While sometimes it feels like the world is burning and falling apart all around us, when it comes to gummy vitamins, we’re truly living in the best of times. (We’ll take it where we can get it). With CBD gummies practically falling from the skies, and ingredients getting more exciting and intriguing, we’re definitely ascending to the Peak Gummy Vitamin realms.
So when Embody announced their third gummy, our minds were both blown away and not surprised at all that we are living in a day and age where we finally have the world’s First Eczema Gummy! Honestly, it felt like it was made for us. (Thanks, Embody Babes! 😘)
It’s no secret that we love Embody, and their mission to be the First Of any particular kind of gummy. First Retinol Gummy? ✅ First Eczema Gummy? ✅✅ Embody’s firm belief that skin care begins from the inside out is one that we also embrace, and we love when a brand aligns with our own values.
Most importantly, we personally have suffered from persistent and often severe eczema for most of our adulthood (on our faces, which is particularly painful), so we are desperate for this type of help in our lives.
Honestly, between how much eczema hurts and how unsightly it can be (swollen eyelids, skin peeling in the sensitive corners of our lips) we have really struggled to find help, when steroid creams aren’t recommended for these areas, nor are they recommended for long term use).
We’ll take anything to help!
So what’s inside?
Here are the carefully chosen ingredients designed that all add up to Eczema Relief!
15 mcg of Vitamin D3 (75% DV)
It might be surprising to find Vitamin D here. We’ve all been hearing a lot about Vitamin D over the past year and its benefits to healthy immune system support. But here’s a fun fact we learned from the Embody website: about a quarter of Americans are Vitamin D deficient AND that Vitamin D deficiency in the bloodstream has been linked to higher incidence of eczema.
Curiouser and Curiouser!
10 mg of MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane)
We’re not that familiar with MSM (Mainstream Media? We kid!). We learned that it’s a sulfur derivative that works to reduce inflammation and oxidative stress. There’s some research about its ability to improve skin health, and like Vitamin D, potentially support your immune system.
This checks a lot of boxes for us, so we’re excited to work with this one!
110 mg of Evening Primrose Oil
Well how lovely does that sound? Already our skin feels soothed. But don’t let the pretty sound fool you. Evening Primrose is a heavy hitter fatty acid, renowned for soothing inflammation, and traditionally used for everything from skin to breast pain. Basically, why haven’t we been taking this before??
We’re super excited for this skin-soothing cocktail that Embody has brewed up here and plopped into another adorable gummy.
To be clear, Embody is not claiming they can cure eczema here or anything. (As people who have been through multiple dermatologists and steroid creams over the years– who can??)
But they are doing the best they can to provide relief and hopefully curb persistent and often incredibly uncomfortable flare ups. It’s a goal worth striving for!
Our parched, flaky skin can’t wait for this gummy, so we’ll be updating this review with our full thoughts as soon as we get our mitts on it!
