When you take skincare as seriously as we do, we imagine that you are always searching for the next generation of game-changing skincare products that can restore it to a trouble-free, healthy state. It sounds so simple, but giving the skin what it wants is a complex problem that demands a lot of science in its creation and especially so when you need it to provide instant relief and keep your skin moist and hydrated most of the day (or night).
Skin Repair Lotion
Lotion for Body, Legs, Hands & Feet
What is Skin-Repair good for: We have incorporated our research into our Skin-Repair product and we find that apart from being a repair moisturiser, it is a highly effective skin lotion and a natural remedy that gives the skin what it wants, soothing and repairing itchy and dry skin and damaged, irritated and hard skin on the body (except the face – please consult with our office for specific advice) and it’s great for all sorts of niggly skin complaints that for one reason or another won’t get better. It is especially beneficial treatment when applied at night and it will work as you sleep.
Mrs Jones from Gloucestershire writes – “I write to say thanks for your marvellous Skin-Repair product. I have had a diabetic ulcer on the sole of my foot for the last three years. I attended my doctor and the nurse who dressed it regularly – and I tried all sorts of creams and medication, but to no effect. Then last week, of my own volition, I applied some of your Skin-Repair. In a week, my foot ulcer has healed. I am so thankful to you for this lovely product. Kind regards.”
What makes it so special: When the skins natural barrier that is damaged by exposure to cold weather, water, soaps and other chemicals it causes breakdown in barrier function that results in moisture loss. This opens the door to penetration of irritants, which can cause dryness, redness, scaling, itching and irritation. So, if you have to work in conditions that cause these problems, or if your skin is aged, then its best to feed and care for it with clean, organic ingredients that will replenish and repair and it absorbs almost immediately, so you never feel sticky.
Our research at West of Scotland and Aberdeen University tested the ability of our formula to eradicate several bacteria, with all being obtained from patients with hospital-acquired infections. This included Acinetobacter baumannii AB5 an opportunistic pathogen, has a high incidence among immunocompromised individuals, particularly those who have experienced a prolonged hospital stay.
What do we use and why: First, we start with soft Scottish water from our lochs and streams, which is then further purified to remove any microscopic traces of contaminants. Then we add Passion Seed and Grapeseed oil that are both cold-pressed and organic. Glycine (a natural amino acid) helps maintain the skin’s hydration, texture, resilience, and a blend of plant-based (university tested) therapeutic essential oils, which effectively and hygienically kill the bad bacteria on the skin such as those that prevent wounds from healing. We find that this can be especially beneficial to calm itching that comes sometimes with varicose veins. And of course, if you are diabetic and have to look after your feet, then this may be a product to keep them healthy.
DO NOT: apply near eyes, or on mucus membranes or in the face. Not suitable for children. Apply generally two to three times daily. If you have problem skin on the face, then please get in touch and we will see if there may be something that after consultation, we can formulate specially for you (firstname.lastname@example.org)
