THE SCIENCE OF TALLOW
The active ingredient in ZERO BS is TALLOW — rendered fat from grass-fed free-range cows.
Tallow is nutrient rich — packed with naturally-occurring Vitamins A, D, K & E. Plus, it contains fat soluble activators, Omega 3 and antioxidants.
Our skin produces Sebum, a 55% saturated fat that functions as a barrier layer, to moisturise and protect your skin.
Daily washing strips the skin of this natural moisturiser. The skin is left vulnerable to a number of conditions, for example excessive dryness.
Tallow, with its 55% saturated fat profile, has an almost identical molecular structure to our sebum. This compatibility makes Tallow the perfect replacement for our skin's barrier layer.
Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes red, itchy scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, trunk and scalp.
Psoriasis is a common, long-term (chronic) disease with no cure. It tends to go through cycles, flaring for a few weeks or months, then subsiding for a while or going into remission. Treatments are available to help you manage symptoms. And you can incorporate lifestyle habits and coping strategies to help you live better with psoriasis.
Psoriasis types are typically identified by their hallmark appearances.
- Red or pink patches of skin covered with thick, silvery scales.
- Small scaling spots (commonly seen in children)
- Dry, cracked skin that may bleed or itch.
- Itching, burning or soreness.
Things to avoid:
- Over exposure to the sun can trigger a flare up.
- Limit time spent in pools, hot tubs, or the ocean and rinse off with tap water, then moisturise.
- Cold temperatures and dry air
- Contact with artificial chemicals, dies and perfumes.
- Long hot showers or baths - take short lukewarm showers.
Eczema is sometimes called atopic dermatitis, which is the most common form. “Atopic” refers to an allergy. People with eczema often have allergies or asthma along with itchy, red skin. Atopic dermatitis usually develops in early childhood and is more common in people who have a family history of the condition. Atopic dermatitis is long lasting (chronic) and tends to flare periodically.
There are also some common symptoms for all types of eczema:
- Dry, cracked, scaly, thickened skin
- Rash that typically appears on the arms and behind the knees, but can also appear anywhere.
- Raw, sensitive swollen skin from scratching
- Itching, which may be intense especially at night
Healthy skin helps retain moisture and protects you from bacteria, irritants and allergens. Eczema is related to a gene variation that affects the skin's ability to provide this protection. This allows your skin to be affected by environmental factors, irritants and allergens.
Treatment includes avoiding harsh soaps and other irritants.
Certain creams or ointments may also provide relief from the inflammation and itching.
