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 The Emu Oil has been replaced by a mixture of Mango Butter and Cocoa Butter.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.

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.

Ring, Ring

Getting tired of soap? Soap is a necessity, of course, but soap is plain. Body cleanser… Now that has a ring to it!

Our Noble Mystique Body Cleanser is a low-lather, natural soap substitute. It contains Walnut Husk to help exfoliate and Oil of Spearmint to give it a pleasant, but not overpowering, fragrance. It also contains Balm Mint Extract, Chamomile Extract, and Mistletoe Extract, to give your skin the best possible care – and the possibility of a kiss on Christmas. 😉 This body cleanser gently cleans and moisturizes at the same time!
Noble Mystique Body Cleanser maintains the skin’s natural pH, relieves dryness and itching, and leaves you smelling fresh. Just apply a quarter-size amount to a sponge/loofa (the mesh type works best) and scrub gently.

We also like to point out that this product contains no animal ingredients, nor has it been tested on animals. It comes in a 16 oz., flip-top bottle, and lasts through many baths and showers. So if you want a change from regular bar soap, try the Noble Mystique Body Cleanser and add a little ring to your daily routine.

Invisible Gloves

Wouldn’t it be nice to have gloves on all the time? Think about it. Gloves can keep your hands protected from the jobs of the day, but gloves are also very impractical. They make it hard to do anything involving fine motor skills, like typing. Can you imagine trying to type with gloves on that don’t quite fit your fingers? Not to mention how dry your hands feel upon exiting said gloves. Ontos, Inc. offers “invisible gloves” that protect the skin from moisture-robbing irritants: Gloves in a Bottle.

The idea behind Gloves in a Bottle is surprisingly simple. The top layer of skin is basically made up of dead skin cells, lipids (fat), and natural oils. The natural moisture of the skin is located within the second layer of skin. Most lotions put moisture on top of the skin, tricking the skin into thinking it is properly moisturized. This leads to the skin producing less moisture. Plus, most lotions wash off, leaving your skin dry and unprotected. Gloves in a Bottle does NOT wash off, nor does it leave your skin vulnerable to outside irritants.

Gloves in a Bottle binds to the top layer of skin, creating a barrier that keeps moisture in and the bad stuff out, helping you retain natural moisture. It sloughs off naturally with skin cells and is almost impossible to feel once it dries. Gloves in a Bottle also helps with cracked or dry feet, elbows, and knees. For best results, reapply every 4 hours.

Gloves in a Bottle is available in a 2 oz travel-size, or an 8 oz. bottle, through Ontos, Inc. Only a small amount is needed with each application to give you the protection your skin needs. For more information, please feel free to check out our website: http://www.4myskin.com.

Invisible gloves”… How much better could it get?

Disclaimer: Gloves in a Bottle should NOT replace actual gloves.

Merry Christmas!

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!
