For Sensitive or Inflamed Skin
Many people tell us they have sensitive skin. The question is...sensitive to what?
Some people truly have thin or a fine-textured sensitive skin. Since it reacts quickly to both heat and cold, sensitive skin sunburns and windburns easily. It is often dry, delicate and prone to allergic reactions.
Other people have skin that is simply sensitive to its environment. Seasonal temperature and humidity changes, very hot water, detergent soaps, synthetic fragrances and colors, preservatives, alcohol (used on the skin), and other common artificial additives cause irritation, which leads to red, blotchy, and itchy skin.
One customer with "sensitive skin" had great results with our natural Goat Milk soap and so decided to try some of the other bars she had bought for her husband. She had no problems with any of our natural soaps and wrote us a note saying... "I guess I am sensitive to every soap but yours!"
IRRITATED or INFLAMED SKIN--ECZEMA & PSORIASIS
Eczema is a term for a chronic condition in which the skin becomes inflamed or irritated. The affected area is very dry, almost always itchy with a rash and can appear thickened or scaly. Read more about Eczema . . .
Psoriasis is an inflammatory disorder that begins deep within the skin due to changes in the normal process of "skin cell turnover." There are numerous types of psoriasis and the symptoms vary from mild to severe, depending on the type. Read more about Psoriasis . . .
We suggest that people with chronic skin problems begin with soaps that contain no essential oils. Soaps like the Goat Milk Oatmeal, Carrot & Honey, Marsh Mallow Chickweed or any of the other soaps listed below that say “no added scent.” Some people have also found the Seabuckthorn and
Neem and Tea Tree soaps to be very helpful.
Sea Buckthorn has been used to treat skin disorders in Eastern medicine for centuries. It is also believed to be a natural remedy to help treat periodic flare-ups of psoriasis as well as eczema.
Natural Soaps Especially Good for Inflamed Skin
Seabuckthorn oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help strengthen capillaries and promote healing by encouraging tissue regeneration. In addition to the healing seabuckthorn oil we add other natural ingredients like turmeric, neem, tea tree oil and licorice root, that have been shown to be helpful as topical remedies to soothe inflammatory skin problems
like eczema, psoriasis and rosacea.
