Barrier Protectant Moisturizers

All moisturizers are not the same. Individuals with eczema need a moisturizer with a barrier protectant. Your skin is the first line of defense against allergens, irritants bacteria and viruses. When skin loses moisture, it becomes dry, its natural barrier breaks down, and cracks can form. A moisturizer with barrier protectant will prevent moisture loss from happening while it relieves your symptoms and helps skin repair itself.

2. Hypoallergenic

3. Noncomedogenic (won’t clog pores)
