Harvey supports trial to examine if water softeners can prevent eczema in babies
A new study supported by Harvey will for the first time investigate if using water softeners can reduce the risk of infants getting eczema.
The study of Softened Water for Eczema Prevention (SOFTER) is being led by researchers at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust using our own twin-cylinder water softeners.
It’s the first time that water softeners will be installed into the homes of babies at high risk of having eczema as part of a trial. This includes babies who have a parent or sibling with eczema, asthma or hay fever.
