Ichthyosis

Ichthyosis is a family of genetic skin diseases characterized by dry, scaling skin that may be thickened or very thin.  Dermatologists estimate that there are at least twenty varieties of ichthyosis, with a wide range of severity and symptoms.

The top layer of skin, called the stratum corneum, is made up of flattened, dead skin cells.  In normal skin, the stratum corneum renews itself at a constant rate; the cells on top are shed invisibly as new cells are generated.  In some types of ichthyosis, there are too many cells being formed, and in other types, the natural shedding process is slowed or inhibited.

When the skin loses moisture, it becomes dry, tight and inelastic.  This rigidity makes moving uncomfortable because it can cause the skin to crack and break open.  RegenaSkin™ is an easily absorbed, fragrance-free cream that can actually improve the skin's flexibility.  RegenaSkin™ was specifically formulated to treat ichthyosis by mimicking the natural oils that are missing from your skin. By moisturizing regularly with our cream you will be able to keep the skin cells moist which will help to loosen scales and control itching.  Join us as we restore our skin and regain our lives!

What People Are Saying



"I am a dermatologist practicing in a high paced, dry hot climate of Dallas, Texas. Due to many emotional and physical stresses (climate, etc) that my patients and their families face, I see many cases of xerosis (dry skin) as well as eczema, atopic dermatitis and ichthyosis. These skin conditions are, unfortunately, common and can affect people of any age, sex or ethnicity. I typically must put people on prescription strength medications to get them on the road to healing, however, if they are not caring for their skin in the proper manner, they will never completely recover. One of the most important steps in any treatment plan for xerosis, eczema or atopic dermatitis is proper use of soaps and emollients. In my practice, one of the most successful things I have found is RegenaSkin™ cream. I have found it to be super moisturizing and quite protective. My patients have all raved about it and often thank me for suggesting it. Many of them tell me it is superior to any cream they have tried in the past. I also appreciate the personalized service that the RegenaSkin™ founder, Kimberly Bearden, delivers. I believe she genuinely cares for each person that uses her product."

"I have ichthyosis vulgaris. I have tried many products over the years to help with the buildup of scaly skin on my legs. About a year ago I began using RegenaSkin™. After two months there was a dramatic reduction in the scaly skin on my legs. There is also much improved hydration and overall skin appearance. RegenaSkin™ is quickly absorbed, not greasy or sticky like some products I have tried. I use it on my legs 2 - 3 times a day and on my entire body after a shower. I am thrilled to be able to use just one product and have such great results. And, it is very reasonably priced. Thank you, Kim."

As time goes by I have continued using RegenaSkin™ to treat my ichthyosis and have noticed a difference in how long I stay moisturized. I last longer through the day than I have before. It has taken some time to get to this point, but it was worth it.
