Dry, itchy and flaky skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis can affect people of all ages, including babies and children. The symptoms, which can be mild or severe, have been around for centuries yet there is still no complete cure. Treating these conditions is tricky and for sufferers can be a case of trial and error when searching for the right skincare to soothe and help heal their sore, irritated and often cracked skin.
Now that the NHS has diminishing funds, research into alternative therapies for skin problems may be left on the back burner, making it harder to find a treatment that doesn’t include steroid creams. Parents often despair when their little ones develop eczema, with the itch-scratch-itch cycle leaving them both distraught and desperate for a natural solution.
The power of Dead Sea minerals is unrivalled with their calming and healing properties well known. Malki’s 100% natural Dead Sea minerals skin and bodycare harnesses all of this skin-soothing goodness while leaving out the aggravating chemicals often hidden in other skincare products.
Many eczema sufferers claim that various detergents cause their delicate skin to flare up but have found the pure vegetable oil and mineral-rich Malki skincare products to help ease and relieve symptoms.
The gentle soaps, bath salts, washes and lotions contain nothing more than natural olive, coconut and palm oils blended together with minerals including potassium, magnesium and sulphur. They’re free from sodium lauryl sulphate, an irritating foaming agent, paraben preservatives and lanolin, a wax extracted from sheep’s glands. They also contain no synthetic fragrances or colourings.
Malki Dead Sea products are not a miracle cure but they have gained a cult following from eczema, psoriasis and acne sufferers over the past 20 years who’ve found relief in their soothing mineral ingredients.
