Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea are fairly common and although there is a multitude of research on them - there is not a lot of products that don't contain steroids to provide relief from these conditions.
Grahams Natural prides themselves on providing relief from these skin conditions through using only natural formulated and clinically tested ingredients.
Steroids in Skincare
The most common steroid used in skincare or skin treatments for eczema and psoriasis are topical steroids. These steroids work by preventing cells from producing inflammation-causing chemicals that are released in response to a variety of different triggers. However, with these steroids come side effects that include skin thinning, potential increase in blood pressure and permanent stretch marks from an extended period of use.
Why we don't use steroids.
As steroids provide harmful skin side effects, we have created clinically tested and formulated natural products that provide relief from common skin problems without having the nasty side effects of steroids.
Our ingredient decks are created specifically to treat and aid in the relief of specific skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and rosacea. Grahams natural products are class I medical device products meaning that all the ingredients must have scientific and clinical data that is proven to assist in the management of the condition. Some companies use 1 or 2 active ingredients, but we use a ‘football team’ full of ingredients that all have a part to play in making a product work on the condition that we are claiming i.e: Eczema. Therefore, we have clinically formulated our ingredients to actively provide relief from skin conditions without the use of steroids.
The main element in Grahams Natural products for not using steroids is we believe our bodies, particularly our skin needs natural, active ingredients that have authentic healing properties. Steroids are crafted in labs and although may work in some cases, often they cause harm to the skin like the thinning of the skin.
