Lush soap for eczema

I've always used E45 wash and similar stuff with having eczema but I've heard that Lush soap is natural whilst smelling nice and I was wondering if it would be OK for my skin. Does anyone here with eczema/sensitive skin use it?

The assistant in Lush told me that their products are made with eczema sufferers in mind, however my daughter has eczema and Lush soap gave her an awful flare up. I stick to liquid soaps now that don't contain MI or SLS and she's usually ok with those.

I find the lush stuff smells quite strong and that's one thing I tend to avoid for my daughter's eczema. La roche posay do a wash that's quite good for it, though, if you're looking for something a bit nicer than the ones that feel quite basic.

I really like the honey one. It doesn't make my skin sting and is very moisturising.

I'd be careful. Don't assume that just because a product is "natural" that makes it safe for touchy skin. Nettles are natural but you wouldn't rub them all over an eczema sufferer.

I have mildly sensitive skin and my limited experience of Lush products (two soaps and a bath bomb) has been disastrous. Itchy, red skin for days after use. I won't be touching any of it again. No doubt some of their products would be fine for me but it's all way too expensive to try to find out.
