Grahams Rosacea Cream
Rosacea is a chronic vascular disorder affecting the facial skin and eyes. Symptoms, of varying severity, can include; a predisposition to reactive flushing; redness; pronounced skin sensitivity; telangiectasia (appearance of red blood vessels on the skin surface), papules and/or pustules. Rosacea is often characterized by a chronic cycle of remission and flare. The facial skin of patients with rosacea if often hyperirritable.
The underlying causes and the progression of rosacea have not yet been firmly established. Recent findings implicate the immune system as well as vascular abnormalities, genetic influences and infectious factors to play a role. Some other data indicates that gastro-intestinal symptoms associated with rosacea may be caused by Helicobacter pylori infection; as eradication of Helicobacter pylori can (but is not always) associated with improvements in cutaneous symptoms of rosacea. Several common skin care ingredients have been identified as rosacea triggering agents; these include astringents (ethanol), alcohol, witch hazel, fragrance, menthol, peppermint and eucalyptus oil.
Grahams Rosacea Cream is a 100% natural, and very mild, cream for the relief of rosacea. This "complex cream" has been formulated using a range of biocompatible lipids conducive to supplementation of emollient and structural lipids in the stratum corneum. These include complex esters, naturally occurring hydrocarbons and both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, over wide range of chain lengths.
Can be used as a (rinse off) cleanser as well as soothing (leave on) treatment moisturizer. For best results apply generously to areas affected by and susceptible to rosacea at least twice daily. Follow up with your usual skincare regime.
