Global Eczema Therapy Study

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a growing international issue with 20% of Australian children displaying clinical symptoms at 12 months of age. Previous studies have demonstrated improvements in eczema symptoms from wearing next-to-skin superfine Merino garments.

This investment seeks to confirm the benefits of superfine Merino garments to infant eczema sufferers across climactic zones and across skin types. The data will support broad marketing and promotion of the use of superfine Merino wool base-layer garments for eczema suffers in the global market.
