Here, steps in Mommy aka Compounding Pharmacist. I began to research eczema and natural treatments and began designing what is now known as the Goody-Goody Grapefruit lotion bar. Lotion bars are free of preservatives which tend to irritate the already sensitive skin. What they do contain is shea butter and olive oil to moisturize and soothe the skin, candelilla wax to create a protective barrier and grapefruit peel essential oil to reduce inflammation and prevent infection. Since using this after her baths, she has been eczema free for the last five years.
Ultimately, I started receiving requests from family and friends for lotion bars and then began creating more products such as lip balms and bug repellent. They were all so popular that my brother started calling me Kosmatology (my maiden name is Kosma) and joked I should start a skin care line. So, here we are two years later producing an organic, preservative-free skin care line that is safe for the whole family. Once you try our products, you will wonder why you ever used anything else.
