New Eczema Research Revolutionizes Understanding of the Condition



Effective Eczema Treatment Demands Preservation of Skin with a Shielding Lotion

LOS ANGELES -- Scientists have long believed that eczema is an allergic reaction. However, new research has found that most eczema cases are the result of an entirely different phenomenon - a defective skin barrier that predisposes eczema sufferers to damage from environmental irritants. These findings revolutionize scientists' understanding of eczema and open the door to more effective eczema treatment.

Hundreds of dermatologists are now recommending the use of a shielding lotion, a new type of skin care product that mimics the skin's protective outer layer. This may well be the new global standard for eczema treatment.

The new study, published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, revealed surprising findings - the raised allergic antibodies that would support the immune reaction theory were not present in two-thirds of the cases studied. Instead, they found evidence that the protective surface layer of the skin was compromised. Scientists now believe that this problem is the true source of many eczema conditions and that treatment must take an abrupt turn away from the immune system focus towards preserving the integrity of the skin's protective layer.

Scientists suspect that the breakdown is due to a combination of factors - a genetic predisposition to thin skin which is then easily damaged by moisture loss and irritation caused by overheating, cold weather, dry winds and exposure to chemical irritants like soap or detergents.
One thing is certain, while thin skin is more susceptible to developing eczema, exposure to irritants is often the key precipitating element for flares.

According to Dr. Peter Helton, cosmetic dermatologist and medical director of the Helton Skin and Laser Institute in Newport Beach, California, "In order for the skin to heal and return to its healthy condition you have to seal in the moisture and oils that are below the outer layer of skin and protect it from the irritants in the environment."

A good shielding lotion does just that. "Shielding lotions can significantly restore the skin's natural barrier and thus make it less susceptible to environmental irritants and eczema flares," explains Dr. Lisa Benest, a board certified dermatologist in Burbank, California. A recent Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) study found that shielding lotion increases the protective layer formation properties by more than 50 percent within one hour of application.

"A shielding lotion is a new kind of lotion. It is a new technology that blends moisturizers with a light silicone material that is like a liquid film that bonds with the surface of your skin. It is like wearing an invisible shield that helps heal the skin. It keeps the moisture in and keeps the irritants out," said Dr. Helton.

Steroid creams and ointments are the traditional topical eczema treatment, but, as they can further damage the protective layer, these new findings indicate the need for a different approach. Shielding lotion may be the wave of the future.

Breakthrough Finding For Eczema Sufferers

Relief may be at hand for Australia's one million eczema sufferers after a breakthrough finding by Australian scientists.

Doctors now believe a defective skin barrier is the primary cause of the disease.

Until now it was thought the immune system was responsible, but the new findings pave the way for better treatment and management of the debilitating disorder.

The condition can start in the first weeks of life and in some people, the problem will continue for a lifetime.

One in three Australians now suffers eczema, which is one of the highest rates in the world.

Often the condition flares up when sufferers have a stressful week and until now many doctors believed an allergy was to blame.

Now they know it's a fault in the make up of the skin barrier, a finding they regard as significant.

"It has a lot of consequences on the treatment that we use, because rather than just targeting the immune system we need to preserve the barrier," said Dr. Su from the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne.
Dr. Su says several factors contribute to a skin barrier break down. Namely:
  • overheating
  • chemical irritants, like soaps or detergent
  • dryness, caused by cold weather or dry winds and
  • genetics.
"Most often it is a combination of these factors, which is relevant," said dermatologist Dr. David Orchard.

The new findings will have particular implications for mild to moderate cases.

For these people, steroid creams can be swapped for a non-steroid alternative, because steroids can contribute to damage.

Dr. Su said: "We need to use agents that are much more selective and non-damaging to the skin.

"The defective barrier can certainly be preserved. We are moving toward being able to keep it preserved and reverse the defect."

Heat Wave Draws Attention to Dry Skin Care Treatment

The joys of a summer vacation are plentiful despite the recent extreme and prolonged heat wave world-wide, but when it comes to good skin care, summer travel can often be the cause of dry skin. Arid plane cabins, change in climate, extensive walking, chlorinated pools, heat conditions, and environmental factors can all take their toll on the unprepared summer traveler. A shielding lotion can provide the needed protection to make your skin look like your vacation was the restful retreat it should be.

Whatever your mode of travel, dry skin is a risk. Everybody knows how hot a car gets during a heat wave, but even on a day with moderate temperatures, a car's indoor air can reach more than 160 degrees. A good air conditioning system helps cool things down, but both it and summer heat can still really dehydrate the body and skin. Air travel in arid cabins can also contribute to the dehydration factor.

"Sweating is a mechanism to cool off the body. When our bodies get too hot we sweat to cool off. We trade the loss of salt and fluids for cooling, so the key is to drink more in a hot or arid climate, take in more of those electrolytes, and use a shielding lotion," says Dr. Lisa Benest, a dermatologist with a successful practice in Burbank, Calif.
A summer heat wave dictates bare-skinned fashions, and although everyone knows to use sunscreen to protect against skin damage during the peak of sunlight, many people are sensitive to the chemical ingredients found in sunscreens, or when traveling in lesser developed countries skin can be exposed to unknown harmful irritants. A shielding lotion restores the skin's own natural defenses to guard against both situations.

When traveling, a commonly ignored or forgotten part of a good skin care routine is foot care. "People walk more barefoot or in sandals during the summer, causing calluses to build up and skin to dry and crack, so people should take time to moisturize more frequently. That's where a good shielding lotion comes in," she says.

No matter the destination, or the mode of travel, the heat wave is sure to persist, so be prepared with a quality shielding lotion, like Gloves In A Bottle, to protect from the pitfalls of travel, such as irritated or dehydrated dry skin.

New invisible hand protection fits all applications like a glove

Already well established in America, a new hand protection shielding lotion that bonds with the outer layers of the skin, is now available in the UK.

New GLOVES IN A BOTTLE is a non greasy, non-sticky, hypoallergenic and completely safe hand protection shielding lotion that is an ideal skin safeguard for applications that include all work in harsh weather conditions, household work, DIY, hospital duties, sport, gardening, construction and engineering work.

Artificial lotions only attempt to replace natural oils with artificial moisture, but they come off every time you wash. One application of GLOVES IN A BOTTLE does not wash off and works like an invisible pair of gloves preventing dirt and grime from penetrating the skin. These 'Invisible Gloves' keep moisture-robbing irritants out while retaining your skins natural oils.

GLOVES IN A BOTTLE rapidly absorbs into and bonds with the outer layer of skin providing a protective glove-like coating, that comes off naturally with exfoliated skin cells after at least 4 hours. It is an ideal moisturiser for dry, extremely dry and cracked skin by allowing skin to breath and retain its natural moisture and oils.

Many workplace and household chemicals are absorbed directly into the skin, causing dry, itchy, and cracked skin. Conventional lotions just replace natural oils with artificial ones, offering only temporary relief that does not heal the skin.

Never before have so many common skin conditions, allergies and complaints been afforded the protection offered by GLOVES IN A BOTTLE. Hundreds of dermatologists in America recommend it for skin care, as a dry skin moisturizer, for prevention of dry, itchy skin problems of all kinds and to help moisturize skin from the inside out. The solution for skin problems, even painful cracked skin, is here.

When you know you should be wearing gloves whether gardening, exposed to harsh weather, household chemicals or playing sport, up till now all one could do to alleviate skin disorders, or just ordinary dry cracked skin, was apply conventional lotions - artificial moisture replacement systems.

GLOVES IN A BOTTLE creates a protective shielding layer while retaining the moisture from within - a shielding lotion.
