We understand that the idea of a natural remedy for psoriasis raises numerous questions and as such we have endeavored to provide the best and most helpful answers to numerous questions regarding psoriasis in general and our products...
Please note: We would like to remind you that Pso Natura is not a medicine, but a deem-cosmetic with 100% active and organic ingredients.
I have suffered from psoriasis for over 30 years, is the Pso Natura range suitable for me?
Yes, whatever your age and however long you have had psoriasis, Pso Natura® can help relieve symptoms.
Pso Natura is an organic skincare which helps psoriasis and eczema patches/plaques disappear.
The disappearance of your patches, using our Regenerating Complex, will depend on their severity.
Using our Pso Natura®, the time for skin regeneration ranges between 10 days and 8 weeks,
but on average most people are relieved from symptoms after 1 month.
However, we advise that you massage gently with the loofah, since children have delicate skin.
Should I stop my treatment when using Pso Natura?
No. We are not doctors and as such we will never advise nor suggest any changes in your medical prescriptions.
However, any sudden termination of your medical treatment could result in significant regrowth of your plaques and generally deteriorate your skin's condition.
Please keep using your prescribed treatment and consult your medical practitioner and dermatologist if you wish to make any changes.
The Complex and the cream Pso Natura are an anti-psoriasis phyto-care. They are compatible with other medicines.
However, for people undergoing PUVA, we recommend that you wait for your treatment to end before you can start using the Pso Natura Complex, because its application involves exfoliation which could irritate your skin.
You can still use:
- the Rich Restructuring Cream Pso Natura for external care, and
- the Detox & Zen Capsules for internal balance.
Yes, please read the origin of our laboratories and the testimony of our founder, Sylvie Méliet, for more information regarding this question.
Yes, certainly ! All products from our Pso Natura range treat plaque psoriasis.
No, unfortunately, your skin is too irritated to undergo an exfoliation with the loofah; the treatment will sting.
We remind you that the Regenerating Complex is not a medicine, it is a dermo-cosmetic.
Its properties make it an effective treatment against redness and flaking,
but its action affects only the upper layers of the skin. On the other hand,
our Rich Restructuring Cream is certainly an ideal active moisturiser for your skin and would likely help you.
No, unfortunately, your skin is too irritated to undergo exfoliation with our loofah and the treatment would be uncomfortable.
However, we can recommend our Rich Restructuring Cream as an ideal moisturiser for your skin.
We have so far said 'no' to this question before, because logically the action of the loofah cannot reach under the nail-bed.
However, we have received numerous testimonials that have informed us that they have had
excellent results on their nail psoriasis whilst using our product.
Please note that in the case of uncertainty like this, we continue to advise that our product may not work on nail psoriasis.

No, to be truly effective, Pso Natura® must be applied with a loofah. With psoriasis on the pubis there is no problem. On sensitive areas such as the labia or penis, exfoliation with the loofah is, of course, out of question.
Many of our customers have successfully used the Complex Pso Natura® on the face.
The composition of our Pso Natura products will not do any harm.
Clinical tests of facial skin tolerance are very good. However, massage with the loofah should be gentle. Use a gentle patting motion if you feel that your skin is fragile.
We recommend that you always use a moisturising cream on the treated parts of the body or the face.
It will alleviate the after-effects of exfoliation and hydrate the skin, which is always recommended for psoriasis.
You may sometimes notice some small red psoriasis patches which disappear quickly, but this could be a sign that you need to massage more gently.
If you go out in the sun, protect your skin with a good sunscreen as exfoliated skin is considerably more susceptible to sun damage.
Avoid any contact with the eyes. There is no great risk, but the stinging is very unpleasant.
In the event of stinging, rinse generously with water.
Unfortunately not. Pso Natura® produces white foam which stings the eyes.
Moreover, it is necessary to use a loofah sponge (provided) to stimulate the action of Pso Natura®. This is, of course, out of the question for a sensitive area like the eyelids.
No. It would be a mistake to use the loofah in this case. Pso Natura® contains bactericides which are likely to sting. Start by using the loofah in a patting motion, without massaging.
Pso Natura® should decrease the irritation, discouraging you from scratching, thereby soothing your patches.
The use of the loofah is an essential component for a real effective treatment with Pso Natura®. Thus, when the irritation subsides,
you will be able to proceed with the loofah massage.
By not activating "the loofah effect” at the beginning, you will undoubtedly have to wait a little longer for convincing results, but be persistent and have courage!
Don't forget to mosisturise, ideally with our Rich Restructuring Cream Pso Natura.
No, it is not necessary to use soap after the Complex for 2 reasons:
- The active agents in the Complex Pso Natura cleanse the skin; it is unnecessary to do anymore.
- By using the Complex with the loofah, you have exfoliated your skin, making it more sensitive. Do not aggravate it with soap.
Yes, of course ! We absolutely recommend moisturising! Moisturising is an alleviating factor and is always recommended for psoriasis and eczema.
When the skin has just been exfoliated, moisturising it is even more important.
Choose a rich psoriasis cream (except for the face, choose an adapted cream).
Ideally, choose our Rich Restructuring Cream from our Pso Natura range, combined for working in synergy with the Regenerating Complex and gives better results for your psoriasis or eczema.
We recommend that, once you have applied the Regenerating Complex on the loofah and the product starts to foam, massage your skin with
the loofah for approximately 30 seconds so that foam releases the maximum active ingredients.
We advise not to massage for longer time as over exfoliation may irritate your skin.
If you wish, you can leave the foam to act for one minute after the massage, before rinsing it off, allowing your skin to absorb the ingredients.
There is no need to panic !
Many people see changes with their psoriasis or eczema after 3 days in general; and the skin becomes smoother.
1. It does not mean it is all gone, far from it.
2. We have established averages; thus the results depend on the severity of your psoriasis.
If you notice a small change, it is already a good sign; though it is not as you expected. Do not become over-anxious. Give yourself a little time … and do not stress.
As you know, stress is a powerful contributor to psoriasis. Try to remain as relaxed as possible.
The ingredients of the Complex Pso Natura® and the cream are particularly active as the exposure to the skin is only a few minutes per day.
Have confidence and patience and moisturise !
After the psoriasis or eczema traces have disappeared, continue using Pso Natura Complex twice a day for 2 weeks for an in-depth organic treatment.
Carry on for preventative purposes 2-3 times per week, according to your specific condition.
Each case is different, it is up to each individual to evaluate his or her maintenance needs.
It is normal for patches subjected to the powerful effectiveness of Pso Natura Complex to redden initially. The loofah massage stimulates the
circulation of the micro vessels. Your skin will soon turn pink, and eventually start to whiten. (This is the regeneration aspect).
However, you should not reach any stage of irritation. If your skin is very sensitive or you have massaged too vigorously, reconsider your massaging technique.
You may find you have been too brutal in your massage.
Use a moisturising cream which will help to soothe the red psoriasis patches, ideally our Rich Regenerating Cream.
If your skin is irritated and bleeding slightly, suspend the treatment until the irritation is gone, and start again. The bactericidal agents of Pso Natura® Complex will sting on open wounds.
Yes, it can. When you feel it isn't doing its job anymore, it’s time to change. If using the product twice a day, we recommend you change your
loofah every 4 weeks. If you are massaging more vigorously, the loofah will require more frequent changing.
