The range of Cloud 9 Skin Solutions skin care products is diverse. Added to their targeted treatments for varicose veins, extremely dry skin, blemished skin and skin firming cellulite creams is Skin Rehab, a scar minimising cream designed to help improve the appearance of new or old scars.
The award-winning Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream combines age-old healing principles and cutting edge scientific research to help reduce the appearance of existing scars and help prevent new scars from forming.
St John’s Wort and extract of Onion help reduce inflammation, while Calendula and Yarrow extracts assist in the healing process and to alleviate soreness. Arnica helps to improve skin elasticity and softness.
For best results, use Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream when the wound is sealed and healing. However, you can still get great results on existing scars.
Everyday use of the cream will also help reduce redness and itching, which can be caused by newly healed scars.
HOW TO USE
- For optimal results use regularly. Gently and evenly rub the cream into the scar several times per day for a period of four to five months.
- Begin using Skin Rehab Scar Minimising Cream as soon as your wound has healed and your stitches have been removed.
- For older scars you may start using it immediately.
My eldest son has a small, but distinctive, scar located just below his left eye. It doesn’t bother him in the slightest and even though I think it would be rather nice if the scar could be lessened in even the slightest way, I’ve a feeling he wouldn’t use the cream several times a day as directed – suffering as he does from typical ‘lazy teenage boy’ syndrome.
The (much more reliable) person who will be trialling the cream, has a small scar on her face from an operation over 10 years ago.
We opened the cream together and I think we were both surprised by the lurid, yellow mustard colour. This is actually good news though, because the treatment creams in the Cloud 9 range haven’t been artificially dyed to make the product look more appealing.
Sometimes, it’s what you leave out of a product that makes it more effective and safe to use. All Cloud 9 Skin Solutions products are hypoallergenic and free from Parabens, Formaldehyde, Sulphates, Phthalates, Artificial colours/dyes, SLS, SLES and DEAs.
The colour comes from the Calendula (aka ‘Pot Marigold’) extract. Calendula flowers have not only been used for centuries as a source of dye for fabrics, but more importantly, as an ancient healing herb.
Calendula flowers are a common ingredient in skin treatments because of their wound-healing, antifungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
In combination with other healing ingredients, calendula ointment can effectively treat and heal scar tissue. – The New Age Herbalist
I would suggest you gently squeeze out a tiny amount of product onto a cotton wool ear bud and then apply to skin. Apply too much and it’ll stain the skin and look like a tiny bruise.
I can see this 50ml tube easily lasting 3-4 months.
It took me a few minutes to identify it, but the scent, which is not at all unpleasant, reminds me of black/green tea.
I look forward to hearing of the outcome in a few months’ time.
