Question: Does it contain Manuka Honey?

a.     We use raw and organic premium local honey to make Skin Repair Cream.

Question: Can I use this product on my face without it clogging my pores?

a.     The Skin Repair Cream is non-comedogenic, which means that it is formulated not to block pores. Although the ingredients include several essential oils, this Cream is easily absorbed by the skin, and does not leave a greasy feel behind. We do recommend only using a small dime sized amount spread evenly across your skin, which will be sufficient and go a long way. Also, if you believe that your skin needs more frequent attention, you may also apply more frequent but lighter applications throughout the day instead of applying a large amount once a day. This way, your skin will be able to gradually and consistently absorb the ingredients.  

Question: What's the consistency of this cream?

a.     The Skin Repair Cream is incredibly light on your skin, yet it is not as runny as a lotion. The consistency is very close to a cold cream, which despite having several essential oils is absorbed quickly by the skin. To make a comparison, it is not as thick as Vaseline nor does it have the greasy feel of Vaseline.  

Question: Will this work on plaque psoriasis?

a.     Although treatment of this condition is dependent upon severity of the condition and the symptoms, the very first step in preventing or alleviating this condition is to keep your skin hydrated. Plaque Psoriasis causes the skin to be inflamed, with red lesions, covered by silver or white scales. The Skin Repair Cream provides instant and even long term relief for your dry, scaly, and red skin due to its anti-inflammatory qualities. However, if the condition is severe or acute form of plaque psoriasis, topical application alone may not be enough to eliminate the problem without medication. However, consistent application of this cream will allow your skin to absorb the nutrients over time and reduces the inflammation.

Question: Is this cream also an anti-bacterial?

a.     While this Cream soothes and alleviates itchiness, dry and scaly skin, it is not meant to function primarily as an anti-bacterial. However, Aloe Vera used in making this cream has the second highest concentration which contributes to the Cream’s anti-bacterial quality.

Question: Is this product safe for use all over the body?

a.     This Skin Repair Cream can be used as an all-over body moisturizer. However, as with any other Cream, unless if specifically intended for under eyes, it is always recommended to avoid the area around eyes.

Once you are assured there are no allergic reactions, you can use it for all over your body for sunburns, rashes, and dry skin conditions.
