TalkEczema product evaluation points to possible relief

91% of people report less itchiness and 83% claim soft water reduced the severity of their eczema.

These surprising results came out of a recent product evaluation carried out with the UK's largest Eczema support group TalkEczema. Comments from participants include:


"Since using a water softener her skin does feel smoother and I have to use less cream. Also at the moment less reaction when in contact with the water."
"Even my husband has said how moisturized his skin feels after showering. I have even managed to reduce the amount of emollient that I apply each day to my daughter."
"I cannot believe the difference the softener has made, I am no longer getting dry flaky patches on my face any more. And there is the added bonus of not having to use so much detergent in my wash etc, so that's got to be better for my skin too."
