About the Seal of Acceptance™
Since 2008 the Seal has been the most trusted mark in eczema products.
For the millions of people who live with eczema – and even more with sensitive skin – the search for personal care and household products can be triggering, in every sense of the word. The Seal empowers you to find products that are suitable for you and your family. When you see the Seal, you can be sure the product is free from ingredients on the Ecz-clusion List and has undergone rigorous testing and scientific review.
NEA knows eczema. We know that products that touch your skin (and even those that don’t) can cause you to flare. With the Seal, we’ve done the vetting for you. For a product to obtain the Seal, it must meet the strict standards established by our Scientific Oversight Committee – a panel of leading dermatologists, allergists and eczema experts – and undergo testing for sensitivity, irritation and toxicity, as well as a review of ingredients and formulation data.
Eczema is a chronic condition without a known cure (yet), which means at-home management with suitable products is key. Also the scientific understanding of eczema is complex and evolving all the time. Our Scientific Oversight Committee keeps up with the latest research so that you don’t have to.
Our goal is not only to help you find eczema-friendly products, it’s also to drive manufacturers to do better, creating products that are free of known allergens and irritants. Find personal care and household products with the Seal in the Eczema Product Directory – and check back regularly for new additions. Keep in mind that eczema is different for everyone and a product that works for one may not work for another, or even for the same person over time.
