Psoriasis Treatment Gel and a University Reunion

Hi Katharine,

I saw that you are allowing contributions to your blog and thought you might like to hear about an old friend of mine who has suffered from psoriasis for many years.

We were at university together (far too many years ago to count now!) and she had the most awful psoriasis, mainly on her body but occasionally on her arms and face too.  I can still remember the smell of the horrible tar stuff she used to use to try to treat it, but it never really seemed to make a huge amount of difference.   And even in those days she was very environmentally aware and hated using anything chemical on her skin, but she didn’t have a great deal of choice.  You can only imagine how she felt.

Anyway, we caught up again for the first time in years just before Christmas, and she was STILL suffering as she said there was still no effective psoriasis treatment, chemical or otherwise that did much beyond alleviating it for a very short time.  I then remembered I’d seen that you have a Psoriasis Treatment Gel on your website, when I was buying your marine collagen supplement, so I suggested she might give it a go as she had nothing to lose – particularly as it’s completely natural and not made from animal products (she’s also a vegetarian!).

This was all a couple of months ago, and she’s just emailed me to thank me for recommending your gel, which she has been using ever since. She says that it’s the best product she’s ever tried and that it’s cleared up her psoriasis like I wouldn’t believe.  I think she’s also using the shampoo and conditioner now as well as she likes the gel so much! So I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my very happy friend as this has made such a big difference to her everyday life. Oh, and I really like your marine collagen supplement and Pure Indulgence cream too, they make me feel like university wasn't so long ago after all when I look in the mirror now....!

  • World Psoriasis Day: Take Part with a Testimonial

    World Psoriasis Day takes place on the 29th of October each year and serves as a podium for people to experience psoriasis to offer their accounts of living with the condition. Though one of the first skin diseases to be recognised psoriasis continues to be misunderstood and those that experience it discover large amounts of misinformation available. World Psoriasis Day is attempting to combat this confusion by encouraging those who experience psoriasis to post pictures of themselves with testimonials.

  • Hug a Vegan This September

    Many consider a vegan lifestyle to be very rewarding and it's certainly easier on our environment. Whether you're aiming to eat nothing that comes from an animal or ensure that you're not using products that use animal products or participate in animal testing, these are all elements that reduce cruelty and pollution. Recent studies have shown that methane from livestock accounts for more greenhouse gasses in the UK than our roads and trains combined! And animal testing accounts for thousands of animals that are forced to endure discomfort for human cosmetic needs. This is why Katharine Botanicals offers a wide range of products that are entirely vegan.

    As the internet makes it easier for conscientious shoppers to make ethical choices, it's also easier than ever to discover the benefits of making these choices when you purchase. In fact, PETA recently held a celebration just for vegans called "hug a vegan day". Last year it was all about vegetarians and now vegans are getting the love from PETA! The official hug a vegan day was held last Friday on the 27th of September but we feel that there is all the time in the world to show your appreciation for all the good things nature has to offer.

  • Ethically Aware Consumers Demand More From Their Cosmetics

    In fact, the organic cosmetic industry grew by 5.6% last year and now stands at a value of £31.8m.

  • Sunlight and Benefits to Psoraisis

    Whilst the recent weather has been somewhat unpredictable, we can also say that this has been one of the brightest summers that the UK has enjoyed for some time. This is an excellent opportunity for suffers of psoriasis to enjoy sunlight and the vitamin D that comes with it. Vitamin D and ultra violet light are both completely natural elements that can help to soothe skin suffering from psoriasis. Ultra violet light is already used as a medical treatment by many doctors, where synthesised UVB rays are created with sun lamps. Injections are also utilised to encourage the skin to soak up even more of the beneficial UV light but I’m sure most would rather a natural course of sunbathing. This bright sunshine gives many who live with psoriasis the chance to enjoy a free and completely natural course of UV light and all the benefits that come with it.
