Why Does Dermasolve Contain Eggs – Ovasome® Technology?
Many people have questioned the significance of using eggs in our Dermasolve Psoriasis Treatment products. The basis for using eggs comes from the study of how our bodies heal. There are several studies that show proper nutrition is critical to speed the healing process of our body. Most of these studies are based on oral applications where they study people who eat daily meals that fulfill the bodies required nutrition daily versus those that don’t. The people in these studies who eat a daily nutritious diet are shown to heal much more quickly than those that don’t. But since these studies are based on oral nutrition Dermasolve wanted to find a topical form of nutrition for the skin that would have the same benefits.
Using eggs in skin care products is not new. In fact, the use of eggs or more specifically parts of eggs in skin care products has been around for centuries. In fact, during ancient Egyptian times Cleopatra is known to have used eggs whites in her daily beauty routine. Marie Antoinette is also known for using egg whites on her face during the 17th century. The egg whites were used because they tighten the skin and provided protein which moisturized. Unfortunately, by only using the egg whites they were throwing away the egg yolk which contained most of the nutrition of the egg.
CHALLENGES IN FORMULATING
So what makes Ovasome® Technology so special? To understand this, you need to understand a little bit about making skin care creams and cooking with eggs. Dermasolve Psoriasis Treatment products use the entire egg (white and yolk).
When manufacturing a skin care product, you must create what is called an emulsion. An emulsion is taking two substances that would normally not stay mixed together and combining them in a way that allows them to stay mixed together. For example, in cooking if you take fat and water put them in a jar, shake it up and then wait, the fat will float to the top of the water and separate. An emulsion would keep these two together. Making a skin care emulsion is the same. You simply combine all the water-based ingredients in one pot and all the oil-based ingredients in another. You heat them to the right temperatures and then you combine them under high speed mixing. If you formulated correctly when the mixture cools it will form an emulsion (cream).
But adding eggs to an emulsion presents a new set of problems. In cooking, if you put eggs in hot water you will get boiled eggs. If you add eggs to oil under high speed mixing you can get mayonnaise. To create our Dermasolve Psoriasis Treatment formulations we needed to find a way to incorporate the eggs into our formulations without cooking them and that would still maintain the full nutritional benefit of the eggs.
Unfortunately, we cannot tell you how we do this since this is our proprietary Ovasome® Technology and what makes Dermasolve so unique and beneficial. But for those of you who think you can just crack an egg, put in on your skin and hope that it helps your skin condition it simply won’t work. We spent many months developing this technology and years to fine tune it.
Nutrition in skin care products have become key elements in formulations we buy today. Think about how many creams and lotions you have seen advertised touting ingredients such as – Retinol (Vitamin A), Vitamin E, Copper, Zinc and Hyaluronic Acid – just to name a few.
So, what’s in an egg that makes it so great? Basically, all the ingredients listed above and every nutrient necessary for life can be found in an egg. If you think about it a chick survives on what’s in an egg until it hatches. In fact, there are over 70 vitamins, minerals and proteins that can be found naturally in an egg. Ovasome® Technology brings all these nutrients to Dermasolve Psoriasis Treatment products.
We are often asked about using our products if you are allergic to eggs. In general, you should always consult your doctor before using a product if you have any type of allergy. Most egg allergies are oral allergies and the reaction occurs when someone eats and ingests the eggs. Typically, if you can touch an eggshell, white or yolk then you should not have any reaction using Dermasolve products. We always recommend doing a small patch test before using the products to be safe.
