What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that causes the skin to regenerate more quickly than normal. There are several different types of psoriasis and each person’s experience with the condition is unique. Typically, your skin cells go through a cycle known as cell turnover, starting deep in your skin and slowly rising to the surface. Usually, this takes about a month, but it can take only a few days when you have psoriasis, causing the skin cells to rise too fast and pile up on the surface of your skin. Because of this, people who have psoriasis can have flare-ups that cause the characteristic itchy, scaly skin patches to show up on their skin.

What causes Psoriasis?

Experts aren’t exactly sure what causes someone’s immune system to malfunction this way, but according to leading autoimmune researchers, they believe that both genetics and environmental factors play a role. What they do know is that psoriasis is not contagious and there is no known cure, although choosing products that won’t irritate your skin can make a world of difference and help manage the condition.

Sven's Island remedy for 'Psoriasis'

When selecting skin-care products to treat Psoriasis we recommend you choose moisturisers that have a high oil content over water content, since this will draw more water into the skin and reduce water loss. Ointments usually have the highest oil content over lotions and creams, so they don't generally burn when they're applied to sensitive skin and are very good at sealing in moisture. Our Miracle Manuka skin repair ointment has been scientifically developed to relieve and treat Psoriasis-related conditions.

Miracle Manuka - Skin Repair Ointment

Our Miracle Manuka skin repair ointment is a 100% natural, highly moisturising, therapeutic, skincare treatment that contains powerful anti-inflammatory ingredients that can be used to help soothe and relieve dry, itchy, and inflamed skin, symptoms often associated with psoriasis. 

It is recommended that you seek professional medical advice when dealing with Psoriasis. Always use as directed and if symptoms persist consult your health care practitioner
