VEGAN BAR SOAP with 2% ZnP

Introducing Noble Formula’s NEW VEGAN bar soap with 2% Pyrithione Zinc!

Due to public demand for an animal free version of our Noble Formula Bar Soap with 2% ZnP, we’ve added a new, vegan bar soap to our list of quality skin care products. The Emu Oil has been replaced by a mixture of Mango Butter and Cocoa Butter. Mmmmm! This ‘Mango’ soap mimics the benefits of the original soap, making it a wonderful soap for those with psoriasis, eczema, dry skin…any skin type, really! The oatmeal gently exfoliates, the ZnP fights flaking, itching and dandruff, and the saponified butters and olive oil moisturize while cleaning.

Want the specs? The ingredient list includes: Saponified olive oil infused with calendula, saponified mango butter, ground oatmeal, saponified cocoa butter and pyrithione zinc. Each and every bar is handmade, hand shaped, and weighs no less than 3.25 oz.

We invite you to call us for more information at 1-888-469-7953! Also, check out our website at www.4myskin.com and read our previous blog posts for more information about our full line of Noble Formula products.

AAD 2011: New Orleans

Every year the American Academy of Dermatology holds a convention that brings together doctors and vendors from across the United States and around the world. The 69th Annual Meeting was held this year in New Orleans! Two of our employees flew down to Louisiana for the 3 day convention. They personally talked to over 200 doctors. Here is a look at the convention and New Orleans through their eyes…

Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP): What’s It All About?

Pyrithione Zinc, once known as Zinc Pyrithione, is reputed to have antibacterial and antifungal properties. It was developed in the 1930’s, and has since been used to treat skin conditions such as eczema, vitiligo, athlete’s foot, psoriasis, seborrheic dermatitis, and dandruff. Pyrithione Zinc is the active ingredient in many over-the-counter and prescription products, including all the products in our Noble Formula line. Noble Formula is available in spray, cream, bar soap, and shampoo.

It is not known exactly how Pyrithione Zinc works. It appears to slow the growth of bacteria and fungi on the skin. It is antiseborrheic, which stops or prevents unnecessary secretions (oils) from the sebaceous glands. These oils are what keep the skin and hair soft and oiled, but over productive glands are the cause of seborrheic dermatitis. Some scientists also believe that Pyrithione Zinc slows down cell mitosis, thereby reducing the production of skin cells. This would explain why Pyrithione Zinc helps treat the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.

Pyrithione Zinc is FDA approved for the treatment of seborrheic dermatitis and dandruff, and the FDA regulates the concentration of ZnP contained in a product. Products that are left on the skin have lower concentrations allowed than those products that are meant to be washed off. Noble Formula spray and cream each contain .25% ZnP and Noble Formula soap and shampoo have 2% ZnP. Recommended usages are as follows:

Noble Formula Spray and Cream: Apply to affected areas 1 to 3 times daily or as directed by your doctor. Apply spray 4-6 inches from skin per 3×3 inch area. Treatment should be continued for 1 week after disappearance of symptoms. Use as needed thereafter.

Noble Formula Bar Soap: Apply, lather and rinse. Avoid contact with eyes. If contact occurs, rinse eyes thoroughly with water. Non-drying; use as often as desired.

Noble Formula Shampoo: Apply to wet hair. Massage onto scalp to a lather, rinse and repeat. For best results, let shampoo sit on scalp for 5 minutes. For maximum control, shampoo daily.

World Psoriasis Day 2010

Image from the World Psoriasis Day website


This Friday, October 29, 2010, is World Psoriasis Day. Every year since 2004, when October 29th comes around, the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA) asks the world to join them in recognizing people with Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. This year, they are focusing on Childhood Psoriasis.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that affects the skin. Lesions appear because of the overproduction of skin cells. Instead of maturing over the normal 28-30 days, these skin cells mature in 3-4 days, and then pile up on the skin instead of falling completely off. Psoriasis is not contagious. The cause of Psoriasis is a combination of genetics and “triggers”.

As this year’s theme for World Psoriasis Day points out, Childhood Psoriasis can place a heavy burden on a child. The National Psoriasis Foundation surveyed parents with children who have Psoriasis and/or Psoriatic Arthritis, and found some important statistics:

• Over the past 6 months, 44% of the children surveyed were bullied in some manner, including: teased (83%), left out (44%), called names (27%), threatened (22%), and hit or otherwise physically assaulted (17%).

• 38% of those who were bullied say that they were bullied as a direct result of their Psoriasis.

• On a positive note, Parents responded to their child being bullied by educating people about Psoriasis: 87% educated the teachers/staff of the school their child attends, 65% talked to their child’s friends, and 57% talked to their child’s classmates.

• The psychological impact of Psoriasis can be very negative, especially with the bullying that often occurs. These negative experiences can lead to self-esteem issues and higher anxiety levels in adulthood.

• Children with moderate Psoriasis have a higher chance of obesity than those without Psoriasis.

• Psoriasis can have more negative impact on how a child views him or herself than other childhood diseases, including diabetes, epilepsy and alopecia.

• Approximately 20,000 children are diagnosed with Psoriasis each year.

These statistics show why World Psoriasis Day is so important. The aims of World Psoriasis Day are to Raise Awareness, Improve Access to Treatment, Increase Understanding, and Build Unity.

Please join us this year in celebrating World Psoriasis Day on Friday, October 29th!

But Mom, it Itches!

That burning sensation just cannot be ignored; it starts slowly, sneakily, but before you know it, it has grown to epic proportions and you just have to scratch! And then comes “The Look” from Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Teacher, someone, and all you can say is, “But it itches!” For about 10-20% of the world, Eczema is the culprit of said “itchings”. So we thought some explanation of Eczema was in order.

Eczema produces patches of red, flaky and itchy skin. The worst patches can even ooze liquid. Anyone can get it, but it is not contagious. Eczema is essentially the skin’s oversensitive reaction to a trigger. A trigger can be anything from a “contact allergy”: pet dander, soaps, laundry products, food allergies, stress, and yes, even the fragrance in your favorite perfume or body wash.

Eczema, when present on infants, is often on their scalp, neck, foreheads, cheeks, forearms, and legs. Children and adults usually have eczema on their neck, face, ankles, and inside the elbow and knees. Often children with eczema will outgrow the condition, but some people will have it off and on their entire life.
The most common type of Eczema is Atopic Dermatitis. This type is caused by a reaction to an allergen or irritant. People with this form are also more likely to develop asthma and hay fever. Some Eczema can be caused directly or indirectly by clothes: tight clothes can irritate the skin by rubbing, and certain laundry soaps and detergents can be triggers, as mentioned above.

But there is relief from Eczema! – (other than the scratching that never seems to really help anyway). Of course, try to stay away from things that might cause your skin irritation. Since Eczema leads to dry skin, make sure to keep your skin moisturized. Take warm baths and showers instead of hot, follow with an application of a good moisturizing cream. Emu-Lac, which we blogged about a couple weeks ago, is a terrific moisturizer. Noble Formula products were specifically created to combat itching, redness, irritation, scaling and flaking (just like it says on the bottle!). It has a great track record and a ‘satisfaction or money back-no quibble’ guarantee. So next time you just have to scratch…grab a bottle of Noble Formula instead.
