My kids were blessed with my sensitive skin (poor things). About a year ago my eldest son started scratching his face constantly to the point that it was bleeding and I finally figured out it was the Johnson’s bubble bath I was using was giving him eczema. A trip to the pediatrician confirmed that yes indeed the “supposedly pediatrician recommended” Johnson’s is not that great for sensitive baby skin in fact it can be down right harsh as we found out the hard way. So she recommended something gentler like Aveeno baby products so I switched. Then came the info that Aveeno products as well as a lot of Johnson Products (Aveeno is owned by Johnson) have cancer-causing chemicals in them.

So I went on the hunt for something safer that was for sensitive skin and one day I happened upon Exederm in the baby aisle at Stop & Shop. It had the National Eczema Association seal of approval, boasted that it contained NO HARSH chemicals and had an adorable baby on the packaging. I decided to take it home and try it out. It worked like a charm and cleared my son’s eczema up in two days!!!
Children with Eczema require sensitive skin care that does not have harsh irritants in them. Exederm’s line of baby cream, baby shampoo, baby bath wash, and baby lotion and baby oil boasts that they contain:
-NO Propylene Glycol
-NO colors or dyes
-NO SLS- Sodium Laureth Sulfate
-NO CAPB- Cocamidopropyl Betaine

Ever since I have changed to Exederm about a year ago my son has NOT HAD ANY flare ups. I even use the products on myself. They have an adults line, but I just use the same as the kids since I already have it in the house. I usually buy mine a Stop & Shop- they have the cheapest price. Bottle of the products are usually $9 and change, every so often they go on sale for $7 and change and I try to stock up then. You can check their website for stores that carry them www.exederm.com
