Skin Tonic is herbal formula designed to improve and alleviate skin problems from the inside-out. Excellent for acne, eczema, psoriasis and boils. Works great in conjunction with the Eczema Balm (also available on this website).
Burdock – Arctium lappa
Burdock has a long history of effective use in chronic skin disorders such as eczema and psoriasis, acne and boils. It helps improve the elimination systems of the body.
Echinacea blend – Echinacea angustifolia / purpurea
The immune modulating / enhancing properties of echinacea combined with depurative, anti-inflammatory, lymphatic and wound healing actions make it a perfect herb for skin conditions – particularly eczema, psoriasis, acne, boils, mouth ulcers, bites and poorly healing wounds.
Nettle – Urtica dioica
Soothing and cleansing herb with anti-allergic properties. Used especially for eczema and chronic skin eruptions.
Oregon grape – Mahonia aquifolium
A most effective herb for psoriasis. Also has anti-inflammatory, cleansing and antimicrobial properties so useful in acne and eczema too.
Licorice – Glycyrrhiza glabra
Triterpenoid saponins present in licorice, exert a powerful influence on human steroid hormone function – leading to increased cortisol levels which then provide an anti-inflammatory action, making it useful in the treatment of skin complaints. Also helps improve the overall flavour of the formula.
For many skin complaints we recommend that you do the allergy test (more info regarding this under the 'about' section of this website). This helps to identify possible allergens that set off IgE, an immunoglobulin involved in the allergic process. Allergens range from dust/mites to various food items to biological washing powders. To do this test requires a consultation with Natural Ange Ltd.
According to current literature, Skin Tonic is safe to take if you are taking the oral contraceptive pill but should NOT be taken if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or with immunosuppressive medications
