Description

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.

Ingredients

The ingredients in M-Folia Ointment are:

  • Aqua
  • Glycerine
  • Prunus dulcis
  • Mahonia (Berberis) aquifolium
  • Cetearyl alcoholpolysorbate 80
  • Sorbitan oleate
  • Carylic capric triglycerides
  • Tocopheryl acetate
  • Isopropyl myristate
  • Glyceryl monostearate
  • Buxus chinensis
  • Phenchem
  • Polysorabate 80
  • Citric acid

Directions

M-Folia Ointment is generally best applied 2-3 times daily, but follow the instructions from your doctor for your specific routine. Apply directly to patches of dry skin in the same direction as hair growth.

For best results, leave on at least 15 minutes. Ideally, apply the cream at bedtime and leave on overnight.

Precautions

Store M-Folia Ointment in a cool, dark place away from the reach of children. Use it within 12 weeks of opening.

It is for external use only. Take extra care when applying to the face, as contact with the eyes may result in irritation.

Check the list of ingredients and avoid using if you have a known hypersensitivity. If you experience an initial skin reaction when first using this ointment, this is not unusual. Reddening of skin lesions may occur, and skin may flake off more. This is part of the healing process of psoriatic skin, especially when used after steroidal treatments. However, if this reaction lasts more than a week, consult your skin specialist.

Side Effects

When first using M-Folia Ointment it may initially result in extra skin lesion redness and more flaking than usual. This usually resolves within a week. No interactions with other medications have been reported.

Research & Evidence

For people with Psoriasis

HelloSkin’s experts were unable to find clinical data on the use of M-Folia Ointment in people with psoriasis. However, the product contains glycerin and mahonia aquifolium. A clinical study has shown that after 12 weeks treatment, an emollient with mahonia (Berberis) Aquifolium compared with a placebo can improve disease severity in people with mild to moderate psoriasis (1).

Also, glycerin is found naturally in healthy skin where it helps attract and bind water from the deeper skin layers, thereby helping to keep the skin well hydrated and moist (2).

For people with Eczema

HelloSkin’s experts have not been able to find any clinical data on the use of M-Folia Ointment in people with atopic eczema. However, the product contains glycerin which is found naturally in the skin where it helps attract and retain water from the deeper skin layers. Thereby glycerin is important for moisturising and hydrating the skin (2).

OBS! This product contains a vary of different natural ingredients: Prunus Dulcis, Mahonia (Berberis) aquifolium, buxus chinensis, that can cause adverse reactions in people with atopic dermatitis due to a higher risk of sensitivity.
