This time during the biggest seborrheic dermatitis outbreak I’ve ever experienced, I tested body and face moisturiser Zeoderm from Salcura. It contains anti-bacterial and anti-fungal ingredients coming from natural sources.
Zeoderm contains only natural ingredients, one of them being volcanic zeolite. Zeolite minerals occur naturally in rocks and clay, but can be also produced industrially. Regarding its medical and cosmetic purposes it is known to maintain correct pH levels, absorbs toxins and free radicals, thus soothing and calming the skin.
The cream is recommended for people suffering from such skin problems as eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis and dry and itchy skin.
I’ve been using Zeoderm for two months now. In fact, I used it for five days only since I experienced that my face skin has become symptoms free already after first use. I then stopped applying the cream in order to check whether the symptoms would occur again. To my surprise my skin has been much better since then. I know already when it has a tendency to get seborrheic dermatitis outbreaks i.e. when my immune system gets weaker or shortly before my period. I applied it once again after a month when I sensed that the symptoms might be on their way back. So far I’m very much satisfied with the outcome.
Relieves seborrheic dermatitis symptoms
Relieves Itchy and dry skin quickly
- It leaves a little sticky feeling on the skin during first 2 or 3 hours
- Lid very hard to open and close (it might be just mine though)
Worth knowing – ingredients decoded:
- Phenoxyethanol – preservative used in cosmetics
- Ethylhexlglycerin – preservative; relatively new on the market therefore more data is still not available
- Sodium Cetearyl Sulfate – foaming and cleansing agent
Please note that it is always best to test a particular cosmetic on your own skin since any ingredient might cause allergy in some individuals. The chemical compounds listed above have a score between 0 – 1 according to Environmental Working Group, which means that they are generally safe to use, if coming from good sources and not exceeding allowed doses.
In my opinion Zeoderm is a much better choice than some of the ointments recommended by doctors, especially than those that contain steroids and cortisones.
Although according to the manufacturer Zeoderm can be used all the time, also by children over 6 months, I myself use it only occasionally when I need it, and not instead of daily moisturiser.
