As the cook of the house, I have my share of burns on my hands. I try my best to avoid it, but sure enough, I often get sizzled. I usually use over the counter ointment to heal the burn, but I am usually left with a red mark on my hand that takes months to fade – some of which haven’t. Applying scar treatment is my best bet to get these marks to disappear completely.
Recently, I was introduced to Kelosoft® Have you heard of it? It’s new to Canada!
It’s a herbal ointment that helps scars to fade. It has a very faint scent, and a thick (a bit greasy, but not oily) consistency, that applies smoothly to the skin. From personal experience, over a period of two weeks – I noticed a recognizable change in a scar.
Surgery, wounds, chicken pox, burns – no matter how you earned your scar, this first-of-its-kind product has been proven to prevent and reduce the appearance of scars and even make them disappear, naturally.
Kelosoft®, is a herbal ointment manufactured in Switzerland, the product will be available at Shopper’s Drug Mart stores acrossOntario starting March 2015. The only herbal-based scar treatment to receive a Natural Product Number (NPN) from Health Canada, Kelosoft® not only helps scars to fade – no matter how old they are – but, when applied to fresh marks, can also prevent them from forming in the first place.
What sets the natural product apart from other external creams on the market, which are primarily cosmetic-based, is an active ingredient called green oil. Extracted from henbane leaves, the oil accounts for 50 per cent of Kelosoft’s composition and is proven to soften and smooth the properties of scar tissue. Other natural ingredients found in the product include purified water, beeswax and collagen.
Historically, the henbane plant was used in medicine for its healing and soothing properties, explained Dr. Charles Piwko, a leading pharmacist and pharmacologist who is launching the product line in Canada. In Switzerland, it has effectively been used to treat scarring for more than three decades, even showing improvement in hardened, reddened scars that are mature.
Kelosoft® is recommended for use on new injuries after two weeks, once wounds are completely healed. A small amount is massaged into the skin every evening before bedtime and treatment typically lasts for several months, depending on the size and extent of the scar formation. It works on all sizes, types and ages of scars, including keloid, atrophic and hypertrophic scars that are already years old, with clinical research showing gradual fading and reduction in size after sufficient treatment.
As a mom to a very busy four year old boy, I see my fair share of bruises and cuts. This is exactly the kind of product that I would use on his boo-boos with complete confidence.
