The story behind Lemon-aid Body Butter
“As a mom, I quickly realized the need for something to heal my son’s eczema, especially when everything I tried on him seemed to burn. As a chemist, I decided to be the one to find a solution. A family friend reached out about her son’s unending problems with eczema, which further indicated a need for a child-friendly treatment. After much research, I settled on ingredients and then developed what would become my Lemon-aid Body Butter. ”
