The skin balm is powered by a naturally occurring immune serum that has skin regeneration properties validated by scientists as published by The Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York which hosts one of the most prestigious dermatology services in the world.
The immune serum boosts the production by the proliferating fibroblasts cells --the stem cells of the skin in the basal layer of the skin's epidermis and in the hair follicles-- of all the cells, structures, molecules and tissues that restores the capacity of the skin to retain water and remain strengthened and healthy.

If you are suffering the torment of dry, scaly rashes; raw bleeding sores and rough, cracked and painful skin, often with a continuous itchy feel that drives you crazy, you probably know these skin conditions result from a combination of genetic traits that make the skin barrier weak and dry and inflammatory processes that involve the upper dermis and epidermis of the skin (the cutis).
Inflammation is further aggravated by inflammatory agents, such as bacterial, fungal, viral, parasitic, autoimmune, allergic, hormonal and/or malignant inflammatory agents. The most common of these dry skin disorders include eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis.
Dermatitis is further classified into contact dermatitis (allergic or non allergic), atopic dermatitis and seborrheic dermatitis.
When eczema develops, the cell in the epidermis (keratinocytes) distend from one another and fluid is accumulated there amongst in a process known as spongiosis.
In chronic forms of eczema or dermatitis the main change is a thickening of the epidermis, which leads to itching, roughening and scaling of the skin surface. The loss of water from the skin leads to inflammation of the horny layer, which later result in cracked and sore skin.
Non allergic contact dermatitis occurs in response to skin irritants, such as acids, alkalis, oils, detergents and solvents.
Allergic contact dermatitis occurs as a result of sensitization to repeated exposure to an antigen which is the medical term for a substance capable of inducing a specific immune response and capable of reacting with the chemical products released by immune cell because of that response. Allergic contact dermatitis appears in skin areas that were in direct contact with the antigen that elicit the immune response.
Atopic dermatitis, or eczema, which affects mainly infants, is characterized by sensitization of the skin to a wide range of common antigens.
Seborrheic dermatitis affects the scalp and other hairy areas, the face, and the parts of the body able to flex (the backs of the knees and the insides of the armpits, elbows and groin) and results from yeast or bacteria induced inflammation.
Most people suffer from dandruff which is a mild form of seborrheic dermatitis.
A genuine sensitive or irritant reaction can be caused by sun, wind, rough handling and even water. Redness, itching, swelling and stinging are common and rapid responses, but the same trigger may not trigger the same reaction another time. However, sensitive reactions can lead to fully blown allergies. Years of chronic irritation weakens the skin and cause significant aging.
An allergic reaction occurs each time the skin comes in contact with the trigger. Perfumes, preservatives, colorings, detergents and surfactants, and sunscreens such as PABA are all common cosmetic allergens. Responses vary; blistering, cracking, oozing, scaling and redness are all common. Allergies are individual and idiosyncratic - it does not follow that if you react to one agent, you'll react to them all.
Hypo-allergenic and sensitive skin-care products exclude ingredients most likely to irritate, while including agents to calm and strengthen the skin against environmental attacks. If you have sensitive skin avoid creams containing AHAs, which are notorious irritants. US dermatologist Albert Kligman used glycolic acid to devise a test for irritable skin, which is now used the world over.
Most of the skin or mucosal membrane diseases, or disorders, are the result of inflammation.
The immune serum also dissolves damaged and abnormal tissues by the action of enzymes; stimulate skin rejuvenation; and act as a strong antioxidant.
Our formulation also includes ROSE HIP OIL, a biological source of both trans retinoic acid (Vitamin A) and essential fatty acids that act in synergy with HYALURONIC ACID, a strong moisturizer to restore balance to the skin barrier.
BIOSKINBALM also uses a carbohydrate moisture retainer called PENTAVITIN that rescues, repairs and restores dry, irritated, sensitive skin.
The product is a gentle staple for dry skin and an alternative to the awful cortisone & steroid components found in most chemical eczema and psoriasis remedies. These steroid-based therapies usually come with their own set of unpleasant secondary effects (click to read more about topical steroid side effects), however BIOSKINBALM is completely natural and helps your skin heal itself.
It is also an alternative to synthetic, chemical saturated products that are on the market and do not comprise any of the toxic or harsh chemical components commonly found in mainstream skin ‘care’ and even in specialty ‘health’ skin care articles.
The complete ingredient list is:
● (1) Water;
● (2) Rose Hip Seed Oil;
● (3) the immune serum: Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates, the richest biological ingredient known for healthy skin, produced by a living being to function as a biological antimicrobial, an inflammatory-moderator, an antioxidant, a moisturizer & a stimulator of scarless healing & skin rejuvenation;
● (4) Olive Oil emulsifier, surfactant, and squalene by-products that replenish the lipid content of the skin blocking the penetration of allergens and contaminants and working as antioxidants;
● (5) Seaweed Extract, a rich supply of oligoelements that are needed for cellular development,
● (6) Hyaluronic Acid moisturizer a naturally occuring skin element capable of holding more water than any other known hydrator;
● (7) Chamomile for inflammatory skin conditions. It is wonderful for sensitive skin, and helpful in dermatitis;
● (8) Pentavitin™, Saccharide Isomerate, a carbohydrate complex similar to that present in the stratum corneum of the skin that holds water by strongly binding water to keratin;
● (9) A preservative made only with the following botanical extracts in minute quantities: Origanum Vulgare (Oregano) Leaf Extract (and) Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Extract (and) Cinnamomum Zeylanicum (Cinnamon) Bark Extract (and) Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract (and) Lavandula Augustifolia (Lavender) Flower Extract (and) Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Extract (and) Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Leaf Extract (and) Hydrastis Canadensis (Golden Seal) Root Extract (and) Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract; and nothing else.
Helix Aspersa Müller glycoconjugates is an immune serum produced within the immune cells of snails of the Helix Aspersa Müller species. They secrete a fluid watery substance to protect its delicate unprotected skin from the sun’s rays, and to keep its skin moist and hydrated.
This restorative secretion not only shields the snail’s skin from damage, it actually helps the snail regenerate its own shell if it is ever crushed or broken. It also replaces and recovers the functional capacity of its tentacles, eyes and mouth if bitten by birds. The fluid also has antimicrobial properties to help protect the snail from bacteria. In consequence, snails never suffer from skin infections – can you imagine that?
Due to the remarkable similarity between the structure of human and snail tissues, snail secretion is 100% consistent with human skin. That implies that there are no allergic reactions, no burning, no redness – BIOSKINBALM is absolutely safe to use, even on infants. This affinity also implies that the benefits the snail receives from its own secretion can now be enjoyed by YOU.
It is irrefutable that environmental factors undermine skin integrity. In our offices and homes, the arid atmosphere generated by air-conditioning and central heating leaches moisture from the skin, encouraging a dry, taut and potentially sensitive surface. Outside, further threats await. Cold winds dehydrate and stress the skin, especially by contrast - going straight from a warm room into icy air gives skin scant time to adjust its temperature and circulation setting. Atmospheric pollution creates a further risk by triggering the action of free radicals destructive molecules within the skin itself.
Adaptogen is a name given to describe those gifts found in Nature that have the ability to produce suitable adjustments in our body, at a cellular level, and work by helping us shield the body from various kinds of stresses while promoting the body’s own self-rejuvenation mechanism. These agents support the body’s immune system thus controlling bodily processes and helping us advance towards genuine health.
An adaptogen is a biological remedy that helps support our natural resistance to illness and prevent stress from taking a toll on our nervous, hormonal and immune systems as well as boost our body's energy levels. Adaptogens tend to normalize body functions, and when the task is completed, they are disposed of or absorbed back into the system with no secondary effects nor damage to the body, as the "allopathic" or medical drugs do.
Today, thanks to modern advances, we are able to change our natural surroundings virtually at will. Air conditioning, airplanes, central heating, pesticides, cars, indoor lighting, polyester, preservatives, petroleum and plastics are just a part of the innumerable amenities we are capable of controlling. Yet, however useful or life-supporting these goods may appear in the short-term, in the long-run they are a double-edged sword, bringing us undesirable secondary effects.
Some of the most obvious of these are already apparent, environmental side effects such as smog, the thinning ozone layer, the greenhouse effect and the various heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides and other chemicals that are finding their way into our bloodstream. These aftermaths of "The good life" are now representing a major obstacle for the adaptation and survival of several species and bio-systems that are found here, on planet Earth. The only way to survive such aggressive changes is to change ourselves and to adjust to a quickly changing and tense environment.
As a culture we seem focused on incapacitating our body’s innate ability to adapt by constantly forcing the environment to meet our every whim instead of us being the ones that change. In Darwinian terms, this is not a good prognostic for our species.
Rene Dubois, the humanist and biologist said, "This state of adaptedness gives a false sense of security because it doesn’t have a lasting value and does not prepare for the future."
In consequence, it appears that the best course for survival is to increase our adaptability to our surroundings, not the other way around. This means that, instead of entrusting our health to chemicals or isolates from natural elements, it may be a better option to strengthen our body, our immune system, and ourselves while developing a better appreciation of Nature's gifts instead of abusing whatever new extract we ingeniously take from nature, this is where "adaptogens" can be of great significance.
Fortunately for us there are a group of biological remedies available that can help the body adjust better to its environment, whether that environment be drenched with harmful chemicals or simply defined by quick change. These gifts of Nature are known as "adaptogens".
Having to confront the harsh everyday contaminants isn’t easy on your skin nor can it be achieved by any one single action. That is why BIOSKINBALM wants to help you deal with these stress agents by offering an ample range of biochemical factors that include a natural biological immune serum.
Scientific investigation has discovered the snail’s serum is packed with trace elements (Copper, Zinc, Iron & Calcium), co-enzymes, proteins, peptides, enzymes and complex sulfate acidic glyco (sugar) molecules, which act in combination with other biological ingredients incorporated into the balm helping to:
● regulate dilation of capillaries that would otherwise induce red blotches on the skin
● stimulate an orderly synthesis of fibrin which shields the delicate internal walls of the blood vessels and promotes unhindered blood flow
● stimulate the synthesis of new healthy capillaries
● support the production of antimicrobial peptides on the skin to kill parasites, microbes, fungi and virus, without inducing any bacterial resistance
● enhance inter- and intracellular communication thus controlling the orderly rejuvenation, turnover and regeneration of all the structural components of healthy skin
● regulate connective tissue breakdown by inhibiting or balancing enzymes
lessen skin inflammation through the use of antioxidants and enzymatic decomposition of flawed proteins thereby reinforcing the immune system
● trigger the production of skin cells and the healing of wounds leaving no aberrant scars
safely reinforce your body’s natural ability to heal itself
● intensively moisturize and organically hydrate the skin from within by maintaining water and boosting the ability your body has to produce the water holding molecules within the skin matrix, the "carboHydrate" glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans that give skin elasticity, strength, resilience and the capacity to withstand pressure and over-stretching.
A water quota of no less than a healthy 60 per cent gives skin its smooth, plump, translucent quality, while it bathes cells with nutrients and keeps them soft and functional.
A moisturizer's most basic job is to supplement the skin's "Natural Moisture Factor (NMF)" which is the name given to a cocktail of moisture-attracting humectants and preservatives that are naturally in our skin. They should help preserve fluid in the skin's upper layers and prevent losses which hasten aging.
As environmental factors such as sunlight, central heating, wind, cold and pollution all encourage moisture loss, state-of-the-art creams are designed to buffer external aggression by reinforcing the skin's own barrier mechanisms.
In young, healthy skin natural oils and friendly flora preserve the slightly acidic mantle that keeps the barrier function of the outer layer of the skin intact. Overlapping dead skin cells form a scaly, water-resistant seal against dehydration. As skin ages, however, natural oil production drops and the skin surface becomes drier and less moisture-retentive. Surface scales roughen and gaps appear in the barrier, through which moisture can escape. As cell turnover also slows with aging, it takes longer for replacement cells to reach the surface and repair breaches. A mal- functioning surface barrier leaves cells in the skin's lower layers vulnerable to damage. So, we have designed the skin balm we offer to you to help reinforce the stratum corneum or outer layer of the skin.
Rose Hip Seed Oil is from the seeds of a native wild rose that prospers in southern Chile. It has been used for hundreds of years in South America for its remarkable healing, moisturizing and rejuvenating properties. It helps cell regeneration, boosts levels of collagen and elastin skin fibers, producing a smoother and stronger skin.
Rose Hip oil contains high levels of essential fatty acids: oleic, linoleic, and linolenic, which help keep healthy skin. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and nourishes the skin with lipids that are needed to reinforce the outer skin barrier and shield the body from the incorporation of allergens and toxins. Rose hip oil is also a natural source of trans-retinoic acid (a biological promoter of vitamin A) and acts as a keratolityc which eliminates dead cells and accelerates skin renovation, as do trans-retinoic-acid in prescription drugs but without any of their secondary effects.
It also collaborates to reduce pigmentation, raised scars and stretch marks by promoting healthy skin rejuvenation - it is effective even on old scars. When applied daily to the skin it shields it from free radical damage, related to the harmful influences of solar rays, weather and aging.
Rose Hip oil was first investigated in 1983 by a team of scientists from the Faculty of Chemistry and Pharmacology at the University of Concepcion in Chile. They evaluated the oil's impact on the skin’s rejuvenation mechanism. During the two-year study, the oil was applied to 180 patients with surgical, injury and post-burn scars, and also to a group suffering from premature aging. It was discovered that Rose Hip Oil produced an effective regenerative action on the skin, helping to reduce scars and wrinkles, preventing advancement of premature aging, and regaining lost color and tone.
Hyaluronic Acid is contained naturally in the snail secretion but we add an extra amount into our BIOSKINBALM formula because of its capacity to hold a thousand times its weight in water and thus deeply enhance the moisturizing effects of the balm. The balm also contains Pentavitin™, a patented, highly effective moisture retainer and regulator. Its composition is very similar to that of the natural carbohydrate fraction found in the stratum corneum of the human skin. Pentavitin™ is a highly concentrated aqueous solution and the result of a carefully planned process of isomerization of the plant derivative, D-glucose. Due to its biological construction and composition, Pentavitin™ acts as a highly effective moisture regulator derivating in long lasting water retention. Pentavitin™ gets its moisture-retention properties by binding itself to free amino groups of lysine found in the keratin of the stratum corneum. This exceptional type of binding results in a unique substantivity and affinity with the skin. Once bound to the skin's surface Pentavitin™ cannot be washed off easily. Pentavitin™ is effective for shielding dry skin from typical symptoms such as fragility, dryness and roughness. When you apply the balm, you will experience a level of skin stability and repair like with no other product you have ever tried. BIOSKINBALM protects you against the effects of solar rays, pollution, allergens and microbes. The regenerative properties found in BIOSKINBALM will reduce the presence of Rosacea, rashes, eczema, fine lines, scars, dry skin, acne, dermatitis, actinic keratosis, stretch marks, skin roughness and keloid scarring. When you apply BIOSKINBALM as a routine skin care regimen, this product will not only make your skin more beautiful, but it may also help relieve your worst skin conditions. BIOSKINBALM is the only natural skin care product that is NOT a concoction of chemical nor pharmaceutical elements, but rather a cream based on an ingredient found in Nature and produced by a living creature. Its compound is expressly created to moisturize, protect, and – here’s the crucial part – regenerate its skin. For hundreds and hundreds of years people in Asia, Africa and South America have employed extracts from plants, frog skin or snail secretions to heal wounds, burns and skin infections. Recent advances in medical science have started to unfold the magic of these traditional techniques. Discoveries of naturally active peptides and proteins in snail body and mucins (Kubota Y et al., 1985) in frog skin (Zasloff, 1987) and in plants (Broekaert et al., 1995) prove the beneficial influence of these natural treatments. The bioactive peptides are extremely effective against a wide range of microbes and are therefore named antimicrobial peptides. Staphylococcus Aureus and other bacteria are present in 90% of eczema cases. Bacteria adheres more quickly to skin that is inflamed, worsening the eczema episode because of secretions known as super-antigens. These allergy-inducing elements stimulate the immune cells in the skin causing them to produce substances that further aggravate inflammation. Controlling bacteria on the skin can help regulate the eczema. BIOSKINBALM is a 100% natural, nourishing and healing, super soothing, hydrating, biological skin treatment balm. Designed to leave skin feeling calmed, balanced, deeply hydrated and velvety soft.

Mammals are born with antimicrobial peptides deployed as a crucial barrier against microbial infection (Gallo and Nizet, 2003). Their skin is a protective cover between internal organs and the outside surroundings. It is menaced daily by hundreds and hundreds of possible pathogens, a host of toxins and physical stress. In order to face these challenges, skin epithelium functions as a natural barrier and has an active immunological role in the verification of microbes as well as in the production of cytokines and defensive molecules such as antimicrobial peptides.
The number of reports demonstrating the existence and secretion of antimicrobial peptides in human skin is increasing and reflects the importance of these peptides in skin conservation and treatment.
The fact that the snail serum contains glycoproteins that eliminate bacteria and also naturally promotes the expression of endogenous antimicrobial peptides that fight infection has been acknowledged for years. Researchers have struggled to duplicate its bioactive molecules in the laboratory (through biosynthesis). This is a promising new territory for research, developing effective drugs and patenting them, but bringing a medication to clinical experimentation is time consuming and expensive. It is reported that it takes $300 million to bring a drug to market. This cost covers everything from discovery, analysis, production and clinical experimentation. This procedure may also take 10 or more years to accomplish.
The antibiotic factor of the snail’s mucus is a glycoprotein whose molecular weight (MW) is about 160,000. Comp Biochem Physiol C. 1985; 82(2):345-8. It eliminates both gram-positive (Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus) and gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa), but only in their growing states. Studies of the shape of bacteria affected by the glycoprotein in the secretions have shown that it elongates the bodies of E. coli by 3 to 7 times, breaking the surface of Staphylococcus aureus and causing the cytoplamic membranes to cave in.
By blocking the microbial passage to the blood stream, this biological complex allows your immune system to heal the damage while in an environment similar to that in which a broken bone heals inside the body, thus avoiding costly scar treatments.
The balm helps to alleviate the symptoms of dryness, acne, irritation, rosacea, dermatitis, and eczema, and prevents infections of the skin without the pitfalls of chemical antibiotics or the secondary effects of irritating chemicals commonly employed in topical skin products.
It takes time to restore the damaged skin barrier which prevents environmental factors from entering the skin and it takes time to restore the capacity of the skin to hold in water. In the meantime you might need to also apply corticosteroids or other medicines to alleviate itching.
BIOSKINBALM is a long term balanced skin treatment that strengthens your skin and normalizes it for proper performance of all its defense and immune functions.
Use BIOSKINBALM twice a day to greatly reduce symptoms and IMPROVE THE TEXTURE AND appearance of skin.BIOSKINBALM is an integral and balanced skin treatment guaranteed to work for you.
Simply apply BIOSKINBALM gently with your fingertips. Wait ten minutes for the healthful ingredients in this biological skin treatment to reach your skin cells and then apply your makeup as usual. It’s that easy.
BIOSKINBALM is the ideal daily restorative healing, soothing and comforting balm for a blemish-free complexion – even for the most delicate skin.

Fortunately, by chance a snail farm in Chile realized that snail handlers had exceptionally smooth hands, and any cuts, blemishes or abrasions to their hands had healed quickly and with no scars. Around the same time a doctor in Spain had observed that snails produced mucous when exposed to ionizing radiation (X ray and gamma radiation employed for cancer radiotheraphy) and that it protected them from deteriorating effects.
His interest led him to investigate the effects of the secretion on human skin, research what was in it and do clinical tests. He confirmed that the substance yielded a scar-less healing of wounds, cuts, blemishes and recovered the skin’s health after damage done by cancer radiation therapies. He also discovered that the substance healed the skin even of chemical burns. The creation of a balm and the experience of hundreds and hundreds of patients with skin conditions has inspired us to persist in our quest to make this product available to you.
An in depth investigation conducted in Spain, in 2000 and 2001, studied the influences of snail mucins in topical treatment of radiodermatitis, and demonstrated the existence of antioxidants and the activity of the fibroblast growth factor in the snail secretion and its wonderful results to prevent and treat radiodermatitis when applied to people undergoing ionizing radiation treatment for the management of cancerous cells.
Results showed the existence of antioxidant effects in the snail's fluid: enzymatic as in superoxide dismutase (SOD), conjugation enzymes like glutathione-S-transferase and low molecular weight antioxidants. The antioxidant properties of the fluid can inhibit or weaken the appearance of free radicals which can end the domino effect of spreading cellular reactions.
The study also showed, with no doubt, the presence of Fibroblast Growth Factor (FGB) in properties with a cell shielding function. The secretion boosts cellular function and the innate rejuvenating processes of the skin matrix, making skin healthier and stronger. At the same time, the degradation of flawed proteins brought about by the enzymes in the secretion gives an additional support to the antioxidants by shielding the skin from inflammatory agents. And moisture holding molecules in the secretion return skin moisture, alleviating dry skin brought on by ionizing radiation.
Snail secretions include sulfated glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), present as strongly acidic protein-free polysaccharides.
GAGs-binding and the control of a large number of ligands and receptors are crucial intermediaries of normal cell and tumor cell functionality. They can oversee behaviors such as their growth, differentiation, expansion, and adhesion. The specific composition of GAG chains and their binding proteins influence tumor cell growth, metastasis, and cancer progression. GAGs such as heparan sulfate, heparin, dermatan sulfate, chondroitin sulfate and hyaluronic acid serve as vital biological response modifiers by functioning as (1) stabilizers, cofactors, and/or co-receptors for growth factors, cytokines, and chemokines; (2) controllers of enzyme activity; (3) signaling molecules in answer to cellular damages, such as wound healing, infection, and tumorigenesis; (4) targets for bacterial, viral, and parasitic virulence factors for adherence, invasion, and immune system; (5) controllers of neurite outgrowth; and (6) anti-inflammatory agent that limits oxidative corruption after tissue injury.
In the snail's body tissues, GAGs are primarily located inside granules and in the shell. They are discharged onto the surface as a viscose fluid material. Snail glycosaminoglycan tightly binds divalent copper cations (Cu 2+) and creates copper peptides, with skin rejuvenation properties. The proportion of copper in the snail mucins is remarkable, but copper peptides have also been proven to be effective in nanomolar amounts.
The biological components found in the balm also help accelerate cell rejuvenation. They repair lesions produced by sebum excess or clogged pores to the cells lining the sebum canals. They recover skin that has been harmed by injuries due to laser, accident, surgery, dermabrasion, burns, scratching, or other causes. They clear plugged pores that block sebum outflow and eliminate excess keratin formations found in actinic keratosis and keratosis pilaris caused by enzymes that break them down into their amino acid units.
After a wound, lesion or inflammatory response has appeared on the skin, both skin cells and connective tissue cells (fibroblasts) start reproducing to repair the damage. The fibroblasts form a framework upon which the skin cells can adhere to and fill-in the wound.
It is the balance between the rate of multiplication of fibroblasts versus skin cells that is CRUCIAL. If the fibroblasts grow too quickly, they can form a solid network that is not as easily penetrated by the skin cells and that results in a large thick scar. If the skin cells keep up with the fibroblasts, then little scar tissue is formed and the skin has a more normal look after the wound has healed.
Thus, to get good results it is IMPERATIVE that skin healing advances at more than a snail's pace, and here is where BIOSKINBALM plays a role: for it SPEEDS-UP the PROCESS OF INJURED HEALING.
BIOSKINBALM clears dead cells by producing enzymatic dissolution, destroying pathogens, healing and stimulating the rejuvenation of injured skin tissues.
Once inside the follicle the bio-active component in BIOSKINBALM will stimulate the formation of new elastic cells, collagen and pigmentation, filling in scarring cavities. It will also shrink and eliminate the old fibrous collagen created to repair flawed tissues. Soon new 'invisible' hair, called lanugo, will appear in the new hair follicles. It will also "pump-up” the cells and the "ground substances" in the skin. That also decreases wrinkles on the skin’s surface.
The secret of BIOSKINBALM is not only that it provides the normal ingredients which may be faulty in the skin, but also recovers the skin rejuvenation process by activating the germinal cells. The results are a firmer and healthier looking skin, an even skin color, healthy skin texture and healthy skin tissue turgidity.
BIOSKINBALM means clearer skin – skin you can touch, skin you can kiss, skin you are not ashamed to show to the world, whether you’re out shopping, in a formal meeting, at school or at the beach. You can apply BIOSKINBALM with confidence, knowing it is made with healthy and natural snail secretion plus an all-natural ingredient designed to recover the moisture barrier of your skin. BIOSKINBALM is fragrance-free and incorporates all biological preservatives.
BIOSKINBALM also helps in the fast regeneration of healthy skin that has been exposed to interventions such as laser surgery, microdermabrasion or chemical peels.
Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH) is an intensely itchy skin eruption. It usually shows up in young adults, and is more common in men and people originally from some areas of northern Europe. The symptoms are intense burning, stinging and itching around the elbows, knees, scalp, buttocks and back. More locations can also be affected and the severity can vary.
DH looks like small clusters of red, itchy bumps. There are tiny water blisters, but these are quickly scratched off. Before they form, the area usually has a burning feeling. They scab and heal over one or two weeks, but new spots continue to appear. DH is a lifelong condition, but remission may occur in 10 to 20 percent of patients.
Herpes virus does not cause DH, even though the name suggests that it does. The cause of DH is allergy to gluten, a protein found in wheat and some other grains. Usually allergies, likes hives and hay fever, are made by the body's IgE system. This can be treated with pills and shots. DH is different, and is an allergy of the IgA system. IgA is an antibody produced in the lining of the intestines. The usual allergy treatments are useless.
The rash is caused when gluten in the diet combines with IgA, and together they enter the blood stream and circulate. They eventually clog up the small blood vessels in the skin. This attracts white blood cells (neutrophils), and releases powerful chemicals called complements. They actually create the rash. Iodine is required for the reaction, so people with DH should avoid using Iodized salt.
The gut may also be affected by this allergy; this is called gluten-sensitive enteropathy (GSE) or celiac disease. Some people only have the GSE, some have GSE and DH and some just DH. It is not known why some develop on and not the other. There are cases of GSE that have turned cancerous (malignant lymphoma) so an evaluation by a gastroenterologist (a medical doctor specializing in the stomach and intestines) is prudent.
Diagnosis of DH usually requires at least one skin biopsy, and sometimes a blood test (looking for anti-gliadin, anti-reticulin and anti-endomysial antibodies). Once confirmed, treatment will be lifelong, although severity may wax and wane. Complete elimination of gluten is curative, but improvement takes months. The gluten-free diet is very difficult, as tiny amounts of gluten are in almost all restaurant and prepared foods, gum wrappers and the like. Cutting down on wheat and gluten may reduce the amount of medication needed, but will not be curative.
Fortunately, there is a very effective treatment. Dapsone is a drug that will improve DH in days. Because there can be side effects, the dose of Dapsone is usually started at a small amount, and then raised up over a few weeks until all symptoms are suppressed. Dapsone may have adverse effects, so weekly or bi-weekly blood tests will be needed for the first three months. There are a few alternative treatments if Dapsone cannot be used (sulfapyridine, tetracycline), however these do not work as well.

Diaper dermatitis or diaper rash is an irritation of the skin covering the groin, lower stomach, upper thighs and buttocks. The term diaper rash includes a variety of disorders of the skin that occur in infants, young children and incontinent or paralyzed individuals. This condition is seen more commonly in infants and early childhood prior to 2 years of age. Diaper dermatitis usually occurs between one and two months of age and may continue until the child no longer wears diapers. Diaper dermatitis may become irritated or difficult to treat if the area becomes infected or the patient becomes allergic to one of the medications applied to the area.
Diaper dermatitis starts with irritation from prolonged contact with urine and feces. After the skin becomes red and inflamed, bacteria and yeast grow on the raw areas. This will inflame the already irritated skin, making the diaper rash worse. Antibiotic treatment for throat and ear infections can cause yeast overgrowth making diaper dermatitis worse.
The best treatment for diaper dermatitis is to prevent it from starting. This is most easily done by using absorbent disposable diapers. These do not allow urine to come into contact with the skin. Modern absorbent disposable diapers can hold large amounts of urine and keep it away from the skin. For all practical purposes these diapers only need to be changed when they become soiled with feces or they get so heavy that they are down near the child's ankles. It is the mixture of urine and feces that causes the rash.
If one plans to use reusable cloth diapers, they must be changed each time after they become wet or every one to two hours. When using disposable diapers, it is important to prevent tape from adhering to the infant's skin. The adhesive can lead to skin break down. Contrary to popular belief, powder is not needed to keep the baby dry or to prevent diaper rash - in fact it may cause diaper rash to become inflamed particularly in the creases of the legs. Desitin (and other zinc oxide containing pastes), applied at bedtime are often helpful. This helps prevent a rash from starting if there is a nighttime bowel movement.
Keep the diaper area as dry as possible by using absorbent disposable diapers or by frequent changes of conventional diapers. Triple paste is an ointment that can be applied to the diapered area with every diaper change. A pharmacist usually makes this up by prescription. Lotrimin AF or Micatin creams can be used for diaper rash and can be purchased without a prescription. Avoid the use of Neosporin ointment, since this is a common product causing allergies. A dermatologist can help clear a diaper rash that does not easily clear with these instructions.

Addresses the three major ways in which our skin changes as we mature: it thickens skin that tends to get thinner, repairs accumulated sun damage and restores the protective barrier that tends to become depleted. It also strengthens sensitive skin so that it becomes resilient.
