Hi,

 

My DD had eczema as a baby and we were using California Baby products and Aveeno eczema therapy so far. But she has outgrown the eczema and is now a 28 mo old. I was wondering - what are your go-to safe thick moisturizers for winter?

 

If you want to give input on what this mamma can use for winter too it would be nice :-)

 

TIA

I use my wood polish. horrors.gif

 

I make it out of beeswax and olive oil. It works well, and we finish toys on nearly a daily basis right now, so it's usually the most convenient. I finish the toys and the kids at the same time. orngbiggrin.gif It's cheap, too, since I buy my beeswax in bulk. We use pure cocoa butter every now and again as well, especially for chapped lips since none of us like the taste or smell of the wood polish nearly as much.

Olive oil!  I second that one if a moisturizer is needed.  I like to put it in a small, pretty bottle since it's just nicer for me to use that way (DH would just use it from the jug, though).

We use Eucerin!  We have the lotion, the calming creme, and then the original, which is really thick, comes in a tub.  We get ours from target, it's about $10, and lasts a LONG time.  It keeps our whole family moisturized!

I use the Weleda Baby Creme in the tube.  In fact, I use it on the soles of my feet daily and it's wonderful.  My daughter is mixed ethnicity and gets ashy skin.  I find it too thick to use on her whole body so I use their calendula lotion which is WON. DER. FUL.

 

But, uhhhh... yeah... not nearly as inexpensive as the options listed above. redface.gif  Would love the "recipe" for the beeswax furniture polish formula!  We've tried olive oil but it's just too oily for us.

I use 4 parts beeswax to 1 part olive oil. Grate the beeswax, melt it with the olive oil, mix it, and let it cool.
