Natural Skin Care for Keratosis
What is keratosis pilaris?
Keratosis pilaris, KP or also follicular keratosis, is genetic in origin but the precise causes of keratosis pilaris have not yet been determined. Still, many doctors believe that the cause of Keratosis pilaris is the overproduction of keratin inside the skin. This excess gets trapped inside the follicle, developing a bump.
In a medical sense there is no keratosis pilaris cure but the good news is most people present benign symptoms that can be relieved and treated. For many the condition is not a problem during most of the year but may relapse in winter if it is not taken care of with a good emollient product.
BIOSKINTREATMENT is a 100% natural skin care emollient cream that yields a two fold effect on skin blemishes: (1) Purifies the cells & decongests the hair follicles as it helps to eliminate keratin plugs, debris, toxins, and all damaged skin tissues. (2) Favors regeneration of skin cells and all the structures of healthy skin: collagen, elastin and the molecules that retain several times their weight in water in the skin (true moisturizing).
Those effects clear keratosis pilaris bumps, redness, rashes, acne and all skin blemishes – even scars that you have lived with for years will become softer and less noticeable.
Keratosis pilaris is a genetic or hereditary skin disorder associated with excess keratin inside the hair follicle. The condition manifests by the appearance of coarse bumps on the skin and hence colloquially referred to as “chicken skin bumps”.
There are several different types of keratosis pilaris:
Keratosis pilaris Alba: rough, white, bumpy skin
Keratosis pilaris rubra: red, inflamed bumps
Keratosis pilaris atrophicans: a genetic clogging of the pores and follicles with keratin, which leads to the death of the follicle. After the follicle has died the hair falls down leaving behind an unsightly scar.
Ichthyosis vulgaris: also known as common ichthyosis or fish scale disease, is a skin condition resulting in scaly skin, especially on the arms and legs, in overgrowth (hyperkeratosis) of the skin on the palms and soles (sometimes the skin creases may crack during dry weather) It also results in keratosis pilaris (follicular hyperkeratosis) on the side of the neck, back of the upper arms, buttocks and/or thighs.
Keratosis follicularis: characterized by scaly, warty, crusted papules distributed mostly on the seborrheic areas of the body. Nail involvement is characterized by V-shaped nicking at the distal aspect of the nail bed, longitudinal red and white alternating bands, and subungual hyperkeratosis (buildup of scales underneath the nailplate). Mucosal membrane involvement may occur as white papules on the buccal mucosae, palate, and gingiva with a cobblestone appearance.
Familial keratosis palmaris et plantaris: is characterized by extreme keratinization and desquamation of the skin of the palmar and plantar surfaces of the hands and feet or thickening of the palms and soles as a result of excessive keratin formation leading to hypertrophy of the stratum corneum.
Other skin disorders related to keratosis of the skin are:
Inverted follicular keratosis: a benign usually solitary epithelial tumor originating in a hair follicle and occurring as a flesh-colored nodule or papule. Inverted follicular keratosis is believed to be an inflammatory variant of seborrheic keratosis. It commonly is found on the faces and sun-exposed areas of elders. Typically, this lesion is located on the upper eyelid. The lesions tend to be single and presents as a papule or nodule.
Seborrheic Keratosis: seborrheic means greasy and keratosis means thickening of the skin. There may be just one or clusters of dozens. They are usually start off light tan, and then may darken to dark brown or nearly black. They may be oval spots a fraction of an inch across, or form long Christmas tree like patterns on the torso inches long. The consistent feature of seborrheic keratosis is their waxy, pasted-on or stuck-on look. The look is often compared to brown candle wax that was dropped onto the skin. They may be unsightly, especially if they begin to appear on the face. These are not contagious and do not spread. They have no relationship to skin cancer and do not pose a risk to health.
Products to get rid of keratosis pilaris red bumps and excess keratin
Our products are made with a serum produced by a living creature that thrives under the sun with its nude skin exposed and having the same collagen, elastin, skin cells, skin molecules & structures that human skin is made of.
This creature has been naturally endowed with the ability to produce a balanced and complete “skin care lotion” to protect, renew and deeply moisturize its skin. And to repair damage from UV solar radiation and free radical oxidation, pollution, environmental hazards and accidents. It also regenerates parts of its organs when bitten by birds (tentacles, eyes, mouth) as well as its shell when crushed or damaged.
The creature is common in most vineyards and gardens in Mediterranean climates. When it encounters any stressing event, such as a threat by insect predators, or the atmosphere full with oxygen and free radicals after hybernating inside its shell where it has remained without much oxygen and its metabolism is at rest, it bubbles this lotion onto its skin copiously.
We have embodied nature’s most complete, balanced and intense skin treatment solution, a biological compound of soluble proteins and complex acidic glyco (sugar) molecules created by live snails of the species Helix Aspersa Müller — collected pure from them while they secrete it copiously under stress but without doing any harm to the little snails — into BIOCUTIS skin care products.
Powerful Ingredient helps to REGULATE the skin remodeling and scar removal process
Topical application of the product on skin wounds and scars regulates or decreases keratin deposition and dermal fibroblast proliferation and reduces excess collagen production, and thus prevents and reduces keratosis and abnormal scarring.
The complexity of wound healing and scar formation parallels the complexity and synergistic effects on human skin of the substance live snails produce copiously when stressed or damaged to bathe their skin with it at will and achieve quick and scar-less repair. Thus, it is no minor challenge to try to explain what specifically about the soluble proteins, glyco (sugar chains) molecules, enzymes, co-enzymes, peptides and oligoelements in it conquers these particular human skin issues or disorders.
Analysis of the fluid has determined that it contains activators of skin growth factors and antimicrobial peptides. Also present are natural anti-inflammatory and immune modulating proteins, enzymes, co-enzymes, glycoproteins, proteoglycans, and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs).
GAGs are a family of linear anionic polysaccharides that are typically isolated as proteoglycans linked to a protein core. The biological functions of proteoglycans, including the regulation of cell growth, signaling, inflammation, tumorigenesis, and interactions with pathogens result, in large part, through the interaction of the GAG chains in proteoglycans with proteins, such as growth factors and their receptors. GAGs also provide hydration and swelling pressure to tissues enabling them to withstand compression forces.
The biological ingredient in BIOCUTIS products has several complex components that act in concert:
(1) proteolitic enzymes that degrade proteins that are no longer functional into their component amioacids and releases then for use in the rebuilding of healthy cells.
(2) messenger molecules that not only identify dysfunctional cells and differentiate them from the surrounding healthy tissues but also contribute to orchestrate the orderly layout of new collagen and all the structural elements of healthy skin;
(3) antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that limit oxidation damage after tissue injury;
(4) stabilizers, co-factors, and/or co-receptors for:
(4a) proteins produced by the human body that enable cells to communicate and effectively coordinate activities between one another (growth factors),
(4b) intracellular messenger molecules whose major function is to attract immune cells to sites of infection (chemokines), and
4c) regulatory proteins released by cells of the immune system that act as intercellular mediators in the generation of an immune response (cytokines).
It leaves your skin smooth, refreshed, soft and with use over a period of time it takes away all imperfections and blemishes: acne, scars, keratosis bumps, razor nicks and burns, actinic keratosis lesions, roughness, dryness, ezcema, dermatitis, the effects on the skin of radiotherapy for cancer, blisters, scrapes, cuts, and the list can go on and on…
- It spectacularly brightens and enhances the complexion.
- Dissolves dead and dying cells on the topmost micron of skin (part of the outer layer that is no thicker than a sheet of paper, slowly and over a period of time).
- Digests damaged cells and keratin plugs within the dermis by the action of biological enzymes.
- Stimulates the use of the aminoacids that the enzymes free and activates the fibroblast stem cells which favor the proliferation of new healthy connective tissues and all the structural elements of healthy skin.
- Stimulates the formation of the extracellular binding between cells, thus improving skin strength, cutting down on fragility.
- Restores the capacity of the skin to remain hydrated by stimulating the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans and proteoglycans, the molecules that give skin its capacity to keep in moisture. This helps to thicken the dermis resulting in a lessening of sagging and less fine lines and wrinkles.
- Neutralises free radicals by the action of its potent antioxidanta that also have an anti-inflammatory effect.
- Inhibits microbiological activity of dangerous, pathogenic skin bacteria, including acne.
- Regulates blood vessel formation and oxygenation within the capillaries in the skin contributing to its proper nourishment.
Regulates dermal fibroblast proliferation and excess collagen, and thus prevents and reduces abnormal scars such as keloid and hyperthropic scarring and slowly but consistently gets rid of ice-pick scars or pitted acne scars.
Skin repair is enhanced by signalling the body to reproduce fibroblasts and “digest” damaged cells at the adequate rate.
The biological ingredient in BIOCUTIS products increases the skin’s regenerative processes – in addition to accelerating removal of dysfunctional keratin and damaged protein in the skin, it stimulates skin renewal without harsh exfoliation or the use of expensive laser procedures, and helps to produce a better skin renewal with milder exfoliation or various controlled skin damage methods. It also enhances the skin’s natural regenerative responses by stimulating new capillary formation (angiogenesis), and the orchestrated biosynthesis of collagen, elastin and the water-holding proteoglycans and glycosaminoglycans.
The beauty and genius of nature’s most complete and balanced biological skin treatment lotion is that it first creates the equivalent of a NON TRAUMA exfoliation which means that your skin will react to the biological enzymes by activating its own biological response modifiers thereby interacting with your body’s immune system and repair mechanisms to treat skin injuries (cuts, bruises, abrasions, acne lesions, scarring), dysfunctional tissues (keratosis, keloid and hypertrophic scars, dryness) and prevent immune-mediated inflammatory skin disorders (inflammatory acne, rosacea, eczema and most dermatitis reactions).
And it will do so in an environment that has also been provided with all the molecule messengers that are necessary for a) the recognition of those cells and tissues that are damaged and need to be “digested” by the enzymes and b) an orchestrated regeneration or biosynthesis of new healthy tissues.
When the enzymes “digest” or dissolve the topmost micron of skin (part of the outer layer that is no thicker than a sheet of paper, slowly and over a period of time) unlike all other such methods as glycolic acid peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing, there is no heat and blistering, so there is nothing to heal.
When you burn your skin, your body creates healing protein like collagen and elastin bands, pus, melanin, water, and antibodies (inflamm-aging) that rush to the aid of the trauma. In that case, there actually IS a burn to tend to…
However, during your BIOCUTIS treatment, there is NOT any burn or trauma repair. The proteins that transport the repair elements to the epidermis and underlying stratum corneum are flooded with your own molecules and DNA. The new skin growth that is waiting to be exposed is not only smoother and tighter on its own, but it has just been soaked with those reparation proteins and water holding molecules that hydrated your skin and flooded to the surface to come to the aid of the ‘NON TRAUMA EXFOLIATION’.
BIOSKINTREATMENT also treats the dry, scaly skin that is present when skin is affected by actinic keratosis or ichthyosis vulgaris by exfoliating and thus reducing keratin clogged pores. And it helps to remove ingrown hairs and treat folliculitis (barber’s itch).
