Arbonne or Topical Steroids for Baby Eczema77
The baby care market in North America has become a multi-billion dollar industry. The reason for this is because consumers are becoming aware that there are better choices available today to nourish and protect their babies skin from the environment. These products are safe, pure and specifically designed to meet the needs of young skin.
There are a few challenges that come with keeping a baby's skin healthy. They have very thin skin which makes it difficult to retain moisture. It takes several years for the skin to develop a thicker, protective layer to the harmful toxins in the environment. It's very common for babies to form inadequate amounts of sebum and sweat. This is vital to the formation of the the skin's acid mantle, which is the skin's defense against the environment.
Soap is destroys the skin's acid mantle and should not be used on babies. This invites various skin conditions for babies, particularly eczema. Only products that are pH correct should be used.
Doctors prescribe topical steroids containing hydrocortisone to treat more serious cases of eczema. Hydrocortisone is a steroid used to reduce inflammation. It can be found in many over the counter skin creams. The problem with using hydrocortisone on babies is that it further weakens their undeveloped protective mantle making them prone various viruses and has been known to cause blood poisoning.
When these steroids are applied to sensitive areas such as armpits, groin and eyelids, the skin is even thinner and more vulnerable. These areas are susceptible to irritation, hypo-pigmentation, stretch marks and development of rough looking skin. Prolonged use of these medications cause the body to build up a resistance, which leads to using stronger doses with more harmful side effects. Side effects include a weakened immune system, thinning of the skin, liver and kidney damage and burn marks on the skin.
Arbonne has chosen the natural approach to baby skin treatment. They have developed a pure, safe and beneficial baby line known as ABC (Arbonne Baby Care). All safety studies are conducted under the supervision of a pediatrician and a dermatologist.
Although these products are designed for prevention, they have also been found effective in treating eczema more effectively than topical steroids. The ABC line has been formulated to be pH correct in order to protect the acid mantle from being stripped away.
Arbonne uses botanical ingredients, which have proven to be most effective against environmental elements. These ingredients come from desert plants because they have shown the strongest protection against the environment.
