Best Products for Eczema Prone Skin

Eczema is an inflammation of the skin, involving dry, red spots, often with flakes. With babies, it usually manifests on the cheeks and bottom. In children, eczema moves to the elbows, knees, wrists, and ankles. The natural protective lipid barrier of the skin is less present with eczema, leading to dry, sensitive skin. The spots also often itch and can be very uncomfortable for your little one.

It is important to find gentle yet effective products that will both treat the skin during flare-ups, and protect and strengthen the skin to prevent it from acting up on an everyday basis. Naïf was founded to address the lack of quality, effectiveness, and purity in baby skincare. Check out our top product recommendations to treat eczema prone skin below:
