Excellent product for alleviating symptoms caused by sodium lauryl sulphate (detergent)
on 22 March 2012
I have had horrendous blisters and rashes on my left hand for nearly a year now due to sodium lauryl sulphate (detergent) in both shampoo and washing up liquid. I must have spent over £500 in the last year trying to find both a soap and creme to moisturise my skin without avail.(Take note a lot of bars of cleansing products are not SOAP if they contain the detergent sodium lauryl and laureth sulphate, even though they are placed on the soap counter in most supermarkets and pharamaceutical stores). Pharmacists I have spoken to have recommended hydrocortisone to try and alleviate the problem of which I am extremely reluctant to use because of the thinning of skin that it causes, plus it can only be used for 7 days maximum.I have had to wear rubber gloves for household tasks and cotton gloves to sleep in due to the lesions caused but have still not felt comfortable, and as a result not rested, have been irritated and bad tempered.
This wonderful stuff (Pine Tar Soap) came this morning and I feel as if I have died and woke up in heaven with the relief that I have felt after only afew washes with it. I must have washed my hands 16 times today just to keep checking that it is working. Already after only eight hours of using this I can feel my hands calming down. I am so happy that I have cried with relief of not having to scratch scratch scratch and feel the sensation of angry itchy pain. The manufacturers of this stuff, I feel, are akin to angels. At last I will have a peaceful night's sleep. My utmost thanks to them for making this, it is absolutely wonderful. If you have skin irritation due to detergents DO NOT
Hesitate to buy this. It will save you pain, time, money and make you feel much less irritated.
Thank you once again..........I still cannot believe the itch has gone in such a short time....don't ever stop selling it.
