ITCHING is an important protective sensation experienced by the body when the skin is irritated. It triggers a scratching reflex which temporarily brings relief but can also cause further irritation, inflammation and infection of the skin.
Itchy skin is often caused by inflammation, as is the case in atopic dermatitis (eczema). The anti-inflammatory effects of black seed oil and TQ help soothe the itch while, nourishing oils such as argan oil and jojoba oil help repair inflamed skin.
Credé Skin Balm is effective in soothing itchy skin because black cumin seed oil has strong anti-inflammatory properties. Argan oil and jojoba oil help soothe and repair damaged skin. Credé Skin Balm is therefore a natural alternative to steroid creams often prescribed for itchy skin conditions.
Depending on the itchy areas of the skin, other parts of our range may also be effective in alleviating the itchy skin symptoms. In particular, our Black Seed Soap, and Cleansing Milk have been designed to be gentle for skin that is sensitive, inflamed or damaged.
