Fight Winter Skin Blues with Organic Skincare

It is that time of year when dry, chapped winter skin brings us down.  Our friends at episencial skincare have created a 3 step process to combat harsh everyday elements.

Did you know skin is the largest organ and plays a critical role in immunity.  And baby skin is 5x thinner than adult skin making it even more important to pay attention to what goes on their skin.  A staggering 70% of what you put on your baby's skin is absorbed into the blood stream within 30 seconds.  

episencial plays its part by supporting skin immunity with actively healthy ingredients in 3 simple steps - Cleanse, Nourish, and Defend.

Step 1 - Cleanse - Playful Wash 2 in 1 shampoo & body wash is great for every day use and patchy (heat sensitive) kind of eczema.  It has also been chosen by select hospitals as the exclusive all natural skincare brand for "baby's first bath". Retail $9

Step 2 - Nourish - Soothing Cream - "miracle in a tube" - must have cream for everyone! Soothing Cream is also a great eczema treater.  If eczema is severe with open wounds, use nurturing balm first until the wounds heal.  Soothing cream may cause stinging sensation if the wounds are open/oozing. Tip: Cloth diaper users can substitute soothing cream as a diaper ointment.  It doesn't contain zinc which breaks down cotton.

Step 3 - Defend - Sunny Sunscreen - Broad spectrum, physical sunscreen - ideal for skin of all ages.  Also an EWG Top rated sunscreen, and it's reef safe - perfect for tropical vacays.  Retail $15

What we LOVE:  No artificial fragrances - fruit extracts provide yummy scents. No additives, parabens, harsh preservatives, SLS, Phthalates or Gluten, Petroleum.

Healthy Ingredients: Neem, probiotics & essential fatty acids including flax, omega oils, and primrose. Primrose contains vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids that can improve the immune system's ability to manufacture white blood cells and fight infection.
