Eczema, Dermatitis

Aalgo’s rich nutrient and vitamin content acts as an exfoliator and deep cleanser, healing dry, irritated patches. It softens and nourishes the skin while enhancing its natural protective barrier.

There are many forms of Eczema and Dermatitis, so we try to cover them all here.

Adult Eczema

Add 2 heaped tablespoons of Aalgo into a lukewarm bath. Lie back with your neck muscles in the water to completely destress and relax. Have an Aalgo bath every day until clear then once a week thereafter.
To start with shower as little as possible to allow the invisible residue of Aalgo absorb fully into the skin. If unable to bathe, mix some Aalgo with water into a watery cream and apply all over the body, leaving on for about 5/10 minutes and then shower off with a low powered lukewarm shower.

  • The itch will ease within the first week. 
  •  Any area scratched raw will heal within 2-3 weeks.
  • The dry, scaly skin will naturally and gently exfoliate away allowing renewed skin with a soft, supple, and clear appearance within 5 weeks.
Maintenance

Bathe daily until your skin is fully healed. Bathe once a week thereafter to maintain luminous skin.
On stressful days bathe that evening to prevent a breakout. After swimming in a chlorinated pool bathe in Aalgo to prevent a breakout. We would also recommend using the Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar for your body thereafter as this will not irritate your skin during a bath or shower.

Baby & Toddler Eczema

Aalgo is a safe and harmless treatment to use in a baby’s bath from the age of 4 weeks and up. In a baby bath add 1 heaped teaspoon of Aalgo to lukewarm water (do the elbow test to ensure not too hot). With cotton wool or an organic natural sponge gently cover the areas that aren’t in the water, the crease around the ankles, wrists, neck etc. After the bath gently pat your baby dry. 
Once baby is in a big bath add 1 tablespoon to a lukewarm to tepid bath and repeat as a above. When your toddler is strong enough to splash around in the bath on their own try and bathe them for approximately 20mins. Bathe daily until completely clear.

Once clear each child differs, but bathe 3 times a week for 3 weeks and then 1-2 a week thereafter to maintain. See BABY page for detailed advice and instructions

Facial Eczema & Dermatitis

  • 1 heaped teaspoon of Aalgo with hot water to a cream and cool to blood temperature.  
  • Apply with a spatula or the back of the teaspoon 
  • After 2 minutes remove with tepid water and cotton wool. 
  • Rinse with cold water and cotton wool to close pores. 
  • Pat dry with cotton wool 
  • Apply moisturiser

Maintenance:
We would suggest that you use the mask daily for about 2 minutes until skin is clear then three times a week for two weeks and once a week thereafter.

Seborrheic dermatitis

Scalp

  • For the scalp mix to a watery cream apply all through the wet hair and scalp
  • Cover with cling film – keeping behind the ears
  • After 15 minutes wash out with Aalgo Seaweed Shampoo bar – wash and rinse twice.

Apply as so daily until scalp is clear(3-4weeks).
Always wash your hair with Aalgo seaweed shampoo bar and if necessary, use a natural conditioner.

Chest and Back

  • Mix 5 teaspoons of Aalgo with hot water to a cream and cool to blood temperature 
  • Apply with a spatula and then cover with cling film
  • Leave on for 10 minutes 
  • Remove with tepid water and cotton wool 
  • Close pores with cold water and cotton wool 
  • Pat dry with cotton wool 

We would suggest that you do these alternate days until the skin is clear. Always use Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar in your shower or bath. Have an Aalgo bath once every 3 weeks to keep skin clear.

Eczema on the Feet

Mix 2 tablespoons of Aalgo to a thick cream with hot water. Cool to blood temperature and apply liberally to the soles of the feet and heals. Cover loosely with cling film, put on socks leave on overnight. In the morning rinse your feet in a basin of LUKEWARM water and rub the area with your hands, pat dry. IF YOU ARE A DIABETIC do NOT leave on OVERNIGHT only leave on for about half an hour and then rinse off in a basin of water,

If the problem is on both hands and feet, after three days just bathe daily with 2 heaped tablespoons of Aalgo in a lukewarm bath – do this in the evening so that the feet are not going back into socks or shoes until the next day, and the hands are not going back into water until the next day.

Maintenance:
Have an Aalgo bath daily until totally clear, then 1-2 baths per week to keep clear.
When showering, always have a basin with enough water and some Aalgo dissolved in it outside the shower for you to step into after the shower – this will remove all the residue of shampoos, shower gels, soap from our feet which prevent your feet from healing. We would also recommend using the Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar for your body as this will not irritate your feet during a shower.

Legs - Statis dermatitis

Add 2 tablespoons of Aalgo to a LUKEWARM bath.
Bathe for 30mins then pat the skin dry and sit with your legs up.
Put your moisturisers on about an hour later allowing the invisible residue of Aalgo time to be absorbed.

Do this daily until skin is cleared then once a week thereafter. We would also recommend using the Atlantic Seaweed Soap Bar for your body in the bath or shower as this will not irritate your legs moving forward.
