Psoriasis is a chronic Skin condition marked by red, itchy, scaly patches. It's one of the most common autoimmune diseases in the country today. Psoriasis develops when faulty signals in the immune system cause new skin cells to form too rapidly. The body can't shed these excess cells so they pile up and cause unsightly scales to form. While there is currently no "cure" for psoriasis, the latest research indicates that healthy skin starts with a healthy microbiome. Contrary to popular belief, psoriasis is not contagious.
One of the easiest home treatments for psoriasis is to keep your skin moisturized. Traditional creams, soaps, and ointments contain pine tar or neem oil, among other things. Commercial soaps can be very harsh and drying and can actually worsen the symptoms of psoriasis, but our moisturizing Pine Tar Neem Oil Soap does just the opposite.
Creosote free pine tar has been known to soothe the itching and flaking while anti-inflammatory neem oil is said to reduce swelling, itching, and redness. Both are believed to fight germs that become trapped in scratched, raw skin, helping to keep the skin free of infection. Our clients tell us that A Wild Soap Bar's Pine Tar Neem Oil Soap is an effective home treatment for psoriasis and eczema. They also say it works as a dandruff shampoo bar as well as a deodorant bar.
