A condition often characterized by a mixture of dry and oily, inflamed and sensitive or damaged and scarred areas of skin. Careful cleansing with our mild and gentle products is useful. Applying our Colloidal Silver 10 spray as a toner provides an additional antimicrobial treatment.

Silver-MSM Creams and Lotions are excellent moisturizers and provide the necessary nourishment for improving these skin conditions. All natural and chemical free ingredients make them suitable for even the most sensitive skin areas.

Silver-MSM Lotion and Dry Skin Lotion are non-greasy, non-occlusive (do not block the skin’s pores), sink into the skin very quickly and are well absorbed.
The successful treatment of eczema and dermatitis can be very difficult because there are so many different causes and they are often not very well understood. Severe itching will cause people to start scratching, which can damage the skin and open it up to infection. In fact in 95% of all cases there is an underlying secondary bacterial or fungal infection of the skin present. This infection in turn becomes another reason to scratch and a vicious cycle can develop. Our products are designed to reduce the original inflammation and itchiness as well as addressing any secondary infection that may be present. MSM is an anti-allergenic substance that also has detoxifying effects. Silver is broadspectrum antimicrobial and promotes healing.
Molluscum contagiosum (MC) is a viral infection of the skin or occasionally of the mucous
membranes, sometimes called water warts. It is caused by a DNA poxvirus called the molluscum
contagiosum virus (MCV). MCV has no nonhuman-animal reservoir (infecting primarily humans, though equids can rarely be infected). The virus that causes molluscum contagiosum is spread from person to person by touching the affected skin. The virus may also be spread by touching a surface with the virus on it, such as a towel, clothing, or toys. [ via wikipedia ]
Maintaining good moisture levels through application of healthy vegetable oils rich in natural Essential Fatty Acids (EFA’s) is one cornerstone of dealing with the soreness and itchiness of skin prone to psoriasis. The others are natural Vitamin A (retinoic acid), MSM and some form of antimicrobial treatment with either silver or essential oils or both. Our products are designed to help facilitate and maintain healthy skin renewal and deliver the necessary building blocks to do so.
Generally inflamed skin reacts quickly to the calming effect of MSM. MSM not only reduces inflammation but also has important detoxifying properties. Silver is anti-microbial and has also been shown to be of benefit in healing. In acute cases, use Silver-MSM 25 (liquid) first and let air dry before using Silver-MSM Skin Care products. Using our foam baths are the best way of exposing the whole of the body to the effects of Silver and MSM.
The redness, pimples, pustules and papules associated with rosacea are often treated with courses of oral and or topical antibiotics, which can cause long term health problems in some people. Steroids can actually cause rosacea and steroidal skin treatments may aggravate it. Often rosacea also co-exists with acne vulgaris and/or seborrhoeic dermatitis, which makes treatment even more difficult. For many years now our Silver-MSM products have offered a natural, alternative approach and they are tolerated very well by most people with this condition. Please have a look at the Acne, Acne Rosacea and Seborrhoeic Dermatitis Categories for a wider range of products that may be useful to you.

Silver has been used for many years now as the first choice of treatment in many specialist burns clinics around the world with reducing pain, speeding up recovery times and resulting in less scaring.

The combination of silver and MSM is the optimal choice when addressing these skin conditions.

Our Silver-MSM Seb Derm range contains naturally strong antifungal compounds for both cleansing and moisturizing the scalp and skin.

Counteracting inflammation and itching, the use of preparations containing steroids can often be reduced and sometimes be discontinued altogether.
