To treat eczema and dermatitis on adult skin, there’s also Skinfix’s Body Repair balm.

Skinfix

Birchbox Breakdown

Here’s an un-fun fact: One in five newborns suffers from painful eczema outbreaks. Not cute. Luckily, this pediatrician- and dermatologist-tested balm is gentle enough for babies (which means your sensitive skin can handle it too). It’s loaded with soothing colloidal oatmeal and natural oils to treat very dry skin, and it’s free of worries—that means no BPA, parabens, soy, steroids, or phthalates, which can make eczema worse.

How it Works

Proven skin-soothers (think: zinc oxide and colloidal oatmeal) heal irritation while restoring skin’s natural lipid barrier, which allows skin to hold onto moisture and fend off future irritants. Aloe and jojoba oil provide much-needed moisture, resulting in fewer flare-ups (and for babies, sleepless nights). The formula is made without water, which also helps to nourish and protect.

How to Use

Apply a small amount to dry, itchy, and red areas as needed throughout the day, and always after bathing.

Active Ingredient: Colloidal oatmeal 2%. Inactive Ingredients: allantoin, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, beeswax, helianthus annuus (sunflower) oil, liquidambar orientalis (styrax), myroxylon balsumum (balsam tolu), paraffin wax, petrolatum, simmondisia chinensis
( jojoba) seed oil, styrax benzoin resin extract (benzoin), tocopherol, zinc oxide. Packaging is BPA free and recyclable.

I suffer from occasional eczema on my hands and all though it "hydrates" my skin, I didn't find that it did a very good job of mitigating my outbreaks. Left hands greasy for some time after application. Being its safer than other OTC lotions and creams, I would have used it on my kids when they were younger, but I just need something to work.

I bought this to use on my toddlers eczema after receiving a sample of the basic skinfix balm in March's box. I really like this brand and this eczema balm really helps to soothe my daughters skin. I slather this all over her body too soothe and heal the rash and then apply a basic petroleum product to seal in moisture and prevent the eczema balm from rubbing off. I have recommended this product to several friends with itchy skin. If you have sensitive or rash prone skin give this a try! Oh, also it smells unusual but it a good way.
