Is SWIM SKIN ok to use on eczema?

SWIM SKIN has been tested on many different adults and children who suffer with eczema.  This includes my sister who has suffered with chronic eczema for most of her life. Yes, I made her go into the pool and use SWIM SKIN to test it for me (that’s what family is for!). She said “It made my skin feel really nice and normally I am really itchy, because of my eczema, but I was not itchy at all...”

There has been nothing but positive feedback on using SWIM SKIN on eczema, however it is always recommended to test it on your skin first.

 

The only ingredient I’ve never heard of is sunflower lecithin, what it is?
