People with sensitive skin are constantly on the lookout for the best products to use on their skin. Many of these people suffer from Eczema, and they are always on the lookout for the best possible product to alleviate this condition. Choosing the best soap for eczema means understanding what natural ingredients best soothe the condition. That’s what we’ll look into here.
One of the best remedies for skin with eczema is natural homemade soaps. Homemade soaps contain only pure natural ingredients that are good for the skin. They also contain no harsh chemicals that can irritate or inflame the skin further. Using natural homemade soaps will actually improve your skin’s condition. Over-the-counter soaps, creams, and ointments are available, but many people find these products ineffective and have to resort to stronger prescription drugs which can have serious side effects. Taking the natural option with homemade soaps is an alternative many people opt for to avoid these nasty side effects or further skin damage.
The most common problem with eczema is the dryness of the skin. This makes it extremely vulnerable to infection. Using a soap that contains no harsh chemicals will help keep the skin clean and hydrated. It will also help prevent infection. Many people with eczema use homemade soaps as a preventive measure. That’s because using homemade soaps will not only alleviate the symptoms of eczema but also prevent the condition from ever occurring again. There are many different recipes for homemade soap, and each ingredient plays a role in nourishing and moisturizing skin to keep it healthy.

It is completely safe and non-toxic, making it an excellent option for skin with eczema. Let's look into why and how our soaps interact with your skin in the best possible way.
There are two ways handmade soaps help treat eczema. First, handmade soaps are made through the process of saponification. This process is when the fats and oils in the soap are chemically changed into something called soap molecules. These soap molecules interact with water and form an emulsion that nourishes and moisturizes the skin. When you use handmade soap, the natural oils in the soap gently bathe your skin. This helps nourish the skin and keeps it hydrated. It also provides an antibacterial shield against infection.
The second way handmade soaps help treat eczema is by containing anti-inflammatory agents. These agents work to reduce the swelling and irritation caused by eczema. Some of the ingredients used to create our handmade soaps contain herbs that have this effect on the body. For example, chamomile has a natural anti-inflammatory agent, which makes it great for soothing irritated skin. We’ll dive deeper into how handmade soap ingredients further soothe skin eczema in the next section. Using homemade soap will help alleviate the symptoms of eczema and prevent the condition from ever occurring again.
Diving deeper into what ingredients are best for skin with eczema, we have to take a look at watch the properties of each ingredient are. But before we get there, let's go through the basic ingredients all soaps have to make it, well, soap.
Oils are the main ingredient in all handmade soaps. They provide cleansing and moisturizing agents. Oils can be derived from animal or vegetable sources. The most common oils used in making handmade soap are olive oil, coconut oil, palm oil, castor oil, soybean oil, and sweet almond oil. These oils are very effective for skin with eczema because they are rich in fatty acids, which help nourish and hydrate the skin. These oils also have antibacterial and antifungal properties, which makes them great for treating skin conditions like eczema.
Essential oils are extracted from plants. They provide fragrance in handmade soaps. There are more than 5,000 different essential oils known to man. Each one has a unique chemical compound that gives it a specific scent. Some of the most common essential oils used to make handmade soap are lavender, rosemary, lemon, orange, pine, sandalwood, tea tree, chamomile, jasmine, ylang-ylang, clove, frankincense, myrrh, and patchouli. These oils have a relaxing effect on the mind and body. They can be used to calm an overstimulated nervous system and promote a sense of well-being. Using essential oils in your homemade soap will add a lovely aroma that will uplift your spirits and create a peaceful atmosphere in your home.
Natural colorants are used to give handmade soaps a unique look. They come from plants, minerals, and shellfish. Each natural colorant has its own unique chemical compound, which provides it with a certain color. The most common natural colorants used in making handmade soap are cochineal (a red dye made from crushed insects), carmine (a deep red dye made from ground up dried blood), beetroot (a vivid red dye made from the roots of a beet), ochre (an earthy yellow dye derived from the shells of animal waste), iron oxide (a grayish-yellow pigment made from ground up hematite ore), and logwood (a brownish-red dye made from the heartwood of a tree). Natural colorants have many health benefits. They are often used as a cosmetic ingredient because they do not cause any allergic reactions. They are also non-toxic and safe for people with sensitive skin. They can be used by people with eczema or other skin irritations. They also have a deodorizing effect which makes them perfect for use in homemade soap.
Ingredients that calm skin with eczema include: coconut oil, she butter, Patchouli, lavender, ginger, glycerin, and fully cured lye have emollient properties, which means they moisturize the skin. They also have anti-inflammatory properties, which reduce redness and swelling and help maintain the integrity of the skin's barrier function.
This keeps moisture locked inside the skin where it belongs and prevents water loss. When you use to see these ingredients in your homemade soap, your skin will be left soft, smooth, and healthy. Ingredients like these are great for people with dry skin and eczema because they add an extra hydration level. They also make the skin feel softer and smoother. This is because the oil molecules penetrate into the surface of the skin to create a protective layer. This layer prevents moisture loss and keeps the skin soft and smooth. It also gives the skin a healthy, radiant glow.
Coconut oil is saturated fat which has many excellent benefits for the skin. It penetrates deep into the skin to provide immediate relief from dryness and flaking. It also helps increase the skin's natural oils, which makes it softer and smoother. It also has emollient properties, which means it moisturizes the skin. Coconut oil is non-toxic and can be used by people with eczema or other skin irritations. It has a deodorizing effect which makes it perfect for use in homemade soap.
Shea Butter has emollient properties, which means it moisturizes the skin. It is also anti-inflammatory which reduces redness and swelling and helps maintain the integrity of the skin's barrier function. Butter is excellent for people with dry skin and eczema because it adds extra hydration. It also makes the skin softer and smoother. This is because the fatty acids in butter penetrate into the skin’s surface to create a protective layer. This layer prevents moisture loss and keeps the skin soft and smooth. It also gives the skin a healthy, radiant glow.
Lye is an alkaline ingredient that is used to make soap. It is caustic and can cause severe burns if it comes in contact with the skin. However, lye is essential for making soap. It reacts with the fats and oils in the vegetable or animal matter you use to make your soap to create a strong chemical bond. This bond causes the fat and oil in the soap to be removed from the surface of the skin. This process is called saponification, and it is what makes your homemade soap work so well. Without lye, all you have is a big chunk of fat and oil that just sits on the surface of your skin. However, the harmful effects of lye on the skin are eliminated when handmade soap is allowed to naturally curr for 3 to 4 weeks. This decreases its harmful components, making it mild and safe to use on a daily basis, even for those with dry skin or eczema.
Glycerin is a colorless, odorless, tasteless liquid that occurs naturally as a by-product of the soap-making process. It has a slightly oily feel to it and is an excellent moisturizer and softener for the skin. It also benefits dry, cracked heels, sunburns, and chapped lips. It works as an effective humectant which means it attracts and holds moisture to the skin. When used in homemade soap, glycerin acts as a penetration enhancer which allows the other ingredients in your homemade soap to deeply penetrate the skin's layers to provide long-lasting hydration and conditioning.
Patchouli is the main ingredient in many handmade soaps like Blue Bison Soapery's Ginger Patchouli Recipe. It has a strong penetrating fragrance that is known to be beneficial for cleansing and conditioning the skin. Patchouli contains powerful anti-inflammatory agents that reduce redness and irritation caused by acne or eczema. In addition, patchouli includes a chemical compound called patchoulol, which is an antiseptic agent that kills bacteria on the surface of the skin. These properties make patchouli an effective ingredient in homemade soaps to cleanse and condition the skin.
Ginger is another ingredient you may have seen mentioned in other homemade soap recipes. It has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which makes it an effective cleanser and conditioner for dry or damaged skin. It also helps fight off acne and the bacteria that causes acne. It has a spicy, warm scent that stimulates circulation and warms up the body. It is said to energize the mind and body. The ginger in this recipe is added to the essential oils and glycerin to create a skin softening and deeply penetrating moisturizing soap.
Lavender is one of the best-known essential oils for skincare. It has a soothing and calming effect on the skin and relieves muscle tension. Lavender oil is often added to bath and massage oils to relax tense muscles and aid in relaxation. In homemade soaps, lavender essential oil works as an antiseptic agent to kill bacteria on the surface of the skin. This property makes it an effective ingredient in homemade soaps to cleanse and condition the skin.
Eucalyptus also has potent anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. It also helps cleanse your skin from grim and dirt build-up that can cause acne. Eucalyptus has a fresh, camphorous scent.
