Dr. Darlene McCord's RemedyŽ Olivamine Skin Repair Cream

Developed by Dr. Darlene McCord, Remedy Olivamine Skin Repair Cream helps guard and alleviate damage related to frequent hand washing such as dryness, cracked, inflamed, reddened and itchy skin.

Dr. Darlene McCord's RemedyŽ Olivamine Skin Repair Cream is a blend of nutrients aimed for skin cells, as well as Dimethicone to help prevent e-TEWL.

H2O. The chemical symbol for water is such a simple calculation and yet so very powerful. Without water life does not occur. When treating the skin and nurturing it back to health it is vital to get moisture to the skin and its cells. Dr. Darlene McCord products have concentrated ingredients that bind water to the skin making it obtainable upon cellular demand.

Skin Repair Cream is masterful in its power to cultivate skin back to health. The product uses water with its molecular weight of just 18 Daltons to bring other small molecules such as vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and other nutrients straight to cells. Based upon the 500 Dalton Rule, we know that molecules under 500 Daltons can liberally cross the stratum corneum. Now how do we hold the nutrients intact?

Olive oil and canola oils join moisture and foster the skin with the delivery of their "essential" fatty acids. The term essential is important; it means that the cells demand the nutrient to live but do not have the capability to produce it on their own making it "essential." Oils originated from plants and seeds are nutrient rich and offer the skin with the lipid portion of the healing method.

No argument of Skin Repair Cream would be all-inclusive without a discussion of its dependence upon Olivamine. Olivamine is a proprietary combination of vitamins B3, B6, glycine, N-Acetyl-LCysteine, L-taurine, L-proline, hydroxytyrosol and methylsulfonylmethane invented by Dr. Darlene McCord. The Remedy line and most certainly Skin Repair Cream are reliant on Olivamine's small molecule science.

Dr. Darlene McCord's RemedyŽ Olivamine Nutrashield Skin Protectant

Developed by Dr. Darlene McCord, Remedy Olivamine Nutrashield Skin Protectant provides an active, long-lasting moisture barricade against incontinent episodes while reducing dryness, scratched or stripped skin.

RemedyŽ Olivamine Nutrashield Skin Protectant is a long lasting nutritious formula that helps prevent diaper rash, dry and broken skin.

RemedyŽ Olivamine Nutrashield Skin Protectant protects the skin with a sophisticated silicone system.

According to Albert Kligman, M.D., Ph.D., "Whenever you see inflamed skin, regardless of cause, the stratum corneum is leaky and permeable." Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) and excessive Transepidermal Water Loss (e-TEWL) play a part in skin well-being. TEWL is coordinated by the stratum corneum and is a regular part of cellular action. e-TEWL is not part of "normal" cellular activity and can be accredited to breaks in the reliability of the skin's wall.

The Nutrashield is a semipermeable, nonocclusive barrier to e-TEWL. It permits the normal exchange of oxygen, carbon dioxide and cellular waste throughout the skin. This is a significant difference in skin health procedures. A fully occlusive treatment, like petrolatum, prevents normal TEWL and stops the ingress of oxygen necessary for epidermal skin cells. Further, occlusion of the skin surges the risks of toxicity and decreases the protection of the skin's normal pH mantle (data on file).

The Nutrashield is formulated with a exceptional blend of silicones that resist wash off up to 5 washings. The extensive performance of Nutrashield is most likely due to the add-on of divinyldimethicone/ dimethicone copolymer, which has an internal phase viscosity that is greater than 100,000,000 cst in viscosity (data on file). Like all Remedy products, Nutrashield brings the Olivamine nutrients to provide a healing technique.

Dr. Darlene McCord's RemedyŽ Olivamine Calazime Skin Protectant Paste

Developed by Dr. Darlene McCord

*Remedy Olivamine Calazime Skin Protectant Paste has a higher viscosity (thickness) than other skin pastes

*Nourishes skin, helps treat and prevent diaper rash, wet and broken skin

*Calazime dries light exudates from compromised skin

*Menthol cools aggravated skin and calms inflamed flesh

Protection of the skin from further rundown may at times entail the use of an occlusive skin care product. Special consideration should be used when an occlusive dressing is selected and one of the key reasons is to deliver zinc oxide to the treatment site. Zinc oxide is an excellent choice for treating skin that has dermatitis or has an odor. It protects skin from episodes of incontentance.

The Calazime aids from its ability to be used of gentle skin. Different from many zinc products, Remedy uses highly cultivated, micronized zinc. For this reason, the abrasion associate with other products is not inherent in the cream. The product is non-irritating, non-sensitizing and delivers the greatest opportunity to attain the objective of treating the skin without disturbing the delicate skin cells in the skin's most outer layer. The Calazime contains Olivamine; proprietary blend of vitamins, amino acids, Hydroxytyrosol and MSM that in combination nourish the skin and offer cells protective nutrients.

* Remedy Olivamine Cleansing Lotion helps cleanse, moisturize, protect and nourish the skin in one application

* Leaves skin feeling new and soft

* No-rinse lotion formula cleanses and eliminates sticky barriers and pastes, avoiding unwarranted friction on the skin

Cleansing is not only the first step in the skin care procedure, it is extremely important. The key to effective cleansing is mildness. When working with skin that is damaged or at risk, the protection of the stratum corneum is vital in the healing process. Cleansing with products that are non-irritating, non-sensitizing and pH balanced provides the best chance to achieve the objective of cleansing the skin without upsetting the delicate equilibrium of lipids that remain metabolically on skin's most outer layer.

The Cleansing Lotion is a multi-task product. While delivering all of the safety features outlined above, it still purifies, moisturizes and offers a protective barrier in a one-step method. On patients with just minimal skin breakdown, this may be enough to complete the process.

For Patients with more serious skin breakdown as shown in the study, it may take a blend of products. Each product in the line has the key product advantage over any other product; Olivamine is a proprietary blend of vitamins, amino acids, hydroxytyrosol and MSM that in combination nourish the skin and provide cells with protective nutrients.
