HEMP AND PODIATRIC MEDICINE
BY ROBERT BLAINE, DPM, FACFS, QME
The addition of hemp extract to Revitaderm40 makes dermatological and clinical sense. We added hemp extract to our urea-based product and tested a patient population of 25, all who complained of thick, dry, and itchy skin. Our observed clinical results warranted development of a new product, Revitaderm40+.
We already understand that urea is a critical epidermal component that contributes to skin hydration. Xerotic skin is frequently characterized with reduced hygroscopic potential leading to epidermal hyper-proliferation and inhibited desquamation which we see clinically as hyper-keratotic and occasionally pruritic skin. We also readily understand that topically applied urea assists in skin hydration, thins hyper-keratotic areas and supports proper barrier function.
Research is showing that topically applied hemp has an inhibitory effect on hyper-proliferation of keratinocyte proliferation AND inhibits inflammatory responses noted with psoriasis and pruritus. Combining Revitaderm40 urea infused with hemp extract proved to be stable at room temperature, efficacious for patients with thick, dry and inflamed skin, and is now being added to our line of dermatological medical products.
