This cream was formulated because a dear family friend had broken an ankle which resulted in pins/rod/cast for 8 wks. He is also a diabetic. When the cast was removed his skin was really bad, very red, raw and tender.
The above blend was created to help the skin heal. To assist in adding tone and elasticity to the skin. It helped to decrease the puffiness and redness and strengthens the tissue.
He was very very pleased and used it every day. His comments were that is was soothing as well as helped his skin heal quicker than ever. The redness was gone almost entirely after 1 application.
