The Psoriasis Balm & Serum are both made using a nourishing base of Organic Hemp Seed Oil & a combination of gentle fruit acids + essential oils to gently smooth skin and sooth the appearance of Psoriasis on the scalp or body. The balm is just a solid version, great for travel, but a little harder to distribute through the scalp. Both work well alone, and they can be used together.
The very short version, this gentle oil helps soften skin and soothe itch.
Because these oils are so light and nourishing, you can use this balm on both scalp and body. I like to layer this with the Psoriasis Soothing Mist on my scalp the day after I shampoo. I also keep one in my purse. As far as balm or oil, whichever you prefer. It is very much just a matter of texture preference. Both are equally effective. The texture of the balm once rubbed into your skin is just very very slightly heavier than the oil.
I offer sever products for both Psoriasis and Eczema, but it is important that you understand the difference between the two and why I offer multiple solutions for one problem.
Psoriasis = Itching + Flaking (typically larger plaques) + Redness + Cracking Skin with Redness and / or pain. Considered a more "wet" condition, with some possible bleeding. Psoriasis is an immune-related skin concern, and so cannot be "cured" topically. That being said, if you have Psoriasis, you would probably be happy with having it under control and not painful. Bear's Beauty Psoriasis solutions are designed to be used individually or layered together. I used a combination of fruit acids (to soften + encourage cell turnover + slough off dead skin) and Organic Willow Bark to soothe redness and calm in all of the Psoriasis formulations. Essential Oils are carefully blended into a synergistic mix that smells fresh and herbal, but dissipates quickly. If you have sensitivities to Essential Oils, the Body Serum can be made without them, via spacial request.
Eczema = Dryness + Minor Flaking + Minor Itch + Bumps + Chicken Skin + Not Typically Painful. Eczema tends to be easier to address than Psoriasis. Things like dry patches, scaly looking skin, itching, and bumps are all issues associated with Eczema or similar skin concerns. Bear's Beauty offers two Eczema specific products, a balm with Turmeric + Oat and an Body Serum. Both use moisturizing + anti-bacterial botanical oils and essential oils to quickly protect + sooth + moisturize delicate skin. Bear's Beauty Eczema Turmeric Balm or Body Serum used along with the Misbehaving Body Scrub is my protocol for KP (Chicken Skin / small bumps on the backs of arms.) If you have Eczema, and not Psoriasis, please check out Turmeric + Oat Eczema Soothing Balm or Eczema + KP Body Serum :) If you have sensitivities to Essential Oils, the Body Serum can be made without them, via spacial request.
Weather you struggle with Psoriasis or Eczema, anytime you cleanse your skin or get wet, you should be applying some type of oil-based moisturizer. Keeping the skin protected and the lipid layer intact is one of the most important steps to healing your skin. Things like commercial lotions that use emulsifying wax literally emulsify your own skin's oil and rinse it away down the drain, leaving your skin even drier than before. Bear's Beauty products are meant to only do good. Each ingredient nourishes and encourages your body and the natural processes involved in healing.
PROPERTIES + BENEFITS
This oil is very near and dear to my heart. For most of my life, I had patches of Psoriasis on my scalp. When I stopped using commercial shampoo and conditioner, it improved, but never totally went away. My scalp was always dry and itchy. Using this has helped improve my scalp by leaps and bounds.

Organic Hemp Seed Oil is rich in Omega Fatty Acids 3 + 6 + 9, making it ideal for fragile and damaged skin. It is also rich in Linoleic Acid which helps the oil to penetrate deeply as well as unclog pores and keep the follicles clear. Hemp Seed Oil is also very light and has natural anti-inflammatory properties. It helps sooth and reduce itch as well as balance oil production and strengthen scalp,skin, and hair.
Organic Argan Oil is packed with vitamin E. It is antioxidant rich and improves the health of your skin. Argan is also amazing for hair and helps balance oil production as well as soften tough skin. I use the finest Organic Argan Oil from Morocco.
Red Raspberry Oil is an amazing anti-inflammatory, helping to instantly sooth itchy scalps as well as improve the health of your skin over time. A very high concentration of polyphenols + antioxidants + Vitamin A help to renew the scalp as well as protect + balance. Also rich in Linoleic acid, this oil is ideal for itchy skin.

THE RITUAL (Scalp)
Many times the "APPLICATION" / Directions are the very bare-minimum amount of info, to simply explain how to use the product, but this does not give you a full picture of how to use a product along with others or how to integrate it into your daily ritual.
Depending on the severity of your condition, you may choose to use this as often as every other day as an overnight treatment and every day as a spot treatment.
If you are using commercial shampoo, I encourage you to explore other options, as about 90% of the customers I talk to benefit greatly from switching to s shampoo without sulfates. You may also want to look at reducing the number of times you wash your hair each week.
Apply the night before washing your hair and massage in well.
Shampoo as usual the next morning.
For spot application, you want to apply a drop or two to your finger and then massage into specific spots.
For body application, apply where needed, as desired.

Many items are composed of delicate floral waters and botanical oils. Keeping your items in the fridge and away from direct light will greatly extend the life of the product. This is especially true for Hydrosols + Cremes + Cold Creams + Sprays + Butters (in the summer they may become liquid) + Coconut (Coconut becomes liquid at 76 degrees) + Cremes. I use Radish Root Ferment, a widely used natural preservative, but keeping your items cool + away from light will give you more time to use + love them. Oil-based serums should be stored away from direct light and refrigerated if you will not use within 4 months.
