Report on

    Testing of Sea Salt with essential oils of “RELAXA AROMATHERAPY’’

    The testing was carried out in the Republican Dermatovenerologic Dispensary, Chisinau.

    The goal of the research: evaluation of the effectiveness, safety profile and tolerance of various types ofSaky sea salts, as well as Mediterranean Sea salts within complex treatment of psoriasis patients, including patients having psoriatic arthropathy, acne, eczema, skin itch, seborrhoeic dermatitis, cellulitis.

    Contraindications to carry out the balneotherapy were considered to be the following: acute infectious diseases, acute inflammatory diseases (of kidneys, respiratory tracts etc.), acute dermatitis, myocardial infarction in anamnesis, hypertension of II and III grades, oncologic diseases, as well as individual intolerance to various salt components.  

    Material. Total 220 patients aged from 4 to 58 years old participated in the research. The patients were classified according to the diagnosis as follows:

  • ordinarypsoriasis(psoriasis vulgaris) – 40 patients;
  • psoriasis in combination with joint disease (psoriatic arthropathy) – 20 patients;
  • greasy skin and acne – 20 patients;
  • cellulitis - 20 patients;
  • eczemas (neurodermatitis) at the stage of infiltration – 20 patients;
  • different types of eczemas at the subacute stage – 20 patients;
  • skin itch, dry, irritated skin – 40 patients;
  • different types of intertrigo, contact dermatitis – 20 patients.

    Method. In order to achieve the effect of the balneotherapy 1000 g of salt were dissolved under water at the temperature of 37-38 degrees. Therapeutic baths were prescribed 3-5 times per week until appearance of the therapeutic effect. Total, treatment schedule provides for 7-10 baths. Duration of taking a therapeutic bath is 15-20 minutes. Balneotherapy with application of the certain type of salt was prescribed depending on the pathology and is represented by the following groups of patients: 

  • First group. 20 patients with cellulitis who were taking baths with Anticelullit salt.

  • Second group.20 patientswith psoriasis in combination with joint disease (psoriatic arthropathy) were prescribed Pine salt, changing by SANDALWOOD and Fir salt.

  • Third group. Baths salt with Sage essential oil were used by 20 patients with skin itch, dry, irritated skin in combination with different disorders of the central nervous system (sleep disorder, depression etc.).

  • Fourth group.20 patients with ordinary (vulgaris) psoriasiswithout joint disease were prescribed sea salt baths with essential oil of Lavender.

  • Fifth group.Baths with sea salt with Eucaliptus oilswere prescribed for 20 patients with greasy skin in combination with common form of acne.

  • Sixth group.Baths with sea salt with essential oil of Tea Tree were taken by 20 patients with different forms of eczema at the subacute stage.

  • Seventh group. Baths with Patchouli plus Levender plus Palmarossa salt were taken by 20 patients with seborhoeic dermatitis.

  • Eighth group.Baths with Melissa salt for 20 patients with different forms of eczema at the stage of infiltration with itch, insomnia, nervousness.

  • Ninth group.Baths with Mint salt for 20 patients with skin itch, irritated, dry skin.  

  • Tenth group.Baths with BABY salt for 20 patients with different intertrigo forms, contact dermatitis.

  • Eleventh group. Baths with Fengh-Shui and Aromazodiac with Mediterranean Sea Saltfor 20 patients with ordinary psoriasis. 

    Evaluation of clinical response was carried out on the basis of decrease in activity and prevalence of the process, and namely, resolution of cutaneous manifestations, minimal intensity of the symptoms, medium intensity, and maximal intensity of the symptoms.

    Effectiveness of the testingwas evaluated as clinical recovery, significant clinical improvement, improvement, without effect.

    The undesirable effects were taken into account for analysis of tolerability and safety (itching, exacerbation of the process, overdried skin, swelling, idiosyncrasy), which was ultimately marked as - excellent, good, satisfactory, poor tolerability.

 

    Results

    Evaluation of clinical effectiveness and effectiveness of the testing into the groups were distributed as follows:

    Thus, the highest efficiency of balneotherapy in combination treatment of  patients  was  achieved in patients with cutaneous pruritus and dry skin, which used baths with Sage salt; with ordinary (vulgar) psoriasis with the use of baths with Lavander salt, as well as with use of Fengh-Shui and Aromazodiac with Mediterranean sea salt; baths with Patchouli plus Levander and  Palmarosa salt in patients withseborrheic dermatitis; baths with Melissa salt for patients with different forms of eczema; baths with BABY salt for patients with different forms of intertrigo, contact dermatitis.

    Overall effectiveness of all salts used in this research (significant improvement/ improvement) averages between 85 and 100%.

    Data received indicate a fairly good efficacy and tolerability of Saky Sea Salt “RELAXA AROMATHERAPY”, which contains beta-carotene and all biocomponents in its crystal lattice, and maintains, therefore, live biology and biochemistry of the sea. Its unique pink color is due to content in sea water of microalgae Dunaliella Sallina, which presents the largest natural source of natural carotenoids. It contains many macroelements and microelements important for health as iodine, fluorine, potassium, magnesium, calcium, bromine, sodium, natural beta-carotene (provitamin A) in an easily assimilable form. We note a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect of salts used.

    In addition, the high efficiency of the Fegh-Shui and Aromazodiac with Mediterranean Sea salt in psoriasis is noted.

    Finally, Crimean Sea Salt of “RELAXA AROMATHERAPY “ and Mediterranean Sea salt can be recommended as an auxiliary method of treatment of various diseases: psoriasis, acne, oily skin, different types of eczema, seborrheic dermatitis, dry skin in combination with itching and disorders of the nervous system, intertrigo, contact dermatitis, cellulitis. It’s important to note safety of the above salts for balneotherapy, including at home.
