Psoriasis is an auto-immune disease characterized by rapid multiplication of skin cells. Psoriasi is commonly seen around the skin folds and other areas such as the scalp. The affected skin appears as red patches covered by thick, dry and silvery-white scales. Usually, those who are affected with psoriasis may develop psoriatic arthritis over time. Psoriasis is also a chronic disease that may come and go. Psoriasis cannot be cured, though it can be treated. A wide variety of treatment for psoriasis are available; from creams, lotions that moisturize, to otc drugs that block histamine to counter the itchiness, to dietary supplements with zinc, to holistic and homeopathic methods – name it! But two of the most popular treatments today are aloe vera and natralia psoriasis cream. Comparing these two may help you in selecting the best cream available to treat your psoriasis.
Aloe vera is a species of succulent plant. Aloe vera thrives in arid climates and is widely distributed in Africa, India and other parts of the world. Aloe vera is usually used in herbal medicine because of its medicinal properties. Preliminary evidence from scientific studies suggest that Aloe vera extracts are useful in the treatment of wounds and healing burns, skin infections, cysts, diabetes, and elevated blood lipids. These are attributed to the compounds present in the plant such as polysaccharides, mannas, anthraquinones and lectins. A recent study concludes that the use of Aloe vera for the healing of first to second degree burns. In addition to its wound healing abilities, internal intake has been linked with better blood glucose levels in people who suffer from diabetes. Aloe vera extrace have been used also as an immunostimulant that aids in fighting cancer.
In a study conducted in Belgium, 60 psoriasis patients where subjected to a double blind placebo test. The study showed that Aloe vera had a cure rate of 83.3% compared to a placebo. Patients’ psoriasis were seen to be reduced in number and there was also a reduction in skin discoloration. There were no side effects seen on the patients. The Aloe vera used in the study was a 0.5% Aloe vera extract added in a hydrophilic cream emolient.
Natralia offers a wide variety of unique and patented natural skin care remedies. These products are made in Australia, and are derived from natural and organic components. Natralia products aim to relieve and treat acne, eczema, psoriasis, dry skin, scarring, stretch marks, muscle pain and cramps.

Natralia psoriasis creams have been formulated with natural ingerdients and are suitable for use on young children and vegetarians. The cream does not contain gluten, yeast, artificial colors, sls, parabens and nut oils that are big no-no’s when it comes to eczema and psoriasis. The cream itself is mild, soothing and moisturizing to relieve the dryness and itchiness brought about by psoriasis. The cream contains specifically chosen homeopathic ingredients, herbal extracts and essential oils including lavander oil, licorice extract, avocado oil and evening primrose oil. The cream should be used directly on affected areas to relieve itching, irritation, redness, flaking and scaling, and should be applied 2-3 times daily.
Aloe vera and Natralia psoriasis cream are two promising products that relieve the symptoms of psoriasis. Both are safe and without side effects, unlike corticosteroids that may do more harm than good. I have laid some facts here. You decide which is better, but, I guess trying both won’t hurt.
