Atopy and Natural Cosmetics (Includes Giveaway)

Beauty | 20.10.2014 | Katja Kokko


Atopy symptoms often worsen with the cooling of the weather, but there are some great, unscented natural products for treating atopic skin.

I’ve met dozens of atopy sufferers who have been stuck for years, using one medicinal cream after other, only to finally find relief in natural cosmetics. Many have been able to reduce or even discontinue their use of medicinal creams.

You can find my treatment and product recommendations for atopic skin at Please also share your personal stories about atopy, and your tips for treating it.


I am also giving away some of the products featured in the pictures, including a 2-in-1 cleansing milk from Lavera’s Basis Sensitive range, as well as a moisturizing lotion, and an oily cream from the Neutral range, all perfect for treating atopic skin and eczema.

To take part, simply tell us what difference natural cosmetics have made to your skin. Have you received help from natural products in treating acne, rosacea, or atopy? What about other benefits? The giveaway ends on October 26th 2014. Only comments to this post are considered in the giveaway, but feel free to share your thoughts at Ellit, too!
