Putting the Bubbles Back into Baths for People with Eczema and Sensitive Skin

Putting the Bubbles Back into Baths for People with Eczema and Sensitive Skin

What does a little girl with super sensitive skin who couldn't enjoy a simple bubble bath as a child or use commercial soaps do? She grows up and launches her own range of plant based skin saving products, that have been helping people take care of themselves naturally for over 15 years now and more importantly, have put the bubbles and fun back into baths, minus the harmful, irritating and toxic ingredients.

3 in 10 Australian Children Suffer From Skin Sensitivities

Memories of having fun in a bubble filled bath as a child is something many of us
cherish. But, for the 3 in 10 Australian children that suffer from sensitive skin including eczema, the simple joy of having fun in the tub often leads to tears, painfully irritated, dry and itchy skin. It's no wonder that parents and care-givers take on the arduous task of monitoring every skincare ingredient in a product, before trusting it enough to try on their children, especially their little ones with eczema or sensitive skin.

Bubbles Without The Bull Allows Kids With Sensitive Skin to Enjoy Bubble Baths

Thanks to an all-natural Australian Botanical product by save our skin, kids across the country have been given the chance to join in on bath tub banter again. Bubbles Without The Bull is a multi-functional hand wash, body wash and bubble bath, specially formulated for eczema sufferers, sensitive skin and can be enjoyed by the entire family. save our skin was founded in 2005 by Melbourne based mum and eczema sufferer, Anastasia Lambadaridis Heggie. Anastasia's mission, is to help people take care of themselves naturally:

"So often these days we are told what is "good", but, on closer inspection of product ingredients, even a lot of the so called "green labels", aren't what they claim to be. It was from this pure frustration and dissatisfaction that save our skin was born; to help treat my own eczema and my newborn son's sensitive skin".
Creator and CEO of save our skin, Anastasia Lambadaridis Heggie, says.

Her range of 100% Natural Australian Botanical skin saving products, for face and body is suitable for the entire family. The ingredient list keeps the ethos of less equals more alive and is kept minimal and confusing botanical names are explained so that people can understand what they are actually using.

"As a young girl, I couldn't wash with commercial soaps or bubble baths, they would burn and irritate my skin. At worst I would end up in hospital with severe eczema. Fast forward thirty or so years and as an adult I'm making up for lost time. The bath tub is my sanctuary, a place I go probably a little too often after a non-stop day of work and raising two boys", states Anastasia.

"Our Bubbles Without the Bull have been formulated with the entire family in mind, especially little ones with eczema. Kids deserve to be making fun memories in the tub, it's a quintessential rite of passage. Both my boys have eczema and I'm thankful that they haven't had to skip on baths like l did as a child. Our formula is non toxic, non drying and it's what we leave out that saves our skin," continues Anastasia.

How is save our skin's Bubbles Without The Bull Different?

The difference is in save our skin's plant based formulations and the selective ingredients they choose to leave out. Bubbles Without The Bull doesn't contain any Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS), no fragrances or known skin irritants. SLS is a very simple molecule and super small in size, this gives it the ability to penetrate the outer layers of the skin, especially when used in conditions that encourage the skins pores to open, such as a warm bath or shower. When SLS penetrates the the skin irritation manifests, resulting in red, dry, scaly skin and eczema. Add fragrances, preservatives and other known irritants to the equation and the irritation levels accelerate. save our skin's Bubbles Without The Bull is a gentle, plant-based, big bubbling formulation that contains a natural surfactant from Coconut to lift away dirt plus native Australian Spearmint, Mandarin, Rosemary and Tea Tree oils for a beautiful fresh scent. Completely free from artificial fragrances, gluten and toxins. Add a few squirts to your little ones' bubble bath to erase a day of play and messy easting! Or keep it on your basin and use it as a hand wash that won't dry out your skin. Or run your own bath and enjoy the bubbles minus the bull yourself! Made in Australia. Vegan. Gluten free.
