Hi Ladies,

I am a single mother of two beautiful little ladies. I am looking into starting a skin care line for children with eczema. I've cured my eight year old, and almost completely cured my four year Old's eczema using natural remedies. I wanted some advice on how to start this skin care line. I was thinking of starting a blog to get the word out on the product.

I initially started using the steroid creams provided by the doctors but found that we were in the hospital every month with an infection. In addition, at three weeks old my daughter almost died from a serious skin infection. I was devastated. Who knew that a small infection could have spiraled into a near death experience?

Anyway, I'm looking to other mothers to find out how to properly start this little business. I don't want to skip any steps or skimp out on the small details. Please share any information that you wonderful women have. Anything would be greatly appreciated.


All The best!

You really need to work out how you are going to sell the product. Are you going to sell them online and ship them from your home? What price are you going to sell them for? Are you going to charge extra for postage?
You will need to build a website, design packaging that complies with regulations, have stock so customer aren't waiting for their orders, set up a bank account that can take online payments and at least get a patent on it just to start with.
You need to make sure there is nothing like it in the world, not just where you are. Getting a new product into the market takes years of hard work and research.

Just a heads up though, eczema isn't cured, it's managed. Everyone has different triggers as well. For some people it's foods and for others it's products. You will need to be very careful with your wording as your product may not work from everyone.
