DermaGen by Botanical Chemist Shares Natures Best Kept Secret for Eczema and Dermatitis – Manuka Oil

Mother and community pharmacist Karen Cheah knew topical steroids weren’t a long-term solution when her son developed severe eczema. She put her 16 years of experience as a pharmacist to work finding a better way to soothe and nourish the skin with natural ingredients and botanicals.

The World Health Organization lists resistance to antimicrobials as one of the top threats to global health. DermaGen by Botanical Chemist aims to change how eczema, dermatitis, and other minor wounds and skin conditions are managed by supporting skin regeneration, reducing inflammation, and having antiseptic properties. 

“When we installed a compounding room in the pharmacy three years ago, I did more research and came across some amazing oils, such as manuka oil, which is from the same plant used by the Maori tribes in New Zealand for centuries for its medicinal properties,” Pharmacist Karen Cheah said. 

Propolis is another hero ingredient in the DermaGen by Botanical Chemist skincare line, offering an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory product with antioxidants to support skin regeneration. The skincare line includes products beneficial for all types of skin irritations and rashes, from eczema and dermatitis to blisters, pimples, and even minor psoriasis flare-ups.

More than a moisturizer or emollient

DermaGen by Botanical Chemist natural skincare products stand apart from other similar products in the industry by targeting five skincare problem areas: 

–  Manuka oil and Propolis
These two natural ingredients offer various antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, antioxidant, and anti-inflammatory properties to soothe and nourish irritated skin.

–  Broken skin
Broken, inflamed skin is ripe for bacterial infection, which delays wound healing. DermaGen addresses the issue of minor infections through broken skin with ingredients to support skin renewal and regeneration. 

–  Moisture
Inflamed and broken skin loses a lot of moisture as water evaporates. The natural oils and waxes in DermaGen by Botanical Chemist products help form a barrier on the skin, minimizing water loss and keeping skin hydrated longer. 

–  Skin microbiome
Like the gut, the skin has a microbiome consisting of millions of beneficial bacteria, fungi, and other microorganisms. However, broken or inflamed skin presents a risk for microorganisms to get into a wound and colonize it, further delaying healing.

–  Immune response
Bacteria entering wounds release a toxic allergen, further triggering the body’s immune system, resulting in more skin redness and irritation. 

Finding a new way to treat eczema symptoms

DermaGen by Botanical Chemist produces products to soothe, nourish, and hydrate skin. DermaGen’s natural skincare range helps those suffering from dry, irritated skin conditions.

Award-winning skincare

The company won the Clean and Conscious Award in 2021 for its Propolis Balm. The award recognizes outstanding brands with a proven history of working harmoniously with the environment, people, and society. 

“As a mother to two young outgoing children, this has become my secret weapon. It’s cleared up stubborn eczema patches, soothed grazes, and so much more. Formulated with powerful active ingredients and yet in a formulation that is so gentle on the skin, this is an incredible product,” says Emily Fletcher, founder of the Clean and Conscious Award.

Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW) Symptoms

DermaGen by Botanical Chemist products offers effective relief for symptoms of the debilitating skin condition known as Topical Steroid Withdrawal (TSW). Patients suffering from TSW struggle to manage broken, inflamed skin, relentless itching, staph infections, and dry, flaking skin. These products can help manage some of these symptoms, helping the sores and minor skin injuries heal quicker, soothing the itch and inflammation, and keeping the skin hydrated for longer.
