What are Petrochemicals?
Petrochemicals are manufactured from crude petroleum. One of the most common petrochemicals found in skin care products is petrolatum, also known as petroleum jelly.

Why should petroleum jelly be avoided?
    * It is listed as a probable human carcinogen by the European Union (EU).
    * It is commonly contaminated with Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHS). PAHS are strongly linked to a wide variety of detrimental diseases.
    * It tends to interfere with the body's own natural moisturising mechanism, leading to dry skin and chapping.

Papaya Fade Cream - Dry Skin, Stretch Marks, Scars (75g) by Pure Phytocare - a Pure Nutraceutical.
PURE Gotu Fade™ contains Centella asiatica (gotu kola), which has a long history of traditional use to speed healing in many skin conditions, dating as far back as 3000 years ago. More recent research has identified its active constituents promote collagen synthesis and exhibit anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Phytocare’s Gotu Fade™ has been carefully formulated to deliver the healing benefits of gotu kola with high quality herbal extracts and oils, in combination with the nutritive benefits of papaya.

These ingredients promote wound healing by moisturising, soothing and preventing the progression of scars and stretch marks. The natural formula contains only the purest ingredients backed by Natrue certification. Gotu Fade™ contains gotu kola and tamanu oil to promote wound healing and reduce the development of scarring. Triterpenes are considered the most active component of gotu kola.

These constituents have been demonstrated to prevent scarring by modulating the metabolism of connective tissue, assisting the wound healing process and improving tissue microcirculation. Specifically, in vitro studies have shown gotu kola extracts stimulate collagen synthesis, proline incorporation and fibronectin levels. It also increases anti-inflammatory signal, PGI2 and inhibits platelet aggregation caused by pro-inflammatory markers.

Tamanu oil is a traditional remedy originating from Polynesia and South East Asia. The oil is extracted from the nut kernel of the Tamanu tree. It has been widely used as a traditional topical aid for promoting the formation of new tissue and accelerating wound healing. As a folk medicine, it is applied to cuts, abrasions, burns, stings, sunburn, and dry skin. Xanthones contained in the oil also posses anti-inflammatory action.

Papaya provides nutrients important for wound healing. It is a rich source of vitamins, minerals and amino acids required for laying down new tissue. Gotu Fade™ may also assist to reduce the appearance of stretch marks. A Cochrane review of creams for the prevention of stretch marks in pregnancy found a cream containing gotu kola significantly reduced the incidence of developing stretch marks.

The trial included 80 pregnant women and overall, 56% of the placebo group developed stretch marks compared with 34% in the active group. This may be attributed to gotu kolas ability to promote collagen synthesis and maintain skin elasticity. Papaya and tamanu oil also promote skin elasticity and may also assist in reducing stretch marks. Gotu Fade™ contains ingredients that moisturise and keep skin well hydrated.

Jojoba and rosehip oils, and chamomile extracts have been included to soothe dry, cracked and irritated skin. Their anti-inflammatory properties calm aggravated skin and protect against the harsh elements. Fermented papaya is valued for its ability to hydrate skin whilst its concentrated source of nutrients and probiotics help soothe the most sensitive skin types. These ingredients, in combination with gotu kola and tamanu oil make Gotufude™ a nourishing cream for all dry, irritating skin conditions and a fabulous remedy for healing minor wounds and abrasions.
