Today is World Psoriasis Day, the day that we support the 125 million people living with psoriasis and shine a light on the #GETYOURSKINOUT campaign, which raises positive awareness for psoriasis, campaigns for greater awareness about the disease and gives a voice to many silent sufferers.
We know that many of you reach for more traditional prescription medications to ease your pain, but did you know that there’s a more natural solution at hand and that sea salt is a powerful treatment for skin conditions such as psoriasis? Let’s take a look.
What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a debilitating and chronic condition - believed to be caused by overactive T-cells - that causes skin cells to build up rapidly, creating red scaly patches on the skin. These cells attack healthy skin, triggering an overproduction of new skin cells, which leads to scaling and redness - typically on the elbows, knees, and scalp - and is itchy, miserable and ongoing.
What’s so good about sea salt?
The therapeutic properties of the Dead Sea are well known, but did you know that we can get the healing power of the ocean closer to home?
Salt is a natural trifecta; a potent antihistamine, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory which can help to relieve dry, irritated skin caused by conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.
Our highly concentrated salt is naturally sourced from solar brines in Western Australia and is rich in sea minerals such as potassium, calcium and Magnesium which are known to boost skin hydration levels, and which help relieve itchiness and redness.
These minerals can penetrate deep into the skin, providing long-lasting moisture and improving the health and appearance of the skin. Sea salt is also rich in zinc and bromide; both are anti-inflammatory agents which help to reduce inflammation and soothe skin. It also improves blood circulation, resulting in healthier skin cells and a lower number of skin scales.
It’s easy to see why sea salt-based formulations can be such an effective treatment for psoriasis!
Why is ours so special?
We took our ingredients and formulation a step further when we created our popular and powerful Salt Soothing Gel. We infused our highly concentrated salt with cucumber extract from our own purpose bred cucumbers; our cucumber is high in organic citric acid, which gently exfoliates, moisturises and replenishes the skin to allow absorption of our cooling gel.
This one stop powerhouse will gently exfoliate, cleanse, hydrate and promote the recovery of damaged and irritated skin.
Some amazing testimonials from some of our customers who have found amazing benefits using our Salt Soothing Gel.
"My experience with soothing gel is quite miraculous, I have tried a number of other Eczema soothing cream on the market, while they all had some form of soothing effect, none had the therapeutic effect that soothing gel offered me. I applied the gel twice a day, and mid-way through my second bottle, my condition has stopped flaring and went on to the recovering phase. The gel when applied to skin do sting especially when the condition is active, it does go away after a few minutes. There is also another added benefit of the gel, since it’s non-oil/cream based, it doesn’t stain my cloth as well after applying it to my skin. I would not hesitate to buy soothing gel once it’s available on the shelf. It has worked really well for my skin condition in a very short time frame"
