Itchy skin is one of the most frustrating and annoying sensations you can have. Just thinking about a persistent itch is enough to drive you mad.
Many people have itchy skin, often due to various common skin conditions, such as eczema (atopic dermatitis), psoriasis, or hives (urticaria), which impacts on the quality of everyday life. The worst thing about an itch is that scratching makes it worse, and people with eczema feel it more than most people, so they are getting a double assault on the body.
Dr Tey Hong Liang, runs the Itch Clinic at the National Skin Centre in Singapore, a regional centre of excellence in skin disorders. Recognising that existing moisturisers and creams were not adequately treating his patients’ itchy dry skin, Dr Tey decided to create a solution.
Suu balm have just launched a brand new version – Suu Balm Kids – that is designed specifically for the needs of children with eczema. Kids Comes in 2 different sizes! Ingredients are carefully chosen to be suitable for sensitive and problem skin.
How is it different from the original Suu Balm?
Young children have very sensitive skin – they feel things more than we adults do – so we reduced the amount of menthol (the ingredient that cools and relieves itch) to just 1%, so that Suu Balm Kids can be used at any age, from newborn upwards, without irritation. Our menthol is made directly from mint leaves, which gives the most natural cooling effect. Secondly, kids typically have drier skin than adults, so we increased the amount of skin repairing moisturising ingredients (ceramides and filaggrin breakdown products). Again, there are no steroids or parabens in Suu Balm Kids, and there are also no preservatives, and we’ve used the most gentle ingredients available to ensure Suu Balm Kids is soft, gentle and kind to your child’s skin.
- No steroids, no parabens and no preservatives
- Formulated at the National Skin Centre, Singapore
Suu Balm Kids can be purchased online at our e-store www.suubalm.com, or from Guardian in Singapore.
