holi (body) oil for psoriasis? Read what science has to say
I want to highlight a very medicinal ingredient in our holi(body) that does wonders for those of you who suffer from psoriasis. That Ingredient is Orza Sativa- a Japanese rice bran oil that is Full of antioxidants, vitamins B and E, and wonderful natural emollients.
Psoriasis is one of the commonest chronic inflammatory disorders. If you have psoriasis flare ups, you’re not alone—2 to 3 percent of the total population suffer from this condition.This skin disease results from a complex and dynamic interplay between genetic and environmental factors that trigger an excessive inflammatory response in the skin.
A study was done aiming to evaluate the role of Orza sativa in alleviating the symptoms of psoriasis .The results showed that the rice extract reduced the severity of psoriasis by “decreasing the epidermal thickness, acanthosis, hyperkeratosis, epidermal inflammation and degree of apoptosis induction via caspase-3,increasing the expression levels of anti-inflammatory cytokines (IL-10 and TGF-β), reducing the levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines (IL-6, IL-8, IL-20, IL-22 and TNF-α), chemokines (CCL-20) and anti-microbial peptides (psoriasinand β-defensin), enhancing the antioxidative property (Nrf-2),downregulating the levels of psoriasis-associated genes (psoriasin, β-defensin, koebnerisin 15L and koebnerisin 15S) andupregulating the levels of psoriasis-improving genes (caspase-14, involucrin and filaggrin) Thus, the extract appears to exert therapeutic effects on psoriasis through its antioxidative and immunomodulatory properties”
Our holi(oil) is Deeply hydrating, very light and readily absorbed into the skin .Use this oil after your shower or even put a few drops in the bath to leave your skin barrier feeling nourished and supported.
