Those susceptible to rosacea seem to be genetically predisposed to have colonization of certain microbes and have high levels of pro-inflammatories.
Research shows the following as triggers of rosacea: certain microbes and markedly increased level of pro-inflammatories like the protein cathelicidin.
Cathelicdins are vital to innate immunity, being broad-spectrum antimicrobial, chemotactic and angiogenic, which are all traits that contribute to being PRO inflammatory.
Red Better Flare-Up Balm tackles all these with:
- Monolaurin, monocaprin + monocaprylate (coconut fatty-acid-derived anti-microbials): target demodex folluculorum, Helicobacter pyloris and other rosacea-triggering microbes.
- Several anti-inflammatories: potassium azeloyl diglycinate (a gentler azelaic acid derivative which also reduces cathelicidins), monolaurin + antioxidants.
- Sulfur: proven treatment for rosacea-related papules and pustules.
- All in a rich, deeply hydrating + soothing balm.
Also ideal for irritations, inflammations, redness, bites, itching, rashes + microbial infections from allergic/irritant reactions; seborrheic dermatitis, rosacea, eczema, atopic/contact dermatitis + some other medically-managed conditions.
The star of our Red Better Redness + Inflammation Calming system, this steroid-free salve boasts some of the latest, gentlest and effective technology to soothe away—sans steroids—various inflammations.
