Living with psoriasis is tough enough but bathing can make it even more challenging. That’s because bathing can leave your skin dry and even cause psoriasis to flare-up. At-home remedies have been used for years to treat psoriasis, such as colloidal oatmeal baths. We’ve developed an all-in-one solution in the form of a fun and convenient bath bomb to help making bathing enjoyable and ease your psoriasis symptoms.
For those of you who have been following us closely, Psoriasis Honey was a “spin-off” brand of Eczema Honey. We founded Psoriasis Honey because so many people were requesting that we make psoriasis products, and we’ve decided to formulate products just for them. Many people were regularly using Eczema Honey products and have seen results for their psoriasis. The goal of Psoriasis Honey is not to simply re-brand the product. Each Psoriasis Honey product we bring to the market is designed purposely for the needs of psoriasis sufferers (learn more about the differences between eczema and psoriasis in our blog here).
What makes the Psoriasis Honey Bath Bomb good for Psoriasis?
There are two star ingredients in the Psoriasis Honey Bath Bomb: Aloe and salts. Aloe vera has natural soothing properties that help to deal with a lot of the nasty psoriasis symptoms like redness and scaling. Aloe vera naturally contains many active constituents, including salicylic acid which helps to promote skin turnover. It contains antioxidant vitamins A , C and E, that all work to nourish the skin. These are just a few of the beneficial components in aloe.
Salt: nature’s seasoning is also one of nature’s best exfoliants. Exfoliating can help with psoriasis since someone with the condition can produce as much as 10 times the number of skin cells as a normal person. We combined Dead Sea Salt with Epsom Salt to increase the skin softening and exfoliating effectiveness. Dead Sea Salt has a variety of beneficial minerals that provide skin benefits while Epsom Salt (made of magnesium, sulfur, and oxygen) imparts relaxing magnesium into your skin that can reduce inflammation while reducing itching and redness.
We produce our Bath Bombs (and all of our products) in our commercial kitchen in California.
It’s Time to Enjoy Bathing Again
To round things out, sodium bicarbonate helps to protect the skin. A moisturizing blend of cocoa butter, oat milk, and oat extract help to reduce dryness after the bath and leave the skin feeling supple. Finally, colloidal oatmeal and witch hazel add an extra line of defense to reduce itchiness and inflammation.
To use the Psoriasis Honey Oatmeal and Aloe Bath Bomb, simply drop it in your bath to enjoy its benefits. If you are bathing a small child, you could break the bath bomb in half if you’d like to use it twice. For best results, we recommend using water that’s not too hot since that can potentially irritate your skin and leave it dry.
