Aveeno Alternative Eczema Care

Some Aveeno Products Contain Shea Butter, a Tree Nut Ingredient

Aveeno Alternative Eczema Hydrating Creams

Finding alternatives to Aveeno eczema care is getting harder every day. A lot of common skin care creams contain common allergens or animal products. They also contain chemicals that individuals with eczema need to avoid. EWG.org will help you identify ingredients to avoid. But, in general, you need to avoid putting any creams containing common allergens onto damaged skin.

Another popular eczema cream, SkinFix, has shea and almond. Nut based ingredients.

Neutrogena contains parabens and methyl parabens, known estrogen mimics. Many believe very low concentrations cannot do any harm. However, in eczema, our skin's barrier function is broken. Even low concentrations may have profound effects on hormones. For example, breast cancer cells show activation with low-level paraben in the presence of epidermal growth factor.

Just 3+ has the smallest allergen footprint of any skin care product. This cream contains only 3 plants and a collagen building block, glycine.

Just 3+ (without tree nuts) contains safflower, rice, and olive. Simple and nurturing. But those sensitive to safflower, rice, or olive should avoid this product. These three oils provide a simple balance of essential linoleates and omega-3s.

A quick word about our creams and the microbiome:

Before applying creams to the skin, you need to cleanse skin thoroughly. This will eliminate any impact of skin-associated bacteria. Like our gut microbiome, we have thousands of bacteria on our body making up our skin microbiome. Therefore, if the microbiome is out of balance, itching and inflammation can develop. This imbalance can be the result of growing bacteria.  If you plan on using a nutrient-packed cream we recommend cleansing before applying. Nutrient dense creams will feed the microbiome and can cause itching and even redness. In addition to cleansing, we further suggest using Magicalm before applying creams to help the skin re-balance.
