M-Folia Ointment is suitable for all types of psoriasis and eczema, with its emollient and anti-fungal properties improving the condition of dry, scaly skin.
The ointment contains an extract of Mahonia Aquifolium (Oregon grape) as its active ingredient. This is derived from the North American flowering plant and it is a known reliever of symptoms associated with psoriasis. It contains berberin and oxycanthin, which are strong anti-microbial agents, as well as powerful antioxidants.
As well as its protective antifungal effect, this ointment’s white paraffin base helps to moisturise and soften the skin, leaving a protective film over it that helps to prevent evaporation and further water loss from the skin. As the skin rehydrates, dry patches become softer, smoother, and suppler, leaving it looking and feeling healthier and more comfortable. Results are generally seen within 12 weeks.
It has a slightly greasy texture, which is normal for ointments. It is suitable for use all over the body, including the face, and it can be used as a night treatment.
