New Article Reveals How One of the Key Ingredients in Columbia Antiseptic Powder Plays a Major Role in Skin Healing
New York (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
A new article reveals how Zinc oxide, one of the key ingredients in columbia antiseptic powder plays a key function in skin healing at the cellular level by accelerating the epithelialization of the skin (1).
Zinc oxide has been shown to prevent and heal inflammation, protect against the sun’s dangerous UV rays, and is an effective eczema treatment, psoriasis treatment and helps to heal various skin injuries such as burns and irritation. Zinc oxide can also be used to heal wounds, and reduce the irritation of sunburns and chapped skin. People who are zinc deficient typically experience slower wound healing times, says Jonathan Moore, DPM. When zinc oxide is applied to a wound, it aids the body in providing the extra zinc skin cells need to repair. (3)
Columbia Skincare is taking the phrase “better than the sum of its parts,” quite literally. With its meticulously formulated antiseptic powder, Columbia offers results superior to other medicated powders by combining zinc oxide with phenol. This is a unique blend of naturally occurring ingredients which are commonly used in other medicines but not commonly blended together.
The antiseptic properties of phenol were first championed by Sir Joseph Lister who was such a proponent that it became the first widely used antiseptic in surgery. Lister determined that phenol kills harmful bacteria and fungus that caused infection. Prior to his pioneering work, nothing was done to prevent infection after surgery. His studies were prompted by Louis Pasteur’s advances in microbiology and showed phenol was safe to use, producing no ill-effects on the livestock that grazed upon fields treated with it. (3)
When zinc oxide is blended with phenol, a potentiation occurs which results in having a much stronger zinc oxide, ten-times stronger in fact. This stronger form of zinc oxide remains safe, just much more effective. Bacteria cannot develop a resistance to phenol, because phenol denatures the protein in the bacteria cell membranes. Bacteria do, however, develop a tolerance to antibiotic based powders. (4)
Healthy skin provides a protective shield from irritants and infectious agents. Unfortunately, the skin’s natural barrier may be compromised resulting in irritation, rashes or infection. (11) Columbia brand products offer a safe, effective and natural way to maximize the skins ability to remain or become healthy.
“There is a big difference in effectiveness and safety among over-the-counter topical treatments being used today and our medicated powder,” says company spokesman Steven Rosenfeld.
Columbia skin care products have been carefully developed & manufactured to address the needs of skin from both a restorative and a protective perspective. Their formulations use proprietary technologies and ingredients selected and manufactured exclusively in the United States since 1871. The regular use of Columbia Antiseptic Powder and Columbia Healing Cream skin care products has proven to be an effective way of maintaining healthy skin.

http://www.DrAngelaAgrios.com – Dr. Angela Agrios, ND (A California Licensed Naturopathic Doctor) explains the benefits of taking fish oil, which contains very valuable Omega 3 Fatty Acids, and is very high in EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid), DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ALA (alphalinolenic acid). She discusses:
• Flax oil has ALA in it, but not DHA or EPA.
• Udo’s 3 6 9 oil is a vegetarian source of ALA, DHA and EPA
• Fish oil is anti-inflammatory, helps with mood and helps with cognitive function
• Oil is better than capsules because of the amount of oil required to get a therapeutic dose
• Good fish oil that is not rancid should not taste “fishy”
• Cod liver oil has a heavier flavor
• Molecularly distilled oil does not have mercury or heavy metals in it
• Be careful of oxidized oil, so use it quickly, and the pill version may go rancid faster
• Biting fish oil capsules ought not to taste “fishy” and if it does, it is rancid
• Put the oil into an anti-oxidant rich juice to cut the taste
• Fish oil helps with hormone issues and cardiovascular health
• Krill oil is good
• Most patients are on 1 tablespoon of oil per day
• Fish oil is blood thinning

Los Angeles, CA — (SBWIRE) — 04/29/2013 — Revitol Dermasis Psoriasis Cream is an over-the-counter (OTC) anti-psoriasis treatment. Consumer testimonials suggest that this cream is indeed effective at eliminating redness, itching, clearing scaly skin, healing deep cracks and keeping the symptoms from returning.
Does Revitol Dermasis Psoriasis Cream Really Work?
Consumer experiences suggest that results from the use of Dermasis Psoriasis Cream become visible within two to three weeks. An overwhelming number of Revitol Dermasis Cream reviews pointed out that this medication provided fast relief from itching, though it takes about three to four weeks for more significant and permanent results to develop.
Our team also researched other remedies like topical corticosteroids, Calcineurin inhibitors, Coal tar and cosmetic cures for psoriasis and found that most therapies provided temporary relief and that overuse of clinical treatments like light therapy were known to produce serious side effects.
Most Revitol psoriasis cream users were extremely pleased with the safe route this product provides for eliminating psoriasis and that it was much less expensive than dermatological procedures.
How Does It Work?
Dermasis cream is made with palm oil which penetrates the skin and provides a thin protective layer. The product’s ingredients also include 2% Salicyclic acid as an active ingredient, which swiftly sloughs off the dead skin cells and helps reduce pain and discomfort caused by deep cracks in skin. Vitamin E Acetate acts as an anti-oxidant and protects skin from ultraviolet light while Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Trea Oil) soothes the skin and alleviates itching. This formulation has been shown to work for mild, moderate and severe cases.
The way these compounds are combined and the strengths used make Revitol potent enough to remove scales that have been present for years.
Where to Buy Revitol Dermasis Psoriasis Cream?
You can order Revitol Dermasis from other websites including web stores like Amazon, EBay, Walmart, Walgreens, but our research revealed that the few reports of Dermasis cream being ineffective were always about medication that wasn’t purchased from the official site. Thus, we recommend that you only purchase Revitol Dermasis Cream from its official website.
You can only buy Dermasis psoriasis cream in USA and Canada. International laws prevent it from being sold to residents of UK, Canada, Australia, South Africa, NZ, Singapore.
Purchasing from the official website also gives you access to the 60-Day Return Guarantee and significant discounts on the listed price.

Q. Your readers did it again!
I’ve been drinking oolong tea for more than a month now, and the patches of psoriasis have disappeared, along with the flaking.
I still have a couple of areas that need some ointment now and then, but overall I can wear shorts now without being embarrassed about my skin. (My skinny legs are another matter.) Thanks.
A. A study long ago in Japan found that oolong tea was effective in easing treatment-resistant eczema (Archives of Dermatology, January 2001), but we have found no studies of oolong tea for psoriasis.
Several visitors to our website have reported that drinking oolong tea eased their psoriasis. Others have noted that turmeric or cilantro also can be helpful.
(…good to know since psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disease.)
The modern diet of processed foods, takeaways and microwave meals could be to blame for a sharp increase in autoimmune diseases such as multiple sclerosis, including alopecia, asthma and eczema.
A team of scientists from Yale University in the U.S and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, in Germany, say junk food diets could be partly to blame.
‘This study is the first to indicate that excess refined and processed salt may be one of the environmental factors driving the increased incidence of autoimmune diseases,’ they said.
Junk foods at fast food restaurants as well as processed foods at grocery retailers represent the largest sources of sodium intake from refined salts.
The Canadian Medical Association Journal sent out an international team of researchers to compare the salt content of 2,124 items from fast food establishments such as Burger King, Domino’s Pizza, Kentucky Fried Chicken, McDonald’s, Pizza Hut and Subway. They found that the average salt content varied between companies and between the same products sold in different countries.
U.S. fast foods are often more than twice as salt-laden as those of other countries. While government-led public health campaigns and legislation efforts have reduced refined salt levels in many countries, the U.S. government has been reluctant to press the issue. That’s left fast-food companies free to go salt crazy, says Norm Campbell, M.D., one of the study authors and a blood-pressure specialist at the University of Calgary.
Many low-fat foods rely on salt–and lots of it–for their flavor. One packet of KFC’s Marzetti Light Italian Dressing might only have 15 calories and 0.5 grams fat, but it also has 510 mg sodium–about 1.5 times as much as one Original Recipe chicken drumstick. (Feel like you’re having too much of a good thing? You probably are.
Bread is the No. 1 source of refined salt consumption in the American diet, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Just one 6-inch Roasted Garlic loaf from Subway–just the bread, no meat, no cheeses, no nothing–has 1,260 mg sodium, about as much as 14 strips of bacon.
How Refined Salt Causes Autoimmune Disease
The team from Yale University studied the role of T helper cells in the body. These activate and ‘help’ other cells to fight dangerous pathogens such as bacteria or viruses and battle infections.
Previous research suggests that a subset of these cells – known as Th17 cells – also play an important role in the development of autoimmune diseases.
In the latest study, scientists discovered that exposing these cells in a lab to a table salt solution made them act more ‘aggressively.’
They found that mice fed a diet high in refined salts saw a dramatic increase in the number of Th17 cells in their nervous systems that promoted inflammation.
They were also more likely to develop a severe form of a disease associated with multiple sclerosis in humans.
The scientists then conducted a closer examination of these effects at a molecular level.
Laboratory tests revealed that salt exposure increased the levels of cytokines released by Th17 cells 10 times more than usual. Cytokines are proteins used to pass messages between cells.
Study co-author Ralf Linker, from the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, said: ‘These findings are an important contribution to the understanding of multiple sclerosis and may offer new targets for a better treatment of the disease, for which at present there is no cure.’
It develops when the immune system mistakes the myelin that surrounds the nerve fibres in the brain and spinal cord for a foreign body.
It strips the myelin off the nerves fibres, which disrupts messages passed between the brain and body causing problems with speech, vision and balance.
Another of the study’s authors, Professor David Hafler, from Yale University, said that nature had clearly not intended for the immune system to attack its host body, so he expected that an external factor was playing a part.
He said: ‘These are not diseases of bad genes alone or diseases caused by the environment, but diseases of a bad interaction between genes and the environment.
‘Humans were genetically selected for conditions in sub-Saharan Africa, where there was no salt. It’s one of the reasons that having a particular gene may make African Americans much more sensitive to salt.
‘Today, Western diets all have high salt content and that has led to increase in hypertension and perhaps autoimmune disease as well.’
The team next plan to study the role that Th17 cells play in autoimmune conditions that affect the skin.
‘It would be interesting to find out if patients with psoriasis can alleviate their symptoms by reducing their salt intake,’ they said.
‘However, the development of autoimmune diseases is a very complex process which depends on many genetic and environmental factors.’
Stick to Good Salts
Refined, processed and bleached salts are the problem. Salt is critical to our health and is the most readily available nonmetallic mineral in the world. Our bodies are not designed to processed refined sodium chloride since it has no nutritional value. However, when a salt is filled with dozens of minerals such as in rose-coloured crystals of Himalayan rock salt or the grey texture of Celtic salt, our bodies benefit tremendously for their incorporation into our diet.
“These mineral salts are identical to the elements of which our bodies have been built and were originally found in the primal ocean from where life originated,” argues Dr Barbara Hendel, researcher and co-author of Water & Salt, The Essence of Life. “We have salty tears and salty perspiration. The chemical and mineral composition of our blood and body fluids are similar to sea water. From the beginning of life, as unborn babies, we are encased in a sack of salty fluid.”
“In water, salt dissolves into mineral ions,” explains Dr Hendel. “These conduct electrical nerve impulses that drive muscle movement and thought processes. Just the simple act of drinking a glass of water requires millions of instructions that come from mineral ions. They’re also needed to balance PH levels in the body.”
Mineral salts, she says, are healthy because they give your body the variety of mineral ions needed to balance its functions, remain healthy and heal. These healing properties have long been recognised in central Europe. At Wieliczka in Poland, a hospital has been carved in a salt mountain. Asthmatics and patients with lung disease and allergies find that breathing air in the saline underground chambers helps improve symptoms in 90 per cent of cases.
Dr Hendel believes too few minerals, rather than too much salt, may be to blame for health problems. It’s a view that is echoed by other academics such as David McCarron, of Oregon Health Sciences University in the US.
He says salt has always been part of the human diet, but what has changed is the mineral content of our food. Instead of eating food high in minerals, such as nuts, fruit and vegetables, people are filling themselves up with “mineral empty” processed food and fizzy drinks.

Several patches had proved impossible to cure with other medications. When my blood test showed a normal level of vitamin D, the doctor asked me to cut back the dosage. I did, and the psoriasis returned.
I now take 5,000 units of vitamin D capsules per day, and that keeps my psoriasis in check. Regular monitoring of my vitamin D level shows that I am in the middle of the acceptable range with this dosage.
A: Dermatologists have embraced topical vitamin D-like prescription creams, foams and ointments for psoriasis (American Journal of Clinical Dermatology, August 2012). Calcipotriene (Calcitrene, Dovonex, Sorilux) is pricey, however.
Many doctors may have forgotten that oral vitamin D also can be helpful (Journal of Dermatological Treatment online, Jan. 21, 2012). More than 25 years ago, Japanese researchers noted that oral vitamin D-3 reduced the symptoms of psoriasis without side effects (British Journal of Dermatology, October 1986).
