Creams for Vitiligo
When dealing with vitiligo, the light colored spots that appear can be very embarrassing.
There are a few creams on the market that can help cover up those embarrassing spots with self tanning ingredients or smudge proof concealer, while there is another product that claims repigmentation. Below is a review of 4 different types of products on the market that can help you deal with vitiligo.
Callumae - Helpful For Vitiligo
Callumae, Progressive Health's extremely active Vitiligo formula, has been specifically designed to support immunological functioning and the skin's natural pigmentation processes. Whether used alone, or in combination with your current treatment regime, Callumae may work to slow the progression of Vitiligo and help restore normal skin pigmentation.
Callumae's unique and comprehensive ingredient list is an adjunctive therapy that may restore the function of your skin and improve its physical appearance.
Research indicates that the ingredients found in Callumae can benefit all vitiligo sufferers, especially when combined with ultraviolet light therapies.
Clinical trials have shown that many important vitamins are lacking in a large number of vitiligo patients, including Folic Acid, vitamin B6, and vitamin B12 - nutrients responsible for pigmentation, energy metabolism, and nervous system function.
Callumae not only includes these vitamins in its unique formula, but also employs a synergistic blend of potent botanicals for processes relating to immunological functioning and skin health.
Picrohiza, another unique ingredient to Callumae, has a long tradition of use for immune dysfunction in Ayurvedic medicine. This may prove to be extremely beneficial for patients with vitiligo thought to have an autoimmune component. Callumae also addresses issues of oxidative stress with the inclusion of the potent antioxidants gingko biloba and lipoic acid.
Finally, extract from khella (Ammi visnaga) may be useful in repigmenting the skin of people with vitiligo. In fact, khellin, the active constituent in khella, may work as effectively as some psoralen drugs; stimulating repigmentation of the skin by increasing sensitivity of remaining melanocytes to sunlight.
