Description:

Grahams Natural Diabetic Foot Cream has been scientifically formulated with Clinically proven ingredients, specifically to complement and nurture diabetic skin.

About Diabetic Foot Syndrome and foot care:

Poorly controlled diabetes leads to changes in the blood vessels, circulation, nerves and structure of skin and connective tissue that results in

  • Limited joint mobility and/or
  • Changes in posture and co-ordination and/or
  • Decreased or altered nerves sensitivity and/or
  • Altered (reduced /impaired) blood flow

As a result the surface parts of the body, most particularly the feet are substantially more susceptible to the set of symptoms called Diabetic Foot Syndrome, that includes

  • Physical deformation
  • Greater susceptibility the sheer, friction and pressure
  • Skin Cracking and

Consequential calluses and other injuries, may go undetected because of a reduced feeling in your feet; deep infections can result in part, due to decreased circulation. This happens more often when someone has been living with diabetes for some time.

We have analysed specific considerations of diabetic skin including:

Diabetic skin typically contains an over-abundance of some Natural Moisturising Factors such as glycerol (sugar alcohol) and polyols (sugar replacement), skin hydration ingredients (alcoholic sugars) typically found in normal moisturisers. 

We have excluded sugars and glycerol along with other ingredients typically found in normal moisturisers that are already in excess in those with Diabetic Foot Syndrome. 

We have included natural ingredients like Nettle leaf, essential fatty acids and potent antioxidants such as Pomegranate seed extract that are missing in diabetic skin.

We have also included ingredients that are antibacterial such as Nettle leaf,  Chamomile and Red clover extracts.

    Grahams Natural Diabetic Foot cream is intended as a “daily use” cream so as to ensure care and maintenance of diabetic skin, but to also ensure daily checking by diabetics of potential diabetic skin issues.

    Key benefits:

    • Humectants: draw water from formulation to increase skin hydration. Urea, Sodium PCA, Betaine, Hyaluronic acid and Lactic acid.
    • Lubricating and Emollient oils and waxes: Help protect and support the structure and function of skin and help to stimulate normal skin metabolism. Balance of essential and non-essential fatty acids from a range of botanical sources. Including castor seed oil, Medium chain triglycerides, Isopropyl myristate, Linseed oil.
    • Antioxidants: Diabetes affected skin has high levels of lipid peroxidation and decrease antioxidant status (dry skin). Pomegranate, Nettle leaf, Calendula and red clover are used as antioxidants. This provides both lipid and water-soluble antioxidant activity.
    • Biostatic: helps in reduction of bacterial reproduction of diabetic affected skin. Coconut oil, Benzyl alcohol, Lactic acid, Nettle, Chamomile and Red Clover extracts.

    Benefits

    The cream is formulated to be easily applied, non greasy and to provide penetrating moisture and a very soft, low friction powder-soft finish, that helps to prevent friction and physical stresses on the skin surface.
