Psoriasis is a common, often inherited, skin disorder that occurs when the production rate of new skin cells is accelerated. The result is raised patches of pink, thick, new skin covered with flakes of dead skin. This acceleration seems to occur in connection with stress, emotional problems, infections or other illnesses.
Medical science has not yet solved the riddle of psoriasis or identified what causes it. The main treatment doctors are able to offer for psoriasis is the application of cortisone-based products. Although these relieve symptoms for periods of time, side-effects normally include damaged skin and patients are faced with using cortisone for the rest of their lives. (Source www.aromantic.co.uk)

Soothing Serum is derived from botanical oils which can penetrate down into the skin resulting in a moisture retaining effect. This may help break the cycle of psoriases prone skin conditions.
Smitten products unique moisture restoring capabilities is what makes them effective in the struggle against Dermatitsis, Psorisis and Eczema.
By promoting healthy skin by way of repair and moisture retention the cycle of these conditions can be broken.
The Smitten products improve the skin’s barrier function by locking and sealing moisture in improving moisture retention. Their balancing blend of oils renews the skin’s texture. Once this happens the broken skin has time to repair and strengthen itself, which can make these conditions easier to manage.
Many skin and body care preparations contain highly toxic and irritating ingredients (SLS and parabens to name just two) from which people endure allergic reactions and other skin sensitivities.
Our skin care products are free from mineral oils which block and clog pores and are detrimental to the skin - nor do we use harmful chemicals which can irritate the skin, stripping it of its natural protection and upsetting the PHhbalance.
Smittens body butters and lotions will help repair damaged skin tissue through the moisture retaining qualities of carefully chosen organic ingredients.
We have included Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Junipberry and Chamomile in our Smitten Care products because they are known for their soothing qualities. Smitten body butters are so lovely and rich that they ‘lock in’ the moisture and create a barrier to help prevent the skin shedding.
