The Eczema Gummy is safe for both kids and adults! Vitamin D is an important part of immune regulation, mood management, and growth. There are no known negative effects of MSM or evening primrose oil in children. It’s always best to talk with your pediatrician about any dietary supplements your child may need!

Listen, everyone’s eczema is different. My itch is different from yours. We created the Eczema Gummy through personal trial and error. When our team tried our final formula, we had less itchy flare ups, shorter flare ups, and speedier recovery. The Eczema Gummy was designed to help reduce inflammation and repair skin barriers, so you’ll likely see results in those areas.

We wish, but no. The exact cause of eczema is unknown and there’s no known cure. The best method of treatment right now is symptom management. We created the Eczema Gummy based on small scale clinical trials using these ingredients for symptom management. If your eczema is severe or causing disruptions to your daily life, visit your dermatologist to come up with a symptom management plan together.

Dietary supplements can take a while for your body to acclimate to. We recommend giving it 90 days for your body to adjust. Depending on the severity of your condition, you may see results sooner!

Of course! The Eczema Gummy is for all of us with dry, itchy, inflamed skin.

The Eczema Gummy was formulated based on the results of a series of clinical trials examining the benefits of vitamin D3, MSM, and EPO supplementation in individuals with atopic dermatitis. You can find the collection of that research here. We expect the final results of our clinical trial to be available in early 2022!

MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane. It sounds scary but does great things! MSM is an organic sulfur compound that’s actually already in your body. It’s also in some meats, seafood, fruits, and veggies. For the last 20 years, MSM has been a popular holistic remedy for pain and inflammation related to arthritis, and there’s been anecdotal evidence to suggest it helps reducing inflammation in the skin as well.

Right?? Turns out, vitamin D plays an important role in immune system function and, as far as anyone can tell, eczema seems to be an autoimmune disorder. Researchers studied children with eczema in areas with low winter exposure to sunlight and high winter exposure and found that kids who had more access to sunlight had reduced frequency and intensity of their flare ups. Additionally, vitamin D has few natural dietary sources so without lots of sunlight, you’re likely to be vitamin D deficient. In our modern society we don’t get much sun--working inside, living in polluted cities, and slathering up with SPF all prevent us from getting our daily vitamin D.
