Chelsea, growing up half the year in Trinidad with relatives and half the year in Washington, DC, was always exposed to women in her family making a salve or a balm to cure an ailment. When she developed eczema at eight years old, it took her a long time, between the over the counter products, the prescription steroids and changing her diet, to finally go back to her Caribbean roots and make her own lotions and potions to get her eczema under control. When Teddy developed eczema at eight, the same age Chelsea was when her eczema was triggered, Teddy challenged his mom. Unlike Chelsea who had a moderate version of eczema, Teddy's eczema was everywhere. Elbows. Knees. Ears. Eyes. Esophagus. Everywhere. The over the counter soaps and creams Chelsea initially bought to treat Teddy's eczema made Teddy’s skin worse. Dry. Dehydrated and Ashy.
So Teddy challenged Chelsea. "Make something for me mommy," he said. "You make stuff for yourself all the time." After about ten months of formulations and experimenting, Chelsea unlocked the right combination of treating Teddy's eczema with an oil cleanser, a water base cleanser and a body butter. It worked so well friends started asking for it. Chelsea quickly realized that they had something that could be turned into a business. Thus, Teddy's Eczema Bar was born. A skincare line formulated for eczema prone skin. With three easy steps, Teddy's Eczema Bar takes the guess work out of how to handle a flare up.
Incorporating Chelsea's passion for urban farming and Teddy's love of the environment and the planet, they knew that their products had to be plant based, cruelty free and eco friendly. Having experienced the bland looking products marketed for eczema, they also knew that their products had to be pretty. This cumulated into Teddy's Eczema Bar's three basic brand themes - ugly. beautiful. planet. Teddy's Eczema Bar's mission is simple: Eczema is ugly. You are beautiful! The eco friendly products you buy to treat your eczema should be as beautiful as you.
