How Pure Water Can Treat Eczema

27 June 2013

Eczema is a skin condition which is usually first noticed in babies and young children. In many cases, young children grow out of the condition, however many will continue to suffer from eczema throughout their teenage and adult lives.

Eczema can be hereditary, but environmental factors have been associated with the disorder. 


Hard water has been attributed to eczema for many years. A study conducted by Nottingham University revealed that people living in areas of the UK receiving hard water were more likely to suffer from the condition.

Hard water contains high levels of calcium content which may contribute to skin problems, including eczema. High calcium carbonate content acts as an irritant has been known to exacerbate existing eczema disorders. Exposure to hard water and aggressive chemicals in soaps, such as sodium hydroxide will continue to irritate raw skin. Soduim hydroxide is a powerful sensitiser and it is the most common contributing factor for eczema sufferers.

Research has revealed that hard soap and shampoo does not work well in hard water, causing people to use larger quantities. Overusing non-natural products in hard water has been suggested to aggravate the skin of eczema sufferers.
