Hope For Eczema & Psoriasis

A natural breakthrough in the treatment of eczema and psoriasis could offer relief for sufferers.
Skin complaints such as eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis affect one in seven people in the UK, equating to over 8 million sufferers. Common complaints range from mild itching to extreme cases where sufferers have excruciating raw skin and are unable to perform everyday activities. Loss of self-esteem and lack of confidence are the related psychological effects of having a skin complaint, and many outgoing, sociable people become withdrawn as a result of a skin condition, which can literally take over their lives.

There are many existing eczema and psoriasis treatments available on the market, but not all of them are suitable for all people, in all cases. Also, many people are concerned about the long term implications of using steroid based creams, such as hydrocortisone cream, which is known to thin the skin over time and can damage the dermis - the upper layer of the skin - permanently. Medical authorities are recommending stricter guidelines for prescribing antibiotics as bacteria are becoming increasingly resistant, and there is growing concern over many ‘added’ ingredients in cosmetics, such as parabens, which act as a preservative, because their long-term effects are unknown.

But now, Biomedical Research Scientist, Dr. Martin Schiele, and his team have forumlated a new range of treatments called Salcura, which are based on natural plant ingredients and garnered using ‘nanotechnology.’ Nanotechnology works by utilising the minute particles in natural ingredients to increase their surface area and make them more effective - which allows vital repair minerals to be easily absorbed, and the skin to utilise them more rapidly, to reduce healing time.

For people with the most common skin complaints of eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis and uticaria, the first line of treatment is the ‘Intensive’ spray. ‘Intensive’ is a colloidal spray which provides rapid relief from skin irritation such as itching and promotes repair of the skin. It contains a blend of natural plant extracts, omegas, essential oils and moisturisers to combat dryness and act as a natural antiseptic, promoting skin regeneration.

Intensive is unique as it is sprayed directly onto the affected area. Colloidal sprays are the most effective way of transferring the active ingredients to the dermis, epidermis and hypodermis. Beneficially, it does not require rubbing into the skin, ensuring a hygienic application and no further irritation.

Salcura Zeoderm+ is recommended following an Intensive Spray treatment. This naturally based moisturiser is a unique blend of nano minerals and nutrients which deeply moisturise dry, irritated skin and provide relief from itching. Simply apply to the affected area ten minutes after using Intensive Spray, to promote skin repair and reduce discomfort. The active ingredients in Zeoderm+ are ZeomaZ which is formed from natural volcanic micro minerals, linseed and Castor plant oil which together strengthen the elasticity and balance the pH of skin tissue. The active ingredients are already used in hospitals around the world as part of a class 1 wound care treatment regime.

Salcura Intensive and Zeoderm+ can be used by adults and children over 12 months. Ask your pharmacist for further details or visit to find out more.

If you are truly interested in buying skin care products that help the skin, rather than hinder it, look for products that avoid the harmful ingredients. baby eczema
