Turmeric has been used as a treatment for very dry, inflamed and eczema-prone skin since Egyptian times. It’s also been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for treating skin inflammation and eczema for over 1500 years.

Turmeric has been used as a treatment for very dry, inflamed and eczema-prone skin since Egyptian times. It’s also been used in Indian Ayurvedic medicine for treating skin inflammation and eczema for over 1500 years.

This spice root, grown in southeast India and Asia, is a member of the ginger family. This spice is considered as sacred to natives and is included in multiple rituals, including an Indian bride beauty ritual to create glowing, soft skin.

Turmeric has powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory actions due to its two active molecules Turmerone and Curcumin.

This power spice is hard to use on the skin as it doesn’t easily sink in. Through history it was used in a poultice and also drunk in a tea to gain its benefits.

However, a new butter has managed to blend turmeric actives into a 100% organic butter base to deliver a high level of moisturization and skin calming benefits.

Biochemica® Turmeric Butter is a patented 100% organic skin butter containing high potency turmeric actives.

The  unique ‘butter base’ is made from bisabolol, a natural essential oil taken from German chamomile (Matricaria recutita).

Bisabolol has been shown to improve the skin’s absorption of turmeric. It’s also known to have anti-irritant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties.

Biochemica® Turmeric Butter has been proven to deliver fast-acting moisturisation to very dry skin.

In a  test to evaluate skin surface hydration levels, Biochemica® Turmeric Butter was measured against cocoa butter. The study found that Biochemica® Turmeric butter beat cocoa butter at hydrating skin after two hours.

It was also tested for Transepidermal Water Loss (TEWL) against an petroleum-based ointment. Biochemica® Turmeric butter matched the petroleum product’s moisture-retaining effects but in less time.

Turmeric Butter has now been combined with hypoallergenic donkey milk and cardiospermum vine extract into a super rescue salve for skin prone to eczema and extreme dryness.

Hydrosil Turmeric Butter & Hypoallergenic Milk Salve helps bring relief for patches of very dry, sore and eczema prone skin.
