Skin Cream Alert

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Short Story By Gabrielle Mullarkey -

Some skin creams con­tain­ing herbal prod­ucts may be harm­ful, ac­cord­ing to Bri­tish der­ma­tol­o­gists who tested a small sam­ple of prod­ucts be­ing used by pa­tients for con­di­tions such as eczema and pso­ri­a­sis. Many did not con­tain a de­tailed list of in­gre­di­ents – flout­ing EU la­belling reg­u­la­tions – and some con­tained su­per-strength steroids that can dam­age skin if not used ap­pro­pri­ately. So, be­fore spend­ing money on a ‘mir­a­cle cure’, ask your­self why it’s not avail­able on the NHS.
