Psoria…what?

You may have noticed that we mention Psoriasis a lot on this blog, and you might have wondered what exactly are those Ontos people talking about? Glad you asked! Because that is exactly what this post is all about.

Psoriasis is a chronic, autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. Basically, the immune system sends out faulty signals that cause accelerated growth in skin cells. A normal skin cell matures and then falls off the body in about 28 to 30 days, but a skin cell with Psoriasis takes only 3 or 4 days to mature, and then piles up on top of the skin to form lesions. Psoriasis is also associated with other medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, depression, and psoriatic arthritis.

There are five major types of Psoriasis: Plaque, Guttate, Inverse, Pustular, and Erythrodermic. Plaque is the most common, with about 80 percent of those who have Psoriasis having this type. Raised, inflamed, and red lesions covered in white scales form and are called Plaques. These commonly show up on the elbows, knees, and lower back, but can show up all over the body, even the scalp. Guttate is the next most common type of Psoriasis, and usually shows up in children and young adults. This is characterized by small red drops, often on the trunk and limbs. It is thought that strep throat might be a trigger of Guttate Psoriasis. Inverse is a little different in that it appears in folds of skin, such as the armpits. It also looks smooth and shiny instead of scaly, but is also red, inflamed and tender. Pustular has pus-filled bumps that form on top of already red and inflamed skin. It usually appears in waves; one outbreak will clear up, and another will start the process over again. It can be localized in areas like the hands and feet, or can cover most of the body. It is rare, since less than 5% of those who have Psoriasis have this type. The last type, Erythrodermic, can appear all over the body, and can lead to hospitalization. This is characterized by red, inflamed skin, and the shedding of white sheets of skin instead of smaller flakes. It can cause dehydration, and impair the body’s ability to regulate body temperature.

But how exactly do people get Psoriasis? No one really knows for sure, but there are a few things that scientists have figured out. First, Psoriasis is not contagious. One will not get Psoriasis by coming into contact with someone who already has it. Second, Psoriasis seems to be caused by a combination of genetics and triggers. People can have genes that make them predisposed to Psoriasis, but that does not mean they will necessarily get Psoriasis. It really seems like a person gets Psoriasis only if they have the right combination of genes and an external trigger that sets it off. These triggers can be stress, medication (or by abruptly stopping a medication), illness, or an injury to the skin.

As of yet, there is no cure for Psoriasis. Researchers and the National Psoriasis Foundation actively search for both a cure and more information about the disease. There are multiple options for controlling Psoriasis, including Topicals, Phototherapy, and Systemics. Topicals are applied directly to the skin, and often include Corticosteroids. Ontos’ Noble Formula, which has proven effective in fighting the symptoms of Psoriasis, would be considered Topical medication. Compounding Noble Formula with prescribed corticosteroid, dramatically increases that effectiveness. Phototherapy involves controlled exposure to ultraviolet light on a regular basis. Even the sun can be helpful, but only if sunburns are avoided! Systemics are medications that are taken either in pill, injection or IV form.

Now that you have had a crash course in what Psoriasis is, here are a few websites with great information about this disease (in fact, we used them to check our facts and figures!): The National Psoriasis Foundation at www.psoriasis.org, and the Psoriasis page on the Everyday Health site at www.everydayhealth.com/psoriasis/psoriasis-treatment.aspx. Another good source of information is The American Academy of Dermatoloy, at www.aad.org. We’ve placed links to these websites on the main page of our blog to make them easier to find. These are great resources, and we encourage everyone to get informed about Psoriasis. Feel free to ask us questions too!

Kid Sister

Sorry we are late on our discussion about Noble Formula Spray’s “kid sister”, Noble Formula Cream. But we’re here now!

By calling Noble Formula Cream “Noble Formula Spray’s kid sister”, we do not mean that it is not as effective, but that Noble Formula Cream is a different, gentler version of our “Big Product on Campus”. The Cream is very effective for use on the face or other sensitive areas where a spray would be less desirable. Want to hear how successful this cream is? It controls itching, redness, irritation, scaling and flaking – it’s great for fighting those symptoms of psoriasis, eczema, lichen planus, seborrheic dermatitis and other hyperkeratotic skin conditions! And what’s even more exciting to us here at Ontos, with this over-the-counter product, most clients report good results within 4-6 weeks ! We know of no other non-prescription product that works as well.

Just like its big brother, Noble Formula Spray, Noble Formula Cream can be combined with a doctor prescribed steroid (usually clobetasol to .05%) for extra symptom fighting power! This is only available with a doctor’s prescription and compounded by a licensed pharmacist. 96% of respondents claim good to excellent results with this more potent Rx version.

Noble Formula Cream comes in handy sized 4 oz. containers. It contains .25% Pyrithione Zinc (ZnP), as well as Almond Oil, Rose Hip Oil, and Natural Vitamin E. We invite you to check out how wonderful this satisfaction guaranteed product is. Already use Noble Formula? Tell us how it works for you!

Big Product on Campus

If there is one product that rules the roost around here, it would be the Noble Formula Spray.  Not only does it fight the symptoms of skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema on its own, but it can also team up with physician prescribed corticosteroid (often clobetasol to 0.05%) to really knock those symptoms  on their…rear.

Noble Formula Spray comes in a 4 fl. oz. pump spray, with an optional applicator tip.  Noble Formula is a pyrithione zinc product enhanced by sodium lauryl sulfate and isopropyl myristate.  It works wonders, controlling itching, redness, irritation, scaling, and flaking!  Being in a spray form makes it easy to apply almost anywhere on the body, but take care not to get it in your eyes.  The cone shaped applicator tip is perfect for use on the scalp.

When that extra punch is needed, Noble Formula can be compounded with a prescribed steroid -creating what we call, for convenience, Noble Formula Rx.   This is only available with a doctor’s prescription and compounded by a licensed pharmacist.  The results are incredible, with improvement of symptoms of psoriasis, eczema, and seborrheic dermatitis often achieved in a few weeks.   If you go to our website: http://www.4myskin.com and look at the first page, there are multiple pictures of Noble Formula Rx in action.  96% of respondents claim good to excellent results.

The best part about Noble Formula is its guarantee – satisfaction or money back, no quibble.  Come back tomorrow to hear about the Cream form!  But that’s all we’re going to say now…don’t want to spoil the surprise.

♪♫♪Splish, Splash I was taking a bath!♪♫♪

Spend any time at Ontos, and you’ll figure out that all who work here have a lot in common.  A love of music is right at the top of the list.  Whether someone is walking around whistling, or others are taking turns singing the lines of an Old Hymn, music is always part of this office.  So just thinking about talking about our soap immediately brought this old song to mind.

We would like to introduce you to our Noble Formula Olive Oil Bar Soap with Pyrithione Zinc.  It’s a mouthful, but then again, a great soap needs a descriptive name.  We think the description on the box says it all: “A gently exfoliating, moisturizing bar soap containing olive and emu oils.”  The Noble Formula bar soap is handmade and shaped by hand, but no bar weighs less than 3.25 oz. 

The ingredients are:  Saponified Olive Oil infused with calendula, Saponified Emu Oil, 2% Pyrithione Zinc Oatmeal.   The Pyrithione Zinc is effective in combating flake, itch, and dandruff.  The soap was especially formulated for those with psoriasis, eczema and dry skin, but it is excellent for any skin, regardless of condition or type.  All of us use the soap, and love how it keeps our skin clear and moisturized.  Many of our friends and families regularly use the soap too.  So when we say that we recommend our soap…we really mean it!
