'Eczema Salve' Natural Pine Tar & Neem Kernel Oil blended with organic beeswax to create an ointment.
Used to promote healing of the skin for persons with itchy eczema or psoriasis.
Locally made natural pine tar is derived from slowly burning down pine wood until a pure charcoal product is created. The natural moisture (water) and tar (charred resins) will drip from this charcoal which is then collected and strained for use. An unnatural asphalt tar is used in pharmaceutical products for eczema, thus spurring Rtemisia to make a natural product for alternative use.
Pine tar's mechanism of action; reduction in mitotic (cell replication) activity and DNA synthesis of abnormal skin cell production, Rtemisia's 'Eczema Salve' works by activating normal skin keratinisation in relation to the development of normal epidermis (top skin layer cell development).
Neem kernel is blended into this soothing skin product for its antifungal and antimicrobial actions, as eczema and psorsasis can become infected when itched and bacterium is introduced to the open skin.
