All Terrain Company: Kids Eczema Cream Review

I recently admitted that I am a 'lotion addict' and that I am pretty much always open to trying out a new lotion, particularly if it is natural and has the potential to help with eczema.  When presented with the opportunity to test out a product from the All Terrain Company I knew I wanted to try out the Kids Ezema Cream.  We've had some success with colloidial oatmeal products, and its the feature ingredient in the Kids Eczema Cream.

Other key ingredients include Aloe,  Shea Butter, Eucalyptus and Tea Tree, definitely a soothing and moisturizing mix.  It's stinky though; not overly so, and the scent fades fast, but I would be remiss if I didn't tell you there was a noticable odour.  With ingredients like eucalyptus and tea tree however, scentless isn't particularly an option.

The Kids Eczema Cream is thick, but it blends into the skin easily and leaves the skin soft, cool and silky, not sticky or sweaty.  I tried it out on the boys eczema and it seemed to noticeably smooth and soften his poor inflamed skin.  I also used the Kids Eczema Cream on the bumps on the back of my arms and was surprised to find that my arms too felt quite lovely the following morning.  Needless to say, the bottle is emptying very quickly!

As a Company, the All Terrain Company strives to provide "Natural Remedies for Outdoor Enthusiasts", their product packaging is all made from recycled, recyclable or biodegradable materials and they donate 10% of their product cost to an Environmental Charity (you choose one of six) and have numerous environmental programs and partners.  At $7.99 for a 2oz bottle of Kids Eczema Cream, you're donating $0.80 cents to charity, which is not much, but we all know the little things add up.

I've truly enjoyed the All Terrain Company's Kids Eczema Cream; its all natural and left both our skin both smoother and softer.  I rate it a 4.5/5.

  1. you have to be careful with tea tree, even though it is a soothing product, it can cause eczemic reactions.

  6. Hi Amber,
    Your phrase "lotion addict" caught me. I'm TOTALLY a lotion addict and it goes against me trying to be sustainable since now we have about 17 partly used bottles of lotions in all sizes lying around and I still buy more when I see a new one! It's all for me, though. I haven't tried anything on our little boy since he had a reaction to Aveeno hypo-allergenic cream all over once. Luckily, his eczema is pretty mild and totally under control.
    I'm from Vancouver, but moved to central BC recently. Nice to meet you, BC blogger!

  10. Amber,
    I have been looking for a treatment for eczema. Thanks so much for the post and for the reviews. Are the products very natural? I do like a more natural approach to things, but I will take your word about these products, and hey, I like the fact that I will be donated needed money. Thanks again.
