Whatever topical solution you use on your skin, there are two key elements of eczema skincare that need to work in tandem: moisturisation and reducing inflammation.
It turns out that Baobab oil is a real multi-tasking hero – it does both! Baobab oil is cold pressed from the seeds in the pods of Baobab trees and contains significant levels of EFA’s (Essential Fatty Acids) It is particularly rich in Omega 9 (Oleic acid). Oleic acid make oil “richer” so it becomes extra-efficient at sealing in moisture thereby very effectively restoring a normal skin barrier function. Skin hydration and moisturisation is essential to help relieve the dry, itchy, flaky skin that is associated with Eczema and Baobab’s Omega 6 (Linoleic acid) gives the oil a wonderfully light feel, making it fast-absorbing and non-comedogenic so it won’t block pores.
So not only is Baobab oil ‘richer’ providing an increased ability to seal in moisture, it’s also lighter, absorbing rapidly without leaving a greasy residue.
Baobab oil feels light and soothing on the skin and really helps to reduce the inflammatory redness, flakiness and dryness associated with Eczema. Combined with Calendula and Schizandra, BaoCare’s SOOTHE provides potent relief for irritated and inflamed skin, toning down the inflammatory heat of Eczema, calming and soothing the skin back to health.
