Alistaire turned 6 months old yesterday:
I can’t believe that much time has gone by already. 6 months? He is a big boy, he was 28″ long and 19 pounds at his checkup and is starting an “army crawl”. He so badly wants to keep up with Walker.
And finally I am seeing a change in his skin. I have mentioned before just how bad his eczema was. It was REALLY bad. I used the prescription ointment his Doctor prescribed just enough to calm his skin down. His face looked sunburnt from the red skin, he always had chapped skin. On his face, neck, head, arms, chest…everywhere.Once I got his skin healed I changed his body wash/shampoo. We were already using Aveno unscented for eczema but even that was too harsh. I was approached My True Nature about their products. At this point I figured I had little to lose – everything else was drying him out.
He has used their Daisy Natural 2 in 1 Shampoo & Body Wash for the past month or so, and what an improvement.
The ingredient list:
“Purified water, aloe leaf juice*, decyl glucoside**, sodium coco sulfate**, lauryl lactyl lactate, plantago extract*, white peony tea extract*, natural scent, citric acid, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate *Certified organic and originating from organic farms in California or the Pacific Northwest or **Ecocert product originating from Germany.”
Previously when he’d get out of his bath his skin was tight and prickly red all over, I would have to apply ointment or lotion over his entire body – and he still looked bad. This was a candid photo on May 28th:
You can see how bad it was – and he was covered in Aquaphor. He would scratch at his head, arms, legs – anywhere he could reach.
A month ago he looked better:
Still had the red patches around his mouth though.
Now after I bathe him on most days his skin looks great. I only to use the prescription ointment 2 or so times a week, instead of 2X a day!
And I love their Clio’s Beary Soft Lotion:
No scent outside of the natural scents of the ingredients. I’ve mentioned before how most lotions/sunblock and makeup cause me to itch all over/minor hives. This lotion spreads easily, isn’t greasy and my skin feels great. The trial size “travel bottle” fits in my purse and backpack nicely, letting me carry it. I have used it on both Alistaire and Walker as well. Smooth skin like a baby should have!
The ingredient list?
“Purified water, aloe leaf juice*, shae butter*, sunflower oil* infused with calendula*, comfrey*, plantain*, chickweed*, St. John’s wort*, chamomile* & yarrow root*, behentrimonium methosulfate (and) cetearyl alcohol, bees wax*, hydrolyzed oat flour*, guar gum, sodium benzoate, potassium sorbate
*Certified organic ingredient from organic farm in California or the Pacific Northwest.

And considering the products work….I can say I like them! Truth be told I am considering trying the shampoo/body wash on myself, I have a feeling I will love it. Small business and cruelty free? An even sweeter deal.
