Eczema is a chronic skin condition affecting both children and adults, that comes and goes like a yo-yo. Its symptoms itching, redness and inflammation can be alleviated with long-term regimens of moisturizers and prescription corticosteroids. Unfortunately, corticosteroids drugs are limited to short term usage due to risks of harmful side effects. This means that, there is no real treatment for eczema, and that non-therapeutic and non-clinical topical approaches should be considered.
The skin protects our body by many ways: as the physical barrier to the environment and toxicants, as the antimicrobial barrier by producing protective chemicals. By working together with the immune system, the skin is home for strictly nonpathogenic, occasionally pathogenic and pathogenic bacteria, fungi, viruses and other microbes (microbiota). BTW, gut and skin microbiota are equally important in training our immune system and to protecting us from harmful pathogenic microorganisms.
The causes of eczema are unknown. However, factors such as the environment, loss of barrier function play important roles. Genetic mutations are also to consider, as exemplified by the protein filaggrin. Intact filaggrin and its subproducts are necessary for normal skin function, by participating in barrier protection, as sunscreens and moisturizers. Furthermore, filaggrin subproducts make the skin environment, hostile to harmful pathogenic bacteria by maintaining an acidic pH. Conversely, mutated and dysfunctional filaggrin is linked to skin dryness, weakened barrier protection, increased susceptibility to allergens and other irritants, which leads to unwanted immune reactions, infections and inflammation.
To help restore and maintain healthy looking skin, Moza Naturals™ Organic Eczema Cream was created as an all plant-based & all-natural skin nutraceutical. It is enriched with moisturizers to help fighting skin dryness, antioxidants to help with inflammation, prebiotics for the microbiota, and other plant nutrients to help with skin barrier function, and to diminish skin irritation.

Stretch marks. One of the things that most people hate having on their bodies. Especially, the stretch marks that come from bringing new life into this world. The worst thing about them is that they are practically unavoidable.They can occur from pregnancy, weight loss, rapid muscle growth, diseases, etc.
In the last 40 years it is well known that, due to structural and functional differences, adult and infant skins moisturize utilizing distinct mechanisms.
