Soratinex Cleansing Gel is used for the care of dry, flaking and thickened skin of the scalp and body in adults. This formula contains exfoliating alpha hydroxyl acids combined with surfactants to cleanse skin and loosen the scale build up.
About Soratinex Skin Care Gel:
Psoriasis is a condition that results in the build-up of dead skin cells on the surface of the skin. This can lead to symptoms of itch and excessive skin flaking, often affecting visible areas of the body and scalp. These symptoms can be the cause of great discomfort and embarrassment for the sufferer and therefore daily management with a skin care routine can provide much needed relief.
The best products for dry, thick and flaky presentations of the scalp and body contain natural exfoliating (keratolytic) properties which help to remove dead skin build up and reduce symptoms of flakiness. In addition to reduced flaking, keratolytic agents such as AHA’s help to break up thickened skin, which allows for better absorption of the Soratinex Emollient and Skin Care Oil, therefore improving skin healing outcomes. The best way to achieve optimal results for dry and flaky conditions of the scalp, is to apply the Skin Care Gel as a shampoo, once daily and follow with an overnight application of the Skin Care Oil. This routine can also be followed with dry, thick and flaky lesions on the body, hands and feet, with the addition of Soratinex Emollient.
Suitable For Skin Prone To:
Salicylic acid is indicated as a topical aid in the removal of excessive keratin (skin cell) build up. Salicylic acid exfoliation works by dissolving the intercellular cement that binds scales in the stratum corneum, (upper layer of the skin). Salicylic acid also possesses anti-inflammatory, anti-pruritic, antiseborrhoeic, analgesic and antimicrobial properties.
Alpha hydroxy acids may decrease the adhesion of dead skin cells by weakening intracellular bonding, thereby freeing skin cells and permitting more efficient exfoliation and skin cleansing. AHA’s encourage normal healthy growth and functioning of the epidermis. AHA’s contribute to the re- acidification of the stratum corneum (upper layer of the skin) assisting in re-establishing the acid mantle and restoring barrier function.
