Ingredients are an important part of any skincare product.
We pay attention to the ingredients because we want to feel comfortable with whatever comes in contact with our skin and that it is safe; it will not irritate the skin, nor will it cause harm once absorbed into the body.
At LEMYKA, we understand the chemistry behind the ingredients and are highly selective when it comes to what we use in our products.
While natural and organic ingredients are preferred by us and many consumers, it is important to understand that even naturally-occurring substances can be made synthetically, and just because an ingredient is synthetic it does not mean it is toxic.
We focus on scientific facts and data and make sure LEMYKA ingredients clean and safe.
Ultimately we want to make sure our products are compatible with the skin and show benefits with consistent use.
Baby Eczema Cream Key Ingredients
Eczema in Babies
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a common skin condition especially in babies. Symptoms include dry, itchy, or red skin. There may be noticeable dry flakes of the skin too. There is no cure for eczema, and it can be a lifelong condition. 25% of children have this, and it affects up to 60% of people in their first year. Infants do have a history of growing out of this with only 10-30% continuing with symptoms when they are an adult.
A combination of the environment and genetics are mainly the cause of atopic dermatitis. The condition may also come about due to skin barrier problems and mutations from the immune system. There are still current studies on investigating the skin’s microbiome and how different viruses and bacteria affect the skin.
Symptoms of eczema in infants include:
Itchy rash on cheeks
Red, itchy rash on chin (drool rash)
Flaky skin and redness on forehead and scalp
Other similar skin conditions like eczema, or atopic dermatitis, include seborrheic dermatitis, psoriasis, ringworm, and tinea. Treatment for any of this is to soothe the symptoms and protect the skin to prevent the condition from reoccurring.
As for now, finding the best baby eczema cream can be daunting since there are so many different brands out there. Know what ingredients are safe, effective, and clean for your baby.

Benefits of Sunflower Oil
Is Sunflower Oil Good for Eczema?
The sunflower is a native crop to the United States, and people often enjoy sunflower seeds as midday snacks. Sunflower oil also began to be sourced and is known today as food, medicine, and skin treatment. Sunflower oil contains vitamin E and vitamin K. Organic, cold-pressed oil is the best form for the skin.
Eczema, or atopic dermatitis, is a common condition that makes the skin red, itchy, and inflamed. This would then lead to dry, flaky skin. Sunflower oil has the ability to help the skin make ceramide fats which are beneficial for skin hydration and skin barrier improvement. Other studies have shown that it reduces the skin to thicken and help with those who suffer from long-term scratching. Sunflower oil is a popular home remedy to ease inflammation of the skin.
While sunflower oil is suitable for most skin types, there is still a possibility for an allergic reaction. Test if you have any seed or nut allergies. Consult with your doctor or allergist to get necessary tests done. If you have known allergies to ragweed, you may also have sensitivity or an allergy with sunflower oil.
