Eczema & Moisturising Balm

Chronic skin complaints such as psoriasis or eczema may occur due to genetic, environmental or lifestyle influences, or a combination of the three.

Environmental causes include changes in season or climate, particularly those involving dramatic changes in humidity. For eczema, it is suggested that overly sterile human environments may contribute to development of allergies in children; as well as this, it is suggested that dust mite allergy is strongly associated with the condition.

There are several forms of dermatitis, with the two most common forms being chronic dermatitis (eczema) and contact or acute dermatitis (which is caused by direct contact with an allergen or irritant, and is often mistaken for eczema). The symptoms generally range from red skin and bumpy rashes to severe blistering and lesions in severe cases. Blisters and lesions may weep or ooze and may ultimately lead to unsightly scarring (source www.hempfarm.co.nz/psoriasis-eczema-improves-hemp).

Dry itchy skin is the most common symptom.

Hemp Oil contains one particular fatty acid called gamma linoenic acid (GLA), this has powerful anti-inflammatory properties so when applied topically reduce the redness, soreness and severity caused by the symptoms of these skin conditions. Also the added bonus of anti-oxidants vitamin A,E and D found in hemp seed oil also assist in the repair and renewal of the skin cells. (source www.hempfactory.com.au)
