Eczema is an umbrella term for several different types of skin conditions that feature redness, itching, swelling and dryness. The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis (AD), often referred to as “atopic eczema” this is what my husband has. This type of eczema usually appears in early childhood. Other types include contact dermatitis (caused by contact with irritants such as soaps or detergents), seborrheic dermatitis (basically “dandruff”) and dyshidrotic eczema (known as “pompholyx” where you get itchy blisters on your hands and feet).
In order to determine which one you have ask your GP to recommend a friendly dermatologist to accurately diagnose which eczema you have as it is possible to have more than one type of eczema on your body at the same time. An accurate diagnosis is important because each type requires its own treatment plan.
When combined together, CBD, borage oil and sunflower oil helps to provide powerful relief from redness, itching and dryness. The anti-inflammatory properties of CBD are complemented by the GLA in borage oil while the Vitamin E in sunflower oil helps lock moisture into the skin. This combination not only reduces symptoms but also helps prevent future flare-ups by protecting against environmental damage and regulating sebum production. By using these three ingredients together, you may be able to get effective relief from your eczema symptoms without resorting to harsh medications or creams.
These three all-natural ingredients are known for their healing properties and when combined create a powerful blend that work together to synergistically help manage Eczema symptoms.
CBD is a cannabinoid found in hemp plants that has been found to have many benefits. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce redness and itching associated with eczema flare-ups. It also helps to regulate the production of sebum, which is an oily substance produced by the skin that can make eczema worse if it becomes too excessive.
Borage oil is derived from the seeds of the borage plant, which is also known as starflower. This oil contains gamma linolenic acid (GLA), an Omega-6 fatty acid that helps to reduce inflammation and dryness associated with eczema. Sunflower oil is rich in Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps protect the skin from damage caused by exposure to UV rays and environmental pollutants. Vitamin E also helps keep the skin moisturised and can be used as an effective treatment for dry skin conditions such as eczema.
