Our Antibiotics class of Skin Care medications contain topical antibiotic ointments containing antibiotics used for treating skin infections.
Topical antibiotics prevent spread of bacteria and allow the infected skin to heal.
Our Anti-parasitic/Scabies class of Infections contain topical medications used to treat infections with the parasitic scabies mite that burrows into the skin and causes irritation. <br/><br/>
Our Natural Therapy class of Skin Care products contains oral and topical products for moisturising, hydrating, nourishing and protecting skin to help manage the effects of aging and sun damage.
The environment, particularly exposure to UV from the sun, contributes to skin damage and together with the natural aging process causes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Free radicals are unstable and highly reactive chemicals produced by oxidation, which is a chemical reaction that occurs in the body as a result of normal metabolism or due to environmental factors such as UV radiation or pollution and cigarette smoke. Free radicals can cause cell damage and cell death and are thought to contribute to skin damage. Antioxidants are stable compounds that neutralise free radicals and therefore, protect against the damage they can cause. Some antioxidants like glutathione occur naturally in the body, they can also be obtained from the diet in a range of fruits and vegetables, such as Vitamin E, the most common fat-soluble antioxidant and Vitamin C, the most common water-soluble antioxidant.
The visible signs of aging and the impact of the environment on the skin include dryness, fine lines and wrinkles and dullness of complexion. These signs are a reflection of changes in the epidermis and dermis layers of the skin due to environmental damage, loss of collagen and elastin, and loss of moisture, resulting in reduced elasticity and thinning of the skin.
Topical skin products are available as a solid bar and as a lotion that can be used to cleanse and moisturise dry and sensitive skin, and are particularly helpful for skin conditions like dermatitis and eczema.
