Rosacea Skin and Hair Care
Rosacea is one of the most common skin conditions out there. Most often occurring in the face, rosacea can also affect the chest, neck, scalp, and ears. Typically, it begins any time after the age of thirty as redness that comes and goes, but it can quickly take a turn for the worse if left untreated. That initial redness can lead to a variety of yet worse symptoms: visible blood vessels; red bumps and pimples; thickening and enlargement of skin, especially around the nose; and eye irritation including a watery or bloodshot appearance and burning or stinging. Severe cases can even result in swelling, raised red plaques of skin, and even corneal damage and vision loss.
Treatment of rosacea varies from person to person, but most often includes a variety of oral and topical medicines. In certain cases lasers or surgery can be used, but in all cases treatment can quickly get messy and expensive, between potential side effects and pricey prescriptions. One thing shown to help control rosacea is a gentle skin care routine. That’s where pHat 5.5 comes in.
In response to the need for a rosacea-appropriate skin care regime, pHat 5.5 developed this line of skin and hair care products specifically formulated to sooth rosacea symptoms as well as nourish the skin to help prevent future flare-ups. Created without any sulfates, parabens, alcohol, fragrance, petroleum, or gluten, which are all proven to be irritants and potentially harmful, these products are as gentle as possible and find their power in the most effective ingredients nature has to offer.
Most notable in our lineup of natural and organic superfoods, and included in all products, are manuka honey, aloe vera, and cehami. Manuka honey is so powerful a healer that it has recently been approved for medical use in hospitals to treat wounds and repair damaged skin. Additionally, it has potent antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties making it an effective cleanser as well. Combine that with its anti-inflammatory capabilities and antioxidants, and it becomes clear that this isn’t just any old honey. Aloe vera is also a powerful healer, remarkable in its anti-inflammatory qualities and its ability to sooth burned or damaged skin. Most famous for its use in treating sunburns, aloe is actually loaded with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants—meaning it doesn’t just promote healing, but also infuses the skin with an impressive blend of nutrition to help keep your skin at its healthiest. Cehami, a botanical from Australia, joins these two with its own potent anti-inflammatory, restorative, and regenerative abilities. These three combine to make a strong, yet soothing, formula which calms rosacea symptoms and nourishes your skin and hair at the same time.
Last, but certainly not least, is the fact that all of our products are carefully pH balanced to match the native level of the skin and scalp at 5.5. Many other products are too alkaline, which can be aggravating to the skin and can even cause mild burns. By keeping the pH level at 5.5, the skin’s natural protector, the acid mantle, is maintained, and thus a friendlier environment for healing is created.
pHat 5.5 has carefully worked to make these products perfect not only for the care of rosacea, but also for the skin and hair in general. Our products help your skin and hair get back to their native, beautiful state in as healthy and gentle a way as possible.
