Pure & Essential Minerals has developed a safe, effective and natural skin care treatment to soothe eczema and dry skin conditions in both children and adults
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/04/2013 -- A recent study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), reports an increase in eczema and other skin allergies amongst children under age 18 years. The study shows that skin allergies increased from 7.4% between 1997–1999 to 12.5% between 2009–2011, to 1 in 8 children.
Eczema refers to a group of conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated and is almost always itchy. Affected areas usually appear very dry, thickened, or scaly.
The exact cause of this condition is unknown. Some people may suffer "flare-ups" of the itchy rash in response to certain materials or substances. For some, exposure to some household products like soap or detergent, or coming into contact with animal dander may cause an outbreak.
The standard medical eczema treatment is using topical steroid creams. While the occasional use of topical steroids may not be harmful, prolonged use or the use of oral steroids may lead to a suppression of the immune system. A new class of FDA-approved drugs called Topical Immunomodulators (TIMs) work by reducing inflammation and other symptoms. While TIMs may have fewer side effects than topical steroid creams, it has been theorized that they may lead to an increased risk of skin cancer.
It is because the unsatisfactory nature of the current treatment of skin allergies, both in effectiveness and safety, that Pure & Essential Minerals developed Hemp Seed Healing Balm, a unique natural and organic formula that safely and effectively addresses skin conditions while producing no harmful side effects.
