PureHealPlus is a potent cosmetic formulation that combines Seaberry essential oil with a specially formulated silicone gel to soften and improve the appearance scars. A quick study of Seaberry’s essential oil composition reveals some of the highest concentrations of biologically beneficial compounds in nature, all packed into one tiny berry! Its benefits have been referenced in ancient Greek texts, classic Tibetan medicinal texts and in traditional Chinese medicine for its properties in the treatment of skin wounds, burns and other skin ailments.
[THE SCIENCE OF SEABERRY]
Seaberry oil contains potent phytomolecular compounds that are naturally anti-oxidant, anti-viral and anti-microbial, giving skin tissue an unprecedented advantage to stabilize and regenerate.
Unsaturated fatty acids: Seabuckthorn contains high levels of Omega-7 which is an important skin component that helps to prevent wounds, scratches, and burns.
Phytosterols – beta-sitsterol is naturally anti-inflammatory and assists in skin repair.
Tocopherols– (natural form of Vitamin E). Which is an Anti-oxidant which minimizes skin oxidation resulting in decreased healing time, and increases the breaking strength of wounds.
Carotenoids (natural form of Vitamin A) – which helps in collagen synthesis, helps in proper wound epithelization and is a powerful free radical scavenger minimizing damage caused by harmful UV-B rays on the skin.
Flavonoids – Have anti-inflammatory properties and helps in promoting healing of wound and ulcers.
Vitamins B1, B2, B6: improves moisture retention, reduces the effects of atopic dermatitis
Triterpenes: citroostadienol, which has strong anti-inflammatory activity.
[THE SCIENCE OF SILICONE]
Silicone has long been shown to scientifically improve the appearance and soften scars. It improves the hydration in the top layers of the skin, promotes the production of growth factors and keeps bacteria away.
Hydration – it increases the hydration the top layer of skin
Protection – prevents bacterial contamination and decreases bacteria-induced excessive collagen production in the scar tissue.
Growth factors – it affects the activity of important growth factors in the scar which help with collagen synthesis
Symptom relief – it reduces itching and discomfort associated with scars
Appearance – it affects keloid formation reducing redness and thickness.
[CLINICAL STUDY OF PUREHEALPLUS]
Thirty patients were asked to fill out a questionnaire after they completed a course of [PH+] application. All patients included in the study used [PH+] on a regular basis. The satisfaction rate was 100%. Patients used [PH+] on surgical incisions, keloids, old scars, burns and pigments (dark) scars. 100% of patients saw an improvement.
Surgical Incisions 54.1% improvement,
Keloids/Old Scars 46% improvement,
Pigmented Scars/Burns 75% improvement.
Over 96% of the patients would recommend PH+ Scar Gel to friends and family.
[PHOTOCHROMIC SCAR ANALYSIS]
Independent lab analysis of the scars appearance over 8 weeks of use of PH+ scar gel. The results as follows: 64.29% lighter color; 79.17% less redness; 55.51% scar area reduction; 27.66% scar width reduction.
[C-SECTION SCAR ANALYSIS]
The improvement in scar appearance as follows: 50% lighter color; 56.25% less redness; 39.45% total scar reduction.
[VISUAL GRADING SCALE]
Efficacy study performed by an independent dermatologist. A modification of the Visual Analog Scale was used by the clinician to document their perception of the scar appearance over 8 weeks of topical application.
