I hope you are all happy and healthy!
I have had a really busy few weeks, and there is lots for you all to look forward to. As always, I am working hard to help as many of you as possible, but I don’t do this alone. What many of you do not see is the incredible team that I work with who are all experts in their fields. That’s why I thought I would take the time to tell you a little bit about the people behind the scenes.
My amazing The Beauty of Eczema™ products were something that I had wanted to produce for a very long time, but I needed some expert help to do it. That is why I partnered with some incredible skincare experts to develop our beautiful products and make them something that ticked the long list of requirements that I had.
I knew that I needed to work with the very best, so I was over the moon when I met Lorna. She is a cosmetic scientist with huge levels of experience and knowledge, and I knew straight away that she was someone that it would be terrific to work with. She took the time to get to know everything I needed from the products, and she has become a huge part of the brand. She took great care with our preservative efficacy testing to make sure that the products were always safe and effective and yet could still be almost 100% natural without going mouldy and horrible on your bathroom shelf.
Once this was complete, Lorna also put the products through stability testing and made sure that they worked with the packaging that I wanted to use. Our formulator Lorna worked with a qualified toxicologist to run a full safety assessment on each product and together they gathered reams of documents about the ingredients and their percentage in the formulations to demonstrate each product meets the strict EU safety requirements including that they were safe for babies from birth. We then went above and beyond the EU requirements and completed patch testing on human volunteers with sensitive and eczema prone skins. You can learn more about that in our video here.
As you all know, my knowledge of eczema is substantial, having lived with it for years and knowing what was needed to make my skin and your skin feel comfortable. It was great to work with experts like Lorna so that we could combine science with real life experience to produce skincare that could really be beneficial and work. I have always known what I wanted to achieve with the products, and Lorna really understood and shared my vision, so she was the perfect person to make it come to life.
With Lorna and the team’s help, we could identify the ingredients that we really wanted to use. Since working with Lorna, my own scientific and ingredients knowledge has grown massively, which enabled me to work even more closely on developing the products. We tested so many different ingredients and combinations to make sure that when we finally settled on a formulation, it was one that you would all love as much as I did. If you want to learn more about how we formulated the products you can watch this video of Lorna and I.
As an eczema sufferer, I was able to test the products and really understand whether they would work and feel amazing on the skin. I am so thrilled that now we have a Calming Cream, Skin Warrior Wash, Pamper Me Bathing Oil and Salty Soother in our range of products that have been so carefully put together for you to all love as much as we do as a team.
The amazing experts that I have worked with helped me to make sure that you can feel confidence in our products. They were created with a unique combination of science and love so that you can use something safe, effective and caring.
Lots of love and positive vibes, Camille xx
