This year alone, 25% of babies will develop eczema in their first six months, compared to 3% just two generations ago. So what’s going on? Is there something in the water? The short answer is yes. And the uncomfortable truth is, we’re often the ones putting it there. For example, many baby skincare products contain harsh and unnecessary chemicals, inparticular MI (preservatives), and sulfates (foamers) in shampoos, bubble baths and wipes. These can strip the skin of its natural oils, leading to problems such as eczema. It’s not just babies who are suffering, many women and men have had skin reactions to facial skincare, which have left skin red and sensitive.
