It all started when my younger boy came home from a family vacation with severely dry chapped cheeks. What we thought was flushed cheeks turned out to be a case of windburn - a type of eczema caused by exposure to harsh environments. I tried all kinds of remedies to cure his windburn and discovered the miracle of using pure natural plant oils. Out of frustration, I decided to apply pure cold-pressed coconut oil on his cheeks and bathe him in oat baths just to see 'if it will work'. Lo-and-behold, the redness actually went down at the end of the day! I was simply amazed. Natural ingredients work, just that there isn't enough of such pure skincare products for children out there.
