    Recently got this product all the way from Australia (currently live in Canada). So far it works great but I do have some concerns with the ingredients. It contains Benzalkonium Chloride which is know to be a severe skin irritant, especially those with eczema. I feel unsure whether this is good or bad?

    Hi Shayne,
    The benzalkonium chloride is present in the product as an antiseptic agent in a low concentration. Benzalkonium chloride in high concentrations can irritate the skin. At the concentration used in the QV Flare Up Wash, the benzalkonium chloride kills the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus, which is typically found in high concentrations on the skin of patients with atopic eczema. Flare ups in eczema may be attributed to secondary infection of the eczema lesions by S.aureus, and subsequently, killing the bacteria results in an improvement in the skin's condition.

    Kind Regards,
    The Ego Team.

    This would be by far one of the best products I have used for my grand son who has eczema. He is no trouble to get to the shower when this product is on offer. He loves the frothy feel and can easily spread it over his body without the help of an adult. Thankyou for making his bath time more enjoyable instead of it becoming a battle field.

    The best product in summer, to relieve my teenagers sensitive skin and helps to sooth the skin when first signs of eczema.
