We had a very real problem to solve, right in our own home. My husband and two of our children suffered from eczema. We were more concerned about our daughter Samantha. She was diagnosed with eczema at 9 months. At the time, we could not find a moisturizer that would keep her skin moisturized for more than a hour to a hour and a half.
Samantha was in daycare and the provider didn't have time to moisturize her skin ever 2 hours. Many times we would pick her up, she would be dry and itchy. Sometimes she was miserable because she would have scratched so much that her skin would bleed.
At this point, we were super disappointed by cost and the ineffectiveness of the moisturizers being suggested by her pediatrician.
We knew there wasn't a cure for eczema, but knew there had to be something that provided relief. After extensive research, we learned that eczema was actually an autoimmune disease and we needed to avoid her eczema triggers.
We found ingredients like sunflower oil and hemp seed oil which were ceramide rich oils. We then learned about glycerin with is a humectant that pulls moisture from the air. We also learned about moisture sealing butters like shea butter and avocado butter. That's when we landed on the gold standard for nourished and hydrated skin and All Over Butter was born.
2021 was a huge year for the company. Not only did we have All Over Butter and Eczema Relief Oatmeal Soap dermatologist tested, we also became a certified minority owned business.
