What is Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a disease of the auto-immune system which displays itself on the skin.  Symptoms mainly manifest in the form of what is known as plaque - raised red lesions covered in what is known as ‘scale’ – dead skin cells, which are whitish in colour. Flare ups often occur following skin injury or other illness, with acne and psoriasis often causing simulataneous discomfort.

Psoriasis treatment can take many forms depending on how severe the symptoms are. For many a topical gel or cream should be enough to ease the symptoms and promote healing. Psoriasis skin care requires the careful consideration of products, as anything too abrasive ot heavily perfumed may cause discomfort. Hypnoallergenic, natural skin care products are often the safest option.

I Have Psoriasis - This is My Story.

"I was so fed up with the products on the market, they were full of chemicals, smelt awful and were painful to use.  Thankfully I had the opportunity to help develop these natural products.  Please read my story below and I strongly recommend you give these fantastic products a try."

"They really have changed my life and I am sure they will help you too."

Lucy's Story

Psoriasis sufferer

"I used to have severe psoriasis on my scalp and it was very painful and blighting my life.

I tried everything I could but found tar-based products smelled awful and were painful to remove plaque with, while steroid-based products had their own drawbacks.

So I asked if the laboratories I worked for could possibly develop a nature-based solution using traditional plant ingredients such as juices and essential oils, and they came up with what is now the Katharine Botanicals psoriasis range. There were a number of samples so I tried them all, and settled on the best.

Scalp Psoriasis, and Other Affected Areas

This form of psoriasis is extremely common, affecting as it does half or more of all people with psoriasis. It presents in the normal fashion as raised red lesions which later produce scale.

Scalp psoriasis runs the entire range from a very slight presence to extremely severe development; in fact the whole scalp can be encrusted causing severe distress and even lead to loss of hair. It often develops beyond the scalp onto the neck, forehead and ears.

Treating Scalp Psoriasis - soothing and healing

Psoriasis scalp treatment often takes the form of medicated mild shampoos or conditioners.

There are many forms of psoriasis scalp treatment, but you should consider how the treatment you adopt will affect your daily life. The most important thing to do is to get control of the lesions and crusting.

  • World Psoriasis Day: Take Part with a Testimonial

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin

    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.

  • 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.
