give the sensitive, flared up areas some love. I suggested the Kakadu Plum & Marshmallow range using the hair, bath & body wash with a face-washer to gently cleanse and exfoliate and then the belly & baby oil for hydration. It took a little time to see the results but now the acne has really settled down and their skin looks so much healthier. The wash and oil are still part of the daily routine and although there are still occasional teenage breakouts, they are nowhere near as aggressive and don’t last anywhere near as long.
