Homemade Goats Milk Soap for Eczema

The natural fats and oils in the goats milk soap are a natural humectant which strengthens your skin barrier and seals moisture in. Skin that’s well-hydrated may be more resistant to eczema flareups.

What is Eczema?

Eczema is an inflammatory, chronic, noncontagious disease of the skin caused by allergy and hypersensitivity. The term is loosely used to include many skin conditions more properly included under dermatitis. Eczema is characterized by a number of cutaneous lesions, such as macules, papules, pustules, vesicles, scales, and crusts.

There is no known cure for eczema, but new treatments are helping people to manage, and even prevent flares, better than ever before. Treatment is most effective when people with eczema work closely with a physician, preferably a dermatologist, who will customize a treatment approach based on the person’s age, symptoms, and overall health. With the right treatment, most flares can be brought under control in less than three weeks.

Antibiotics can be prescribed by a doctor to treat secondary infections associated with eczema. Medications used to fight infection can come in ointment or pill form and are taken for a set period of time.

Sedating antihistamines, which are best to take at bedtime, can help ease severe itching associated with eczema, and help restless sleepers and “scratchers” to sleep. The sedating antihistamines are more effective at relieving itching than the newer, non-sedating antihistamines, but these drugs cause drowsiness, and can affect an adult’s ability to work and think, and childrens’ ability to learn if taken during the day.

Keeping the skin happy and healthy is the first rule of good eczema care. This includes avoiding flare triggers, and sticking to a skin care routine that keeps the skin moisturized, and minimizes itchiness. Still, flares do happen. If inflammation cannot be reduced with good lifestyle and skin care habits alone, there are a wide variety of both over-the-counter and prescription medications available to manage the flares.

Many people experience disappointment at the lack of progress conventional medicine is able to make against their Eczema, and unfortunately most of them have no idea how much help some natural therapies can be. Ive compiled a few tips here that may help you find some natural relief.

How to Relieve Eczema

Use an emollient. It’s like a regular moisturizer, except that it’s got a base of FAT. Yes fat. It may seem gross but when you take into account that the fat layer will seal the moisture inside your skin and stop itching and cracking, it doesn’t seem quite so gross huh? If you apply an emollient directly after bathing or showering, you will really feel better as that is when there is the most moisture available to be locked under your skin.

Ingredients in this Simple Goats Milk Soap for Eczema

Almond Oil is both a moisturizer that supplies water to the skin and an emollient that smooths the skin. Studies have shown that almond oil can help relieve itching and dryness and reduce the symptoms of dermatitis.

Mango Butter can help promote cell regeneration, which maintains the appearance of youthful skin and can be applied directly to skin to soothe the symptoms of eczema. This 2008 study concluded that mango butter rebuilds the natural skin barrier as it replenishes moisture for better skin protection leaves the skin smooth and hydrated.

Goat’s Milk Soap is great for eczema as it is so gentle on sensitive skin by helping to remove dead skin cells and encouraging new skin cell growth. Goat’s milk provides a great moisture barrier that encourages deep hydration for your skin which reduces irritation and redness common in eczema and other sensitive skin conditions. 

Lavender essential oil is good for eczema as it moistures your skin and reduces dryness. Lavender has antifungal properties and reduces inflammation, which means is can help keep eczema at bay.
