Salcura conducted analysis recently into the correlation between the sale of their products designed for eczema prone skin and the incidence of eczema across the UK, with some interesting findings.
They identified that the areas of the UK where they send the most products for eczema are all hard water areas, whilst the areas they deliver the fewest eczema products to are all soft water areas.
Dr Martin Schiele, Bio-Medical Research Scientist and founder of Salcura, said: "From a scientific point of view the idea that hard water will have an effect on eczema makes sense on paper, and I have always believed that it formed part of a wider mix of external factors affecting the prevalence of eczema.
"Where hard water exists, an often invisible layer of minerals deposit on the skin after bathing or washing. Where the skin barrier function is deficient, these alkali deposits can irritate skin and cause inflammation and itching in the same way that other allergens such as chlorine and pollens cause the same sort of problems."
Dr Schiele added: "However, these sales figures clearly illustrate that customers living in areas of hard water in the UK are buying more products to treat eczema, than those living in areas of soft water."
