Description

KIMOVI Cream With Salt is a therapeutic cream designed to help with skin that has become dry, irritated, or damaged.

It avoids the common irritants that are frequently found in other skincare products. These include fragrances, parabens, and colorants that can strip skin of oils and do further damage to problem skin.

Available here in the UK, KIMOVI Cream With Salt contains two key ingredients that assist with soothing and treating damaged skin. Firstly, KIVOMI products contain Kigelia Africana. This is an African fruit with the power to nurture and restructure the skin, restoring integrity and providing lasting relief to people suffering from skin problems.

The cream combines this fruit with Sülbeck Thermal Salt. This is similar to Dead Sea Salt, which is renowned the world over for its skin healing properties.

High concentrations of Sülbeck Thermal Salt (28%) in this cream provide a cleansing and disinfectant effect. It helps to clear the skin of harmful bacteria and assists in preventing infection.

Whether your skin is simply dry, delicate, damaged by the sun, or excessively itchy, you will find that this cream is able to soothe and stabilise it. It can also help with skin that has become scaly, as in some dry skin conditions.

Applying this cream regularly will reduce the urge to scratch, which can make some skin conditions worse and even lead to infection.

KIMOVI Cream With Salt reviews say that the cream is quickly absorbed and that the moisture and nutrients it brings to the skin will enhance its natural ability to heal itself.

Directions

KIMOVI Cream With Salt can be used as a daily treatment all over the body and on parts of the face (avoid the eye area). It can be used safely by both children and adults but please take note of the precautions below.

This cream is safe to use in combination with other skin treatments in the KIMOVI range.

Precautions

Because of its high salt content, KIMOVI Cream With Salt may initially sting the skin, especially if there are open wounds. This is usually nothing to be concerned about.

The cream should always be stored away from children and used externally only. Contact with the eyes should be avoided.

In case of accidental contact with the eyes, use plenty of clean water to flush it out.

Before using this cream, check the list of ingredients for potential allergies. In the event of an unwanted skin reaction, stop using it. Consult your doctor, pharmacist, or skin specialist if symptoms persist.

Side Effects

The use of KIMOVI Cream With Salt is not associated with any side effects. No known interactions with other medicinal products exist.

Scientific Research

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts did not find any clinical data on the use of KIMOVI cream with salt in people with psoriasis or other dry skin conditions. However, the product contains glycerin which is found naturally in the skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers, thereby helping hydrating and moisturising the skin (1). In dry skin conditions, including psoriasis, water loss from the upper skin layer is linked to a reduced skin barrier function, which may be worsening the disease symptoms (2).

Furthermore, the product also contains salt and fruit extracts from the African plant, Kigelia Africana. Kigelia africana is reported to be widely used as a natural treatment (3) and although many of its traditional medicinal uses have not been investigated scientifically, it is presumed to have antimicrobial, antioxidant and wound healing properties. One of its suggested bioactive substances is verminoside, which has been reported to have antiinflammatory properties in immune cells in laboratory models (4).

Laboratory studies have also shown Kigelia africana extracts to have antibacterial activities against a range of test bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus (5). In psoriatic plaques, colonisation with the bacteria S. aureus may be increased (6). One study reported that S. aureus was present in 15 of 25 of the psoriatic plaques that were investigated of which one third of the bacteria was toxigenic, and that the disease severity was linked to a higher enterotoxin production (7).

The product also contains high concentrations of salt. Daily salt baths for 20 minutes have been shown to benefit patients with severe psoriasis after a period of 3 weeks (8). However, in that study patients benefited more from Dead Sea salt than of common salt. Dead Sea treatments are considered especially effective in psoriasis due to the combination of the special characteristics of the UV radiation in the Dead Sea and the Dead Sea water balneotherapy (bathing) (9), and has also been reported to significantly increase quality of life of patients with psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis for up to 3 months after finishing the climatotherapy (10). HelloSkin’s experts have not been not been able to find any clinical data regarding the specific salt used in the KIMOVI products.
