dry skin and irritations
soothing and restorative action that favors the immediate restoration
of the normal skin barrier
Pizetalen® is an anhydrous ointment with emollient, soothing and restorative properties to manage all the discomforts that follow the alteration of the skin and mucous membranes (genital and perianal), both in adults and children. It forms a protective film that restores the natural hydro-lipid balance of the skin and mucosal barrier, counteracting its desquamation and promoting its regeneration.
The formula based on lipids and plant extracts makes Pizetalen® suitable both in the presence of dry or reddened skin due to rashes, insect bites, laser and/or pulsed light treatments, tattoos, etc., and to protect and soothe irritated baby skin by the occlusive effect of diapers. Also useful in case of irritation, dryness and itching of the female and male genital and perianal mucosa (e.g. vulvar dystrophy, Lichen Sclerosus, balanitis and balanoposthitis).
Ointment based on rice bran oil, shea butter, sweet almond oil, beeswax, sunflower seed oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, vitamin E, extracts of chamomile, calendula, mallow and St. John’s wort.
HOW TO USE
Apply to the affected area one or more times a day, as needed. It can also be used on the mucous membranes (genital and perianal).
Cosmetic use. Do not swallow. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a cool, dry place, away from extreme temperatures. Given its natural composition, the appearance of the ointment may undergo variations depending on the temperature, without altering its quality.
Our skin performs different functions: the first and most important is that it constitutes a barrier between the inside of the organism and the external environment. Structurally, much of the barrier function resides in the horny layer of the skin, which constitutes the outermost layer of the epidermis and regulates transepidermal water loss (TEWL), blocks the penetration of potentially harmful substances and protects against injury and abrasion. Keratinocytes and the lipid material they contain are essential for this barrier function. However, in non-physiological conditions, the passage of unwanted substances can occur. The alteration of the barrier leads to the onset of dermopathies; therefore, attention must also be paid to incorrect daily practices, such as repeated washing or works that involve the direct use of detergents or aggressive detergents. An alteration of the skin barrier exposes any person to the risk of developing itching, irritation, redness and even an infection. Rubbing, which can give immediate relief (but a false relief!), instead creates the chain of the above conditions. Therefore, it is necessary to provide with the application of a soothing and emollient cream, once or twice a day in the affected area, to restore the correct and physiological skin barrier.
Industrial creams often have an aggressive action that worsens the conditions of already dry skin, exposing it more to risks due to external agents. Instead, Pizetalen® is an ointment based on ingredients of natural origin, rich in vegetable lipids. These products rarely cause allergies and irritations because they do not contain aggressive chemicals, which are present in traditional cosmetics. That is why choosing natural remedies like Pizetalen® can prove to be a decisive factor in getting rid of the problems quickly.
