Children with eczema, dermatitis and dry sensitive skin need special care. Exederm sensitive skin care products tackle problematic, sensitive skin by cutting out the irritating ingredients that trigger eczema flare ups and using only the mildest ingredients possible.
Contrary to what you might read online or hear from friends, eczema cannot be cured. Fortunately, with Exederm, you can treat current symptoms and prevent additional flare ups with continued use.
Step 1: Control the eczema “flare up” – Apply a small amount of exederm flare control cream to the affected area.
Step 2: Moisturize – Apply exederm intensive moisture cream at least once a day to deeply moisturize dry skin
Step 3: Gentle cleanse – Use exederm cleansing wash to gently cleanse without stripping the skin of moisture or exposing to unnecessary harsh irritants
Exederm products are also non-comedogenic (non-pore clogging) – so even your ‘big’ kids can use this line without fear of it increasing their acne. So what’s the secret to Exederm’s effectiveness?
The products are completely scent free and extremely mild. At first I worried that it would lower the cleaning effectiveness and lather. Not the case. The baby wash and shampoo lather even more than the usual store brands I buy and don’t disappoint in their cleaning like other ‘gentle’ washes I’ve bought. My toddler’s skin felt soft and clean after each bath. The flare ups he normally has on his elbows, knees and diaper area were greatly reduces and, in some areas, gone completely.
The concentrated moisturizing cream has made a huge difference in the eczema patches behind his ears. I use a small dab of the thick moisturizer behind each ear at night before bed. Because there is no strong smell, he doesn’t even notice and I don’t have to fight him to sit still while I apply it.
My favorite item in the collection is, by far, the Flare Control Cream. It is a hydrocortisone 1.0% cream, but with the absence of harsh chemicals just like the other Exederm product line. You’re probably thinking, “I can buy Hydrocortisone cream at the store for a few bucks.” Yes, you can. But, it is nothing compared to this cream. For years I’ve suffered from severe eczema and dermatitis on my hands. The itching is almost uncontrollable and my skin becomes rough and sometimes peels. I’ve used Cortisone on my hands the entire time and sometimes had to use more than one application within the same day just to make the itching tolerable. Forget getting rid of it completely. Using Cortisone that often can be unhealthy. With just ONE small application of the Exederm Flare Control I am 100% itch free ALL DAY. Then I use the moisturizer or lotion to repair the skin damage and keep me itch free for several days. I can’t tell you how much of a relief that is. If you have eczema, then you know exactly what I mean.
The only thing I’d like to see adjusted with the Exederm baby care line is the shampoo: it’s not tear-free. My toddler wiggles and bounces the entire time we’re washing. And he absolutely refuses to tilt his head back because he actually likes the water being poured over his face. So I’ve decided to use the Exederm once per week for maintenance and another tear-free product the rest of the week. But even with only one use per week – his chronic cradle cap is virtually gone. No other product could manage it.
Finally! A sensitive skin product that does more than protect – it also treats. I’m an Exederm mom!
