Many children under the age of five suffer from skin conditions such as Eczema and Psoriasis that cause dry, itchy and flaky skin which can not only be uncomfortable and upsetting for the child but it can also cause great distress to parents as well. WESTLAB, the UK’s supplier of premium, natural and high-grade bathing salts has launched its first bath salts for kids – Kids Dead Sea Bath Salts suitable for infants from 3 months old.
These unrefined Kids Dead Sea Bath Salts sourced from the depths of the Dead Sea have been renowned for their therapeutic benefits since ancient times. Unrefined and cleaned without the use of harsh chemicals or bleaching agents, WESTLAB genuine Dead Sea salts are rich in magnesium, which is required to maintain fatty acid levels in the skin and manage histamine levels thereby reducing inflammation and maintain skin moisture.
Regular salt bathing is a popular choice for people with skin conditions that are prone to Eczema and Psoriasis, as it helps relax muscles, replenish essential minerals and support natural skin healing. The Dead Sea salt is less likely to aggravate skin in the same way that traditional bath and shower products can.
Available in a value 500g pack, the Kids Dead Sea Bath Salts are really easy to use. For infants over 3 months old, use a heaped teaspoon in a baby bath. For older children, initially use approximately 250g per 15cm adult bath which can be increased to a maximum of 500g for under 10s. Allow the salt to dissolve in warm water (approx 37°C) and let your child enjoy bathtime for 20 minutes up to 3 times per week.
These salts are the perfect choice for parents who do not wish to resort only to steroids, antihistamines and petrochemicals to help reduce the itching, but like to include naturally soothing products as well. If the salt bath doesn’t cover all the areas of dry skin, parents can use the salts to create salt-drenched bandages instead. Simply soak a muslin cloth or bandage in the warm salt solution, then loosely wrap it around the affected area and keep refreshing with warm salt water for around 15-20 minutes this can have an instant soothing effect.
Westlab Kids Dead Sea Bath Salts 500g costs £3.99 and is available from Boots stores nationwide, leading health stores and online www.westlab.co.uk
