Our laboratory produces a range of topical creams and lotions to help treat various skin conditions such as eczema, acne, psoriasis and rosacea. We are happy to work with your dermatologist or doctor in order to create a synergistic blend of ingredients that are able to effectively treat your condition.
Prescription creams available include:
(1) Tacrolimus Ointment – Tacrolimus is used in the treatment of eczema, particularly atopic dermatitis. Tacrolimus is not a steroid drug but an immunomodulator which inhibits the immune system from attacking normal skin cells. It is applied twice daily on any part of the body effected (except mucosa). It is very effective in patients where conventional treatments have not worked. An important advantage of tacrolimus is that unlike steroids, it does not cause skin thinning (atrophy), or other steroid related side-effects. More information is available on request.
(2) Clobetasol Cream – Is a powerful steroidal antiinflammatory cream used to help control eczema.
(3) Erythromycin Gel – We produce a 2% erythromycin gel in an alcoholic gel base similar to Eryacne gel which has been discontinued for the treatment of acne.
(4) Ivermectin Cream – a novel treatment used for rosacea

Natural Acne Treatments – Vitamin B3 (niacinamide) creams have been shown to be a potent anti-inflammatory that does not induce bacterial resistance like many prescription acne treatments. It was shown in a clinical study to improve 82% of patients with acne compared to 68% treated with clindomycin (a prescription acne treatment). We also combine the niacinamide with lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant with anti-inflammatory actions to further improve the action of this cream. When applied topically this combination is very effective for the eradication of mild to moderate acne break outs.
Natural Psoriasis Treatment – Stucker et al performed a comparison of the vitamin D3 analog calcipotriol cream (prescription cream) to the recently developed vitamin B12 cream containing avocado oil. During the 12 week trial, patients applied cream preparations of calcipotriol or vitamin B12 with avocado to psoriatic plaques twice daily. Overall, the effects of calcipotriol were more rapidly achieved than that of the vitamin B12 formulation but only significantly after the 8 weeks. By the end of the 12 weeks, there were no significant differences in the efficacy of the two treatments. In terms of tolerability, vitamin B12 with avocado oil was significantly more tolerable than calcipotriol.
