Psoriasis vs. Eczema
Psoriasis and Eczema are not the same. They shouldn’t be treated as such!
I cannot tell you how many times people have called me for our Eczema Body Butter when, in fact, they had Psoriasis!
While both skin ailments have symptoms in common, they have wholly different “relief” needs. Psoriasis is an often uncomfortable condition in which the immune system attacks the skin. As cells turn over more quickly, the itchy, silvery plaque stacks up on heavily reddened skin.
Green Tea is an antioxidant powerhouse that helps neutralize the free radicals that cause the swelling and inflammation of Psoriasis. Green Tea includes beta carotene, vitamins C and E and selenium, that can prevent damage to your skin cells. When the inflammatory process persists and becomes chronic, free radicals are permanently produced and have the capacity to cause tissue destruction. Antioxidants work by significantly slowing or preventing the oxidative – or damage from oxygen – process caused by free radicals that can lead to cell dysfunction.
Green Tea’s naturally produced EGCG, flavonoids and polyphenols also help reduce inflammation that can lead to lesions. They positively influence the balance between synthesis and degradation of extra-cellular cartilage.
Our Psoriasis Body Butter has NO MINERAL OIL/PETROLEUM, ALCOHOL, PARABENS, PHATHALATES or FRAGRANCE (the very thing commercial products get wrong)!
Our Psoriasis Body Butter will launch in March.
