What would I use NutriBiotic Skin Ointment for?
This natural formulation was created to promote healthy skin tissue and provide protection from unwanted skin conditions. It can be used topically for such things as scrapes, scratches, and cuts. It can also be used on the lips and in the mouth.
Why is the Lysine in there?
Lysine has been clinically shown to inhibit the life cycle of the herpes virus. One of the nine essential amino acids that the body doesn't produce on its own, it also has soothing and reparative qualities that make it perfect for use in a topical ointment.
Why did you include antioxidant vitamins?
It has been shown that skin responds to topically applied antioxidants, and that the antioxidants can help to prevent free radical damage, even at the skin's surface. Since the healing process, like all other life processes, produces increased amounts of free radicals, NutriBiotic thought they should address the need of this increased damage rate. Vitamin A and E are the classic skin vitamins too. Both have emollient and humectant qualities, which encourage cell regeneration. Vitamin C applied topically is gaining popularity in cosmetic preparations because of its ability to undo skin damage.
I get fever blisters. Can I use it on or near my mouth?
Despite our warning on the packaging, yes you can. The skin ointment does not contain a single ingredient that cannot be eaten. It can be used for certain conditions in the nose, mouth, and ears. The Skin Ointment is pH neutral, so it won't sting. The antiseptic ingredients are all commonly used in preparations to treat a number of delicate conditions, including vaginal yeast infections and other genital infections. Apply the product to the affected area with a cotton swab to prevent contamination of the tube.
Can it be used on infants and children?
Absolutely. Skin Ointment is safe and gentle for the whole family to use. It works great during cold season to help heal the chafing and rawness caused by runny noses and abrasive tissues. It also is a fabulous remedy for windburn and sunburn. And because of its antiseptic properties, it makes a terrific first aid cream that won't sting upon application.
The NutriBiotic Story
In 1980, after nearly ten years in the nutritional supplement industry, NutriBiotic was founded based on the principle that everyone deserves good health. Inspired by the research and recommendations of the world's only two-time Nobel Laureate, Linus Pauling, Ph.D., they began work on development of a variety of forms and dosages of Vitamin C and other nutrients. They felt that the public should have the best possible variety of the best possible nutrients at the best possible price, and their initial successes with their family of products showed that you thought so too.
Soon after NutriBiotic began filling the need for quality nutritional supplements, they found another need - the need for high quality, nutrient dense protein in a hypoallergenic form for the chemical and food sensitive individual. Their Rice Protein powder meets that need without soy, milk, egg, wheat or yeast.
In 1987 NutriBiotic pioneered the process and use of grapefruit seed extract. You will find the fruits of their labors in their range of products containing Citricidal, including their skin cleansers, shower gel and bubble bath, dental gel, deodorant stick, foot powder, multi-purpose liquid concentrate, CapsulesPlus, and more.
The folks at NutriBiotic stand committed to providing the very best for you and your family and are pleased to be able to offer you an ever-expanding range of quality nutritional supplements and personal care formulas developed with the intent of protecting and enhancing your health.
