No one knows for certain what causes infant eczema but the symptoms can be made worse by a number of elements such as heat, overly dry skin or chemicals in detergents. As the cause of eczema is unknown, it can make treating the symptoms difficult. For many families, harsh emollients and steroid creams are not ideal long term solutions. At Silver Sense we recognised that skin conditions such as eczema and molluscum can be treated naturally with silver fibres.
Silver has been recognised to ease skin conditions for thousands of years due to its antimicrobial properties which soothe the skin and help prevent the spread of bacteria which can cause further infection.
Silver has now been clinically proven to prevent inflammation by naturally calming itchiness and soreness and this precious metal’s healing properties are increasingly recognised and recommended by dermatologists.
Silver Sense clothing is made from cotton rich knitted fabrics which are blended with natural fibres of 99.9% pure silver which are manufactured by the renowned medical textiles company X-Static. The therapeutic antimicrobial properties of these silver fibres can help ease the itchiness of eczema and other skin conditions and soothe broken and irritated skin.
Silver Sense clothing also helps to prevent bacteria from building up on already broken skin which can cause further soreness and infection. As silver is a 100% natural product this means it doesn’t contain any chemicals which may harm children’s sensitive skin.
