The National Psoriasis Foundation works to improve the quality of life of people who have psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. They promote awareness and understanding of the disease through education and advocacy. They strive to ensure access to treatment and support research that will lead to effective management and, ultimately, a cure. "Psoriasis Advance" is aimed at patients, their families, support groups, and health professionals, who struggle with this chronic disease. Published four times a year, the journal focuses on coping with chronic disease, advocacy through the National Psoriasis Walk for Awareness, the Foundation's Annual Conference, Capital Hill Day, and products available for skincare for psoriasis patients. SkinFree® Skincare Products were one of four product lines presented in the "Psoriasis Advance" Consumer Corner in the March/April issue.
Blue Ridge Gypsy's SkinFree® products are formulated and designed by practicing pharmacist, Julie Hilton, who has over 30 years experience in compounding and in developing natural skin care. The Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio was created in 2000 when Julie Hilton moved to the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia and began doing research and formulation for natural skincare.
Julie Hilton, founder of Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio, said, "I personally suffer from chronic allergies and eczema, so I understand that it is very important for people with these conditions to maintain the integrity of their skin and reduce their exposure to antigens to help prevent acute outbreaks. These diseases can be quite debilitating and cause increase depression, work loss, and pain when not treated."
SkinFree® Products are created by using naturally occurring vegetable oils and butters that contain indigenous nutrients, antioxidants, non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDS), and antibacterial agents that petroleum-based oils don't provide. Natural oils also absorb into the skin without feeling greasy. They also come from replenishable sources, a great environmental benefit. SkinFree Products are all natural and contain no perfumes, petroleum products, harmful chemicals, steroids or colorants.
Blue Ridge Gypsy Studio promotes SkinFree products primarily through doctor's offices, social media and word of mouth. Bloggers and journalists are welcome to contact Skinfree for samples.
