How it works
Do you suffer from a dry, itchy or inflammatory skin condition, such as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, hives, acne or mild boils?
In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), these types of dermatological issues are often seen as being caused by an energetic imbalance in which there is too much Dampness in the body, often accompanied by excess Wind and/or Heat.
Skin problems that are caused by Damp-Heat tend to be characterised by redness, inflammation, swellings, and blisters or sores that contain or secrete pus or fluid (as may be seen in eczema, dermatitis or acne), while those involving Damp-Wind tend to be very itchy, and may come and go unpredictably (like hives).
Fusion® Skin Tonic contains a synergistic blend of Chinese and Western herbs traditionally used to help relieve eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, hives and non-specific rashes, and to promote the healing of cuts, scratches and other minor wounds.
In Chinese medicine terms, this formula revitalises the skin and improves its texture and tone via several mechanisms. For example, Fang Feng (also known as Wind Protector) and Tribulus dispel excess Wind and Dampness (to relieve itching and pain), and Dong Quai and Peony invigorate and nourish the Blood (which in turn nourishes the skin).
These and other Chinese herbs in Skin Tonic are supported by the Western herb Burdock, which is traditionally regarded as having beneficial effects on skin conditions by supporting detoxification, acting as a blood purifier and aiding the elimination of metabolic wastes.
