We automatically assume babies have soft, smooth skin. So when your baby is prone to skin irritations, it can really throw you for a loop. Baby eczema appears as red or dry patches of skin, and it’s usually also itchy and rough. For babies who are predisposed to eczema, the first rashes typically appear around 2 to 4 months. And, like all things in parenting—this wasn’t in the manual!

Fear not, baby eczema is more common than you may think. In fact, about 20 percent of children may have some form of eczema, according to Anna Bender, MD, a pediatric dermatologist at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York-Presbyterian in New York City. Luckily, every parent’s favorite baby brand, Honest, recently launched a new category designed just for babies with sensitive skin. Its Soothing Therapy eczema collection offers a gentle routine for eczema-prone skin.

The assortment features a body wash made with prebiotics and natural ingredients, like oatmeal and coconut oil, and a soothing balm to help relieve dry, irritated skin. The balm is made with prebiotics and with natural ingredients, such as colloidal oatmeal, shea butter, and coconut, olive and safflower oils. Both the body wash and therapy balm are made without parabens, silicones, petrolatum, mineral oil, and are seal-certified by the National Eczema Association.

Parents already know and love everything Honest has to offer, so the new Soothing Therapy line is sure to be a hit.
