Motherhood comes with a variety of surprises, and one mother was in for a big one a month after her son was born. The first few weeks were processes of trial and error in what was good or bad for her little bundle of joy. She noticed her child’s skin was constantly dry, chafing and itchy. She struggled with finding the right products to keep her child’s skin moisturized. No matter what she tried, his skin constantly dried out. After trial and error, she sought professional help. A dermatologist confirmed her son had eczema.
She was given corticosteroid creams to help combat and treat her child’s eczema. While they worked and cleared the symptoms, this was a temporary fix. She realized constant use can alter his skin’s composite and thus weaken it. Determined to relieve him from the irritability, she worked to find a natural solution. After numerous attempts, she created a formula of natural organic ingredients that relieved her sons symptoms. Within a week, the rashes and scars started to clear up and his skin stayed moisturized longer than the store bought and steroid creams she used.
Rooted in family values, Angela wanted to share her creation with other families who have to deal with Eczema and Psoriasis. Angela’s vision was to create safe and effective all natural products that skin can benefit from. All in all, her products can be used by everyone regardless of skin condition, and Ahima Essentials was brought into existence.
