SECOND SKIN was first developed for a client with tinea versicolor and has since been used to heal radiation dermatitis, heat burns, eczema and psoriasis.
"I often say about Second Skin that she is like a kid that you trained in something as they grew up and then she went on to surprise and delight me by doing so much more that I thought she would. But that's what a great product is, one that has an arch of reach that is long and wide."

Lets look at the ingredients to see why this baby works miracles...
Aloe Vera is, hands down, perhaps the most studied plant for skin issues. This healer has most of its power in the polysaccharides it contains. These special plant sugars are crucial to cells of the body talking to each other, which is a primary step in the healing process.
Aloe vera should never ever be left out of a skincare routine because it simply does so much for the skin. Analgesic (pain relieving), Antibacterial, Antiviral, Collagen Stimulator (of the best type of of collagen the skin can make! This means stronger skin, literally), Hormones that speed wound healing. Here is an awesome scientific breakdown of Aloe Vera Studies.
Oat Oil is not only like liquid silk when applied, its avenanthramides are what give it the famous action of soothing and stopping itching. The physical relief that Oat Oil provides in this blend is one of the most important to the sufferer.
Neem Oil ... never underestimate a 4,000 year old healer. This tree that grows primarily in India has been lauded for its healing ability for centuries. Neem is an extremely strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and has been used successfully in the treatment of "atopy" which is a general term for issues like eczema, psoriasis, and other reactive skin conditions.
Tamanu Oil is another ancient oil that has been used by indigenous peoples for centuries. This oil has been scientifically shown to be a strong anti-inflammatory and to reduce swelling quickly. It also accelerates wound healing and the regrowth of healthy skin.
Black Cumin Seed Oil has a wealth of vitamins and minerals and is included in Second Skin as a nutrative for compromised skin. It also has shown to be a successful treatment for vitiligo and decrease the histamine (allergic) response of the skin.
Shea Butter is nourishing with great fatty acids and vitamin A as well as contributing to the absorption of the other oils because of its high stearic acid content.
Ucuuba Butter is in the nutmeg family and has been used historically to treat eczema and psoriasis.
