Eczema is a skin condition that is characterised by red, itchy, dry, flaky patches and affects over 10% of people globally, according to the National Eczema Association. There are multiple factors at play when it comes to both what causes eczema and what exacerbates it, but the products you’re using are a major component—particularly things you reach for daily, including body lotion.
Dermatologists recommend opting for gentle, fragrance-free body lotion formulas that hydrate skin while soothing it and reducing itchy skin.

PENTAVITIN® (or Saccharide Isomerate) is a naturally derived plant extract that is rich in hydrating properties, giving improved skin protection against dehydration.
It creates a moisture barrier instantly on the skin after application and is deeply binding within the layers of skin, providing hydration for up to 72 hours. As the skin is so deeply hydrated after application, the appearance of fine lines is reduced. And, unlike Hyaluronic Acid, it can’t be washed away.
It also keeps skin strong by improving and maintaining the skin’s barrier, protecting it against the damaging effects of environmental factors like pollution, cold weather, and heat. On top of that, it relieves itchy, flaky, sensitive skin, helping it feel soft and smooth.
Rich in Vitamin E, potassium, lecithin and many other nutrients which nourish and moisturise the skin. It also relieves inflammation from psoriasis and eczema while preventing acne. Research has also shown that linoleic acid, oleic acid and other monosaturated fatty acids in avocado oil can speed up wound healing.
Avocado oil calms itchy skin and heals chapped skin while replenishing dry skin. It also shields skin from ultraviolet radiation and protects against damage. Avocado oil also has anti-inflammatory effects, which can help to reduce the redness and inflammation associated with acne.
Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe Vera) Extract
Ancient Egyptians called aloe vera the ‘plant of immortality’ as it contains numerous vitamins such as A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, B12, C and E, and choline and folic acid.
Aloe vera’s chemical structure allows it to penetrate the skin (dermis) deeply, ensuring full absorption of vitamins and essential acids. It also stimulates the fibroblasts to generate more collagen.
A natural anti-inflammatory and healing agent on cuts and burns; it regenerates the skin, soothes and heals wounds, acne, skin blemishes and so on.
Quaternary Ammonium Compounds (Benzalkonium Chloride) are ammonium salts that have at least one positively charged nitrogen atom, typically linked to four alkyl or benzyl groups.
These compounds kill bacteria and viruses by disrupting the structures of proteins and lipid membranes making them highly effective sanitizers and disinfectants.
Tocopheryl acetate is a specific form of vitamin E and is rich in antioxidants which protects your skin from damaging compounds called free radicals.
Tocopheryl acetate also contains anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties; this helps maintain your skin’s youthful look while keeping it supple and hydrated.
