It’s that time of year again. With the holiday hustle and bustle upon us, here are a few suggestions to keep you healthy so that everyone can make the most of this wonderful time of the year.
In this article, we will give some ideas for custom formulas that help with conditions related to the winter, like Dry Skin, Eczema, and Psoriasis.
A big complaint of the winter months is dry skin or xerosis. Temperature and humidity are some of the factors that can influence the water content of the skin. Without adequate hydration, the skin can dry out and crack. This can cause itching, inflammation, scaling, and rough texture, and can lead to infection. It is common to experience dryness in the winter months when we all spend more time indoors in low-humidity environments.
- One of the most effective ways to treat dry skin is to increase the moisture content. This can be accomplished by using ExScarleto Gel, which contains silicones and pracaxi oil, which is rich in fatty acids and lipids.
- And An excellent active to incorporate is urea, which can be used to increase the water-holding capacity of the skin. It promotes hydration by increasing stratum corneum water uptake and enhances the water-binding capacity. It also has a mild keratolytic action, removing excess keratin in dry skin conditions.
- A formula that uses 20% urea in Exscarleto Gel will be wonderful for dry skin conditions!
Eczema & Psoriasis:
we have XemaTop which is one of our new bases that was specifically designed for the topical delivery of ingredients in formulations used by patients with dry skin conditions, Eczema and Psoriasis. It replenishes the lipids within the skin and helps restore the skin’s barrier, reducing irritation and preventing water loss.
Xematop Nourishes the skin’s structural integrity and the Natural ingredients may improve the appearance of red blotchy skin and help restore the skin’s barrier to prevent water loss.
Xematop is also free from Nuts, Gluten, Soy, Gluten, egg, and dairy.
We use Xematop to compound creams with active ingredients like cyanocobolamine, ketotifen, and we also incorporate steroids like clobetasol to augment the effect of commercially available creams and we see wonderful results.
