Skin Salve products are ideal for people with dry, itchy, flaky skin, one of the symptoms of eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. They are free from harmful irritants such as alcohols, steroids and fragrances.
This steroid-free, natural simple skin care program combats itchy skin which can be associated with certain skin disorders and helps prevent future eczema flare-ups.
In the mid 90s, two pioneering UK-based Doctors conducted trials on patients trying to determine the causes of dry patches on skin and spontaneous eczema flare ups,a problem that faces over 10% of the world’s population and is rising.Their objective was to create a complete eczema treatment
They started their research, aided by leading skin care specialists and chemists to understand the real issues surrounding very common skin complaints that usually first present themselves as dry, flaky skin.
They found that the most effective way to treat dry skin is to first reduce the skin’s exposure to chemicals commonly found in laundry powder, soap and moisturisers, products that are used by eczema sufferers hoping to find relief.
The Doctors designed the unique range of simple skin care products that are fragrance and irritant free, including laundry powder,soap and a range of moisturisers.
Dry skin sufferers could then help their bodies’ own defences to treat eczema and then would assist the natural ability of the skin’s own reconstruction, creating the foundation for healthy, great looking skin.
Further research was conducted into creating an easy to use deep penetrating natural moisturiser to use on the move for sore stressed skin.
Our new complete range of Dermasalve creams are the only available in the UK that have ‘no known sensitisers’ an ideal aide to combat dry flaky skin and greatly assist as an eczema treatment.
