The Rich Restructuring Cream is based on wild Carapa procera (like the Regenerating Complex) and natural ingredients, especially chosen to reinforce and boost the skin's regeneration against psoriasis and eczema. Skin suffering from psoriasis or eczema needs a high quality moisturiser. Carapa procera brings this fatty element to the cream and leaves your...
Rich and moisturizing, it is dedicated to the treatment of dry to very dry skin, with scales or flakes, related for example to psoriasis. It combines a fatty acid concentration with an emollient texture and leaves the skin smooth and silky. See details
A psoriasis affected skin is a suffering skin. A moisturizing cream is therefore an essential step to relieve psoriasis and take care of your skin.
In cases of psoriasis, the skin is fragile, thinned, dry or very dry. Moreover, it usually causes itchiness. Psoriasis itself provokes skin dehydration: The affected skin is renewed more quickly which induces dryness of the skin. A study involving 70 Korean patients * shows that the dryness of psoriatic lesions appears to be correlated with the overall severity of the disease. (* Clinical & Experimental Dermatology, Volume 27 Issue 2 Page 147 - March 2002).
The moisturizer should be as rich as possible (thus fat) and frequently applied (at least twice a day, after treatment with the Complex). Hydration for psoriasis sufferers is therefore part of the treatment, rather than being purely cosmetic.
Moisturising the skin daily slows down the skin renewal by 50%. The skin’s protection barrier against external stresses is renewed and the epidermis regains some of its elasticity and suppleness.
Symptoms of a psoriatic skin are quite similar visually to hydration disorder:
- Thickened stratum corneaum (top layer of the epidermis)
- A rougher appearance of the skin
- Disruption of the transformation process of profilaggrin into filaggrin
- Dermal inflammation.
In addition, certain psoriasis treatments (keratolytic treatments for example) also dry out the skin further.
The hydration of Psoriasis is a must to:
- Regulate keratinisation and desquamation;
- Maintain the integrity of the skin barrier and prevent further damage;
- Regulate the dermal inflammatory process;
- Fight against dryness caused by specific treatments (Vit A, calcipotriol, PUVA ....);
- Moisturise the skin, and the psoriasis symptoms.
