For people with Psoriasis
HelloSkin’s experts could not find clinical data on the use of Salcura Bioskin Zeroderm Repair Moisturiser in people with psoriasis. However, the product contains both glycerin and urea.
Glycerin is found naturally in skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers, thereby helping hydrating and moisturising the skin (1). Urea is an important component of the epidermis which also partly works through similar properties.
For people with Eczema
HelloSkin’s experts could not find clinical data on the use of Salcura Bioskin Zeroderm Repair Moisturiser on eczematous skin. However, the product contains both glycerin and urea.
Topical urea has in atopic dermatitis been shown to reduce disease severity by about 20% after 42 days when combined in an emollient (either 5% or 10%) (2). Also, in eczematous skin urea has been shown to improve hydration of the upper skin layer, the water binding capacity and reduce the water loss across the skin surface (3).
Both urea and glycerin are known to help moisturising the skin through their water binding properties (1). In patients with atopic dermatitis, a glycerin cream compared with a glycerin free placebo was shown to hydrate stratum corneum and restore epidermal barrier function during the treatment when treated twice daily for 4 weeks (4).
NB! This product contains a variety of natural ingredient: Linseed Oil (Linum usitatissimum seed oil), Starflower Essential Oil (Borago officinalis leaf extract), Castor Oil (Ricinus communis seed oil), Jojoba Essential Oil (Simmondsia chinesis seed oil), Lavender Essential Oil (Lavendula augustifolia oil), Rose Geranium Essential Oil (Pelargonium graveolens oil), Damask Rose Flower Water (Rosa damascena flower water), geraniol, citronollol, that can cause adverse reactions in people with atopic dermatitis due to a higher risk of sensitivity.
