Dermalex products are made by Omega Labs, a well-established South African OTC pharmaceuticals company. As well as skincare products, the company manufactures a range of other medicines and hygiene products, such as wart-removal formulas, pregnancy tests, hay fever treatments, and head lice repellents.
Dermalex is its primary skincare brand, with a range of creams and gels specifically formulated for psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea.
These are steroid-free and paraben-free treatments, designed to help sufferers of dry skin conditions relieve their symptoms and repair the skin’s natural barrier to protect against future flare-ups. They can be used by most adults and some can be used by children.
At HelloSkin we focus on the psoriasis treatments offered by Dermalex: a non-greasy cream for use on large areas of the body and a gel for scalp psoriasis.
Both treatments are safe for long-term application. They can be used on their own, or in conjunction with other treatments for management of psoriasis. Their active ingredients limit evaporation of water from the skin’s surface and help to attract water from the deeper skin layers, thereby rehydrating the dry plaques that are characteristic of psoriatic skin.
With frequent use these products will relieve itching, scaling, and redness, and improve the appearance of the psoriasis patches.
