Causes of Keratosis Pilaris
Keratosis pilaris is not a very well known skin condition. Up to 40% of adults all over the globe suffer from it, and over half of them don’t even know it. Keratosis pilaris is genetic in origin but the precise cause has not yet been determined. Still, many doctors believe that the cause of Keratosis pilaris is the overproduction of keratin inside the skin. This excess gets trapped inside the follicle, developing a bump.
It is also thought to be a disorder of keratinisation in which the sticky cells that line the hair follicle form a horny plug instead of exfoliating. This widens the pores making them appear more obvious than elsewhere. Often a curled hair can be identified under the skin.
Keratosis pilaris is a skin condition frequently seen on the upper arms, buttocks and thighs. The skin cells that normally flake off as a fine dust form plugs in the hair follicles. These appear as small pimples that have a dry ''sandpaper'' feeling. They are usually white, but when inflamed they appear rather red. They usually don't itch or hurt, except with extreme changes in temperature.
This condition is particularly common among teenagers (up to 80%). Its manifestation is very common on the upper arms, especially on the external side of the arm. It may occur in babies where it tends to be most obvious on the cheeks. It may remain for years but in most cases it gradually disappears usually before age 30. Keratosis pilaris is unsightly but completely harmless. It is usually worse during the winter months. The worsening is directly associated with low humidity, skin dryness and tight clothes that “rub” the bumps at al times. Some people have stated that this condition worsened during pregnancy and/or after childbirth.
Some doctors as well as patients believe that food is related with keratosis pilaris. According to their own experience, spicy foods tend to increase the bumps and make them more noticeable. On the other hand, patients that reduced or eliminated milk and its derivatives from their diet claimed to have had a considerable improvement.
Treatment for keratosis pilaris is not necessary, and unfortunately, it often has disappointing results. With persistence, most people can get improve this aesthetic condition by moisturizing and replenishing the lipid content of the skin regularly.
The plugged pores can be removed by taking long, hot soaking tub baths and then rubbing the areas with a coarse washcloth, stiff brush, or 'Buf-Puf'. Also, a good microdermabrasion proceeding can help get rid of all the excess keratin.
Prescription medicines may help, including some antibiotics like Erythromycin and Bactrim. If the swelling or redness of the bumps is getting worse, you should discuss with your doctor the use of topical retinoids. The derivatives of vitamin A can be very harsh for the skin, so be aware of all the symptoms you develop.
We offer a solution for Keratosis Pilaris, a natural cream with Helix Aspersa Müller Glycoconjugates. It is a biological ingredient collected from live snails and contains a complex compound of molecules that protect the skin from free radical oxydation, promote the proliferation of the water holding molecules in the skin and the healthy turnover of connective tissues, dissolve damaged and non functional tissues such as keratin plugs by enzymatic digestion or breakdown of their amino-acid components and has antimicrobial properties.
BIOSKINTREATMENT™ and BIOSKINEXFOL™ are natural skin care products that require constancy in their use to achieve results. You must apply BIOSKINEXFOL three times a week, or the BIOSKINTREATMENT lotion twice a day every day. It is important to be patient since results will not be immediate, not even fast. For most people results will be seen in 5 to 6 weeks.
BIOSKINTREATMENT™ and BIOSKINEXFOL™ work because the biological ingredient in them and the formulation makes it the most complete and balanced natural solution for the normal functioning of the skin and for regeneration of damaged skin.
BIOSKINTREATMENT LOTION clears skin of keratin bumps and regenerates healthy skin
The product is made with the same base as BIOSKINCARE plus Salix Nigra (Willow) Extract and Amorphophallus Konjac Root Powder for a more potent keratolytic effect that cleans the excess horny material of the skin by degrading keratin plugs and dissolving debris, damaged, abnormal and necrotic tissues. It decongests the skin as the enzymes in the snail serum and the natural salicylic acid in willow bark extract help to 'digest' all damaged structures into their amino-acid and other components, which also favors the regeneration of all the structural components of healthy skin.
It leaves your skin smooth, refreshed, soft and with use over a period of time it takes away keratosis pilaris, actinic keratosis scales, controls acne and reduces and even vanishes all types of skin blemishes: razor nicks and burns, roughness, blisters, scrapes, cuts, and the list can go on and on...

Ultra exfoliate rough scars and dull skin with BIOSKINEXFOL
Home microdermabrasion cream. Contains the same natural ingredients in BIOSKINTREATMENT but infused with micro-crystals so that you may rub it with your finger tips to remove old, hard, and tough scars or stretch marks by a physical breakdown of the scar tissues. Best also for oily skin and aged skin, actinic keratosis scales and pitted acne scars. Not for keloids and not if your skin is still fragile (use BIOSKINTREATMENT for a few months first to strengthen your skin). The compounded action of the physical abrasion and the enzymes in the cream liquefy damaged proteins more thoroughly helping to release amino-acids to aid in rebuilding damaged tissues quickly. Results are not only immediate, but compound over time and do not trigger inflamm-aging of delicate skin tissues.

Biological Skin Treatment Ingredient
Our products contain a biological serum created by a living creature. It is packed with enzymes, coenzymes, glycoproteins, glycosaminoglycans (hyaluronic acid), proteoglycans, peptides and oligoelements that (a) dissolve keratin plugs that obstruct the hair follicles and cause hyperkeratosis or acne and damaged and dysfunctional tissues, (b) regenerate healthy skin by promoting the proliferation of fibroblasts and supporting microcirculation in capillaries, (c) scavenge oxygen radicals and the damaging effects of excessive solar radiation and (c) keep microbes in check by the action of antimicrobial peptides secreted on the skin and within the hair follicles.
It keeps the skin moisturized, prevents skin infection, repairs wounds, promotes scarless healing, and renews the skin.
The collection of the biological ingredient in our products is done by using a humanely method that inflicts no damage upon the little creatures from which we gather the biological compound that can not possible be replicated in even the most sophisticated laboratory.

Skin Treatment Products
A deeply moisturizing and pure natural skin care cream that dissolves keratin plugs and debris and unblocks clogged pores allowing for the outflow of sebum to the surface where it lubricates and protects the skin instead of causing injuries to the cells lining the follicles and an inflammatory reaction of the body to repair the damage. Triggers the rebuilding of damaged and dead tissues and restores the capacity of the skin to hold in water from within. Rrestores the lipid wall of our skin thereby impeding the penetration of allergens and toxins. It induces the production of antimicrobial peptides on the surface of the skin and within the skin follicles contributing to control microrganisms. Signals the body it is being taken care of and does not need to fire its immune responses and overly react to minor injuries thus avoiding the loss of tissues that characterizes deep scars. Avoids scarring and diminishes scars from accidents, surgery, stretch marks, hypertrophic and keloid scars, by the breakdown of abnormal, dysfunctional and damaged tissues into their amino acid components while stimulating their replacement with new healthy skin structures. Vanishes redness and dryness, relieves eczema and dermatitis, reduces psoriasis scales and most skin blemishes. Repairs skin damaged by glycolic peeling and other chemical peels, dermabrasion or laser resurfacing. By strengthening the skin it relieves the uncomfortable side effects of retinoic drugs such as Accutane that thin the skin. Reduces and heals skin fragility and is a potent antioxidant thus helping to reduce the damaging effects on the dermis of sun burns and too much exposure to solar radiation. It also helps to heal blisters, bruises, wounds, and the consequences on the skin of ionizing radiotherapy or radiodermatitis. 50 gram (1.76 oz) jar = $60.
