Since we are talking about caring for the whole body when it comes to back to school, I am very excited to share with you Episencial skin care. Episencial skin care is a three step skin care system for your child designed to help cleanse, nourish and defend. Being a family who has battled eczema and sensitive shin, finding products that are good for us can be tricky. Owen, the middle man, has the trickiest skin of all. Each of these products are gentle and safe for your child, even for hard to treat skin. This is skin care that is also health care. We use this system regularly on both boys, keeping their skin in top shape. Owen is the one who I am always concerned about when I switch soaps and lotions. He has tolerated these new products without one single breakout. When we would lotion him up in the past with a new cream , there has always been a transition into the new product. He often complained of it hurting or stinging for the first couple applications. Thankfully, Owen has not had any issue with Episencial. From the very first application, he never reacted negatively. I am sure it helps that his diet is playing a big part in controlling his eczema, but it makes me so happy to have products that are good for him and his picky skin!
After the wash and lotion, you have the Sunny Sunscreen. Really sunscreen for back to school? Yep! It is so important that we protect our child's skin. Not just in the hot summer months, but all year round. Remember you child is being exposed to the sun usually around the sun's peek hours for recess. The Episencial Sunny Sunscreen is a great, toxin free sunscreen. You will not find any harmful ingredients like additives, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Harsh Preservatives, EDTA, SLS, Synthetic Fragrances, Phthalates or Gluten. This sunscreen is rated among the top sunscreens by the EWG and is water safe for 80 mins. Adding this to your child's hygiene ritual will help protect your child from harmful damage by the sun. We have been using Sunny Sunscreen this summer and are so happy with the results! It is thicker than other more common brands, so you will need to take a little more time smoothing it in. I used it on my ultra fair skin as well. I was very happy with the protection I received and loved that there were no harmful chemicals or toxins going into my skin.
Not only are the products great, but the packaging is adorable! I am a huge Eric Carle fan, so these products just make me happy! Of course the kids love the pictures too. Episencial products are reasonably priced ranging from $9.00-24.00. The three step system that I received is available for $30.00, plus right now you can save 20% with this special coupon code EPISIMPLECITY.
