With extensive backgrounds in the cosmetics & healthcare industries, we’ve learned much about the harmful ingredients in most skin care products and the resulting side effects. And as doting parents and friends of sufferers with different skin disorders, we became increasingly concerned with the lack of skin-friendly products.
It was at that point we realized — hey, maybe we should do something about it!
During our research & development process, we explored the impact of a common underlying issue of most skin disorders: the overgrowth of harmful bacteria. From our research, we surmised that the overpopulation of skin-straining bacteria and other pathogens can overwhelm the skin’s own defenses and greatly worsen symptoms, while inhibiting the skin’s ability to heal itself. And to regenerate, the skin needed continuous all-day antimicrobial protection, while preserving the skin’s microflora (a protective layer of microorganisms that are essential to maintaining healthy skin). Until fully restored, anything short of continuous protection left the skin exposed to re-population of bacteria, especially on sensitive skin.
Long story short, you could say we’re supporting our body’s own natural defense systems & built-in pharmacy, as opposed to trying to replace it. We believe this is a more responsible approach to skincare than using harsh ingredients that can strip healthy organisms (or microflora) that our skin relies upon to maintain a healthy and balanced appearance.
In support of our findings, many people started to report positive results in as few as 3-4 days. Most surprising still, were the number of people who claimed they’d been suffering for years with chronic skin conditions for which nothing else they tried had worked, until they tried our cream.
Clients suffering from skin conditions impacted by bacteria, such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and Hidradenitis Suppurativa (or acne inversa) all report improvements in the overall appearance of their skin. And the list just keeps growing.
With the help of our clients, it has become clear to us that Zyderma HS was useful well beyond our initial scope and intentions.
To all of our clients, we say a big THANK YOU! You have been awesome in helping us find our true direction. We look forward to working with you all on our next product development.
