Neurodermatitis, also known as atopic eczema, is a chronic skin inflammation that occurs in phases. The causes lie in a disturbance of the immune system. The natural protective barrier is disturbed, the skin lacks lipids, which means it loses moisture and can penetrate allergenic and other toxic or irritating substances more easily. Typical skin reactions are in part very strong itching, feeling of tension and inflammation.
Which care is suitable for neurodermatitis?
Since the protective barrier of the skin is disturbed in neurodermatitis, active agents that strengthen or rebuild this natural barrier layer are particularly useful. The fat and moisture balance should be brought back into a healthy balance. Since neurodermatitis is accompanied by severe itching, itch-relieving active ingredients are also ideal. As the skin is very susceptible to allergens, a low-scented care should be used. Aloe vera juice contained in all Santaverde products helps against itching. Active ingredients such as pansy blossom extract contained in the pure products are suitable for an anti-inflammatory effect. Aloe vera, hyaluron and soothing active ingredients from rose, rose hip, almond or evening primrose are ideal for building up the fat and moisture balance. We often hear from our customers that they are very successful in using the following products for neurodermatitis:
The cleansing emulsion has a moisturising effect and preserves the skin's hydro-lipid layer. Then sprayed on, the toner sensitive has a calming and balancing effect due to the rose blossom hydrolate it contains. The pure refining serum with pansy blossom extract and evening primrose oil is ideal as special care. Depending on your skin care needs and sensations, use cream medium without fragrance with protective avodaco and grape seed oil or the rich, restorative rich aloe vera cream without fragrance with soothing evening primrose and moisture-binding argan oil. For the sensitive eye area eye cream without fragrance is the right choice.
As the mildest, purest aloe vera product, pure aloe vera gel can also be applied in places to irritated areas of the face and is very well suited for affected areas of the body. Customers also report on our body lotions as the perfect body care product.
