Salcura natural skin therapy for problematic skin
Right on my birthday in December I received an email that I’d almost overlook, if it wouldn’t mention natural remedies and different skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. When I came to live in a big city with lots of pollution I started to notice some unpleasant skin conditions like eczema and mild psoriasis on my scalp and forehead that didn’t stop although taking care on different levels like healthy eating, drinking water, thorough skin care,…So you might understand that the email caught my attention. I gave a look at the website and decided to keep the contact and get more information about the brand.
Review of Salcura shampoo and conditioner
These 2 products really helped to change my scalp condition! I had problems with dry and flakey skin on my scalp in the front part of the head, that started to expand even on my forehead. On the forehead it sometimes turned into red, thankfully without itching. But as you can imagine, it didn’t look pleasant and I couldn’t wear any foundation on the forehead neither because it looked bad and I wanted my skin to repair. When I tried these 2 hair products for the first time they gave a real relief to my scalp. Usually, although using other organic shampoos, my scalp was dry and red after washing the hair. After using the shampoo and the conditioner I immediately saw the difference, at least my skin didn’t turn red and was less flakey. Not to mention that the conditioner is awesome, you can comb the hair so easy after!
Regarding ingredients, it does not contain any SLS, parabens, perfumes, colourings. It has a delicate scent; a mix of herbal extracts and natural oils. It has a dense, yellow texture, almost oily. What I like is that both shampoo and conditioner contain Sea Buckthorn berries and Starflower essential oil. The first contains Omega’s 3, 6, 7 & 9 and the second, called also Borage oil is rich in the fatty acid Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA). Argan Oil is added to moisturise and protect. These ingredients, in partnership with other natural vitamins, minerals and oils are specially blended to promote skin cell tissue regeneration and moisturisation.
Salcura DermaSerum and Zeoderm moisturizer
Since at that time my skin was becoming very flakey and irritated even on the forehead, I decided to give a try to this 2 step treatment in form of cream. They really helped me a lot to reduce the flakey skin condition and calm the redness. especially important for me was that I can put something light in texture that wouldn’t be harsh. There are 2 steps with this treatment; the first is called DermaSerum and it is a light serum texture that is applied as a first step. I find it very useful to apply on scalp too. There the effect was evident immediately. This serum has a light scent, where I mostly note tea tree and eucalyptus scent. It feels refreshing and somehow disinfective too. It contains mainly vegetable oils from: Sunflower, Safflower, Grape Vine, Sea Buckthorn, Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Orange, Lavender, Olive, Almond Camphor Tree Leaf Oil, Rosemary and Peppermint Oil along with aloe vera.
The second step is the Zeoderm moisturizer that I needed for additional moisturising. This cream that comes in a 50ml tube, has a denser and more rich texture and it really helps the skin to renew itself. I found it great combined with the serum, that goes applied before the cream. These 2 steps help the skin to renew itself quicker. This cream contains a special ingredient Natural zeolite which forms where volcanic rocks and ash layers react with alkaline groundwater and is used to bind and eliminate skin toxins. It’s extremely beneficial for damaged; dry, inflamed and irritated skin cells and connective tissue. I applied the cream a few times per day in the beginning and less and less later. Of course the skin needs its time to renew and so the results are visible gradually, but effectively. I still have both creams and if needed I’ll apply them on the skin if it’d react, but I don’t see the need to do it now since the skin condition has improved in 2 moths now. I have used it in December and January.
Stretch Mark Therapy Cream and Oil
Although I don’t have any stretch marks, they were very kind to send me also these 2 products; Salcura Gotu Kola & Wild Rose Stretch Mark Oil and Salcura Rose hip & Green bean Stretch mark cream. I like very much the consistency of both products; very light in texture and with almost no scent. The body oil is dry and it absorbs incredibly quick while massaging it into the skin. After I use the cream which is very light too there is at first some white texture but then it soon disappears with massaging it. Salcura claims the hero ingredients in the oil are Elestan (Manilkara Multinervis Leaf Extract) which helps to reduce the visibility of stretch marks, Wild Rose that quenches dry skin and Gotu Kola improves wound healing. I cannot give a full opinion here, because I don’t have stretch marks, but I found those 2 products pleasant and very tonifying on the skin.
