Thank you for your patience in awaiting my testimonial. It may appear long-winded because I had much factual information to convey.
Briefly, most of my adult life I have been under the care of several dermatologists for two ongoing skin conditions; facial rosacea and a scalp disease.
In 1992 I was diagnosed with Folliculitis De Calvans, an autoimmune disease of the scalp. The treating doctor recommended a prescription that revealed a pregnant woman's tummy on each capsule with an X over each tummy. As was customary at the time, the doctor warned every female patient that should they become pregnant while taking this toxic drug, detrimental side effects could impair their fetus. In my desperation to combat this disease, I ingested those toxic capsules.
Soon after I ingested these drugs and during a follow up appointment, I shared with my dermatologist that my cheek felt numb. Instantly, he took me off that drug.
Thirty years have passed. Folliculitis De Calvans has resulted in alopecia (hair loss that extends across the top of my scalp).
A few weeks ago I had a follow up dermatologist appointment. Upon examining my facial skin, the doctor expressed surprise at the condition of my facial rosacea and inquired what I was using and for how long. I shared with him that I had recently discovered Grahams Natural Alternatives, a company located in Australia that produces natural health based skin products.
I also shared with the doctor that I have been applying Grahams' natural skin cleanser and the rosacea cream to my face daily. The improvement has been considerable; my skin appears clean and healthy looking, the pores have opened up and the rosacea redness does not present 'so angry looking'.
In conclusion, I am delighted to report that my skin is now being well managed by Grahams Natural Alternatives, plus, I have no worries of developing detrimental side effects to toxic medication.
I just wanted to thank you I have just started trying your rosacea cream for the past 6 months I have had problems with a rosacea flare up with pustules and the regular antibiotic therapy and rosex gel was not helpful so my friend saw some of your cream and got it for me and within a week the pustules have improved my face is not hurting day and night I know it is not a cure for my rosacea but it has helped me no end so I just wanted to let you know that for me it is a miracle
I have to say how pleased I am with Grahams Rosacea Cream. I have suffered with it for more years than I can remember. I have been to all sorts of Drs, Chemists & all sorts of Beauty Company's... but have never had such relief & softness in such a short time with the use of your product. A friend sent it to me from Hervey Bay & he is a man!!! The money I have spent !!!! I am 75yrs but was a champ/swimmer in pools then married to a Ironman (ocean) and never ever looked after my skin as I should, even falling asleep under a sun/ray lamp in my twenties....stupid! ...I have paid the price. I am very very pleased thus far...Thank-you & I have just purchased more of your products. Helen Wentworth Falls,N.S.W
Hi there Geoff, Very rare that any company would take the time or care to follow-up with such personalised care information, regardless of it being a personal email or auto response. I was actually planning to reach out to you to share my story (I dont do social media for a number of reasons, primarily I prefer to fly under the radar personally and professionally) and thank you for the what you have done to meticulously develop products for people with problematic skin care. Cutting through a life long story of bouts of dermatitis (contact and hive) and over bursts of facial acne rosacea - I was struck with a very severe round of acne rosacea end of 2018-early 2019. Again, cutting through a long story of consultations (natural and western medicine), I was passing through Chemist Warehouse early 2019 and stopped to read your family story on your product packaging - something I would not normally do and especially as I was looking for a body wash (was not aware at the time you manufactured one). Was so impressed, story resonate with me, I bought the Rosacea Cream and within 2 days my skin was healing, within 10 days acne (combined with diet) was gone. I have used the product daily now for 12 months, love, love love it and whilst I probably dont have need to use it currently I love the calming and anti-red/inflammatory affect of it. If I feel heat, I apply it and it is gone immediately. It changed my life, my outlook and well being. Suffice to say I wanted to try body wash etc., and could only find the body soap (which I also love, love, love) which has led me on line to look for body wash/other products which retail are not carrying. I have shared the product details with colleagues and people I also know with problematic skin. Thank you for these beautiful products and for the care and kindness you extend to your customers. Kind regards, Megan
Hi Geoff, Re our conversation this morning Re the Rosacea Cream. My Daughter Shirley finds the the product is so good for her Rosacea that it is clearing up the problem in the last few days she is so pleased with the product even her GP was so surprised with her face the way it is clearing up her problem. She said she would recommend the product to any one that has Rosacea. It has cleared up the problem in her eyes as well she has been using it on her face. She saw her eye consultant the other day he was so pleased her eyes was so much better. She said she can recommend what it has done for her to all your customers that has Rosacea. Thank you Geoff. Kind Regards Shirley M
