Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that commonly presents itself in the form of scaling and redness of the skin. Psoriasis occurs when there is an intensified production of the skin, accumulating in white patches on the knee, elbow and scalp areas.
The severity of psoriasis varies greatly from person to person. For some, it’s just a minor irritation, while for others it can majorly affect their quality of life.
We created our psoriasis cream to enhance scale removal and facilitate epidermal re-hydration. Humectants, antioxidants and gentle keratolytic agents complement the emollient/moisturising action, helping to normalise the appearance, structure and function of the skin. Made from powerful natural ingredients, including Manuka Honey, Calendula, Gotu Kola extract, as well as Avocado Oil & Jojoba Oil.
