The search for skincare products that cater to sensitive skin and conditions like eczema can often feel like navigating a labyrinth of confusing ingredients and promises. Amidst this complexity, organic skincare emerges as a beacon of hope, offering a natural and gentle approach to skincare that can be particularly beneficial for those with sensitive skin and eczema. In this comprehensive guide, we dive into the reasons why organic skincare stands out as the preferred choice for individuals seeking relief and comfort for their delicate skin.

Understanding Sensitive Skin and Eczema

Before delving into the benefits of organic skincare, it's crucial to understand the challenges faced by individuals with sensitive skin and eczema. Sensitive skin is characterized by heightened reactivity to external stimuli, often manifesting as redness, itching, and irritation in response to certain ingredients or environmental factors. Eczema, on the other hand, is a chronic skin condition characterized by inflammation, dryness, intense itching and an impaired skin barrier, all of which can significantly impact the quality of life for those affected.

The Gentle Touch of Organic Ingredients

At the heart of organic skincare lies a commitment to harnessing the power of nature's bounty. Organic skincare products are formulated with natural ingredients sourced from plants, herbs, and botanicals, carefully selected for their gentle yet effective properties. Unlike their synthetic counterparts, organic products are less likely to contain harsh chemicals, synthetic fragrances, and preservatives that can trigger adverse reactions in sensitive skin. It’s important to note that just because a product contains all natural ingredients, doesn’t mean it’s necessarily safe for sensitive skin. If these natural ingredients aren’t organic, they may have been sprayed with insecticides and herbicides, which is linked to contributing skin irritation and flare-ups. In the end, that skincare product could end up doing more harm than good. 

Avoidance of Harsh Chemicals

One of the primary reasons why organic skincare is preferred for sensitive skin and eczema lies in its avoidance of harsh chemicals. Conventional skincare products often contain synthetic ingredients such as parabens, sulfates, and phthalates, which can strip the skin of its natural oils and disrupt its delicate balance. For individuals with sensitive skin and eczema, exposure to these irritants can exacerbate symptoms and lead to further inflammation and discomfort. 

Soothing and Nourishing Properties

Organic skincare products are loaded with ingredients known for their soothing and nourishing properties, making them particularly well-suited for sensitive skin and eczema. Natural moisturizers like shea butter, coconut oil, sunflower oil and jojoba oil provide much-needed moisture and hydration to dry, dehydrated skin which helps to alleviate dryness and itching associated with eczema. Additionally, botanical ingredients such as lavender, chamomile, calendula and cardiospermum possess anti-inflammatory qualities that can calm irritated skin and reduce redness.

Reduced Risk of Allergic Reactions

For individuals prone to allergic reactions, organic skincare offers a safer alternative to conventional products laden with synthetic fragrances and dyes. Fragrance-free and hypoallergenic formulations are commonplace in organic skincare, minimizing the risk of triggering allergic responses in sensitive individuals. By opting for products free from common allergens, such as artificial fragrances and preservatives, individuals with sensitive skin and eczema may enjoy skincare without the fear of irritation or discomfort. It's always advisable to perform a skin patch test before applying a new product to ensure there are no skin sensitivities. Apply a small amount of the product to the under side of the forearm where it won't get washed off for 24-48 hours. Check for any signs of redness or irritation before applying it anywhere else. 

Environmentally Sustainable Practices

Beyond its benefits for individual skin health, organic skincare aligns with broader environmental values by promoting sustainable agricultural practices and minimizing the use of harmful chemicals. Organic farming methods avoid synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, prioritizing soil health, biodiversity, and water conservation. By supporting brands that champion environmental sustainability, consumers with sensitive skin and eczema can make a positive impact on both their health and the planet.

Cruelty-Free and Ethical Standards

Many organic skincare brands are committed to cruelty-free practices, ensuring that their products are not tested on animals. This ethical stance resonates with individuals who prioritize animal welfare and seek products that align with their values. By choosing cruelty-free skincare options, individuals with sensitive skin and eczema can feel confident that their skincare regimen upholds ethical standards while delivering the gentle care their skin deserves. Abby Rose Skin Care products have been proudly certified cruelty-free by The Leaping Bunny Program and PETA since 2018. 

Going Above and Beyond to Cater to Sensitive Skin 

Abby Rose Skin Care products are formulated with certified organic ingredients. We are extremely selective about every ingredient that goes into our products and from where they are sourced. We were unable to find a reputable source for the natural anti-inflammatory herb, Cardiospermum, so we chose to grow it ourselves in order to ensure its premium, organic quality. This is what sets us apart from others. 

Beyond using organic ingredients, we take it a step further by formulating only waterless skincare products. Waterless, oil-based skincare, does not require us to add preservatives, which can be very harsh for those with sensitive skin. We go above and beyond to completely eliminate known irritants and unnecessary fillers that aren’t safe for our skin. By creating clean, organic skincare products; we are giving your skin a better chance at soothing relief.

It’s important to know how to read product labels and check the ingredient lists to ensure the product is free from ingredients known for causing skin irritation. When in doubt, the Environmental Working Group has helpful information on their website about ingredient and product safety. The Think Dirty app is also helpful for determining the safety of a skincare product. 


The journey to finding products that cater to sensitive skin and eczema can be a daunting task, however, amidst the myriad of options available, organic skincare stands out above the rest. It offers a natural and gentle approach to skincare that prioritizes the health and well-being of individuals with delicate skin. With its emphasis on gentle ingredients, avoidance of harsh chemicals, and commitment to environmental sustainability and ethical standards, organic skincare emerges as the preferred choice for those seeking relief and comfort for their sensitive skin and eczema.
